    I'm currently using a Pioneer VSX LX 53 with my Monitor Audio RX 7.1 speaker set up and was wondering if the Anthem MRX 700 would be a good upgrade?

    I watch films and listen to music.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    If you can find the MRX700 available it would be a fantastic upgrade for the RX speakers. You may find second hand ones available if people have traded up to the new MRX510 or MRX710. Alternatively we have new MRX500's available at a heavy discount.

    Bear in mind that the MRX700/500 need pc/laptop set-up but it is well worth the effort.

    Better power supply, Class A/B, ARC and preamp stage.

    Better sound for sure. Only thing that lets it down its WAF. 80s cassette deck looks...

    Thanks for your reply.

    I'm picking a second hand MRX 700 up later for £850.

    Looking forward to setting it up tomorrow with the ARC software and my laptop.

    Spent the day setting the MRX 700 up using the ARC software.
    After the odd tweak here and there I'm really pleased with
    the upgrade in sound quality using the Monitor Audio RX speakers.

    Great amp!
