Oh Canada! Anthem stands proud in the Canadian Pavilion showcase at SSI Montreal Show

Last weekend's Salon Son & Image (SSI) Audio Show in Montreal was a success but this year the show included something a little bit different... a little bit patriotic! As all audio geeks know, Canada has a pretty spectacular reputation for housing some of the world's most respected audio companies (*cough* Anthem & Paradigm *cough*). To celebrate the success of Canadian audio brands, the Salon Son & Image organizers started the Canada Pavilion (Pavillon du Canada) to showcase these audio companies and their products. And included in the long list on display were a couple of consumer favourites from Anthem, which SoundStage! captured so beautifully below...

From left to right, Anthem's Statement D2v and M1 monaural amplifier

On display in the Anthem area of the showcase was Anthem's long-standing industry favourite, the Statement D2v pre-amplifier/processor and the all-new proprietary Statement M1 1000W monaural amplifier.

Also on display, was Anthem's sister company Paradigm, showing off their Reference Studio 20 v.5 bookshelf speaker in Rosenut, AMS-150R-30 Designer Series thin-bezel in-ceiling speaker, multiple awarding-winning Reference MilleniaOne satellites in White Gloss, Reference Seismic 110 subwoofer (a.k.a. "the bull dog"), SHIFT Series A2 powered speaker in Vermillion Red Gloss and the interior decorator's dream, MilleniaSub in Satin White.

How to Pick the Best Screen for Your Room

When installing your home theater or dedicated theater room, screen ratio, screen size and seating distance are all important factors to consider before starting construction... but how do you know the right combination? 

Well, thanks to the good folks at Screen Innovations, there is a very helpful online tool to determine just that! The SI Seating Distance Calculator is a simple two-step process that will help you determine the right screen size for your room. All you have to do is select the screen ratio from a drop down menu and then using a cool little drag feature (see image above) you pick your seating distance. Once you have done so, your screen size recommendations are listed by: THX Min Size, SMPTE size and THX Max Size.

How cool is that? Now you're ready to shop for the perfect screen.
