Anthem D2
Canadian AV brands Anthem and Paradigm will make their UK debut at the Bristol Sound and Vision Show with new power amps and speakers

The Canadians are coming to Bristol. Anthem AV Solutions is the new UK distributor for the high-end Canadian brands Anthem and Paradigm, and it will use the Bristol Show to introduce a range of AV processors, power amplifiers and speakers.

Anthem will show off its £8500 Anthem Statement D2v (pictured) with Anthem Room Correction (ARC) – a preamp with a built-in broadcast quality processor, HD video switching, 24-bit/192kHz upsampling on all channels, balanced outputs and proprietary room correction.

Partnering this will be the P5 multichannel amplifier that offers 500W across each of its five channels.

Multi-award winning Canadian loudspeaker manufacturer Paradigm will demonstrate products from its Signature Series.

This will include the flagship six driver, three-way floorstanding Signature 8 – which weighs a back breaking 90.7kg and costs £7000 a pair – along with the C5, a six driver, three-and-a-half-way centre channel, and the ADP3, a five driver, three-way rear effects channel for those a wanting the full surround sound experience.

More after the break

Low frequencies will be delivered by the Signature SUB 25, which is powered by 3000W of Class D amplification.

You'll be able to hear these amps and speakers in action in the Executive Lounge on the Conservatory floor of the Marriott City Centre Hotel, Bristol, this weekend.
