Push the Power of Audio Control

 

The revolutionary STR Preamplifier is a new type of audio component that gives you more control and more refinements, including more connection options and more advanced technology, in a single, easy-to-use component.  It combines the benefits of an advanced pre-amp with the power of a processor, as well as functions like leading-edge DAC, onboard Anthem Room Correction, customizable bass manager for mono or stereo sub outs, MM and MC phono inputs; far more features than the average preamplifier.  And count on Anthem's digital signal processing innovations to deliver a noticeably higher level of performance realism.  The new STR Preamplifier drives all of your entertainment options today, and tomorrow.
