I am very interested to know if TAS is planning to perform a review of the subject Anthem AV Processor. I am an audiophile that is very concerned about being able to maintain the sound quality of my two channel play back system but I also want to upgrade to multi-channel A/V playback. I appreciate your review of this Class'e SSP-800 because it fully addresses this issue. I believe the Anthem Statement D2-V2 is also trying to provide this capability. I also am very interested in the automatic room correction feature (ARC) that has been incorporated in the Anthem. In your review of the Class'e you mentioned that a manual EQ system is incorporated, but I believe it will be very difficult to find a qualified company, in my area, to come to my house and measure actual room responses and then adjust the Class'e EQ system. As you have mentioned before, having your audio system & room balanced to correct for room induced accoustic problems is very important. Your thoughts and a comparison of the audio capabilities of these two AV Processors would be of great help.
