Cambridge Audio CXA60 review

The Cambridge Audio CXA 60 is equipped with inputs for five linear signal sources (four inputs on the RCA connectors on the rear panel and one on the 3.5 mm mini-jack connector on the front), as well as optical and coaxial inputs. The built-in DAC of the amplifier is based on the Wolfson WM8740 chip, and is capable of receiving a signal with parameters up to 24 bit / 192 kHz. In addition, the device has a USB connector, to which you can connect the BT100 Bluetooth receiver (sold separately), with support for the improved aptX audio codec. Using reliable screw terminals, you can connect two pairs of speakers to the amplifier. Cambridge Audio CXA60
