Originally launched exclusively in Germany to celebrate its 30th anniversary, AVM has revealed plans to introduce its AVM30 series into the UK via PMC UK Distribution. The entry-level range includes integrated pre and power amplifiers and a CD and media player and visitors to the Bristol Show got to see for themselves what it has to offer – see Show Report in the current issue.

Drawing on the heritage of the AVM A2, the new £2,750 A 30 integrated amplifier takes the
direct double-mono setup of its predecessor and adds additional functionality such as digital inputs, the latest version of Bluetooth and adjustment options for input sensitivity and sound control.

The PA 30 preamplifier boasts an MM and MC phono module, the same adjustment options and connectivity including digital S/PDIF optical, coaxial and USB inputs plus Bluetooth. Costing £1,800, it incorporates many of the circuit design features from the Ovation flagship preamp.

The £2,650 MP 30 is designed to playback “virtually all digital music signals”, whether it be via the built-in CD player, external network digital sources via DLNA and UPnP, directly connected digital sources or streaming services like Tidal or Qobuz. It can handle 24-bit/192kHz signals and is compatible with FLAC, AIFF, ALAC and WAV files. The £1,950 CD 30 CD player offers digital inputs, while the £3,250 CS 30 is an all-in-one streaming CD player.

The £3,200 MA 30 Class A/B mono power amp and £699 P 30 phono stage complete the range. The entire range is available to buy now and you can find out more about it here.
