Good for $150

  • Summary: I can only guess how much worse comparable amplifiers have become since 2004. I bought my AVR-240 a year ago for $175. At first, I thought, I got myself a good deal. The 240 produced decent sound quality on my Martin-Logan Motion 12 fronts and my dual Polk RTi6 centers (the rears are just about irrelevant). At one point, I hooked up a pair of Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 350s for fronts and found them inadequate.

Best Receiver

Eric Capasso, Amazon
17 March 2011
  • Summary: I use to have the JBL Cinema Pro Pack. I upgraded to the Harman, same company.. And like always as soon as somthing comes out, something better comes out after. This receiver is very nice. The amp gets hot even when not puching it, but I never had a problom. Movies sound almost life like...almost. DTS is much better sounding. You have to have a good set of speakers and not some cheap book shelf speakers. My fronts are a set of tower Polk Audio 6 1/2.

Technological advances quickly surpassed capabilities

  • Summary: I was very happy with this receiver until BD and HDMI technology hit the stage. The sound produced by this receiver is very, very good, but there are no HDMI inputs so I'm stuck using optical or analog out. I'm in the market now for a new receiver because this one is simply outdated. If you don't mind the lack of HDMI inputs, this receiver is a fantastic buy.

An excellent mid-level a/v receiver that you will enjoy

bozack69, Ebay

  • Summary: I recently purchased the HK AVR-240 on Ebay to replace a Kenwood THX receiver, and man I’m glad I did. The 50 watt AVR-240 beats the 100 watt rated Kenwood hands down. The sound clarity and crispness the HK produces can’t be beat. The .07% harmonic distortion rate ensures your speakers will produce crisp soprano highs, clear mid-ranges, and thumping bass lines. Not muffled or masked reproduction, but crystal clear sound.

Loving HK...

J. Schrank, Amazon

  • Summary: First HK receiver, and amazed at the quality and performance for the price. This particular model came recommended by our professional home theater installer as a best buy. You absolutely can't beat HK's approach to amplification.

Fantastic Product

Dion Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: I looked at various near high end systems, Denon, HK, etc. I am verry happy with my purchase. It is a beautiful system. It replaced a Sony. My picture is better and the sound is terriffic. The EZ set feature setup surround perfect with my Bose speakers. If I would have researched it a little more, I would have went with the 245 bc of HDMI and upcoding of my older Svideo to component. I use it with DTV Tivo, DVD, and AppleTV to my HDTV.

I wish I had bought a Harman Kardon earlier

Jason A. Klein, Amazon
3 February 2007
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a mid-range Sony receiver. After having had two Sony units that have failed in the past 10 years, I decided it was time to move on. I'm glad I did. The HK sounds better, looks better and has better options than the Sony. I hooked up all my video through the receiver, so now I can just change the audio source, and the video source changes as well.

Very Satisfied

JB, Amazon

  • Summary: I am not a big technical guy. But I do my research, and I want quality. This receiver has more features than I will ever use. We use it mostly for watching DVD's in surround sound. Great buy, good experience with Amazon.
