....oh, I forgot to mention the sub is Omega Deep Hemp, purchased a few years ago.
BTW: I have never been a fan of the HT systems I've heard in stores. -- To me, the sounded like overblown garbage pounding in the low-mids and bass. For years, my mantra was I would rather listen to two good speakers than 5+ crappy HT speakers... *
I don't know how much of what I hear can be attributed to the Anthem, but I will say I have never heard HT sound better than this. Bigger and more powerful yes, but for clarity and refinement, I can't say enough good about this little system in my relatively small room (with lots of GIK bass traps, etc.).
* My comments are relative to what I've heard in stores. No disrespect to others, as I'm sure I'm not the only audiophile that's figured out a way to make HT sound good in their home.
