The british Cambridge Audio (which has recently integrated Roon on readers network CXN V2 and EDGE NQ) has extended the range of AX with the tuner-amplifier stereo AXR100D with DAB radio tuner/FM. The product comes in a classic design, and size in the media for his class of membership. The measurements are 110 (h) x 430 (L) x 340 (W) mm.

The amplifier section delivers 100 W per channel on 8 ohm with a total harmonic distortion less than 0.01% (1kHz, 80% of rated output; less than 0.15% 20Hz – 20kHz, 80% of the rated power). The data sheet also shows a frequency response ranging between 5 Hz and 50 kHz (-1dB) and a signal/noise ratio greater than 82 dB.

On the front side are a headset jack to jack 6.3 mm and an analog input jack 3.5 mm. Other available connections include Bluetooth 5.0 (A2DP/AVRCP with support for SBC), two optical digital inputs and one coaxial, and three analog inputs on RCA, one phono MM (Moving Magnet), the output for a recorder, the output to connect a subwoofer and the connectors to connect two pairs of speakers.
