Love my upgrade

Crutchfield customer from Evergreen, CO on 5/20/2020

I usually choose NAD but went for this and an loving it. Slightly better specs than the NAD of comparable cost. I have it powering B&W 685s and 608 sub. I love the simplicity of inputs 1-4 analogue, 2 optical, and Bluetooth. I'm running optical in from my smart tv. I bi-wired the speakers using the A & B speaker terminals. The DAC is amazing, I'm hearing subtle tracks I've never heard in old favorite tunes. Plenty of power for my smaller living room.

Pros: Amazing sound

Cons: None yet

Great value

great value - clean accurate sound - paired with Wharfedale Diamond 225 speakers - would have to spend 2-3x this for a comparable integrated amp with dac built in

Pros: Solid integrated amp

Cons: Better printed instructions

Wow! I had always had Sony components and liked them. My latest was a 7.1 home theater receiver, as I wanted the immersive sound of BlueRay videos and the ability to run B speakers to my porch. We started to realize that we didn't care as much about swooshing jets flying by and crashes that make you jump out your seat. Spectacular stereo sound was what we craved. With that, I researched here and other sites to see what fit our needs. I arrived at the Cambridge CXA-61; A & B speaker outputs, enough power. I have Cambridge S-30 speakers and figured they may be a good fit. The difference in quality vs the Sony was amazing! The cabinet, construction, and sound are all top-notch! My wife sat back and listened after I installed it, and said she was hearing nuances of music she had never picked up before. You can actually turn up the volume a bit more and still not fatiguing at all. Overall, I am very pleased and glad to simplify down from 5.1 surround to 2 exceptional channels!

Pros: Quality build, excellent sound, easy to install and set up

Cons: None so far

Great amplifier, not so great remote

Crutchfield customer from Saint Augustine, FL on 2/28/2020

The sound is great just as all the reviews I read said it would be. It's like hearing your music library for the first time. The clarity of each instrument is exceptional. The reasons I didn't give a five star review are twofold. One, I wish the amp had a digital volume level readout. Two, my biggest problem is with the remote. Sometimes turning it on is an issue. I often have to get within two feet of the amp to make it turn on or off. The biggest problem of all is the volume control on the remote. It isn't very sensitive (unlike the Pioneer Elite that the CA is replacing). I often listen at low volume so as not to disturb others in the house. One click of the up/down buttons produces too much of a volume increase/decrease. Most of the time I just go over to the amp and use the volume knob which has a nice sensitivity to it. If only the remote was like that. And by the way, what market research study came up with the volume buttons arrows, pointing left for volume up and right for volume down? Not very intuitive. How about arrow up for volume up and arrow down for volume down.

Pros: Exceptional sound

Cons: remote needs some work

I'm using this connected to a PC via USB cable. This replaces my Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 sound card (DAC) and Yamaha A-S301 integrated amp. The CXA-61 provides a much improved sound - better clarity and separation of instruments! Couldn't be happier with Cambridge Audio!

Pros: Good DAC for use with PC via USB connection

Cons: None so far
