MRX 710, MRX 510 and MRX 310. No trade offs: high-end performance with ease of integration.
Denver, CO – CEDIA EXPO 2013 – Sept. 26th – 28th – Booth #SR-1 – Anthem Electronics is pleased to announce the next generation of its popular high-end A/V receivers: MRX 710, MRX 510 and MRX 310. With IP and RS-232 control, the new lineup 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. Aesthetically, these next-generation models feature a sleek, minimalist front panel and well-organized back panel. High-quality amplification, ease of integration, a useful, 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.
OVERVIEW OF MRX GENERATION 2
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. Power ratings are provided in the ‘Technical Specifications’ section later in this release.
