Harmon Kardon sound and home theater convenience
 
Pros: excellent sound for both movies and music; very powerful considering the wattage rating; full array of surround sound options to improve various audio experiences; convenience of HDMI hub; upconversion of lower quality signalsCons: updating the firmware was a pain... but entirely worth it -- this receiver has been nothing but pleasure ever since the update_______________________I purchased the AVR-254 a few weeks ago along with a center channel speaker. I'm running ...

Big Bang For Your Buck
 
This is the best receiver in its price range, period. For a mid-level receiver, this unit has features often found in higher-end models. Out of the box, setup was a snap. Directions are clear and easy to flow. The included microphone for the EZ setup made calibrating this unit a breeze. The sound is phenomenal. Crisp highs and deep lows. Plenty of power for the user looking to bring their speakers to life. The High Definition on-screen interface makes adjusting the AVRs features simple, and user...

Great Receiver with Bad Rep
 
I've had my receiver for about 4 months now.I have read a bunch of reviews on this receiver and I hear nothing but complaints on the PS3 issue and the "Loud" fan. Just to begin with, I haven't updated my firmware yet, and will do as soon as I get a USB to Serial connector...which is the one thing I dislike. Though, I figure if you can figure out how to hook it up, you'll know enough not to mess it up. So I can't complain too much. Almost a smart move.The fan is loud i...

Would be the king of the hill, if it just worked...
 
I spent several months researching my new receiver for my home theater. I spent countless hours hanging out on the avsforum, read everything I could about receivers. I was looking for a receiver that would have the following features:- at least 2 HDMI inputs- great sound quality for music as well as movies- HD audio codecs (Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA) support- would cost $650 MSRP or lessThe choice is clear:- Onkyo 606 or 705- Yamaha 663

Buggy and Unstable
 
I am an audio video installer who recently decided to give the Harman/Kardon receivers a try due to the amazing features for the price. Of the two AVR-254 units that I installed, not one has lasted more than two months without needing to be swapped. Here is a description of what happened with each:1st unit: I was super impressed by the features on this unit on the initial install and thought that I have found an incredible bargain for my customers. Over the next few weeks the picture...

Great product
 
First I bought a Yamaha from Best Buy - DOA. Then I got a Sony because thats what they had. Opened the box and found out it was used. Took it back and go a refund. Bought the AVR-254. What great product. I read the manual from cover to cover and was ready to do every thing it suggested but decided to see what it would do by just hooking it up to my Bose speaker system and listen. I bought it for a home theater. From the moment I turned it on it found all of my other equipment and played ...

Earth Shattering
 
OMG....the only reason i bought this one is coz it looks extremely slick. when i connected two tower speakers, no audio :( tried almost an hour and later found that i had inserted the mic infront of the receiver. As soon as i took it out, the sound was golden. Just two tower speakers with dolby surround-wide sounds like 7.1. Then i hooked up two more surround speakers and holy god.....it's earth shattering. I watched transformers and just 4 speakers are kickin' the back. I have ordered Polk PRo...

Beautiful, but flawed
 
Let's start out with the good. The HK AVR 254 is gorgeous. It looks fantastic; it sounds exquisite; and it's even a non-issue to get set up and running (the user interface is extremely easy and pleasing to the eye). There are plenty of inputs. It has pre-outs (for sending to a separate, more powerful amplifier). It's also powerful. The humble power ratings don't tell it all, the amp in this thing has something special (as most HK amps do I believe). It could effortlessly drive most speake...

This Review Section Should Split Into Pre & Post Firmware Update
 
Simply put, this is a fantastic receiver that was initially released with absolutely horrible firmware which caused a lot of problems. The firmware has since been updated (quite a while ago) and the problems have disappeared. Thus, if this is one of the receivers you're considering, you need not be afraid to buy it. The problems are gone and all that remain are the benefits.
