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: 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 got this received because I had a PS3 and a HD-DVD player, but only one HDMI input on my television. I had also upgraded my speakers recently, and figured this would be a nice match for my new 5.1 system. What a let-down. What a HUGE let-down.
Summary: I had major problems with the HDMI inputs. I had a PS3 and TW cable connected to this unit via HDMI. With the cable, i had issues turning channels. The screen becomes blank (blue screen) sometimes and I have to keep in flipping thought the channels or turn the unit on and off before I get get a...
