Advanced Load Monitoring (ALM) Technology
Anthem's exclusive ALM circuitry protects the amplifier's sensitive output devices by constantly monitoring temperature, current, and voltage to ensure optimum long-term performance. ALM is totally non-invasive; it is not in the signal path and only engages in the most extreme circumstances to protect the amplifier from damage by maintaining the safe operating area of the output devices.

Audiophile-Grade Components

All this results in long-term quality, satisfaction, and reliability.

ARC (Anthem Room Correction) Genesis
ARC Genesis(for Windows PC and Mac) is a proprietary calibration tool that automatically shapes the acoustic signature of your speakers for the best possible sound quality in your unique listening space. ARC Geneis Beta allows you to quickly and accurately optimize the performance of your audio equipment to better suit the unique parameters of your room. By listening to your room's acoustic signature, ARC Genesis Beta can tune your equipment to correct for the performance-robbing effects (reflections, resonances, standing waves, etc.) of the various surfaces and other obstacles in your room. ARC Genesis Beta is easy to use, and just a few simple steps can optimize your speakers for your unique listening space. ARC Genesis Beta is one of the most sophisticated, accurate, and detailed digital room correction technologies available today.

eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel)
This feature of the AV surround receiver's main HDMI monitor output allows audio to be sent from your compatible TV to the receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your TV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television. eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) will support uncomprerssed audio formats like Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, & DTS HD Master Audio - where as the previous ARC (Audio Return Channel) was limited to only Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, DTS HD, and PCM.

Remastered 4K/HDR Video
It utilizes a sophisticated, advanced algorithm designed to produce the highest-quality, sharpest 4K HDR images. This advanced process accurately reduces noise and grain under the filmmaker's guidance to best optimize the content for a much higher quality, higher brightness 4K HDR display format. Select IMAX Enhanced titles that were shot with IMAX cameras or specially formatted for IMAX theatres will also include an expanded aspect ratio for the film's home release to show your more picture on your TV. IMAX Enhanced certified TVs must be at least 65" with support for HDR10 and dynamic, as well as specific calibration, resolution, color, brightness, contrast, and scale of image capabilities.

Three HDMI Outputs
The Anthem MRX 1140 is equipped with three HDMI outputs (Main, Parallel, and Zone 2) that support up to 4K. The Main and Parallel HDMI outputs distribute the same audio/video signal simultaneously to two separate displays.
