Rated 3 out of 5 by from UPDATE SPEC SHEET. DOES NOT FEATURE 4K PASSTHROUGH Please update the downloadable spec sheet or delete it, false details. I bought it because the spec sheet said it had 4k passthrough. I believe this to be false advertisment and very unfair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacking in a few areas Bought this to stream music from a number of different sources including spotify, local storage and network radio. Spotify - Stutters constantly trying to play. Had to connect an apple tv to the amp and stream to that to correct the problem. Network radio - Very clunky interface makes it too slow to navigate and find what you want. I enjoy the sound from the amp but unfortunately I can't get that sound using the methods I wanted!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No 4k passthrough Same as the previous guys, bought this with the hope that it will last a few years. No 4K support, how sad. Wont by a HK receiver again, and wont recommend.

When I swicht on my device AVR142 it appears PROTECT and it turns off directly, what could be the problem ?

Asked by: Miquel Sala

HI, Vtuner has issue with italian radio and in particular it freezes. I must totally stand by and reboot. On web there is not a firmware for this item.

Asked by: kageja

4k pass through doesn't seem to work. Is there a setting somewhere I'm missing. When I connect direct to my 4k tv no issues. If I connect via the amp I get 1080p on my tv.

Asked by: Mike

VTuner hungs on some stations and more stations are causing hung when time goes. Now I can play only one Estonian station: Hit FM. Other devices (Smartphone, PC) can play all stations from radioharmankardon.com. Is there a way I can fix it myself?

Asked by: AguK

My device connected to the net. And I can't listen radio via vTuner. Even if I did it earlier. The vTuner says not connected, the network settings says connected. What can I do to connect again?

Asked by: Levi
