Anthem Room Correction (ARC®)

Using your mobile device or optional calibrated microphone (included with Defiance X models, sold separately on Defiance V models*), ARC® measures your space, compares it to lab standard using proprietary advanced DSP algorithms, and instantly removes performance-robbing anomalies. The result is easy to hear: realistically blended, accurately rendered deep bass. Professional room correction at the touch of a button.
