AVM’s all-in-ones appeal to both hardcore audiophiles (who may be looking to downsize and move to something more manageable without unduly compromising the audio experience of their “trophy” systems), and modern urban dwellers living in smaller spaces, who still want and appreciate wonderful sound. Audiophile technology has come a long way, and AVM’s all-in-ones defy popular preconceptions by applying leading-edge technology and engineering to deliver systems with exceptional musical reproduction capabilities.
The CS 2.2 BT is the most-compact of AVM’s streaming CD receivers. Most popular streaming services are supported, including Qobuz, TIDAL, UPnP, and more. The Pure CD drive is isolated from shock and vibration. FM radio and Internet radio are both provided, along with a high-quality phono input. All digital inputs are upsampled to 192kHz/24bit, and processed through a dual DAC. Inputs include synchronous USB and SPDIF in/output; external drives and USB sticks are supported, as well. Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity is provided, along with two line inputs. The unit’s high-quality power amplifier delivers 100 watts/channel, ensuring compatibility with even hard-to-drive speakers. Control is by iOS or Android apps; a dedicated remote control is optional.
The 5.2 MkII is a full-sized 17” component, and includes all the features of the 2.2, and doubles the power output to 200 watts/channel, with two speaker outputs to provide multi-room capability. Streaming supports most popular services, including Qobuz, Tidal, UPnP, and more. The Pure CD drive provides distortion-free playback, and is isolated from vibration and shock.
A phono input accommodates either moving coil or moving magnet cartridges; both FM and internet radio are provided. Digital inputs, including synchronous USB and SPDIF, are upsampled to 192kHz/24 bit, and are processed by a dual DAC. USB sticks and external drives are supported, and Bluetooth 4.2 provides state-of-the-art connectivity, along with two line inputs. iOS and Android apps provide control of the unit, along with an optional remote control.
The CS 8.3 provides relaxed, world-class sound by way of a vacuum tube line stage and its 250 watts/channel power amplifier. There’s no shortage of features: the quad DAC processes PCM up to 384kHz/32 bits, as well as DSD 128; the Pure CD drive built exclusively for AVM by TEAC is isolated from outside shock; digital inputs include asynchronous USB and SPDIF in/out, with support provided for external drives and USB sticks.
The unit is Roon Ready, and supports Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and most popular streaming services including Qobuz, TIDAL, and UPnP.
