How can I connect digital sources directly to the CXA60 or CXA80 amplifiers?

The CXA60 was designed to work with digital sources from the outset so has a 24-bit Wolfson WM8740 DAC (a very premium digital to analogue converter) built in. This chip is as the heart of our award-winning DacMagic range. So whether it’s music from your TV or your network streaming device, it all gets passed through the Wolfson DAC.

Connecting the CXA60 to the digital out of the CXC dedicated CD transport also creates a perfect partnership. The result is that any digital music soars to new heights, reveals new depths and can be enjoyed like never before.

Digital connections are in the form of S/PDIF co-axial and TOSLINK digital inputs.

Coaxial – Use a high quality 75 ohm Coaxial Digital interconnect cable (not one designed for normal audio use). This input is suitable for 16-24 bit content up to 192kHz.

TOSLINK Optical – Use a high quality TOSLINK fibre optic interconnect cable designed specifically for audio use. This input is suitable for 16-24 bit content up to 96kHz (TOSLINK is not recommended at 192kHz sampling rates).
