254 or 2600?
 
After 10 years of faithful service, my AVR-45 digital processor finally kicked the can. I put up with 2 channel bypass mode sound for about a week before deciding to buy a new receiver. My 10 years with a great HK AVR led me to a decision: should I buy last year's AVR-254 or this year's 2600? Ultimately I went with the 2600 for a few reasons. One, the Dolby Volume feature - it's really nice to be able to set a volume and not have the commercials blaring at me. Two, I read all of the reviews on t...

Good upgrade over the AVR254
 
Recently upgraded to the AVR2600 after owning the previous model AVR254 for a year. They have really fixed all the quirks I had over last years model. Features such as Dolby Volume and HDMI bypass are very welcome including finally the addition of a USB port instead of DB9 serial for future firmware upgrades. Anyone who's tried flashing a AVR254 knows what I mean. Dolby Volume makes a huge difference when it comes to leveling commercial volumes between shows and switching between inputs. HDMI by...

Vastly improved, real theater sound versus cheap receiver
 
I'm not an audiophile, so I won't (can't) get into technical stuff. After much research I chose this model and was lucky enough to get it at a huge discount from J&R. It replaces a lower end Pioneer receiver I had for 11 years. I recently upgraded the speakers but didn't really notice that big a difference, except in the subwoofer. This is the most advanced receiver I've ever owned and the sound quality is noticeably and vastly improved over my old Pioneer. Now it really sounds like a theater sy...

THE AVR-2600 is friggen awesome!
 
THE AVR-2600 is friggen awesome!...how's that?Like any receiver, you can spend a good amount of time setting this one up, and getting everything right. Harman/Kardon has done a lot to help with the graphical user interface and a very clean and easy to use OSD which is digitally converted and upscale by the receiver so that you do not need to run an analog cable to see the OSD...you can see it right through your HDMI if you want. The easy EQ Setup is okay -- it was very good at gauging speaker ...

HK dropped the ball
 
I used to be a big Harman Kardon fan since the mid 80's when i worked part time for an electronics chain called the Stereo Warehouse. I always felt that they produced a rock solid and fantastic sounding product regardless if it were for home or mobile audio. Heck. I still own a CA260 car amp that blows away the crap they make today. However. HK dropped the ball where the AVR 2600 and the 3600 receivers are concerned. When the first batch of these receivers hit the market I was recommending them...

great overall, but some annoying design drawbacks
 
While overall I love this unit for its sound quality, design, and gee-whiz factor, it has some small but very annoying design drawbacks.1. It can't send digital audio to Zone 2, so if you want to play digital audio in the main room but intend to use the receiver to feed additional speakers in other rooms, it can't play that digital source in Zone 2 (or out any of the receiver's other RCA outputs!). The only way to make it work is to have a second, parallel analog signal fed into the receiver to ...

I reluctantly returned it to a seller allied with Amazon
 
I gave it a good try. After studying the manual and quick start guide for days, I still was unable to get any of the HDMI inputs to work on my own. I went through a troubleshooting routine on phone with H-K rep and it was determined that my logical first choice of the four input HDMI jacks was defective.After getting acquainted with this receiver in the process and finally getting it to work, I have a few thoughts for prospective buyers to think about.Pros:Sleek handsome case. Great sound, plen...

Just awful...
 
Let me start by saying I am a huge HK fan, so it breaks my hear to have to review this unit so poorly.I had several problems with this thing I was not able to resolve:* The audio drops out the first half second any time the video or audio signal starts, stops, or changes in any way. This is unacceptable when listening to music. You miss the beginning of each song.* When connected to a PS3 my video signal would flicker with snow (I 'm serious!) perhaps once a second. After about 60 seconds the...

A Piece of Junk
 
I bought this item back in March, and had trouble from the start. My fault for not returning it sooner, I know. When watching a DVD (Blu-Ray or otherwise) the picture and sound would occasionally cut out completely, for several seconds. Sometimes when this happens, the "blackout" lasts for several minutes. Not much fun watching a movie when I have to keep my finger on the pause button of the DVD remote to stop the disc when the picture cuts off. HK Support says something about an HDMI compatibil...

Beware of Amazon refunds
 
I purchased this item. It was working fine. After Amazon's return policy, the product failed to put out sound in HDMI. Amazon stated that because it was past their refund/exchange date, I would have to mail the product to their fulfillment center and "they" would determine what the refund amount would be. To make it short and sweet "they" decided to value the product almost $100 less than what I payed for it. What was I supposed to do? Have them ship it back in worse condition than what I ...
