So does the EZset1 correct the two sub-channels independently?

Harman Kardon HKTS 220 subwoofers all have trigger Inputs, however I would not need to uses them if the wireless transmitters were not so crap, that it blocks and interferes with wireless routers.....

Yes to does check the subs independently, it gives you the option to select, 5.1, 5.2, 7.1 or 7.2

Perhaps in North America , they are behind the times, lets face it, they still use NTSC :-)

We have pretty much every channel in 720/1080 here (let's forget how good they are) - do you think Pay A Lot is better? wink.gif

Actually the fact you have 720 or 1080 is not the issue, it's the colour or should I say in American Color is not as consistent, NTSC stands for never the same colour :-)

Pal is a lot better, I notice this considerabley when I play US imports on my blu ray.

I mean the fact Americans can't spell the word Colour :-) shows how behind they are, I mean it was us the British that invented the language he he They even call their mother Mom instead of Mum :-)

I have had further problems with the AVR 3700/370, it seems to freeze after a while in standby mode, you can not turn it on, you have to turn the switch off at the back and turn it back on again. Then you can use the remote or standby button on the AVR itself, I am going to ask for a replacement.....

Your understanding of NTSC is lacking. We don't use NTSC anymore. We use ATSC for over the air broadcasts. Blurays are mostly 1920x1080p24. This is not NTSC. Most movies are mastered to 4K from film and then exported to Bluray. Many newer movies that are filmed in digital to begin with are exported to 1080p for bluray. There is no NTSC here!

That is right. NTSC is gone, gone, gone. Never again will we have to put up with the odd colour presentations of different makes and models of TVs. Oh and I spelled colour with ou on purpose. I am American, but agree that it needs to be spelled the British way.
I mean, just pronounce the word, there is a OU before the end of word R. Still though I have a trunk on my car and not a boot. Language is so fun on both sides of the pond.

Alan in Boise

103 inch AT screen with 9.x playback. IB sub woofer system. Two manifolds with 2 15s and 2 12s. Line array with 2 15s. Running main channels with Minimus 7s. Have front wide and front hight and rear surrounds. Room is perfect size for smaller speakers like the Minimus speakers. Approx. 17x13x8. Tower speakers were taking up to much room.

That is so true. It's so pleasant to hear from a person, who has a sense of Humour, realises, (notice no Z in realise ha ha) I am not being offensive, but just having a sense of humour. When I lived in the US I did enjoy it, and people were generally nice, except NY, they are far to uptight.

You also pay a lot less for electronics than us :-) have better weather and a better selection of movies on DVD and Blu ray.

So Apart from the fact of having NTSC, you have a lot more pluses than having PAL, perhaps I am talking Rubbish, sorry Trash, ha ha :-)

So thank you for the great reply

Musicman :-)

Take a look at Denon 3313ci. Seems to have same functionality and specs as HK 3700 but with 3 zone play. About the same price as well. Curious if anyone has compared or seen a comparison of the Denon 3313ci and the HK 3700?

I'm thinking of getting a HK 2700. How would this compare to a pioneer vsx-1120?
Also how would it compare to a Denon AVR-2313?

Thank you for the response. It's exactly what I wanted to hear. I am looking to replace my pioneer. How good is the ez set/eq?

I've been thinking about purchasing either the Harmon Kardon AVR 2700 or the Denon AVR 2313. I have a room which is not very acoutically sound. Tiled floors, TV is off to one end of the room with drapes covering French doors, and the opposite side of the room open. Would the Harman receiver dound good in this room or would the denon be better with the audyssey multi eq xt? I'm guessing these would both be a step up from a pioneer vsx-1120?

I have my mind set on the HK 2700. How is the reliability of harman's av receivers?

my 3600 started to go, bbuy couldn't fix it within their 60 day period or watever, and they 'replaced' it with the 3650 (which I returned) and then they 'replaced' it with the 2700. The 2700 feels about as heavy as my $50 dvd player i bought years ago. It dropped out video constantly and sounded terrible. no bottom end and you need to listen to it almost full volume to get decent imaging. Returned the h/k and settled with an onkyo. Much better build unit, way more sound mode capability and sounds comparable to the 3600. Hope that helps.

I just bit the bullet and purchased a HK-2700. So much better than the pioneer vsx-1120, bass is alot tighter and fuller. The surround sounds alot better. There is no comparing the HK to the pio. I love my Harman. The ez set/eq got the distances spot on, only had to lower the centre channel level by 2db and raise the satellites by 1db. Plus it set my satellites as large (pioneer did the same). Changed the crossover setting for the 4 jbl 530's to 60Hz and the 520C centre channel to 80Hz with the sub at 80HZ or 60Hz low pass. Still deciding on the best LPF. The studio 5 loudspeakers with the Harman 2700 is a match made in heaven. The Dolby volume is also a nice addition. I had a yamaha rx-v 663 when I first got into home theatre with klipsch speakers. After a while hurt my ears. Loud but didn't like. I sold the yamaha and bought the pioneer. Was alot better, but still found the sound a little bright at higher volumes. The pio was nice for movies, wasn't nice for watching TV. Was alot better when I swapped the klipsch's for the jbl studio 5 series speakers., the sealed subwoofer (550p) is a gem. Heavy 50lb sub and sealed. I am finally happy, couldn't be happier. Would have to spend thousands more to get a better system. Not worth it. I am very happy. I live in a condo, the clarity at low volumes is what I love about the JBL's. With time the JBL studio 5's loosen up and sound even better. Have horn tweeters, but are not bright sounding like klipschs. Clarity at low volumes and loud when tuned up, but don't hurt my ears.
With Harman you pay for the high current amplification, not all of the licensed gimmicks which try to improve the sound. Music, movies, tv all sound spectacular. Harman has a customer for life. I do agree that TV with the dolby volume switched off doesn't sound as good but with it on the sound is to my liking. I wouldn't buy the HK 1700, amp section seems weak.
Forgot to mention: I also love the vtuner internet radio.
