Overview and description of the AV-receiver Cambridge Audio CXR 120

The seven-channel AV-receiver Cambridge Audio CXR 120 is based on the same ideology as the audio components of this series - with exceptional attention to all elements of the design, responsible for sound quality. The device is made in a metal case of considerable height, which allowed the free placement of all its circuits and ensure a good heat dissipation. The AV receiver has an antiresonant chassis, and its front panel is made of aluminum sheet of considerable thickness. On it there is a large display in which several small control buttons are integrated, as well as a volume control and connectors. The latter are represented by the headphone output, mini-jack inputs for portable players (the microphone of the system for automatic calibration of the surround sound is connected to the same socket) and HDMI with MHL support. There is also a USB-input, to which you can connect drives with music files.
The power supply of the AV-receiver Cambridge Audio CXR 120 is equipped with a massive toroidal transformer, and the filter capacitors have a significant total power. The device is equipped with HD surround decoders and standard formats has a mode of direct signal feeding bypassing the auxiliary circuits. In addition to the connectors on the front panel, the CXR 120 is equipped with seven HDMI inputs and two outputs (one of which supports signal transfer in the return audio channel mode). HDMI-switching provides transmission of 3D and 4K signals. Also on the rear panel of the CXR 120 are three line inputs, two coaxial and two optical, and 7.1-channel inputs. You can connect two subwoofers to the receiver, it has trigger and IR outputs, RS232 interface. Two optional USB connectors allow you to connect an optional BT100 Bluetooth module and the supplied Wi-Fi antenna for a wireless network connection.
Cambridge Audio CXR 120 has a combined built-in network player unit, similar to that used in network players Cambridge Audio. On the network (as well as from USB-media), the unit plays lossless-files ALAC, WAV, FLAC with parameters up to 24 bits/192 kHz, and its digital-to-analog converter is built on the Cirrus Logic CS42528 chip. It is also possible to receive Internet radio and there is support for the Spotify service.
