As a newbie to this forum let me thank all of you for your interesting and informative posts. If anyone here also belongs to the TiVo forum you may know me as Jlwine. I too have an Anthem AVM 20. I originally demoed than purchased one back in 2001. Interestingly enough my original demo machine was the Paradigm rep's pre-released unit with software Version 0.99 installed. After auditioning the demo, with the help of my sales rep I successfully lobbied my A/V dealer (Ovation)to become a dealer for Anthem. They have since sold many more units despite the fact that they do not have the Anthems on the floor due to exclusive contracts with other manufacturers. Last year I upgraded my unit with the new processor and software. After downloading v. 2.10 this past Sunday I immediately noticed a couple of things sonically. On the plus side the soundstage, clarity and imaging were even greater than before. On the negative side I seemed to have loss quite a bit of bass and some CD's sounded a little bright. After recalibrating everything I think I'm about back to where I need to be (Hopefully)with the bass and have toned down the treble just a bit to address the brightness. I really do appreciate all the new features especially the notch filter. Being able to download a new manual is nice touch as well. (I bought a binder and page protectors--looks cool ) Anthem continues to impress me.
