Summary: item was shipped on a timely bases, this model AVR247 is probably more then what I need. It has all the power I need and then some. It takes some time to get it set up, and I still don't have it all put together with all my equipment. However, If you need a 7 channel receiver this is a good model.
Summary: So far the receiver seems to deliver great sound processing and the auto tune speaker function is fantastic for calibrating your surround sound speakers. I think this was a great buy but I do wish there were three or more HDMI inputs instead of just two.
Summary: I love the sound and power of the unit. I bought it for future HDMI connectivity and the reputation of Harmon-Kardon's quality and value. The refurbished unit I received has some cosmetic damage (scratches of the black face). I was surprised that the unit was also loaded with old firmware which I updated with a download from their website.
