This unit has great sound, but setup is very cumbersome
28 June 2015
Summary: This unit has great sound, but setup is very cumbersome, and HK customer service is absolutely awful. The on-screen menu is very limited, and the on-line only user guide is extremely unfriendly as well. The hdmi passthrough system failed within 30 days of use.
Summary: I have had this unit a little over two years before it failed. Surprising given that the Sony that it replaced had been working fine for 25 years. The unit display went out so there was no visual indication of what device was selected or at what volume.
Summary: I've always have been a Harmon kardon person. It sounds awesome with my speakers and surround system. The sound is better than being at the movies. My wife gets really mad at me when I turn the volume up but I love it. Would buy it again for the money
Harman Kardon AVR 1650 5.1-Channel, 95-Watt Audio/Video Receiver with HDMI.

Summary: I have had the unit for 3 weeks now and have not been able to use the remote to turn the thing OFF or ON. It comes with almost nothing as far as instructions are concerned and you are expected to download the instructions off the net. That isn't what I paid for!!
