WHAT IS ANTHEM ROOM CORRECTION AND WHY IS IT THE BEST
ON THE MARKET?

Even when the finest speakers are perfectly positioned, the room itself can have a dramatic negative impact on sound quality. Room dimensions, dead spots, archways, even furniture can turn a room into an additional instrument adding unwanted coloration and resonance to
music and movies.

ARC adjusts for the room’s effect on the speakers in a way that mimics our hearing. Now your Anthem gear and your Paradigm speakers can do what they do best: allow you to lose yourself in the music or
movie you’re watching. How does ARC do
what it does?

  • ARC analyzes each speaker’s in-room response then sets output levels, crossover frequencies and room correction parameters for each one.
  • ARC applies correction for up to 7 channels plus the sub!
  • ARC applies Super-Efficient Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filters in addition to Anthem’s custom topology … all that means no ‘engine’ noise, this baby runs quickly and quietly.
  • Unlike other room correction systems, ARC allows for multiple microphone measurements, that way everyone in the room gets a better listen, not just those sitting directly between the speakers.
  • Processing power to spare!
  • ARCuracy! The connected PC’s 64-bit floating point processor calculates the correction curves to the n’th degree of accuracy.
  • Separate configurations for music and movies.
  • Applies correction to peaks and dips in room response – since rooms have both we get a far more natural and accurate response tackling both!
  • Fully automated or manual setup – you choose which procedure you want to use!
