I'm currently using an Onkyo TX-SR876, for home theater and music, which I am very happy with. I have an opportunity to buy a mint Anthem MRX 510 for a great price, an exclusive Canadian brand which is known for their high quality separates. Suggestions or experience with Anthem would be greatly appreciated!

I have owned and still own Anthem gear and every piece has been excellent quality.

The MRX510 is the middle model of their receiver line up, 1 generation old. The current is the MRX520, this may explain the killer deal somewhat. The newer models added Atmos and the direct, non-processed mode iirc. The 510 is still very much a quality piece.

I used to own and MRX700 for a few years and for HT it was great. I started listening to more 2 channel on that system and the lack of a direct unprocessed mode always bothered me and eventually I sold the MRX700 and bought my current AVM60. I also own a pair of MCA-50 amps and am very happy with those as well. Anthem support is great as well, they are very helpful and you can even talk to a real person!

+1 for the Anthem as well, I use the MRX310 strictly as a pre/pro to my Sherbourn amp and the HT and 2ch quality is much better then the Marantz AV7702 it replaced.
