A friend contacted me last week and said he had two old Harman Kardon receivers that were "noisy" - did I want them? If not they were going to recycle. I can't bring myself to let that sort of thing happen, so I picked them up and dropped them off directly to my tech. A couple days later they were all done, just needed a thorough cleaning in every possible sense.

These aren't monsters by any stretch, but both are way more than enough to pair with Klipsch KG4s, even in a garage system that gets cranked from time to time. I'm not a receiver sorta guy, but I do take in strays. I'm not sure what I'll end up doing with them, but I think the 630 will be staying in the system as it sounds particularly nice with the KG4s (which can sound rather harsh). Neither is about to replace the main system, but they both sound quite good as receivers go and are attractive.
