The MDX Series of distribution systems from Anthem Electronics features advanced DSP processing, matrix switching, and Anthem amplification technology.
MDX includes 60 Watts (8 Ohms)/120 Watts (4 Ohms) with all channels driven, or bridges to provide 200 Watts (8 Ohms) to provide eight or 16 channels of Ultra-Class-D amplification, each supported by Advanced Load Monitoring technology.
The series also provide Independent Anthem Room Correction (ARC), bass management, bass/treble adjustments, and level control settings for each zone, as well as full digital/analog matrix switching to allow any analog RCA, digital coaxial, or digital optical input to be assigned to any output–either pre-configured via the web interface or switched in real-time via IP/RS-232 connection capability ensures compatibility with leading home automation systems, with easily downloaded drivers, including Control4, Crestron, Elan, RTI, Savant, and URC.
MDX are the first distribution solutions to offer the ability to expand a system by adding external subwoofers. This is accomplished through either an RCA connection to a powered subwoofer or external sub amplifier; or by assigning a zone’s output to power a subwoofer. Any subwoofer attached to an MDX also benefits from Anthem Room Correction, which not only corrects acoustic output for an ideal response but also sets bass management settings (including subwoofer phase) for a flawless transition to the main speakers.
Zones can have custom names, multiple inputs, independent playback, and tuning controls and can bridge for more power. Subwoofer bass management is available in any zone and allows users to set the crossover frequency, level, phase, and polarity. Only the MDX Series gives listeners this much control over multiple zones, supporting creative system designs and thrilling audio performance.
Full digital/analog matrix switching allows a user to assign any analog RCA, digital coaxial or digital optical input to any output, either pre-configured via the web interface or switched in real-time via IP commands.
