Exceptional receiver with only one downside for current High Def 3d tv users
17 January 2014
Summary: As for the sound, its exceptional. Ive used this receiver for 6 years with no issues. Its only rated at 55 watt but is high current, and outperforms any pioneer, jbl etc 100 watt a channel basic system by far. The only pioneer Ive found with the same sound and quality was on the elite 100 watt a channel, and basically all these receivers are 800-1000 for this quality.
Summary: I love this receiver, the sound is unbelievable, and i work in music so i know sound. I found its setup and operation ridiculously simple and had no problem tossing the directions and intuitively setting everything up, not to mention the clever features i discovered while doing so. Oh, and the iPod'bridge' is a dream x 10!
Summary: I bought the unit less than two years ago. It started great, but then the sound stopped working on occasion when we would turn it on when associated with a video feed. We'd need to turn it off and turn it on again to get it working. That occurred about 1 year ago and nearly every time we used it. Then two weeks ago all audio stopped for the video feed. It would work for the radio but not any of the methods of getting video in and out including HDMI and component.
Summary: For my experiences, I had one at home, I love it, it make a creating the high definition pictures and sound, compare with another band of receiver,Thank you for sold this products for me, I know this model is getting old, but it doing great, and I love the price so low,once again I'M totally satisfied.
Summary: There's plenty of clean power to drive speakers, but I find the sound a little bright at times. I prefer my old denon receiver to this one, but the hk offers much more power. However, this power means that the receiver puts out a ridiculous amount of heat. It could easily function as a space heater in smaller rooms.
Summary: This is my second Harman Kardon AVR 347. The first brand new receiver stopped passing the video signal of my surround sound set up within 6 months. I had originally hooked up the system using component video cables since I did not have an HD television and was watching SD television. I returned the product and Harman Kardon replaced it with a refurbished AVR347. I was disappointed that it was not a new receiver since I had it for less than 6 months.
