Anything But Average
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.
Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM)
All Anthem® amplifiers are designed to perform flawlessly—offering stunning musicality, tonal neutrality and incredible dynamics while driving any speaker load reliably under real-world conditions! The power supply is conservatively rated and the amplifiers run cool for greater reliability, but we didn’t stop there.
PVA Series amplifiers feature our ALM circuitry which protects sensitive output devices by constantly monitoring temperature, current and voltage to ensure optimum long-term performance. ALM is totally non-invasive—it is not in the signal path and only engages in the most extreme circumstances to protect the amplifier from damage by maintaining the safe operating area of the output devices. Buyer beware however! Not all amplifier manufacturers have sophisticated load-monitoring provisions. Many have saved the added cost, leaving their output devices unprotected, choosing instead to use the amplifier’s output devices as “fuses.” At Anthem, ALM is just one of the ways in which our products provide owners with years of reliable service.
