    Product Description

    Anthem AVM 60 11.2-ch Home Theater Preamp With Anthem MCA 525 5-Channel Power Amp

    Anthem AVM 60 11.2-ch Home Theater Preamp

    Supercharge your home theater

    With 11.2 channels of processing and balanced XLR preamp outputs, Anthem AVM 60 preamp/processor has all the right ingredients to fuel your home theater with pristine audiophile sound. Pair it with one of Anthem’s multichannel power amps, and prepare to be transported. 4K pass-through with support for HDR video, plus decoding for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X (DTS:X available via future firmware update) give you the most immersive viewing experience you can have outside of an actual movie theater. Premium digital-to-analog converters ensure audiophile-grade performance from CDs and Blu-rays, in stereo or surround sound. And a massive toroidal transformer means superior current delivery and low noise.

    Superior sound without obstacles

    Anthem’s advanced ARC (Anthem Room Correction) speaker calibration system is one of the best we’ve heard. It effectively tailors the Anthem AVM 60 sound to your space, correcting for problems caused by sound reflecting off of the walls, floor, ceiling, and furniture in your specific room. With the effects of these obstacles removed, your audio equipment delivers clearer, more natural sound.

    Run the included room correction software on your Windows PC, and measure multiple positions in your room with the included microphone. ARC takes advantage of your computer’s processing power for the best possible results, showing you detailed graphs of the response curve and correction applied to each speaker in your system. In our large training room, ARC was able to tame unruly “peaks and valleys” in the low frequencies, providing noticeably smoother, more detailed bass.

    Note: As of September 2016 you can download Anthem’s free ARC Mobile app for iOS. ARC Mobile lets you calibrate your system using the internal microphone of your iOS device or an optional calibrated mic that connects to your headphone jack for advanced room correction.

    DTS Play-Fi puts a world of wireless music at your fingertips

    Play-Fi gives you easy access to music stored on your computer, music servers, and mobile devices — including high-quality lossless files. You’ll also have access to popular subscription-based music services like TIDAL and Amazon, along with thousands of Internet radio stations. Download the Play-Fi app onto your Apple® or AndroidT mobile device to queue up songs, play and pause music, and control multiple Play-Fi speakers and components throughout your home. You can even mix and match Play-Fi devices from different brands.

    Music and video in different rooms

    The AVM 60 has preamp outputs for 11 channels, giving you flexible configuration options. You can connect nine speakers in your living room, and connect the two extra outputs to an additional amplifier to power a pair of speakers in a second room. That way, you can enjoy stereo music in Zone 2 while others watch a movie in the main room. A second HDMI output lets you watch the same video source on your main TV and a second screen. You can start a movie in the living room and finish it in a different room, or play the same content on two different TVs in the same room.

    Anthem MCA 525 5-Channel Power Amp

    The Anthem MCA 525, designed and Crafted in Canada, is like no other amplifiers in the world. Custom low noise high-power toroidal transformers, high-current bipolar output transistors, high-quality filter capacitors, advanced power supply regulators, oversized aluminum heatsinks, custom-designed dual binding posts, and patented auto-on/off circuitry. Superior craftsmanship that is reflected in clean, clear, audiophile-quality sound from top to bottom of the frequency spectrum.

    Anthem introduces the new MCA 525, 325 and 225 power amplifiers. Available in 5, 3 and 2-channel configurations, these new MCA amplifiers feature more robust and efficient power and heavy-duty reliability. The new MCA Series delivers lower THD (total harmonic distortion) for more clean, pure sound and lower noise for a supremely quiet background.

    An All New MCA Series

    What does it take to improve on perfection? Over 15 years of concentration. The distillation of endless hours of fundamental research. The willingness to rebuild from the ground up. And the focus on a single goal: Leadership through innovation and technology. Introducing the new generation of Anthem MCA Amplifiers, designed, engineered and manufactured in Canada!

    Completely Redesigned

    The new MCA series greatly reduces the use of internal cabling for a much smoother circuit path for pure, unobstructed audio performance. The use of low-flux toroidal transformers and improved input transistors provide a greater sense of transparency, even with dynamically complex material.

    We’ve also improved other performance benchmarks including power bandwidth and slew rate. With a signal-to-noise ratio of 120 dB, background noise is practically nonexistent, leaving you with just pure natural sound reproduction.

    Higher Power into More Demanding Loads

    Experience the immense dynamics of up to 600 clean Watts delivered into demanding 2-Ohm loads. Both power supply impedance and internal cabling inductance have been minimized to deliver a clear path for maximum power – even in the most demanding conditions. While previous 5-channel MCA amps used a single power supply for front left and right channels and another power supply of the centre and surround, the new MCA 525 shares its two power supply between all channels. The result is full bursts of power – instantly – without affecting channel separation.

    Next generation Advanced Load Monitoring Technology

    Exclusive ALM technology monitors internal temperature, current and voltage to ensure safe and uninterrupted longterm operation, all the while eliminating the need for internal fuses. ALM is not in the signal path, so it never gets in the way. Instead, ALM engages instantly, but only in the most extreme circumstances, to protect your amplifier (and speakers) from damage.

    This new generation ALM™ lowers the chance of a line fuse blowing during an over-current condition. Should a fault condition arise, unaffected channels continue to play and all-channel operation resumes automatically once conditions are back to normal. The LED on the front panel confirms status at all times.

    Engineered for Reliability

    The new generation of MCA Amplifiers uses of Anthem’s years of experience to “engineer out” common amplifier gremlins. Consequently, we’ve removed output relays, so the signal path has absolutely no moving parts. All parts, including the eight bipolar output transistors per channel, are run conservatively so they remain within their safe operating range. Power-on inrush current has been minimized to reduce line disturbances and stress on internal components. We’ve also upgraded internal connectors and increased mechanical strength.

    Green “Standby” Power Consumption

    In addition to the reduced inrush current, these new MCA Amplifiers only use between 1-2W in “standby” mode. As with all Anthem amplifiers, they can be switched on manually, via trigger, or by sensing an input signal. New, larger, more conductive audiophile binding posts have been added to maximize contact and maintain a firm grip on the speaker cable. If you’re in the market for cutting-edge audio component separates, Anthem’s new MCA Amplifiers balance the complex dynamics of today’s most demanding multi-channel media with the rare finesse required to satisfy the audiophile in you. MCA Amps provide an abundance of conservatively rated power into demanding low impedance loads, incredible reliability, and a new design aesthetic that matches our sleek AVM 60 Pre-Amplifier.

    Massive Toroidal Power Supplies

    MCA amplifiers deliver incredible dynamics thanks to massive “audiophile approved” conservatively rated power supplies designed with high rail voltages. Low flux toroidal power transformers ensure ultra quiet performance by minimizing stray magnetic field radiation. This provides the pure, clean, low-noise power that is needed to reproduce the full dynamics of home theater and the most complex and dynamic music recordings.

    Quality Components

    Anthem MCA amplifiers are designed, engineered, and completely Crafted in Canada. We take pride in using only the highest quality components for each one we hand-build.

    Audiophile Binding Posts

    Our own custom-designed, oversized robust binding posts ensure full power delivery at all times. They’re easy to use and facilitate large speaker cable connectors
