The Anthem MRX 710 A/V Receiver On The Bench

At 1 kHz with an analog input, THD+N was 0.016455%. We see a lot of even and odd harmonics as well, which average about 87 dB below 0 dBFS.

At 10 kHz with an analog input, THD+N was 0.014947%.

Here are the results for 19 kHz, 20 kHz combined test frequencies with an analog input. There is a small visible B-A peak at 1 kHz about 89 dB below 0 dBFS. We see distortion spurs at the higher frequencies with the largest peak being at 18 kHz and 68 dB below 0 dBFS.

The IMD measurement with an analog input was 0.019503%. We have a second order harmonic out at 14 kHz that is 90 dB below 0 dBFS.

At 1 kHz with a digital input, THD+N was 0.012250%. We see fewer even and odd harmonics as well, which average about 87 dB below 0 dBFS.

At 10 kHz with a digital input, THD+N was 0.002911%.

Here are the results for 19 kHz, 20 kHz combined test frequencies with a digital input. There is a small visible B-A peak at 1 kHz about 94 dB below 0 dBFS. We see distortion spurs at the higher frequencies with the largest peak being at 18 kHz and 68 dB below 0 dBFS.

The IMD measurement with a digital input was 0.008515%. We see some distortion spurs in the spectrum with the spur at 15 kHz being 90 dB below 0 dBFS.

On the video side of things, the MRX 710 passed all of our standard deinterlacing and color space tests. I was not able to look at component video processing on the MRX 710 since I no longer have a reference player with component video output.
