Turntable with single motor belt drive · 9” AVM tone arm (gimbal-mounted) · Massive 37 mm HDF composite frame with aluminum cover · 33/45 RPM look forward servo control · Height-adjustable damper feet · Hinged acrylic dust cover (removable) · Dimmable & switchable platter light


The R 2.3 is an audiophile HiFi turntable with a specially designed AVM tonearm and blue platter light for real vinyl lovers.

The ROTATION R 2.3 is taking advantage of the same technological basis invented and engineered for the larger ROTATION record player model. The gimbal-mounted 9″ tone arm is a proprietary AVM arm and the belt drive a direct spin-off from the bigger ROTATION sibling. The R 2.3 utilizes a slightly thinner composite frame with aluminum cover and blue illuminated platter.

The first record players in the history of AVM are a contribution to the rebirth of the beloved vinyl record’s success.

Creating a purely analog source based on AVM’s in-house developments by meeting the highest demands was already a long-cherished dream and from the very beginning a matter for AVM owner & managing director Udo Besser. The development of these two purely handcrafted turntables was accompanied by new, more sophisticated and purely phono preamplifier: The compact P30 Phono Stage or the modular OVATION PH 8.3 Flagship Phono Stage. Simultaneously, AVM introduces upgrades already for all the renowned phono stages in various AVM products. Both the ROTATION R 2.3  and the ROTATION R 5.3 flagship model feature completely own tone arms exclusively designed by AVM.

How the press sees the R 2.3

“The late turntables debut of AVM with two bull’s-eyes: The R 2.3 and the R 5.3 convince visually, technically and sonically in every respect.”
HiFi Test, Germany
“Construction, measured data and sound of the R 2.3 are unimpeachable and catapult the brand from zero into the highest league of drive manufacturers.”
Stereoplay, Germany
“For all vinyl-savvy owners of an AVM system, the ROTATION R 2.3 is, if it weren’t for its big brother ROTATION R 5.3, a must-have anyway.”
Fairaudio, Germany
“The ROTATION R 2.3 is a sparkling clean drive – elegantly reduced in its design and highly stable in its audiophile character. The price of the R 2.3 is fair: For a reasonable amount of money, you get a clever and powerful sounding turntable that can easily compete with the best in its class.”
Lowbeats, Germany
