CX SERIES 2. THE SOUND OF PROGRESS.

  • 80-watts per channel with Class AB amplification for detailed and powerful audio performance
  • Separate, symmetrical left and right channels are carefully engineered to deliver incredible sound-staging
  • Balanced XLR inputs for low noise interference 
  • High Quality DAC - Connect digital sources directly via TOSLINK and Coaxial
  • USB Audio Input accepting up to 32bit/384kHz & DSD 256 digital files from Mac or PC
  • Bluetooth aptX HD built in

Half a decade after the CX range redefined performance at its price point, it’s time to reimagine, reengineer and reinvigorate. The all-new CXA61 and CXA81 integrated amplifiers build on the foundations laid (and the Awards won) by CXA60 and CXA80, but with a fresh and progressive perspective.

The CXA81 is poised, effortless and sophisticated. Its 80 watts per channel give it complete authority over music, and it wrings every emotional and musical nuance from your whole collection.

MAKING THE BEST BETTER

How do you take an admired and successful integrated amplifier, one that’s won respect and plaudits around the world, and make it even better? Well, if you’re a Cambridge Audio engineer, you examine every aspect of the performance - and then you do everything you can to make it ‘more’. More refined, more precise, more engrossing… more musical. The CXA81: it’s everything you loved about the CXA80, but more so.

Impressive Imaging and Sound Positioning

I bought this just for the XLR inputs which more than proved their worth. Minimalistic design as has come to be associated with British audio in general and Cambridge Audio in particular. No bells and whistles; sound output as envisaged by the studio mix. My go-to music piece among others, for testing amps is the 1974 Kraftwerk classic, Autobahn, which has the sound of an old VW air-cooled engine starting up and moving from one side to the other. Impressive imaging!. Could have done with an HDMI input at this price point, but with Cambridge Audio, HDMI is currently Evo territory!!
