      AX Series Remote Control

      Complete Control

      AXC35 comes with a remote control, so you can choose exactly what to listen to. Compatibility of AX Series remotes means that you only need one device handy for key commands. Alternatively, you can use the controls on the front of AXC35 to skip tracks and so on.

      Designed for Life

      As with the rest of the AX Series, AXC35 shares our house-style of Lunar Grey minimalist fascia, black steel cabinet and ‘floating’ base. This timeless look allows for an upgrade path through our range. A slim build, in the classic 430mm hi-fi width, also means that AXC35 can easily slot, and breathe new life, into a much-loved system.
