Awesome sound, but user hostile

Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: The sound from this unit is delightful; warm, full, and LOUD if you want it. HOWEVER, unless you are a seriously dedicated digital user, this unit will seem nearly impossible to use. If you are over 40 years old, and think this will be like setting up an ordinary stereo, then get something else! This puppy is a powerful computer with a boatload of power, and if you can't figure out how to tune the speakers (9 of them) it can be terribly frustrating.

They don't make them like this anymore

  • Summary: What can I say this is or was Harman Kardon's flagship receiver. It may not have all the most current features of some of the more modern ones out but...
  • Pros: Looks, sound, powerful, 7.2, well built and heavy
  • Cons: I love it i have no complaints

An AVR with outstanding sound Quality.

arnettpartners, Ebay
11 May 2013
  • Summary: The sound quality of this HK avr7550hd is excellent--very pleasant and listenable. I have used processor out to my HK990 integrated, and the preamp and DAC are impressive. The only outboard DAC I have is a MF V-DAC but the avr7750hd's DAC is clearly superior. I have used this avr to biamp my vintage AR9's as well. It is rated 110w x 2 and 100w x 7--very beefy amp. Network connectivity is my favorite feature.

Highly Symetrical

N. Demir Kupeli, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: A wonderful design possesing supersymetry like sphere or space. Definitely wondering the modulations of amplitudes (current) AM and frequencies (voltage) FM. Wish to had some more ears! Yet I believe it will sound rather different at each seat of the room or saloon for both tastes: Digital (split constant current) and analog (split constant frequency). In both cases AM and FM will take place simultanously yet sounding rather different at each part of the room or saloon.

A bit out dated and pricey

  • Summary: AVR looks nice. It is, however, outdated (HDMI inputs, and speaker arrangements), for its price. Ended up returning it for an Onkyo.

Great when it works

Into good things, Amazon
16 November 2012
  • Summary: I had an AVR-7550 for about 10 months and it was great. But, all good things must come to an end and it stopped working. First the rear channels went, then no sound at all. The warranty was still in effect. I brought it to the HK repair centre myslef. Once fixed, HK called and I asked that it be shipped. Well, UPS lost the receiver, I finally got their cheque and bought an ONKYO TX-NR-1009, a nine-channel 110 watts/channel receiver. Sounds a lot better!!

  • Summary: Excellent, powerful AVR. Has all the features I wanted and needed. Added 120mm fan to the top and keeps it cool with even an all day movie or music use. Well worth the money IMO.
