We shouldn’t have favorites, but CXN V2 is something else – audio specialists and our listeners agree. CXN V2 will instantly transform a classic hi-fi stack into a system with a bright future. And because it’s a network device, CXN V2 can be upgraded remotely, via our StreamMagic platform, to receive new features and services.
Ready for the Revolution?
The convenience of streamed music was once let down by its quality. That’s no longer the case thanks to better codecs, broadband speeds, and products like CXN V2. It’s designed to provide the effortless accessibility of the format, but with the uncompromised sonic excellence that over 50 years of hi-fi experience lets us share with you.
Whatever you Want
CXN V2 has free and subscription hi-res streaming services, like internet radio, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect and Qobuz. With Apple Airplay2 and Chromecast built-in, you can access Apple Music, Amazon Music, BBC Sounds and more. CXN V2 is also Roon Ready, consolidating the experience of browsing your digital music files – no matter the source.
The Whole Story
Getting hold of the music you want easily is one thing. Being moved by its fidelity is another. That’s why CXN V2 packs dual Wolfson WM8740 series DACs. By upscaling any digital music to an information-packed 24-bit/384kHz using our unique ATF2 technology, music is delivered with a warmth, depth and nuance not often associated with digital audio.
At the heart of CXN V2 lies our bespoke streaming platform and app, which we’ve been perfecting for over 10 years. It’s responsible for the network player’s slick, seamless and stable listening experience from any digital source. Built around StreamMagic module Gen3, CXN V2 can have its firmware upgraded over-the-air to receive updates and access to new services.
Control. Pure and Simple
Interacting with CXN V2 couldn’t be easier. Our StreamMagic app allows intuitive control of all connected sources – to curate playlists, set presets or browse albums conveniently from your sofa. There’s a remote control and an intuitive selector wheel on the unit’s fascia too. CXN V2’s colour display confirms commands and shows the artwork of the album you’re enjoying.
Designed for Life
CXN V2 is a complete streaming solution. Its mix of innovation, stability and audio excellence means it will play a key role in your musical enjoyment for years to come. With elegant, minimalistic lines, crafted from aluminum and steel, CXN V2 will endure both physically and aesthetically.
