Lab Report: Spotify Connect is now available on MRX Receivers & AVM Processors

Posted

Anthem has announced that Spotify Connect is now available on MRX Receivers & AVM Processors. Since their introduction in February, Anthem’s newest MRX AV Receivers and AVM Surround Processors have taken their place at the premium end of the consumer electronics segment. With support for the newest surround codecs and music formats, they deliver the highest possible audio quality. Built-in streaming support for Apple AirPlay and other services has brought convenience and ease to the playback experience.

According to a representative, "With the addition of Spotify Connect, users can use their phone or tablet as a high-quality audio source. Spotify subscribers can stream a huge variety of content directly to their MRX Receiver or AVM Processor. With no additional components in the signal chain, the integrity of the original stream is flawlessly preserved. Thanks to the high-end Digital/Analog conversion available in these products, sound quality is unparalleled."

Anthem’s direct integration of Spotify allows the user to simply select their MRX or AVM product as a speaker in the Spotify app, then stream the music directly from the device over their home Wi-Fi network. With no compression or other alteration of the music, you’ll hear only premium audio.

Earlier this month, Spotify Connect was added through a mandatory firmware update to all Anthem MRX Receivers and AVM Processors. Users can now enjoy Spotify Connect on their MRX Receivers and AVM Processors at no additional charge.
