Designed to match, engineered for power.
New MCA multi-channel amplifiers are Crafted in Canada and perfectly match the new AVM 60 processor & MRX receivers.
To complement the NEW AVM 60 A/V Processor, Anthem introduces the new MCA 525, 325 and 225 power amplifiers. Available in 5, 3 and 2-channel configurations, these new MCA amplifiers feature more robust and efficient power and heavy-duty reliability. The new MCA Series delivers lower THD (total harmonic distortion) for more clean, pure sound and lower noise for a supremely quiet background.
Like all Anthem products the MCA 525, MCA 325 and MCA 225, designed and Crafted 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.
Audiophile Binding Posts
Our own custom-designed, oversized robust binding posts ensure full power delivery at all times. They're easy to use and facilitate large speaker cable connectors.
Stable As A Rock
Our amplifiers are incredibly stable into difficult, low-impedance speaker loads, making these superb-sounding dynamos reliable performers in even the toughest circumstances.
Detachable Power Cord
By including IEC detachable AC female sockets and high-power, high-quality 14-AWG AC cords, MCA amplifiers further demonstrate their high-end pedigree.
Massive Toroidal Power Supplies
MCA amplifiers deliver incredible dynamics thanks to massive "audiophile approved" conservatively rated power supplies designed with high rail voltages. Low flux toroidal power transformers ensure ultra quiet performance by minimizing stray magnetic field radiation. This provides the pure, clean, low-noise power that is needed to reproduce the full dynamics of home theater and the most complex and dynamic music recordings.
