Anthem Introduces Next-Generation MRX A/V Receivers


The MRX 710, MRX 510 and MRX 310 mean that you can now have an A/V receiver with no trade-offs. They deliver high-end performance and ease of integration in one stunning unit.

Anthem Electronics is pleased to announce the next generation of its popular high-end A/V receivers: MRX 710, MRX 510 and MRX 310. High-quality amplification, ease of integration and a forward-looking feature set with a new version of Anthem Room Correction (ARC 1M) reinforce Anthem’s position as a leading provider of affordable high-end A/V receivers. Aesthetically, these next-generation models feature a sleek, minimalist front panel and well-organized back panel. With IP and RS-232 control, the new line-up boasts an expanded, highly flexible command set including drivers for popular control systems, as well as remote control apps for Android and iOS (Apple) devices.



A room’s physical dimensions, architectural details, even furnishings, play a dramatic role in sound quality, so Anthem engineers saw fit to further refine the company’s award-winning room correction system. Dubbing it ARC 1M, the software and microphone kit are again included as part of the MRX offering. ARC 1M connects via Ethernet, enjoys a higher level of digital signal processing and offers users the option to print ‘before and after’ room measurement graphs.


MRX 710 and 510 feature 7 channels of power. MRX 310 (due out early 2014) is a five-channel unit. All models feature Anthem’s proprietary Advanced Load Monitoring, designed to keep a constant eye on output.

Maximum continuous output into 8 ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.1% THD:

MRX 710 120 W (2 channels driven),        90 W (5 channels driven)

MRX 510 100 W (2 channels driven),        75 W (5 channels driven)
