Anthem Statement D2 V.2

The Mythbuster

Everyone knows that if you’re in the market for an ultra-high-end A/V preamp/processor, you may as well forget about the latest bells and whistles, right? It’s simply an understood truth that the latest audio and video connections and format decoding are the domain of less expensive receivers, and take a while to make it to the true performance monsters.

Well, as with most understood truths and things that “everyone” knows, this truism turns out to be complete bunk—at least when it comes to Anthem’s renowned Statement D2 audio/video processor. The latest revision of this performance powerhouse, dubbed the D2 V.2, not only boasts an updated VXP digital image processor (offering uncompromised deinterlacing, noise reduction, artifact reduction, adaptive detail enhancement, and adaptive contrast enhancement), it also features a whopping eight HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, all of which are HDMI 1.3c and are compatible with 36-bit Deep Color video. What’s more, it features internal decoding of all the latest 7.1 audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
