Cambridge Audio AXA35 Integrated Amplifier
How to be a Budget Audiophile
The concept of the budget amp with audiophile pretention really took off in the 1980s when the NAD 3020 shocked the Hi-Fi world. Other models followed, including the Rotel RA-820 and Mission Cyrus One. By the 1990s low-cost CD players had truly taken off so the NADs and Rotels of the hi-fi world found themselves with partnering models. The budget HiFi system was born.

The AXA35 boasts 35 watts of power per channel, an integrated moving magnet phono stage for turntable enthusiasts, a white display screen, and a ¼ inch headphone socket for headphone listening sessions.
Pop the hood, and Inside you will find a Toroid transformer for high current just like more expensive amplifiers. Analog circuit design at this price level is hard to believe, as the competitors have gone all digital and lost their mojo - we think.
