AVM have been developing and manufacturing high quality audio equipment for more than 30 years. All the design and development is done in-house and manufactured in their own German factory. The quality of musical reproduction was evident in our listening tests. A truly high-end sound using logical design principals and carefully selected components to achieve optimal performance levels. Unnecessarily complicated circuit designs are avoided, eliminating the need to use compensating components for them to function correctly. The result is less character imposed on the musical reproduction.
These cartridges work on a completely different principle to conventional MM or MC cartridges. Instead of a signal generated by electromagnetic force the optical cartridge uses a beam of light to detect the stylus motion. Removing the mass of magnets or coils, and by using tiny optical parts, the optical system resolves the smallest stylus motions with greater accuracy. Music is reproduced more correctly, nuances and the finest details revealed more easily. A sound amongst the best we have heard.
There is now a new entry model product called the DS E1 featuring an aluminium cantilever, an elliptical stylus and a compact equaliser.
This Norwegian electronics company has been around since the mid-1990s but in recent years has become better known in the higher end of the audio market. A very organic sound with little hifi artifice due to their unique SoundEngine technology which reduces noise and distortion. A focused range of products which includes five integrated amplifiers, all of which include high quality DACs, and two pre-power amplifier combinations. There is also a dedicated CD player that does nothing more than play CDs, a courageous move in today’s market where there is a trend towards computer files as sources.
