  • Summary: Harman Kardon, JBL, AKG have fan for life. I was spoiled to Denon for the longest when it came to receivers. Then I started buying JBL speakers and AKG headphones. I thought...why not try a Harman Kardon receiver. I was blown away by the clarity and strength this receiver pushes to every speaker.

  • Summary: I am still learning about the features but as far as a receiver with 5.1 this is better than I expected. The setup automatically adjusts the speaker distance, level and EQ which is amazing. I have setup a lot of 5.1 manually but never sounded like this automatic feature.

  • Summary: When I first saw this Item (and the price) I thought it was a great deal. That all changed once I received it. It Arrived DOA and what's worse is that I traveled overseas with it and could not return it. I guess I did last what I should have done first. i.e. read the reviews on various forums.

Love this Receiver!!!

Eric L., Amazon

  • Summary: This is my third HK receiver. I also have the HK 3490 and the HK1610. I just really like the warm sound that they have. This one has the Logic7 surround sound mode which is awesome. It has just enough power for my large game/family room.

Average receiver, plagued with hardware failure.

  • Summary: This is a average receiver when working. It sounds OK, and it looks really nice in your entertainment center. The problem is TONS of people have had had their units fail due to HDMI problems. I would avoid buying this, it won't last very long. Pros: -Nice Looking, Lightweight AVR.

  • Summary: Had a technical question so called the 800 number and was connected to someone whose 1st language wasn't English (Hmm) so I guess their technical support isn't in N America (guessing India).

Not what I expected

Jean, Amazon

  • Summary: My son recommended the AVR 1700 as he has had several Harman Kardon amps. We got this one because it had airplay. After receiving the AVR we realized that the airplay feature is only enabled when the AVR is connected to the router.

  • Summary: I am just commenting on sound quality. I have not used the air play or networking features. Using this in a home theater setup with a 1080 3D projector and piping audio to Polk 5.1 satellite setup. The surround sound is amazing.

  • Summary: Great AVR for the price. Has an iPhone app to help control it as long as it is wired to your network. I brought this for my Xbox One. Also, wanted an AVR that did not have a volume dial that my 4 year old will play with. The volume dial is flush so it less exciting for him to grab.
