5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic- cheapest and best for the features, January 3, 2013
This review is from: Harman Kardon AVR 1700 5.1-Channel Network-Connected Audio/Video Receiver with AirPlay (Electronics)
I had an all in one surround sound system. Crappy speakers and lots of issues. A handy friend recommend that I set myself up with a receiver so that I could upgrade pieces/parts as needed. We set out to buy a Sony unit. Once we got to best buy we saw that this one was on sale for $199! I was pretty much sold on it right away since it was so heavily discounted (usually $499 according to the label) but couldn't put it into my cart fast enough once I saw that it had airplay.

So more about the unit... In short its fantastic. I'm technically retarded and this is really straight forward. It has great features, airplay being one of them and best of all its really intuitive to use. My friend set it up, but I've had no trouble using it and switiching between inputs. I paired it with a decent subwoofer and two new speakers, reusing the center and surround speakers from the old unit. I have FANTASTIC sound, even with airplay. No more sound delay that I used to get with the old system. 5 stars for this all the way.
