FYI - Updated!!
 
Got this in the mail a couple of weeks ago. It is a very attractive unit, couple of things I don't care for.1. Can't ever turn off the bright power on light. Apparently some people couldn't remember to turn off the unit when they killed the display, so now I have this bright white light that won't turn off.2. HDMI passthrough only kinda works. The main reason I bought this thing was to pass HDMI from my various devices through the single source (and for its audio sync cap...

Attractive Design and Reasonable Sound, but Unmitigated HDMI disaster and lacking basic features
 
A few months ago, I compared roughly $500 receivers from Pioneer, Onkyo, and Denon at winstonsreviews. At first glance, the Onkyo TX SR608 edged out the Pioneer VSX-1020, but longer term testing revealed that the Onkyo had a few persistent gremlins affecting video quality unless the volume/source onscreen display was disabled.This comparison remains one of the more popular posted on the website, so I thought I would add the entry-level Harman Kardon receiver to the fray. The AVR 1600...

Elegant Look & Sound
 
-Revision-There has been some confusion as to the actual power rating for this receiver. The website and download-able manual both say 50W per channel. However, the paper manual that came with my AVR1600 says only 35W per channel (page 5.) I have contacted a Harman Kardon rep to get to the bottom of this all and he confirmed that it was actually rated at 35W per channel and the marketing description was an error. WHO REALLY KNOWS WHAT TO BELIEVE! With that said, it is worth mentioning...

Does not work well with some components
 
I am not an audiophile but I know what I like in a sound system. Been a fan of Harman Kardon for many years.I recently decided to retire an aging HK receiver and decided on the AVR 1600. I was not all that interested in video upscaling, purchased a very nice ipod dock with a universal remote and did not require the additional power - so I had no need for the higher end models.After hooking up the HK AVR1600 to my TV (Samsung LED), xbox 360 and cable box/dvr all via HDMI, everything w...

IT IS 50 WATTS PER CHANNEL!!! READ THE MANUAL!!! Page 51
 
I will be receiving this product in 3 days. I usually do not review before I receive the product but I am tired of people posting what little reviews are out with false info. Go and read the manual..... its 50 X 7........ that is 50 watts per channel. Also, this receiver can take up to Max of 540 watts. That means peak of 77 watts per channel when the avr is maxing out. Like usual, HK will not rate the max watt output like most and list that is the watts per channel..... and that includes the bi...

Great Receiver after Firmware Update!
 
This is a great receiver for the money.Let me start by addressing all the issues in the other reviews:1) The video problems through the HDMI cable are now fixed via a new firmware update version 1.1 that you can download from Harman Kardon.2) I just checked the manual and the receiver is 35 watts per channel. But don't let that fool you. Harman Kardon is very conservative in their rating, and the 35 watts is at average and not max wattage like most other com...

Almost Perfect!
 
Over the last several years I have gone from self proclaimed hard core audiophile with expensive amps, processors, cables, and speakers to a guy who is just looking for the best I can get for the least amount of money. Amazing how much a person can spend on all the peripherals to obtain so called audiophile sound when at times there are components available that can get you most of the way there without taking out a second mortgage on the house. This receiver is one such component. Having just s...

Thank you for your inquiry. As of now, the AVR 1600 will not have the HDMI 1.4A software upgrade.
 
"Thank you for your inquiry. As of now, the AVR 1600 will not have the HDMI 1.4A software upgrade." This is the answer that I got back from HK. Hope they will do the upgrade in the near future.

Defective Product, HDMI problems, Horrible Customer Care
 
I wish I had listened to other people pointing out the HDMI problems with this unit. AVR 1600 cannot handle HDMI run-through .After installing the wall speakers and mounting the HDTV I was about to put it the centerpiece , AVR 1600, and sit back and relax. But who would think that the most basic capability of an AVR , i.e. getting HDMI signals from different devices and sending it to the TV, could be defective?I connected a ROKU player and my laptop to HDMI inputs and the HDMI output...

Best Bang For Your Buck
 
I have purchased several AV receivers in my excursion into the home audio world, and I would have to say this one takes the cake. It was very cheap ($350) and it sounds like a much more expensive unit. I have this receiver hooked up to JBL Series L830 bookshelves, LC1 center and L810 surrounds and let me tell you, it blows me away. The clarity and production of the surround sound, even from a mediocre signal from my laptop sounds better than anything I have ever had in the past.The s...
