Today Cambridge Audio introduces the AX series, a brand new range of hi-fi separates. Designed and engineered in the UK, AX has something to offer every music lover, hitting the perfect balance between performance and affordability.
Consisting of two CD players, two integrated amplifiers and two stereo receivers, the AX range takes design and innovation cues from Cambridge Audio’s CX and Edge hi-fi ranges. Like those award-winning products, it uses the company’s 50-plus years of audio engineering expertise to deliver what Cambridge Audio has dubbed its “Great British Sound”, a pure, unfiltered audio experience reflecting the artist’s intentions – nothing added, nothing taken away.
The AXC and AXA ranges will be available from Cambridge Audio and Amazon from mid June 2019. The AXR range will be available from July 2019.
AXC25 CD player – £229
AXC35 CD player – £299
With a single analogue RCA output, remote control and a sleek Lunar Grey and black finish, the AXC25 makes the perfect affordable CD player for anyone seeking a value-based setup.
The step-up AXC35 adds the option of a coaxial digital audio output.
Both models are versatile, gapless playback CD players with the added ability to play home recorded CD-R, CD-RW and CD-ROM discs with MP3 and WMA files on them.
AXA25 integrated amplifier – £229
AXA35 integrated amplifier – £299
Representing superb value for money, the AXA25 integrated stereo amplifier boasts a power output of 25W, four analogue RCA inputs, a single RCA output for recording purposes and a USB port with 5V 500mA of power for adding a Bluetooth receiver, plus a 3.5mm auxiliary stereo input on the front panel.
Moving up the range, the AXA35 offers additional connectivity, features and a greater power output of 35W. It’s supplied with a remote control and white display screen, a phono stage input and a 6.3mm headphone output.
Both amplifiers come in the AX range’s Lunar Gray and black colour scheme.
AXR85 stereo receiver – £349
AXR100 stereo receiver – £449
With both power and flexibility aplenty, the AXR85 stereo receiver is an ideal choice for the more demanding listener. The 85W receiver is able to drive two stereo speaker zones, and has a wide range of connectivity: three analogue RCA inputs, a phono stage input, rec and subwoofer outputs and a 3.5mm auxiliary input and 6.3mm headphone output up front. It comes with an FM/AM tuner and built-in Bluetooth receiver for wireless streaming.
Sitting at the very top of the AX range is the AXR100 stereo receiver, which takes the AXR85’s template and adds digital inputs (two optical and one coaxial) while increasing the power output to 100W.
