Expert review by : What Hi-Fi? (whathifi.com)

Cambridge Audio CXA81 review

 

What Hi-Fi? Awards 2021 winner. Sets a new baseline for integrated amps at this price

Bold, powerful, detailed presentation ; Expert timing and dynamics ; Broad features and connections

Nothing at this price

Fantastic all round.

 

This is a really good amp and provides a noticeable upgrade to my excellent Roksan Kandy K2 Amp, using Monitor Audio RS6 speakers. Bluetooth connectivity is fast and simple to use too, and while Spotify in its current form does not play as well as a...
