Instant Ship AVM All-In-One CS 2.3 Streamer
An entire Hi-Fi system in one box! The AVM CS 2.3 is a single-box home audio solution with CD player, streamer, DAC, phono preamp, headphone output and power amplifier.
AVM’s CS 2.3 is a single-box solution good enough to separate you from your separates. The styling and build are clean and solid, with standard finishes in silver or black. You’re in charge, whether you use front panel controls or the RC X app for iOS or Android; the full-function RC 9 remote control with full color display is optional. One elegant unit contains everything you need for a high-quality music system.
AVM’s new X-Stream Engine brings you Spotify Connect, Tidal, Qobuz, and UPnP and Webradio sources. It’ll handle any hi-res format including DSD; as new formats develop, the unit can be updated online, ensuring that obsolescence is obsolete. Coax and optical digital inputs are provided, along with USB stick input and HiFi Bluetooth 4.2; all digital signals are processed by the built-in upsampling ESS Sabre DAC. It’s Roon Ready as well, allowing use of the Roon music management program.
Connectivity is via Ethernet, WiFi, Apple AirPlay 2---and you can use it whole-house, with AVM’s Multiroom and Party Sync capabilities.
The CS 2.3 includes a slot-loading TEAC Pure CD Drive, not a reworked DVD unit. It’s isolated from vibration and will play your discs flawlessly for decades to come. If you have a turntable, the built-in phono preamp works brilliantly with either a moving magnet or a moving coil cartridge; adjustable loading extracts the best sound from whatever cartridge you choose.
The CS 2.3’s amplification features a high performance preamplifier running in Class A, a proprietary power supply section with AVM capacitors and an ultra linear Class D power amp that efficiently cranks out 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms. The CS 2.3's amplifier will bring out the best from any loudspeakers. Tone and balance controls and a headphone jack allow you to season to taste.
You’ll see why Germany’s STEREO magazine rated the CS 2.3 “Sound Quality: 100%; Price/Performance: Outstanding”.
