Summary: Very disappointing. It had a lot of potential but too many quirks and bugs. After a while I grudgingly exchanged for a Yamaha of the same level and it is 10x better and more capable. The only thing this has over that is looks but no, don't trust Harmon Kardon receivers.. Lesson learned
Summary: Biggest waste of money. There's a reason they discontinued making these. I 've had this unit for less then a year and it has been nothing but problems. Half the time you cannot turn it on and get an array of error messages. Save some money and aggravation and buy another better brand.

Summary: Was a good product until it stopped working properly. I was at the end of my two-year warranty, so Harmon Kardon was good enough to replace my unit with the upgraded AVR 2700 since this unit is discontinued.
Summary: Although analog inputs died, HK promptly exchanged with a AVR3750. Also the sound dropout everyone is talking about is very minimal and can be avoided by selecting output method manually instead of auto.
Pros: Got on sale for a great price. My favorite GUI by far. Allows you to rename and set different ports for different inputs. Great sound quality. Clean look with a nice wow factor on the dimming knob. Great customer support and warranty.
Cons: sound dropout when HDMI detects audio input change. Runs somewhat warm. Analog ports all died within 6 months. Somewhat under powered.
Pros: My work around worked for only a few weeks then the unit totally went out. When I called Harmon Kardon, they described an exchange program, and so I got a new one. In fact, they replaced my 2650 with a 2700. 14 days later, I was enjoying a much better receiver. Still, there are times when I turn ...
