Hello all. My first post here at Avsforum
Last week I finally got myself an Anthem MRX 300.
This was after much listening and thinking about my needs, and I ended up with the MRX, simply because it sounded best to me, and was less bloated with useless features, a thing I really apreciate. Also like the menus better. And then off course because theres ARC.
Definately a major step up from my previous Denon AVR-2808.
It works as a processor, as I have separate power amplifiers for my 5 channels.
My speakers are Dali Mentor 6 for the fronts (fantastic sounding speakers), Dali Concept Center, and Dali SR-5 surrounds. Center and surrounds are lower class than the fronts but still very fine sounding.
Tomorrow I am going to pick up my new sub (BK XXLS400 FF), and when that is proberly setup, I will post some graphs.
I have one question allready though.
A very seldom time I get a short burst of white noise from my left front speaker, for about a second. The music is still playing, the white noise is underneath it. It happens in both stereo and surround modes. I have noticed it about 5 times now, and only happens once per powerup, as far as I have heard.
I did not have this problem with any of the demo units I have had loaned (MRX500 and MRX300).
It is not a big problem, but curios anyway. Is this a bug in the 50.25 firmware? Has anybody else had the same "problem"?
In any other way, the Receiver has been perfect. I'm very very satisfied with its sound. Fantastic amount of detail, bass is plentifull yet still tight and fast.
Its an eyeopening experience hearing what ARC does to tighten up the sound, especially since my listening room is very far from perfect.
