Cambridge Audio Turns Up the Volume with the MXN10 and AXN10 Network Players

Once updated via the StreamMagic app, the AXN10 and MXN10 now have pre-amp functionality, allowing you to control volume from within that app.

Cambridge Audio’s AXN10 and compact MXN10 network players have been a huge hit since their February launch. And now the British brand is making its two newest streamers even better, responding to customer feedback by adding app volume control via a free firmware update.

One of the biggest obstacles to mainstream adoption of hi-res audio and high-end network players has been the price of admission. Most consumers view their smart phone as the only network player they will ever need; and that is especially true for those who prefer to use Bluetooth loudspeakers and want to minimize any additional components or cables.

For the rest of us who want access to Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Roon, Chromecast, TIDAL, Qobuz, and our home networks — a smart phone doesn’t really work as well unless your wireless speakers support all of those platforms and lossless playback.

Both players offer incredible performance for the money, benefiting from Cambridge Audio’s significant ongoing investment in streaming technology R&D, which has generated multiple award-winning products including the CXN V2 network player and Evo all-in-one systems.

Once updated via the StreamMagic app, the AXN10 and MXN10 will have pre-amp functionality, allowing you to control volume from within that app. You can still adjust volume from within your streaming service’s app, or via the physical controls on your amp/wireless speaker, if preferred. 

Other updates in the new software release add more functionality to the StreamMagic app, including two new browsing functions: ‘Go to Album’ and ‘Go to Artist’.

The “Now Playing” screen also offers more options for favoriting and adding tracks to playlists. 

The firmware update – available from today – is part of Cambridge Audio’s commitment to continual product improvement wherever technically possible. 

The AXN10 ($599) and MXN10 ($499) are available now.
