Specs and features

It has 30W at 8 Ohms of output power. The amplifier is equipped with a massive toroidal transformer of the audiophile class, which is mounted in the center of the anti-resonant chassis. The device operates in A / B class, which involves significant heating of its output stages. For the most effective cooling, they are mounted on massive radiators, separate for the left and right channels. Thus, the device will cope with the work of speakers with a complex impedance characteristic. The entire amplifier circuit is symmetrical to better separate stereo channels and minimize crosstalk. 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.

Design and build

The Cambridge Audio CXA60 integrated amplifier is made in a metal case with an aluminum front panel of considerable thickness. In its center is the control and display unit, and the handle on the right is designed to perform several functions. In addition to the large volume control knob based on the variable Alps resistor, there are also miniature stereo balance and timbre controls in the low and high frequencies. On the opposite side on the front panel there is a headphone jack and an additional input for portable sources on the mini-jack. The amplifier is equipped with a remote control.

Connectivity

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. 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, the selection of which is done using the buttons on the front panel. Also, the CXA 60 is equipped with an output from the preamplifier, and a connector for connecting an active subwoofer.
