Anthem is now on its third-generation of the MRX Series of high-end multi-channel AV receivers which the distributor says have built a reputation for excellent sound quality, sure footed power handling, and the ease with which they integrate into an well-rounded entertainment system.

Available in three options, all the models offer access to the recently updated ARC Genesis room correction system and full support for Dolby Vision technology via the flagship product.

Other technologies offered include Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM) and 4K pass-through with fast HDMI switching.

Pulse Cinemas says more and more of these machines are being specified by installers as the ease of use, installation and amount of control delivered impresses with each project.

ARC Genesis Compatible

As well as delivering all the channels and power needed for a high-quality home cinema experience, Pulse Cinemas also argues that Anthem has the edge when it comes to tuning the audio as well.

This in the main is down to the brand’s own room correction software, ARC Genesis.

John Bagby, MD of Paradigm, Anthem and Martin Logan brands, on a recent trip to the UK spoke about the importance of this feature and the main improvements delivered in the recent upgrade to the platform.

John said, “The ARC platform received a dramatic overhaul in the recent year. We decided to approach this from a fresh perspective and spent a great deal of time understanding the pros and cons of the legacy UI/ UX; user feedback, or voice of customer, is very important to us.

“Our objective was to improve ease of use while providing even greater customisation for our customers. In addition to many quality of life improvements, we spent time refining our proprietary algorithm for even greater results. If I had to rank the top three enhancements, it would look something like this.

“The new User Interface and User Experience; greatly simplifies the look and feel while providing easy access to commonly used features, allowing for even greater user customisation. Cross Platform Compatibility, there is even greater flexibility with OSX and Windows support.”

Thirdly, John also underlined the serious improvements offered by the ARC Genesis algorithm delivering superior results.

The Pulse Cinemas team is encouraging dealers and installers to get in touch and learn more about what the company feels is a compelling threesome of powerful and agile AV receivers.
