Overview and description of the AV-receiver Cambridge Audio CXR 200

The seven-channel AV-receiver Cambridge Audio CXR 200 is the senior model in this line of the company. It has enhanced functionality, as well as a higher output power compared to the CXR 120. The appearance of the AV receiver remained the same - in the middle of its front panel there is a display framed by control buttons, and the large handle on the right is used to adjust the volume .
With all seven gain channels, the Cambridge Audio CXR 200 develops a 120 watts nominal power rating at each (with a load resistance of 8 ohms). This allows the AV receiver to cope with rather complex acoustic systems in terms of impedance characteristics, and sound high-quality rooms. A high-power toroidal transformer is installed in the power unit of the device, and the output stages of the amplifiers are mounted on efficient heat sinks.
Cambridge Audio CXR 200 is equipped with decoders for all common surround formats with a convenient auto-calibration system. The receiver has eight HDMI inputs (six standard 2.0 and two 1.4 MHL), a USB connector for connecting portable drives with audio files. Networking The CXR 200 provides the same module that is used in Cambridge Audio network players. The receiver can be connected to the computer network either by cable (Ethernet) or by Wi-Fi - on its back panel there is a USB jack for installing a complete module with an antenna. Another USB-connector is designed to connect an optional Bluetooth-module BT100. Amplifiers of two additional surround channels can also be used to turn on the front stereo acoustics in the bi-amping scheme, or to sound the additional zone.
The digital-to-analog converter in the Cambridge Audio CXR 200 is based on the Cirrus Logic chip with 24 bit/192 kHz parameters, and the device can play lossless files (over the network or USB-drives) with parameters up to 24 bit/192 kHz. Among the additional functions of this model is the presence of an output from the preamplifier of the main stereo channels, as well as the possibility of sounding the second zone (including the transfer to it of the signal from the second HDMI output, with an independent source selection). The device is equipped with inputs and outputs of IR control and trigger sensors, as well as an RS232 connector, which allows to integrate it into the control systems of the "smart house".
