Which separates would you choose Adcom v Anthem?

Between these two, Adcom GTP 870HD/GFA 7607or 7707 vs Anthem AVM-50/MCA 50, which would you choose? Any experience? Thanks.

I'd go listen.I sold Adcom for years and while I don't think their build quality is always up to snuff (not so much in amps/pre but especially thier Cd players but some electronic contacts could be better).I just didn't think Anthem was all that great sounding.Would also add Rotel and NAD the latter of which has gone from real price point brand upwards and less of $$ value they are extremely good sounding.
Having had the Adcom in my system for an audition (friends unit) and owned an AVM2, AVM20, AVM50, AVM20-HD and a D2, I'd go for the Anthem. The AVM50 also has a broadcast scaler built in and the new AVM50v decodes the new HD surround formats. Of course, the Anthem is twice the price of the AVM50, which isn't a fair comparison.
I'd also add Integra pre/pro and ATI power amps (or active speakers). I believe choosing any pre/pro or receiver without some form of room mode correction would be a mistake.
Anthem, and I own Rotel and Lexicon but Anthem is a step above, ofcourse you gotta pay for it.
I've had success with Anthem products (AVM-2, Int-2). Well built with good to excellent sonic quality. I paricularly liked the Integrated 2 with good quality tubes in the front end.

Adcom products I have owned (GFA-535, GFA-555 or tried out GPA-1) did seem to have the build quailty or fidelity of the Anthem products. A bit hard and edgy to my ears.

My opinion only.
I have good familiarity with both of these products and the Anthem is worth the extra $2k, if you have it. However, Adcom makes a very value oriented product. The Anthem is more musical and provides a wider sound stage. If you're looking in that price range, you should also consider the B&K Ref 70/Ref 200.5 combo. It's more reliable and sounds every bit as good as the Anthem. I've had a situation where the Anthem factory could not determine the cause of failure, nor repair their own gear for one of my clients. Let me know what you think.
Anthem D2/MCA50 owner here.

Really, really good stuff. Sound, build quality, and the interfaces on the processor are all excellent.

I have no complaints whatsoever about this HT front end. I haven't used Adcom, but I think you'd be pretty happy with Anthem.
