Coming from the highly regarded Harman Kardon avr 330 and needed hdmi support as well as Dolby digital plus for my Roku. I adore the powerful sound of my 330 and was concerned i would have to lose that classic h/k sound.

The 1700 still has that h/k sound... Its sound is colourful, weighted and powerful! The imaging and detail with music in 2 ch stereo is exceptional and is better than my 330. Movies in 5.1 is impressive as well. Ezset eq did a great job setting my speakers. I never liked my sub all that much but the avr1700 automatically eq'ed my sub and it'sa much tighter sound.

I love the simplicity of this avr. Its a huge value because your not paying for all the nonsense frills you pay for in other avrs. Its a powerful amp with all the audio decoders you need. Video and 3d is passed through so your tv can handle the processing.

Pros:
Excellent sound quality!!! Warm and detailed sound
Power
All the modern hi-rez audio decoders
HDMI works great (arc, 3d pass through, etc...)
EZset/Eq - Eq's all your speakers including the sub based on your room's acoustics.
Absolute silent operation...starts up immediatley with zero sound
It's light
GUI is excellent - a simple to use menu overlays your screen
Price!
Plain 2 channel stereo imaging and detail is exceptional
Logic 7! Don't think I could ever give that up
Networking / air...although I use my connected squeezebox instead

Cons:
Your wife will now expect you to pay very little for your audio equipment.

$346 here is a great value. Best buy has been going back and forth between $299 an even $199... which is the best bang for the buck receiver you'll find! I would have been happy if I paid $599 full retail for the sound and reliability alone.

I am (well, I was until I purchased this AVR) a fan of Harman Kardon gear. This was my third one. It was supposed to replace an old but faithful HK AVR 235. The old one did not have any HDMI inputs or latest decoders. Otherwise I wouldn't have upgraded to AVR 1700.
I purchased it from a brick and mortar store. First feeling after unboxing the receiver is that it is too light. But I have heard that HK is moving towards green hardware, hence the lightness. I thought "well, if it sounds as well as the old AVR 235, this light weight is only a plus". Still, looking at the new AVR left me with an impression that it was some cheap imitation, not the real thing. It looked like an in-store fake i-phone or Bluray player. You know what I am talking about: the empty look-alike shells that stores put on the shelves for loss prevention. The amount I paid for the AVR 1700 told me otherwise - the price was right there on the receipt!
The remote control left me puzzled. No backlighting? It looked like a replica of a replica of my old AVR remote. The AVR back connections look ridiculously simple, almost bare. But after a closer look you notice that everything you would need in a base model AVR is there, except for one or two composite inputs, may be. Some source gear doesn't have HDMI outputs, but still has composite ones. One might argue that composite outputs are obsolete, but the AVR 1700 has analog video plugs, which are even older. But still, this is not a major loss. There are enough HDMI inputs here for a modest home theater installation.
After connecting it I decided to calibrate it. The AVR did an excellent job configuring itself. I connected my XBOX360 and an HD DVR.
The movies and TV broadcasts are fine, except for one very annoying feature.

Verified Purchase
First of all I apologize for the lengthy review, but since some people really use reviews as input to their analysis on whether or not to purchase specific item, I decided after reading my first review that I needed to adjust it for clarity concerning my particular case, and to be fair with the product manufacturer.

My general level of satisfaction is good to very pleased with the H/K AVR 1700, once its outputs were connected to my current TV Set, and my 5.1 speaker system, and the sources of media connected to its input ports is very good to great, as compared to what I was getting from my old Home Theater/Entertainment center (as you please to call it).

Let me start by describing my particular Home Entertainment Center location and setup:

Placement: An approximately 130 square ft. living area with darkly tinted panoramic windows, a couch (viewing and listening position) a couple of side tables where the surround left and right Speakers sit. 6,5 feet across from all those there is a set of floor to ceiling wooden bookshelf where the rest of the 5.1 speakers sit on their respective positions. Also that is the place for the AVR, a BD/DVD player, a CD player and my SD (Standard Digital) DirecTV Satellite TV box. All those are connected as part of the Home Entertainment System.
