This was a great receiver for the many years I owned it

Jeremy, Amazon
10 March 2015
  • Summary: This was a great receiver for the many years I owned it. Harman Kardon finally did release a firmware update to address the known issue of the LFE channel. Outside of that, it runs hot. Hotter than I was comfortable with. However it produced no issue for years of use.

Great Receiver - Refurb from E-Bay

Robert F. Blanchard "RobbieB", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a refurbished unit on E-Bay and it works and looks great. I am using HDMI connections only so the set-up was extremely easy. One of my main reasons for purchasing this unit (besides the fact that my old receiver was 8 years old and no longer worked properly) was for the HDMI inputs.

Great sound, but HK needs to hire good coders and needs some new management

K. Mizser, Amazon
2 March 2009
  • Summary: I've had this receiver for over a year now, this being my 3rd HK receiver (AVR-125, AVR-235). As usual the sound quality is top notch, I don't even need to explain it further. The problem areas are related to the software.

Pleased with my purchase

R. "Uber Nerd", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this for a week now and and am very pleased with my decision. This is replacing an Onkyo 5.1 with similar power ratings. The sound is very similar and the main differences are the HDMI inputs, an extra IR input and the RS232 input for future use.

Pretty good, some flaws (Failed after three years)

Jordan Brown, Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: First, let me note that I am perhaps not your ordinary reviewer. I am not an audiophile or a videophile. I have a tin ear, and am not *that* picky about video quality. I have no high-end gear - aside from the fact that my old receiver was failing, my short-term goal was to upgrade to a receiver that...

HK receiver

Phil Everson "PJE", Amazon
9 May 2008
  • Summary: My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to have a built in phono pre-amp (there's a separate amp for all eight speakers, but no phono amp?). Other than that it's an incredible piece of scientific equipment.
