CXA 80

Power, precision and poise. Building on the award winning foundation of the CXA60, the CXA80 adds an extra 20watts of power giving 80watts of pure precision which creates a strikingly vivid soundstage. The addition of balanced inputs and USB connectivity for your computer based music library offers the solution for every source.

 

HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE REST

Rated at 80 Watts per channel the CXA80 has power in reserve for even the most demanding speakers. But it’s the way in which this power is delivered that put’s the CXA80 completely out of reach from its competitors. The entire internal layout is designed to minimize left and right interference (crosstalk) and provide astonishing stereo separation so you can virtually place each instrument in your room. It has symmetrical and separate transformer taps for the left and right channels, twin rectifiers and separate PSUs. When combined together these ‘dual mono’ features deliver incredible presence and depth to your music and a wide, enveloping soundstage that’s normally only available in amplifiers costing many times more.

EFFORTLESS POWER

Our engineers spent months to create the unique separated circuit board because they knew it would eventually provide the sound they wanted. As for power they were similarly insistent on sticking to what they knew would deliver. They used a class AB amplifier to minimise crossover distortion so music sounds purer and more controlled. An audiophile-grade oversize toroidal transformer provides huge power reserves, a consistent audio signal (no clipping) and a sensational bass performance. Finally, an ALPs film type volume pot was recruited for its accurate volume control and superb low level channel balance so the volume is always perfect across both left and right channels at whatever volume you’re enjoying.

 

 

BRAINS AND BEAUTY

In use, the CXA80 is a delight. The floating effect of the chassis, the brushed finish, the easy-to-read front panel, they’re all designed to create a hi-fi amplifier that’s as beautiful on the outside as it’s well-engineered on the inside. Whatever the source, the CXA80 enables you to re-discover your favourite music.

BRING THE BEST OUT OF YOUR DIGITAL MUSIC

To enjoy more of the music you love, the CXA80 has been designed from the ground up with digital sources in mind. Using a high-specification 24-bit/192kHz WM8740 DAC chip from Wolfson (a very premium digital to analogue converter), the CXA80 offers a powerful upgrade for all your digital sources and simply connecting it to the digital out of the dedicated CXC CD transport also creates a perfect partnership. The result is that any digital music soars to new heights, reveals new depths and can be enjoyed like never before.

 

 

CONNECTIONS

Designed to work with as wide a range of separates as possible, we engineered the CXA80 with both digital and traditional analogue inputs. Digital support is in the form of S/PDIF co-axial and TOSLINK digital inputs, plus an asynchronous USB Audio input - so you can play your music directly from your PC or Mac.

Add an optional BT100 Bluetooth dongle and you’ve access to aptX high-quality streaming, opening up a world of possibilities from your paired device. Analogue options include a high quality balanced XLR input, four sets of RCA inputs and a front 3.5mm Aux jack.

CX Series Components

Each components in our CX range has been built to excel, to make you re-evaluate what's audible in your favourite music. Totally focused on getting the very best from your digital sources, the CX range has seven components, each a reference point in its class and designed without compromise.

 

 

Our starting point was to build a network player - the CXN - that is simply to use and delivers audiophile quality from your preferred digital source. CXA integrated amps follow, built using all our technical know-how and both with on-board DACs for the CXC CD transport and all your other digital sources.

 

 

The jewels of the range are the two AV receivers, the CXR120 and CXR200. Taking everything we know about hi-fi and delivering a powerful audiophile home cinmea experience, they're also network streaming devices and have the capability to deliver sound like you've never hear it before.
