Cambridge Audio CXC CD Transport Overview

The idea behind a CD transport is simple: to separate the drive and laser from the process that converts a digital signal to analog. This separation keeps digital signals intact for as long as possible, postponing analog conversion until the last possible moment. The result? Less signal deterioration and more accurate sound. Cambridge Audio’s CXC CD Transport puts performance at the forefront, featuring the company’s best single-purpose servo drive mechanism and low-noise components. That makes the CXC your ticket to ultra-precise compact disc playback, unlocking more detail and sonic accuracy from your favorite tracks.

Pure digital audio

That’s exactly what the CXC CD Transport produces without the weighty burden of performing complex digital-to-analog processing. The CXC focuses all of its energy on reading a music disc with maximum precision, sending its digital signal to an outboard processor of your choice. The transport’s single-purpose design keeps interference and signal degradation to a minimum, guaranteeing you’ll hear super clean audio loaded with detail.

State of the art drive mechanism

The engineers at Cambridge Audio spared no expense crafting the CXC, endowing it with the company’s top shelf S3 servo drive system. Also found on its flagship 851C Upsampling DAC, CD player, and Preamplifier, the S3 servo specializes in spinning discs at CD specific speeds.  While that means you can’t play some formats like MP3s, it does mean you’ll pull every ounce of data from your music CDs with minimal jitter and distortion. Add to the mix an ultra-low noise toroidal transformer and short signal path PCBs, and the CXC’s digital signal is optimized for clarity.

Low resonance chassis

The CXC’s full metal casework – including its thick brushed aluminum front panel – and robust internal metal chassis are vibration killers, designed to provide the transport enhanced resonance control.    

Build a powerhouse system

Because the CXC CD Transport lacks onboard digital-to-analog conversion, you’ll need to mate it with a capable external processor for music playback. What better choice than Cambridge Audio’s CX Series of integrated amps? After all, these units are designed to function together.  Whether you choose the capable CXA 60 Integrated Amplifier or the top-flight CXA 80 Integrated Amplifier, you’ll enjoy high-performance Wolfson DACs capable of pulling amazing levels of detail from your favorite digital recordings.
