Play Almost Any File, Hear Stellar Sound: Cambridge Audio CXN v2 Network Player (Series 2) Features Intuitive Control, Built-In Quboz and More, Upsamples All Music to 24-Bit/384kHz

The Cambridge Audio CXN v2 network player/streamer (CX Series 2) speaks fluent digital audio, and speaks it with authority. Able to see and take music from your home networks, hard drives, and streaming services, the Roon-ready CXN v2 delivers it all in high-end sound that will have you listening for hours. Driven by core technology found in the award-winning StreamMagic Series, CXN v2 specializes in engaging wireless music playback. Internet radio, TIDAL, Quboz, Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay, and aptX Bluetooth reside here, and every song – no matter the original resolution – gets upsampled by way of Cambridge Audio's ATF2 technology to astonishing 24-bit/384kHz and output via Wolfson 8740 DACs arranged in dual differential configuration. A USB input that allows for 24-bit/192kHz audio directly from a computer complements gapless playback, an intelligent app for easy control, and balanced and unbalanced analog outputs. You get seamless access to your digital library and total control. But that's not all.

Featuring a faster, more powerful processor dubbed the Black Marlin and twice the amount of RAM and Flash storage as its three-time What Hi-Fi? Award-winning predecessor, CXN v2 touts extremely smooth navigation abilities as well as lightning-fast start-up time. It handles files up to 24-bit/192kHz, supports DASH streaming over HTTP for higher-quality streams, and shows off its style with a sexy 4.3-inch color display that invites you to browse by artist, artwork, playlist, and more. All this, compact size (7.7 pounds and 3.4 x 16.9 x 12.2-inch dimensions) and "floating" architecture for a smidgen over a grand? We're in disbelief, too. 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guaranteed.

"Simply the best music streamer around at this price."
What Hi-Fi?, 2020 Best Music Streamer 500-1,000 Euro Award

"It does many things well, has a plethora of features and supported files/streaming services, and, of course, sounds fantastic. The DAC alone is quite impressive at this price."
– Muse Kastanovich, The Absolute Sound

Compatible with 24-Bit/192kHz Files, Upsamples Music to 24-Bit/384kHz
Create harmony between your music and your networked lifestyle. Tuned by Cambridge Audio engineers by ear, CXN v2 takes your music from home networks, hard drives and digital streaming services and extracts every last detail thanks to core DAC technology from the award-winning StreamMagic Series. CXN v2 can play virtually anything, from basic compressed MP3 formats to 24-bit/192kHz master-quality FLAC and WAV files. And play it incredibly well. Its wireless playback capabilities include Internet radio, Quboz, TIDAL, Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay, and aptX Bluetooth. Whichever input the music comes from (wired or wireless) and whatever its original quality or resolution, the powerful digital engine inside CXN v2 upsamples songs to 24-bit/384kHz using polynomial curve-fitting interpolation. Every song will have more acute detail and warm depth, so you'll be able to enjoy nuances that you've never heard before in songs you've heard a thousand times. This is then output via Wolfson WM8740 DACs arranged in dual differential configuration.

Loaded with Connectivity to Suit Your Individual Needs
CXN v2 will play almost any digital file you want. Thanks to huge processing power and slick functionality from Cambridge Audio's StreamMagic platform, it doesn't make a fuss or skip a single beat. It just plays your music instantly. The streamer has mpeg-DASH and HLS compatibility out of the box, which allows for higher-quality, more consistent live streams, creating an intimate Internet radio experience. CXN v2 handles a plethora of playback platforms and options, among them: Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay, and Internet radio; NAS Drive/UPnP compatibility; asynchronous USB, coax, and TOSLINK digital inputs; DSD64 support; and aptX Bluetooth (with optional BT100 receiver).

Incredible Control and Interface
Whether flicking through albums, building playlists, or setting presets, the Cambridge Connect app allows simple and intuitive browsing of all the connected sources from the comfort of your chair. And with CXN v2, you'll find even more control as you'll be able to seek through digital music playing from your desktop, NAS, USB, or Spotify to pinpoint your favorite music moments.
