Anthem has just announced that its most affordable AV receiver, the MRX 300, priced at $1,099 CAD is now shipping. This receiver is joining the highly regarded MRX 500 and 700 models – the reviews of these are just beginning to trickle out. In fact, we just posted our own MRX 500 review which can be read HERE.
The MRX 300 offers seven channels of amplification, four HDMI inputs and the ability to run Anthem Room Correction (ARC) software along with a new 3D firmware upgrade. It also has HD radio. The MRX 300 packs a processing punch with upscaling to 1080p 60hz, composite/component video to HDMI conversion , a dual-processor audio DSP and decoding for all the major audio formats. With inputs galore including four HDMI, seven analog video, five digital audio and seven stereo analog RCA, the MRX 300 is an entry-level AV hub with the heart and innards of a flagship.
3D Firmware Update
A free firmware upgrade has also just been released on the Anthem website which gives entertainment enthusiasts a reason to expand beyond the second dimension, since all MRX models can now process 3D source material.
3D firmware upgrades for all MRX models can be found on the Anthem software updates page.
