80W INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER
Power, precision and poise. Building on the award winning foundation of the CXA60, the CXA80 adds an extra 20watts of power giving 80watts of pure precision which creates a strikingly vivid soundstage. The addition of balanced inputs and USB connectivity for your computer based music library offers the solution for every source.
HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE REST
Rated at 80 Watts per channel the CXA80 has power in reserve for even the most demanding speakers. But it’s the way in which this power is delivered that put’s the CXA80 completely out of reach from its competitors. The entire internal layout is designed to minimize left and right interference (crosstalk) and provide astonishing stereo separation so you can virtually place each instrument in your room. It has symmetrical and separate transformer taps for the left and right channels, twin rectifiers and separate PSUs. When combined together these ‘dual mono’ features deliver incredible presence and depth to your music and a wide, enveloping soundstage that’s normally only available in amplifiers costing many times more.
Our engineers spent months to create the unique separated circuit board because they knew it would eventually provide the sound they wanted. As for power they were similarly insistent on sticking to what they knew would deliver. They used a class AB amplifier to minimise crossover distortion so music sounds purer and more controlled. An audiophile-grade oversize toroidal transformer provides huge power reserves, a consistent audio signal (no clipping) and a sensational bass performance. Finally, an ALPs film type volume pot was recruited for its accurate volume control and superb low level channel balance so the volume is always perfect across both left and right channels at whatever volume you’re enjoying.
