About the Cambridge Audio AXC35

It does one job very well

Most manufacturers are jamming more functions into every component they make. The Cambridge AXC35 is designed to do one thing — play CDs and make them sound amazing.

It does one job very well

Most manufacturers are jamming more functions into every component they make. The Cambridge AXC35 is designed to do one thing — play CDs and make them sound amazing.

It features a Wolfson digital-to-analog converter and stereo RCA line output, so you can feed signal directly to an amp like the Cambridge AXA35. Or you can use the coaxial digital audio output to connect a high-quality Cambridge DAC.

The AXC35 plays audio CDs, CD-Rs and CD-RWs. You can tailor your listening experience by using one of the component's playback modes: repeat one, repeat all, random, or programmable memory.

Features

Disc Compatibility: The Cambridge Audio AXC35 compact disc player supports playback of CD audio discs, as well as CD-R and CD-RW discs with MP3 and WMA audio files. It even supports gapless playback of your compatible discs.

Wolfson DAC: The Cambridge Audio AXC35 compact disc player utilizes a Wolfson Microelectronics WM8524 digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to convert digital information stored on a CD into an analog sound signal. This high-quality DAC supports up to 24-bit/192kHz, 2ch stereo PCM.

Stereo Analog Outputs: The AXC35 compact disc player is outfitted with stereo analog audio outputs for connecting to your stereo receiver or integrated amplifier.

Coaxial Digital Output: There is coaxial (RCA) digital output that allows you to record from a CD to a digital format or even connect to a standalone DAC when you want to improve your sound quality even more.

Front-Panel Display: The front-panel display indicates disc CD, CD-R, and CD-RW playback information; such as track number, total number tracks, time elapsed, and total length of disc.

Simple Controls: The Cambridge Audio AXC35 compact disc player offers front-panel and remote control. Front-panel controls included Power On/Off, Open/Close, Play/Pause, Stop, Previous/Next Track, and Fast Forward/Rewind. The IR wireless remote provides all the same controls as the front-panel; plus additional controls such as Random, Repeat (One/All), Program (20-tracks), and Direct Track Access (0-9 numeric keypad). The remote also provides wireless control for certain functions of a Cambridge Audio integrated amplifier or stereo receiver; these functions include Source Selection, Volume Up/Down, and Mute.

Auto Power Down (APD): After 20 minutes of no audio playback and inactivity, the compact disc player will automatically go into Standby mode.

Customer Q&A

10 questions already asked

Q
Is this rack mountable?
[ Mark  Nov 23, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
The unit I received does not appear to have the screw holes near the front to attach the rack ears. This is what I'm used to seeing on equipment that can be put on a shelf or rack mounted. However, there are a number of rack shelves that would work fine, I've also used these. For example, go to www.crutchfield.com and search on rack shelves. Since the CD player weighs a little less than 10 pounds, you should have many choices. You can get a solid shelf; however, I would recommend one with holes in case you want to support higher powered equipment which requires ventilation.
[ CAM  Nov 23, 2020 ]
A
That would be a negative.
[ Joel  Nov 23, 2020 ]
Q
Does this unit come in black?
[ steve  Nov 15, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Don't think it comes in black. Most Cambridge products come in silver. Just a limited few come in black. You can always check the Cambridge website for more information. They have a toll free phone number listed on their website too.
[ HORACE  Nov 23, 2020 ]
A
As far as I know, it does not come in black, but as an afterthought, you might consider a unit by NAD I upgraded from a Cambridge to an NAD and heard a big difference.
[ Carl  Nov 15, 2020 ]
Q
is it better to connect this CD player to my receiver via optical or RCA connection?
[ Stephen  Oct 14, 2020 ]
5 answers
A
Optical is much better. You will notice a big difference. Good question.
[ HORACE  Nov 23, 2020 ]
A
I have RCA connections and have not had any problems; however, the cambridge is hooked up to a 15yr old macintosh ma6500 integrated amp.
[ Lewis  Oct 15, 2020 ]
A
I would use a high end rca
[ Carl  Oct 14, 2020 ]
A
I use RCA.
[ Norman  Oct 14, 2020 ]
A
It depends on if you want to use the DAC on the CD player or the DAC on your receiver. Personally, I connect to the CXA61 receiver via optical because I think the quality of the DAC might be better in the CXA61 than in the AXC35. You could try both ways and see which sounds better to you.
[ ART  Oct 14, 2020 ]
Q
Will this play SACD's?
[ Eddie  Jul 26, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
No you will need a SACD player.
[ Phil  Aug 11, 2020 ]
A
Hi Eddie, I don't know. I don't have any SACD's. It works great with all of my cd's. Including the ones I purchased back in the late 1980's. You can always call Cambridge Audio and ask them. Their phone number for the U.S. is on their website. I have the original Whitney Houston CD that was released in 1985. The AXC35 make it sound like I've never heard it before. Buying this unit will not be a bad decision. (My opinion). This is the best sounding cd player I have ever owned. Good luck! Regards
[ HORACE  Aug 11, 2020 ]
A
No -- The AXC35 does not play SACD disks.
[ Ken  Aug 11, 2020 ]

Maybe you should stick to your Sony Walkman cassette player.
[ HORACE  Nov 23, 2020 ]
A
Separately
[ Norman  Aug 11, 2020 ]

It is a CD player component that needs to be connected to an amplifier/receiver.
[ Dennis  Dec 17, 2019 ]
A

[ IMTIAZ  Dec 16, 2019 ]

The AXC35 is a deck only. You would need to connect to an amplifier and speaker system.
[ Eugene  Dec 16, 2019 ]

[ Christian  Aug 13, 2019 ]
