Solid performance; good looking
4 Star Review   By member ewanus - Aug 30, 2008   

Strengths: very solid performance for the price

Weakness: no real HDMI support

AVR 146 is a very solid performer for the receiver. You will find the bass and high notes are very solid and clear. However, there's a lack of HDMI upconvert capability.
