Let Your Music Move You

The CXA61 is designed to bring you closer to the music you love. It’s designed to put you right at the heart of your favorite recordings, telling you the story of every note in the most natural, most effortless, most detailed way imaginable. Analogue or digital, lo-fi or hi-res, CXA61 lets the music take you where you want to go.

Uncompromised Sound

CXA61 has been engineered, refined and finessed with only one objective in mind: to deliver the most thrillingly musical sound you’ve ever experienced. Every choice of component, and every engineering decision, has been made in order to minimize coloration of the sound and maximize its accuracy. Cambridge has drawn on every one of its 50 years of experience to make CXA61 its most accomplished integrated amplifier yet.

The Whole Of The Music.

Because it’s designed to deliver the maximum musical experience no matter where the music is coming from, CXA61 has an entirely re-engineered digital board featuring the industry-standard ESS Sabre ES9010 K2M digital-to-analogue convertor. CXA61 can bring digital audio files up to state-of-the-art 32bit/384kHz and DSD256 resolutions vividly to life, combining convenience with performance in a way unheard-of until now.

Power Without Corruption

An oversized toroidal transformer gives CXA61 a muscular 60 watts of power for each channel. Painstaking engineering gives it super-low levels of distortion and supreme electrical efficiency. The result is an amplifier with limitless reserves of power, ready to maximize the dynamic potential of any loudspeakers and able to play at any volume level without stress or distortion.

Complete Musical Freedom

Pair any Bluetooth device to CXA61 to stream up to aptX HD-quality audio. Because there’s no need to compromise your musical experience when you decide to cut the cord.

Sonic Integrity

CXA61 features a reimagined power amp stage with optimized capacitors values, and a revised volume pot designed to offer minimized crosstalk. The result is a clean, short and pure signal path that allows your music unmatched coherence - at any volume.

Partner For Life

The amplifier is the heart and the engine of any system - and CXA61 is able to power your favorite speakers and form the center of your musical experience for years to come.

How effective would the CXA 60 be serving as a preamp?
Mark S on Feb 8, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The CXA61 will work very well as a preamp driving a separate power amplifier. While it has no phono preamp, all input features and Bluetooth make it a simple high performance stereo preamplifier.
I don't need the power from the CXA81, but are there any other reasons to choose it over the CXA61?

  Thanks for your question. Other than the output power difference, the 81 has one pair of balanced XLR inputs for lower noise, separate symmetrical amp topology, and higher dynamic headroom when played at increased volume.
Tone control via remote?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2021
  Thanks for your question. The Cambridge Audio CXA61 does not incorporate any tone controls.
