Anthem’s research and engineering division, sequestered in the epicentre of the Canadian tech industry, Ottawa, Canada, is the driving force behind the revolutionary MDX Series. Anthem’s Engineers spent over 2 years developing MDX and its myriad of features including Anthem Room Correction Technology for each zone.
Nothing could be simpler than on-site configuration and calibration using our intuitive Web-based controls.
The specially designed, adaptive user interface works on any device. Custom configure zones, from input assignments to zone names. Adjust levels (and every aspect of performance) independently.
Robust IP/RS-232 connection capability ensures compatibility with leading home automation systems, with easily downloaded drivers.
Drivers available for these systems:
Dedicated Subwoofers For Each Zone
Install and control subwoofers independently in separate zones, with dedicated outputs (both low and high level, including bridge mode), and zone-independent settings for the new, more advanced Anthem Room Correction (ARC® Genesis).
Toggle ARC Genesis on/off in each zone to hear the benefits of premium room optimization.
