AVM50, $900 is a great deal. I much prefer Anthem sound quality to Marantz.

To my ear, ARC is a much better sounding room correction than Audyssey. And I also prefer my MRX-500 sound for 2-channel listening vs. any other receiver or pre/pro that I have heard.

What are the top units that you compared with ? Just to help narrow down my list.
Denon AVR-4520Ci, AVR-X4000, Marantz AV-7701, AVR-7007. I even prefer my less advanced MRX-500 to them, though it has the same version of ARC as the AVM50.

For some reason the Anthems sound so much more natural and musical to me. The Denons especially sound harsh and compressed especially at high volume. I can crank and crank my Anthem and it just keeps sounding better and better. Note that this was using all of them as a pre/pro, no internal amp usage.
