Summary: I have been using this for a year and love it. Harmon Kardon is one of the best and this has been proof to me. I highly recommend it. I currently have this connected in my bedroom powering the 7.1 in-wall system. Love it. EricShirk.com
Summary: I guess I've had this AVR for about 3 years now and it's been rock solid. For an AVR with its modest output specs it really kicks out the audio. For HT use it has plenty of power to drive my 5 NHT SuperZeros, which are not very efficient. It has and continues to work flawlessly. Setup was easy.
Summary: Well, it sounded good when it worked! I had immediate HDMI passthrough issues with every device I tried. I tried several Bluray players, a few streaming media players, and finally the PS3. None worked right. I had constant droputs of both audio and video.
Summary: Purchased new just over a year ago. HDMI video is temperamental at best. Eventually video dailed completely and firmaware update doesn't help. Customer Service was horrible, warranty was horrible. This is the third HK receiver that I had purchased in 4 years. Never Again!
Summary: I've had this Harmon Kardon AVR 1600 for almost 3 years. Auditioned this AVR in a Home Store with the ability to switch b/t a $3000 Yamaha AV Receiver and this little 50 watt per channel HK 1600 which was pushing Klipsch RC-52's.
