The new generation of MCA Amplifiers uses of Anthem’s years of experience to “engineer out” common amplifier gremlins. Consequently, we’ve removed output relays, so the signal path has absolutely no moving parts. All parts, including the eight bipolar output transistors per channel, are run conservatively so they remain within their safe operating range. Power-on inrush current has been minimized to reduce line disturbances and stress on internal components. We’ve also upgraded internal connectors and increased mechanical strength.

In addition to the reduced inrush current, these new MCA Amplifiers only use between 1-2W in “standby” mode. As with all Anthem amplifiers, they can be switched on manually, via trigger, or by sensing an input signal. New, larger, more conductive audiophile binding posts have been added to maximize contact and maintain a firm grip on the speaker cable. If you’re in the market for cutting-edge audio component separates, Anthem’s new MCA Amplifiers balance the complex dynamics of today’s most demanding multi-channel media with the rare finesse required to satisfy the audiophile in you. MCA Amps provide an abundance of conservatively rated power into demanding low impedance loads, incredible reliability, and a new design aesthetic that matches our sleek AVM 60 Pre-Amplifier.
