It looks good on paper and in the tests. Monoprice has an newer DAC and measures well and has a good warranty and minimalistic build. It does have a SMPS power supply where the Anthem has a torodial. Dirac Live Bass Control is not included, and you must buy your own calibration microphone, so...
This would be the main competitor list prices vary a few

It has a lot to do with what they are. The devil is in the details. All of the components matter when it comes to audio path. A DAC alone is not simple to implement. Each AV section is not impossbile to implement cleanly on its own. However add a single large power supply, video processing...
I don't know for sure, but I believe they did it for a reason. There are complex mathematics/processing required to take a digital or analog waveform in hardware or software and apply DSP correction to each channel regardless of the manufacture or room correction software. The DSP is also...
You have to use professional mode in Genesis and set the max correction from default of 5K to your desired setting in say profile 1 of 350hz or lower 200hz is the lowest.
You have to deduct about about 6db from each channel in the level setup in a second profile to get the level matched vs room...

Just not enough information. Is it just a lack of thorough testing? Why did the owner send it to a service center for testing before sending it here? How's this for a possible conclusion, dissatisfied consumer abusing free testing to escalate a customer satisfaction issue? Is shipping damage to...
I’m comfortable saying sound is subjective and when it comes to our differences in perception. What's funny to me how many look at these measurements in absolute terms when they shouldn’t always.
Someone commented earlier that they took this unit off their wish list based on this review since...
Thanks for the update. Interesting news. I hope there is a simple resolution to get to the bottom of this so you do not have to send it back for service.
Don't be discouraged by the review or SINAD etc., the AVM60 is an awesome unit and it has superior sound potential.
