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.
Summary: My AVR 347 was wonderful at first, but shortly after the warranty expired, it start to fail. It would occasionally flash "Protect" on the front panel then shutdown. Originally, the receiver would do this every few hours, but now, it won't stay on for more than a couple of minutes.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I love the way the Harman Kardon receivers look. The transparent front that looks black when powered off and the blue lighted button really make my theater system look sweet. There are a few things about this receiver that really irritate me. First, the HDMI situation.
Summary: I purchased the receiver open box from Fry's here in Houston and was lucky enough to get the remote and about $200 off of the retail price when purchased in July 2008. First impression: excellent build quality and I was the envy of all my friends who are HK fanatics.
Summary: I received my new receiver in just a few days. Setup took about an hour between disconnection my old receiver and plugging everything back in. The onscreen guide was a breeze. I have never had a microphone to let the system set up my speakers. Everything sounds better then ever.
Summary: I have recently been sucked into the high def A/V game and in the last 3 months have been through a Yamaha v661, an Onkyo 705 an Onkyo 804, and now the HK 347. Think I needed a receiver that could process LPCM over HDMI?
