New Anthem Receivers
Anthem, the leading manufacturer of high-end electronics for music, home theater and distributed audio systems, announces shipping of their MRX 500 and 700 receivers. All MRX series receivers feature seven channels of amplification, four HDMI in/one out and the ability to play music from a flash drive, USB disk drive or the Internet. For optimal sound reproduction from any set-up, MRX receivers are also equipped with the Anthem Room Correction (ARC) system. Impassioned audiophiles who prefer separation between amplifier and preamplifier/processor still have that option with Anthem Reference products, while the new MRX receivers deliver the convenience and value of a single component. Anthem MRX receivers include support for the latest audio formats including Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Pro Logic IIz, and DTS-HD Master Audio. Internet radio is available on both models while HD Radio is supported by the MRX 700 only.
MRX series receivers will also provide pass through for 3D movies and television when paired with a 3DTV and a 3D capable source component, making them a stalwart in 3D-enabled home theaters. Trigger output and second zone functionality along with video configuration memorized by source adds further value to the Anthem receiver line.
Technical features of the MRX receivers include:
• 7 channels of amplification
• Built in award-winning Anthem Room Correction (ARC) system
• Internet Radio via built-in Ethernet port on models 500 and up
• Front and rear USB inputs play music from hard drive or memory stick
