Summary: I got mine on eBay.Used of course. I had read more bad than good on this model. Heat is usually the problem with things that seem to work fine...and die. I put a small 4 inch cage fan on the back,pointing down.Plugged into the "switched" outlet and WOW.
Summary: If you are looking for sound quality then this is your beast. I seem to only mess with H/K or marantz and this is the best sounding unit of everything I have owned. Its short fall is the amp. Its like my wife, it needs plenty of room to vent off the heat. I found this out when my amp board went bad.
Summary: I just wanted to add my input on this receiver. It has never given me problems. The sound quality is amazing. I use it to watch movies and listen to music and I couldn't ask for a better sound.
Summary: This was in impulse buy. I saw a piece of equipment originally listed at $1800 going for twenty bucks. Seller explained that the amplifier module was removed for the picture and everything would be up to snuff when the module was replaced...replaced with a NEW D2audio amp module, that is!
Summary: As far as the issue about shutting off, mine did it once a few years back and I (honestly) knocked it pretty hard on the side and have never had the problem since. When it comes to sound quality it is absolutely the best I have ever had. Plenty of power and very smooth midrange.
Summary: I had been looking for a new receiver to upgrade my home theatre system, and after extensive research, both online and in stores such as Sony, Fry's Electronics and Best Buy, I decided to get this one.
Summary: I purchased a new in box, never used, DPR-2005 which worked fine for about 2 months. It was never abused or operated at high levels. One day, it switched itself off after about 4 seconds after turn-on. The amplifier output module (which contains all 7 channels inside) failed.
ALL DIGITAL PATH PROCESSING and a POWERFULL 120 WATT x 7 JUGGERNAUT!

Summary: This is one of the most amazing pieces of sonic engineering HARMAN KARDON ever created. Since they own Mark Levinson and Lexicon, both high end pro gear manufacturers, they were in a unique position to create something truly special, and in an unheard of lower profile than ordinary manufacturers.
Summary: Best sounding unit I ever had. Beware the Digital Output Amplifier Seems To die. Also the digital amplifier is not repairable and you must replace the entire modual. very expensive to maintain.
Resetting the processor solves the power off issue.

Summary: I've had my DPR 2005 since they were brand new and it has been a great receiver. The only issue I've had was with the unit randomly shutting off after owning it a few years. I could power it back on but it would immediately shut off again.
