Anthem STR Integrated Amplifier

Anthem STR Integrated Amplifier

Two-Channel Nirvana

The new feature-rich STR Integrated Amplifier marks the major re-entry of Anthem into the two-channel space. The revolutionary STR Integrated Amplifier features an entirely new platform and amplifier technology. Upping the “wow” factor for us is more power, more control, more connections, and the most advanced technology available in a single, easy-to-use component.

Anthem STR
ANTHEM STR Integrated Amplifier $4,499.00  Available in Black and Silver.

Designed, engineered, and Crafted in Canada, the STR Integrated Amplifier combines the benefits of an advanced preamp with the power of a massive amplifier and processor. It includes leading-edge DAC, onboard Anthem Room Correction (ARC™), customizable bass manager for mono or stereo sub outs, MM and MC phono inputs—far more than the average integrated amp.

And it includes new generations of many of Anthem’s award-winning digital signal processing innovations—delivering a noticeably higher level of audio performance realism.

STR Integrated Amplifier Rear

A major aspect of the STR Integrated amp is the Anthem’s renowned Anthem Room Correction (ARC™). With the inclusion of ARC, two-channel listeners are now able to optimize their listening experience and achieve the very best sound experience possible in their room with the ability to target specific frequencies based on ARC’s sophisticated room correction software.

The STR Integrated Amplifier is one of the few integrated amplifiers that can be fit into custom installation settings and controlled via high-end systems. The STR is priced at $4,499.

 

Pro-Ject Classic Turntable

Pro-Ject Classic Turntable

Pro-Ject celebrated the company’s 25th anniversary with the launch of a new turntable – The Classic. The turntable has a modern retro look and takes inspiration from the top turntable manufacturers of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. There are a number of parts specially made for the Classic including new adjustable feet and a brand new tonearm.

A classic look and innovative high-end technology

Pro-Ject’s two-plinth design helps isolate the sub-chassis and reduce interference between different parts of the deck. The design effectively decouples the motor from the turntable’s main bearing and tonearm.

Other design features targeted at improving sound quality include the use of a dual-platter – the main platter is machined using a special aluminum alloy and lined with special damping material.

The new purpose-built tonearm and bearing assembly result in ultra-low friction. As standard, the turntable comes fitted with an Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge, but various counterweights are available to support heavier cartridges.

The Classic is available in three finishes: Eucalyptus, Rosenut, and Walnut.

The Pro-Ject Classic is now on display and available to demo in our showroom. Come in and take it for a test drive.

We agree with all of the great reviews, the Revolution XT 8F are the best of the bunch.
