The prestigious manufacturer of electronics for High Fidelity and Home Cinema Anthem has just announced the release of the long-awaited AVM 90 A/V preamplifier/processorthe product of its class advanced and sophisticationor ever created by the Canadian firm and a perfect example of what a control center for home entertainment without compromise should be. During the development of the AVM 90, every aspect of its design was carefully scrutinized, while every key component was carefully considered, which is why Anthem considers this exclusive electronic not only the culmination of your knowledge but, in line with its philosophy, a product without parallel in terms of sound quality. As a result, the AVM 90 shines in each and every one of its facets, the first of which is a copy-protected video platform. HDCP 2.3 which includes 7 HDMI 2.1 inputs compatible 8K/60 Hz and 4K/120 Hz, 3 outputs with eARC and several exclusive circuits (ALLM, VRR, QMS and QFT), designed to optimize the user experience in music, movies and video games, to what needs to be added full compatibility with HDR, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision and IMAX Enhanced systems and a robust set of streaming options of music both from local mass storage devices and from the Internet.
On the other hand, thanks to the combination of powerful high speed processing tuned by Anthem and the use of D/A conversion chips Audiophile grade, the sound quality offered by the AVM 90 is on par with that provided by formats as demanding as SACD, DVD Audio or Blu-ray Disc. In the field of multichannel and multidimensional surround sound, it is worth highlighting the format support such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS: As could not be otherwise in a reference product signed by Anthem, also the analog circuitry The audio system is very careful both in terms of its topology and the components used. In this sense, the presence of a toroidal power transformer Oversized with separate power lines for circuits that handle higher power and those that work with especially sensitive signals. To this we must add the use of DAC’s from the reputed SABER range from ESS Technology accompanied by very low noise linear regulators, high precision resistors and printed circuit boards with separate ground isolation planes.
Another fundamental aspect of the AVM 90 is the sophisticated professional calibration system which incorporates, the ARC Genesis, which measures the sound pressure level of each speaker at the listening point and then adjusts it not only to correct peaks and dips in the corresponding frequency response curve, but also to achieve optimal adaptation of each system in the room where it is installed. Finally, let us point out that the new Anthem is compatible (the progressive incorporation of new functionalities is planned) Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast Audio, while it is prepared for integrate in all types of custom systems and be externally controlled either via RS232 serial port or via IP.
