I am a MRX-1120 owner, but since that is really a "bigger" version of the 720, I will chime in here.
I did have an initial issue out of the box with a very loud "POP" sound after the receiver turned off. It took a little bit, but Anthem got me squared away. I have since chalked it up to being an early adopter of a new product and have not have that issue, or any other issue, since.
Some people talk about network connectivity problems, but I've never experienced it and there are some firmware updates designed to address the issues that were reported.
Outside of that, I really like the 1120. I have never purchased a receiver that cost this much, and I know that I could have found a solution cheaper elsewhere that would get me to 7.1.4, but I wanted a single box running it all.
ARC is super easy to use, and the impact is quite impressive.
Previously I was using an Onkyo TX-NR709, which I really liked Audyssey on for a 7.1 setup. It was a solid receiver for me, but the sound quality out of the Anthem is just amazing.
