Anthem P2 2-channel power amplifier with 325 watts per channel
Performance From The Heart
Anthem P2 Statement Power Amplifier is a powerful monoblock amplifier. Each channel is housed on its own glass-epoxy circuit board and heatsink with an autonomous power supply.Frequency-response channel matching is superb. The musical picture is seamless and exquisitely detailed with a multichannel soundstage that is astonishingly transparent, cohesive and three dimensional.
P2 and P5 amplifiers benefit from our proprietary input topology—a unique departure from the classical differential input stage. Eight low-noise bipolar input devices, hand-matched for superior balance, are configured in a complementary active-load cascode feedback arrangement. Heat shrink tubing applied around each critical input pair ensures superior thermal tracking.
Designed to reduce distortion, this arrangement not only ensures exceptionally linear response, but also superior bandwidth and superb amplifier reliability.
Conservatively rated, in a low-profile design, these low-impedance toroidal power supplies—one per amplifier channel—make no sacrifices when it comes to delivering a continuous supply of pure, clean low noise power.
They are shaped to minimize hum while a sequence-controlled soft turn on significantly reduces power line transients and in-rush current during start up, thereby preventing accidental tripping of the circuit breakers.
