Anthem STR Preamplifier and Power Amplifier Review

The Anthem STR preamplifier and amplifier are every bit the statement 2-channel products that they are billed as. Individually, they are some of the very best sounding examples of their respective categories. Together, they comprise as seamless and powerful a playback chain as you are likely to find.

Anthem STR Stereo Preamplifier Reviewed

Simply put, it’s one of the best sounding two-channel preamplifiers I’ve ever heard. Beyond switching your audio inputs and controlling your audio system’s volume, it includes an absolutely top-notch DAC, a nifty phono stage, and one of our most favorite room correction solutions all in one sexy-ass component. Feature wise, it pushes the limits of what you can expect to find in the stereo preamp category.

Anthem STR Preamp and Power Amplifier Review

The STR preamp is perhaps one of the most flexible and diverse two-channel preamplifiers I've ever seen. It offers state-of-the-art performance in every mode of operation handling analog and digital sources with equal ease. The connection options the STR preamp offers are virtually limitless and the home theater bypass mode is a Godsend for those wanting to merge home theater and two-channel systems together in perfect harmony. The STR amplifier puts forth impressive power figures for an amplifier in such a reasonably sized package that is refreshingly manageable to transport. The system works seamlessly together to reproduce music with fidelity at the very highest level, especially if care is taken to set up ARC properly.

[YouTube] Anthem STR Preamp & Power Amplifier Overview

The Anthem STR Preamplifier and STR Power Amplifier represent the very best offerings from this well respected Canadian company. Designed and built in Canada, Anthem's goal was to get back to their roots in developing the very best two-channel experience and audiophile could have. The STR preamp comes armed with their ARC room correction and the STR amp boasts up to 800 watts/ch (2-ohms). We met up with Anthem's Joey Perfito at the Audioholics Showcase home to do an overview video of these products to give you an idea of what they are capable of with much more to come.
