Anthem MRX 1140 Receiver

Anthem’s top of the line eleven channel receiver.

The MRX 1140 is the successor to the best-selling Anthem MRX 1120 Home Theater Receiver. If you are building a full-blown Dolby Atmos home theater with 11 or more main speakers, the MRX 1140 is a fantastic choice from both a sound and flexibility standpoint. It will cost less than adding a separate power amp or amps to the MRX 740 to get to 11 channels and will drive most speakers with ease.
