Anthem is also one of the brands I'm looking at for electronics. What do you think of the MRX-1140? Have the bugs been worked out with their room correction software on it?
So far the 1140 has performed well. It certainly sounds great and matches the neutral sound of my SVS system. It's also Canadian so it checks that box for me (and I got it locally at quite a good price considering it was brand new and virtually out of stock elsewhere in North America).
I did not encounter any of the bugs that were reported. In fairness the software and firmware were both updated about a week after my purchase, but even the "old" beta ARC worked for me the very first time. I ran the software a second time this past weekend and it still worked great (I ran it a second time because I moved a few things in the room).
The HDMI handshaking is a tad slow, but it could be that my projector is the "slow link" in the chain (though it was speedy when paired with my old Denon). I blame HDCP.
