You'll get more "features" for the same price or less than the HK. I have the AVR 1600 and like it.
But, if I were buying today I don't think I would pay anywhere near the list price for the 2650, not when you can get the Pioneer 1121 for $600 or less, any number on Onkyos for less, Yamaha 800 series for less, Marantz, Denon etc...
If the AVR were in the $500 range it would be a good choice IMO but as it is priced I would look elsewhere.
