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: 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.
The surround sound is amazing. Spot on center voice audio and the surround ...

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: Bought this as a replacement for an old 1984 Sony 5.1 system and kept my old Bose speakers. Excellent receiver. The HDMI cable hookup didn't work for audio due in part to the TV being an LG product. Also have a cable box.
Summary: Very good 5.1 system powerfull enought for 99% of listeners,easy to install and set-up. Upmarket design .The power button, fells a little cheap in fist contact,But other than that, this HK is a SUPER DEAL for $299.00
Summary: This receiver has great sound but I especially like the built in free internet radio. Lots of choices from Rock to my favorite station "Bossa Nova Breakfast" (1960s Brazilian jazz). We have Pandora also but we prefer the Harmon Kardon choices. The receiver has a CAT-5 plug in the back.
Summary: Running 2.1 with Klipsch F-30s and it sounds great. This is my first set up, but I know what I wanted to hear and what i wanted from this reciever. Setup was a piece of cake. All the features listed worked as they should. Shipping was great can't go wrong with UPS.
