AV Processor 15.4

Demand Excellence, Demand Anthem

Introducing AVM 90. Our most sophisticated audio-video processor. Every aspect of its design was scrutinized, every component carefully considered and reconsidered. It’s the culmination of everything we know and unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Meet our embodiment of excellence, meet AVM 90.

Elevate. Refine. Enhance.

Setting the standard for over 20 years, we knew that it would take something extraordinary to push the boundaries of performance even further. So every aspect of the AVM 90’s design was scrutinized, every component carefully considered and reconsidered. With AVM 90, it’s not about a single component or single feature; it is about the totality of our design—everything working together in perfect harmony to deliver a performance that genuinely transcends the listening experience.

We start with an oversized high-efficiency toroidal power supply, isolating the high power signals from the sensitive audio pathway. The critical conversion from digital to analog utilizes the highest performance ESS Sabre DACs for all 19 channels of processing. Compared to traditional voltage source circuits, these current source designs are a dramatic step forward in performance and complexity compared to conventional voltage source circuits.

But reference DACs aren’t enough; we know the entire signal path needed to be upgraded to match. Ultra-low noise, ultra-low distortion high output op-amps were carefully selected, and superior 0.1% high precision resistors were used to reduce distortion further and ensure gain consistency between channels. The best linear regulators were selected to provide low noise reference supplies to the premium audio converters and back-end circuits. As the complexity and density increased, it became necessary to implement premium high-layer count circuit boards with additional isolating ground planes. This allowed our engineers the freedom to ensure every channel has a unique, low cross-talk and pristine signal path.

We didn’t stop there. To ensure a bit-perfect experience, we’ve included the most advanced implementation of our award-winning ARC: Genesis Room Correction technology and an all-new DSP platform featuring a 32-bit floating-point audio data path with a 64-bit floating-point computation and double-precision filter states. With ARC: Genesis, professional calibration of your system can be achieved with the click of a button while still offering advanced functionality to further refine the sound to your personal taste.

After experiencing the AVM 90 for the first time, we knew that we had exceeded every expectation. Rendering audio with such vividness, such stunning clarity, you’ll want to reach out and touch it.

SMART Engineering

At Anthem, we have a straightforward goal – to design, engineer and manufacture audio/video products that deliver exceptional performance and convenience at a reasonable price. We do this by spending thousands of hours selecting and testing components, carefully designing our own circuit topologies, and backing them with robust power supplies that ensure maximum long-term quality and reliability.

Balance, in Perfect Harmony

It’s not about a single component, single feature or piece of software; it is about the totality of our design—everything working together in perfect harmony to deliver a performance that genuinely transcends the listening experience.

Flexible Streaming options to meet your needs

The AVM 90 includes a robust set of streaming options that can pull your music in from local storage or from the Internet. Thanks to Anthem’s high-speed processing and premium digital-to-analog conversion using high-end DACs, sound quality can be every bit as good as dropping a CD into a dedicated disc player.

INTRODUCING ANTHEM WEB USER INTERFACE

Anthem Web User Interface is now built in to all MRX Receivers and AVM Processors. Using a phone, tablet or laptop, owners can easily access any function or setting and make changes on the fly. Power the main or second zone on and off, adjust volume, change audio modes or tweak channel trims for a perfect surround sound experience. Web UI can also be used to calibrate speaker delays and levels and configure network settings/control options. Source devices can be renamed, simplifying set up by enabling the elimination of unused inputs. Installers can import and export files to make remote management simple and convenient.

Integrate with Ease

At Anthem, we pride ourselves on playing nice with others, no matter the ask. As a result, we’ve made the Anthem AVM 90 the ultimate nerve center for any premium home theatre or media room by treating ease of integration as a top priority. The Anthem AVM 90 features RS232 Serial and IP control capabilities for easy customization and compatibility with common third-party integration solutions.

We achieve this with our team at the Paradigm/Anthem Research Center and their decades of combined experience.

 

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 amplifiers and you’ll hear sound that rivals the best commercial cinemas.

MCA’s 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.
