Anthem PVA 8, 125 W per Channel

Unlocking the incredible sound sculptures, special effects and dynamics of today’s home theater and multichannel music recordings is no small feat, at least for the average amplifier. But then, Anthem’s PVA 2, PVA 5 and PVA 7 amplifiers are anything but average. They are equally at home delivering all of the thundering impact and excitement of a surround sound movie experience as they are imparting the subtle nuances of a multichannel music performance or paying rich sonic tribute to the sweeping highs and lows of your favorite two-channel recording.

And there’s more … in a category dominated by low-quality, low power distribution amps, with very few audiophile-quality products to choose from, PVA 4 and PVA 8 are truly exciting alternatives. They offer ultra-affordable Anthem-quality solutions for achieving “real performance” from your high-fidelity Zone 2 and 3 distributed audio applications. Add the four-channel PVA 4 to cover Zones 2 and 3 on your multi zone Anthem processor or add the eight-channel PVA 8 for twice the stereo amplification channels—power more speakers, or more zones.
