Folks, I just pulled the trigger on the AVM-20. I've been reading all the great threads on HTF and AVS, and auditioned the piece a couple of times. In addition to the great sound I'm impressed by the upgradeability and excellent support from Anthem. I'm also impressed by the fantastic support you in the Anthem user community give each other and reassured to know I too can rely on that support. How many other products do you know that come with that kind of great support available free at the drop of a hat? The dealer had black ones in stock, but I decided to hold out for a silver one which is on order. Will be here before Christmas if I'm lucky. Can't wait! The new AVM-20's team mates are Bryston 4B-ST with Studio 60's for the mains, Anthem MCA-3 with Studio CC and Studio ADP center and surrounds, and an RP91 DVD player. For now it will be a 5.1 system, until I can get it all moved down to the basement. Really can't wait. I'm trying not to break down and settle for the black one, but if the silver doesn't come in before Christmas, well... I may need some help on this one!
