Reference stereo sound from the AV pros
The Canadian company that’s world renowned for making some of the best AV equipment in the world, also produces stereo amps and, as you’d expect, they’re something special. The STR Integrated combines a high-resolution pre-amp with mighty power amp for scintillating stereo sound. A built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) and MM/MC phonostage make it a highly versatile choice, too. Thanks to Anthem’s acclaimed ARC room correction system, perfect results are guaranteed in all spaces.
At the heart of the STR Integrated is an 8-device amp, powered by a mighty toroidal mains transformer for effortless power. With 200 watts per channel on tap, there won’t be many speakers or rooms that cause the amp to break a sweat.
Handmade circuits, featuring top quality components ensure a clear, dynamic sound. For the best possible sound with your analogue sources, Analogue Direct bypasses auxiliary circuits for the ultimate in detail.
Anthem Room Correction for professional results in any room
Designed in conjunction with the National Research Council of Canada, ARC (Anthem Room Correction) provides a sonic output that’s ideal for your particular room. Using the supplied mic and stand, 5-10 placement measurements are made. Next, use the supplied software on your PC to determine the optimal settings on the amp to suit your room. The result is a sound closer to the original – in any room. (Professional set-up recommended).
Connect your digital sources
Featuring a built-in 32-bit DAC, the STR Integrated connects directly with your digital sources. With no fewer than two optical and two coaxial inputs, there are enough inputs for a CD, TV, streamer and set-top TV box. For the best sound from your home computer or laptop, there’s also an Asynchronous USB input – ideal for steaming hi-res music files right up to 384kHz/32-bit and DSD 5.6 MHz.
Up-sampling to 192kHz-32-bit
Even if you don’t have access to Hi-res music files, you can get much of the benefit from your existing digital sources. Thanks to digital up-sampling, all digital inputs can be upsampled to 192 kHz/32-bit resolution for enhanced clarity and detail.
MM and MC phono inputs to suit most turntables
Making the STR Integrated suitable for all types of turntable, the built-in phonostage accepts both MM (Moving Magnet) and MC (Moving Coil) cartridges. The phonostage itself is shielded from other components, helping the delicate signal maintain its purity, for the most transparent sound possible.
Anthem’s ALM (Advanced Load Monitoring) monitors the receiver’s temperature, current and voltage output – protecting the circuits when needed. Unlike other protection systems, ALM is non-evasive, meaning it operates outside of the signal path and, therefore, doesn’t affect the sound quality.
Bass management for two subwoofers
The STR Integrated gives you far more subwoofer options than most stereo amps. Twin outputs let you use one or two subs. If you decide on two, they can be configured for left and right or dual-mono – whatever you feel sounds best. Used in conjunction with Anthem’s ARC, bass management gives seamless blending for smooth, ‘thump-free’ sound.
Professional XLR, balanced inputs
More usually found in studios, XLR balanced inputs offer excellent noise resistance and a ‘locked in’ connection for the lowest distortion and most secure connection. The STR Integrated offers these sockets for both analogue and digital inputs.
Treat your stereo system to Anthem prowess, with the hugely capable STR Integrated.
