Anthem is pleased to announce the next generation of its award-winning high-end AV Receivers. The new generation of MRX AV Receivers share many new features and improvements over previous generations, with even more moving up the series, such as Dolby Atmos® immersive audio decoding, DTS Play-Fi® and readiness for DTS:X®. Additional channels of processing and amplification are also supplementary as you move up the line. Just as the model names suggest, MRX520 includes five channels of amplification, MRX720 includes seven channels of amplification and MRX1120 includes eleven channels of amplification.
At the entry level, the MRX520 includes 5 channels of amplification, 5.1-channel processing and a rear panel input complement of seven rear HDMI inputs (including one with MHL support), three optical, two coaxial and five stereo analog inputs. It has two parallel HDMI outputs, (including one with Audio Return Channel), an optical output that passes through optical and coaxial input, pre-outs for all channels including two parallel sub woofer outputs, line output and Zone 2 output.
Moving up the line, the MRX720 includes 7 channels of amplification, which is suitable for driving 7.1, 5.1.2, and 5.1 plus zone 2 speaker systems. With external amplification for height speakers the main pre-outs can be used for 7.1.4-channel systems. The input complement is similar to that of the MRX520, adding a front HDMI input which also supports MHL. Other stand-out features include Dolby Atmos® immersive audio decoding and DTS:X® (via a future software update). DTS Play-Fi® wireless multi-room audio technology is also built-in. Users can also enjoy the wireless network connection to run the award-winning Anthem Room Correction (ARC) system, making set-up more convenient than ever before.
The line-up’s flagship model is the MRX1120, which includes all of the benefits of the MRX 720 plus more channels than ever before in Anthem’s MRX line of AV Receivers – 11.1 channels of processing and a rare 11 channels of amplification, all through a toroidal power supply. The internal amplification can be configured for up to 7.1.4 speakers or 5.1.4 plus zone 2. With professional-quality room correction, support for the latest immersive audio and UHD video formats, wireless music streaming and IP control and built-in amplification for 7.1.4 speakers the MRX1120 is at the centre of a new standard in high-end home cinema receivers
