AVM Ovation SD 6.2 Pre-Amplifier

The new Ovation Line SD 6.2 heralds a completely new category of AVM components with streaming capabilities. The brand new SD components combine an analog pre-amp with 2 analog line inputs, DAC with DSD, Streaming Client, web radio and a high performance headphone amp all into one unit. We call them Streaming DAC or short: SD.
In the SD 6.2 we focus on pure solid state technology in all amplifier stages. This is technology is compiled into an OVATION Line cabinet size well known from our modular PA 8 pre-amplifier.
Since this SD unit may serve as full-blown pre-amp, combining them with our power amps SA 6.2, SA 8.2 or MA 8.2 is a logical consequence. Furthermore the SD 6.2 may as well be combined with active speakers.
With the new SD 6.2 so called computer audio comes to the OVATION Line. A completely new combination of analog preamplifier, streaming client, DAC with DSD and headphone amp creates a new category of digital sound center for listeners with a focus on digitally streamed music from different sources.
2 ESS 9018 K2M Sabre32 DACs per channel are being applied. This way even the digital domain the music signals are being processed in balanced mode. High precision clocks are being applied. The voltage regulators are separated for both DACs and the supply voltage is regulated twice. This decouples the DAC entirely from other parts of the digital circuitry. The AVM streaming engine allows countless formats to be processed and is upgradeable making it future proof for additional formats.
Like all AVM hi-fi components the SD 6.2 is carefully developed and assembled by our engineers in Malsch, Germany. Our vendors for housing and electronic parts reside all near-by. This proximity helps us to easily ensure and maintain superb quality level of the supplied parts for the AVM hi-fi components made of these.During the manufacturing process we perform repeatedly numerous tests to insure the absolute quality of our products. When the assembling is finished and the first inspection is done all units must pass a run in test in order to prove their reliability. After that a careful final inspection follows before packing & shipping. All this ensures creating a perfect product from AVM for our customers.
