    I was an absolute lover of Harman/Kardon receivers (had an AVR65rds, mmmmmmm!!!!) until I purchased an AVR7000 last October. Unless they have sorted out the DTS chip they are using I wouldn't touch them with a very large barge-pole. The sound level, especially the LFE was very very disappointing - even when the sub output was turned to +10db there was absolutely no sound (in DD5.1 the bass was massive at a level of 0db). I eventually auditioned 2 receivers, both with the same problem. I was deeply upset as the every other sound format was precise and powerful.

    So if you are a fan of DTS, please stay away.

    I am now the proud owner of a Pioneer VSA-E08. Nice!!
