Awesome until "Protect"

Nancy M., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Pros: Lots of hookups
  • Cons: After about eight months of daily usage it decided to make a series of hideous 120 decibel snap, crackle, and pop sounds, and the screen said, "PROTECT." After calming my wife and children that it indeed was NOT the end of the world, I turned it back on and all was fine. I figured it must be dust. About two weeks later the same thing happened again. I removed all the speakers from the back to test for shorts, and it seemed to be ok, but after a few minutes it goes int...

Good Receiver

JB, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this receiver about 6 months ago and have used it a fair amount since then. I got a real nice deal on this around Christmas time last year, and also bought some Polk Monitor 60's and a CS1 at the same time. Overall I am happy with this receiver. It looks great and functions well. The receiver does well pushing the monitor 60's in stereo mode. I feel like a little more, or maybe a lot more, power would be nice though.

Main Brain

JP, Amazon
13 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver a couple of weeks ago and it arrived within specified time. Everything works well for now. I used the microphone to set up my 7.1 speaker set up running Polk Audio all around so its nice but I didn't like how the receiver set up my speakers so I ended up doing this manually for each speaker at the end. Now it sounds like a receiver with some kick to it.

  • Summary: Great receiver, Good sound. I bought a new one. What I found was a scratched remote and all the front panels were installed. Did not bother to contact. At least receiver looks new.

Great receiver

William E., Newegg
13 April 2011
  • Pros: On screen setup, HDMI bypass to tv, 2 options for speaker hookups, 4 hdmi input for a tv that lacks. Headphone jack included which configures your speakers by HZ, distance, and Power. Power should be manually configured by user in some cases due to room acoustics. Doesnt have a lot of "fake" tweaks for tuning the sound so it seems more true than other models rather than messing with the mids. VERY high current compared to other models of same price. This system works ...
  • Cons: No optical output; has coax output. Receiver needs a remote IR sensor because it can be hard to aim @ the box. Doesnt easily receive signals all the time. Does not have cable coax in; looks like it but this is for AM antenna.

  • Summary: Bought this mostly for music but it does well with netflix and TV. Good receiver for a smaller room (like a bedroom) where we have L/R/C speakers and a nice video screen. Would be nice to have pre-outs for bigger rooms but the cost trade-off vs. AVR 3600 was worth it for me. [...
  • Pros: Clean Look and Design, Dolby Volume, Easy To Setup, HK signature sound
  • Cons: A little underpowered

Does Many Things Well

Solderball, J&R
5 February 2011
  • Summary: I had been looking for something to integrate 10 years of random audio-video purchases. I found this AVR and matching speakers while doing competitive research for a local audio company. I was able to integrate a Sony VCR, Sony Network-aware Blueray player and Sony XBR2 seamlessly. My girlfriend and I like to watch Netflix movies, both streaming and on DVD. This system does a very nice job in that regard. Also great for watching sporting events.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Interfaces Well With TV
