Amazing Design & Thorough Testing

We have a long-standing appreciation for Anthem because they design, engineer, and manufacture audio/video products that deliver premium performance and convenience at a reasonable price. They accomplish this by spending thousands of hours selecting and testing components, carefully designing their own circuit topologies, and backing them with robust power supplies that ensure maximum long-term quality and reliability. We achieve this with our Paradigm/Anthem Research Center team and leverage their decades of combined experience.

Anthem also has a new smartphone app, for unprecedented command over your network-enabled Anthem A/V Receiver, Processor, or Pre-amplifier. The Anthem Remote App uses a Wifi connection to simplify the configuration of supported Anthem devices. App-based controls include volume level, muting, input selection, power, listening modes, bass, treble, level trims, menu navigation, and Anthem Room Correction (ARC) control.\
