INSPIRATION SD 2.2

Preamplifier with HiFi Streaming & DAC

AVM SD: A completely different animal

The new SD units herald a completely new category of AVM components with streaming capabilities. The brand new SD components combine an analogue preamplifier with two high-level inputs, DAC with DSD, streaming client prepared for TIDAL HiFI streaming service, web radio, and a high performance headphone amp all into one unit. That is why we simply refer to them as Streaming DAC or short: SD.

+++ Software update now available including TIDAL & QOBUZ support  +++

In the SD 2.2 and 3.2 we focus on pure solid state technology in all amplifier stages. While the SD 2.2 sits in a compact body of our INSPIRATION Linre, the SD 3.2 is compiled into a cabinet size well known from our EVOLUTION 3 series.

Since all SD units may serve as full-blown pre-amplifiers, combining them with our power amps such as the SA 2.2 (available in June 2015), SA 3.2, MA 3.2S is a logical consequence. Furthermore all SD models may as well be combined with active speakers.
