Build your system as you please
We have come to realize that a lot of High-End users have a hard time respecting build-in DAC’s and phono stages, even if they are among the very best available. So, we have taken the consequences and are turning back to the more traditional way of building audio systems. But that is the only thing that is traditional about the new Aavik electronics.
Modular for stacking
The design on Aavik amplifiers matches the design of complementary Aavik units for an complete high-end music system eg the Aavik D/A converter, Phono stage and streamer. Fitting additional mechanical grounding is straight and simple if you stack the Aavik units, just keep in mind to place amplifier at the top (for best possible cooling). We still recommend to place each unit separate on a well grounded shelf for top performance.
Like an musical instrument
Shaping the cabinet, the use of aluminium has been drastically reduced to eliminate hystereses. Instead we have replaced the aluminium with a new naturally based composite material with a dense structure of different fibres and, among them wood fibres – all in all properties suited much better for the purpose. Besides that, the visual design is inspired by musical instruments with much less straight lines and surfaces.
Three quality levels
Aavik components comes in three quality levels; I-180, I-280 and I-580. In comparison the I-180 and I-280 differs in the amount of noise reducing technology used in the design. For the top model, I-580 you further more gets much mechanical improvements, such as the titanium cross embedded in the top of the amplifier and inside a massive copper chassis – expensive choices, but only the best will do for this quality level.
AAVIK 180-SERIES – NO HYSTERESIS
The Cabinets in the new series are build in natural-based composite materials, eliminating hysteresis almost completely.
- Aavik I-180 integrated amplifier. 2 x 300/600W @8/4Ω. Line inputs only.
- Aavik R-180 phono stage. MC inputs only.
- Aavik D-180 DAC. PCM & DSD
- Aavik S-180 Streamer + Aavik streaming App
THE AAVIK 280 SERIES – MORE TECHNOLOGY
The 280-series can be seen as the upgraded versions of the same components as the 180-series. Same exterior design but with a lot more technology inside. Just like it is with the Ansuz Mainz8’s.
- Aavik I-280 integrated amplifier. 2 x 300/600W @8/4Ω. Line inputs only.
- Aavik R-280 phono stage. MC inputs only.
- Aavik D-280 DAC. PCM & DSD
- Aavik S-280 Streamer + Aavik streaming App
AAVIK 580 SERIES, THAT’S WHERE WE GO ALL IN
Nearly no aluminum! Inside we use a chassis of pure copper. Outside we control resonances and vibrations with a Titanium strengthen natural based composite materials cabinet. Also, the Darkz feet and other mechanical parts are pure Titanium.
- Aavik I-580 integrated amplifier. 2 x 300/600W @8/4Ω. Line inputs only.
- Aavik R-580 phono stage. MC inputs only.
- Aavik D-580 DAC. PCM & DSD
- Aavik S-580 Streamer + Aavik streaming App
