Anthem Amps Carry Serious Connectors
Several items make it clear, Anthem is serious. First, lets look at their FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). The firm offers XLR connectors on its amps and preamps.
Why an XLR?
It is a balanced connection for canceling out certain types of interference and ground loops. Originally used for Microphones, it it the cleanest way to move a signal, bar none in the electrical world.
The more typical RCA connectors are ok for 3-6 feet (1-2 meters), as long as you don’t run the cable near an AC power cord. Probably the best choice is to us an Optical TOS cable which avoids ground loops from the get go.
Running down the FAQ, it becomes clear that Anthem is targeting a client that wouldn’t walk into a Big Box Store for sound. And it is equally clear you might need to be a bit technical to fully enjoy Anthem. Actually, you can strike that last sentence. AAA Electronics is Your Specialist so you don’t have to be!
