Anthem Price Drop


Recommended Posts

Just a heads up regarding Anthem in OZ. With the change of distro in Australia it's looks like Anthem gear is close to parity with the rest of the world. Most of the new prices are about 20%-40% off the old Australian RRP. A couple of good examples.

Anthem D2v new RRP $9999

Anthem AVM 50V new RRP $6999

Anthem A5 5 x 225 new RRP $5799

If the Mods find this post a little spammy, delete away. :)

Thanks a lot for this information, Jason.

I am excited about the new RRP of the D2v Surround Pre-Amplifier/Processor. Last time I checked, it was $14,000.00-$16,000.00, so way above my budget but at this new RRP, it certainly is worth considering later this year (perhaps).

About bloody time! I was going to get one in Singapore on my way back from Europe but now no need - It is still about $1500 more than the SG price I had

I'm with you Dantan either the Anthem D2v or the Denon AVP-A1HD have always been on my radar but a little out of reach. The Anthem D2v was about $16,000 when I inquired about 1.5 years ago and the guy refused to move on it. $9999:00AUD is a bit more digestible. I don't know how good ARC Room Correction is vs Audyssey Pro though - that is a discussion for another time (I think there's something on AVS Forum about it).

Anthem D2v is a very nice Processor feature-wise though. It's very configurable.

A few months ago, I got a price e-mailed to me by the Australian distributor. I think that RRP was $15,999.00 and he would do it for $14,000.00 delivered to me in Perth - but that was still way above my budget. At an RRP of $9,999.00, I wonder how much better than that they could do it for. Certainly worth asking.

Good to see a change of distributor ;sorely needed :rolleyes: Was always curious as to the difference between the avm50v and the d2v2 statement as they have very similar features ;found this attached to a 50v review ;

the fundamental differences between the AVMs and Ds are dealt with in detail in my original review of the D1. In short: Ds have much more sophisticated DACs/reconstruction filter arrangement plus the full-time up-sampling which that requires (as well as bigger/better power supplies). Net result: marginally better sound (“sounds more analogue” is I think how I put it back then). Is it worth the difference in price? That’s something each must answer for themselves based on their income and what that “last little bit” is worth to them.

great news indeed, and the 50v looks awesome for the price, very tempting...

i notice they both list analogue direct mode and analogue volume control - i assume that means none of the dreaded A/D conversion of analogue inputs?

Just to inform you that the amplifiers come with the following warning in the manuals

Do not use rca compatible connectors that have a hollow cenere pin with a hole at the tip - inserting them into statement amplifiers rca jacks can cause internal damage

this means that alot of high end cables such as eti eichman can not be used .

Yes D they point it out on the anthem site as well ; its at least as good as the other rare models that have this . if it had a digital volume control an a/d conversion would be a given but it has 24/96 adc's if you want the b/m arc etc ;good to have the choice for sure :) The tmds de jitter system looks very interesting .. better than using the video masterclock ;)
