Experience the breathtaking power and multi-channel flexibility of Anthem’s NEW Third Generation MRX Series of AV Receivers.

Anthem’s award-winning Third Generation MRX Series of high-end multi-channel A/V receivers are known the world over for their excellent sound quality, efficient power handling, and the ease with which they integrate into an entertainment system. The MRX Series is packed with exclusive audio innovations like Anthem Room Correction (ARC) Technology and Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM) Technology, 4K Pass-Through with fast HDMI switching and more.

Anthem Room Correction (ARC)

Anthem Room Correction does just that; it corrects the effects that reflective surfaces like walls, floors and ceilings have on the sound from your loudspeaker. Removing these effects allows you to hear your sound in any room the way it was intended to be heard.

Anthem engineers realized that real world listening experiences had little in common with the controlled environment of the audio lab, and that’s because even the best loudspeakers are affected by room anomalies like furniture. These obstacles cause standing waves, resonances, and reflections that can color the sound you hear; imagine the sound waves coming from your speakers as ripples on a water surface. Imagining it this way allows you to create an image of how the ripples bounce off the obstacles in their path, and makes it clear why the obstacles should be removed.

Limitless music. App-controlled convenience. Wireless connectivity.

Everyone wants instant access to their digital audio library, anywhere in the home. And Anthem’s MRX Series with DTS Play-Fi® technology is the perfect, high performance means of delivery. Anthem MRX Series can take full dynamic advantage of the better-than-CD-quality sound quality delivered by the DTS Play-Fi® streaming technology.

Partnered With the Leader in Wi-Fi Streaming

Partnered with the leader in Wi-Fi streaming, DTS Play-Fi wi-fi streaming technology supports a host of high quality file formats. Controlled directly from your smart device or computer in any operating system, the “Open Ecosystem” of DTS Play-Fi technology makes it easy to stream music throughout your home, and to add more wireless streaming devices on the fly.

Works with Alexa

Anthem DTS Play-Fi products now have “Works with Alexa” certification, meaning they can be controlled using voice commands given to an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Fire TV Cube, or other Alexa voice command-enabled device. Alexa functionality is activated by using the Alexa app to enable the DTS Play-Fi skill. This links your Alexa account to "Works with Alexa" DTS Play-Fi compatible products like this one.

After installing the skill, Alexa will know your speaker by name and allow you to control volume and playback functions such as track skip, mute, pause, and stop or request a song to play in a specific room or group of rooms linked together. Once an Alexa voice command is used to start audio playback, the DTS Play-Fi app can be used to dynamically add more products to the streaming session. Additionally, Alexa's Routines feature can be used to create events that initiate audio playback on your DTS Play-Fi speaker, such as setting up your speaker to work as an alarm clock by starting your favorite song.

"Overall, the Anthem MRX 1120 is a fabulously effective AV receiver, and Anthem’s sophisticated room correction is astonishingly effective. Once dialed in, the AVR sounds beautifully precise and balanced. Soundtracks are tight and involving: bass is deep and granite hard, while dialogue remains crisp and articulate. While this receiver may not tick all the feature boxes of better-known competitors, it delivers absolutely where it counts. This is surround sound unbound. And it’s glorious."

"The MRX 1120, through countless hours of music listening and movie watching, provided the escape I was looking for without introducing any of the fatigue I’ve experienced with lesser products. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better-sounding solution short of going with separates. Highly recommended."

"In many ways, Anthem has redefined expectations around home cinema. For many brands, the category has simply become an arms race about features and functionality. Anthem has stripped all that back to offer a sublime level of performance allied to a truly sensational calibration and room EQ solution. The result is a fabulous home cinema centrepiece."

"To put not too fine a point on it, the Anthem MRX 1120 is the best home theater receiver that I have had the pleasure of ever using. It looks deceptively simple on the outside and while it might not have every last bell and whistle that some of its competitors do, the features it does have are the ones that matter and are well thought out. It’s defining characteristic though is its sound quality and the MRX 1120 is truly top shelf in this regard. I don’t think I’d be overstating it if I said that the sound quality you get from this unit is comparable to having separates from some other manufacturers"

"I only hesitate to call the MRX 1120's stereo performance "perfect" out of fear that Anthem will top it with its inevitable fourth-generation MRX lineup and I'll have to eat my words."
