The R 5.3 is an audiophile high end turntable with a specially designed AVM tonearm and an AVM Elipso Centric Belt Drive for real vinyl connoisseurs.
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.
The first record players in the history of AVM are a contribution to the rebirth of the beloved vinyl record’s success.
Creating a purely analog source based on AVM’s in-house developments by meeting the highest demands was already a long-cherished dream and from the very beginning a matter for AVM owner & managing director Udo Besser. The development of these two purely handcrafted turntables was accompanied by new, more sophisticated and purely phono preamplifier: The compact P30 Phono Stage or the modular Ovation PH 8.3 Flagship Phono Stage. Simultaneously, AVM introduces upgrades already for all the renowned phono stages in various AVM products. Both the Rotation R 2.3 and the ROTATION R 5.3 flagship model feature completely own tone arms exclusively designed by AVM.
