Anthem Integrated 225


In our article, “Receivers vs. separates: Solving the audiophile's dilemma” we discuss the differences between two approaches to home audio and the pros and cons of each. At one point during our not-so-brief historical account of the progression of...

Pure, accurate and engaging sound ; Extremely powerful ; Clean, attractive design ; Outstanding phono input ; Balanced XLR inputs

Overly sensitive volume control

Anthem’s entirely solid state Integrated 225 is able to take listeners to that magical place for $1500.

TESTED: Anthem "Integrated 225" integrated amplifier


About a year ago (in Issue 7) Playback conducted a survey of 10 sub-$1,500 stereo integrated amplifiers with an eye toward discerning which models were the best musical performers under real-world conditions. This month, we continue in the spirit of...

Anthem Integrated 225


Wow. The Anthem Integrated 225 has been in my living room for a couple of months now. It does all I ask it, with ease. I am running all music as WAV files from my iMac to a Peachtree Audio DAC iT (via a fiber optic connection) and there into the Anthem...

Anthem Integrated-225 Integrated Amplifiers


I recently had my Anthem 225 up for sale after owning it for two years – largely because I had moved into an apartment from a house and was looking to save space (can't listen as loud anymore, either). After taking trials on several more space-friendly...

Anthem Integrated-225 Integrated Amplifiers


I'm fairly new to the "Stereo setup" coming from the Home Theater world. I used to have a Marantz PM5004 paired with Paradigm Mini Monitors (budget system but sounded suprisingly good). Then I came accross a really good deal and bought a pair of Martin...

Anthem Integrated-225 Integrated Amplifiers


I was perusing the Anthem's reviews and while I'm sure the negative posters truly believed what they said, I'm gonna say, IMHO, those attributes flat don't exist, at least in my setup.

Anthem Integrated-225 Integrated Amplifiers


I was not given the option for the 2014 model year, for some reason it stops at 2010. I am always dubious of people posing as self described "audiophiles" on this site. In truth, there are none who exhibit the correct methodology in reviewing a piece...

Anthem Integrated-225 Integrated Amplifiers


I just bought this gear with warranty so I can return it if I like. Very strong and clear to me. Negative reviews must be due to a system mismatch. I've been around audio for a few years and it's a fine sounding integrated to me. I bought it to...

Anthem Integrated-225 Integrated Amplifiers


I would agree with Dave… I bought this to have a little boost in power for speaker upgrade I was planning. I could not believe how much it changed the sound of my Paradigm Studio 100 v5. For the worse. My general TV watching pioneer receiver sounds...

Anthem Integrated-225


I really don't have a clue what Dave's complaints are all about. My experience has been 100% the opposite. I think Dave had a bad day or the integrated amp didn't pair well with his system. I have an Anthem 225 paired with Paradigm Reference Studio/80...
