AVR 245 7.1 channel Receiver has crystal clear audio

4portswitch, Ebay
7 September 2010
  • Summary: I was initially going to bid on a 247 but to my dismay, someone out there in the ether kept bidding into the "New Price" level. I happened to see this AVR 245 and without double checking I bid at the last second and won. I was not ready to be impressed by this receiver. I knew this unit would not process HDMI actively but I was disappointed to find out a couple of things; There is no "by-pass" when the power is off.

Awesome sound quality!

Justin K. Thomas, Amazon
10 April 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver after about 2 months of research. I kept coming back to Harman Kardon as it seemed to be the best receiver i could get for the money. So far i have not been dissapointed at all. Its easy to set up, looks great and sounds awesome. I am using a 5.1 set up of polk audio speakers that work flawlessly with it. I guess the only thing i wish it would do is upconvert everything to the HDMI output so i could have a single cable running to my TV.
