  • Summary: When this thing works, it's great. Everything sounds great and the calibration is snap. However, there's a couple of major problems are important to point out if you buy this. I've had two of these units and each one had a different set of issues.

First One Died Already

sunspot42x "sunspot42x", Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: h/k quality ain't what it used to be. My first one of these died after just under a year - began making a thumping/snapping noise whenever you'd turn it on, then after a few months progressed to making repeated, fast pounding noises, like someone pounding on a door.

I had problems

Super Dad, Amazon

  • Summary: I had to return this product because I had problems with the 3D Bluray player. No picture on the Bluray. Harmon Kardon tech support is very nice but is NOT in the US. After a replacement unit I was able to get the 3D Bluray to work. Sounds great and looks good but not totally happy the unit.

  • Summary: I will never ever get another receiver without HDMI passthough had to buy2 splitter/matrix devices just so I could get the signal to the receiver & TV Without the receiver on all the time!
  • Pros: nice clean sound - good looking internal cooling fan - solid construction
  • Cons: interface/set-up GUI is confusing - remote is frekin' HUGE! no HDMI passthrough - had to buy a 3D splitter to get the signal to my Samsung 3D LED & from the Direct TV box everything on the front panel is tiny & hard to read except the volume knob which is HUGE

  • Summary: I purchased this item. It was working fine. After Amazon's return policy, the product failed to put out sound in HDMI. Amazon stated that because it was past their refund/exchange date, I would have to mail the product to their fulfillment center and "they" would determine what the refund amount...

AVR 2600

moviefan, Amazon
24 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this receiver as an upgrade to my 10-year old Marantz based on its styling, feature set, H/K reputation, and price. Now that it is properly set up, I am happy with my purchase. However, I almost sent it back a couple of times when I tried to set it up.

I reluctantly returned it to a seller allied with Amazon

Gerald Siegel, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • Summary: I gave it a good try. After studying the manual and quick start guide for days, I still was unable to get any of the HDMI inputs to work on my own. I went through a troubleshooting routine on phone with H-K rep and it was determined that my logical first choice of the four input HDMI jacks was...
