The youngest of three born after the Anthem MRX 500 and MRX 700 AV receivers, the MRX 300 packs a processing punch with upscaling to 1080p 60hz, composite/component video to HDMI conversion, a dual-processor audio DSP and decoding for all the major audio formats. With inputs that include four HDMI, seven analog video, five digital audio and seven stereo analog RCA, the MRX 300 is an entry-level AV hub that should satisfy any connection need.

3D Firmware Update
Not everyone loves a 3D experience at home, but quality receivers need to be equipped for the challenge. A free firmware upgrade released on the Anthem website gives entertainment enthusiasts a reason to expand beyond the second dimension, since all MRX models can now process 3D source material.

3D firmware upgrades for all MRX models can be found on the Anthem software updates page.

The MRX 300 is now shipping and has an MSRP of $999. More information on Anthem can be found at www.anthemAV.com.
