AVM Ovation A 6.2 in the Test

AVM treats herself to a new power plant in the catalogue: the class of amplifier is leading the Ovation A 6.2. The draft acts outwardly almost Spartan. Inside: power satellite, which shows the compact only too happy. Here our test.

The AVM Ovation A 6.2 is the child of many heads. The AVM strategists have belongs, what consumers want: a very powerful all-rounder in finest, purist packaging. Behind the beautiful front is a powerhouse. Available double 335 Watts into 4 Ohms.

The whole concept is structured so that there might be in fact no speaker in the world not masterfully drives this amp. He is descended from the large stereo power amplifier sat 8.2, the performance is however reduced by half.

Symmetrical design

If you look under the hood, discovered a beautiful, symmetrical structure, as it may not be more stringent. The two signal paths are in fact mirrored. In the class OFF construction with a MOSFET architecture in the high power amplifier. The twelve MOSFET transistors to provide maximum 180 amp per channel. This is lush. In this first appearance: this plant is not included in a simple cardboard box, but packaged in a massive flight case.

It is the details that show the power of the Interior also externally. There were for example the two knobs that not just simple plugs on AVM on the pots, but elaborately set up with ball bearings. If you want could be vertically this amp with its 22 kilos on the knobs, without that they would be damaged.

One more little thing: Instead of a reduced neglected headphone amplifier an another power station, a stand-alone, independent class A amplifier is located behind the 6.3 mm jack. If you want the true values behind the cliche of German craftsmanship, he finds them. Down to the last detail: about the traces on the printed circuit boards, pulls the AVM in especially thick pure copper tracks. The effort is part of the concept. Because as says the CEO Udo better: “The layout of the Board is the crucial part.”

The Board is important, if the current processing supported. There are four separate power supplies: one for the preliminary stage, two for the power amplifier and one for the processor unit. This is lush and a clear sign that this amp even at high loads not in the knee goes.

The entire work of art is created at the location. This is genuine “made in Germany” up to the boards, which can be pulled over AVM with black paint because this is to better dissipate the heat.

The enclosure itself compares AVM with a tank unit that will cool the A 6.2 on the one hand, on the other hand protects the components from the outside feedback. Whoever wants to can try also in bi-Amping. This, for example, the similarly built sat 6.2 could be consulted. Fine also dealing with options on the display. Here you can enable sound arrangements or a parametric loudness. All options per bypass can be bypassed via a more simple click. If you want, customize also the input sensitivity in the display or name the connected component. Not to forget: the heavy, perfectly processed remote from solid metal.

What brings this great effort? It was clear already after the first bars of our listening tests: this amp has no obvious limits. He was fast and very punchy. For example, when the drum attacks by Charly Antolini. That was pressure, the strokes on the bass drum conveyed an amazing punch.

Flexing muscles

The Ovation A 6.2 has muscles and apparently loves to present them. Thus an important characteristic of the character would be called. He is on the opposite side of the anemic, highly analytical murmur amplifier. Not that he couldn’t analysis, but it is always coupled with the beautiful thrust in the upper bass. The traction seems to be important the AVM developers. Brachial, Thunder like about the beats of the bass drum in Georg Soltis recording of Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem (Decca) in the pit of your stomach. Wonderful also, like Luciano Pavarotti in the same recording his “Ingemisco” right on. Da florist metal shine of his voice with the finest precision from the axis of the boxes. And once again grip: was there to listen, not thin Tenorstimmchen Pavarotti in his whole force and sprawling body abundance – with good lungs, much pressure and with an amazing sense of the space figure behind him. Wonderful!

Feeling better at all? Do you need a combination of pre-and power amplifier in the face of this potency, longer to gain a few more cubic space? We have experimented and add asked some pros / end constellations for comparison. The sound profit was minimal. Maybe here and there some strapping in the bass, but not dark. Just the black levels of the Ovation A 6.2 fascinated. Such good TVs: ever Blacker of the background, the brilliant chances on contrast.

Ideal for long evenings of listening

The ovation that sounded: very quiet in idle, Flash and grasping, once a signal was never hard -. This amp is recommended also for long listening sessions.

Very strong also play of a complex instrument like a piano. Recently we have us no wish open: AVM combines the Ovation A 6.2 five RCA and two XLR inputs. There are also two preamp outputs (also in XLR and RCA) and a RCA fixed level output. If you want, could build a bi-amplified architecture with the amplifier sat 6.2. Impressively the performance data: active up to 1100 Watts in standby mode takes only 0.5 watt of A 6.2. collected recordings of Alfred Brendel on Philips set to. This is not just a cube with 114 CDs, but especially living sound philosophy. Often is fantasising about that a pianist on the keys can sing; No one does it better than Alfred Brendel. He strikes with felt hammers on strings; the piano is ranked in the Orchestra in the Group of percussion instruments. Brendel mastered the art to connect consequences of Note – If the amplifier and the membranes with melodic arches. This poetry is difficult, and it’s high art, just as stable as poetically to represent a sound event.

Ovation A 6.2 succeeded the AVM. That had breath and fixed tone, phrasing and solid grip. Great, like it with Brendel the Middle figure traced; as great as this amp in complex sound structures never lost the context to the bass registers. A very big one.

Perfect mix

Right fit also the equivalent? After all, AVM for this amp requires approximately 9000 euro. Since A 6.2 in a League with good flow and end – can play with combinations of ovation, you need no calculator to recognize the relations: the mix of perfect workmanship and audiophile values is not taken for granted. Here, the AVM strategists have created an ideal life.

Conclusion

This is pure – force and competes heavily with mature / end combinations. Above all the pressure is fascinating. Amazing sovereign in conjunction with critical speakers.
