Anthem’s no-nonsense, performance-led approach to AV receivers has earned the Canadian company an enviable reputation among home cinema enthusiasts. Their receivers develop a powerful and refined performance.

What really sets Anthem’s receivers apart is the inclusion of its exclusive Anthem Room Correction software (ARC). ARC has been enhanced to make it easier to use and even more accurate. Everything you need is bundled in the box, including a microphone and tripod stand – another reason why Anthem’s receivers represent phenomenal value for money.

Anthem has announced the next generation of its high-end A/V receivers, with new models including the MRX 520 (£1499), the MRX 720 (£2899) and the flagship MRX1120 (£3999).
Enhancements over previous generations include de rigueur Dolby Atmos decoding, DTS Play-Fi and readiness for DTS:X immersive audio decoding. Additional channels of processing and amplification are also supplementary as you move up the line. As the model names suggest, the MRX 520 includes five channels of amplification, the MRX 720 includes seven channels of amplification and the MRX 1120 includes eleven channels of amplification, which keeps things nice and simple.


Also launched is the AMV60 (£3599). Few AV Pre Amplifier/Processors offer the innovation and performance found in the all new AVM60. Features include Dolby Atmos immersive audio decoding, future upgrade for DTS:X, support for UHD Blu-ray and 4K60 through HDMI 2.0a with HDR. HDCP 2.2 and 18.2 Gbps are also included allowing switching for compatibility with the latest video formats.

Audiophile-friendly features include a toroidal power supply, premium differential-output D/A converters with 32-bit conversion and sampling rate optimised filters for hi-res sound. Premium A/D converters with 106 dB signal to noise ratio ensure the highest- quality sound when using analog sources.

DTS Play-Fi offers easy-to-use music playback from popular streaming services and locally networked sources, controlled through iOS, Android or PC apps.
