Anthem MCA 225

Like all Anthem products the MCA 225 is designed and Crafted in Canada. Featuring 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 is reflected in clean, clear, audiophile-quality sound from top to bottom of the frequency spectrum. Experience the immense dynamics of up to 600 clean Watts delivered into demanding 2-Ohm loads. Both power supply impedance and internal cabling inductance have been minimized to deliver a clear path for maximum power, even in the most demanding conditions.

Audiophile components

MCA amplifiers deliver incredible dynamics thanks to massive “audiophile approved” conservatively rated power supplies designed with high rail voltages.

Low flux toroidal power transformers ensure ultra quiet performance by minimizing stray magnetic field radiation. This provides the pure, clean, low-noise power that is needed to reproduce the full dynamics of home theatre and the most complex and dynamic music recordings.

Custom-designed, oversized robust binding posts ensure full power delivery at all times. They’re easy to use and facilitate large speaker cable connectors.
