Summary: This is an outstanding receiver! I use it in my basement to power some Bose speakers and outdoor Yamaha speakers for the pool. The sound is great, and there is more than enough power. I would highly recommend this receiver for anyone looking for a non-surround sound receiver.
Summary: I bought a reconditioned H/K 3385 receiver over 6 weeks ago for my business. Upon receiving, the stereo worked fine for 1 day, then after that would cut out the sound after an hour of use. Spent days trying to figure out why. Even had an audio tech come in, but could find no reason. Took it down to an authorized H/K service center. They told me even though they could fix the problem and the unit was still under warranty, H/K would not authorize them to work on it.
As usual Harmon Kardon receives are great. and steady

Summary: They perform perfectly, have many features not found in other receivers, and are priced competitively. The only receiver I have gotten great pleasure from since my first tube type H.K. in 1964. Buy one ,,, you will love it.
Summary: Although my 30 year old Pioneer SX-850 still works great, I bought this HK for the convenience of remote control and digital tuning. I have to say that this receiver doesn't perform as well as my analog Pioneer but is still very good at producing high quality stereo sound from multiple sources. Pros: One reason I chose the HK is that I was able to connect all of my audio equipment to it. It has more audio inputs than any other brand stereo receiver I've found.
Summary: Surround sound this. 7.1 that. Dual center channels. Sound that kicks the back of your head. The modern enhancements that liven up our favorite TV shows and college football Saturdays (not to forget all those Blu-Ray action flixs) can be an absolute 'Wow!" for our senses. New music releases along with satellite radio sound utterly fantastic, too.
Summary: I have the receiver plugged into 2 Pro Dynamics MDZ 2900's and 2 Polk Audio 8100's and an Infinity Entra Sub, sounds totally awesome!!!!!! Killer receiver for home use, hell I could open a club with this system.
Summary: The hk 3385 revceiver is ok,thats all.It has very limited bass and treble control and no bass boost or super bass control.Also the balance control only works left and right and has no fade for speakers A and B. It sounds a little tinny even with high quality speakers.RCA plugs are a must for speakers because the speaker hook ups are very close together and almost impossible to screw in by hand.
Summary: With all the efforts I have put in over many years of constant upgrading my stereos, I find that this unit has a substantially better sound quality then I had even hoped for, is sharp to look at, has a smoother sound than other amps I have owned, and is easily one of the best sounding systems I have heard. I use it with my Sennheiser headphones and it reveals such subtleties that it would be hard to imagine any improvement available at any price.
