Anthem’s New MRX SLM in Small in Size, Big on Sound

Anthem has announced its new MRX SLM, the ultimate space-saving solution that is a fraction of the size of traditional AV receivers.

The MRX SLM seamlessly integrates into any entertainment system, offering integrators the freedom to create clean and clutter-free designs without compromising audio performance.

Despite its slim profile, this powerhouse of a receiver delivers outstanding performance, says the company, including elevated surround sound and high-fidelity audio. With HDMI (HDMI 2.0b eARC, HDCP 2.3) connectivity and support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the MRX SLM ensures an unparalleled audio experience with incredible clarity.

The 5-channel (50 watts per channel) slimline receiver offers various options for enjoying your favourite music streaming services. Spotify Connect, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, and Bluetooth streaming allow you to easily listen to music from your phone, tablet, or laptop. The premium DACs from Anthem ensure that your favourite music sounds clean, detailed, and dynamic.

Anthem's Managing Director, John Bagby, told StereoNET:

The demand for efficient and space-saving solutions in the custom integrator market has never been higher. With the MRX SLM, Anthem is meeting this need head-on by delivering a product that offers unmatched performance, flexibility, and ease of integration. This device is a must-have for integrators who strive to provide their customers with the best audio experiences while maintaining a sleek and visually appealing environment.

Experience the ultimate in-room correction with ARC Genesis - the latest software that works with many ARC-enabled Anthem or Paradigm products, including the MRX SLM. ARC Genesis offers a range of advanced features that transform your listening experience like never before. With support for both Mac and Windows, and new target curve adjustment options for deep bass and high frequencies, you can easily fine-tune your system to your preferences.

The Anthem MRX SLM will be available from June/July 2024 and sell for $2,499 RRP.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
