Harman Kardon AVR 135 6.1 Channel Surround Sound Audio/Video Receiver

JBL Cinema 300 5.1 Speaker System (Black)

Harman Kardon AVR 135 6.1 Channel Surround Sound Audio/Video ReceiverAmazon.com 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).

    Harman Kardon again amazes me with their quality products. Nothing else can give you the power or sound quality of an HK in this price range. This receiver is a high-current receiver, which means it sounds a lot more powerful than the wattage states. The speaker connectors on back, while maybe a little hard to get your fingers around, are designed so you get the best connection between the speaker and the receiver. Receivers where you just “push the wire into the connector” give you the poorest connection of anything on the market. This is a much higher-end way to build a receiver. I just cannot say enough good things. It even LOOKS cooler than other receivers, with blue lights on the front and volume knob.

    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.

    This may seem like a strange selling feature, but I have a HTPC at home with a choice of 5.1 or 7.1 output. But my well tuned home theater speaker setup is 6.1. Obviously I didn’t want to lose the back channel by going 5.1, but at the same time I didn’t want to remount and reconfigure my system for 7.1.

    Enter the AVR 135. It has 7.1 analog inputs (perfect for my 7.1 sound card), and it combines the SBL and SBR channels to one SB channel. At first I was a little apprehensive about such a configuration, but with numerous audio tests and a little calibration with my PC, it sounded quite well.

    I’ve now owned this product for a year or so and it has served all of my needs. The only drag is that it’s hooked up to an “all high def” system, and the on-screen display will only display to a standard def input (S-Video or Composite). The on-screen display is absolutely necessary for calibrating the speakers, but most High Def TVs have at least one legacy input … you’ll find yourself devoting it to the OSD for this device (which works perfectly fine).
