    Hk 630

    What modes are you using? Are you using the OSD for you setup? I had the same thing happen when I first tried using my AVR320. Be sure to read the manual thoroughly. The HK AVRs can be very complex for the beginner Home Theater hobbyist, private message me and I can walk you through your setup.

    Harmon/Kardon AVR630 vs Denon 3805

    Actual power vs. Factory rate power… HK is very conservative when rating there receivers while most other manufactures overate there receivers (some by a lot). Also HK rates the receivers all channels driven most do just one.

    I'm surprised no one has mention Paradigm.

    Nautilus 802 vs. Infinity Prelude MTS

    I would pic the N802 out of these 2 but I would also consider Paradigm Reference Signature.

    Is it worth spending $3K on used B&W????

    Even if they warranty won't cover the gasket it will be cheap to replace. If you like'em get'em.

    Pardigm Monitor 7 Floor Standing & CC370 Center Channel

    I have Paradigm monitor 9's with the CC370 and I love them. Great bang for the buck. I have also heard good things about Swan also but if the price is right get the Paradigms you won't be disapointed.

    HK AVR430 won't play test tones during EZSet

    Hate to say it but it's operator error. Don't worry because it took me a while to figure it out also.

    help me decide which receiver!

    Sorry about your experience with HK. My AVR320 has worked for three years without a glitch. If you do choose to go with another receiver you can't go wrong with Marantz or Denon. BTW the only time my HK would shut is when I had it plugged into a wall sock next to a light switch and turned my...

    Going crazy-Panasonic sa xr45 or HK avr330?

    Help: I think my receiver sucks:

    I agree with you but I believe moving from a low to midgrade receiver has a bigger bennifit than moving from low to mid grade speakers without a change in amplication.

    Going crazy-Panasonic sa xr45 or HK avr330?

    john seitz, Yep they don't have carry them anymore so I contacted someone who has the XR25 that's local to me for a comparo. You mention that the HK DPR1001 doesn't sorce as well. where is this published, that would be an interesting read. Right now it looks like a bunch of hyperbole...

    Wayne Ernst I took them down because I wanted to takje a listen before I posted next. And Yes I am more inclined to believe Kendrid you can read his post here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...r&pagenumber=7 I also completly believe that Nicholas R is an idiot or a fanboy at best.

    $300 to spend...

    I built this system going on 3 years ago and added the Anthem PVA7 about a year ago also. So prices are little foggy and will be off a little or maybe a lot. I paid about half for my open box HK320 around $400.00 I paid retail for all my Paradigms (except my new sub)like an idiot. i...

    Going crazy-Panasonic sa xr45 or HK avr330?

    just read the Newform and I don't belive it at all. I will have to hear it for my self. there is just to much in the article that doesn't make sense. Are any major publications that are doing reviews? I'm going to Circuit City tomorrow to listen for my self.

    Going crazy-Panasonic sa xr45 or HK avr330?

    Maybe to your ears but I'm still sceptical at best. After reading the specs I'm even more sceptical. The whole unit weights 9.2lbs...how can these little amps make 100w/channel.

    Speakers: Please recommend...

    Check this out for HK refurb products, they come with full manufacturer's warranty. http://stores.ebay.com/Harman-Audio_...enameZl2QQtZkm

    $300 to spend...

    I would wait the 8 months and used that extra $300 on a better sub, speaker package, or receiver. You would end up happier that way. My friend got a Sony HT-6600DP HTiB he said it should sound better than My HK AVR320 Paradigm Monitor setup because it has more watts. Hate to say it but I...

    Help: I think my receiver sucks:

    First off I don't put any stock in website like audioholics. Second you named on the most efficient speaker brands out there. I'm sorry if you power a pair of B&W Nautilus 800's with a $300.00 Sony receiver it would sound like utter crap.

    Going crazy-Panasonic sa xr45 or HK avr330?

    I'm not a John Kerry all I was saying is that HK are noted for being one of the best no fill receiver manufacturers because of there amps. HK have been a world leader in build amps for along time and up untill I read this thread I have never heard of Panosoinc being noted for makeing anything...

    Hmm a Panisonic that Sounds Better than Harman Kardon ? I haven't heard the Panisonic (I refer to Panny for my watch a Panerai)so I can't comment just sounds fishy to say the least.

    Help: I think my receiver sucks:

    This is just plain wrong. Try to power Paradigm Signature S8's with a $300.00 Sony receiver and it will sound horrible to say the least. Your sound starts in the Amps and that's where you need to start to get good sound. A friend and I did a direct comparison between a cheap $300.00...

    Musical speakers?

    My Paradigm Monitor's do Jazz and Rock very well but Classical and Contemporary Orchestral ie LOTR are lacking a little but nothing I can't live with.
