MEMORIAL DAY SPECIAL!!! STEAL THIS RECEIVER :-) HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! PRICE LOWERED TO $99 (PLUS SHIPPING). THIS UNIT PLAYS BEAUTIFULLY, AND IF YOU NEED A RECEIVER OF HOME OFFICE, BEDROOM, SMALL HOME THEATER, THIS IS GREAT. I CAN RATE AT LEAST AN 8, BUT AM STAYING VERY CONSERVATIVE ON THIS ONE.
Tried and true Harmon Kardon AVR 135 Receiver. Have owned for maybe 5 or 6 years, sounds much nicer than it should for the price. Comes with remote (If I can find the instruction manual I'll include). Sports Illustraed cover shown for perspective only; she does not come with receiver. This is a fairly heavy unit, buyer pays shipping and paypal.
Return only if description is not accurate. Probably should be an 8, but marking 7 to be conservative.
No International Please. Thank you for looking!!
Product Description Harman Kardon's affordable AVR 135 6.1 audio/video surround receiver decodes an array of 5.1- and 6.1-channel surround formats, bringing you great sound from many sources. The AVR 135 features a discrete-output amplifier that pumps 6 channels of high-current (+/-25 amps), ultrawide-bandwidth power: 6 x 40 watts into 8 ohms, 20 to 20,000 Hz with less than 0.07 percent THD. The receiver uses state-of-the-art 192 kHz/24-bit audio digital-to-analog converters and a high-power Cirrus 32-bit DSP processor for clear, dynamic presentations from music and movies.
Take a closer look at the AVR 135's connections. You can also view the unit's front panel and remote control in detail.
Surround sound features include traditional Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital 5.1, and DTS surround, including 6.1 DTS-ES Discrete, DTS-ES Matrix, and DTS Neo:6 (Cinema 6.1/5.1 and Music 6.1/5.1). You also get Harman's proprietary Logic 7 audio for enhanced multichannel reproduction from both matrix-encoded and 2-channel recordings.
As part of its broad video hookup options, the receiver offers wide-bandwidth, HDTV-compatible component-video inputs and an array of digital and analog audio connections, including multiple coaxial and optical digital audio inputs and outputs. It sports both analog and digital front-panel inputs, and 6-channel direct audio inputs to accommodate a DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, SACD, or universal player.
The AVR 135's cutting-edge technologies also include triple-crossover bass management and automatic digital input polling. Digital input polling is a Harman Kardon feature that detects whether the selected audio source is digital or analog in nature and automatically configures the receiver to provide the required audio output. This means you won't have to manually switch the receiver's input from digital to analog when changing from, say, an SACD-capable DVD player's coaxial digital output (for Dolby/DTS) and its multichannel analog outputs (to appreciate the SACD audio). You can switch the feature off when desired.
Triple-crossover bass-management system lets you choose from multiple crossover frequencies for the front L/R, center, surround L/R, and surround back L/R speakers. Most receivers and DVD players have far more limited crossover filtering or none at all. Moreover, you can set different speaker-size configurations for different AVR 135 input sources according to your needs.
You get a high-quality FM/AM tuner with 30 station presets and a Listener Preference System that lets you specify a surround mode according to the program source. You can also set speaker-channel levels for each program source and DSP format (for example, the subwoofer level can be set differently for multichannel movie viewing and 2-channel CD music listening).
