Harman Kardon AVR 1710
This review is from: Harman Kardon AVR 1710 7.2-Channel Receiver
Pros: Excellent system at a lower price range. This is my 7th receiver and 4th Harman Kardon receiver. I'm very discerning when it come to audio (been into audio for last 30 years and I'm very techie too :-))
Cons: Kind of expensive at MSRP!
Other Thoughts: I started with a Sony receiver long time ago but dumped it within a month after comparing with a Harman Kardon. Recently I bought 2 very high end Denon receivers but even after keeping them for 2 weeks and adjusting every possible setting, I could not get impressive sound out of either of them - they just sounded muffled. Then bought 1710 not sure how it'll sound because it was a lot cheaper than other units I have bought in the past. The Denons had an MSRP of $1,200 and $900. All my previous HK receivers had an MSRP of over $700. On top of that HK website has conflicting specs on it - at one place it says THD of 0.07% but at another place it say 10% (which is unacceptable).

Simple done well...
This review is from: Harman Kardon AVR 1510 5.1 Channel Networked AV Receiver
Pros: Simple setup
Cons: Cheap remote
Other Thoughts: This is turning out to be one of the most difficult reviews to write. I like the 1510, but at the same time, I would have trouble recomending it for the MSRP. It seems to me that at $300, it is overpiced. But, what you do get will help you speakers sound quite nice.
