cambridge audio AX R100 --- 550€

5 out of 5 stars  

Very nice for the price.

I bought the AXR100 to replace an old Yamaha receiver. They are paired with a pair of ELAC DBR62 speakers. The FM reception is great, I pick up stations that my old Carver tuner with a FM antenna in the attic has trouble receiving. I have used the Bluetooth to stream music from my phone and have no issues with it cutting out. I also stream music from Tidal with a Bluesound NODE 2i and the sound is full and has good imaging. I agree it is not as full of a sound as my CXA81 but very nice for a product in this price range.
I have no problems with fan noise, all the buttons function solidly and the overall build quality is very good. I would recommend the AXR100 to anyone looking for a solid receiver with a great sound that does not wear on you.

great value for the price

It drives my Definitive Technology – Demand 11 and the final result is spectacular.. I’m super happy with that product! The only issue that I hate a bit is very loud fan (louder than my 7yo PC) working almost constantly – so if you listen to your music in almost total silence and quietly be careful.

Simply superb.

I just wanted a decent amp / receiver that would play from Bluetooth, CD and Radio without overly complicated functions. This ticked every box until I heard it. And then it ticked even more. Simply brilliant.

Outstanding for what it cost.

My son took my older Topaz 20 (truly outstanding), so I bought this as probably an updated version. Clean am, solid DAC, bluetooth, high end look. It drives my Canton GLE 436.2 pedestal mount speakers cleanly, and brings out the bass.

Alles was man braucht…..

Habe mir den AXR100 vor einem Monat gekauft. Verarbeitung ist sehr gut. Klanglich sehr fein mit meinen HECO Standsautsprechern. Habe zusätzlich einen Phono-Vorverstärker angeschlossen, da der noch feiner auflöst. Bluetooth ist super, schade aber das kein DAB Radio verbaut ist. Würde ich unbedingt wieder kaufen und empfehle diesen Receiver uneingeschränkt, da er das ideale Gesamtpaket darstellt.
