About the Anthem MCA 525 Gen 2

Multichannel muscle for your home theater

Anthem's MCA 525 Gen 2 is overbuilt to provide your five-speaker surround sound system with all the power it needs, and then some. It follows in the footsteps of the impressive first-generation MCA 525, with meaningful improvements. It's been completely redesigned, with shorter internal cabling that creates a smoother circuit pathway.

Multichannel muscle for your home theater

Anthem's MCA 525 Gen 2 is overbuilt to provide your five-speaker surround sound system with all the power it needs, and then some. It follows in the footsteps of the impressive first-generation MCA 525, with meaningful improvements. It's been completely redesigned, with shorter internal cabling that creates a smoother circuit pathway.

Why does that matter? Because a well-designed amplifier can do a better job of controlling the stop-start motion of your speakers' drivers, enhancing virtually every aspect of sound quality from deep bass, to dynamics, to soundstaging.

Home theater hero 

Usually power amps like this one are paired with A/V preamp/processors. Anthem's MRX Series home theater receivers have preamp outputs, so you can easily connect the MCA 525 Gen 2 and use it to drive your front left, right, and center channels, plus two back speakers or surrounds. That surge of added power does wonders for music and movie soundtracks.

Inside the Anthem sound

The MCA 525 Gen 2's rated power output provides a clue to this amp's unshakeable grip on the music. It produces 225 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 400 watts into 4 ohms and an incredible 600 watts into 2 ohms! There are two beefy toroidal transformers inside to ensure stable, noise-free performance.

And each channel has eight bipolar output transistors, to deliver loads of effortless high-current power. The typical A/V receiver uses only two output transistors per channel. Every feature has been optimized so that you'll hear clean, transparent sound emerging from an eerily quiet background.

Made in Canada, respected around the world

For more than two decades, Anthem has been making award-winning high-performance audio/video equipment for music and home theater. Anthem power amplifiers are designed, engineered, and built in Canada.
