Newbie(ish) advice please - Arcam vs Anthem vs NAD vs Denon


Novice Member
Hello all (second post)

I've posted elsewhere about centre speaker positioning and mentioned that I was going with an Anthem MRX740 driving MA Silvers. But I’m still thinking about it. ..

I cant find anywhere that sells all of the Anthem and the Arcam AVR20 and the NAD T778 (we’re SE London) and then there’s also an equivalent pricepoint Denon (but which one?). I had Arcam’s first AVR twenty years ago and liked what I heard when I tested it. The installer reckons Anthem has the best setup, Denon looks good too, and NAD has the streaming function. I’m confused!

Any and all advice is very gratefully received.

Thank you!

Purchased stuff from them before and they have been fast and reliable.
If you play music as well through your Monitor Audio's the Arcam amps work well with them. Not had any experience with Anthem though they are very highly rated. Only you can decide, Have a chat with the guys at premium sound.
