I would never recommend an Anthem receiver after reading the owner comments about all of their problems with them.
I suggest you do some research on that and then you will not be interested in Anthem any more.
The Home Theater review on the Anthem 300 also reveals that its actual power output is absurdly low; lower than most $500 receivers. That convinces me that Anthem receiver specs are even more absurd than most, and that their prices are ridiculous for what you get.
For around $1200, you can get the Cambridge Audio 551R receiver, which is the best-sounding HT receiver I have ever heard.
Check out the Home Theater magazine review, and you will see that they agree.
