After hearing how impressed Robert Kozel was of the MRX 710, Secrets of Home Theater wanted to put its littlest brother, the MRX 310 to the test. So we sent an MRX 310 off to Carlo Lo Raso for evaluation. Below is a summary of his thoughts...
"Anthem really impressed me with this receiver, even more so than I was initially expecting. With an excess of capable A/V receivers out there vying for your attention, it may be easy to overlook the Anthem MRX 310 because it doesn’t have the latest “gee whiz” features. That would be a serious mistake."
"This receiver makes you reassess what’s really important for the front end of your home theater. In this case, sometimes 5.1 channels can be as good as or better than 7.1 for the right size room. Quality amplification and componentry are more important than having another box that streams stuff."
"The Anthem Room Correction System is, in my opinion, a superior method to help get the best sound from your speakers and room. The onboard amplification is of excellent sonic quality and its capability is robust, belying the modest power and load ratings. You can add more power later if you need it as an extra bonus. These are things that matter in our little hobby and they translate into a longer term value for the up-front investment that you make."
"I had a great time listening to MRX 310 and it was honestly hard to send this one back when I was done. So who would pay around $1200.00 for this 5.1 channel receiver with a hell of a nice sound quality? If I was in the market……I would."
