Question Cambridge Audio CXA80 Usb issuws

Hi all,

I'm having issues with my CXA80. I recently decided to connect it the dac via the usb input, but none of my devices are recognising the connection. I've tried connecting 2 laptops and an Nvidia sheild tv usb and none of the devices are recognising the audio out to usb.

One thing I have noticed is that I can't select the usb input on the amp itself when I press the button allocated button its coloured blue for bluetooth and when I press it the second time to engage usb there is no change. I am able to select usb on the remote control. I'm not sure if this could be part of the issue or not. All other inputs are working correctly.

I've tried a factory reset and there is no joy. Has anyone else had a similar issue?

I've contacted cambridge but still waiting on a reply.
