Summary: While HK has newer receivers I think that this one has a great group of features, quality sound and generally simple set up. I was drawn to this model because it features Airplay, built-in internet tuner and SIX HDMI inputs all contained in a very attractive package at a very attractive price. Connecting this unit to my current audio system was easy. In a very short time I was listening to CDs in stereo and watching Blu-Rays in TrueHD.
Everything you could ask for in a home theater AVR

Summary: After literally week of evaluating various AVR receivers from better known suppliers, I selected the HK AVR1700. It provided plenty of input sources, enough power to drive a rich 3d sound and features which compete with units twice the price.
Summary: First of all I apologize for the lengthy review, but since some people really use reviews as input to their analysis on whether or not to purchase specific item, I decided after reading my first review that I needed to adjust it for clarity concerning my particular case, and to be fair with the product manufacturer.
Summary: Where to begin with this Receiver is beyond me. I've solved a million of my issues for HDMI hookups into my LED TV. I've got a MEdia server, an Xbox, a computer, Internet and Cable all hooked up through this and have plenty of space for other HDMI inputs should I really need them. I'm beyond what else you could need but its def got it if you need it. Sound Quality is great and I upgraded from a receiver I bought in the 1990's.
I'd love it if the 'please wait, BCO update' would go away

Summary: Shortly after I turn it on, I get this message displayed on the front of the receiver. I can't change volume, mute, or do anything with the remote unless I turn if off completely, back on, then quickly adjust volume or switch to DVD, etc. Very annoying. Some friends found a remedy somewhere online, but it only worked for awhile. It seems to come and go by itself. Any permanent fix available?
