AVM's latest high-performance streaming integrated amplifier from their Inspiration range. AVM has developed compact all-in-one devices without compromising on sound since the 1990s. This new high-performance streaming integrated amplifier has been created with the AVM X-STREAM Engine® and all modern connections.
Available in these finishes: Aluminium Silver, Aluminium Black and Cellini Chrome
Numerous innovations have been incorporated and the new RC X App also completely controls the AS 2.3. Device towers and overflowing cable tangle become superfluous: All modern connections are available so that even a TV can be connected via HDMI ARC. To achieve AVM's goal of making the smallest integrated amplifier one of the best sounding on the world market, they have miniaturized proven sound technologies from their all-in-one flagship CS 8.3 and designed it into a narrow, screwless aluminum precision housing of only 34 cm.
The main focus was placed on a completely modernized app control: The AVM RC X app clearly offers all important functions. Simple, intuitive operation and a clear and nicely designed user interface make managing even large music collections a breeze. This makes you want to explore new music on numerous streaming platforms. The AVM RC X app is available for iOS (Apple) and Android devices.
The new AVM X-STREAM Engine® streams all high-resolution formats, including DSD (256). This streaming engine is a complete in-house development by AVM and is entirely software-based and can therefore be updated online in a future-proof manner. An HDMI (ARC) interface is also on board, as well as a modern Bluetooth 5.0 connection and other digital inputs, plus a USB-A interface as well. Special attention was paid to the high-performance phono input stage for MM and MC. This high-precision input stage was completely redesigned for installation in the compact AS 2.3. This ensures even better sound, especially in combination with the AVM ROTATION turntables. Completely new are the digital outputs, which can also be volume controlled. Via the HDMI ARC input, TV devices can also be easily connected and conveniently controlled.
The AS 2.3 has also made a huge leap in terms of pure sound quality. This is based on the use of a 140 W amplifier stage, which also powers hungry speakers effortlessly at all volumes. The completely new amplifier stages are based on the large CS 8.3 and have been optimized for use in the compact AS 2.3 cabinet.
The digital section of the AS 2.3 has been redesigned from scratch because this crucial part of the AS 2.3 is based specifically on decades of AVM development experience. A selected ESS from the new generation (9038 Q 2 M) is now used here as a digital/analog converter, which is also a clear sonic gain that benefits all digital sources and reproduces all high-resolution formats perfectly and faithfully.
The AS 2.3 is available in its standard finishes of aluminum silver or black, and on request also as an elegant CELLINI version with a chrome-plated and hand-polished front. Like all AVM Inspiration masterpieces, the AS 2.3 is manufactured purely by hand in the AVM Malsch factory. By far the largest part of the suppliers, e.g. for the precise housing parts, are also located in the immediate vicinity. You are welcome to watch this creative process in AVM's ‘Making-of’ video.
Repeated, intensive quality controls during all manufacturing steps and a break-in period of several days for each individual device ensure AVM's promise of maximum reliability in the long term.

“Absolutely love the speakers. The speakers do show of the recording. If however the recording is not well mixed it will show the listener as well that it was a bad recording. When they did a bond song together. However if you have a well recorded album like London Grammar or Faithless etc the music is not just fun but dynamic and entertaining. Totally recommend these speakers. ”
“I’m loving the minimalist design. The warmth and depth of sound this turntable achieves makes listening sessions bliss”
"Just upgraded my phono cartridge to the Linn Ekstatik. This is a truely amazing cartridge. Running on my Linn LP12 Klimax turntable. The amount of information extracted is incredible. Very detailed presentation even at reasonably low volume. I am sure that as the moreI use it the better it will get. A worthwhile upgrade. Thanks to all at The Real Music company"
“The quality and reproduction of my Lps lifted 10 fold, the sound is so pure, like listening a new Lp, I'm hearing things i haven't heard before.
