The Cambridge Audio AXA25 (click on images for larger versions) is a two-channel integrated amplifier that’s rated with a power output of 25-watts per channel into 8Ω and has a frequency response of 10Hz to 30kHz (–3dB). Signal-to-noise ratio is greater than 82dB referenced to 0dBW. It has four analogue line level inputs (via RCA), plus a 3.5mm line-level input on the front panel so you can easily plug in a portable music player or a smart phone.
Cambridge Audio has included bass, treble and balance controls on the front panel, with the bass and treble controls offering a sensibly modest ±5.5dB of boost and attenuation along with proper shelving at 20Hz and 20kHz, so you don’t waste amplifier power or provide excessive power to your tweeters. The AX25 also has a USB output so you can charge your portable while it’s playing.
‘The AX Series pairs high quality with outstanding value for money and is the perfect way for the hi-fi curious to build their first stacking separates system,’ said Philip Sawyer, of Synergy AudioVisual, which distributes Cambridge Audio in Australia, ‘and at just $449, the entry-level AX25 is great value, and its lunar grey finish is total class.’
Taking design cues from Cambridge Audio’s award-winning Edge and CX ranges, the AX25 measures 83×430×340mm (HWD) and weighs 5.1kg.
