WHAT IS ANTHEM ROOM CORRECTION AND WHY IS IT THE BEST ON THE MARKET?
Latest ARC download link
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!
