Anthem has launched a new Public Release Network Module Version 1.109.164 and Host Firmware Version 00.68 for the MRX x40 and AVM 70 and 1.111.182 and HD.73 for the AVM 90 to support the launch of ARC Genesis Version 1.6.10. This latest version includes the newly developed Anthem Auto Phase, Distance, and Time Alignment for up to four independent subwoofers on the MRX x40 and AVM 70/90 (model dependent). This will add to the capabilities and further refine the already outstanding performance of ARC. With the addition of phase, distance, and time alignment, ARC: G will now precisely integrate subwoofers into your system for the ultimate immersive listening experience.
Also, Anthem has announced the launch of a new Beta Release Network Module Version 1.111.183 and Beta Host Firmware Version 00.68 to roll back MRX x40 and AVM 70 units in the field that were previously on Beta Release Network Module Version 1.111.182 and Beta Host Firmware Version 00.73. This will fix a small bug that was discovered during the Beta testing process where the unit may not power on from standby, requiring the user to unplug and plug back in power to turn on the unit from standby.
