I agree this site has gotten me into a lot of trouble,  people are very passionate about the products they purchase but hey it's fun trying different stuff.

Holy Hell, just give your Anthem a chance, if set up correctly it will do a good job in 2 channel and no reason to look further, the so called fancy Room Correction actually works a treat  for home theatre and at this price point is the best, 2 channel doesn't need this and you have the option to bye pass it all together, this is one of the better all rounders if you'll just give it a chance and learn it's features

Sorry but I have gone back to my first true love, Integra :popcorn::wub: tried to get a Yamaha 3070 but unfortunately the 2 HiFi stores that had them and for the price we agreed on are stuck in back in time and don't accept Paypal as a payment option, pathetic.I have a grand plan which is being worked on at the moment.

We all know Anthem is an outstanding product and the buyer of mine will be extremely happy but for me the fancy room correction systems like ARC and Audyssey just don't sit well with me.

Oh okay,  I once loved the Yamaha System as well and felt uncomfortable moving on to the Anthem System, end of the day I gave it a chance and have been delighted with it, all good and see ya, this has been interesting for sure and thanks!!

Does a grand plan mean a final plan or just another plan? Going integra does sound like a solid plan though considering you've owned a few. :thumb:

Gee whiz you all told me to get a Anthem now you are all telling me to get a Yamaha :ohmy: if the Anthem sells than I would give the Yamaha a go. The lack of fancy room correction in the Yamaha does appeal. Maybe some one can do a swap.

I'm sure between @digitalhome and myself one of us at least could be interested to do a swap with you for your Anthem, trying different systems is always a good thing I reckon and I have two 3060's so maybe a Anthem might be a good thing to try out.

I'm not a wealthy man so unfortunately the Anthem left me with no funds for a dac or streamer as I think this is what it needed connected to its analog inputs.

At least with the Integra's I know music was very good over HDMI and you could use a direct mode with digital inputs or use stereo mode with subs. I am also now left with funds for a dac or streamer if needed.

I will also be getting a couple more smaller Integra's for multi room audio when moved into new house, this is a cheaper and better quality option than the multi room products that are out there.

OK no more posting in this thread as I don't own one anymore.

Just for the record the Anthem was amazing for surround channel stuff and even my 8 year old is upset it's gone also almost got divorced as well.

Let me get this right, I admit I might have this right or maybe wrong, but after six odd months of buying and selling various AVR's and other bits of gear you are back where you started with a Integra AVR?

 

If I got it wrong please feel free to correct me.

The only thing you have wrong is the six months bit more like 3 years :) Yeah I was always surprised by the integra's performance, my biggest wow moment was going from a Yamaha A2000 to an Integra 30.5 with poweramp for front channels so got me thinking that much more expensive and highly regarded AVR's much be so much better again. Yes some were slightly better in some areas but would loose a lot of flexibility and functionality but yes I really am thinking about a multiroom setup in a new home and I already have the IT cabinet so the Integra's are perfect for that. It really has just has been about trying as much as i can while renting as I don't have much else to do.

Hi Club Anthem...Can you help me please?

 

I'm looking for a new AVR at home. I have a thread on this here:

 

But in short my front room houses a PJ setup (no likelihood of 4k in the next few years) and 7 channel surround (the 4 surrounds are in ceiling and the front 3 are not changing any time soon, so not worried about Atmos etc) along with my diy subs. I have a decent 2 channel poweramp for the fronts and the whole system is probably used as a 60/40 split for music/ht. That said at least half of both uses is 'non critical' - i.e midweek netflix viewing and regular music playback that is often for ambience etc...

 

So - I have a shortlist of AVR type solutions and i think the 510 or 710 could fit my needs (no need to go to the '20 series as i am not upgrading the pj to 4k anytime soon or worried about the new formats of Atmos and DTSX etc).

 

Can anyone advise me of which will better fit my system and needs? The 710 can be had refurbed with warranty for $1500 and the 510 just under $1200.

I'm looking to pull the pin shortly and want to know if in my circumstance i should spring the extra for the 710?

 

Appreciate any advice or experiences...

 

TIA

for 4 surrounds, you will need the 710 I think.

I have a 720, and the amps are not assignable.

If you buy the 510, you will need to use your power amp for the rear surrounds (assuming there are pre-outs for it)

@yamapro The 510 and 710 are identical other than additional power for 710 & toroidal power supply.

 

Please have a look at MRX-510 Specs, MRX-710 Specs.  Check also MRX-510 gallery and look at the back panel; it has 7 amplified channels : Surround R & L, centre, front R & L, Back R & L (and looks identical to MRX-710).  You can use the front L & R pre-outs to feed your 2 channel power amp.

Thanks @Snoopy8

I've been reading through the Anthem MRX 310/510/710 thread on here and every review i can find and the AVS forum wealth of knowledge...

I initially thought the 510 would be right for me BUT even though I won't be using the front LR amps i do prefer the thought of a nice big Toroid :D

As the 710 is available for 'only' $300 more than the 510 now, I am most likely to just buy that and be done with it! :D

Thanks for your help on both threads!

Does anyone else have issues with their receiver becoming completely unresponsive to any buttons and being stuck turned on?
Have had it happen 3 times now, using buttons on remote or on actual unit do nothing. Latest time it turned on and was still playing sound, but have to turn off via the wall.
Wondering if it is some kind of HDMI handshake issue or something. I use a Logitech harmony remote for everything

Interestingly has only ever happened when it has been my wife using the thing. Never me, maybe she is pressing the "watch TV" button wrong

Been using a Harmony remote with my 710 and no problems. Your better half may not be pointing the remote long enough at the unit?  Try adding a short delay and teaching the wife to point the remote longer.

The confusion is due to Anthem numbering. The 310 became the 520 and the 510 became the 720...

      Hi,
      I’m a bit confused about this now, because I’ve gotten different answers.
       
       
      I am using the HDMI arc connection ( it’s the only HDMI out) (Denon avr-x1600h) connected to the HDMI arc on my tv ( Panasonic fz950 OLED  (which is full bandwidth)
       
      I have my 4K blu ray player and PS4 Pro connected to my avr HDMI ports.
       
       
      When I’m playing a 4K movie with Atmos on my blu-ray player, am I getting it down-converted to something lower quality, or full lossless atmos?

      I understand that playing something from my tv, eg the Netflix app, I wont be able to get Atmos.
       
       Eg;
       
      When playing a movie with atmos connected to the  HDMI ARC port of my tv, my AVR says Dolby Atmos – True HD.
       
      Now when playing it on the HDMI non arc port, it says the say thing, Dolby Atmos -True HD.
       
       Everything sounds the same.

      Don't know how to explain this but here goes.
       
      I have an Anthem 720 together with 7.1 speakers plus a Panasonic TV plus just purchased an Apple 4K TV device.
       
      Netflix via the TV and the Anthem the sound is awesome, and when I press the mode button it says it is playing in surround sound.
       
      Netflix via the Apple 4K TV it says Dolby Atmos but the sound is no where as good. It stutters and sounds awful and you have to turn the volume up so much to get anywhere close to the same via Netflix on my TV.
       
      Any ideas what this could be?
       
      Cheers

      Hi
       
      I have recently purchased an Anthem MRX 720 AVR however i need another 2 channel amp to power my two additional outdoor speakers.
       
      My speakers are PSB CS1000 https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/product/psb-cs1000-outdoor-speakers/
       
      They are way too overkill for outdoors due to neighbours and not being able to talk so I dont need to play them really loud etc.
       
      Any recommendations for a 2 channel amp to connect to my Anthem to power these?
       
      I used my Anthem currently to power 2 x floor standing speakers, center, sub and 4 x In ceiling speakers.
       
      Cheers
