Anthem

Backed by over 20 years of home-grown, hands-on design and innovative audio engineering experience, Anthem products provide an unprecedented level of reliability and functionality; they deliver one of the industry’s highest performance-to-value equation.

One reason is their advanced proprietary technologies, like ARC (Anthem Room Correction), the industry’s leading audio optimizer. Pros love its accuracy, and casual listeners love the profound results of its easy interface. The non-invasive Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM) circuitry in their amplifiers constantly monitors temperature, current and voltage to ensure optimum long-term performance.

In addition, their unique input topology reduces distortion and improves linear response. Their independent power supply design, along with oversized, super-efficient heatsink designs, reinforces the bulletproof stability of Anthem products. In fact, they carefully select all of our internal components, many of which are engineered exclusively in-house at Anthem, like our hand-designed circuit boards and our huge, precision-wound toroidal transformers.

Incredibly, the point of all this high technology is to virtually vanish from the equation, effortlessly delivering pure audio with no trace of coloration or risk of distortion. Anthem products put you front and center with the performance, enjoying the best in two-channel audio or the impact of full-on home theater entertainment (and every variation in between).

What is Anthem Room Correction (ARC)?

Simply put, Anthem Room Correction quickly “corrects” the effects that reflective surfaces such as walls, floors and ceilings have on the sound radiating from a loudspeaker. Removing the effects of these obstacles allows your audio equipment to achieve a more natural sound in any room, as close to the lab standard as possible.


On a more complex level, ARC is a proprietary digital signal processing software that works with a specially-engineered calibration microphone and your PC to quickly and easily optimize audio for your unique listening space. Anthem engineers developed the ARC system while researching how to replicate the audio-lab standard of performance in non-lab environments. This groundbreaking research was conducted in conjunction with the National Research Council of Canada, the Canadian government’s research and technology organization.

AVM 60 – Audiophile-Friendly 11.2 Pre-Amplifier/Processor 

“With all the latest technology to support a modern 4K UHD HDR home theater, it lives up to the Anthem AVM legacy and offers exceptional functionality and performance for the consumer.”

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, 2017

 

Few A/V Preamplifier-Processors offer the innovation and performance found in the all new AVM 60. Features include Dolby Atmos & DTS:X immersive audio decoding, support for UHD Blu-ray and 4K60 through HDMI 2.0a with HDR. HDCP 2.2 and 18.2 Gbps are also included allowing switching for compatibility with the latest video formats.
Audiophile-friendly features include a toroidal power supply, premium differential-output D/A converters with 32-bit conversion and sampling rate optimized filters for hi-res sound. Premium A/D converters with 106 dB signal to noise ratio ensure the highest- quality sound when using analog sources.
DTS Play-Fi offers easy-to-use music playback from popular streaming services and locally networked sources, controlled through iOS, Android or PC apps.

 

MRX receiver range

The most economical ‘one-component’ route to home theater by including both A/V processor and amplification in one unit. A receiver selects the source, decodes the multichannel cinema surround-sound format, controls volume, performs room equalization, manages bass signals when a subwoofer is used, and sends video content to display device. They can be controlled by typical custom home integration controls. The Anthem MRX range of receiver models include video processing, video up-conversion, AM/FM tuner, secondary zone capabilities, and control of other devices through trigger and/or HDMI CEC. Simply pick the model that best suits your needs.

MRX 1120

11.2 Pre-Amp / 11 Amplifier Channel A/V receiver with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. 140 watts per channel

“The Anthem has proven to be a first-rate component capable of bringing out the best in the rest of my gear. ARC corrects the bass issues in my room while not making the sound any less clear. The soundstage was completely unified between the speakers and while watching Dolby Atmos content I was completely amazed how immersed in the audio I became. The Anthem MRX 1120 is a real reference quality receiver that can be the hub of any home theater. It makes the right choices in what features you need and leaves out the extra ones you will likely never use.” – Reference Home Theater, 2017
