Summary: Just some long term input on this device. It sounds great when it works. I've had mine for three years and it died on me twice. Th first time it would not turn on. The second time was much worse, the replacement I received caught on fire just by turning it on.
Summary: This is my first HK receiver and I am highly disappointed. I'm not a tech person and will use basic terms...I have my PS3 hooked up using an HDMI cable. There is a terrible crackling sound in all of my speakers.
Summary: I bought this receiver based on reviews that rated the HK units as some of the best for music. My setup includes a set of high end Klipsch speakers and a 12" JBL sub-woofer, sound was excellent while it worked. I have gone through 2 units now.
Summary: While I can attest that the unit sounds great, configuring it is nothing short of a nightmare. I originally purchased the AVR-147 model, but returned it because it did not pass through video, so I would be switching video inputs on my 1080p TV while switching audio inputs on my AVR-147.
