Purity and musicality of sound
no home theater bypass
In my opinion, the purity and musicality of the sound of this amplifier is unrivaled. Crystal clear, with no hiss or distortion, even when the amp is turned on near full power. Has excellent input/output capabilities. Extremely wide sound field with excellent separation between instruments made listening exciting. I listen almost exclusively to digital music and hear no difference between usb and bluetooth with the CXA81. I compared the CXA81 to the Parasound NewClassic 200, and the CXA81 outperformed the NewClassic. The NewClassic was a bit more detailed, it was much less engaging and sounded just flat in comparison. With the CXA81, the music is much more emotive. The only drawback is the lack of bypass for home theater. Otherwise, this is an amazingly well equipped and incredibly good sounding integrated amplifier.
Pure, open sound, good detail, a very quick response from the phone
At the level of "vile blue diodes")
I read the reviews for a long time and chose between Rotel 1572, Marantz 6008, Arcam SA20 and Denon PMA800 .. since I am from the Primorsky Territory, it was not possible to listen to all of the above models, so I had to focus on people's reviews.
The purchase is very pleased, the sound is clean, open, detailed, the bass is dynamic and worked out, in some compositions I did not recognize it at all, I heard the instrument instead of a simple thump .. It sounds cool.
I have a ligament - Polk Audio Signature ES15 and now this very CXA 81.
I used to listen to Triangle Aio - Sony Str -KG800- Polk Audio Signature ES15.
But since there is a built -in DAC in the CXA, now I can listen without AIO and honestly admit, I am satisfied. The sound is better and better than the reaction to the phone - I pressed the pause, the pause turned on, without too much expectation, which was in the previous bunch.
Of the minuses - well, of course, you need to support a person with his ?vile blue lights?, it was very funny to read about his discontent and since the device is really good .. I can add ?rattling batteries in the remote control? (which are included in the kit - thanks to the manufacturer) and the ?viewing angle? of the device receiving from the remote control, not the largest, so that the remote control reacts, sometimes you need to be almost perpendicular to it ..
I also noticed a strange picture, initially the sound was controlled only from the remote control or using the regulator on the device, but over time, it began to be controlled from the phone.
I am very pleased with the purchase, for those who open the Hi-Fi world for themselves, apparently now I will have to puzzle the issue of improving the AC and finally buy sensible cables/wires)

Great appearance, functionality, melody!
A little archaic remote control, but a matter of taste.
After the transition from Denon PMA 800, I had a wow effect!
The sound became open, pure and hundreds of times more transparent. Music suddenly interested me again!
A stunning modern design, without displays and all the superfluous, the indication has 3 brightness modes - full, half and completely disconnected.
Blutuz - I could never imagine that bluetooth could sound better through AirPlay! I had a Yamaha Wxad 10 network player with the built -in AirPlay and how am I surprised that the sound of it is so lousy than through the boat of the amplifier.
Exit to the sub is super like!
Balance entrance - Super like!
Design is a super like!
