Demand Excellence, Demand Anthem

Introducing AVM 90. Our most sophisticated audio-video processor. Every aspect of its design was scrutinised, every component carefully considered and reconsidered. It's the culmination of everything we know and unlike anything you've ever heard. Meet our embodiment of excellence, meet AVM 90.

Anthem AVM 90 AV Processor

Anthem's Pursuit of Excellence

Setting the standard for over 20 years, we knew that it would take something extraordinary to push the boundaries of performance even further. So every aspect of the AVM 90's design was scrutinised, every component carefully considered and reconsidered. With AVM 90, it's not about a single component or single feature; it is about the totality of our design—everything working together in perfect harmony to deliver a performance that genuinely transcends the listening experience.

We start with an oversized high-efficiency toroidal power supply, isolating the high power signals from the sensitive audio pathway. The critical conversion from digital to analogue utilises the highest performance ESS Sabre DACs for all 19 channels of processing. Compared to traditional voltage source circuits, these current source designs are a dramatic step forward in performance and complexity compared to conventional voltage source circuits.

But reference DACs aren't enough; we know the entire signal path needed to be upgraded to match. Ultra-low noise, ultra-low distortion high output op-amps were carefully selected, and superior 0.1% high precision resistors were used to reduce distortion further and ensure gain consistency between channels. The best linear regulators were selected to provide low noise reference supplies to the premium audio converters and back-end circuits. As the complexity and density increased, it became necessary to implement premium high-layer count circuit boards with additional isolating ground planes. This allowed our engineers the freedom to ensure every channel has a unique, low cross-talk and pristine signal path.

We didn't stop there. To ensure a bit-perfect experience, we've included the most advanced implementation of our award-winning ARC: Genesis Room Correction technology and an all-new DSP platform featuring a 32-bit floating-point audio data path with a 64-bit floating-point computation and double-precision filter states. With ARC: Genesis, professional calibration of your system can be achieved with the click of a button while still offering advanced functionality to further refine the sound to your personal taste.

After experiencing the AVM 90 for the first time, we knew that we had exceeded every expectation. Rendering audio with such vividness, such stunning clarity, you'll want to reach out and touch it.

Anthem AVM 90 AV Processor

Integrating all of Today's Technologies Into a Single Component

Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos is an object-based surround format that allows content creators to place each sound exactly where they want it to go, creating a more realistic and immersive audio experience. No matter what you're listening to, Dolby Atmos adapts automatically to your device and system, so you'll get the highest quality experience.

DTS:X

DTS:X is the next-generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new audio experiences in immersion and interactivity.

DTS Virtual:X

DTS Virtual:X is an audio codec designed to provide sound with a sense of multi-dimensional space or of sound moving around you within an environment. Used in both cinemas and home theatre systems, DTS Virtual:X may sound complicated, but it can be understood as making a few speakers sound like many speakers.

IMAX Enhanced

IMAX ENHANCED is the only way to experience IMAX's signature picture, sound and scale in the home. IMAX Enhanced combines digitally remastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technologies with best-in-class consumer electronics products and streaming platforms.

Dolby Vision

Dolby Vision is a dynamic HDR format, similar to HDR 10+, supporting the highest peak brightness and bit depth available today. Optimised for every scene, this advanced HDR technology gives you excellent colour and contrast, in consistent quality.

HDR 10

HDR stands for high dynamic range. The aim is to recreate an image closer to that seen by the human eye or better recreate the original storyteller's vision. That often means balancing out light and dark areas or the range of colours, and not losing, for example, shadow detail because of a bright sky.

HDR 10+

Similar to HDR 10, HDR 10+ takes the benefits of HDR 10 and improves upon them. For example, it quadruples the maximum brightness to 4,000 nits, which thereby increases contrast. It also changes the way it handles information. With HDR 10, metadata that is fed by the content source is static, which means there is one set of values established for a whole piece of content, such as a movie. HDR 10+ makes this metadata dynamic, allowing it to change for each video frame. This means every frame is treated with its own set of colours, brightness, and contrast parameters, making for a more realistic-looking image.

HDMI 2.1

HDMI 2.1 allows for higher resolutions, higher frame rates and significantly more bandwidth (up to 48gbps). It allows you to take your home entertainment to the next level with features such as HDR10, HDR10+, ALLM, VRR, QMS, QFT support and much more.

HDCP 2.3

HDCP 2.3 or High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection is the encryption technology that was designed to prevent illegal copying of 4K Ultra HD content as it's transmitted via HDMI. HDCP 2.3 is the latest version. It provides the most secure digital handshake between a source, sync and repeater.

eARC

eARC or Enhanced Audio Return Channel allows digital audio data to be transferred solely via the HDMI cable. In that sense, the HDMI cable sends both visual and audio information back and forth between your TV and a Sound Bar or, in this case, the AVM 90.

HLG

HLG or Hybrid Log-Gamma is yet another HDR format developed with the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) and NHK, Japan's national broadcaster. HLG codes HDR and SDR information into a single signal, enabling HDR-compatible TVs to display an enhanced image.

VRR

VRR stands for Variable Refresh Rate, and it allows a TV to sync its refresh rate in real-time to the frame rate output by today's popular gaming consoles resulting in a smooth, 'tear' free experience.


ALLM

ALLM stands for Auto Low Latency Mode. When available, it automatically sets the display device to the lowest possible latency settings to improve the response time when playing even the most competitive games.

QFT

QFT stands for Quick Frame Transport (QFT), and it reduces latency for smoother no-lag gaming and real-time interactive virtual reality.

QMS

QMS stands for Quick Media Switching, and it eliminates A/V blackouts by using VRR technology to change frame rates, allowing instant changes from 24Hz to 60Hz frame rate and anywhere in-between. As a result, the viewer never sees blank screens and gets a seamless experience.

Four Sub Out

Four Independent sub outputs allow ARC Genesis to correct multiple subs individually for frequency response, time, and phase alignment.

Upgraded Audio Circuitry

AVM 90 uses the highest quality parts in the audio signal path in order to preserve even the most minute of details.

0.01% Resistors

For the most pristine signal delivery possible, extremely high tolerance resistors are used in the design.

6-Layer PCB

Premium high-layer count circuit boards with additional isolating ground planes provide design flexibility and deliver ultra-high-speed transfer rates.

32-Bit/768 kHz DAC

It is not possible to listen to a purely digital signal, at some point, it must be converted to analogue to be played back. Preserving all the information in the signal is of utmost importance, so these top-tier Digital to Analogue Converters (DACs) are used to ensure that nothing is lost during the inevitable transition from today's high bandwidth digital signals, to the sound you hear from your speakers.

Wi-Fi/Ethernet

Both Wired and Wireless connections are available so that AVM 90 can connect to your home network for software updates, IP control, and music streaming purposes.

IP and Serial Control

AVM 90 Features RS232 Serial and IP control capabilities for easy customisation and compatibility with third-party integration solutions.

Apple AirPlay

AVM 90 supports Apple AirPlay and AirPlay 2, letting the user stream audio content, plus songs stored on local networks, to any AirPlay-enabled device. In addition, AirPlay 2 adds support for multi device play so you can hear your music throughout the home.

Google Chromecast Audio

Google Chromecast, lets the user stream audio content from any Android device like a phone, tablet, or laptop to the AVM 90. If you can listen to it on your phone, it can be Cast to your processor.


Spotify Connect

Spotify Connect allows you to turn your smartphone into a remote and allows you to play, pause, and stream content from Spotify directly to your AVM 90.

Bluetooth

All AVM/MRX components support Bluetooth to stream songs stored on devices like phones, tablets, and laptops for maximum convenience.

Roon Ready (Coming Soon!)

Roon allows you to connect, stream and manage your music collection. Roon tells your music what to do and where to do it. Roon Ready means you can take full advantage of Roon's lossless audio capabilities.

Dual HDMI Outputs

Two 'mirrored' HDMI outputs allow AVM 90 to share the same video source to two different displays simultaneously.

Zone 2 HDMI Output

The Zone 2 HDMI output is a user-selectable video output that allows the same or a different source from the main zone to be output to another display.

Anthem Room Correction

Anthem Room Correction is an award-winning software package that takes real-world, in-room acoustic measurements and uses them to fine-tune and optimise your speakers and subwoofers so they sound the best they can in your unique environment.

TFT Display

AVM 90's adjustable brightness crystal clear front display easily shows you vital information at a glance.

Web UI

All MRX/AVM products have moved away from yore's 'clunky' on-screen interfaces to a modern, dynamic interface easily accessed on any computer, tablet or mobile device. This allows for easy setup, configuration and adjustment of all settings without interrupting the content on the screen. Truly a 'tweakers paradise!'
