Hello,
I need to Download the Owners Manual to confirm, but I do not see why you could not use ARC along with DVS or any other Surround Mode.
Cheers,

Re: Anthem mrx 300

thanks for your reply.i didnt see anything specifically in the anthem manual saying you couldnt.the thing that made me curious.i was also reading the manual for a nad t748.there room correction will only run in 5.1,or 7.1.any less speakers it said you could only manually set it up.

Hi ,
Yes you can use ARC with 2.1 or 4.1 speaker set up. You just need to configure what speakers you are using in the ARC set up menu.

I have an MRX 300 and find it absolutely stunning with movies and very very good with music.
My MRX 300 replaced an Arcam AVR 500 and IMO is much better with movies and music thanks to ARC.

Loved my MRX-300. It hangs out with the wife upstairs for her listening pleasures. The ARC system was idiot proof to set-up!

Yep ARC is pretty straight forward and sounds awesome.
