Ratings: Harman/Kardon AVR 340 a/v Receiver

Build Quality: 93
• Exudes solidity and grace without a trace of cheesiness
• Gray-and-black look continues company's train of thought

Value: 89
• Auto features no longer unique, but don't take them for granted
• Optional Bridge iPod accessory

Features: 95
• Auto setup and room EQ are huge pluses
• iPod-compatible Bridge makes system more useful

Performance: 89
• Harman/Kardon's power specs are less fictional than most
• There is plenty of headroom for this choice of speakers

Ergonomics: 94
• Boxy, like a traditional receiver, but handsome
• Several ways to navigate Bridge

Overall Rating: 91
The Harman/Kardon AVR 340 is conventional and reliable beneath the hood, but the institutional two-tone color scheme makes it a near art object. Add the iPod-accommodating Bridge to auto setup and room equalization, and you're still under $1,000—a highly desirable package.
