Rewarding Performance

Cambridge shouldn’t have favorites but CXN100 is something else. Hi-fi specialists and their listeners loved its predecessor, just wait until they hear this. CXN100 will instantly transform a classic hi-fi stack into a system with a bright future. And because it’s a network device, CXN100’s firmware can be upgraded remotely, via Cambridge’s StreamMagic app, to receive the latest services.


  • ESS ES9028Q2M SABRE32 Reference DAC
  • StreamMagic Gen4 module
  • Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, Qobuz & Deezer built-in
  • High-resolution Internet Radio
  • Roon Ready
  • Multiroom Capability
  • Flexible Digital Connectivity

Forever Changes

The first thing you’ll notice is the big hi-res color screen – all the better for album artwork. We’ve changed the volume control too, to do one thing well with a reassuringly tactile response. Inside, we take things up a level with a new ESS ES9028Q2M SABRE32 DAC and our Gen 4 StreamMagic module. Redesigned, expertly tuned, and simplified circuitry for a purer signal path, complete the picture.

Ready for the Revolution?

The convenience of streamed music was once let-down by its quality. That’s no longer the case – thanks to better CODECS, broadband speeds and products like CXN100. It’s designed to deliver the effortless accessibility of the digital format, but with the uncompromised sonic excellence that comes with over 55 years of designing hi-fi, and well over a decade perfecting our StreamMagic platform.

Whatever you Want

CXN100 has free and subscription hi-res streaming services, like internet radio, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect with MQA, Qobuz, and Deezer on board for the best available sound quality. With Apple Airplay2 and Chromecast built-in, you can access Apple Music, Amazon Music, BBC Sounds and more. CXN100 is also Roon Ready, consolidating your digital music browsing experience in one place.

The Whole Story

CXN100’s circuitry has been totally re-designed to capitalize on the ESS ES9028Q2M SABRE32 Digital Analogue Converter’s 32-bit capabilities. We’ve been able to simplify the audio signal path and tune our carefully chosen components’ performance to make sure that nothing comes between you and the original recording. The result? A warmth, depth and nuance not often associated with digital audio.


If the DAC is the CXN100’s heart, then our StreamMagic Gen 4 module is its brain. It runs our custom-made streaming platform and app, which we’ve perfected for well-over a decade. It’s responsible for the network player’s slick, seamless and stable listening experience from any digital source. CXN100’s firmware can also be upgraded over-the-air to receive updates and access to new services.

Control. Pure and Simple

A beautifully smooth volume dial and large color display take the experience of playing music from CXN100 up a level. The StreamMagic app is your remote control, giving you intuitive command of connected sources – curate playlists, program pre-sets or browse albums from the comfort of your listening position. CXN100 also works with the physical remote control supplied with CXC and CXA components.

Designed for Life

With elegant, minimalistic lines, crafted from aluminum and steel, CXN100 will endure physically and aesthetically for many years to come. Its ability to receive over-air updates should repay your investment too. Making products that last is just one of the ways that we can minimize our impact on the planet and maximize your listening pleasure. After all, great sound shouldn’t cost the Earth.
