    ”The AXA35 is a great budget buy and you’ll struggle to find a more confident-sounding stereo amp for the money.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £299

    Power up

    Boasting 35 watts per channel, the AXA35 is 40% more powerful than the smaller AXA25. This not only means it’s better at filling larger rooms but also in delivering a richer, more dynamic sound at lower volumes.

    A step-up in quality
    As well as being more powerful, the AXA35 also improves internal component quality, giving improved sonic detail and realism with less distortion. The toroidal power transformer and separate pre/power amp circuit boards are features usually only found in much more expensive amplifiers, making the AXA35 something of a giant-slayer.

    Convenient features
    Although the AXA35 is dedicated to giving the best sound possible, this doesn’t mean it’s left out handy features. Over the more basic AXA25 model, you’ll find the addition of a headphone socket and a system remote control that also operates matching Cambridge Audio CD players and streamers. The digital display makes it easy to check the amp’s operating status.

    Your whole system connected – including a turntable
    Featuring a phono input (for turntable with MM cartridge), the AXA35 is the perfect amp for a vinyl based system. It doesn’t end here, though. Four RCA phono inputs are ideal for a CD player, streamer, games console and even your TV set-top box. 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 profile with wedge foot mirrors the CX Series, showing a strong family link between ranges.

    Take your stereo sound to the next level, with the Cambridge Audio AXA35.

    A quality CD player with an eye to the future – the Cambridge Audio AXC35 has a digital output for great sound now and even better later.

    Putting sound first

    Under the lid, the AXC35 is thoroughly engineered. Features such as the centrally mounted CD drive, double-sided circuit boards, separate power and output boards and a top quality Wolfson DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) mark this CD player out as a model for the music connoisseur. To hear the music just as the artist intended, the AXC35 gives your system the best start possible.

    Digital output for upgrade potential
    A great feature over the AXC25 model below is the standard digital coaxial output. This simple socket gives loads of extra functionality and upgrade potential. Use it to connect directly to a digital amp or AV receiver. Alternatively, connect a digital recording device for the highest quality digital recording. Add an outboard DAC in the future and you’ve also got the potential for even better sound quality.

    Now with gapless playback
    New to the AXC35 is gapless playback. With some CDs, a marker point is placed between tracks, even though the music runs continuously. This produces an annoying pause in the music as the player reads the track marker. With gapless playback, this is no longer an issue, meaning you get to hear the whole album exactly as the artist intended.

    "Want to know what the best sounding budget speakers on the market are? Easy, its Wharfedales brand-new Diamond 220s." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine, 5-star review.

    The legend continues

    It was back in 1981 when the Wharfedale Diamond first redefined expectations of small speakers. The original model proved that a small speaker didn't necessarily need to sound 'small', that a budget speaker could sound full-bodied without being intrusive. The latest Diamond 220 follows on from the highly successful 121 model and has already received an excited response.

    New cabinet for improved sound
    New to the Wharfedale Diamond 220 is a sandwich cabinet design. Rather than the simple chipboard and MDF used by the previous Diamond 121, the new 220 uses particle board sandwiched by MDF on either side. This gives superb rigidity and damping properties, helping to further reduce the already low levels of distortion. A further benefit is the smooth MDF construction provides a cleaner surface for the veneer; meaning a smoother finish all round.

    Ported design
    Also new is the gloss finished baffle, making the speakers far more pleasing to the eye. As before, the 220 ports the bass via an integral plinth, rather than the more usual front or rear holes. This not only provides a more efficient and even bass output but also makes the speaker easier to place: you don't have to take wall positioning into account.

    New drive units, class-leading sound
    The bass driver is formed from woven Kevlar with ribs for added rigidity, but has a revised magnet system for tighter control of the sound. Vocals still sound incredibly realistic, and the bass is upbeat and never lags. At the other end of the scale the treble unit is surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. This helps to improve the imaging and 'width' of sound, making it easier to pick out individual instruments, as well as providing loads of detail. Put together, the overall sound quality is still fantastically well-balanced.

    With its latest upgrades the Wharfedale Diamond 220 has truly come of age. If ever there was an argument for evolution over revolution in speaker design, a listen to the Diamond 220 proves the case for the former - and then some!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I wanted to upgrade my mini hifi for a new analog system to complement my recently purchased Pro-ject T1 turntable. Cambridge Audio was recommended by a couple of friends so after a bit of research decided to buy this package as it continued the Wharfdale Diamonds (older versions of which I had years ago). Added Cambridge interconnects and some quality speaker cable and after 2 days delivery set it up. Wow fantastic sound, great looks and easy purchase, cannot be happier. Well recommended .
