Excellent Pre-Amp & DAC
I purchased this unit along with a Cambridge CXA81, and I am very happy with it! To be clear, I am happy with the way it sounds - clear and rich. The media player aspect... not so much. I'll clarify: Pros: * Exceptional pre-amplifier will allow you to listen to Tidal Masters at an up-sampled rate th...

Cambridge Audio CXN V2 Review « 7Review
This is where the CXN V2 more than excels. It’s a lovely slice of full-width design that makes navigating and accessing multiple sources at speed as complicated as falling off a log and whenever you switch it on, it simply sounds fab.

Awesome Hardware and Sound, supporting App lacking.
I've only had this a week, but so far I really love this new component to my system. Over the past few years I have systematically gotten rid of all my old cassettes and 99% of my CDs. I have over 2200 digital albums in a library on my NAS drive. Although I have a nice Bose SoundTouch and stream mus...

Ok, I was an analog
Ok, I was an analog fan and was hesitant to try a streamer/DAC as I was worried about the music quality.
After reading the reviews I was set to delve in to the digital world.
I set up a premium music source (Spotify) and hooked up the Cambridge. Wow! This was a great choice for my initiation.

Cambridge Audio CXN V2 Network Audio Streamer and CXA81 Integrated Amplifier - The Absolute Sound
“From the Land of Great Rock Music.” “Great British Sound!” Both of these components came with these stickers affixed to them. And that worked for me. Partly because I have a long-time affinity for British rock (particularly from the 70s, 80s, 90s), and partly because I tend to be drawn to hi-fi equ...
If music is what you’re after on older equipment...
If you are looking at this product you probably self identify as borderline audiophile... of course true audiophiles would need a product at least 5x the cost. So.. for those looking to revive an older system with some new tech... and have searched everywhere to buy non made in China products... und...
