CXUHD

4K UHD Universal Blu-Ray Player

Step into a world of crisp visuals and stunning detail all in glorious 4K resolution, with Cambridge Audio’s first ever UHD Player. Designed without DACs for noise reduction and improved audio and picture quality, the CXUHD supports the latest in 4K technologies including UHD discs, HDR and Dolby Vision; giving you a reference quality player capable of handling almost any video or audio file format you can throw at it.

UHD, 4K, HDR & DOLBY VISION

The CXUHD supports the playback of 4K UHD Blu-Ray discs, playing video in resolutions up to 3840 x 2160, delivering four times as many pixels as regular HD Blu-Ray. Other 4K media files are also supported for playback, utilising HEVC H.265, H.264, VP9 4K and Hi10P video decoding for increased compatibility with user generated content. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is also supported with a HDR TV, expanding the range of contrast and brightness for advanced and expanded colours. It has been professionally calibrated to optimise the dynamic range between blacks and whites along with delivering natural colours and filmic fluidity. For compatibility there’s also a conversion provided for older SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) displays

Dolby Vision transforms your home cinema experience by delivering striking highlights, 68 billion colours, and intense darks never seen on standard television screens. Using clever metadata, Dolby Vision enhances your TVs performance frame by frame.

MEDIA PLAYBACK AND NETWORK ACCESS

With two USB 3.0 ports for media playback, the CXUHD is capable of playing a range of video, music and image files from USB sticks and hard drives including HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K and Hi10P video. You can also use the Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet to connect the unit to your home network, giving you easy access to media files stored on computers, laptops, NAS Drives and home servers. Its universal compatibility also allows multiple disc formats to be played back including Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and audio CD.

AUDIO FORMAT PASS-THROUGH

With internal pass-through of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and bitstream pass-through for object-based immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the CXUHD supports amazing sound whether it’s for the latest blockbuster movie soundtrack or your favourite albums.

HIGH QUALITY BUILD

Using the latest technologies and our years of experience in quality home audio and cinema, our UHD player offers reference quality video playback. A customized quad-core video decoder integrates our advanced video decoding, processing and optimization expertise. The high-precision, balanced laser optical disc loader ensures smooth and reliable playback whichever disc you’re playing. Its mechanism provides super-fast loading with error detection and correction. The unit acts as a transport as we removed the internal DAC to decrease interference to the signal, improving quality by reducing video noise. The unit also seamlessly integrates into current CX and home cinema setups with its sleek finish and brushed aluminium front panel

DUAL HDMI OUTPUT

Two separate HDMI outputs are housed at the back of the CXUHD; a HDMI 2.0 port for connecting the latest 4K UHD TVs, projectors and AV receivers and a HDMI 1.4 audio port for connecting older AV receivers.

HDMI 2.0 INPUT

An HDMI 2.0 input supporting UHD resolution is included for users to connect external streaming devices such as Chromecast, Amazon Firesticks and Apple TV. This flexibility lets you choose from a wide range of streaming devices and services, all while taking advantage of the CXUHD's audio and video processing capabilities.

EASY INTEGRATION

Integration-friendly features make the CXUHD a great choice for any home theatre system. Coaxial and optical digital audio outputs provide backward compatibility with any older audio components you might have in your system.
