    Up for sale is a BLACK Anthem AVM 2 home theater preamp processor in excellent condition. This is one amazing piece of home theater gear! It is virtually identical to the Anthem AVM 20 in terms of sound quality and performance except that it is only 5.1 and lacks DPL II. I also have the Anthem AVM 20 and can tell you honestly that there is no difference in terms of sound quality between the two pre amps. I actually prefer the ease of use of the AVM 2 in comparison to the AVM 20. Given that they sound the same and that the AVM 2 was easier to use, I was trying to sell the AVM 20 but since it seems to be a hard sell, I will part with my beloved AVM 2 instead.

    This piece originally cost $4000 CDN a couple of years ago so I am asking $1450 CDN obo plus shipping. It is in excellent condition and comes with original box, manual, remote etc.
