Anthem MCA-5 Series II - Amplifier 5 Channel

Another amp I ran across. How would this one sound with my S55"s compared to the B&K and Parasound amps. If it's a good match, what's a good price on one?

I wish I knew more about all of the different amps and how they sound, but I don't so I have to depend on everyone here who have more experience than me with the different amps.

    It's a good sounding amp. However I'd ask the guy selling it if there is any audible hiss coming from it threw the speakers. I think the earlier iterations of that amp had some problems.

  • I don't know this amp, but I am an avid fan of the Anthem sound. I prefer Anthem over Parasound or B&K myself. But like I said, I know absolutely nothing about this amp, so can't recommend it.

    I run an Anthem 225 integrated, fabulous piece of kit for the money. My next purchase will be the New STR series.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.
