Description

The Anthem MRX 1140 is the pinnacle model of the 2021 release and the recommended choice for those seeking both premium sound and flexibility in the configuration without the necessity of separate power amps or processors. This 15.2 pre-amplifier drives 11 amplifier channels for a complete surround and action environment, whether using Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, DTS:Z pro IMAX.

An outstanding feature is the power of supply is toroidal power transformers. These transformers produce less hum, creating a perfect reproduction of sound. The toroidal power supply and the Digital-Analog Converters (DACs) help make a realistic sound with improved dynamics than their less-expensive models. And with 140-watts per channel, you’ll be able to enjoy incredible detail.

Want to stream? Apple Airplay and Airplay2 are supported. So is Google Chromecast. Spotify and Roon are also on the way, allowing your smart device to play, pause, and stream content. All MRX components support Bluetooth to stream songs stored on devices like phones, tablets, and laptops.

Speaking of devices, Anthem offers a web user interface. Using a phone, tablet, or laptop, owners can easily access any function or setting and make changes on the fly. Power the primary or second zone on and off, adjust volume, change audio modes or tweak channel trims for a perfect surround sound experience. This web UI can also calibrate speaker delays and levels and configure network settings/control options. Source devices can be renamed, simplifying set up by enabling the elimination of unused inputs. Installers can import and export files to make remote management convenient and straightforward.

Yet another feature is that the MRX 1140 has two independent outputs. That means when you employ the ARC, each subwoofer can be calibrated individually, as well as adjusting level and phase separately for more separation of light and heavy bass effects. Few AVRs at this price provide this functionality; Anthem’s MRX 740 and MRX 540 also do not.

Lastly, the Anthem MRX 1140 features external control and IP control capabilities for easy customization and compatibility with third-party integration solutions. It offers IP control capability for major third-party control devices, including Control4, Crestron, URC, and other leading smart home systems.
