Summary: I use to have one of these years ago and swear by it but when i tried to get another now it gets damaged in shipping, BUMMER. This has great power and outstanding sound that is what only Harman Kardon can put out.
Excellent receiver overall but remote is very difficult to program.

Summary: This is a great piece of equipment. I bought it to replace an old AVR-210 and it is an excellent upgrade. The amount of ports this receiver has is excellent - especially the HDMI ports. I never realized how much I needed a receiver with HDMI ports until I hooked this baby up. I do have to say that keeping the wires/cords straight on the inputs was a bit challenging and took some time, but once hooked up the setup was made very easy by the included microphone auto-tuner.
Beautiful sound! would reccomend to anyone for the price!!

Summary: First off, I am writing from the perspective of a newcomer to the home audio market. I have heard many good things about Harman Kardon's products for years, figured I would try one of their receivers when I got around to building a home theater. I purchased this system for my bedroom. I am currently using it in a two-channel format, But am planning on expanding it when I get a bigger place. The sound quality is what impressed me the most.
Summary: This is the best receiver in its price range, period. For a mid-level receiver, this unit has features often found in higher-end models. Out of the box, setup was a snap. Directions are clear and easy to flow. The included microphone for the EZ setup made calibrating this unit a breeze. The sound is phenomenal. Crisp highs and deep lows. Plenty of power for the user looking to bring their speakers to life.
Summary: This is an incredible A/V tuner. As I expected from Harman Kardon, It was more then I knew. Just an awesome, room filling sound and more flexible in it's abilities to adapt then I could have wished for.
