Anthem STR Preamplifier

...successfully takes all the essential analog and digital elements of a top-notch stereo front end and successfully mates them to the almost practical necessity of an advanced and flexible room correction system with proper bass management.
— CARLO LO RASO, SECRETS OF HOME THEATER AND HIGH FIDELITY

 

... 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 it] puts forth impressive power figures for an amplifier in such a reasonably sized package.... 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.
