AV Receivers: Harman AVR 365

  2. Data sheet

After pressing the main switch on the back and a subtly lit on tippers on the front Harman AVR 365 under shrill hum twitching starts – what signaled a robust power transformer inside and unobstructed flow.

Then the receiver starts something like a fancy catching me game with the operator who rejects an indepth manual read in advance. By because on the 850-euro product just call CD as a source! Instead it is necessary first of all “source list” to select. And then to scroll to determine ultimately disappointed that there is no CD here from House.

Then attacks user but rather to the remote control, to reach the colorful beautiful screen menu via “AVR” (not on menu). Is there with some precision “assign 1, 2 or 3” appointed to the CD input. Does it sound always yet strangely? Then apply it, the functions called Dolby leveller and modeller to looking up – this “Off” that we have finally made it.

When such forays, the fan will register but with pleasure, that he not only before fine can tune with the Harman A/D-gewandeltes, but also received via HDMI for video. Thanks to the noble Faroudja Genesis processor in a whole series of points – from brightness to overscan. This allows to wrest still the right image adjustment unwilling monitors may. In this respect, the 365 is superior to the less versatile Denon. When video came only to the stalemate, because the Denon to a tick can produce cleaner de interlacen, leased so under motion line doubling full row images.

Extremely buoyant, bass, pithy – also in the CD prelude – AVR 365 at the jury arrived perfectly. If it was very loud, he threatened himself before loud temperament almost to turn over. Then the Harman tended here and there to small strands of rough, while the competitor of Denon remained combed.

In surround the Harman also flaunted his rock nature. With haunting voices, he created special tension in movies. The Denon as the Marantz provided for the better overview. No matter, with even more fire when HD titles, a the Harman recommended final for the fan who likes fame.
