The Danish high-end audio brand Aavik has released their latest three series of amplifiers, digital-to-analogue converters (DACs), streamers, and phono stages (RIAAs).

For each of these series, Aavik uses Tesla coils, dither circuitry and anti-aerial resonance coils, premium technologies from their sister company, Ansuz Acoustics, to bring the noise level down and to secure an unconstrained signal flow.

Aavik release three new ranges, 180, 280 and 580 series

Amplifiers, DACs, Streamers And Phonostages

The amplifiers are equipped with the patented UMAC™ technology. This technology was developed to avoid the design flaws of traditional switching amplifiers. Aaavik told us more: “UMAC technology primarily targets two areas of modulated amplifier design. Firstly, the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) generation is produced with sine wave modulation rather than the more common triangle modulation. The benefit is that sine waves create far less high-frequency noise than triangles, no sharp corners, and thus require far less inductive filtering at the output. The lower inductance in the output gives the amplifiers a much better damping factor and thus a distinctly better speaker control. Secondly, the advanced dual mixed-mode feedback allows damping factors that are characteristic of only the very best linear amplifiers”.

Tech details of the new Aavik series

The DACs provide four different audio settings to better accommodate individual listening preferences. The streamers have six separate, low-noise, regulated power supplies to secure clarity and precision. The phono stages have an absolutely quiet input section.

Natural Composite Cabinets

For an authentic sound that is “warm, harmonious and powerful”, Aavik’s engineers tapped into the audio properties of a new, natural-based composite material for the cabinets. The shape of these cabinets is inspired by the design and construction of traditional music instruments.

All of units are housed in the same shape of cabinet. The inner chassis of the premium 580 series, Aavik’s reference series, is made of solid copper, which they say “delivers more energy and power to the music”.

Inside the Aavik 580

Aavik told us: “The Aavik 180 and 280 series are the junior series but share to a very large extent the DNA of the 580 series”.

Price

180 series: EUR 6.000,- per unit (the price is the same for all 4 units – Integrated amplifier; Streamer; DAC; Phono stage)

280 series: EUR 10.000,- per unit

580 series: EUR 20.000,- per unit
