Armed with fully balanced DA converters and amplification stages, the MP 3.2 shines both with its thrilling sound and charming musicality. Following a complex digital-analog conversion, all digital signals are passed on to our specially conceived AVM low-level gain stages. This unique approach is a borrowed concept from the AVM flagship preamplifier PA 8 of the OVATION Line and is enchanting with its transparent and touching reproduction of sound. Furthermore, no expense is shared when it comes to the field of DA conversion by providing two fully balanced DA conversion modules per channel. Both the MP 3.2 and MP 5.2 Media Player enables you to play back hi-res DSD audio files (DSD64, 2,8MHz). Not least, all XLR and cinch-outputs are entirely separate entities which can be operated at the same time.
Similar to the CD 3.2 the CD 5.2 is reduced to the max. Still it offers a large variety of connectivity. All functions are intuitively operable. The perfectly machined housing is built without visible screws and comes standard in silver or black. The traditional AVM chrome front is available as an option. Other customizations are available upon request. The RC 3 is always included.
The CD 5.2 offers connectivity in plenty: 2 x USB (1 x 192/24 asynchronous, 1 x 48/24), 2 x SPDIF coaxial, 2 x SPDIF opt. and one AES EBU digital input. The XLR- and cinch outputs use different drivers and may be operated simultaneous.
Cutting edge technology is applied for the signal processing thruout. Each channel sparks two DACs operated in balanced mono mode. This way the SNR is optimized to the theoretical maximum. The upsampling allows switching the output samplerate between 44.1 and 192 kHz and simultaneous allows the choice between two digital filter characteristics (sharp or smooth). With the upsampling circuit the master tact is regenerated completely and jitter is kept away from the DACs. The PureCD mechanism is spring mounted and completely capsuled.
