Standby Mode

This selects what type of standby mode your player will use.

Network Standby means your player will still be controllable by the StreamMagic app and other network services while in standby.

If ECO mode is chosen, your player will use even less power in standby but will need to be switched on either by the front panel or the remote control. It will not be controllable via the app or other network services while in standby.

Automatic Power Down

This sets how long your player will wait while inactive before switching to standby.

Display Brightness

This sets the brightness of your player’s display. If set to ‘Off’ the display will show for a few seconds after any change and then switch off.

Roon Ready DSD

This will allow you to choose how Roon provides DSD content.

Use DoP for digital output – If your device does support native DSD in DoP format.

Use PCM for digital output – If your device doesn’t support native DSD.

Control Bus

If your device is connected to a Cambridge Audio amplifier using a control bus connector, volume commands can be sent directly to the amplifier. For more information, please refer to the Getting Connected section of this manual under ‘Control Bus’ here.


With Pre-Amp mode enabled, the volume of the device's analogue outputs can be controlled using the app or rotary dial.

For more information see our FAQ.

Note: Pre-Amp mode and volume control can only be enabled when connected via the analogue outputs.

Volume Limit

This sets the maximum volume that other streaming services like AirPlay, Spotify, TIDAL Connect and Chromecast built-in can set. The front panel, remote control and StreamMagic app volume controls can override this setting.
