"...What makes it special is the high level at which it reproduces music and movies -- something, I've found, that not all pre-pros can do. Usually it's the sound that suffers, but not with the D2v -- which helps make it one of the most appealing products on the market right now for anyone who wants to set up a great audio/video system with the least amount of fuss..."

"The LTX was outstanding in its resolution, colour accuracy, geometric perfection, absence of motion artifacts, and overall natural picture quality. What more could you ask of a video display device?"

"...Not ones to rest on their laurels, Anthem is at it again, this time tackling something new...HD projectors. You heard correctly: Anthem is now making HD projectors, and like all Anthem products before them, their new line of LCOS projectors are, well, brilliant."
Later in the review he went as far as to say... "I adore the LTX 500 and will not allow it to leave my home for I cannot fathom viewing anything, television or film, without it."

Brian Florian of hometheaterhifi.com reports the following on the AVM 50v "Anthem's AVM line of audio and video processors remains a solid, SOLID value, delivering top tier features and performance, deceptively so since although not priced cheap, are still in the mid-range when looking at the market and industry whole." "...there are precious few pieces of consumer audio/video equipment which are as safe a bet as the Anthems. In a phrase, “Buy with confidence”.

Chosen annually by panels representing more than 50 prominent photo, video, audio, home theater and mobile electronics magazines from 20 European countries, EISA-nominated products undergo detailed test evaluations, with the final list of nominated products debated in detail at EISA's Annual General Meeting (AGM), attended by Editors-in-Chief from all EISA member magazines.
In describing Anthem’s processing and amplification package, the EISA states:
“Hailing from Canada’s Paradigm stable, this massive AV processor/power amplifier combination offers decoding for all Dolby and DTS HD-audio formats while the modular amplifier platform is available in both two and five-channel variants, rates at a substantial 325W. Packed with useful features, the D2v processor offers no less than eight HDMI 1.3 inputs, two outputs, 10 S.PDIF digital inputs and a full 10 channels of balanced analog outputs.
The latest v.2 version also includes Dolby Volume together with a bespoke and powerful EQ system called Anthem Room Correction (ARC) developed from research conducted by the Canadian Research Council. This software is run on a PC hooked into the processor via RS232 connection. The sound of the combination is both massive in its architecture and riveting in its detail, a tour-de-force of musical and movie action to power the grandest of home theatre systems.”

Andrew Robinson reviewed the Statement P5 and had this to say "How good is the Statement P5 you ask? Well I've just about owned 'em all, Krell, Mark Levinson, McIntosh and beyond and I can tell you the Statement P5 can not only hang, it can in some cases embarrass some of the before mentioned competition."

"Consider this amplifier if: you want an amp characterized by a robust, full-bodied sound that is, at the same time, beautifully controlled, refined, open, and full of finesse. And man, is this thing ever powerful; you can wade into challenging sonic territory (yep, Gustav Mahler, we’re talking about you) that would make lesser amps fold up and collapse, secure in the knowledge that the Anthem Integrated 225 will back you up every step of the way."

Estimated FMV for the Anthem Statement D2v is $7,499. For more information, please visit www.anthemav.com.
Toronto, Ontario - March 2009 - Anthem, a leading manufacturer of high-end electronics for music, home theater and distributed audio systems, announces the availability of version two of its award-winning Statement D2 audio/video processor. The next-generation model enhances the unparalleled performance features found in its first iteration with significant upgrades.
As a pioneer in the troubleshooting and integration of HDMITM, Anthem knows better than most how to utilize these connections to their fullest. The Statement D2v is equipped with four additional HDMI 1.3c inputs (for a total of eight) and one additional HDMI 1.3c output (for a total of two), delivering unprecedented connection capabilities for a preamplifier/processor.
More connections are useful, of course, but performance is king. The Anthem Statement D2v delivers outstanding video enhancement courtesy of its updated VXP® digital image processor. This "latest-generation" processor offers professional-grade, fully-adaptive deinterlacing. Also included are adaptive 3D noise reduction, mosquito noise reduction, block artifact reduction, adaptive detail enhancement featuring sharpness and texture enhancement with overshoot control, and adaptive contrast enhancement. The D2v's powerful, multi-layered graphics engine allows for sophisticated on-screen display generation that is ideal for setup menus. All inputs and outputs offer Deep-Color support (36-bit).
Audio performance on the Statement D2v has been ramped up to meet the demands of emerging HD audio standards. Two dual-core digital signal processor (DSP) engines offer 800 MIPS (million instructions per second) of processing power to allow 7.1-channel decoding of Dolby® Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HDTM High-Resolution Audio and DTS-HDTM Master Audio. The Anthem Statement D2v also supports 24/192 PCM audio input, up to 7.1 channels.
Anthem's Room Correction System (ARCTM) is a standard feature on all Statement D2v preamplifier/processors. While equalizing frequency response in a room to achieve some generic (i.e., "flat") response is a common approach, it sounds unnatural because it assumes the listening room is anechoic and does not account for how a speaker sounds in a room. Anthem's true audiophile approach with ARC instead uses proprietary processing to compute each speaker's in-room frequency response and then computes a target frequency response for each to yield the optimal sound.
