High quality Audio Video Receiver with outstanding sound from Harmon Kardon
10 August 2014
Summary: Outstanding sound, which is why I purchased this in the first place. As others have noted, don't let the 45Watts per channel fool you--the sound quality is strong, clear, and excellent in every way. I'm no techie, but I know a quality product when I see one. This is one, and it is a great value too.
Summary: this one has no HDMIs abut will give give you Digital DTS and Dolby, for the price, you get a high-end quality that is comparable to $1,000 receivers! the surround is clear and powerful, and the design is elegant and modern!! I'll never buy from another brand that is not Harman Kardon
Summary: Does everything I need it to do. The AVR145 is a great entry level 5.1 channel receiver if you don't need: audio over HDMI, HDMI upconverting, 7.1, etc. The sound is great and supplies more than enough power for my JBL Venue Series floorstanding Stadium and Tour speakers.
Summary: The quality of the sound is great! I am definitely not using all the features. I have it driving a Bose Acoustimass 6 speaker system, and I am very happy with the sound. As all the HK systems look similar, I was confused regarding which features the 145 actually had, and thought it had HDMI...
Summary: Just bought this to bring life to my system. Running Polk audio bookshelf speakers as the front channels, pioneer's as the rears and center. Mirage Omni S8 sub set up in a small apartment living room. The AVR 145 brings everything you would expect from Harman/Kardon.
Summary: O.K., I TOOK EVERYONE'S ADVICE AND PURCHASED ONE OF THESE RECEIVERS...LET'S SEE, IN THE FIRST WEEK, THE REMOTE STOPPED WORKING AND THE SALES PEOPLE TOLD ME TO JUST GO AHEAD AND BUY ANOTHER REMOTE...GEEE WHIZ GUYS...THANK'S A LOT! NOW TO THE OTHER PROBLEMS...
Summary: I owned a Sony STR-DE695 6.1 receiver which was rated at 100 watts per channel for my upstairs AV room. Despite those seemingly impressive specs, something seemed to be missing. I decided to get an HK having owned one before and I knew that their power was rated honestly.
Summary: The HK AVR 145 is by far the best surround receiver in it's price range: quality build, well thought out controls, easy set up, and superb sound. Don't let the power ratings fool you, this baby puts out clean honest watts to all chanels; it blew away my Kenwood rated at over twice the power.
Summary: A l'heure de bientot remplacer mon AVR145 contre un modèle hdmi, toujours de la même marque, je vais vous dire pourquoi je pense rester fidèle à cette marque. Cet appareil se trouve assez difficilement, même d'occasion, preuve du contentement des acheteurs. (contactez moi on ne sait jamais...
Pros: son dynamique, design moderne, connectique complète
