Step into a world of crisp visuals and stunning detail, in glorious 4K resolution, with Cambridge Audio’s first ever 4K UHD Player. Utilising the latest technologies and Cambridge Audio’s engineering expertise, the CXUHD will play virtually any format you have.

 

NO DACS: IMPROVED AUDIO AND VIDEO QUALITY

Many amplifiers and AV Receivers now feature their own DACs. Therefore, uniquely for a UHD player, Cambridge Audio have designed out all internal DACs and their associated digital circuitry. This decreases interference to the signal, significantly reducing noise and improving both audio and picture quality.

 

PROFESSIONALLY CALIBRATED

Cambridge Audio’s team of engineers have professionally calibrated the video settings on the CXUHD.  Whatever you’re watching, you’ll find the dynamic range has been optimised, bringing natural colours and a film like fluidity that you have never seen before.

 

4K UHD, HDR & DOLBY VISION

The CXUHD supports the playback of 4K UHD Blu-ray discs, playing video in resolutions up to 3840 x 2160, delivering four times as many pixels as regular Blu-ray discs. Other 4K media files are also supported for playback, including HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K and Hi10P video decoding for increased compatibility with user generated content.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is also supported, expanding the range of contrast and brightness for advanced and expanded colours.

Dolby Vision transforms your home cinema experience by delivering striking highlights, 68 billion colours, and intense darks never seen on standard television screens. Using clever metadata, Dolby Vision enhances your TVs performance frame by frame.

 

AUDIO FORMAT PASS-THROUGH

With internal pass-through of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and bitstream pass-through for object-based immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the CXUHD supports amazing sound whether it’s for the latest blockbuster movie soundtrack or your favourite albums.

 

MEDIA PLAYBACK & NETWORK ACCESS

With two USB 3.0 ports for media playback, the CXUHD is capable of playing a range of video, music and image files from USB sticks and hard drives. You can also use the built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet to connect the unit to your home network, giving you easy access to media files stored on computers, laptops, NAS Drives and home servers. Its universal compatibility also allows multiple disc formats to be played back including Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, DVD Video, DVD Audio, SACD, and audio CD.

 

DUAL HDMI OUTPUT

Two separate HDMI outputs are housed at the back of the CXUHD; a HDMI 2.0 port for connecting the latest 4K UHD TVs, projectors and AV receivers and a HDMI 1.4 audio port for connecting older AV receivers.

 

HDMI 2.0 INPUT

An HDMI 2.0 input supporting UHD resolution is included for users to connect external streaming devices such as Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Apple TV. This flexibility lets you choose from a wide range of streaming devices and services, all while taking advantage of the CXUHD's audio and video processing capabilities.

 

HIGH-QUALITY BUILD

Using the latest technologies and our years of experience in quality home audio and cinema, our UHD player offers reference quality video playback. A customised quad-core video decoder integrates our advanced video decoding, processing and optimisation expertise. The high-precision, balanced laser optical disc loader ensures smooth and reliable playback whichever disc you’re playing. Its mechanism provides super-fast loading with error detection and correction. The unit also seamlessly integrates into current CX and home cinema setups with its sleek finish and brushed aluminium front panel.
