AXC35 CD Player (Lunar Grey)
This matches up well with the AX 100 receiver. I paired everything with Acoustic Energy AE100 Mk2's. Even my old ears can tell the difference. It's been 35 years since my last upgraded. I'm glad I finally did.

Excellent Sound and a Contributor to Keeping Alive the CD
First off, the service at Worldwide Stereo was swift and spot on. This CD player is my first purchase.
This Cambridge CD player, which I just received today, brings life to my CDs by extracting every bit of information from them. I played a CD of Ella Fitzgerald's Broadway tunes album and first track, which featured castanets, made me feel as if I was just a few feet from Fitzgerald. The castanets were vivid in sound; there was no 'muffling'. I'm now playing a recording of Paul Badura-Skoda playing a Schubert sonata and this player continues to deliver on sonic clarity. This recording was made in 1971 and it sounds as if Badura-Skoda made it yesterday. I was an early adoptee of the Compact Disc as a collector of classical music recordings. As one who was born in the year when stereo LPs first came out, I had bought a number of LPs during my youth and young adulthood. I also got caught up in the vinyl revival and had recently acquired a number of LPs. But this fantastic CD player is reviving my interest in CDs. The CD, properly mastered', still cannot be beat in terms of sonic clarity and range. It is this CD player and others of its class that could bring about a revival of the CD in the age of Tidal and Apple Music. It is a no-nonsense player that seems solidly built and delivers on its excellent ability to extract a CD's musical 'info'. For this collector of recordings, I look forward to re-listening to the CDs I had collected through the years, thanks to this player. That the Gramophone magazine still features recordings available on CDs is proof that the CD is not 'dead'. This Cambridge Audio CD player, by delivering its wonderful sonic goods, is doing its part in keeping the CD alive.

Great stereo components
I am very happy with the Cambridge Audio CD and ARX85 amp components I purchased from World Wide Stereo. Great sound, beautifully designed products and very good service.
I love both the Cambridge Audio CD player and the AXR85 amp/tuner. They look and sound great !

Incredible sound for the price
I have not had this long, so I cannot speak to reliability. Also, if you are looking for bells and whistles, this is not the CD player for you because it is quite minimalist, which I like. What I can speak to is that it sounds amazingly good, far better than I had any reason to expect, across a wide range of genres. The sound is detailed without being harsh and fatiguing, and I've been enjoying it a lot.

Fantastic for my system.
I'm 65 and have been getting back into rebuilding my stereo system after many years of listening on my "Vintage " stuff ( Which is younger than I ) I have been mainly into LP's but since I have hundreds of CDs dating back to their emergence in the music world I thought I should give them a chance again. This player is leaps and bounds better sounding than any of the decks I have owned in the last 30 or so years. It could blow my Kenwood , Technics and Panasonic players away if they were still alive !

AXC35 CD Player (Silver)
I haven't had a decent CD player for 20 yrs. For the last 5 or 6 I've been using a DVD/BluRay player for my CD music . After getting back into vinyl and upgrading my whole system , I didn't want to leave my cd collection out . This unit kicks butt ! I'm sure new tech and better engineering are the reasons , but this one is leaps and bounds above my Technics and Pioneer decks from the 80's and 90's . Which I paid almost the same for back then !

Budget equipment-Incredible sound
I had to replace my 10 year old Marantz that was starting to skip. I was skeptical about the price (less than my Marantz) but I am now retired and on a fixed income. I was very surprised when after a couple of discs I could hear the improved channel separation and overall clarity of the Cambridge. Don't be fooled by the price, this is high-end gear. Very happy with my purchase.

Great products and service
For years I had a throw -together system including an old DVD player as my CD player. I gave Cambridge Audio a try for a new updated receiver and was very pleased. When I decided to get the matching CD player , they were hard to come by. World wide stereo had an option to send out an email when the unit was back in stock. When I received the email , I ordered immediately and received a shipping notification that day. My unit arrived quickly and i was very impressed with the quality. World wide stereo has great products and service. I’m very pleased with my experience!

Why did you choose this?
World Wide Stereo Store
I did a lot of research. I wanted a good DAC to start, but also a digital output so I could upgrade. I also believe in pairing equipment with the same manufacturer. The AX series seem to be designed to work together. This is my first upgrade since the 80’s.

My JVC cd player from 1988 finally died and this looked like the most bang for the buck.

Can this be connected directly to powered speakers?
David B on Sep 20, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. If your powered speakers have either RCA line inputs or 3.5mm audio line inputs either, with appropriate cable, can be connected to the analog audio line outputs on the AXC35.
