NEW Anthem MRX Range announced including Dolby Atmos Models!

Anthem has announced the next generation of its class-leading A/V receivers, the new MRX 520, MRX 720 and flagship MRX1120.
Headline enhancements over the previous MRX Gen 2 models include Dolby Atmos decoding, DTS Play-Fi and readiness for DTS:X immersive audio decoding.
Additional channels of processing and amplification are  supplementary as you move up the line. As the model names suggest, the MRX 520 includes five channels of amplification, the MRX 720 includes seven channels of amplification and the MRX 1120 includes eleven channels of amplification, which keeps things nice and logical.

Other MRX series improvements/additions include support for the UHD video formats. As a byproduct this includes: HDMI 2.0a with HDR and HDCP 2.2 support, 18.2 Gbps switching, 4:4:4 at 4K60, 10 bits, BT.2020 and more.

For hi-res audio replay (hifi quality sound has always been a hallmark of the MRX range!)  there are premium-quality differential-output D/A converters with 32-bit conversion and sampling rate-optimised filters. As you go up through the range further improvements in the power supplies ensures getting the most out of these upgrades. The legendary ARC Room Correction Software, has been improved with even more sophisticated correction algorithms, memory for four speaker configurations for greater flexibility, and an easier to use Targets panel for custom settings.

Also breaking new ground is the inclusion of DTS Play-Fi technology (MRX 720 and MRX 1120 only), where you can stream music over a Wi-Fi network to any number of connected speakers once paired with the Play-Fi app.

Model Specifics:
MRX 520
The MRX 520 includes 5 channels of amplification, 5.1-channel processing and seven (rear) HDMI inputs (including one with MHL support), three optical, two coaxial, and five stereo analogue inputs. It has two parallel HDMI outputs (one with Audio Return Channel), an optical output that passes through optical and coaxial input, pre-outs for all channels including two parallel subwoofer outputs, line output, and Zone 2 output.

MRX 720
The MRX 720 includes 7 channels of amplification, suitable for driving 7.1, 5.1.2, and 5.1 plus zone 2 speaker systems. With external amplification for height speakers the main pre-outs can be used for 7.1.4-channel systems. It expands upon HDMI connectivity by adding a front HDMI input which also supports MHL. Other standout features include Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive audio decoding (DTS:X via a future software update). DTS Play-Fi wireless multiroom-audio technology is also built in. Users can use the wireless network connection to run the Anthem Room Correction system.

MRX 1120
The lineup’s flagship model is the MRX 1120, which includes all of the benefits of the MRX 720 plus more channels than ever before in Anthem’s MRX line-up of A/V receivers - 11.1 channels of processing and a rare 11 channels of amplification, all through a toroidal power supply. The internal amplification can be configured for up to 7.1.4 speakers or 5.1.4/7.1.2 plus zone 2.
