The AVM philosophy

Pure joy of Listening! For more than 20 years people at AVM are developing and manufacturing electronic equipment for highest-quality music reproduction. We believe that any kind of music - regardless if classical, jazz or pop music - has been composed to bring joy and emotions to the listener. Technical equipment such as amplifiers and loudspeakers must try to transport these joy and emotions into the living room. - That means simply reproduce the information stored on tape, disc, hard disc or broadcasted by radio stations.

This is in fact not as simple as it sounds. We are aware that every electronic and mechanical equipment leaves it's individual "fingerprint" on the reproduced music signal. When engineering hi-fi components we try to keep these "fingerprints" as inaudible as possible - and the inevitable rest as musical as possible.

Before starting the design of electronic circuits or constructing mechanical parts we always question: What is the work to be done by this certain component and how can we consequently realize this in an optimal way. We strongly believe that the method of try and error seldom leads to good sounding hi-fi equipment. Therefore we do not develop unnecessarily complicated circuits which need a lot of compensating components in order to function correctly.

We prefer a straight circuit design where every component has it's own clearly defined task and found that often the most simple circuit concept works the best. And: a part which is not there cannot influence the music and on the other hand: it doesn't produce costs and can never be defective. Hi-fi components are not only technical things but primarily a part of our customer's home. So we always attach importance to a worthy and beautiful appearance. Besides that we try to make all our components easy to use and last but not least we make effort to offer best value for money to our customers.

In order to realize this philosophy we manufacture all AVM components in our own plant and have the whole know-how in house. For the few parts (such as pc-boards, front panels, transformers) that we cannot produce by ourselves we have reliable suppliers nearby, who are working with us for years. This ensures the constant high quality of our products and – if needed - a quick service to our customers.

If you have questions or need more information, do not hesitate to contact us. You will get in touch with people who share with you the enthusiasm for good music, who really know about the products and feel responsible for their customers.
