Anthem MRX 540 7.2 Pre-Amplifier / 5 Amplifier Channel A/V receiver with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and IMAX Enhanced 

 

The MRX 540 is the successor to the best-selling Anthem MRX 520 Home Theater Receiver. The entry-level MRX 540 delivers 100 watts per channel to 5 channels. However, it does have 7 channels of processing with Dolby Atmos so you could add a small power amp to get 5.2.2 or better yet, add the great new Anthem MCA 225 GEN 2 for your main speakers and re-route the front channels to the Atmos height channels. 

 

Anthem’s MRX A/V Receivers are about maximizing performance for the money - introducing the MRX 540 7.2 Pre-Amplifier. 7.2 Pre-Amplifier / 5 Amplifier Channel A/V receiver with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and IMAX Enhanced. 100-watts per channel continuous power into 8 ohms. Includes ARC (Anthem Room Correction). HDMI v2.1 8K Upgradeable.

 

Building on the feature set of their previous models, they’ve added the newest version of ARC Genesis, a redesigned and more accurate calibration microphone, Anthem Web User Interface, integrated streaming support, object-oriented audio codecs with support for up to 15.2 channels, and the clean power delivery Anthem is known for with up to 140 watts per channel. The MRX 540 is a great way to bring premium audio to any home theater or media room. Seamlessly integrate your smart TV or projector with 7 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs, plus eARC. Ultra HD signals are passed through unaltered up to 18.2 Gbps with Dolby Vision, HDR, and Hybrid Log-Gamma support.
