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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: This receiver looks great and is very heavy but looks is not all that matters to me like with some.I am replacing a 1995 radioshack brand(Optimus) with this receiver and i really thought i was going to be blown away by this receiver.My old receiver was rated at 250 watts RMS(R/L 2x50watts center...
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.
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.
