Anthem MRX 720 and additional 2 channel amp

Recommended Posts

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

Seriously consider a blue sound powernode. 

Will be so much easier than switching zones on an AVR, and convenient app control of playlists and volume whilst outside.

Cheers buddy but that is way way more than I want to spend to power my outdoor speakers.

They come up pretty cheap on the classifieds, keep an eye out there.

Buy a decent power amp to run your main speakers and use a couple of channels of your AVR for outside.

Give the more important speakers the better amplification.

 

Your Anthem should allow this configuration if it's amps are assignable and it offers outputs for another "Zone".

BTW........I'm pretty certain that your Sub is powering itself!!!!

My Anthem has enough power for me. Just want something small and cheap to power the outdoor ones.

 

yes, the Sub is powering itself 🙂
