Solid Build
Solid build, hefty transformers and a spartan feature set combine to give the AXR85 a vintage vibe. Mine is paired with PSB Alpha T20 speakers. I find the eq is voiced in a particular way ( is that the "British" sound they refer to?) Overall, I am pleased with this purchase and with the quality and sound of the Cambridge Audio AXR85 stereo receiver.

Overall Good Receiver
Good receiver with Bluetooth that performs well. Instruction are lacking and downloading the manual not much help in trying to use preset stations. All in all a good receiver.

Never had Cambridge products til now although I always been admiring it's impressive specs. Thanks to my Nakamichi receiver breakdown. Another excellent audio product that I enjoyed for years.

Out with the old
My old, very old, audio system finally expired. Researching current offerings gave me some trepidation; so much new terminology I was unfamiliar with. Not to worry with this Cambridge selection. Set up was straightforward. CD plugs here, MMI Phono here, power it up and play. I like the volume control with its seemingly infinitesimal settings. My only nitpick was the power button which works with a light tap (good) but not with my hammy handed push and hold.

Very fun entry level receiver. Tuner sounds great as does Bluetooth. Punchy sound. Treble is not fatiguing.

I chose this receiver because I have an old system and need something that will be compatable with cd player/phono/cassette player and also has am/fm radio. Spoke with an assistant who recommended that the cambridge would work. I'm looking forward to recieving it to replace my old dying receiver.

Can I connect my tv sound? How?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The AXR85 has analog audio line inputs. TV sound can be connected if it has: analog headphone jack connected to line input, audio output connected to line input, and if capable of Bluetooth streaming to headphone or soundbar can be received by AXR via Bluetooth.
How many channels? Whats the wattage per channel?
John M on Oct 21, 2021
  Thanks for your question. The AXR85 is a stereo , two channel, receiver. Rated power is 85 watts per channel into 8 ohms.
are their pre-outs to upgade with a bigger power amp?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. Neither Cambridge stereo receiver has pre-outs. Unfortunately, pre-outs on a receiver disappeared a number of years ago. Denon, Marantz, and Yamaha no longer have pre-outs either.
Does this come in black?
