    ANTHEM D2v is a product that has established itself as a reference preamplifier/processor around the world. It is the most complete and well refined preamplifier/processor we've ever encountered. It features all the features that one could ever want, more inputs than one might need, and and delivers complete control of something this powerful. Both the D2v and the AVM 50v are 3D ready. They both feature broadcast-quality video processing. The D2v also features one of the most advanced room correction software available: ARC, or Anthem Room Correction software. Various solutions have fallen in and out of favor over the years and all have enjoyed some success diminishing the rooms affect on the soundfield. Using proprietary processes and the power of your laptop, the ARC system, years in development, analyzes each speaker’s in-room sound and then computes the required correction to yield optimal performance from every speaker. We believe that the ARC is the best Room Correction software we've ever used and it's available on the entire lineup of ANTHEM products.
