AVA for past 3 years has featured Anthem Audio AV products and we believe the ARC calibration is the best bang out there when it comes to room sound setup! Now the Anthem’s include Dolby Atmos and DTS:X!
The MRX 1120 is Anthem’s latest flagship AV receiver which not only adds Dolby Atmos and, thanks to a future firmware update, DTS:X but also, as the name suggests, includes 11 channels of built-in amplification. That means you can create a full 7.2.4-channel immersive audio configuration from a single box and although that isn’t unique, there are other examples of 11-channel receivers, they don’t also include Anthem’s excellent room correction software.
Anthem have never gone in for massive feature lists, preferring to concentrate on those that matter and once again the MRX 1120 includes features and functions aimed at performance rather than box ticking. So along with the built-in amplification, ARC, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, you also get two parallel sub out jacks, quad core digital signal processing, 32-bit/768kHz digital-to-analogue converters, four speaker profile memories, a wireless network connection and DTS Play-Fi.
If you’re looking for an AV receiver than can deliver a full 7.1.4-channel immersive audio experience from a single box then your options are limited and aside from the Anthem MRX 1120 the only other example currently available is the Onkyo TX-NR3030 but that doesn’t have DTS:X or HDMI 2.0a. So if that’s your basic criteria the MRX 1120 is the receiver for you. If you don’t mind adding two or four channels of extra amplification then you have plenty of options but the Anthem remains an excellent choice.
