The CXR200 is your complete home cinema hub. It brings together all of our hi-fi expertise for a powerful, immersive home cinema experience like no other. We also designed it from the ground up to be the heart of your digital set-up, so it’s got the same award winning Cambridge Audio StreamMagic streaming module found in our CXN network music player. It’s an audiophile’s hi-fi, a movie buff’s AVR, and a music lover’s digital streamer - all in one box.




We created the CXRs with the same premise as any of our other hi-fi products - with amazing sound at the core of their design. Through class AB amplification the CXR200 delivers extremely low noise and distortion levels and is rated at 200 Watts in stereo mode or 120 Watts with all seven channels driven. The power supply is via a low flux audiophile-grade toroidal transformer with a substantially extruded heat sink; the result is that the CXR200 delivers smooth seamless sound with incredible precision. You no longer need two separate systems for your music and movies, the 200 will bring power and energy to anything you put through it.


Complementing the audio prowess, its visual performance is second to none. HDMI connections are 2.0 rated (apart from the MHL inputs which are 1.4), and support 4K and 3D standards, and the CXR200 will upscale all 1080p signals to 4K ultra high definition. With Deep Colour support too, the perfect picture is guaranteed with vivid colours and lifelike detail.


 We know that people store their music in various different places and in a countless number of formats, and we also know that people use lots of different streaming services so they can listen to any track in the world. To keep everyone happy we’ve incorporated our complete StreamMagic streaming platform which brings with it NAS drive and UPnP playback, Spotify Connect, thousands of Internet Radio stations, and the ability to play just about any file from basic MP3s to 24-bit/192kHz hi-res files, either wired, from USB hard drives, or via Wi-Fi, all with fantastic depth and quality.

The free Cambridge Connect App for iOS and Android devices brings the whole experience to life. Whether it’s flicking through album artwork, building playlists or setting presets, the app allows intuitive browsing and navigation of all your music. The App can also control power on/off, source selection and volume of the CXR200.


 Whatever format your entertainment takes, the CXR200 can connect with it beautifully. The eight HDMI input sockets cater for all your visual feeds and two of them support MHL, one on the front and on the back, making it simple to watch phone content on your big screen. Other front ports of the CXR include USB and MP3 aux-in, so if it’s on a portable device you can still enjoy it through the 200.

Further digital inputs include two co-axial digital sockets and four optical ports. Add a BT100 Bluetooth receiver and it will pair with any compatible device, allowing playback in superb quality thanks to aptX technology. Analogue options are well catered for too: four line level inputs, one recording output, and 7.1 multi-channel direct inputs. There’s even support for Direct Stream Digital (DSD), allowing you to play back Super Audio CDs from your universal player. It’s a long list but basically you can enjoy anything!


 The CXR200 has two HDMI outputs. These can be used to 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. The CXR200 can also run an independent Zone 2 where the 2nd HDMI output can be assigned to send a different source into a second room. Alternatively there are selectable Zone 2 speaker outputs or RCA pre-outs allowing you to listen to any audio source in Zone 2. Zone 2 can be controlled by the main remote control or the Cambridge Connect app.


 The CXR200 can be set up in a number of different ways. It features height channel processing so when using a 5.1 set-up, the unused 6th and 7th speaker channels can be used instead for overhead ‘height’ effects. 7.1 or 7.2 channel set ups are also available thanks to twin subwoofer outputs or you can use the 6th and 7th speaker channels to bi-amp the front left and right channels or send audio into a second zone 2 room.

"Connectivity is the name of the game with the CXR200, designed to handle compressed streaming media as easily as it does 4K HDMI signals. Producing up to 120W of power across seven channels, or two channels of stereo at 200W, it will prove an impressive heart of any home cinema system."

"Al scrollend door mijn muziekverzameling op mijn NAS hoor je de stabiliteit in de weergave. Het laag is solide en gedefinieerd en staat mooi in balans met het midden en hoog. Het geluidsbeeld is rustig en open. De weergave is zacht van karakter en heeft tegelijkertijd toch nog steeds de juiste definitie om diepe details boven water te halen. Uren lang luisteren, levert geen luistermoeheid op. Je bent juist eerder geneigd om nog eens een ander nummer op te zetten."

"All scrolling through my music collection on my NAS hear stability in the display. The bass is solid and defined and is nicely balanced with medium and high. The sound is quiet and open. The display is soft in nature and at the same time yet still the correct definition to get deep details surfaced. hours listen long, provides no listening fatigue in. You're just more likely to once again put on another song. "
