Summary: I originally bought an HK 3490 and was very happy with it until it suddenly died. When I contacted customer service, they said they had sold their last 3490s but could send me the new version instead. Naturally, I said that would be more than adequate. In this case, the new model is a huge step back. Despite claiming the same power (120 wpc), it's not nearly as strong. Setting this to -15 dB gets the same volume as -35 on the 3490.
Summary: Purchased the new receiver and it functions well with the high level of connectivity I was seeking. Clean and powerful sound. Nice imaging capabilities. The product design is clean and simple; suitable for use. Yes the remote control is plastic similar to 99% of all remote controls. Kept the unit.
Summary: I have this receiver paired with two infinity primus floor standing speakers and an infinity primus sub. I was primarily interested in a system for music so the 2.1 setup works for me. I am still amazed at the clarity and detail this amp reproduces even at high volumes. Plenty of options for inputs is nice, though I mostly use one Aux in from my computer. Bluetooth is a plus though and works very very easily.
Summary: I have been enjoying this receiver about a week now. I am not completely tech savvy when it comes to things like networking a million devices but I can say that as far a bluetooth is concerned and and the basics of an old time analog receiver, I am very happy. I only have bluetooth devices and a couple hundred LPs which is what I use most. LPs sound great on this system. I don't have CDs but I am sure they would sound great too.
Pros: Pros are the massive versitility and new technology while getting away from the surround sound thing and getting back to the basics of a STEREO two channel high powered receiver. For me a phono input is always one of the essenital requirements. I cannot imagine this unit being a dissapointment to anyone.
Cons: In regards to the cons of this unit, it is heavily dependant on the remote control. There is precious little you can do without the remote in fact. That includes adjusting bass, treble,and even balance, not to mention all the higher technologies that cannot be adjusted without the remote control. So, if you buy this unit, you will need to treat the remote with a lot of care as you are going to need it to work throughout the lifetime of the receiver.
Summary: I grew up with 2 channel stereo's. Raw power and everything was big. Old school meets new technology. Everything from the past, but better. This HK is simple to hook up, 15 minutes maybe. Simple to use and really kicks!! This is used for outdoor sound paired with NHT's, WOW!!
Pros: Plenty of power. Simple easy, out of the box music in 15 min or less.
Summary: After getting the runaround working directly with Harman Kardon on my pre-order, the unit finally arrived. My first impression out of the box was not good. I have coffee table books that weigh more, and it has an overall cheap feel to it with a plastic front casing and plastic buttons running along it. The textured rubber volume dial is a nice touch, however, with an illuminated outer ring. The remote control is similarly slight and made of cheap plastic.
Summary: Ich dachte es kommt nicht so auf den Verstärker an aber Verzerrungsfreies hören ist wirklich was anderes. Das mit den Digital Entstufen ist ja schön das die leicht sind und wenig Strom verbrauchen aber wenn man dabei solche Kompromisse beim Klang eingehen muss dann besser wieder die alten schweren stromfresser. Der Bass war nur noch eher ein Simuliertes brummen aber kein BASS.
Summary: Nun versuche ich mich auch einmal im Schreiben eines (vorerst) kurzen Erfahrungsberichtes zu dem HK 3770. Anmerken möchte ich vorab, dass es sich lediglich um meine persönlichen Erfahrungen handelt und jeder für sich wissen muss, ob man sich dieses Gerät anschaffen möchte. Gerne hätte ich das Teil über Amazon gekauft, jedoch ist er hier kurzfristig nicht lieferbar. Also los gehts: Das Gerät ist gut verpackt.
