The CS 8.2 at a glance

Like all other OVATION Line units, the CS 8.2 BT & CS 6.2 BT offer vast and versatile connectivity and control possibilities. In doing so, not only the common music streaming formats are being supported. Furthermore, digital inputs including an asynchronous USB-input and SPDIF inputs and outputs are available. Connected NAS or external hard drives may also be operated as well as USB jump drives. The software (firmware) of the streaming engine is easily online upgradeable online. This way future Formats and additional features may be implemented with an easy update.

Special attention was given to authentic and excellent CD reproduction. The acoustically shielded CD mechanism is mounted in the rigid OVATION Line housing to protect it from unwanted influences (vibrations etc.).

The CS 8.2 BT & CS 6.2 BT stand in the best AVM tradition and amazes with their ‘reduce-to-the-max’ design. The perfectly machined housing built of massive sheet aluminum is assembled without visible screws and bolts. A multi chamber layout of the housing protects the sensitive electronics from distracting influences which may deteriorate sound quality. Attention to detail is carefully exercised in every aspect. The chrome plated knobs are made of one single piece including their axels and are mounted in heavy duty ball bearings. Through the glass cover in the top plate of the CS 8.2 BT, the glowing tubes are made visible and maybe observed while producing their glamourous sound texture.

As standard versions, the CS 8.2 BT & CS 6.2 BT are available in silver or black anodized polished aluminum. As an option a massive chrome front panel is available (upcharge). Also the chrome knobs for volume and input selection may be customized upon request.

During the manufacturing process we perform repeatedly numerous tests to insure the absolute quality of our products. When the assembling is finished and the first inspection is done all units must pass a run in test in order to prove their reliability. After that a careful final inspection follows before packing & shipping. All this ensures creating a perfect product from AVM for our customers.
