I first ran into Malsch, Germany based AVM
(Audio Video Manufaktur) at last year's Munich Show (see report
). Pictured above is the all-in-one INSPIRATION CS 2.2 Compact Streaming CD-Receiver (€3990) that offers a 2x 165Watt/ch integrated amp, network player, USB DAC input, CD player, FM Tuner, and a MM/MC phono stage. The 24/192 capable player offers 4 line inputs, 1 phono input (MM & MC), 1 Pre Out, 1 Line Out, and 3 digital inputs (Coax S/PDIF, Toslink, asynchronous USB).
