Part Time Audiophile Reviews New AVM A 6.2 ME


AVM A 6.2 ME Integrated AmplifierMy first impression of the sound of the AVM Ovation 6.2 ME was that it was instantly supplying me with information that had gone missing with that so-called “lost” feeling I had with my reference system. I felt that I was hearing more of the good—lots of detail, a smooth yet detailed presentation, a tight and controlled low bass. Suddenly my loudspeakers were coupling to the room in all the right ways.
The AVM Ovation was ideal because I felt it was very close to neutral, while at the same time giving me plenty of detail. It was difficult to fault the AVM Ovation 6.2 on any level. The bass was smooth and deep and refined, and the highs were extended and delicate.
The AVM Ovation conspired to reveal a depth of detail that’s rare—especially in an integrated that sells at such a reasonable price.
Finally, that headphone amp is good. So good, in fact, that if I owned the AVM Ovation 6.2 ME I probably wouldn’t need an outboard headphone amp.
I’ve always made plenty of criticisms about packing too much into one box, about the sonic compromises of shared power supplies and a chassis that doesn’t go far enough in reducing noise from one section to another. This is yet another example of an integrated amplifier that does a lot and does it all well.
There are no sonic compromises, at least in the context of this price point. That’s why I’m giving the AVM Ovation my Reviewer’s Choice award. I want to know and hear more from them.
