Anthem Cleans Up in Stereophile's 2013 Recommended Components!

Stereophile has published its 2013 Recommended Components and among the shining stars is, not one, not two, but three Anthem products have made the prestigious list! Stereophile determines its Recommended Components list like so:

"Components listed here have been formally reviewed in Stereophile and have been found to be among the best available in each of four or five quality classes. Whether a component is listed in Class A or Class E, we highly recommend its purchase."

Components are categorized from Class A to Class E. We've only provided definitions for Class A and Class B below, as these are the categories you'll find Anthem in this year...

Class A
"Best attainable sound for a component of its kind, almost without practical considerations; "the least musical compromise." A Class A system is one for which you don't have to make a leap of faith to believe that you're hearing the real thing."

Class B
"The next best thing to the very best sound reproduction; Class B components generally cost less than those in Class A, but most Class B components are still quite expensive."

So without further ado, here are Anthem's winning products...

Music Surround-Sound Components: Class A

Anthem Statement D2v 3D
"The latest enhancement of the Statement D2 audio/video processor is the Anthem Room Correction kit (ARC), which includes a calibration microphone and stand and all necessary software and cables. Its versatile controls allow the user to modify the recommended crossovers, insert a variable room-gain bump, and set the upper-frequency limit for corrections. With the ARC's settings in place, soundstages were wider and more open. "Using the optimized ARC Advanced settings elevated my system's performance to a new level," said Kal. The "honest immediacy" of ARC's v1.2.5 upgrade benefited movies and video."

Music Surround-Sound Components: ClassB

Anthem MRX 700 
"Made in China, the 90Wpc MRX 700 is Anthem's top-model audio/video receiver. It has all the requisite A/V connections, including USB and Ethernet inputs; is compatible with HD radio and iTunes tagging; comes with a complete Anthem Room Correction kit; and uses a large toroidal power transformer."

Two-Channel Power Amplifier Components: ClassB

Anthem Statement M1
"Despite its relatively slim proportions (19.25" W by 2.25" H by 18.75" D; 20 lbs), the class-D Statement M1 is rated to deliver a whopping 1000W into 8 ohms. An internal heat-pipe cooling system allows multiple M1s to be stacked without the need for cooling fans or heatsink fins. The tidy rear panel holds balanced and single-ended inputs, a balanced-output gain switch, various trigger options, and a single pair of output terminals."
