Anthem MRX700
New line-up in the shops soon, has iPod/iPhone option, starts from £999

New from Canadian company Anthem is a four-strong range of 3D-ready AV receivers, with optional iPod/iPhone compatibility, room correction and, in all but the entry-level model, internet radio tuning.

The range starts with the £999 MRX 300, and the first two models in the shops are expected to be the MRX500 and MRX700, due very soon. All these models are seven-channel designs, with dour HDMI inputs and one output.

The range-topping MRX900 has nine channels of amplification and biamping capability, and seven HDMI inputs.

All models decode all the latest audio codecs, and have Anthem's own ARC room-correction, 1080P upconversion and second-zone audio.

And all but the entry-level model have both front and rear USB inputs, allowing music to be played from hard drives or memory keys.

More after the break

Coming soon for the range is the MDX 1 iPod/iPhone dock, powered from the receivers and offering digital connection and on-screen display. It will be released at the beginning of next year.

Distribution in the UK is via Anthem AV Solutions.
