The C and P 580 separates is Aavik’s flagship version. What marks out this premium series is their additional noise reduction control and the installation of switchless, optical LDR-based components. They generate a dramatically lower noise floor than conventionally used switches and relays. This allows to audibly unleash even the tiniest musical details onto an amazingly holistic sound stage.
What also elevates the Aavik 580 standalone series to a higher performance level is its inner chassis, which is made of solid copper. The effect of this is a further reduction in the hysteresis, which secures more energy and power to the music.
The new (optional) Aavik analog crossover is securing a precise timing to all the receiving components. This is extremely important to avoid an unnaturally harsh and compressed sound. The new Aavik crossover has been designed to either very precisely control a subwoofer or with the integrated low pass and high pass filter to control a 2.1 home theater system. Alternatively, Aavik’s new analog crossover can also function as analog room correction control.

Switchless Optical Input board – LDR based
The LDR (Light dependent resistor) is ultra quiet thanks to the switchless principle. The traditional switch arrays and relays are more noisy. They suppress subtle sound details and unnaturally colour the tone.
Separate Power supply
The separate power supply ensures sufficient power reserves. This adds more control and results in a larger dynamic headroom.
AAVIK’S NEW ANALOG CROSSOVER
The Aavik analog crossover secures a precise timing in the delivery of sound signals to the receiving components. This is essential to avoid a harsh and compressed sound. The new Aavik crossover has been designed to either very precisely control a subwoofer or with the integrated low pass and high pass filter to control a 2.1 home theater system. Alternatively, Aavik’s new analog crossover can function as analog room correction control.
Excellent and absolutely precise subwoofer control
Since the crossover is analog, there is no latency. The timing of the signal transfer to both the speakers and the subwoofer is absolutely precise. This results in an utmost pristine and authentic sound. Other conventional crossovers, such as DSP transport the signal through a digital circuit. This results in a latency of 15-20 msec. The effect of a failing precision in the timing of the signal transfer to the speakers, respectively the subwoofer, impairs an authentic audio reproduction, creates a compressed sound and adds a harsh tone to the music.
Control your home theater and your 2.1 audio setup
By using the low pass and high pass filter, the sound performance of your individual speakers can be optimized. When directing the low frequencies to the subwoofer, more energy to the main speakers will be released. To ensure an even volume of the speakers and the subwoofer, the gain on the high pass and the low pass filter can separately be controlled.
Analog Room Correction – prevent “Room Boom”, the annoying pressure resonance
Room correction is a matter of identifying and eliminating room resonance. The one specific resonance that creates an unpleasant and disturbing sound is a pressure resonance resulting from the given size of the room – subjectively, it feels like a “boom” emanating from the speakers. To eliminate this room specific resonance, the new Aavik amplifiers can adapt their audio performance and make allowances for any given room size. Both the low pass and high pass filter allow the listener to set the exact frequency progress around those low frequencies which cause this disturbing ‘Boom’ effect.
AAVIK C AND P-280 SERIES – PRE- AND POWER AMPLIFIER
This amplifier combo shares much of the sophisticated DNA from the flagship 580 series securing the unique sound quality of authentic music and evoke a sensation of emotional ease and deeply felt passion.
