Cambridge CXA80 review


Impressive muscle, but the CXA80 doesn't quite woo us quite the way we wanted...

Excellent clarity and rich detail ; Powerful sound ; Weighty, muscular and solid presentation ; Sleek design and superb build

Could be more agile and subtle with dynamics ; Not as expressive as rivals

It’s not the resounding success we’d expected it to be, but the Cambridge CXA80 is still a powerful, muscular beast of an amplifier
