User Review

ActiveDuke a Casual Listener, Audio Review
17 April 2011
  • Summary: Weak Power supply and it is super sensitive radio signals. Very good looking but have already bought myself a new one tomorrow..Yamaha. Did not get the stupid remote when i bought it so dont know much about the adjustments missing. If you want a good looking amp...HK is best. But if you are looking for sound in this price range..go for Yamaha or Marantz.

Harman/Kardon AVR 340 7.1 Receiver

patburt-2007, Ebay
1 December 2010
  • Summary: I Like this receiver because it has a very clean sound. It's very hard to understand the operating instructions, unless you know what your doing. It should have a "quick set-up guide" for people who don't have a good understanding of tecnicle terms. I bought this receiver because I know about stereo equipment, I only wish I could have aforded a little more power. All in all, I'm very sattisfied with the receiver, and my exsperience with eBay.

  • Summary: This item is as good as new. Everything works and it sound great. The price was great. The surround processing is all I can handle. The 50 watts RMS is totally under rated. This thing is powerful.

  • Summary: This was shipped to me in June 2006, since when it has worked flawlessly for an average of more than 8 hours per day. This receiver replaced a 5.1 unit which was rated at 120 W RMS per channel, and I was rather concerned that the output of this receiver would be barely sufficient. I believe HK rate their receivers' outputs per channel with ALL channels running concurrently and handling a similar load, whereas most other brands are rated with only that one channel running...

Satisfaction Guaranteed!

  • Summary: I bought this receiver because my old Technics receiver went completely dead. Harmon Kardon was a step up and I am completely satisfied with the product I received. It is such a pleasure to be able to play my iPod through the receiver. The power this unit possess is much more than I anticipated as well. On of the best purchases I've made.

fantastic sound - very bad user interface

  • Summary: I had the Bose 5.1 all in one system which cost $2000, this one has much much better full (rich) sound quality than Bose!!! I buy this for only $1000 in Costco. I tried a $180 audio toslink cable from audioquest (optilink-3), which had improved sound over a $70 monster cable in Best Buy. this receiver would has alot depth in it's campabitlity if you can spend on opital cable.

HK AVR 340

rkmii, Ebay
3 June 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the AVR to replace an aging Sony A/V unit. The AVR was rated at a lower wattage, however I read a few reviews and one stated that HK measures the wattage with all channels powered. As it stands right now I have the 340 running Klipsch speakers, and yes it did seem very hard to get lots of sound out of it to a certain point.

Great SOUND!!!

  • Summary: Let me begin by saying I have owned several A/V and Stereo receivers over the years. I'm a retired electronic tech and appreciate good quality electronics. What you may call a moderate priced audiophile. I usually go for the Yamaha's or Denon's for quality build, sound and price. This is my first HK and I must say it outperforms both.

Harman Kardon AVR 340

rogerfromco, Ebay
10 February 2007
  • Summary: I have to agree with the previous reviewer that the down side is no HDMI input. But let me add a couple of more problems I have run into. I have my TV & Receiver connected via the 1080i component cables. When you use the EZ Setup for the surround sound, you have to have the receiver and TV connected via a 480i connection to see the on screen menu and go through the set up process.
