  • Summary: Fantastic receiver. Shortcomings: Only 2 HDMI inputs and will not decode Dolby Digital Plus. Otherwise great for a simple home theater.

Great Receiver - Refurb from E-Bay

Robert F. Blanchard "RobbieB", Amazon
8 May 2010
  • 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. My Sony XBR1 television only has 1 HDMI input so I had to choose between the HD cable box and my Blue Ray player (PS3).

  • Summary: This reciever has many of the bells and a few whistles for a song. It is way underpriced and a huge value when compared with the current "high end" equipment.

item was shipped timely-

ikek.1974, Ebay
1 July 2009
  • Summary: item was shipped on a timely bases, this model AVR247 is probably more then what I need. It has all the power I need and then some. It takes some time to get it set up, and I still don't have it all put together with all my equipment. However, If you need a 7 channel receiver this is a good model.

A beginners response

  • Summary: Being an electronic-challenged person, I feel this system is pretty good. I did have help installing it. The remote is very user friendly. The only problem encountered is when we change TV channels through the receiver there seems to be a delay in receiving the signal. Balancing the speakers was a cinch with the little microphone setup.

AVR 247 7.1 Channel Receiver

tlumley215, Ebay
2 March 2009
  • Summary: So far the receiver seems to deliver great sound processing and the auto tune speaker function is fantastic for calibrating your surround sound speakers. I think this was a great buy but I do wish there were three or more HDMI inputs instead of just two.

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. Seems like HK has great hardware guys, but needs to invest in hiring some quality software people. When I first bought it there were some major flaws in the firmware (LFE channel being 10dB lower than it's supposed to being the most obvious one).

Pleased with my purchase

R. Stottle "Uber Nerd", Amazon
27 February 2009
  • 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. One big plus is the OSD which makes programming a breeze on the HK compared to the Onkyo. The microphone assisted auto tune for the speakers is great as well.

Better Audio than Video

Earle Sandberg, Amazon
12 February 2009
  • Summary: The 247 offers a lot of features for the price. The setup is pretty easy. The on-screen menu makes things even easier. I had problems getting the on-screen to work with rca connections, but it came right up with hdmi. The microphone for the automatic speaker configuration is simple and works well. A real luxury. The receiver reads the signals and adjusts output to match. hdmi comes through in digital dolby and it sounds great.
