Product Description

Save with Anthem Summer Audio Visual OffersThe Anthem AVM60 is guaranteed to be on the shopping list of audiophiles who want great sound first, but with the latest in surround sound technology. If you've been hanging out for an alternative to the other brands we sell, then wait no more!


Few A/V Preamplifier-Processors offer the innovation and performance found in the all new AVM 60. Features include Dolby Atmos immersive audio decoding, future upgrade for DTS:X, support for UHD Blu-ray and 4K 60 through HDMI 2.0a with HDR. HDCP 2.2 and 18.2 Gbps are also included allowing switching for compatibility with the latest video formats.

Audiophile-friendly features include a toroidal power supply, premium differential-output D/A converters with 32-bit conversion and sampling rate optimized filters for hi-res sound. Premium A/D converters with 106 dB signal to noise ratio ensure the highest- quality sound when using analog sources.

DTS Play-Fi offers easy-to-use music playback from popular streaming services and locally networked sources, controlled through iOS, Android or PC apps.

Dolby Atmos: It's new and will be a winner because with Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill your home theatre with astonishing clarity, power, detail and depth of sound. The AVM60 has the processing power to run a more enveloping 7, 9 or 11* channel Dolby Atmos system using 5.2.2, 5.2.4, 7.2.2, 7.2.4, 9.2.2 or 11.2.2* configurations utilising ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.. Here's how it can be configured.

  • A 5.2.2 or 5.2.4 speaker configuration is based upon a traditional 5.2 speaker layout complemented by 2 or 4 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
  • A 7.2.2 or 7.2.4 configuration is based on a 7.2 speaker layout with either 2 or 4 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
  • A 9.2.2 configuration is based on a 9.2 speaker layout with 2 overhead speakers.

Anthem Room Correction

And then there's Anthem room correction (ARC)! Even when the finest speakers are perfectly positioned, the room itself still has a dramatic impact on a system’s sound, an impact more profound than that of any individual component. Various 'electronic' solutions have fallen in and out of favour over the years, but none has solved the problem of “the room.” Until Anthem ARC that is.

Using proprietary processes and the power of your PC the ARC system, years in development and included with your Anthem AVM60, analyzes each speaker’s in-room sound and then computes the required correction to yield optimal performance from every speaker. It’s a process that takes less than five minutes! Anthem’s approach is a true audiophile solution to the problems of the room. ARC is garnering rave reviews across the industry. For more information, see the ARC data sheet in the downloads & support section of the Anthem website.

However, although ARC is definitely the best 'electronic' room correction system currently on the market, it can only do so much. A bad sonic environment is still a bad sonic environment! ARC will make it as good as it can electronically, but additional room treatments will make almost any room sound better. Audio Trends can help with both the design and supply/installation of room treatments.
