Anthem MRX 720

The Anthem MRX720 is part of Anthem’s brand new A/V receiver lineup. The MRX720 features 7 channels of amplification, which allows the setup of 7.1, 5.1.2 and 5.1 speaker arrangements.

The MRX720 supports Dolby Atmos, allowing the addition of ceiling speakers into your surround system. This model has eight total HDMI inputs; seven in the back and one in the front of the unit. The MRX720 supports the latest UHD video formats by including HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2, 18.2 Gbps switching, 4:4:4 at 4K60, 10 bits, BT.2020 and more. DTS:X immersive audio coding will be supported through a future software upgrade.

Audiophiles with a collection of hi-res files will be pleased to note that the MRX720 includes a premium quality DAC  with 32-bit conversion and sampling rate optimized filters.

In addition, Anthem has  included the brand new DTS Play-Fi which, when paired with Anthem’s app, allows wireless streaming of music and online music streaming services like Tidal, Spotify, Pandora etc.  The app is compatible with Android, iOS, Kindle and computer systems. Anthem is the first manufacturer to include such an innovative feature in an A/V receiver. The DTS Play-Fi supports file formats up to 24 bit/192 kHz.

The Anthem ARC room correction system is included with the amplifier.  This professional quality system allows the user to load the ARC program, set up a microphone, and then tune your speaker setup specifically to your individual room, overcoming the effects of room obstacles and allowing your speakers to achieve a more natural sound.
