Flagship Home Theater - Part 2: Anthem Statement D2v Audio/Video Processor and Statement A5 Five-Channel Power Amplifier


On the Bench (JEJ)

Distortion measurements were made within an 80 kHz bandwidth, both channels driven, 100 kOhms load.

At 1 kHz, THD+N was a very low 0.001%

Anthem D2v

Using a combination of 19 kHz and 20 kHz sine waves, the B-A peak at 1 kHz was 113 dB below the fundamentals. There were some additional peaks in the out-of-band region between 38 kHz and 47 kHz.

IMD was 0.001%.

THD+N vs Frequency is shown below. Distortion stayed below 0.01% all the way out to 50 kHz, even at 5 volts output.


THD+N vs. Output Voltage shows that the D2v produced 5 volts before beginning its rapid rise to clipping (1% THD+N) at 9 volts.


The measured frequency response was flat to 20 kHz and down 6 dB at 200 kHz.
