Product Description

Both the CS 8.3 and the CS 6.3 unify the award winning technologies of the AVM OVATION Line into a high performance All-in-One Audiophile Masterpiece. Also in respect of connectivity, the CS 8.3 & CS 6.3 offer a complete selection: All common streaming formats are supported and a CD mechanism based on the exclusive TEAC drive for AVM are on board. Furthermore, a large selection of analogue and digital connections is available.

Both the CS 6.3 and the CS 8.3 are close relatives and only differ in their remarkable power amps: In the CS 6.3 we focus on prestigious solid state technology in all amplifier stages, while the OVATION Tube Line Stage of the CS 8.3 creates a unique warm and natural sound reproduction. All details are being reproduced in an unheard neutrality and spaciousness. Relaxed and joyous listening sessions are our goal and both the CS 6.3 & 8.3 make this a reality with ease. All this is possible with all kind of selected music. The extremely powerful amplifiers  deliver up to 500 Watt per channel. All speakers in the market can be driven with ease overall volume levels.

In the CS 8.3 & CS 6.3, the modular design principle of the OVATION Line premieres in an All-in-One unit. I.e. the DAC is designed as an exchangeable module. Already today this Quad-DAC may process digital signals up to 384kHz/32bit and also DSD formats are being transformed into analogue music signals which are a perfect recreation of the original. The formats to store digital music is going to rapid advancements. In case, future formats with higher resolutions require new DACs, the CS 8.3 & CS 6.3 are prepared for this as the DAC module will be hardware upgradeable.

Like all other OVATION Line units, the CS 8.3 & CS 6.3 offer vast and versatile connectivity and control possibilities. In doing so, not only the common music streaming formats are being supported. Furthermore, digital inputs including an asynchronous USB-input and SPDIF inputs and outputs are available. Connected NAS or external hard drives may also be operated as well as USB jump drives. The software (firmware) of the streaming engine is easily online upgradeable online. This way future Formats and additional features may be implemented with an easy update.

Special attention was given to authentic and excellent CD reproduction. The acoustically shielded CD mechanism is mounted in the rigid OVATION Line housing to protect it from unwanted influences (vibrations etc.).

The CS 8.3 & CS 6.3 stand in the best AVM tradition and amazes with their ‘reduce-to-the-max’ design. The perfectly machined housing built of massive sheet aluminum is assembled without visible screws and bolts. A multi chamber layout of the housing protects the sensitive electronics from distracting influences which may deteriorate sound quality. Attention to detail is carefully exercised in every aspect. The chrome plated knobs are made of one single piece including their axels and are mounted in heavy duty ball bearings. Through the glass cover in the top plate of the CS 8.3, the glowing tubes are made visible and maybe observed while producing their glamorous sound texture.

As standard versions, the CS 8.3 & CS 6.3 are available in silver or black anodized polished aluminum. As an option a massive chrome front panel is available (upcharge). Also the chrome knobs for volume and input selection may be customized upon request.

During the manufacturing process we perform repeatedly numerous tests to insure the absolute quality of our products. When the assembling is finished and the first inspection is done all units must pass a run in test in order to prove their reliability. After that a careful final inspection follows before packing & shipping. All this ensures creating a perfect product from AVM for our customers.
