  • Listen to streams at the highest resolution and upsample your existing collection to up to 192kHz/24bit
  • Tube Line Stage adds a new dimension to your sound
  • Connect an external hard drive, listen to CDs, or connect to Spotify, Qobuz, or TIDAL for the largest collection of music in the world.

A long tradition of performance

AVM looks back on a decade-long tradition of developing All-in-One devices with a real high-end sound quality since the 1990s. A new high-performance generation of our EVOLUTION All-in-One CS devices was created based on the AVM X-Stream Engine®. With CS 5.3, stacks of audio equipment and overflowing cable clutter become a thing of the past. All modern connections are available, so that, for example, both a record player and a TV can be connected via HDMI ARC. In order to achieve our goal of constructing the best-sounding all-in-one devices on the world market, we borrowed from our flagship CS 8.3. The EVOLUTION CS devices now spark a aluminium precision housing without any visible screws that is only 43 cm wide and impress with a minimalist elegance and symmetrical design.

Modernized APP Control

The simplest, intuitively learnable operation as well as a clear and attractively designed user interface make managing even large music collections a child‘s play. This makes you want to go on journeys of discovery for new music on numerous streaming platforms. The supplied selection of Spotify, TIDAL Connect, QOBUZ, and HighResAudio can easily be expanded in the future. The AVM RC X APP is available for iOS (Apple) or Android-controlled devices.

The new AVM X-Stream Engine® can stream all high-resolution formats up to resolutions of 384/32, including DSD (256). This streaming engine is a complete AVM in-house development and is completely software based. It can therefore be updated online in a future-proof manner. An HDMI (ARC) interface is also on board, as is the modern Bluetooth 5.0 connection, further digital inputs and a USB A interface are standard. A completely newly developed high-performance phono input stage enables the connection of MM and MC systems. As a special feature, all adjustments to the selected pickup system can be selected directly and conveniently in the APP. This ensures perfect analog sound, especially in combination with our rotation turntables. Completely new are the digital outputs, the volume of which can now also be controlled if desired, as well as the signal-sensitive inputs that switch on the CS 3.3/5.3 as soon as a signal is fed to these inputs.

Digital Innovation

The digital section was completely renewed in the course of the entirely new development. This crucial part is based on the selected ESS9028 PRO Double-Quad DAC. Also a clear gain in terms of sound, which goes hand in hand with a large amount of new digital circuit designs, 4 DACs per channel work in parallel here. This effort benefits all digital sources in terms of sound quality, so that all high-resolution formats can be reproduced perfectly and as close as possible to the original.

Repeated, intensive quality controls during all production steps and a break-in period of several days for each individual device secure our promise of maximum reliability in the long term and we grant a transferable guarantee of 2 years, with online registration 2 additional years (Warranties may differ in territories).
