Anthem Integrated 225 Amplifier Review - "Steel Fist in a Velvet Glove"

In what might be our favorite headline to a review ever, esteemed and Absolute Sound reviewer Chris Martens captures the essence of the Integrated 225 with the gripping statement comparing the amplifier to a "Steel Fist in a Velvet Glove."
In his conclusion, Martens offers this take:

"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."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
