No bells and whistles, just great sound
Inside the AXA25 you’ll find quality components and short signal paths for the best sound quality in its class. Careful circuit design reduces the signal path, giving higher purity sound and less distortion. Other quality engineering components include a high-spec heat sink that is die-cast rather than pressed steel and a damped power supply – reducing the chance of annoying transformer hum and buzz.
All the features you need
Although Cambridge Audio hasn’t wasted money on gimmicks, the AXA25 still has all the basic features you need. Balance, Bass and Treble controls let you tailor the sound to your preference, without overly distorting it as EQ presets can do. There are also a wide range of inputs.
Plenty of inputs – including one at the front
Four RCA phono inputs are ideal for a CD player, streamer, games console and turntable (with built-in pre-amp). There’s also a 3.5mm AUX input at the front that’s handy for temporary connections – such as an MP3 player or smartphone. The audio output lets you take a signal out to an external processor or recorder.
Power your music player or Bluetooth receiver
Next to the audio inputs you’ll also find a handy USB power socket. This is perfect for powering Bluetooth receivers or smart audio streaming devices, such as the Google Chromecast Audio, without having to find another spare mains socket.
Sleek new style
The entire Cambridge AX Series has a fresh new look that catches the eye. The Lunar Grey front panel contrasts with the black top and sides, making it ‘pop’ into crisp focus. The minimalist button count give a timeless style that’s typical of the Cambridge Audio brand. The teardrop facia with wedge foot mirrors the CX Series, showing a strong family link between ranges.
Make your move into hi-fi separates in style, with the class-leading Cambridge Audio AXA25.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eric low from Excellent sound quality and build I purchased this Cambridge Audio AXA25 a few weeks ago from Richer Sounds as always and I am amazed at the richness, clarity and soundstage from it. For an amp delivering 25 wpc it produces first class sound. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cliff Armour from Another great amp from Cambridge Audio. Another very nice amplifier from Cambridge Audio, I've had a few over the years, stylishly sleek profile with perfectly delivered sound quality for the price. Some items of note, it is described as lunar grey, not the typical silver or black of most stereo units. and I really like it. Don't be put off by the 25w output you will find it is more than enough for most listeners. My only criticism relates to the power light, it is always on, does not change colour to indicate if the unit is on or not and there are no other lights on the unit to give you an indication. Essentially, if no sound is coming out, it's probably off. Be aware and don't complain later it doesn't come with remote control, I can live with that, so not a complaint really but it would have been nice. Also a nod to Richer Sounds, very professional service given at all times thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cps 44 from Just perfect. I have used Cambridge audio separates for over thirty years. Their quality endures. I use this new piece along with it's sister cd player (AXC25). This setup serves me well. There is now an even smoother and sensitive control via the knobs which, for me, allows more fine tuning of sound and balance than the 'staggered' system with remote control. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bribo from Entry level amplifier I bought this amp online from Richer Sounds and it is a beautiful piece of kit. It has a sleek build that you would expect from Cambridge Audio but not the power that I need for my set up. the above rating is reflective of my personal experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great sound for the price Decided to upgrade a very old AMP and at the same time upgraded all my cables to Cambridge also. Such a noticeable improvement for what is a budget amp. Really pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by Groomy from Great buy! My old Arcam of 25yrs failed and unfortunately I am not in a position to afford to replace it with the new Arcam model. However the AXA25 is doing a great job and I would recommend it to anyone. The staff in the Leicester store are exemplary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spirrie1 from Great prices, products and service I was looking for my first step into the world of Hifi and opted for a package from RicherSounds that totally fit the bill. Sound quality and overall build quality of this system and speakers are brilliant. Sadly I'm still living in a flat so can't crank the volume up as loud as if like but will soon get to test them out properly. Delivery was so quick too. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DylanRamsay from Looks stunning and the sound is no different! Handles my 3020i well, and sounds great, the response is also fab with the physical dials on the front being very useful and tactile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulesB from Beautifully designed and a beautiful sound I asked my well informed great nephew to recommend a pound system to me and he immediately recommended Cambridge Audio. I am so glad he did! the amplifier and CD player are so well designed and look very good in my architect designed living room. They are easy to use and make a great sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyra from Excellent Budget Amp I wasn't sure what to expect from this amp, it was bought for a secondary system while I am working away from home for 5 months. While there are no frills, 4 RCA inputs, 1 aux (shares with RCA4), no preamp out, no wifi or bluetooth etc. what you do get is a very strong, very clean sound that faithfully reproduces what gets sent to it (chiefly FLAC files). Paired with the Q 3010i's and Chord ClearwayX its doing a solid job for very comfortable and pleasant listening. If you deep in to hifi, you already know this is not the core of a main system, but for a secondary system, someone new to hifi or running on a budget the focus on the audio quality without waste on extraneous features makes for a very solid choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great build quality, great all round sound A great little amplifier, highly recommended for those who like great all round sound. Of course for audiophiles more expensive options will always fare better, but for me this does a job very well indeed. I'm listening to a Chet Baker & Crew At The Forum Theatre from 1956 (on CD) as I write this, and not only is the music faithfully reproduced, but also "the sound of the room" a point which often gets overlooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by andy5555 from Great sound and quality for this price I have got this connected to some Wharfedale 12.1's and this sound is great. Its a good price, but definitely not a budget product and its got everything you will need for a small(ish) room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by peterbibby61 from Excellent sound I was bought this as a birthday present and have been very impressed by the improved quality of the sound coming out of my tired old speakers. The only criticism I have is the the difference in the on/off light between "ON" and "ON-standby" is a bit too subtle for my old eyes. A change of colour would have been much more helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JR00 from Really good All good. Took me a while to work out how to put the banana plugs in (tweak out the stem from the solid caps) but all straightforward after that. Looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacksonh from Great sound, modest features. Like this amplifier very much. Good clear sound but another output connection on the back and a headphone socket would not have gone amiss. All in all highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gabemv from Really easy to set up and great sound quality Bought this in early January with a bit of xmas money to get a proper hifi system in my bedroom (where I listen to most of my music) and this, along with the Dali Spektor twin speakers work absolutely perfectly, great sound quality for a pretty low budget!!
