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.

Very nice piece

  • Summary: I love this A/V amp. I agonize over purchases like this. I shopped online and compared A/V receivers for weeks before finally buying the HK. Bought it here on Amazon on a Sunday,it was shipped for free, and arrived at my doorstep on the following Tuesday! Paid at least $150 less than Fry's or Vanns's sale prices. Beautiful aesthetics. Love the silver and black faceplate and the blue LCD display.

  • Summary: This is an amazing piece of equipment with so many different capabilities. However, the remote is very confusing. And, with so many channels, finding the right one can be a challenge. Great performance!

Great value for a great piece of AV equipment

DonTheMagicWand, Amazon

  • Summary: I have the AVR-245 paired with a set of Athena Micra 5.1's and the sound is very good for a beginner HT setup. Dual HDMI switching, clear sound, tons of supported surround modes and inputs - this thing is a great value. If you have an Ipod and love to listen to music in your HT room, get the Bridge. That thing works very well with my Ipod Nano.

First one a dud, we'll see about #2

J. Payne "Home Theater Nut", Amazon
19 December 2006
  • Summary: I bought a Harman Kardon AVR 230 a couple of years back and recently decided to ugprade to the AVR 245. Amazon has an amazing price for this unit so I purchased one. Within a couple of days it made a clicking sound and audio disappeared. Turning it off and on again got audio back but I've lost all access to the On Screen Display (OSD), even on S-VIDEO connection. This is critical to getting it setup properly...

Super Ton außer man benutzt HDMI

Andreas Neumann "Andreas Neumann", Amazon
17 January 2008
  • Summary: Dr Receiver an sich ist super. Ein Problem: Bei den HDMI-Anschlüssen handelt es sich nur um Weichen, d.h. die Anlage kann ihnen weder Bild noch Ton entnehmen.

  • Summary: Krótko i na temat. Opinia bedzie sie odnosila tez do wczesniej uzywanego przeze mnie Pioneera VSX-714: Głowne zalety: 1. Przede wszystkim nowoczesny i gustowny wyglad! Podswietlanyna niebiesko regulator glosnosci i włacznik urzadzenia - dla mnie rewelka. Mam juz dosyc tych wszystkich bezuzytecznych przyciskow i oznaczen na przednim palelu. Całośc wykonana z aluminium, po za duza plexi zakrywajacym wyswietlacz. 2.
  • Pros: rewelacyjne brzmienie, solidna konstrukcja, nowoczesny design
  • Cons: brak podswietlenia pilota i co za tym idzie niewygodny w obsłudze
