The Cambridge Audio AXR85 Stereo Receiver features a powerful amplifier combined with good connectivity including Phono input for a turntable, AM/FM radio and Bluetooth for streaming from a phone or tablet. Save on space and build on convenience and style, with the Cambridge Audio AXR85 stereo receiver.


Packing a powerful amp with Bluetooth connectivity and a quality AM/FM 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 a turntable with a MM (moving magnet) cartridge, the AXR85 is the perfect amp for a vinyl based system. It doesn’t end there, though. Three 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.
