Over the past few days, I have had the pleasure of the auditioning the Cambridge Audio AXN10 Network Player. This unit sounded extremely compelling, was remarkably easy to set up and use. The enjoyment was enhanced by the intuitive and rock solid StreamMagic app.
StreamMagic Gen 4 Module – swift playback & high quality sound.
ESS SABRE ES9033Q DAC – for the latest streaming capabilities.
High-quality Internet Radio – thanks to MPEG-DASH support
Spotify Connect, TIDAL & Qobuz built in – for the best possible sound.
Roon Ready – easy browsing of your digital music.
Connectivity Choice – with USB playback, RCA/phono, coax & optical or wirelessly with Chromecast built-in, AirPlay 2 & Bluetooth.
MSRP – $799.99.
All of this excellence* is available in a half width chassis. This is the MXN10 and retails for $599.99.
* I have been assured that the performance of both units is identical.

“Integre4 produces a mighty 2 x 65 Watts using two KT-150 tubes per channel. The onboard regulated high-voltage power supply guarantees an absolutely noise-free signal, whilst eleven low ESR and high capacity capacitors provide instant power on demand and ultra linear output transformers ensure the utmost dynamic, open and natural sound, that extends across the complete frequency range.”
“Beneath the chassis, Integre4 hides a complex and sophisticated operating system that provides constant monitoring of all tubes and high-power electronic components, protecting them from any kind of harmful damage. Bias can be adjusted manually via the built-in and high-quality current metering system and instant selectable anode current allows the use of any octal type tube – a tube rollers dream.
But the feature set doesn’t end here. Integre4’s dedicated headphone circuit fully exploits the amplifier’s power output stage in absence of any OPamps. Yes, Integre4 can act as a true high-performance headphone amplifier, too.”
MSRP – $5870.00
