Anthem MRX700 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver - Product Review


The MRX700 delivers more-than-enough power for most rooms and provides exceptional sound. Practical features I really liked included: Comprehensive audio processing options, analog-to-HDMI video conversion and upscaling, 3D pass-through, and Anthem...

Anthem MRX 700 AV Receiver Reviewed


Andrew Robinson was a little skeptical about the Anthem MRX 700 AV receiver, thinking that the price and features didn't quite add up. But after he put the receiver through its paces, he saw that the MRX 700 is greater than the sum of its parts.

Anthem MRX700 review

Fantastically engaging sound; excellent ARC EQ system; exceptional build

Complex to set up, frugal features; low HDMI count

Anthem MRX 700 review


With its quirky and complex setup, the ARC-based 7.1-channel AV receiver causes audio-induced euphoria

Anthem MRX 700 AV Receiver


Surround sound Canadian style

Sound Quality ; Superb room correction ; Discrete Look ; Custom Install and input configuration flexibility

Anthem MRX 700 AV receiver


This Canadian AV receiver makes some unusual but sensible choices in set-up and implementation, and proves a powerful performer.
