Anthem Room Correction

Your room has a bigger impact on the sound than any component in your system. Anthem's new ARC Genesis is an easy to use room correction system that gives your sound a huge improvement. ARC takes out all the big peaks to let you hear your home theater and music soundtracks the way the engineers intended.

15.2 Channels with High End DACs

Take object based surround to the next level with 15.2 channels of processing on board. The AVM70 steps up to higher end DACs coupled with a toroidal power transformer to give you amazing spatial separation. You get a full array of balanced or RCA outputs and 2 independent subwoofer outputs

Super Flexible

With 4 speaker and ARC presets for various listening situations, 30 virtual inputs, 15 channels of processing on board and discrete dual sub out the AVM70 delivers on great object based surround. Throw in a high performance phono preamp for the vinyl enthusiast and you have one heck of a great surround sound processor!

With the latest version of ARC Genesis Room Correction, a redesigned and more accurate calibration microphone, Anthem Web User Interface, an all-new electronics platform, and a new modernized design; the new AVM 70 and flagship AVM 90 A/V Processors bring all of today’s technologies into a single component. Object-oriented audio codecs have been updated with support for up to 15.4 channels; as well as built-in streaming support for Apple AirPlay2, Google Chromecast, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect (coming soon), and Roon (coming soon). Video support includes 7 HDMI 2.0 inputs with 2 outputs, plus eARC for seamless integration with smart TVs. Perfect passthrough of Ultra HD signals at up to 18.2 Gbps with Dolby Vision, HDR, or Hybrid Log-Gamma ensures the optimal presentation of your visual media.

The Anthem AVM70 gets an upgraded set of DACs over those used in the Anthem receivers. Coupled with the low noise toroidal transformer the AVM70 gives us a big improvement over the previous model. The DACs are AKM 24 bit/192kHz which is pretty impressive on its own.
