Anthem Amplifiers

Anthem is a Canadian manufacturer that has been at it for two decades and is associated with Paradigm and Martin Logan. One good thing is that like Paradigm and ML, Anthem products are made in Canada and their amps come with a 5 year warranty and they aren’t shy about it. One does have to purchase from an authorized dealer of course (as you should with all audio products).
