Presenting the Aavik integrated amplifier 180 / 280 / 580

The Amplifier – your control and powerhouse
The Aavik amplifier receives the inputs from your individual Hi-Fi devices and transforms these signals into an authentic musical experience. Therefore, the architecture of the new Aavik amplifier boasts sophisticated high-end electronic components set in a state-of-the-art enclosure. Based on ample power supplies, the Aavik amplifier provides unprecedented dynamic speed, tight control and balanced stability, which creates persuasive and crystal clear soundstage images that reflect even finest sonic details.

Aavik UMAC™ amplifier – Unmatched Audio Control

At Aavik we utilize the patented UMAC™ amplifier technology. This technology was developed to avoid the design flaws of traditional switching amplifiers. UMAC technology primarily targets two areas of modulated amplifier design. Firstly, the PWM1) 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. 

1) PWM: Pulse-Width Modulation

Volume control – Affects the sonic experience

The Aavik line stage boasts a unique, inverted, virtual GND1) amplifier topology, which provides the highest stability. The feedback gets so powerful that it allows to damp the signal to a gain lower than 1. This preserves the full signal with the lowest S/N Ratio2) - no matter if you turn the volume up or down. This will provide your loudspeakers with a clear and distinct information flow to make even the finest details of timbral and textural nuances audible on an extremely quiet sound stage.

1) GND: Ground   2) S/N Ratio: Signal-to-Noise Ratio

SEPARATE UNITS

SEPARATE UNITS – NO COMPROMISE

The decision to build separate units reflects Aavik’s intent of space management without any sonic compromise. Allowing sufficient space for each segment has also influenced the integration of a high-grade power supply with a huge capacity and paved the way for an effective cooling design.
By separating the individual units and redesigning them in a totally isolated fashion, the Aavik series has gained in dynamic momentum and a more expansive sound.
