Stereo Receiver

£349
A powerful, fully equipped amp pairs with a quality tuner to deliver a stereo receiver with true hi-fi credentials – the Cambridge Audio AXR85 delivers it all.

One box does it all

Packing a powerful amp with Bluetooth connectivity and a quality tuner radio, the Cambridge Audio AXR85 is your one-stop solution to all-inclusive stereo playback.

Punchy performer with two sets of speaker outputs
Packing a hefty 85 watts per channel, the AXR85 has enough grunt to fill larger rooms with clean, effortless sound. Twin speaker outlets mean you can have a pair of speakers in another room or spread four speakers around a large, open-plan space.

Your whole system connected – including a turntable
Featuring a phono input (for turntable with MM cartridge), the AXR85 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. For more bass, you can add your choice of active subwoofer via the dedicated output.

Built-in Bluetooth
With Bluetooth built-in, streaming music from your smartphone, tablet or laptop is just a click away. Pair with your device and effortlessly stream your stored music and popular music streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music.

Tune in
Covering all the bases, the Cambridge Audio AXR85 also features a built-in FM/AM radio. With 30 presets, you can quickly call up all your favourite stations. The RDS (Radio Data System) FM tuner displays the radio name and gives other display information.

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 cool white display and logical layout 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.

Save on space and build on convenience and style, with the Cambridge Audio AXR85 stereo receiver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound, easy to set up and great value Bought this, the AXC35 and Audio Tecnica Turntable with Fyne Speakers and have been listening to CDs & Tuner since it arrived a week ago - WOW what a great sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit The axr 85 and axc 35 work well together with an excellent simplistic look, I will be looking to add to the set in the future. Thanks for the service

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp with additional functionality Great product and spatial sound from the amp. Helped with the additional bonus of tuner and Bluetooth. Ease to use and setup. Lovely simplistic, demure design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from slightly dissapointed Looks good and performs as it should as an amp. Poor quality remote and very disappointed with the bluetooth connection. Also automatically turns off after an hour inactivity which is annoying as the remote is rubbish at turning back on..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty fine! Really easy to set up, great sound. Allows me to listen to vinyl (via Pro-Ject Primary E), CD (via the also great CA AXA25), FM radio and Spotify / streaming via the inbuilt bluetooth. Only slight negative's are the absence of DAB radio and the kaka remote control - but I hardly ever use that anyway!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality and great features My hi fi broke down after 20 years of good and devoted services and I was looking for something not too expensive but with reliable sound quality. I went for a demo at RicherSounds to compare different amplifiers: Cambridge Audio AXR85 - Sony STR-DH190 and Marantz PM6006. They recommended straight the Cambridge Audio AXR85, and they were right! I did not hear so much difference with the Marantz to be fair (but Cambridge has the bluetooth option) but it was so much better than the Sony. The sound is crystal clear, crispy with a very nice left/right balance of sounds. It truly dissects the music you listen to and will make you discover your music library with a total new approach. It comes with FM/AM radio which works really well, a built in Bluetooth which is so convenient and easy to set up (and which offers a good sound quality as well), a phono input which was essential for my turn table and the possibility to connect four speakers. Within 5 minutes following delivery, the amplifier was connected to all my devices and I was able to enjoy my records again...I should say to appreciate 10 times more listening to my records as this amplifier makes the whole difference in my living room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Early indications are good Early days yet, but it feels solidly built and I have no complaints about sound quality. I like the twin speaker outputs as bi-wiring is a breeze. The remote control receiver could be more sensitive, and the Bluetooth receiver struggles to receive a clean signal, but that could be due to the furniture where I have put my amp - others may not have an issue in a more open setting. I've hooked my amazon echo in rather than use Bluetooth as a result. Overall I'm reasonably happy with the amp in general, and happy with the sound quality. Service from Richer Sounds was good too - prompt delivery, no concerns there. It replaced an Arcam Diva A85 that wasn't economically repairable - old, but an £800 amp nonetheless.
