Best Speaker Setup System: Anthem MRX "20-Series" Home Theater Receivers
"Although brands, such as Yamaha, Denon, and Onkyo are the most well-known makers of home theater receivers, there are other brands that cater to a more narrow high-end consumer base.
One of those brands is Anthem, which although known for its high-end audio component separates, such as power amplifiers and preamps, also makes an impressive line of the home theaters, referred to as the MRX-series.
There are three MRX models - 520, 720, and 1120.
All three receivers are HDMI 2.0a, 3D, 4K, HDR, and HDCP 2.2 compliant, and also incorporate 32-bit DACs (Digital-analog-converters) for optimum audio quality from any digital source, and Zone 2 operation capability." - Robert Silva, Lifewire
Reviewer John Gatski, Everything Audio Network writes, "from my lengthy review tenure, I will tell you that the new MRX-720 (and through extrapolation, the big brother MRX-1120) is a fantastic receiver that combines a significant step up in audio quality..."
"If you combine its upper-echelon receiver sound quality with its ease of use and the plethora of bells and whistles that keep it modern, the MRX-720 is as good a receiver as any at twice the price. I normally don’t do this so early in the review, but my opinion is that the MRX-720 is an award-garnering receiver — and it only costs $2,499."
"If I had to choose one word to describe the performance of Anthem’s MRX-1120, it would be "cinematic". At the end of the day, this is what good home theatre is all about folks."
"From the get go, it was clear that Anthem’s MRX-1120 was capable of achieving some serious volume levels, so much so that I couldn’t play at my usual volume levels without waking the entire house.
The MRX-1120 created a huge, seamless soundstage that threatened to burst the seams of my small to medium sized home theatre room. The soundstage was seamless, with the MRX-1120 not calling attention to any particular speaker in the room, but rather creating a unified sound-field.
Detail was in abundance. As Chisolm makes his way through an unforgiving desert environment, the harsh winds can be clearly heard whipping around him. While there are plenty of AVR’s out there that are capable of turning in a detailed performance, the MRX-1120 had a way of bringing detail to the fore and giving it a sense of realism. With Chisolm riding into town, the sounds of the townsfolk going about their business and the rings from the smithy’s hammer are all clearly rendered.
The MRX-1120 was also quick to show me who’s in control, putting any doubts I had about its parallel subwoofer inputs to rest. When the mines are blown early in the movie, I was startled as the explosions rattled the otherwise serene countryside; a rarity these days unless I’m watching a James Wan horror movie."
