Very Disappointing Product and Documentation
 
I was under whelmed with this unit. As stated in the previous review, this is a very expensive pass through for HDMI signals. The documentation was miserable to follow often referring the user to diagrams on pages 3+ pages away -- leads to constant flipping through the manual. The user's manual was obviously written by an engineer and very difficult to follow. I tried to set up my 6.1 Bose System and repeated attempts failed. When I attempted to get help from Harmon Kardon, they didn't even ...

hdmi benefits not reached
 
I rated this item low because I did not get the supposed benefits of having two hdmi inputs and the very arrogant behavior of the Harman Kardon web support. Firstly, AVR 445 did not process just pass-through hdmi signal. Consequently, it is necessary to connect redundant video cables in order you can see OSD setup menus. Then, cabling simplification is not true. Secondly, AVR 445 did not send signal from its hdmi output to hdmi TV input ("no signal present") when you toggle between hdmi1 and hdm...

what more could you want
 
This is a fantastic piece of equipment! Its easy to hook up and easy to operate. The instruction book is easy to understand. This is the perfect companion to my big screen TV and it puts a big smile on my face every time I watch a movie.

It is a great product !!
 
As stated by some of the reviews the avr445 does not process hdmi signals. Well if you just read the specs it states that it is only a pass through for HDMI. If you are going to spend that much money on something dont you think you should read the specs first. I am very very happy with mine. The instruction are a tad bit mixed up but it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure them out, just some patiance. And in the end it is worth the hassle. This thing sounds great. I have used sony,panasonic...

HDMI VS SOUND
 
If you're wanting good HDMI processing then look for another receiver. If you want superior sound, then consider this one. The EQ mic provided does a superb job of auto EQ. Of course speakers matter. I have a 10 year old Bose system with non powered sub. I had to add a sub to make them sound good but now they work great with this receiver. Prior recievers owned were Pioneer, Yamaha and Dennon. The Harman/Kardon sounds better than all those. I will next purchase the upper end Harman with the HDMI...

Great sound, features not so much
 
Excellent sound, but poor on features. I usually buy equipment to last as many years as reasonably possible, and this HK has proven to be somewhat of a failure in that regard. HDMI inputs don't support any of the usually used audio formats on blu-rays (I'm not sure if they actually support any audio format at all). No 3D. This has forced me to use external audio decoder - after that I've discovered that HK doesn't support bass management for analog audio inputs. Finally, I've had to use HK purel...
