Why choose an A/V receiver? With an A/V receiver, everything you need to drive a music and home theater system is contained in one component. They are a space-saving, cost-effective alternative to separates (i.e. a preamplifier, A/V processor and separate external power amplifier). Anthem MRX receivers continue to win awards for their sound quality and ease of integration, and best of all, include ARC™—the Anthem Room Correction system. Read more about this exciting technology below.
Do I have options? With Anthem you always have options. You can purchase award-winning Anthem separates: a power amplifier (or multiple amplifiers!) to drive your speakers and an A/V processor to select the source (i.e. DVD, Blu-ray player, etc.), decode surround sound, control volume, manage bass, process and/or down-convert video content and send it to the TV/display, send audio to the amp(s), send music to other zones in the house, and control other system devices.
Either way, you can’t go wrong. It comes down to preference and budget. However, paired with Paradigm speakers, MRX receivers do it all! Now in their second generation, they are a simple, direct and economical route to outstanding music and home theater.
