Where is a good place to buy Anthem?

Denon too.

NewEgg has great deals, but will not ship to me (Alaska).

Michael, you can buy Denons on Amazon. Sorry, but no idea about Anthem.

I don't know about Alaska, Michael, but in Southern Ontario it would be either East Hamilton Radio(Hamilton) or Gibby's Electronic Supermarket(St Catherines). I don't know how it would work shipping wise/duty ect, but with the exchange rate you might get a better deal here as Anthem/Paradigm is local.

From Alaska your best bet would be a shop in Smithers B.C. Sorry can't remember the name of it. Though it has been there for years. I stayed there back in early mid 90s and the shop was already there. {only Hifi shop in that little city}.

Another option would be check the Anthem site fore your nearest dealer.

brendo gave you the breakdown on what is included. As for adjusting the curves, that is coming in the ARC Genesis product coming out this month, so it will be part of their ARC UI. I just haven't seen it yet. If it is like the ARC 2 UI, it is pretty easy.

Thanks guys. Brick and mortor stores seem to have died a death by Amazon..... So now I'm forced to buy from an on-line dealer, Amazon, or in some cases, Best Buy.

I've almost convinced myself to buy the Anthem Pre-pro. Either that or the 720.

I have a speaker config question first, tho. I can't quite make out in the manual if I can still use a 9.2 (non-atmos) speaker configuration, using two channels for front R/L height speakers. That is the processing format I currently employ. I think it's Dolby PLZ?? It looks like the surround back channels can be used for height, but not front R/L height.

I think that you have to buy them direct or via an "installer" type of dealer. They have a dealer locator page:
Anthem Dealer Locator But I don't see anything in Alaska.

They do list 2 other authorized online resellers (Audio Advice and Crutchfield), but they are locked in on price by Anthem, so it isn't a deal. You could hit up some Facebook groups and just post that you are looking for Anthem products in Alaska, and I bet that the person that sold me mine is still out there watching post... The group called "Home Theater Enthusiast" is a good place to start, but I think that he is in a number of those groups. (Home Theater on Your Budget, and HTFE Home Theater For Everyone). just PLEASE do not tell them that you know me. It won't do you any favors as he got in trouble with Anthem shipping across country lines at the prices he was selling them for, and so everyone tries to keep it quiet as to not draw too much attention to it. Still full warranties and supported (I know because I got one of the early product run models of the 1120, and it had an issue right away that needed warranty work - they just swapped it out). Good luck.

East Hamilton Radio has a few of the Anthems prices crossed out with "call us for price". That's the case with the MRX 720 and the 1120. Even if you don't use them, EHR might give you an idea what kind of deal someone else might offer. Gibby's is also good for Denon products inc "B" stock.

EHR will not ship to the US.... Thanks for the rec though. I don't do Facebook, but thanks for the idea Nick.

I've been reading the manual some more on these Anthems. The MRX 720 and AVM 60 are very similar with respect to logic and processing. Other than the obvious differences between the two (amps or balanced pre-outs), is there anything, in particular, that would make the AVM60 stand out as the superior audio processor, that makes it worth the extra $500?

The AVM60 has double the voltage on the analog outputs. This may or may not be important depending on the amplifier and sub you want to use. For Axiom amps and subs, it doesn't matter.
