Now listen Anthem people I'm just the messenger lower your flamethrowers. I went to a dealer today in the metro Detroit area because I thought they sold Anthem products because they carry the Paradigm studio line. Well I go to audition the Anthem AVM-20, because all I have heard is rave reviews about them, but to my disappointment they did'nt carry it. The reason the salesman told me they don't carry them is because Anthem is not a very reputable company, that the company has changed hands with various owners over the years, and that "we would never sale such garbage material". Garbage Material? He then went on to tell me how much better Aragon products were over Anthem. He said aragon puts more into research, they are more reliable, blah,blah,blah... If I had a laptop with wireless Internet connectivity I would have posted from the store. I just want an upgrade from my Denon 3802 and Anthem sounds like the way to go. I have used this store for some time, I usually respect their opinion, but this just blew me away. With that long thread I know all you guys can't be wrong, and damn near every publication. I will still find a dealer to audition the anthem but I would like your input. Did he just want a sale or is there some truth to this?
