This is the best entry level amp you will find anywhere.

Summary: I have enjoyed the quality of Harman Kardon since 1978. The AVR 235 has very stable and clean reproduction. The quality of this reciever is equal to the higher end units but has less features and power than you will get if your spedn twice as much.
Summary: I'm not going to go into huge detail on this first cut of my review--partially because it is an older model, and largely because I'm about ready to chuck the machine out the window into the snow.
Summary: I am a Harman Kardon freak. I love the sound these receivers put out. I own two of them and also some other HK electronic products. Love this receiver. Too bad it doesnt have HDMI inputs but I am not using it for HDMI so it works great.
Summary: The HK AVR235 7.1 Receiver is an excellent value --it has the features and all that one would want for an AV system. The feature access are simple and direct -- the performance is great. as a 7.1 system featured you have allt he options you could ask for.
Summary: Aesthetically this piece of equipment is beautiful, and is technically superb. I would recommend this to anybody searching for a great value in a 7.1 receiver. An important note to some would be the lack of HDMI switching capability.
Summary: This receiver is awesome. It has tons of imputs and outputs on the back, and RCA, S-Video, Optical, and Digital Coax in the front. There are two spots on the back to plug in other electronics, both switched and unswitched. Set up is a breeze.
Summary: AVR 235 Impressive receiver. While this is low-end HK, the features are pretty astounding, appealing to listeners who want a quick set-up to people like me, who want to tweak each channel from its delay to its frequency response to its overall output.
