    Changing CXN v2 to Marantz ND8006

    I currently have a CXNv2 (using Roon) plugged into my AV amp which is a Yamaha RX-A3700. I find the sound quite spacious and full bodied but can't help feeling it's not as refined as I'd like. There is a coarseness to it. I'm pretty sure it's the A3700 being an AV amp. I'm in the market for a...

    CXN v2 as a Pre-amp

    Hi Just wondering if anybody is currently using the CXN v2 as a pre-amp and what your experiences are of it. I have one going into my Roksan K3 but purely as a streamer currently. It would be good to control volume etc from the app and a single remote. My Roksan K3 has a pre-amp bypass so i am...

    Using a remote with Cambridge Audio CXN and CXA60

    I have a CXN v2 and a CXA60 amp. The same remote works both. However, the power button on the remote sometimes works with both, or one or other, or none. It's a small thing but can be frustrating. Has anyone experienced this and know of a solution?

    Cambridge CXN V2 problem streaming Amazon Music to Builtin Chromecast

    I thought that I should be able to stream Amazon Music HD to the builtin Chromecast on my CXN V2. Is this correct? I can’t get it to work. Chromecast is setup on my CXN, but when I click on the Cast button when playing a song in Amazon Music, it can’t find my CXN. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cambridge Audio CXN v2 bitrate?

    I stream an Amazon HD track from my phone (24bit 96khz) via Chromecast on the CXNv2. The display on the CXNv2 displays the track, but only ever 44.1khz 16bit. The CXNv2 spec said it can do much higher rates than 16bit. What explains this? Thanks
