Building on the success of their first-generation range of home cinema separates, Anthem (from Canada) has unveiled its next generation of their AVR range: the MRX 710 (Pictured), MRX 510 and MRX 310.
Remote control apps for Android and iOS (Apple) devices, improved ease of integration, a new version of the company’s proprietary Anthem Room Correction (ARC 1M) system and drivers for popular control systems are some of the improvements Anthem have made.
The new models come with more HDMI inputs, dual HDMI outputs, faster HDMI switching, more robust control (IP and RS-232 control drivers for full integration with automation), software updates via the USB port, larger, easier-to-read on-screen menus and improved status displays.
