AVM Ovation CS 8.3 Black Ed. All-In-One Solution
February 6, 2023 §
It’s the successor to the CS 8.2 [HFN May ’17] and still employs Class D amplification from Pascal – a well-known supplier to pro audio brands, and recently featured in Dynaudio’s active Focus loudspeaker – next to an ESS-based DAC. The Pascal module is driven by a triode tube line/preamp stage in the CS 8.3, unlike the £12,950 Ovation CS 6.3, for example, which is solid-state throughout.
Shipped in its own bespoke flight case, the £15,950 Black Edition we have here takes the standard CS 8.3 model and gives it a discrete makeover with an exclusive finish and selected tubes. And no, although ‘Black Edition’ makes it sound like a limited offering, this flagship is here to stay.
