Anthem has been building incredible products for over 20 years. One thing that has made them so successful is that they stick to a few simple design principles. One, they are not big on gimmicks. Rather than spend money on all the latest gizmos and features that most people will never use or need, they put that money into the most important design elements that give the best performance of the product. They also go all out in terms of their amplifier design. The ampfliers in the Anthem receivers are very beefy compared to the most of the other brands in the market place. What that means for you is great sound at any volume level. Ever notice when you turn your current receiver past half way it starts to really sound bad? What you are hearing is distortion from the amp because you are pushing it past its limits. That won’t happen with the Anthem receivers, their amps are built to give quality sound at any volume.

Put that all together and Anthem makes arguably the best value in the home theater market today.

The Anthem MRX 520 is the entry model in their line of receivers. It’s perfect for the individual that is not using a 7.1 set up and they just want to improve their overall experience with their home theater. Check out the features and specs below.
