CS 5.3

The special feature of the CS 5.3 is its Tube Line Stage, which is located in the preamplifier section of the CS 5.3.  AVM have developed a tube stage that fully unfolds the tonal charm of these AVM tubes. Due to AVM‘s own circuit technology, the tubes are guaranteed to last for a long time (approx. 20,000 hours). The CS 5.3 also differs from the CS 3.3 in terms of appearance due to the glass window in the housing cover. The tube stages can be easily observed through this darkened window.

Created from the best genes: The sister devices CS 5.3 and CS 3.3

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 their EVOLUTION All-in-One CS devices was created based on the AVM X-Stream Engine®. Numerous innovations have been incorporated and the new RC X APP also controls CS 3.3 and CS 5.3 completely. With these high-performance All-in-One solutions, 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.  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.


A main focus was on a completely modernized APP control. The simplest, intuitively learnable operation as well as a clear and attractively designed user interface make managing even large music collections 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, Qobuz and High Res Audio 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 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.
