Richer Sounds exclusive model.
”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

“Sound quality is excellent, and its minimalist features set makes it a delight to use.” - cnet.com

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp amazing value for money Bought this to replace a 70s amp which finally bit the dust. Really easy to use, looks amazing and the sound is fantastic. Amazing value for money, vinyl and digital both sound really good through it. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio HI Fi I bought an AXC35 and AXA35 to work with an existing Thorens deck and new Dali Oberon speakers. Happy with them despite failure of the amp at start up. Richer Sounds replaced immediately and all good now. Good support and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab sound and looks Wife got me this amp as a christmas present to replace my 30 yr old pioneer A404 and some old gale gold monitor speakers with cheap amazon speaker cable. I have to say it is fabulous with detailed crisp sound even at low volumes it is paired with a very old project debut and i can hear things i havent heard for years! also run a dab radio through the 3mm input on front panel and sounds crisp and detailed. Perfect amp for me and perfect service from Mikey in Leeds branch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing 'Budget' Amplifier Couldn't be happier with my new amplifier. It's a neat package, looks smart and functions well but most importantly sound is great. You can splurge some serious cash on these things but why bother if it's just for home use. This is perfect for my living room which is never going to require huge volume. Sound through my Dali Spector 2 speakers is crisp, warm and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Record Player hi-fi system We wanted to buy a record player and amp so that we could play our old records. Didn’t really know what the options were. Liam at the Stoke branch was very helpful and spent time showing us options and answering our questions. Before the final purchase he set up a couple of systems so that we could listen to the difference. Now have good set up and very happy with our purchase. Price seemed very good compared to other suppliers. Would go back again if needed anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, great sound As pleased as I am with my purchase, was disappointed that I was unable to get my original Cambridge amplifier also Luxman record deck (purchased from Richer Sounds), admittedly some time ago, repaired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AXA35: beautiful piece of kit. This is my first amplifier after deciding to build my own hi-fi system, and after researching the components found the AXA35. The design and built quality is beautiful, and the sound is smooth and powerful. In a small home I can’t imagine needing an amp with any more than the 35W per channel this has. With my ELAC Debut B5.2 speakers hooked up it fills the room and shakes the house effortlessly. Would recommend without any hesitation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as great as the reviews suggest Firstly, I wanted a basic amp without a DAC, bluetooth etc built in. I already have a DAC and a chromecast audio. I went for the AXA35 because of the good reviews and that it had a powered USB socket on the back. I figured I would use that to power the chromecast audio for a nice slick set-up. There is one major issue though, connected to a usual usb power supply and connected to the AXA35 the sound was really nice but using the powered usb on the AXA35 it introduces a lot of unwelcomed electrical noise. In the quite parts of music it is especially noticeable. I then through I would try the USB socket to power a USB Dac... it doesn't power it. I even tried to charge a phone with it, it seems to doesn't even give out enough power to slow charge a phone! The powered USB socket is not fit for purpose. One other gripe, is the volume level... it resets each time you turn off the amp. I would have expected when you turned it off and on, it would stay at the volume level you last had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use with great sound I purchased this along with a new turntable and speakers about two weeks ago. The advise I received in the Reading store really helped with the decision on the set up and I would recommend going into the store when choosing which set up to go for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality Bought this to replace my Cambridge azur 540A, which was still going after 21 years until I damaged the speaker terminals in transit. This AXA35 delivers even richer sound (!). Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio Amp I purchased a Cambridge Audio Amp to replace a Musical Fidelity Amp that I had used for nearly 30 years. I must say I am delighted with the new amp, and it’s great to have a British company supplying such a quality product. The amp is built from quality materials and I’m sure it will last a lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks fine; sounds fine - the remote is niggly. The Cambridge AXA35 replaced a Rogers A75 and then a Vortexion 25 watt amp - both over 40 years old and both of which gave up the ghost one after the other! The sound quality of the AXA35 is fine, although the bass is less meaty than that of the old amps. It is in use with two large folded horns with "Stentorian" 12" full-range drivers (see photo), and is used for TV as well as turntable. The remote control has a niggle or two. It is a multi-purpose one also designed for use with a CD/DVD player and the menu gives control over the AXA35. It is not positive in engagement, however, sometimes failing to switch off (and on) and, admittedly a minor point, the previous sound levels revert each time to zero and have to be reset at each play. The amp is pleasing in design and its size matches the CD & DVD units on the hi-fi trolley where it lives. Time will tell if the amp is reliable and capable of lasting 40 years like the ones it replaced! I've only had it a month!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cambridge audio axa35 really love the look of these units, above all sound quality is very detailed ,mid and high range lively and clear, bass is balanced and well controlled paired with the dali specktor 2 speakers , old cd's are bought to life and are a pleasure to rediscover , if fine tuning is required on older cd's this amp deals with it with ease , i would highly recommend the axa35 do not think you would be disappointed given its a budget set up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great replacement Intergrated Amplifier I finally got around to replacing my old intergrated amplifier I received with a tape player and speakers for my 18th birthday. I am now 48, and following a purchase of a Cambridge audio CD player in 2010 (Topaz CD10), I decided to try a Cambridge Audio Amplifier - very pleased that I did. It has a very good build quality, a more refined, detailed and richer sound (from what I was used to) and the remote control also works with the much older model CD player (which has it's own remote in any case). These products are built to last and are great quality so justifies the value of the purchase, even though this is more at the budget level of the overall range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clear sound! This is a most excellent amp, especially for the money, the clarity of sound through my bass speaker is amazing, very happy with this purchase and most definitely recommend! The only down side is it turns itself down every time it's switched off but that's probably something to do with the settings that I haven't worked out yet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant amp for its price Bought an Axa35 last week to pair with my ProJect Primary-E turntable as i really couldnt splash too much being on a tight budget. This product not only succeeded in doing the job but really stands out an ensures a great listen. So simple and elegant and really gives the customer some satisfaction when trying to get the most bang for your buck. highly recommend for somebody just getting into creating a HI-FI system but still wanting to save on cost. Was also delivered on time and well packaged, although there isn’t much in terms of instruction but that just shows how straight forward it is to set up without having to faff around too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with purchase It is difficult to to say whether the AXA35 is better than the competition without A to B comparisons but I am happy with the sound and functionality, and I am always happy to take advice from the guys at my local Richer Sounds who recommended me the Cambridge Audio AXA35 for my needs. The amp feels substantial and well made and looks good. Cambridge Audio have built a reputation for providing really excellent price to performance products and the AXA is very well reviewed so I have no problems recommending it as have many owners and reviewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks neat and tidy sounds superb Brought the amp to go with the cd player as my old cd player started to skip. And for the first time straight out of the box the sound was bang on. No adjustment needed just sit back and enjoy the music even at lower volume it still produces a smile and continues to inpress
