Hi everyone, I am hoping someone can help me out. Apart from the slight wattage difference between the harman kardon avr330 and the avr430, I couldnt find any difference between the two. It seems like both have multi room audio capability either through the 2 channels not used (if using 5.1 mode instead of 7.1mode) or you can use the A/B option as well. There is an RS232 port on the avr430, which I am not sure the use for. Which one of the two would you recommend and why? there is about $100 difference in the price of the two models.
The AVR430 is a clear winner here. I once analyzed those two models and came out with a 30 spot list of differences between the two. Look at the specs and especially the weight of the units, the 430 is much beefier and shares the design with AVR630, while the 330 has same costruction as 130, 230.
