Anthem’s entry-level receiver is no slouch and the 3D upgrade is an optional add-on for those who already own an MRX and look good in glasses.
Toronto, Canada – March 1, 2011 – Anthem, the leading manufacturer of high-end electronics for music, home theater and distributed audio systems, announces the availability of the MRX 300 receiver with seven channels of amplification, four HDMI inputs and the ability to run Anthem Room Correction (ARC) software along with a new 3D firmware upgrade. It also has HD radio.
The youngest of three born after the Anthem MRX 500 and MRX 700 AV receivers, the MRX 300 packs a processing punch with upscaling to 1080p 60hz, composite/component video to HDMI conversion , a dual-processor audio DSP and decoding for all the major audio formats. With inputs galore including four HDMI, seven analog video, five digital audio and seven stereo analog RCA, the MRX 300 is an entry-level AV hub with the heart and innards of a flagship.
The MRX 300 is now shipping and has an MSRP of $999. More information on Anthem can be found here.
Not everyone loves a 3D experience at home, but quality receivers need to be equipped for the challenge. A free firmware upgrade released on the Anthem website gives entertainment enthusiasts a reason to expand beyond the second dimension, since all MRX models can now process 3D source material.
3D firmware upgrades for all MRX models can be found on the Anthem software updates page.
