    HI, am looking for a new AV Receiver and I got it down to a choice between 2 (thanks to the help of the forums). I am torn between the Harman Kardon AVR 347 (which is my preferred choice) or the Onkyo 705.

    Both are about £600 online.
    Both have multiroom options (something I want)
    Both have HDMI and Component switching (essential)

    Can anybody else help out with any differences between the 2?
    I prefer the look of the HK, but function is more important then look for me. The Onkyo has 3 HDMI inputs, HK only has 2. I have also read of lip syncing issue with the Onkyo which sways me back to the HK.

    Any help or advice would be great!

    Yes I do know about the AVR 350, but as far as I can tell it is the same specs as the AVR 347, and I think the 347 looks a lot nicer. I don't like the look of the 350. What do people think of the Harman Kardon's?

    Harmans are very musical compared to Onkyos.
