Rated 2 out of 5 by DLHDragon from the HK 3770 runs hotter than HK 3490 i have had both HK 3770 (120watt per channel) and HK 3490 (120watt per channel) the HK 3770 runs hotter than HK 3490 at -45dB , -40dB and -35dB volume level (at same volume) ( this will make it LESS Durable ) ----------------------------------------------------------- ( HK 3770 ) more Heat = LESS Durable also the HK 3770 uses to much remote control i miss some of the source buttons on the HK 3770 (on the front) , like the HK 3490 had ---------------------------------------------------------- HK 3770 and HK 3490 sound the same on analog audio inputs , but sound Different on digital audio inputs

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tungi from Great clean sound. I've had this unit for four months now and it's fantastic! I'm running JBL ES80 floor speakers and an Onkyo 10" subwoofer. I primarily use it running my PS4/PS3 and cable, but also use it for music. The DLNA features are great on this unit as well. I'm not an extreme audiophile, but I do appreciate good quality sound and this setup definitely delivers that and much more (Harmon Low/High sound). The only few things I wish this unit had are: Bass/Treble controls on the unit (currently accessible via remote only), wireless (currently only hardwire connection available), and an easier access to accessing your music via Network (currently it's very tedious to go thru a lot of music with no search feature). All in all, I'm pleased with the unit which I use everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Showman1 from Class A/B amplifier? check! This beast has 40 amps of current to provide to speakers and I tested this with 6 ohm speakers it is 50 % efficient which is typically for a class A/B the previous model it was a wonder of 310 w with 77% efficiency, guess Harman is learning to do proper SMPS, good clean sound in evry in, including the coveted optical coaxial digital inputs for lossless audio, high quality performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joel from Beautiful, full-featured stereo receiver I have a set of JBL tower speakers, and I previously had them connected to an Onkyo TX-8255, and they sounded great. Now that I have them connected to the 3770, I honestly think I hear a big enough difference in quality to justify the upgrade — even without the killer features; Bluetooth is definitely a nice touch for sure, and very convenient — I have my music collection playing wirelessly from my phone all the time, and so long as you stay within range, it sounds great. Five auxiliary connection ports for RCA cables as well; I have one cable with a 3.5mm end for connecting to MP3 players or whatever I like, and I’ve one more connected to my TV; three more ports left, and I’m not sure what I’ll ever use ‘em for. I can’t tell you too much about the technicalities of this receiver’s connectivity, but you can read all about that sort of thing on this website, or in the product manual. This stereo receiver packs 120 watts of power into two channels each (240 watts total), at 8 ohms, with .07% total harmonic distortion. This receiver is fantastic. If you don’t believe me, then by all means order one for yourself. Harman Kardon ships for free and charges no tax (at least in Illinois), and offers free 30-day returns and lifetime support. Go for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by arch1 from Powerful and clean stereo receiver I have had this receiver for a couple of weeks now and it has proven to be a clean and powerful receiver. I was initially surprised at the light weight of the unit however it must utilize newer technology as the weight does not reflect the performance. Connected readily to my four year old Ipod as well as my new IPhone 5. Still exploring other aspects of connectivity as I am interested in high resolution music files. Instructions are sketchy with limited assistance to connectivity or other control or performance capabilities.

Can I hook up an equalizer like comes with Bose 901 speakers?
No. The HK 3770 does not have a Tape Loop or Preamp Out/Main Amp In sections, which is what your Bose 901 speaker system needs in order to function properly.

I plan to buy HKTS16 speakers along with this amplifier (HK3770). I see the rated input for these speakers is 200W RMS, while the output for this receiver is 240W RMS? Do you think this is ok combination of speakers or do you have any other recommendation
The HKTS 16 is a 5.1 speaker system that can handle up to 120 watts per channel while the HK3770 is a 2.1 stereo receiver which has a power output of 120 watts per channel, so this should work perfectly. The HK 3770, though, is a stereo receiver and will only let you plug in up to two pairs of your satellites and the subwoofer. This will not provide you 5.1 surround sound. We suggest that you use one of our current AVRs, for example, the AVR 1610S; which will allow you to use all the speakers included in the HKTS 16 and enable you to set-up a 5.1 surround system.

Would the HKTS 20 surround system work with this receiver?
The HK 3770 is a stereo-receiver which will only make use of two of the satellites and the subwoofer from the HKTS 20 set. We do not recommend the HK 3770 with the HKTS 20, though. The receiver delivers up to 120W of power while the HKTS 20 speaker can only handle to 80W.

Is there balance control between speakers?
We have released a software update on the HK3770 that adds the balance control feature that you can access using the Tone Control button on your remote. Depending on when your unit was manufactured, it may have already had the latest software installed at the factory. To see if your HK 3770 software requires an upgrade, please follow these steps: 1. Press the “FM/AM” button on the remote to switch ON the stereo receiver. 2. Press the “Menu” button on the remote. The front display will show: Master menu, Network 3. Press the “down” navigation button on the remote. The front display show: Master menu, Software upgrade 4. Press the “OK” navigation button on the remote. The front display show: Upgrade menu, Version: V000.17 5. If the software version shown is “V000.17”, your stereo receiver has the latest software version already, and no further action is needed. Press the “Exit” button on the remote two times to cancel and exit the menu. 6. If the display shows any other readout, please proceed to the link provided below and download the software update for your HK 3770. This will include a PDF file with detailed instructions on how to proceed with the update.

Can I use the HKTS200 speakers for this system- also I would like to connect a CD player-can I do that too? What CD player would you recommend
Yes you can use the HKTS 200 2.1 speaker system as the HK3770 is a 2.1 stereo receiver. However, you might want to limit the volume output on the receiver a little bit as the HK3770 has a rated output of 240W RMS and the satellites of the HKTS 200 has a rated input of 200W RMS. With that said, I would highly suggest that you either choose another speaker system to use with the receiver which has a higher rated input(i.e 250W RMS) or a receiver which has a lower rated output(i.e 200W and below). Any CD player would work with the receiver as long as it is compatible with the ports on the receiver(i.e Optical, RCA, Etc...).

Hi, is this amp 4 ohm stable?
Unlike our AVR’s, our HK stereo receivers can handle 4 ohm speakers. How can you tell? If you take a look at the manual, at the rear panel, you will see that you can connect two sets of speakers, both rated at 8 ohms, and page 8 states that you can listen to both sets at the same time. So, if you connect two 8 ohm speakers at the same time, in parallel, the amplifier will see a 4 ohm load.
