Cambridge Audio today announces the latest addition to its AX range of hi-fi separates, the AXR100D DAB/FM stereo receiver. Designed and engineered in the UK, the AX series has something to offer every music lover, hitting the perfect balance between performance and affordability.
Consisting of two CD players, two integrated amplifiers and three 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.
AXR100D DAB/FM stereo receiver – £499
Sitting at the very top of the AX range is the new AXR100D DAB/FM stereo receiver. With a power output of 100W and the ability to drive two stereo speaker zones, this is a powerful and flexible choice for the demanding listener.
The AXR100D features a wide range of connectivity: three analogue RCA inputs, a MM phono stage input, a 3.5mm auxiliary input and 6.3mm headphone output. It also has three digital inputs – two optical and one coaxial – as well as a DAB/FM tuner with 40 presets for each. Bluetooth 5 is on board for wireless streaming, and you can fine tune the sound thanks to bass and treble controls.
The AXR100D DAB/FM stereo receiver will be available from June 2020.
