Anthem MRX 740 8K 11.2 Pre-Amplifier / 7 Amplifier Channels AV Receiver

Product Descriptions

Anthem MRX 740 8K 11.2 Pre-Amplifier / 7 Amplifier Channels AV Receiver

The MRX 740-8K is the successor to the best-selling Anthem MRX 720 Home Theater Receiver. This is the model we think will be our most popular one. It has seven powered channels built-in, offering 140 watts per channel. The amp section is a lot beefier than the MRX 540 so you will get better dynamics and speaker control with the MRX 740. 

Anthem - Pute Performance, Pure Value

Anthem's MRX A/V Receivers are about maximizing audio performance that previously has been unobtainable at their respective price points. Building on the feature set of our previous models, we've added the newest version of ARC Genesis, a redesigned and more accurate calibration microphone, Anthem's Web User Interface, integrated streaming support, object-oriented audio codecs with support for up to 15.2 channels and the clean power delivery Anthem is known for with up to 140 watts per channel. 


The MRX 540, 740 and 1140 are a great way to bring premium audio to any home theater or media room. Seamlessly integrate your smart TV or projector with 7 dedicated 8K HDMI inputs that support 8K/60Hz or 4K/120Hz pass-through and 3 dedicated outputs with eARC. With MRX, you can enjoy 8K quality video from all of your 8K source devices in amazing clarity.   

Complexity Simplified

At Anthem, our goal is to shape how you interact with your technology, so we went the extra mile to ensure no detail is overlooked while providing the utmost flexibility when it comes to device setup. Using a phone, tablet or laptop, owners can easily access any function or setting and make changes on the fly. Power the primary or secondary zone on and off, adjust volume, change audio modes, tweak channel trims and more, for a perfect surround sound experience. You're in control, and it's never been easier.

The On-Screen User-Interface Re-Invented

The Anthem Web User Interface was specially designed for easy setup. Nothing could be more simple than on-site configuration and calibration using our intuitive web based controls. The specially designed, adaptive web based user interface works on any device. Custom configure everything the new AVM/MRX series has to offer.
