Product Description

The first Cambridge AV receiver to combine network streaming with audiophile sound quality, the CXR120 is an unbeatable AVR!


Why choose between outstanding sound quality and the excitement of home theatre? Cambridge Audio's CXR120 delivers both in one sleek, no-nonsense package. The CXR120 serves up the latest audio and video features your high-def home theatre needs, along with the clean, clear sound Cambridge Audio is known for. This precision-built receiver includes potent, audiophile-quality amplification for seven speakers plus decoding for the superior high-resolution surround sound formats available with today's HD video sources.

Connectivity: HDMI inputs let you connect up to seven high-def components for easy switching. The six rear-panel HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2, which means they're ready for the highest-quality 4K video sources, like Ultra HD Blu-ray. The CXR120's dual HDMI outputs let you run two displays at the same time; ideal if you have a screen in a second room, or want to use a projector for movies, but a TV screen for day-to-day use.

4K Upscaling: Taking video processing to the next level, the CXR120 can now upscale to 4K resolution. With 4K the horizontal pixel count of 1080p TV increases from 1920 to 3840. With 4K screens now firmly established, by equipping this receiver with 4K upscaling, Cambridge have engineered in comprehensive levels of future proofing. In the meantime you can also upscale signals to 1080p for the best image quality with Full HD TVs and projectors. The HDMI sockets also allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

Powerful Processing: Using Cirrus Logic's powerful, 3-core, 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor), Cambridge has enabled full support for Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution and Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats. DTS speaker re-mapping allows the playback of DTS-HD High Resolution or Master Audio formats with encoded height information on standard 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 speaker setups.

DSD via HDMI: Designed for use with SACDs (Super Audio Compact Disc), DSD (Direct-Stream Digital) is a high resolution audio format that's available on many Blu-ray and universal DVD players. It offers sound quality that matches the best high resolution formats and is available from a wide range of SACD discs.

Optional Bluetooth: In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi and USB, the CXN is also compatible with Bluetooth via an optionally available dongle. Connect up the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet or other device with Bluetooth built-in.

Audio Performance: The CXR120 opens up many possibilities for enjoying quality sound. The back surround channels are re-assignable for use with biamp-capable front speakers. By doubling the power to a pair of biampable speakers, you'll get stronger performance for surround sound, and especially for 2-channel music. And if you have a high-end Blu-ray player with multichannel analogue output, like Cambridge Audio's own CXU, you can use the receiver's matching 7.1-channel preamp input to take advantage of the player's internal audio processing.

The Cambridge CXR120 gives you access to over 20,000 Internet radio stations from around the world; all sorted by location, language, and genre. Spotify® Connect is built in, too, so if you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can play all your music and playlists and control the CXR120 with the Spotify Connect app on your Apple iOS or Android device. You can even stream music directly from your Bluetooth-enabled portable devices by adding Cambridge's optional BT100 adapter.

Best Of British: Cambridge Audio's London-based engineering team designed the CXR120 according to their usual high-end standards. The seven discrete amplifiers are all powered off a beefy toroidal transformer to maintain rock-steady power throughout the fluctuating demands of any music or soundtrack. Sound equipment is particularly susceptible to vibration, which is why Cambridge uses a low-resonance, acoustically damped metal chassis to eliminate as much vibration as possible. That ensures you'll hear the best possible sound quality from every audio source.
