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 a 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 MK2 and the ROTATION R 5.3 MK2 flagship model feature completely own tone arms exclusively designed by AVM.

How the press sees the ROTATION R 5.3 (MK2)

AVM Audio Magazine Weka Logo 91110103
“The R 5.3 is a dream come true. The manufacturing quality could hardly be better and more beautiful, and the tonearm must inspire every vinyl fan. All that remains is the question of the perfect pickup. Much is possible here – the R 5.3 sets no limits in its platform. Great AVM has fulfilled itself and us this dream.”

“The R 5.3 proves to be an audiophile attraction. The longer you listen to music with this turntable, the more natural its price becomes.”

AVM Audio Stereoplay Magazine Highlight Award Weka Logo 19110202
“With the R 5.3 CELLINI, AVM entirely takes the bun: Visually a dream and sonically an absolute top drive that stands up to any comparison. The opulent drive base and a top-class tonearm offer perfect working conditions for high-profile pickups. A superior turntable for real vinyl freaks, but also an uncomplicated drive for those who want to go right at the top.”
Stereoplay, Germany

“AVM immediately sets an example with its self-developed turntables debut. And not just because of the blue platter light. The R 5.3 is as elaborate as it is clevery designed and shines with smart detail solutions on top of that. The result is a decidedly developed, mature and in every way high-end sound. Congratulations!”
Stereo, Germany
AVM Audio The Absolute Sound Magazine US Logo 91110301
“The R 5.3 is a really good turntable in many ways. It is unusually compact, easy to set up and use, and provides excellent sound quality with a wide range of cartridges.It is relatively insensitive to placement and vibration, and is the kind of exercise in precision German engineering that seems likely to last as long as it is given even halfway-decent handling.”
