The ROTATION R 2.3 is taking advantage of the same technological basis invented and engineered for the larger ROTATION R 5.3 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 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.’

Thomas Schmidt / HiFi / 2018/12


‘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.’
