For more than 30 years AVM have been developing and manufacturing electronic equipment for highest-quality music reproduction. They are one of the leading companies in the world for all-in-one amplifier / streamer systems.

AVM are keenly aware that every piece of Hi-Fi equipment will leave it's individual "fingerprint" on the reproduced music signal. When engineering hi-fi components AVM try to keep these "fingerprints" as inaudible as possible. Keeping the sound as realistic and natural as possible.

Before starting the design of electronic circuits or constructing mechanical parts AVM always question: What is the work to be done by this certain component and how can we realise this in an optimal way. They strongly believe that the method of try and error seldom leads to good sounding hi-fi equipment. Therefore they do not develop unnecessarily complicated circuits which need a lot of compensating components in order to function correctly.

AVM prefer to use a straight circuit design where every component has it's own clearly defined task and found that often the most simple circuit concept works the best. And: a part which is not there cannot influence the music and on the other hand: it doesn't produce costs and can never be defective.

As you can probably tell AVM have a very ‘German’ approach to manufacture. They build products that will work excellently but also last for a long time. This is very important in audio as most people buying a high-end hifi system will be expecting to keep it for many years!
