Anyone know how to interpret the .cal file format for the mic for my MRX-300? I would like to know exactly how many dBs (+ og -) the file says to correct at a given frequency, so that I can use the mic + .cal file as a sort of "neutral" mic for other purposes when recording to my pc. Anthem should just have made the .cal file a .csv or .xml file with dB corrections for each frequency.

Has anyone had a problem downloading the Arc software from the Anthem website for the MRX300? I get an error message. I inquired to Anthem and they sent a response that I could download it on the web. That is what I am trying to do! My second email to them explaining this, received no response. I no longer have the CD that came with the receiver and would like to run Arc for my new location. I hope their customer service has not gone the way of others. Thanks for any help.

I also have the MRX300. I checked just now and was able to download the "MRX 300 Software Upgrade v50.25 (120 volt)" from their support page http://www.anthemav.com/support/latest-software.php:
* Download link: http://www.anthemav.com/downloads/MRX300_US(v50.25).zip

Inside the ZIP file are:
* MRX300US(v50.25).exe
* Read Me - MRX Main Upgrade.txt

Thanks. I will give it another try from a different computer. I am running Windows 7.

Hi,

I just got my MRX 700, coming from a Denon X4000.

My question is about the sub calibration of ARC. I am using dual PSA XS30se subs. Previously, with Audyssey XT32, the level setting of each sub after running calibration was -5 for both. Note that I have configured both sub gains to have output of 75 Db prior to running Audyssey, so they are about equal in terms of output.

Now with ARC, without touching the gain settings of both subs, I just plugged them using a y-adaptor and ran ARC. ARC set the sub level at +7.

I am new to ARC so I would like to ask why the huge difference between XT32 and ARC.

Thank you.

That's a good question? The only thing that comes to mind
Is that the ARC microphone is a much higher quality mic.
Each ARC mic comes with its own unique calibration file.
(It's on the install CD) the Denon mic is mass produced and
Is used on several different models and brands.

Hope that helped a bit.
