    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Oh gotcha, sorry. So my subjective views are its more controlled in lower frequencies, surprisingly more sweet while also being more open in the treble and not quite as cozy in the midrange but sounds more lifelike in those regions. The soundstage is also deeper while not necessarily wider. I...

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    NAD uses a house power supply and buffer which I suppose could affect the sound compared to other entities using the Purifi modules, but how much is debatable. I guess most things HiFi are debatable now that I think of it haha. I don't have personal experience with the Anthem's but by nature...

    Review and Measurements of Bluesound NODE 2i Streamer

    For fun, @amirm are you interested in measuring the Node (130) running current firmware and having the ability to measure the USB output?

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    No wrong decision there.... I was using a Parasound A52+ for my 5 base channels and recently went to NAD C298 for my LR channels (I also playback all 2CH music via analog path as described above) and I really like the NAD. Dead quiet, tons of headroom, superior driver control all make for a very...

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Hey sorry it was out of town. I’ve been using Genesis for about 6 months and yes there has been continual improvement. Good question on Trinnov and Lyngdorf, though for me at some point the law of diminishing returns takes over. I’m not sure I could justify the added cost of those units. At some...

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Hey Sam, yes it has. You still have to level match them before running ARC using the Quick Measure feature (super easy), using the discrete sub outs (iow you don't need to sum them to one) ARC Beta auto adjusts for polarity, phase, level, crossovers and distance (time aligns). I used the room...

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    As far as wides go, sorta-kinda.... Its difficult to see in my photos but my seating area in that room isn't overly large and (I listen to more music than watch movies, etc) in many spatial music tracks the mix could sometimes sound a but artificial (REM Drive). In the AVM I set up another...

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Can you clarify a bit more? Sorry I am not quite understanding your response. Not that big a difference in processors?

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Thank you, lots of effort and planning has gone in to that space! Especially isolating wiring, 20A home runs, rack install…as all of you know. 5.2.4 (four ceiling speakers). Unfortunately there isn’t a good place for rear surround channels. I did have the 702 f/x speakers in the front wide...

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Beta, yes. I haven’t compared the 70 to the 90 and my journey is detailed above in a few prior posts. I’m not convinced the 90 would be any better for movies but possibly for spatial music and 2CH playback. If given the opportunity I’ll certainly jump at the opportunity to try one out! A few...

    Hey Sam, yes it’s pretty well treated. I don’t want to be presumptive but glad to include pics if you like.

    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    I can upload my ARC file from my home computer later (EDIT guess I have them at work too, I think this is my latest but not 100% sure) - attached) and at some point soon-ish I'll run single and combined REW measurements and provide them. I too was sorta waiting for firmware to officially be...
