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 🙂

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Roselands State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Looking for funds to upgrade Further information: Purchased 1 year ago from Addicted to Audio. 1st and only owner. Best way to describe the condition is I can pack it back up in the original box and and sell it as brand new, it's that perfect. The photos can be deceiving but it's just the dust that makes it appear as dirty or with marks. It has been paired with a Schiit Yggdrasil Amplifier. At this price point, I am yet to find a better headphone amplifier, and believe me, I've tried lots of them. It comes with all the original paperwork, the original box and the original power cable which is still brand new (I used another power cable). This is an incredible headphone amplifier and I can assure you, you will not be disappointed, not to mention that this amp is very rarely listed privately and for a good price. I am open to reasonable offers but please, no low balls. If any more information is required please send me a message, I usually respond very quickly. Thank you.

      The Rotel RB-1582 MKII amp (RRP $2799) is in perfect working condition and is pristine in appearance.  The unit was purchased from a local dealer in late 2018. My job roles changed since the purchase and I barely have time with my gears since.
      The unit is extremely well taken care of and was covered with cloth while not in use (I tend to be away from home for weeks!).
      The amp is barely used for 120 hrs in total. So, make sure you allow more burn-in time.
      I have all the original boxes, manuals etc.

      Note: Priority will be given to the buyer of both the Rotel RB-1582 MKII amp AND Rotel RC-1572 preamp (see another ad). Further discounts will be given if buyer purchases both units.
       
      Details:
       
      Rotel’s largest stereo amplifier at 200 watts per channel provides the massive current to drive the very largest hi-fi systems effortlessly. And like its smaller brother, the RB-1582 MKII has been designed to excel at resolving the subtle details in music as well as supplying the brawn required for extremely dynamic passages. It is able to achieve this difficult dual requirement because of the meticulous attention paid to circuit design and parts selection.

      The RB-1582 MKII ‘s high-end performance begins with an extremely large toroidal transformer combined with a total of 60,000uF storage capacity in special “slit foil” capacitors to provide completely stable power to the output stage. Slit foil capacitors have the ability to charge and discharge extremely quickly, thereby ensuring signal fidelity during orchestral crescendos or repetitive kick-drum impacts, for example. Both left and right channel construction are laid out in a mono block design (after the toroidal transformer) and all grounding is terminated in a star pattern on a copper grounding plate to ensure low signal to noise. The output stage is a discrete design that consists of 10 high current bipolar transistors per channel. Input options consist of both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors.
       
      The RB-1582 stereo power amplifier is yet another outstanding example of Rotel’s Balanced Design Concept and will form the heart of a very impressive stereo or home theater system for years to come.

      Item: Lyngdorf TDAI-3400 Amplifier
      Price Range: reasonable market value - more info below
      Item Condition: Demo or used
      Extra Info: Got the little brother (TDAI-2170) and looking to give this one a shot to try the more flexible EQ and for some extra grunt and the handy web-interface.
       
      Price depends on age, condition, remaining warranty,  optional modules and packaging/accessories included. Ideally somewhere between 5k and 7.5k, but shoot me a PM if you got one for sale regardless, happy to consider all (or haggle 😀).
