Cambridge Audio CX Series Back In Black

Cambridge Audio CX Series Black Edition steps out of the shadows in a slinky limited edition outfit.

 Cambridge Audio has taken the wraps off its limited Black Edition of its CX Series 2, comprising the CXA61, CXA81, CXC and Applause Award-winning CXN components.

The music-loving British hi-fi firm touts the CX Series Black Edition as “a marriage of understated class and head-turning brilliance”. However, we cannot deny that the matte black finished aluminium fascia and shimmering black gloss spot 'CX BLACK EDITION' lettering does look rather good. Moreover, the dual texture effect means they even stand out from more common black separates.

The CX Series Black Edition is designed for those refreshing their hi-fi stack to make a discreet yet polished statement. The CX Series Black Edition could also be an option for those seeking to upgrade their system with a colour-matching Cambridge Audio component for the first time.

Only 1,000 units of each component will be available worldwide; each purchase is presented with a certificate of authenticity from Cambridge Audio.

Cambridge Audio CEO, Stuart George, told StereoNET:

Since we stopped making black hi-fi products, people have been asking us to bring them back. We decided to do this limited run in response to that demand – and I have to say, they look pretty damn cool. People love CX, and this finish takes it to the next level.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
