Does anyone know if a standard issue RS232 to USB cable will work for setting up ARC? I have access to one of these.
I'd be curious to know your impressions of mrx500 vs avp700 SQ wise. I'm coming from an Arcam AVR350. It doesn't fit my needs any longer either. Sonds great though.
Is there any confirmation that the only real differences between the mrx300, 500, and 700 are features and power? If the pre stages are the exact same I could go for a 300 over 500 with my 3 ch amp. Save some cash.
Do they all have the same amps with different implimintations? i.e. power supplies, transformer, secondaries etc...
Can you override any arc settings? crossover setting? never owned an anthem.
There aren't any M.CH analog inputs (300/500), right? Just 700? I'm currently using my oppo 83 5.1 outs with my avr 350.
