Anthem Statement A5
Like their larger and even more powerful siblings, A2 and A5 amplifiers are muscular in character and musical by nature. They are multi-talented performers more than capable of supplying the power behind the sonically demanding aspects of surround-sound home theater, or recreating, with remarkable finesse and transparency, the ‘immediacy’ of a live music performance. The secret behind their award-winning performance can be found in Anthem’s unwavering commitment to state-of-the-art design.
A2 and A5 amplifiers boast: completely modular construction; a four-layer circuit board topology; mirror-imaged, frequency-response channel matching; eight bipolar output devices per channel; hand-matched complementary input devices; massive toroidal power supplies; oversize convection-cooled aluminum heatsinks; and a no-fuse design strategy.
Transformer-induced noise at the bass frequencies of 60 Hz, 120 Hz, and 180 Hz has effectively been eliminated. As a result, A2 and A5 amplifiers boast vanishing noise and remarkably low levels of Total Harmonic Distortion. The reproduction of subtle harmonic structures in each of these powerful amplifiers reveals extraordinary spatial ambience and soundstage dimension.
Thanks to massive conservatively rated toroidal power supplies designed with high rail voltages, A2 and A5 multichannel amplifiers provide ultra quiet performance. Transformers are shaped to minimize stray electromagnetic radiation and tuned to minimize hum.
