Product Description

Features & Specifications




Anthem MCA 225 Gen 2 Power Amplifier

The MCA 225 GEN 2 , designed and Crafted in Canada, is like no other amplifier in the world: custom low noise high-power toroidal transformer; high-current bipolar output transistor; high-quality filter capacitor; advanced power supply regulator; oversized aluminum heatsink; custom-designed dual binding post; 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.

Superb Value in Multichannel Amplifiers, delivering 225 continuous watts per channel into 8 ohms.

To complement the NEW AVM 90 and 70 A/V Processors, Anthem introduces the new MCA 225 GEN 2 power amplifier. Also available in 5 ( MCA 525 Gen 2 ) , and  3 ( MCA 335 Gen 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.

Limitless Possibilities

Today’s premium home theaters need support for as many as 15 speakers and 4 subwoofers to handle the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-oriented audio codecs. Pair an AVM 70 or AVM 90 A/V Processor with a stack of MCA 225 amplifiers and you’ll hear sound that rivals the best commercial cinemas.

MCA 225 scalability means you can purchase only the channels you need to power your vision of home entertainment. AVM Processors can now manage configurations up to 15.4 channels (up from 11.2) with ARC Genesis Room Correction ensuring the best possible sound at every seat. And you won’t need to hide your gear from view.

Anthem’s modernized design extends to every component in the MCA and AVM lines. All MCA power amps are Crafted in Canada.

Massive Toroidal Power

MCA 225 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.

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.
