In tandem with their new processors and amplifiers, Anthem introduces the MCA 225, a powerful amplifier designed to complement various audio systems, offering exceptional performance even with other brands. Crafted in Canada, the MCA 225 sets itself apart with a range of features that promise an unparalleled listening experience.

Key Features:

Custom Craftsmanship: The MCA 225 is meticulously crafted, featuring custom low-noise high-power toroidal transformers, high-current bipolar output transistors, quality filter capacitors, advanced power supply regulators, oversized aluminum heatsinks, custom-designed dual binding posts, and patented auto-on/off circuitry. This level of craftsmanship ensures clean, clear, and audiophile-quality sound across the frequency spectrum.

Reduced Internal Cabling: The MCA GEN 2 series represents a significant redesign with a focus on minimizing internal cabling, providing a smoother circuit path for unobstructed audio performance. The inclusion of low-flux toroidal transformers and improved input transistors contributes to a greater sense of transparency, especially with dynamically complex material.

Improved Performance Benchmarks: Anthem has enhanced various performance benchmarks, including power bandwidth and slew rate. With an impressive signal-to-noise ratio of 120 dB, background noise is practically eliminated, promising a pure and natural sound reproduction that captures every detail.

ALM™ Technology: The MCA 225 incorporates Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM™) technology, monitoring internal temperature, current, and voltage for safe and uninterrupted long-term operation. ALM™ eliminates the need for internal fuses and engages only under extreme circumstances to protect the amplifier and speakers. It operates outside the signal path, ensuring it never interferes with the audio quality.

Dynamic Power: MCA amplifiers deliver remarkable dynamics, thanks to conservatively rated power supplies with high rail voltages. The low flux toroidal power transformers contribute to ultra-quiet performance by minimizing stray magnetic field radiation. This design ensures the delivery of pure, clean, and low-noise power necessary for reproducing the full dynamics of home theater and complex music recordings.

The Anthem MCA 225 GEN 2 Power Amplifier is a testament to Anthem's commitment to audio excellence, providing a powerful and precise amplification solution that enhances any audio system.

Enhanced Sound Quality:
Achieves lower Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), resulting in cleaner and purer audio with reduced noise.

Redesigned for Excellence:
The system has been completely overhauled, enhancing audio performance and overall reliability.

Increased Current Output:
Delivers higher current output, minimizing distortion and preserving sound quality.

Aesthetic Compatibility:
Designed to match the appearance of the AVM 70 and 90 A/V Preamplifier-Processor for a cohesive look.

Rackmount Option:
A rackmount kit is available for purchase separately.

Advanced Load Monitoring:
Improved system for load monitoring.

Enhanced Component Design:
Features 8 bipolar output devices per channel, reducing stress on individual components.

Energy Efficiency:
Standby power consumption of less than 2 watts, minimizing energy use.
