Get the award-winning sound quality and power handling of Anthem amplifiers in a third-generation MRX series high-end multichannel AV receiver, packed with features and easy to integrate into your entertainment system.  Comes with Anthem Room Correction (ARC), Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM), 4K pass-through with fast HDMI switching and more.

11.2 Pre-Amplifier & 7 Amplifier Channels with ARC

Anthem Room Correction (ARC) quickly corrects the effects that reflective surfaces such as walls, floors and ceilings have on the sound going out from your loudspeakers.  It's a proprietary digital signal processing software developed in-house at Anthem which works with a specially engineered calibration microphone and your PC to quickly and easily tune-up audio for your own listening space, to achieve reference listening room-quality performance in the home.

Conducted by Anthem engineers in conjunction with the National Research Council of Canada, the groundbreaking research that went into this program lets you perform the required measurements and computations of the correction filters using almost any IBM PC, Macintosh, iPhone or Android device.  Whatever you choose, it offers detailed steps and configuration options for getting your system tuned right.


The provided measurement mic is substantial in size, weight and quality, and comes with its own calibration on the provided CD, and a sizable mic stand for optimal positioning.
