MCA 225 2 Channel Power Amplifier - Gen 2

To complement the NEW AVM 90 and AVM 70 A/V Processors, Anthem introduces the new MCA 525, 325, and 225 Generation 2 power amplifiers. Available in 5, 3, and 2-channel configurations, these new MCA amplifiers feature robust and efficient power and heavy-duty reliability. MCA Generation 2 power amplifiers provide especially low THD (total harmonic distortion) for a clean, pure sound and lower noise for a supremely quiet background.

 

Home theater separates rely on clean power to make their magic. Anthem’s MCA Power Amplifiers are available in 2, 3 and 5 channel configurations; and are a perfect match for the AVM 70 and AVM 90 A/V Processors both sonically and cosmetically. Anthem's Gen2 amplifiers bring improvements to internal power supplies and wiring to provide greater transparency with dynamically complex material. Background noise is almost completely eliminated thanks to a 120dB signal-to-noise ratio. Power ratings start at 225 watts into 8 Ohms and go up to 600 watts into 2 Ohms with perfect stability while driving the most demanding speaker loads. Advanced Load Monitoring ensures protection from clipping and maintains long-term performance and reliability. Our new modernized design integrates beautifully with our AVM AV Processors. With high current output and low distortion, you don’t just watch movies or listen to music, you experience them.

Audiophile Binding Posts

Custom-designed, oversized robust binding posts ensure full power delivery at all times. They’re easy to use and facilitate large speaker cable connectors.

Measured Performance

The Generation 2 MCA 525, MCA 325 and MCA 225, designed and built in Canada, are like no other amplifiers in the world: custom low-noise high-power toroidal transformers; high-current bipolar output transistors; high-quality filter capacitors; advanced power supply regulators; oversized aluminum heatsinks; custom-designed dual binding posts; and patented auto-on/off circuitry. Superior craftsmanship that is reflected in clean, clear, audiophile-quality sound from top to bottom of the frequency spectrum.

Stable As A Rock

Incredibly stable into difficult, low-impedance speaker loads, making these superb-sounding reliable performers in even the toughest circumstances.

Detachable Power Cord
