Cambridge Audio has entered the UHD Blu-ray player arena with the CXUHD. In addition to all the usual audio support, up to and including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the new player supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision encoded UHD discs, and has extensive multimedia file support, including HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K and Hi10P.

Two USB 3.0 ports allow users to back video, music and image files from USB sticks and hard drives. The deck is also compatible with DVD Audio and Super Audio CD discs.

Connections include two HDMI outputs, one main 2.0 port and a second 1.4 audio port for connecting older AV receivers. There’s also an HDMI 2.0 input, which can be used to connect an external streaming box, such as Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Apple TV.

The deck lacks a DAC, which the brand says significantly decreases interference, significantly reducing noise and improving both audio and picture quality. The deck is based on the MediaTek platform, while the video output has been tuned by Cambridge Audio’s team of engineers.

The CXUHD retails for £700.
