The power to engineer your room with ARC

At Anthem, we like to take things one step further. Rather than just designing a processor, we want to engineer your room. With the most advanced implementation of our award-winning ARC: Genesis room correction, professional calibration of your system can be achieved with the click of a button while still offering advanced functionality to refine the sound to your personal taste. Surfaces such as windows, furnishings, and the geometry of the walls, floor, and ceiling add unwanted resonance and colouration. Anthem Room Correction measures each speaker’s output relative to the listening area, then through a series of calculations, adjusts its output. Not only does ARC correct peaks and dips in a speaker’s frequency response, but it also preserves the beneficial acoustic attributes of a room.

Music Streaming

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.

Apple AirPlay AVM 90 supports Apple AirPlay and AirPlay 2, letting the user stream audio content, plus songs stored on local networks, to any AirPlay-enabled device. In addition, AirPlay 2 adds support for multi device play so you can hear your music throughout the home.

Google Chromecast lets the user stream audio content from any Android device like a phone, tablet, or laptop to the AVM 90. If you can listen to it on your phone, it can be Cast to your processor.

Spotify AVM 90 supports Spotify Connect allowing you to turn your smartphone into a remote and allows you to play, pause, and stream content from Spotify.

Bluetooth AVM 90 supports Bluetooth to stream songs stored on devices like phones, tablets, and laptops.

Roon (coming soon) AVM 90 supports Roon allowing you to connect, stream and manage your music collection. Roon tells your music what to do and where to do it.

Complexity, Simplified

At Anthem, our goal is to shape how you interact with your technology, so we went the extra mile to ensure no detail is overlooked while providing the utmost flexibility when it comes to device setup. Using a phone, tablet or laptop, owners can easily access any function or setting and make changes on the fly. Power the primary or secondary zone on and off, adjust volume, change audio modes, tweak channel trims and more, for a perfect surround sound experience. You’re in control, and it’s never been easier.

Limitless Possibilities

Today’s premium home theatres need support for as many as 15 speakers and four subwoofers to handle the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-oriented audio codecs. Pair the 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. The AVM 90 Processor can manage configurations up to 15.4 channels (up from 11.2) with ARC Genesis Room Correction ensuring the best possible sound at every seat.
