Summary: I was looking at an inexpensive receiver to step up from my htib. I found HK and like the looks and in further looking they all had good reviews. I bought this receiver and it was an easy setup.
Summary: Although this receiver doesen't count with the latest features of parametric sound equalizer and auto set up microphone like the bigger versions, it is indeed a really good performer, solid bass, really nice midrange and good highs. Plenty of inputs and outputs.
Summary: i bought the receiver because i feel that the high current amps provide a warmer sound. and the 6 channel receiver provides the surround channel with out having to go up to a 7 channel receiver price when most cds' and dvds' are 5 channel anyways.
Summary: I had a solid vintage workhorse 2-channel amp for a long time but finally thought it ws time to upgrade to surround sound. After researching extensively, Harmon Karden was the most consistently praised company. But I only needed an entry level model. This unit is perfect.
Summary: I needed a receiver that had 6 channel inputs with clean power at an affordable price.... I got it! Easy to use and set up (OSD)... The remote is a little confusing at first, but you get used to it quickly. I bought the AVR135 for a home project recording studio to do 5.1 surround mixing...
Summary: This is a very complex receiver and definately not for the beginner that i am...i found it very diffucult to set up and had to ask a friend to come to my house and complete the process. Very happy with the sound and the HK speakers.
Summary: I bought this receiver to go with my new Panasonic plasma TV and so far I'm pretty happy. Plenty of connections for all your AV equipment, including three digital inputs. Two complaints: - As mentioned by other reviewers, the speaker connections on the back are somewhat hard to get to.
Excerpt: Der AVR 135 ist nun in der schwarzen Ausführung seit 3 Wochen bei mir im Einsatz und bislang muss ich immer noch sagen die Kaufentscheidung war goldrichtig. Hervorzheben ist beim AVR 135 ganz klar die Vielfalt an Einstellmöglichkeiten.
