Onkyo A-9150 vs Cambridge Audio CXA60

Onkyo A-9150 review

Here we have an equal output power for both models. It is 30W (8 Ohms). The stereo amplifier is equipped with an AKM AK4452 DAC (32 bit / 768 kHz) and a DIDRC filter, which makes it possible to increase linearity and minimize intermodulation distortion in the ultra-high frequency range, which translates into lower noise and interference in the audible region. According to the manufacturer, such a combination of a DAC with a filter guarantees the most realistic and accurate sound supply, in which there is no so-called “synthetic aftertaste” characteristic of digital sources. Fans of vinyl players will not be offended, since the Onkyo A-9150 is equipped with a MM / MC phono input. Onkyo A-9150

Cambridge Audio CXA60 review

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.
