Happy costomer
 
The AVR 340 proved to be as impressive as the reviews I had read about it. I compared it to the Yahama 6900 series and Bose Lifestyle 18. The power rating of 65W/ch was comparable to the 140W/ch of the Yhamaha. Set up was easy however I got better results setting up the speaker output manually as opposed to using the systems built in EZ-setup feature. The i pod docking station station is a definite plus. It give you instant access to your ipod using the receiver remote. The song list and menu a...

Not Reliable
 
I bought this model right after it was available in Dec last year. Initially it worded great. But after only two months, all the audio inputs do not work. I have to pay for the shipping for the exchange under the warranty. One more thing I like to point out. AM/FM radio receiption wasn't that great -- due to the relative low sensitivity. Wouldn't recommand it.

Unreliable, Quit After 2 Months
 
I like the receiver but it died after only two months. It randomly shuts down. The kicker is there aren't any service centers in the San Francisco Bay Area (2nd or 3rd largest metropolitan area in the country) and I have to ship this heavy paperweight on my own dime. Also, Harman Kardon has some of the rudest service center/tech support reps I've spoken with. Thought I was buying the best...

An O.K. unit, but I expected more.
 
The H.K. AVR-340 is Heavy. At first look and feel it seems to be built rather well. Some of the things that I found later that were of poor quality were the instruction book to set it up properly. It was, in my judgement, poorly written. A loy of the set up became "try this and see if it works".There was a sticker on the front panel that said "Remove after unpacking". Unfortunately this is difficult. I pulled to get it off, but only the top layer of tape came off. I scraped withmy thumb nail fo...

Great SOUND!!!
 
Let me begin by saying I have owned several A/V and Stereo receivers over the years. I'm a retired electronic tech and appreciate good quality electronics. What you may call a moderate priced audiophile.I usually go for the Yamaha's or Denon's for quality build, sound and price. This is my first HK and I must say it outperforms both. The sound is a much more full richer sound (more tube like for those who are old enough to remember) and does not strain at higher volume levels. Do some searching...

NIICE!
 
Okay, I like this amp.I recently had a Panasonic surround receiver die, and I decided it was time to get a big boy amp, something built to last longer than a couple of years.So, first of all, the setup.I hate to say this, but no surround amp is at all easy to set up. All those speakers require a lot of wires, and all the hookups have to be done.The 340 was no worse than anything else I've done. The microphone for setting-up the volumes and equalization seems to have done a rather nice job, thoug...

Awesome Receiver
 
I just got the avr340 and I am loving it. I love the fact that I can be watching a movie and have a different source be playing in our patio for the kids to entertain. The EZ speaker set up option makes configuring your speakers a breeze. The remote can be alittle overwhelming but over all its great.

fantastic sound - very bad user interface
 
I had the Bose 5.1 all in one system which cost $2000, this one has much much better full (rich) sound quality than Bose!!!I buy this for only $1000 in Costco.I tried a $180 audio toslink cable from audioquest (optilink-3), which had improved sound over a $70 monster cable in Best Buy.this receiver would has alot depth in it's campabitlity if you can spend on opital cable.I run cable from optical output in my notebook and plays CD quality music, much better quality with different cable.again Bo...

This was shipped to me in June 2006, since when it has worked flawlessly for an average of more than 8 hours per day.This receiver replaced a 5.1 unit which was rated at 120 W RMS per channel, and I was rather concerned that the output of this receiver would be barely sufficient. I believe HK rate their receivers' outputs per channel with ALL channels running concurrently and handling a similar load, whereas most other brands are rated with only that one channel running - hence the comparatively...
