Cambridge Audio CXR120 review


Dolby Atmos and the imminent DTS:X are shaking up the AV receiver market with their object-based antics, yet Cambridge Audio is having none of it. With its latest pair of audiophile receivers, the CXR120 and CXR200 – its first new models since 2013's...

Keeps composure at high volumes; lots of detail; big, weighty soundstage; musical two-channel performance; gorgeous design and solid build

Lacks Dolby Atmos and DTS:X; can’t access network features onscreen; polite at lower volumes; app offers limited audio controls; Bluetooth is optional extra

Cambridge Audio is asking you to trust in the CXR120’s performance when you hand over your credit card. It rewards that trust with muscular, agile and beautifully detailed sound, not to mention stunning build quality. Brand loyalists with no interest...

Cambridge Audio CXR120 A/V Receiver Review


This receiver makes idiosyncratic audiophile choices—omitting Atmos, Bluetooth, and other features—but the revamped look and feel are great, and the sound is reliably musical. See the amp's specs! $2400 for this??? crappy indeed. Inadequate feature...

Nuanced, open, uncolored sonics; Stream Magic module

Bluetooth requires adapter; A $2,400 AVR with no Dolby Atmos or DTS:X; Auto setup imposes no room correction
