The special feature of the PAS 5.3 is its Tube Line Stage, which is located in the preamp section of the unit. Based on tubes specially manufactured for AVM, a completely new tube stage was developed for the current EVOLUTION series, which fully brings out the sonic charm of AVM tubes. Thanks to AVM’s proprietary circuit technology, a remarkably long tube life is guaranteed (approx. 20,000 hours).

The PAS 5.3 and PAS 3.3 come with an extensive selection of connections and combine them with the versatile streaming functions of the AVM X-STREAM Engine®. In addition, both devices have a sensational phono preamplifier, whose settings can even be controlled via the RC X app for iOS and Android.

The PAS 5.3 differs visually from the PAS 3.3 by the glass pane in the casing cover. Through this darkened window, the tube stages are nicely observable at work. The PAS 3.3 operates as a purely transistor-based device. All other connection and performance data correspond to those of PAS 5.3. The most obvious distinguishing feature is the closed, brushed aluminum case lid.

Born from the best genes: The sister devices PAS 3.3 and PAS 5.3

Ever since AVM was founded in 1986, AVM has specialized in high-end preamplifiers with great sound. Based on the AVM X-STREAM Engine®, the PAS 5.3 and PAS 3.3 represent a new high-performance generation in the AVM EVOLUTION all-in-one device category. Numerous innovations have been incorporated and also the new RC X app now completely controls the PAS 5.3 / 3.3. With these two high-end preamps, analog sources and especially connected vinyl treasures can be played at the highest sonic level in addition to all streaming formats. All modern connections are present, so a TV can be connected via HDMI ARC, for example.

In designing these preamplifiers, AVM set out to create the best-sounding preamplifiers in their class on the world market, drawing inspiration from the flagship PA 8.3 preamplifier. The EVOLUTION PAS units feature a screwless precision aluminum housing that is only 43 cm wide and a minimalist elegance in their symmetrical design. AVM’s motto “Reduce to the Max” is once again taken to the extreme here.

The main focus was on a completely modernized app control. Easy-to-learn, intuitive operation and a clear and attractively designed user interface make managing even large music collections a breeze. This makes you want to explore new music on numerous streaming platforms. The preloaded selection of streaming services like Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, QOBUZ can easily be expanded in the future. The AVM RC X app is available for iOS and Android.

The new AVM X-STREAM Engine® can stream all high-resolution formats, including DSD (256), up to 384/32 resolution. This streaming engine is AVM’s own development and is completely software-based, which allows online updates for future-proof use without any problems. The X-STREAM Engine® features an HDMI (ARC) interface as well as advanced Bluetooth connectivity. Additional digital inputs and a USB-A interface are also standard. Completely new are the digital outputs, which can now be volume-controlled if desired.

The analog outputs (RCA & XLR) can also be controlled in volume – this control is completely analog. Analog and digital inputs can be switched to signal activation. This allows the signal to automatically switch on the PAS 3.3/5.3 as soon as a signal is detected at the activated inputs. Balanced and unbalanced inputs and outputs round out the extensive connection options.

Even purely sonically, the PAS 5.3 and PAS 3.3 have made a huge gain by using the newly conceived circuit concepts. The digital section was rethought from the ground up as part of the redesign, as this all-important part is based on the select ESS9028 PRO double-quad DAC. In terms of sound, this is also a clear gain, which is accompanied by a large amount of circuitry: In the PAS 5.3 and PAS 3.3, 4 DA converters per channel work in parallel. This effort sonically benefits all digital sources, so that all high-resolution formats can be reproduced perfectly and faithfully.

The EVOLUTION PAS 5.3 and PAS 3.3 are available in the standard colors aluminum silver or black. An elegant CELLINI version with chrome-plated and hand-polished front is also available on request. Like all AVM EVOLUTION devices, the EVOLUTION PAS is manufactured purely by hand in the Malsch factory. The majority of suppliers, e.g. for the precise cabinet parts, are also located in the immediate vicinity of the AVM main plant. Repeated, intensive quality controls during all manufacturing steps and a break-in period of several days for each individual device ensure the promise of maximum reliability in the long term, and AVM provides a transferable warranty of 2 years, with 2 additional years for online registration.
