I don't or haven't yet experience any popping or cracking with my MRX 300, but with all the cases I hope Anthem has solved all these problems with the new models but these problems happen with all AVRs my HK had a ton of problems and their customer support sucked, pretty much ignores you and hope you go away, Cambridge had a faulty video card that affected the video up scaling and OSD and they have a very useless customer support. So far the Anthem has been my only problem free AVR but I've only had it for a week now and these problems like to show up later, so we'll see what happens. But ARC is awesome and Anthem MRX are IMO with the brands I've compared it to is the best, brands I've compared it to Cambridge 551R, HK 254, Denon, Marantz and Yamaha.
