Was not as described

  • Summary: Sounded fine, but didn't have ports in the front like the image and description led me to believe. Sound was good, but not real loud. Also I had issues with hdmi by passing. Which basically means If I wanted the hdmi signal to pass through the reciever had to be on. Some recievers you can set the receiver to automatically send the hdmi signal to the TV when the receiver is off.

  • Summary: It's a beautiful machine , especially for $245. I have 2 80 watt Bose bookshelf speakers it works beautifully with. Some of the subtleties it brings out of the music I listen to just weren't there with my 14 year old Yamaha receiver.

  • Summary: I needed to replace my Sony surround sound receiver. Shopped around, comparing by price & brand. The Harman Kardon receiver was the way to go, just a few dollars more, I know I got a quality receiver at an excellent price! It looks great too!

Love it

  • Summary: I sold an Emotiva 2 channel amp and lost money on it...and still got this cheaper than that amp! With the Emotiva, I was planning on building a high quality system, and ad $700 bookshelf speakers and possibly a preamp. I decided my old speakers sound fine...and I use my audio technica ws99 headphones allot anyway. So the amp with only 1 pair of RCA inputs was fine until I hooked up my Xbox to my monitor, and I realized I needed more inputs.

Had to return.

  • Summary: I went from a Pioneer receiver that lasted over a decade to this Harmon Kardon 1565 receiver that would intermittently decide that it didn't want to decode 5.1 PCM from my PS3 or WiiU. PCM is standard as those sources either decode DTS/Dolby at the source or simply output in multi-channel PCM (in the case of the WiiU). Bought the Marantz 1403 instead, and it works like a charm.
