Anthem’s MRX A/V Receivers are about maximizing performance for the money. Building on the feature set of our previous models, we’ve added the newest version of ARC Genesis, a redesigned and more accurate calibration microphone, Anthem Web User Interface, integrated streaming support, object-oriented audio codecs with support for up to 15.2 channels and the clean power delivery Anthem is known for with up to 140 watts per channel.


The MRX 540, 740 and 1140 are a great way to bring premium audio to any home theater or media room. Seamlessly integrate your smart TV or projector with 7 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs, plus eARC. Ultra HD signals are passed through unaltered up to 18.2 Gbps with Dolby Vision, HDR and Hybrid Log Gamma support.

Anthem MRX-540 Home Theatre Receiver

 

 

The MRX 540 is the successor to the best-selling Anthem MRX 520 Home Theater Receiver. The entry-level MRX 540 delivers 100 watts per channel to 5 channels. However, it does have 7 channels of processing with Dolby Atmos so you could add a small power amp to get 5.2.2 or better yet, add the great new Anthem MCA 225 MKII for your main speakers and re-route the front channels to the Atmos height channels. ARC (Anthem Room Correction) speaker calibration (microphone and software included).

Anthem MRX-740 Home Theatre Receiver

 

The MRX 740 is the successor to the best-selling Anthem MRX 720 Home Theater Receiver. This is the model we think will be our most popular one. It has seven powered channels built-in, offering 140 watts per channel. The amp section is a lot beefier than the MRX 540 so you will get better dynamics and speaker control with the MRX 740.

140 watts per channel into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 1% THD with 2 channels driven

Dolby ATMOS® and DTS® surround sound decoding

Anthem MRX-1140 Home Theater Receiver

 

The MRX 1140 is the successor to the best-selling Anthem MRX 1120 Home Theater Receiver. If you are building a full-blown Dolby Atmos home theater with 11 or more main speakers, the MRX 1140 is a fantastic choice from both a sound and flexibility standpoint. It will cost less than adding a separate power amp or amps to the MRX 740 to get to 11 channels and will drive most speakers with ease.

 

11-channel amplifier

140 watts per channel into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 1% THD with 2 channels driven

Class AB amplification for channels 1-5, 140 watts with 2 channels driven

Class D amplification for channels 6-11, 60 watts per channel with 2 channels driven

Dolby ATMOS® and DTS® surround sound decoding

ARC (Anthem Room Correction) speaker calibration (microphone and software included)
