"Transcendental Performance" - Chris Martens, The Perfect Vision on the Statement D2v & P5

Paired up, the Anthem Statement D2v & P5 earned high praise from Chris Martens of The Perfect Vision.  Enough so that this perfect pair made the "Recommended 2010" list.

"What makes the Anthem pair so appealing is that it addresses all aspects (not just some aspects) of A/V performance at once—sound quality, picture quality, room correction/EQ, massive power output, and overall flexibility and control. While some competing units cover some of these bases well, few offer the supremely well-balanced solution that the Anthem pair provides."

AVM 50v named one of "Best Stereo Gadgets 2010"

Gary Altunian of About.com discusses the "Five 'Must Have' Gadgets for the Stereo or Music Lover" this year.

"Building a top class system starts with the controller. Despite its complexity, the AVM 50v delivers the rich sound quality of the finest analog audio components, but with superb digital audio processing, video upscaling and control features and a plethora of useful system controls. It's one of the best audio components I've tested. The companion MCA 50 power amp is a robust powerhouse, and I'm sure I never tapped its full potential. The Anthem separates are among the best of the best in home entertainment components. Read my full review and learn why."

Anthem & Paradigm show off their Flagship Pieces in this Parisian themed Custom Home Theater

Award-winning Chicago Interior Designer John Cannon designed a home theater and entertainment zone with hints of an antique Parisian bar decorated with Art-Deco details. Incorporated in the 'zone' was a breathtaking home cinema with Anthem & Paradigm flagship installation by George Georgiou of Cinetec Audio Video Design Centers in Palos Hills, IL.

Filling the rack of this theater is Anthem Statement electronics including the award-winning D2v audio/video processor as well as P2 & P5 amplifiers. The rear of the room includes a curved wall which posed some serious acoustical challenges but Georgiou used the ARC Anthem room correction kit included with the D2v to tame the sound field.

Georgiou chose to deck out the theater in the Paradigm Reference Signature line because as he puts it...

"Paradigm has, at every price point, a speaker that competes with the best of the best in the world... so when I'm deciding which speaker we're going to use in a particular room, I look at the capabilities of each speaker in [Paradigm's] catalog and decide what's going to eb best for the project depending on a budget. With this room, we needed world-class performance, and so we went with S8. I don't know that there's a better speaker for the money."
At the front of the room Georgiou used a pair of S8's and a C5 center channel. However, at the rear of the room, Georgiou wanted to match the S8 & C5 sonically but he couldn't use traditional in-walls in the curved wall. "As good as the guys at Paradigm are, they don't make curved back boxes," he says. But Georgiou found the perfect solution using four Signature W5 speakers, a thing on-wall speaker.

Al Griffin of Sound+Vision Reviews the "Desirable" Anthem AVM 50v

Sound+Vision posted its full review of the Anthem AVM 50v preamp / processor, and it's a beauty or as Al Griffin put it... "desirable", earning the status of 2009: Sound & Vision Certified & Recommended

Al Griffin raved about the AVM 50v in his review saying that it "is a worthy successor to the company's AVM 50 preamp / processor, bringing a number of welcome audio features like the company's impressive ARC room-correction and built-in Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack decoding.  Video, too, gets a bump up with Anthem's addition of block and mosquito noise reduction."

At the end of his methodical review, Griffin concluded by saying  "I've often told friends and colleagues that if you're going to buy an A/V preamp/processor, Anthem is the brand to get.  After spending time with the company's new AVM 50v, it's clear that there's no reason at all for me to change my tune."

The Anthem AVM 50v made Sound & Vision's "Best of 2009" List!

Sound & Vision picked products for their annual "New Product Guide"... and we made the cut!

This upgraded version of Anthem's Master 50 pream/video processor comes loaded with audiophile-friendly features, including the Anthem Room Correction (ARC) system, which individually adjusts each speaker's frequency response to best fit a room. ARC takes multiple microphone samples from different positions in a room to define the best output for an entire listening area and not just a single sweet spot. The preamp can support up to 7.1 channels of 192-kHz PCM, and its dual-core audio DSP can decode both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Anthem & Paradigm Recognized by Many for a Show-Stopping Demo at CES 2010!

With an Anthem LTX 500v Projector, the all-new BLX 200 Blu-Ray Player, Anthem Statement D2v Processor, the A2 & A5 Amplifiers, Paradigm Reference S6's, ADP3's, a C5 and two of Paradigm's flagship Signature SUB 2's, turns out it wasn't just 3D demos that caused line-ups at CES... Anthem & Paradigm were recognized by multiple reviewers for our show-stopping demo... not to mention a few broken lightbulbs along the way! See below:

Piero Gabucci of Secrets of Home Theater said "There is no better place to start coverage of CES 2010 than in the Paradigm/Anthem room on the 30th floor of the Venetian Towers. Why? Their demo is unrivalled." Click here to read more!

Paradigm & Anthem were also awarded "Standout Demo" status from the SoundStage! Network, going as far as to say... "In an industry where a company often has a hard time getting one product genre right, the best can get it all right. Paradigm/Anthem seems to have accomplished that rare feat." Click here to see what else SoundStage! had to say about our demo!

Gary Altunian of About.com gave Paradigm & Anthem "Best Cinema Sound Demo" commenting that we "had the best theater demo with thundering deep bass". Click here to read more on Gary's thoughts.

Jerry Del Colliano of HomeTheaterReview.com and homeaudiovid.com named Paradigm & Anthem "The best sounding demo I heard at the show". But not only was Jerry impressed with the demo, he also mentioned overhearing (and agreeing) with whispering dealers that said "they thought this Paradigm system was as good as a few brands costing double or triple the money." Click here to read specifics on Jerry's thoughts about our equipment in the demo.

Home Theater's Shane Buettner writes that our demo "... almost shook the Venetian hotel to the ground." But more importantly goes on to say that "The versatility of this system was extraordinary, bringing me to my emotional knees with an evocative KD Lang concert performance before shattering that blissful calm with a bonecrusher (ok, hunter-killer) scene from Terminator Salvation..." Click here to check out the rest of Shane's review!

CES 2010 an Absolute Success for Anthem!

So we made it back from CES! What a fantastic show. Stay tuned for a collection of show reports to follow over the next few days... we have a lot to tell you about!

A very special thanks to Camaraon Ochs and the band for playing at our first ever Dealer and Press event! We'll post some video of her performance in case you missed it. It was absolutely incredible!
