Cambridge Audio CXN Network Player

The Cambridge Audio UPnP endowed CXN Network Player ($1,999 pictured up top) includes 24-bit/192kHz-capable Wolfson WM8740 DACs, an asynchronous USB input, a front mounted USB input for your USB sticks, aptX Bluetooth for family-and-friend-friendly playback, Apple's AirPlay, and streaming via Spotify Connect. Cambridge says the CNX "upsamples your favourite songs to 24-bit/384kHz, delivering pure, audio heaven." Pure audio heaven for $1,999 has to be a deal only the devil can make ;-).

Michael, the CXN actually lists $1,199 in the States. Common street price is $1,099. While the dual Wolfson DAC arrangement remains intact, the CXN appears on paper to be a significant upgrade from the now defunct StreamMagic line. Word is Tidal may be forthcoming in a future firmware release, which has the CXN on my radar. Would love to see your review on this one!
