Anthem MRX 300

 

The Anthem MRX 300 high-end 7.1 receiver is a sonic superstar.

Sensational sound quality ; Robust construction ; ARC offers tangible improvements

Lacks features ; Workmanlike looks ; Relatively limited socketry (four HDMI inputs)

Anthem MRX 300 7.1 A/V Receiver

 

Anthem is a company that is well-known in audiophile circles for cost-no-object separates and excellent separate power amplifiers. Anthem is the parent company to Paradigm, whose Studio 20 v.3 monitors were used in conjunction with the MRX300 for this...

I went into this review expecting a lot. Though it’s not the most expensive receiver I’ve ever reviewed it does come from a company with racehorse pedigree, so I expected it to be everything a receiver could be, which it did not appear to be, at first...

Anthem MRX 300 Receiver Preview

 

On its face, the Anthem MRX-300 is a very capable receiver. The MRX-300 sports 3D support through a free firmware update, Dual-processor audio DSP, a 1080p24 mode, Dolby Volume, and ProLogic IIx.

On its face, the Anthem MXR-300 is a very capable receiver. We were surprised that they managed to get so many of the newer features into the receiver. It is missing a few important ones like networking and Airplay but many wouldn't miss or use them....

Anthem MRX 300 Receiver First look

Anthem MRX 300 A/V Receiver

 

One power supply isn't enough to feed this colossus, so it has five. The user plugs into two separate 15-amp outlets. When you switch one of these things on, you'd swear the lights dim in every house on the block. I haven't yet been able to document my...

Anthem MRX 300 A/V Receiver

 

An Anthem A/V receiver? AVRs were Anathema to anthem, I mean anathema to Anthem, until recently. This company's heart has always been in surround separates—bleeding-edge surround processors, muscle amps that live on steak and steroids. The...

Anthem MRX 300

 

This receiver is an excellent example of value for dollar and should be part of anybody's HT setup for those looking to upgrade their system. It's by far the best receiver I've owned to date. I recently replaced my old NAD T752 which I've owned since...
