Re: Anthem D2 or Arcam AV9?
I know that this is not a good answer and only complicates the decission, but what about a Halcro SSP-100 or 80?
If audio is your number one priority, then this is the unit to audition.
I have not had a chance to compare the Arcam vs the Anthem. I do know from friends that have auditioned the Anthem vs Halcro, the Halcro was the winner for audio.
