225W in 5-Channels

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.

  • Delivers lower THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) for cleaner, pure sound and lower noise
  • Completely redesigned for improved audio performance and reliability
  • Higher current output for lower distortion
  • Cosmetic match for AVM 60 A/V Preamplifier-Processor
  • Improved Advanced Load Monitoring system
  • 8 bipolar output devices per channel for less stress on each device
  • Less than 2 watts standby power consumption
  • Crafted in Canada
