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.
