Profi Opinion

"The AVM CS 5.3 is identical to my highly praised CS 3.3, except for the tube preamp. If you insist on harmonic distortion and warmth of a tube, you are a bit better off with the CS 5.3. Both CS 3.3 and 5.3 are real gems among the all-in-one devices for me."

Important notes:

Adjustable phono board via RC X app, assuming stable WiFi-.


The special feature of the CS 5.3 is its Tube Line Stage, which is located in the preamp section of the CS 5.3. Based on the tubes made especially for us, we have developed a tube stage that fully develops the tonalcharm of these AVM tubes. AVM’s proprietary circuit technology guarantees a long tube life (approximately 20,000 hours). The CS 5.3 also differs visually from the CS 3.3 due to the glass window in the Gehäuse. Through this darkened window, the tube stages can be easily observed.

Created from the best genes: The CS 5.3

AVM has a decades-long tradition of developing all-in-one devices with true high-end sound quality since the 1990s. Based on the AVM X-Stream Engine®, a new powerful generation of our EVOLUTION All-in-One CS devices has been created. Numerous innovations have been incorporated and the new RC X APP also fully controls the CS 5.3.

With these powerful all-in-one solutions, stacked audio devices and overflowing cable clutter are a thing of the past. All modern connections are present, so that both a turntable and a TV can be connected via HDMI ARC, for example. To achieve its goal of building the best-sounding all-in-one devices on the world market, AVM has borrowed from its flagship CS 8.3. A main focus was on a completely modernized APP control system.

Simple, intuitive operation and a clear and attractively designed user interface make managing even large music collections child’s play. This makes you want to explore new music on numerous streaming platforms. The included selection of Spotify, Tidal, Qobuz and HighResAudio can be easily expanded in the future. The AVM RC X APP is available for iOS (Apple) or Android controlled devices.

Modern and innovative

The new AVM X-Stream Engine® can stream all high-resolution formats up to 384/32, including DSD (256). This streaming engine is a complete AVM in-house development and completely software-based. It can thus be updated online in a future-proof manner. An HDMI (ARC) interface is on board as well as the modern Bluetooth connection, further digital inputs and a USB-A interface are standard. A completely new developed high performance phono input stage allows 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 provides perfect analog sound especially in combination with our rotary turntables. The digital outputs are completely new, and their volume can now be controlled if desired. The sound has also been improved enormously compared to the predecessor. The completely redesigned amplifier stages now deliver an impressive 350 watts of continuous power and can easily cope with any Speaker.

High quality

In the course of the complete redevelopment, the digital part was completely renewed. This crucial part is based on the selected ESS9028 PRO Double-Quad DAC. Also sonically a significant gain, which is accompanied by a variety of new digital circuit concepts, here 4 DACs per channel work in parallel.

This effort benefits all digital sources sonically, so that all high-resolution formats can be reproduced perfectly and as faithfully as possible. The EVOLUTION CS are available in the standard colors aluminum silver or black, and on request also as an elegant CELLINI version with chrome-plated and hand-polished front and chrome-plated knobs.

Like all AVM devices, the EVOLUTION CS is manufactured purely by hand in the Malsch factory. The vast majority of suppliers, e.g. for the precise case, are also located near the main plant. Repeated, intensive quality controls at all production steps and a run-in period of several days for each individual device ensure the promise of maximum reliability in the long term.
