A TRUE MUSIC AND MOVIE HUB.
Connect it to your TV, your projector or your AVR and it not only makes everything look amazing but it also sounds better than anything else out there. It’ll play virtually any disc you have and stream music through the on board network connectivity. And everything benefits from our bespoke upsampling technology so you hear the last drop of detail.
THE PERFECT AUDIO PERFORMANCE
The CXU features 5 separate Wolfson WM8740 DACs and our proprietary ATF audio upsampling (more info on that genius tech here). Through these, all your inputs get upsampled to 24-bit/192kHz hi-res quality, meaning all your audio has even more acute detail and warm depth. You’ll be able to enjoy musical nuances that you’ve never heard before in tracks and films that you’ve heard a thousand times. A dedicated 2-channel analogue stereo output also guarantees the best possible stereo sound, and Pure Audio mode allows shut down of all video processing to prevent any audio signal interference resulting in a true hi-fi performance when it’s needed.
VIDEO THAT OPENS YOUR EYES
The CXU uses DARBEE Visual Presence technology to deliver stunning video playback; it provides greater clarity and increases the perception of depth resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience. Processing is adjustable, allowing you to customise the visual enhancement to suit your needs. And for ultimate flexibility, you can set your preferred DARBEE mode individually for each of the different video inputs. To make the most of the powerful video processing, 4k upsampling and 2D to 3D scaling from all video sources are also included, so you can enjoy a cinema quality ‘3D’ experience, whatever the source.
A COMPLETE DIGITAL HUB
Whatever source, the CXU can handle it, making it a true home hub. The CXU has 2 HDMI inputs, digital optical and coaxial audio inputs, and 3 USB inputs allowing connection to almost any source – all up-sampled or processed for the best possible audio or audio-visual experience. The front HDMI input even supports MHL, for exceptional mobile device playback from smart phones or a digital camcorder.
11 AUDIO AND VIDEO SOURCES CAN BE PLAYED THROUGH THE CXU:
HDMI input 1/MHL
HDMI input 2
S/P DIF audio input

An intuitive on-screen colour display and simple, user-friendly controls, plus an easy to use backlit remote mean all of CXU’s features are easy to use, even in the dark. The remote control for the CXU will also control matching Cambridge Audio AVRs or hi-fi amplifiers.NETWORK PLAYBACK
The CXU also has a wired or wireless network connection. This means it can connect to your home network and play back audio, video or photo files from UPnP and DLNA servers and from NAS drives. So you can seamlessly access all your media from the comfort of your sofa and all of it will take advantage of the hi-res upsampling and DARBEE video processing for an incredible home cinema experience.
Separately configurable, twin HDMI outputs send high quality video to multiple displays or 3D video to a display and separate HDMI audio to a non-3D AV receiver. An Audio Return Channel (ARC) is built in too, allowing the audio signal from a connected TV to be sent to the CXU – with no need for a separate audio output from the TV.
