CS 8.2 Compact Streaming CD Receiver
The CS 8.2 BT unifies the award winning technologies of the AVM OVATION Line into a high performance All-in-One Audiophile Masterpiece. In respect of connectivity, the CS 8.2 offers a complete selection, as all common streaming formats are supported and a CD mechanism based on the exclusive TEAC drive for AVM are on board. Furthermore, a large selection of analogue and digital connections are available.
The CS 8.2 BT is a close relative to the CS 6.2 BT and only differs in their remarkable power amps: in the CS 6.2 BT we focus on prestigious solid state technology in all amplifier stages, while the OVATION Tube Line Stage of the CS 8.2 BT creates a unique warm and natural sound reproduction. All details are being reproduced in an unheard neutrality and spaciousness. Relaxed and joyous listening sessions are our goal and both the CS 6.2 BT & 8.2 BT make this a reality with ease. All this is possible with all kinds of selected music as the extremely powerful amplifiers deliver up to 500 Watts per channel.
In the CS 8.2 BT the modular design principle of the OVATION Line premieres in an all-in-one unit - the DAC is designed as an exchangeable module. This Quad-DAC can process digital signals up to 384kHz/32bit and transform DSD formats into analogue music signals, which are a perfect recreation of the original. The formats to store digital music are rapidly advancing and future formats with higher resolutions will require new DACs - the CS 8.2 BT is prepared for this as the DAC module hardware is upgradeable.
Like all other OVATION Line units, the CS 8.2 BT offers vast and versatile connectivity and control possibilities, such as common music streaming formats as well as digital inputs (like asynchronous USB and SPDIF inputs) and outputs. The CS 8.2 BT also allows you to operate connected NAS or external hard drives, as well as USB jump drives. The software (firmware) of the streaming engine is easily upgradeable online so that future formats and additional features may be implemented with an easy update.
The CS 8.2 BT stands in the best AVM tradition and amazes with its ‘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.
