Are the rca/xlr outputs bypassed?  It looks like there is an additional pair installed to the right on the pic.

Also, does this have variable out - volume control or do you have to use the modded unit with a preamp?

Looking good Dan!

The stock RCA outs are bypassed and we install upgraded RCA outs. The XLR outs are fully functional and fully balanced.

RCA and XLR outs are wired in parallel, with RCA ground common to XLR pin 3 (-).

The volume control is not disabled, so volume is fully variable.

It is a fantastic and flexible unit! It is a modern version of the Transporter that we used to mod, with HUGE leaps in technology and a mod design that also reflects what we have learned in the years since the Transporter mod!

Thanks,

Dan

The recent issue of The Absolute Sound has a great review of the Cambridge CXN along with a 80W integrated. Despite its low price, the CXN is PHENOMENALLY flexible as a digital solution! It is both streamer and DAC, with Roon connectivity too! With our mods, this becomes a one-box Class A digital solution for about $2500!

I have posted a review of the prototype modified CXN V2 received from Dan.  Here is a page link for anyone who might be interested: https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=173490.new#new.

The more I look at this mod, the more interest I have. I'm not in a financial position to do this at the moment (covid is hitting the bank too), but hopefully this is something I can move on in 2021. The design just seems correct to me, and with Tidal connect coming to the CXN earlier than most, this now seems functionally more appealing than any separates for my uses. I already enjoy my CXN, but this might keep me from wanting separate streamer and dac upgrades for the foreseeable future so I can focus on other things. This upgrade has completely derailed my digital upgrade plans, and I'm ok with it!

Fingers crossed we can get the finances turned around in the next few months so I can get on the wait list. Time will tell, but I look forward to more reviews as they come out. Great work!

This is why I decided to modify it. It IS the right unit! Its functionality and good stock sound make sense. We can really make it sound great!

Thanks Dan, looking forward to hearing more reviews from others as these make it out into the wild. Obviously those might be a little slow with reduced production and just getting this one off the ground, but until I can pull the trigger I'd love to live vicariously through others who are lucky enough to get it first  :D

Dan:

Have you compared the Cambridge to your modded Oppo UDP-205?  I would think the Oppo would sound better but wondering how close they are.

Thanks!
