New Cambridge CX Series 2

Cambridge is about to release several new versions of the CX line of gear. I haven’t dug into any upgrades yet, but hopefully they make some nice changes given the price increases.

    So the CXN V2 is getting a $200 price increase?
    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    Shouldn't it be called CXN V3? Or are they raising the price for the same product?

    Cambridge is dropping by the house today so I’m sure I’ll get some information.

    I’ll be looking forward to what you learn, Skip. I was looking at their current transport and wonder if the upcoming CXC is worth the extra $150.

    He just left. From what I've been told, the CXC and CXN V2 aren't really getting any updates more than it is an adjustment. The amplifiers in the line sound like they got some very noticeable improvements, including an upgraded DAC that now does DSD and 32/384.

    Black units will be no more - just the grey that is shared with the Edge series.


    It was a great meeting as he was blown away by my system stating it was the best he had experienced. It sounds like I'll get a lot more recommendations from Cambridge after this.
  • No more black units! Can I jump on a black CXC for the normal price still? I don't need it yet, but I figured my current CD player is bound to die at some point and the CXC seemed like the most logical successor.
    It's disappointing to see the price increases on units that aren't really getting updates, but business is business I guess. Glad I got the CXN when I did.

    Also that's an awesome compliment from a manufacturer Skip. Sounds like it was a productive meeting.
