I've had the MRX-500 for a couple of days now, and consider it to be a very nice upgrade over my previous receiver (Denon 4306). Just ran into my first problem tonight when I was trying to playback DVD-A & SACD via my Oppo DV-970HD. Hooked up over HDMI (same as with the 4306), and configured to send Multi-Channel PCM over the HDMI connection. Whenever I try to playback either a MCH SACD or DVD-A, it is always being sent to the MRX as 2.0 channel PCM, and I'm unable to force MCH playback. I've looked through the setup for the MRX and Oppo and can't find anything that affects or changes playback, before I contact Anthem Tech Support, I was wondering if anyone has any ideas I might try.
Ive been a big lurker here for awhile now and just this February I bought a Denon 4311 with the pro kit. I always felt even after the calibration I wasn't getting the best sound possible. But I am considering it and going the Anthem/ARC route. I know a few people who own the D2V and I absolutely love the sharpness and sound of thier setup and I can see a lot of people are referring to the MRX series having that "ANTHEM" sound signature.
I do not use any of the bells and whistles on the 4311 which is making me think, I should get rid of it and get something which just gives me what I want....sound quality.
The only thing that is stopping me from going the MRX route is that it's a 7.1 receiver and I am running 2 Seaton Sound Submersives.....would I need to buy a splitter or is this receiver only good for a one sub setup?

Let me know if you have come from a Denon 4311 and have seen a vast improvement in sound quality. I might just go the MRX 500 route since I dont need much amplification power since Im running actives and I dont use HD radio.
Thanks in advance,
