Few AV Preamplifier-Processors offer the innovation and performance found in the AVM 60, supporting Dolby Atmos & DTS:X immersive audio decoding, UHD Blu-ray and 4K60 through HDMI 2.0a with HDR, sporting a toroidal power supply, premium differential-output 32-bit D/A converters, and premium A/D converters with 106dB S/N ratio for the highest quality sound whether using digital or analogue sound sources.
All this comes with Anthem's award-winning Anthem Room Correction (ARC), and professional XLR balanced outputs (as well as RCA) to connect to any number of dedicated amplifiers downstream.
11.2 Pre-Amplifier Channels with ARC
Anthem Room Correction (ARC) quickly corrects the effects that reflective surfaces such as walls, floors and ceilings have on the sound going out from your loudspeakers. It's a proprietary digital signal processing software developed in-house at Anthem which works with a specially engineered calibration microphone and your PC to quickly and easily tune-up audio for your own listening space, to achieve reference listening room-quality performance in the home.
Conducted by Anthem engineers in conjunction with the National Research Council of Canada, the groundbreaking research that went into this program lets you perform the required measurements and computations of the correction filters using almost any IBM PC, Macintosh, iPhone or Android device. Whatever you choose, it offers detailed steps and configuration options for getting your system tuned right.
The provided measurement mic is substantial in size, weight and quality, and comes with its own calibration on the provided CD, and a sizable mic stand for optimal positioning.
