About the Cambridge Audio AXR100

A powerful receiver to build your system around

I've always loved Cambridge Audio receivers — they provide plenty of power and a handy array of connections, plus the brushed aluminum front plate projects an understated elegance. The beefy toroidal transformer inside the AXR100 is the foundation for the receiver's 100 watts per channel of clean power — plenty to drive a pair of Aeromax 6 towers, or just about any other speakers you like.

A powerful receiver to build your system around

I've always loved Cambridge Audio receivers — they provide plenty of power and a handy array of connections, plus the brushed aluminum front plate projects an understated elegance. The beefy toroidal transformer inside the AXR100 is the foundation for the receiver's 100 watts per channel of clean power — plenty to drive a pair of Aeromax 6 towers, or just about any other speakers you like.

Digital and analog connections

You'll find plenty of inputs for just about any component you want to connect to the AXR100. There are two Toslink optical digital inputs on the back panel (my favorite way to hook up my TV), and one coaxial digital input, which is ideal for connecting a CD transport like the Cambridge CXC.

Analog music lovers have plenty to work with, too. There's a dedicated phono stage for connecting a turntable with moving magnet cartridge, and three more RCA inputs for your other components. If you want to use your mobile device as a source, a 3.5mm aux input is conveniently located on the front panel. And built-in Bluetooth® makes it easy to stream music wirelessly from a compatible phone, tablet, or laptop.

The AXR100 features a stereo "record out" output on the back panel, and a mono RCA output lets you hook up a powered subwoofer, to provide some extra low-frequency punch. Two sets of binding posts give you the flexibility to set up A and B speaker pairs, and a front-panel selector makes switching between them easy.

Features

2Ch Amplifier: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 stereo receiver delivers 100 watts x 2 channels into 8-ohms @ 20-20kHz with 0.15% THD.

AM/FM Tuner: The built-in AM/FM tuner provides manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store up to 15 FM presets and 15 AM presets. The tuner supports RDS for station name song/artist information (no album art). You can select between US (AM: 530-1710kHz / FM: 87.5-108MHz) or European (AM: 522-1629kHz / FM: 87.5-108MHz) tuning. You can select between Stereo or Mono when listening to FM; for low quality stereo FM signals, selecting mono can usually reduce the noise. There is 75-ohm FM connector and a 300-ohm two-wire AM connector on the receiver back-panel. A FM wire antenna and AM loop antenna are included.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 features built-in Bluetooth 5.0 with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP) and control (AVRCP). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your Bluetooth-enabled source device (such as your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer) to the AXR100 stereo receiver. You'll also be able to control basic playback functions, such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track from the included remote. Advanced music navigation and song/artist information will still be done from your Bluetooth source device. The receiver can pair with up to 8 devices, but only one can be used for playback at a time. The unit will automatically connect with the last paired device when in wireless range (up to 33').

Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 is equipped with a with two optical (toslink) digital inputs and one coaxial (RCA) digital input for connection of a CD player, DVD player, or TV. The digital inputs support 2ch PCM audio (16- or 24-bit / 32-192kHz).

Note: The digital inputs do not support Dolby Digital, DTS, or other multichannel audio formats.

Line-Level Inputs: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 stereo receiver is outfitted with three rear-panel line-level analog RCA outputs for connection of external audio source devices - such as a CD player, tape-deck, or network streaming device (all sold separately). There is also a front-panel Aux (3.5mm) input for connection of a portable audio device with an analog line-level or headphone output.

Phono Input: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 has a built-in Phono preamplifier (Phono Stage) with a rear-panel phono input and ground terminal. The phono input supports turntables outfitted with Phono Cartridges of the Moving Magnet (MM) or high output Moving Coil (MC) type (between 2-6mV output and 30-50k load impedance). The Ground terminals on both the AXR100 stereo receiver and your turntable should be connected (where possible) with a ground wire for lowest noise/hum pickup.

Note: Low output Moving Coil cartridge types (<1mV and usually 10-1000 ohm load impedance) cannot be directly connected to the phono input and will require an external phono preamplifier (sold separately) compatible with low output Moving Coil cartridges.

Record Output: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 stereo receiver features a stereo RCA record output for connecting a CD recorder, tape deck or other compatible recording device. The record output provides a constant line level output that does not fluctuate with the volume of the stereo receiver.

Note: The Record output cannot be used as a preamp output or subwoofer output.

Binding Post A/B Speaker Terminals: The Cambridge Audio AXR100 is equipped with a A & B speaker terminals for connecting up to two pair of loudspeakers or bi-wiring a single pair of loudspeakers. These binding post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). Plastic caps need to be removed from the binding post terminals in order to use banana plugs. When connecting a single pair of speakers you can use 4-ohm to 8-ohm compatible speakers. When connecting two pair of loudspeakers or when bi-wiring a single pair of loudspeaker use only 8-ohm compatible speakers.

Note: When used together, the A & B speaker output terminals will always playback the same source content at the same volume level.

Subwoofer Output: The Cambridge Audio stereo receiver is equipped with a mono-RCA subwoofer output for connecting a powered subwoofer. The subwoofer output features a fixed 200Hz low-pass crossover filter.

1/4" Headphone Jack: The front-panel 1/4" headphone jack allows for connection of a set of stereo headphones with an impedance between 32 and 600-ohms. Connecting a set of headphones will automatically mute the stereo receiver's speaker outputs.

USB Charging Port: There is a USB-A (5V/500mA) port located on the back of the AXR100 stereo receiver that can be used to charge your smartphone or tablet, or supply power to a Bluetooth adapter.

Note: This USB port does not support audio playback.

Simple Control: The Cambridge Audio stereo receiver offers front-panel controls for simple, convenient operation. The included IR remote provides wireless operation of the stereo receiver.

  • Volume/Mute: A front-panel rotary knob or push-buttons on the remote control the volume level of the receiver's speaker outputs, subwoofer output, and headphone output. It does not affect the level of the Record Output. There is also a Mute function on the remote control.
  • Tone & Balance: You'll be able to adjust Bass (100Hz) & Treble (20kHz) from -10 to +10dB, as well as adjust the balance in sound output between the connected left and right speakers.

Front-Panel Display: The front-panel display indicates selected input source, station identification, and menu selections; as well as volume and tone levels.

Q
How will this receiver perform with 28 year old Boston Acoustic speakers in a one bedroom apartment? I need quality sound with warmth but I will not be cranking up to 11.
[ Calvin  Oct 20, 2020 ]

A
I use mine with a pair of Monitor Audio Silver bookshelf speakers that are probably 40 years old (if they made them back then but I think they did) in the living room of my apartment and it rocks. Terrific warmth at low volumes with plenty of head room for demanding passages. I run mine in 4 ohm mode and I couldn't be happier. Cambridge Audio makes excellent gear. I picked up a Cambridge Audio powered subwoofer through Crutchfield along with the acoustic isolation mount (to show a little mercy on the neighbors) and the whole system is just a real joy. I added a Cambridge Audio CXNv2 DAC to run my digital library through using Roon music service and Tidal and it plays real well together. Everything was suggested by Crutchfield's excellent sales staff and they were right on the money. I say go for it. I'd be shocked if you didn't fall in love with it.

Hi Calvin - I have the Cambridge receiver connected to 40+ y/o ElectroVoice Interface speakers (had the woofers & passive radiators rebuilt not long ago) in my den - now playing Paul Desmond streaming from Spotify w/ the loudness level set at -46 dB producing a moderately soft sound - cannot imagine you having an issue in a small apartment.

Hello, I use this amp on ten year old Klipsch speakers that are considered power hungry. The richness and tonality is consistent at two and ten.
[ Joel  Oct 20, 2020 ]
A
I returned ours because it was a bit to warm for our liking. We ended up with a Musical Fidelity M6si - great sound, lots of power and none of that wireless crap. Pure 2 channel bliss. But if you are in a small apartment perhaps the Musical Fidelity M3si might suit you. Unfortunately, Crutchfield doesn't sell Musical Fidelity.

A
Yes, it has a switch on the back panel.
[ JAMES B.  Nov 06, 2020 ]
A
I think so. On the back panel there is a mains switch allowing operation at 110 or 220V. You'll likely need a different power cord depending on where you're going to use it.

Q
Can I switch the 220v volt selector botton by my own to 220v if I'm ordering the device from U.S ?
[ Sharon  Oct 15, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
We do not research this aspect of the unit to know the exact process involved in switching to 220V as we only ship to U.S. addresses. As Nigel indicated, the manual lists its only for serving the unit and does not cover how to change it. I recommend contacting Cambridge Audio's support by calling 877-357-8204 to check on the process and make sure it does not void the warranty
[ Paul  Nov 11, 2020 ]  Staff

Can I pair the bluetooth to 2 separate bluetooth speakers?
[ flatiron  Sep 14, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
I was also curious about the BT features of my Cambridge AXR100 and sent their support team an email - basically, the BT in the receiver is built to only receive, e.g. input from another device such as a phone or iPad - their response below - hope this helps. Dave "The bluetooth on the AXR100 is designed to receive and not send. This means it cannot connect to wireless headphones or wireless speakers but it can connect to your phone or tablet and play any audio from your device. If you were to have a Spotify or other music subscription or want to watch Netflix on your phone you could have the audio coming from the AXR100 and its connected speakers."
[ G  Sep 18, 2020 ]
A
No. it's not that kind of bluetooth. just input and from only one device at a time..

I tried to pair my new AXR100 with my iphone. I was able to create the pairing but it only enabled headphone operation not speakers. Can you advise?
[ Michael  Aug 09, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
You should be able blue tooth to the receiver with your iphone and have both speaker and headphone functions. If the speaker function is not working and the speakers are on, sounds like you might have a receiver issue. If you haven't already done so, I would log in to Cambridge Audio tech support and request their assistance. I had a separate issue with my receiver and tech support was very helpful. Hope this helps.

How this compare to TOPAZ SR20, seems as on paper specifications looks same apart of added Bluetooth. Is there any improvement in sound quality?
[ Polaris  May 07, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
On paper it seems about the same other than (as you mentioned) Bluetooth, but also a more current DAC. (I think I read somewhere it was a Cirrus chip, instead of a Wolfson one in the Topaz, but now I can't find that anywhere.) Either way it'd be a newer DAC.

How do you adjust bass and treble I didn't see any knobs?
[ Bob  Apr 23, 2020 ]

Hello, thanks for reaching out James. I am not a technical expert but, in all my electronic experience when you decrease the ohms from 8 to 6 a natural 20% reduction should be expected. Hope this helps.

Well, there are auxiliary inputs and two optical inputs that I use for my CD player and TV and also a phono input, not sure what kind of outputs XM radio or Echo have but really I use Bluetooth. I have an app on my smartphone for my jazz station which I can pair and also I have a laptop in my office room and one in my music studio that I can Bluetooth my music upstairs to my home stereo.

Q
Is the housing and front made from plastic or metal? What about the volume dial?
[ Simen  Oct 20, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
The housing is made of heavy sheet metal. The top and sides are matte black. The front housing appears to be made of a similar or perhaps slightly thicker gauge metal (I didn't take apart to measure), with the edges rolled back so it looks at a glance like a thick plate. The front is finished in a slightly metallic silver paint. The volume dial is cast plastic, painted in the same metallic as the front panel. Dial has a good feel and in my opinion it doesn't feel "cheap," but it also doesn't have the "luxe" feel you'd expect with say a machined piece of stainless steel you might find on more expensive amps.
[ Jay  Oct 21, 2019 ]
A
The faceplate is brushed aluminum but the dial is plastic.
[ William  Oct 20, 2019 ]

The front is metal. Not sure about the volume knob but it is the most solid volume knob I have ever had. This unit is well worth the money.

Q
Can you bi amp speakers?
[ Will  Aug 24, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
this receiver is not capable of 'bi-amping' speakers. It can run two sets of speakers, however.
[ Calvin  Sep 17, 2019 ]  Staff
A
Not sure if I understand the question but there is a "Bi-Wire" connection available if your speakers have two sets of terminals. Bi-Wiring sends the bass and treble down separate cables for clearer sound. Hope that answers your question.
[ Robert  Sep 16, 2019 ]
A
in order to biamp speakers you must have two sets of terminals on the back of the speaker. One for the woofers and the other for the set of tweeters. this is because you have a crossover Network that sends the speaker through these different components come on. also most of the speakers on the market today are of 8 ohm impedance. once you buy amp a set of speakers you dropped the impedance down to four or possibly 2 ohms. you have to pretty much have a high-powered amplifier to even do this. I'm not saying some possible but you really have to have somebody who knows what they're doing to set this up. Personally I wouldn't think of doing it. The sound quality it's not worth the difference for all the hassle to do it. I had a friend who tried this years ago and he was not happy with the results. Then you have the expense of having to buy two amplifiers. Hope that helps. Have a good day!

on some set of speakers you can. Most of these speakers will have two sets of Jax on the back. If you don't see them you cannot do it. the reason is you have crossover networks between woofers mid-range speakers and tweeters. You are so have to watch the impedance level other speakers. Most speakers today or 8 ohms. once you buy amp to speakers it may drop down to four or even two ohms.
