Summary: Everything is great about this high current receiver. I continue to buy HK 3 series receivers because i love the look, setup, and sound i get out of them. I've had the avr-330, then the avr-354, and now the avr-3650, and they keep getting more powerful. I sell my old ones to family members and they love them too! The only draw back is they are not making the new HKs with the multi-channel inputs.
Summary: I thought I reviewed this one before? It works great and is exactly what I wanted. Only problem/question is that Amazon/seller said it was 'new'. It wasn't. The box had been opened and then sealed back up. It was a very nice job and I don't see any wear. But it seems this was probably used by the seller to provide a review of the product. After the review, I suspect the seller just packages it back up and sells it. Wouldn't this be 'like new', not new?
Summary: I actually rate this receiver as 4.5 stars. As a previous owner of the AVR 3600 I was skeptical that this unit would be worthy of owning. I received it as a replacement from HK after having 2 of the 3600's that had serious issues. On the negative side this unit has very few analog inputs and outputs, but that is a sign of the times.
Summary: Bought this because my 8 month old Onkyo lost its mind (turned itself on/off, no longer responded to any commands). It's been two months and it's still not repaired so I made a good move replacing it. Love they way this HK looks. Have had HK and JBL in the past and they stand behind their products. Only concern is that it has gone into Protect mode when played at high volumes for extended periods. Runs very hot. I have installed a fan in the cabinet.
