Summary: Very impressed with the performance of the HK 3770. I think the sound is very clear and true with no noise. Not even close to breaking a sweat. A little disappointed with how it handles music on USB thumb drives. It does not advance to the next folder when the last song of the current completes.
Pros: Great sound. No noise. Simple set up and use
Cons: Doesn't continue to the next folder when the last song completes in the current.
Summary: This receiver is amazing. Everything works great. The power to my Polk Audio speakers is amazing. The best part about this is the network radio stations and bluetooth. Once I hooked up my network cable I could listen stations around the world. There a lot of good genre stations to listen to.
Summary: Broke after 8 months intermittent use. Lousy quality when compared to my former Harmon Kardon AVI 200 II. AM/FM tuner section not as good as a SONY unit at 1/3 the cost when operating on the same antenna.
Excerpt: It was difficult to track down a 2.1 channel receiver with over 100 watts per channel to drive Klipsch Reference bookshelves and sub. Unlike others I didn't want a surround sound setup, just very good stereo sound, so purchasing a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver would be overkill for my needs.
Summary: I looked for a replacement for an old Kenwood Amp and tuner. Was amazed at how little is available for a basic Stereo system, that can handle inputs for phono, tape decks etc... This is the perfect match for "old Tech" and new with the option for Bluetooth, Network and Input for phone or Ipod.
Pros: Light weight, assume circuitry has changed drastically from the old heat sinks etc... Remote covers about everything. Just got it, so still learning.
Cons: Full operators manual had to be downloaded from HK. Manual that comes with unit is very brief, does not cover remote too well. Only con so far.
Summary: Its been 25 years since I've purchased a preamp/amp set or receiver in this case - things have changed a great deal. This receiver has all the latest tech incorporated in it, and the sound matches the tech level - outstanding.
Pros: Outstanding features, up to speed with related products (smart TV's, DVD/CD players) Plenty of power High quality appearance
Cons: Only compatible with Apple products - would like to see Anroid compatibility too No wireless option for connectivity / networking
