    Hello! I cannot complain about my HK AVR-635..it has been a powerhouse for like 8 years at least, but I have been considering a newer receiver to use the built in calibration options. My fears are how powerful something like the TX SR 705 is going to be compared to my Harman Kardon. I mean REAL...

    I woke up on the couch in the early morning and smelled burnt electrical. I went around the room and tried to locate its source to no avail. When I turned on my Hardon Kardon AVR 8000 today it just flashes the display then turns itself back off, then I smell that burnt electrical odor again...

  5. Two Channel Audio
    I was wondering what the crossover setting is on this amp? What hz. goes to the speakers and what hz. goes to subs ? Is it determined by my sub crossover setting. Which I have set at 80hz. Amp is a 2 channel, 2 subout out configuration. Harmon Kardon 3490. Thanks.:hsd:
  6. Audio Processing
    I am using a Harman Kardon 3490 amp with built in AKM PCM DAC. I am using a LG BP 200 blu-ray player to play CDs in a 2 channel set-up. Would I hear a noticeable improvement with a med. quality dedicated cd player. I am currently using coaxial out from blu-ray player to coaxial in on...

  9. General Service and Technical Information
    Hi. I got an old Harman Kardon 630 stereo receiver for cheap. Unfortunately, the left channel of both speaker outs is audibly louder than the right channel. I swapped the fuses for the right and left channels but the issue persists. Is there any additional troubleshooting I can do other than...

  11. Great Deals and Specials
    This seems like a great deal here. If you purchase a 7.1 speaker package from World Wide Stereo (which appear to be all Klipsch), then you get a Harman Kardon AVR 2600 receiver for free. And their Klipsch packages are the better ones with pretty good discounts. You have to use the coupon code...

    Hi! I have a HK AVR-635 which I love...very strong but it lacks HDMI for decoding Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD. I am sending the movies from my computer so I was trying to upgrade so I was either thinking on getting a Bluray player with analog outputs or getting a "new" receiver like an Onkyo 805...
  14. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hello! So my beloved AVR-635 has no HDMI so no DOLBY TRUE HD or DTS HD Master. I have been considering a replacement on a budget. Maybe a HK AVR354 or an Onkyo 805 ..used and cheap is my goal. I love the HK power and sound but it seems the most recent ones are very low weight so I like to stick...

    Have been using a Harman Kardon AVR 347 happily for a while now. Recently I started getting this terrible distortion out of my front left speaker. The first time, I reached around back of the unit and checked the cable, the distortion stopped. Now about twice a week it starts back. What I have...
  16. REW Forum
    Hi Guys! Well today I tried to embarked on a new challenge. That being measuring my HK 254's EZSET EQ's Freq response versus a manual setup.

    So...I've posted before that I own an Onkyo TX-SR876 and a Harman Kardon AVR-247. The Onkyo is powering a set of Rocket 5.0s and an MFW-15, and they will soon be powering another pair of speakers (Tekton Audio, maybe?) in zone 2. The AVR-247 is currently powering my ELT525M's. I really like...

    Why do the HK recievers have a low wattage rating per channel. The avr 35 i have is 40w per channel yet seems louder than same or cheaper 100w or 120w per channel recievers. I notice that even the newer ones have lower ratings like 50w. Then it says high current. the avr 35 is way louder and...
