“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.”

Andreas Günther · Audio · 12/2018

Equipped with a specially designed AVM 10″ tonearm, the ROTATION R 5.3 features an Elipso Centric Belt Drive with zero tilting moment on the axle. The R 5.3 further sparks a cocktail of cleverly designed and well-built solutions combined with an aesthetically unique appearance where the blue lighted acrylic platter and the aluminum enforced composite frame are only the most striking details.

“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! ”

“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.”
