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.
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.
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 3 out of 5 by CTLazar from A good entry level integrated amplifier. Bought as a replacement for my old Cambridge A4. It’s not bad as an entry level amp. Compared to the A4 the bass is nowhere as low and rich, consequently an additional sub-bass will be required. The sound quality controls are just bass, treble and balance and are nice and simple. I chose this as it has an integrated Bluetooth adapter which certainly makes things convenient though the quality of that is a little bandwidth restricted so sounds a tad muffled. Finally, the remote can be a little slow to respond to a firm touch. This is a good starting point and is good value for money. I was a little disappointed as I thought I would have equivalent bass quality as my old A4 and expected the Bluetooth adapter to be better quality too. That said, I’m getting used to it and it’s ok for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Solar77Quest from Really good amplifier for the price Really happy with this amplifier. It's more than adequate to drive the Klipsch floorstanding speakers it's connected to.. Good clean sound, with scope for connecting another set of speakers and a subwoofer if i choose to do so. If you're looking for an amp in this price range then you can be sure this one is really good quality and easy to use.
