EVOLUTION MP 5.3

The standout feature of the EVOLUTION MP 5.3 is its Tube Line Stage, which is located in the preamp section of this audio masterpiece. Equipped with AVM’s own specially-manufactured tubes, our engineers have created an entire new circuit for the latest EVOLUTION series that fully unleashes the tonal charm of AVM tubes. The AVM-exclusive circuit technology guarantees an impressively long lifespan for the tubes (about 20,000 hours), so you can revel in unparalleled sound quality for years to come. The EVOLUTION MP 5.3 also stands out visually from the MP 3.3 with its glass panel on the top of the case, giving you a glimpse into the inner workings of the tube stages as they bring your music to life.

EVOLUTION MP 3.3

The EVOLUTION MP 3.3 is a true powerhouse of high-end audio technology, working as a pure transistor device. Its connection and performance data match those of the EVOLUTION MP 5.3. The most obvious distinguishing feature is the closed, brushed aluminum case cover. This sleek design adds a touch of elegance to your audio setup while providing the same high-quality sound as the EVOLUTION MP 5.3.

Born from
the finest genes:
The sister devices
MP 3.3 and MP 5.3

For decades, AVM has specialized in creating powerful high-end players., and now, based on the AVM X-STREAM Engine®, a new generation of high-performance MP devices has emerged. The new RC X App completely controls the EVOLUTION MP 3.3/5.3 Media Player, which boasts numerous new features. These high-performance media players are capable of playing CDs and all streaming formats at the highest level of sound quality. They come equipped with all modern connections, allowing you to connect to your TV via HDMI ARC. To construct the most powerful media player in the world, AVM draws inspiration from its flagship device, the MP 8.3. The EVOLUTION MP Media Players now feature a precision housing, made of brushed aluminum, that’s only 43cm wide and with a minimalist and symmetrical design. AVM’s design principle, “Reduce to the Max,” is evident in the sleek and elegant design of these media players.

The main focus of the RC X App is to provide a completely modernized control system, making it incredibly easy to use and navigate, even for managing large music collections. The intuitive interface and sleek design make it a pleasure to discover new music on various streaming platforms. The included selection of Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, QOBUZ, and HighResAudio can be easily expanded in the future. The AVM RC X App is available for both iOS (Apple) and Android devices, providing you with flexibility and convenience.

The new AVM X-STREAM Engine® is a revolutionary addition to the MP 3.3 and MP 5.3, capable of streaming all high-resolution audio formats up to 384/32 resolutions, including DSD (256). This streaming engine is an AVM proprietary development, fully software-based, and can be easily updated online for future-proof performance. The MP 3.3 and MP 5.3 come equipped with an HDMI (ARC) interface and modern Bluetooth connectivity, as well as multiple digital inputs and a USB A interface as standard. The device also features new digital outputs that can now be volume-controlled on demand, and analog outputs (RCA & XLR) can also be volume-controlled, which is done in an entirely analog manner. The digital inputs can also be set to be signal-sensitive, so the MP 5.3 and MP 3.3 will turn on automatically when a signal is detected. These outputs can also deliver a volume-controlled digital signal, providing you with an unprecedented level of control over your listening experience.

The EVOLUTION MP 5.3 and MP 3.3 are audio marvels, offering a significant improvement over its predecessor in terms of sound quality. The digital section has been completely redesigned from the ground up, using the selected ESS9028 PRO Double-Quad DAC as the foundation. This level of engineering results in a significant improvement in sound quality, thanks to the use of 4 D/A converters per channel working in parallel. This extra effort translates to all digital sources being perfectly and naturally reproduced. A particularly exciting feature is the ability to select and adjust upsampling rates and filter characteristics via the app, right from the comfort of your listening seat.
