Customer Review

I bought this AV Reciever Set with HKTS9 BQ speakers in another market. When unpacking, I am first of all frightened, the Receiver is very easy, and I have first of all looked through the vents to see if you have as well forget the power supply :) After connecting the lights on but walked, and sound came out, So suspicion unfounded.

However, I must say that I would not buy this due to the Receiver's menu and not at all user friendly settings again. I'm an IT professional and configure highly complex devices, but before I could elicit this Reciever reasonable-sounding tones, I'm almost desperate. The settings has made the automatic calibration were for the cinematic experience quite good, however, sounded 2 channel stereo operation then only after hangover ... One way the setup of speakers for different output modes to configure different was unfortunately vergessen.Mann Although rules separately for each source Bass and Treble, but when the Room EQ is turned on also helps the bass at the highest level for music nothing. If you switch the Room Equalizer after calibration again the function is grayed out, and the man must Reciever only Calibrate again to leave this option to re-enable it. Here H & K must urgently make improvements, I hope for a firmware update. As long as I have to decide between cinema sound and stereo operation well, because both is not a setting. Conclusion: 5.1 cinema sound to use well, for listening to music but then only partially. I would not install again Buy
