15.4 Dolby Atmos and DTS X AV Processor
Featuring premium quality digital processing and an impressive 15.4 channel output, the Anthem AVM 90 delivers the ultimate in home cinema.
15.4 channel processing for reference home cinema sound
With 15.4 output channels, the AVM 90 has the processing power for the most sophisticated home cinema systems. Add suitable power amps and you’ll be able to decode Dolby Atmos and DTS:X signals, right up to Dolby Atmos 9.4.6 – enough for the largest home cinemas. For best results, pair with the Anthem MCA-Series power amps.
Premium digital processing
As Anthem’s flagship AV processor, the AVM 90 gets their highest level of digital processing. The AKM AK4499EQ DAC decodes up to 32 bit, with 768kHz sampling capability. Combined with the improved analogue components, it means that the AVM 90 produces exception levels of detail and realism, letting you hear every breath of information – even during an action-packed movie.
XLR balanced output option
Making the AVM 90 the ideal match for reference quality home cinema systems, it features 19 XLR, balanced outputs. Match with compatible power amplification for a top quality, low distortion link. Alternatively, non-balanced RCA phono outputs are also fitted.
ARC Genesis – the Anthem difference
As well as premium quality electronics, the feature that sets Anthem apart is ARC (Anthem Room Correction). The latest ARC Genesis software marks a big step forward, giving you perfect room integration, ensuring you make the most of the AVM 90’s potential. Compatible with Mac and Windows, this third generation room correction system uses bespoke DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and a dedicated microphone. Once set-up, you’ll hear an astonishing improvement in how much more integrated and ‘together’ the sound is. (Professional set-up recommended).
Making the most of the AVM 90’s awesome multi-channel ability, DTS:X Pro takes DTS:X to the next level. Giving even greater spatial resolution, effect speakers steer the sound with greater accuracy for stunning realism.
The magic of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X use ceiling or up-firing speakers for three-dimensional and fully immersive sound. Whether it’s rain falling in a tropical jungle or the intense sound of overhead gunfire, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X put you in the centre of the action.
Certified for IMAX Enhanced
A partnership between IMAX, DTS and award-winning Hollywood sound mixers delivers a stunning new sound format – IMAX Enhanced. Only the highest quality home cinema equipment meets the standard, with IMAX enhanced content available on HDR streaming and UHD Blu-ray disc.
Four, independent sub outputs
Taking the flexible speaker configuration further, the AVM 90 features quad, independently adjustable subwoofer outputs. This means that you can place subwoofers around your room and control them independently. ARC Genesis ensures system optimisation, with seamless bass throughout the listening area.
Zone 2 HDMI
For a fully independent AV output, the AVM 90 comes with a Zone 2 HDMI output. This lets you vary the audio and visual output to another display – such as a TV set in another room. In addition to this, there are twin HDMI outputs to the master source – ideal if you use a projector and a TV in the same room.
Upgradable HDMI board - Supports Dolby Vision, HDR, HLG and eARC
Equipped with an upgradable, 7 in/3 out HDMI interface, the AVM 90 supports a wide range of High Dynamic Range video formats. These include Dolby Vision, HDR and HLG. It also supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), the latest Audio Return Channel system that transmits uncompressed surround sound signals, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, from your compatible TV, back to the amp. The removable board allows for future HDMI upgrades (dealer return required).
AirPlay 2, Chromecast and Bluetooth – your choice of streaming
Connect to your network via wi-fi or Ethernet and stream from your music app of choice. Compatible with AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast, the player suits most music apps available on Apple and Android smartphone and tablet devices. Bluetooth provides a quick and easy wireless link to your smartphone, tablet or computer for simple music streaming. A free, future update will also include support for Spotify and Roon, making the AVM 90 even more versatile.
