I bought a 3700 six months ago as my Onkyo 876 had the hdmi switch fail. I knew it would not have enough power to push my Polk RTI 10's the way my onkyo did and was pretty nervous when I unboxed it and it weighed next to nothing. I bought it more as a future processor and finally bought an Emotiva XPA-5 to perform the heavy lifting. Now that I have 200W of real power per channel I bought a pair of Rti A9's as fronts and use the Rti 10's as surrounds and moved my Rti 4's as the 6th and 7th channel fed by the 3700. The Onkyo now drives 4 bass transducers bolted to the couches fed from the 3700's sub 2 output into an auxiliary input on the Onkyo. This works great because I can adjust the bass transducers output with the Onkyo volume. The Polk speaker setup gives me a total of 10 7" woofers and I have a 15" Premier Acoustic sub digging down low. Needless to say this setup is great for home theater and Godzilla took advantage of all the power feeding my system. At full volume there is zero distortion with the fronts and surrounds set to large. My theater is in a 900 square foot SPACE and I can use all of my volume if I want to. I do wish there was a bit more eq choices in the 3700 but overall am floored by the set up. Any other upgrades will just be out of boredom. I would like an SVS PB 13 eventually but really don't need it.

Problem solved. Had to power down AVR, insert USB and then Power back on. Update worked like a charm!


BTW...as instructed you do have to unzip directly to the USB root drive.

I've ad my 3700 a year now and have no complaints, haven't seen many posts in this thread which makes me assume they have been very reliable, as everyone posts negative comments in these forums.


Anyone else have some problems or pro's and con's about the 3700? Solid AVR for me so far.


I have no complaints with the power or sound quality. I was worried when it came out of box and was half the weight of my old 354 but more wpc.


My airplay is cuts in and out but I really don't use it, just messed with it.

No flagship AVRs from Harman again this year at CES huh?

Looks like it will be Yamaha from now on...

Is there a reason the 3700 isn't right for you? Have you had one?


I have stuck with HK because the 354 blew away my old Yamaha(Old-2000ish) and pioneer, so I ran with HK this round again.


I have seen Yamaha is supposed to be very reliable. But it's been a year since my last post and almost nothing posted for problems

Yeah, with all due respect, the 3700 is not a flagship AVR...

The last flagship AVR Harman made was the 7550 - years ago...

I am a long time Harman and Infinity lover - but Harman has let both brands just die in the last years.... sadly...

Yamaha seems to be the best bet now - especially since Pioneer has been sold to Onkyo...

I heavily considered a used 7550 before my 3700, just couldn't drop 600-1k on a used AVR that going into the current time was lacking. Did you have one? A few have said the 3700 isn't too far off. Where in Wisco are you from, I spent 25 years in Lacrosse?


Have you had a HK amp? I'm looking for an old signature 2.1 to plug into my system to see if it makes any difference?

Any other ideas?

Hello Fellow HKers!

I have an "older" model HK flagship AVR - the 7200 (and a 7550HD)... that are in their boxes in the storage closet...

Can the 7200 be used as an effective amp with a newer 2015 AVR?

Yes...
The 7200 can be used as a 7 channel power amplifier, with an AVR that has a 7 channel Pre-Outs..
Plug into the 7 Channel Direct inputs, set the 7200 volume control @ 0dB...
Will work great the 7200 had an incredible high current amplifier circuit.

Just my $0.02...

Thanks!

And it won't alter the sound at all, etc...?

It will basically just work as a "pass-through"?

In other words, I will be able to get HDMI sound through the direct inputs?

Great....

So, if I purchase the 3700 I can connect the outputs to the 7200's inputs... and get more/better sound...?

And I will be able to use all of the 3700's specs, sound processing, etc... without the 7200 interfering with anything?

When my AVR 3700 goes into logic 7 surround mode on what I am assuming is a non DD show on TV, and the AVR is trying to make it sound like DD I can hear an echo like digital distortion in the FL speaker. When I switch the same show to 2 or 5 channel stereo the hiss goes away and it is clear out of the FL. Also clear on DD sources. Does anyone else have this happen, and is there a fix. I have my settings to AVR selects best available, which I want it to do. From what I can figure out, when I get a station that puts the avr into logic 7, I would have to go into surround modes, manually switch it to 5 channel stereo, and then when I switch to a DD show switch back to Best available(DD)

Hi guys, I'm thinking about upgrading my avr3600 to a avr2700. Would the step down be a noticeable sound quality difference or actually be an upgrade? I love the idea of networking and Bluetooth let's get my place modernized.

I own a 2600 and a 3700, I don't use my airplay, it is really choppy for some reason and haven't bothered to look into it. I just plug my Ipod into the usb, the control on that is much better and quicker than say the bridge. The Iphone app as remote control is cool, but it's easier to grab the remote than pop up the app. If you are looking for a new toy, go ahead and get it. Or wait a little bit and see if HK is coming out with a new line sometime in the near future.

Hmmm that's interesting....not what I expected to hear. I figured HK would have had the bugs worked out by now.

I have had my AVR-2700 since April of last year. All has worked well except that the unit every few days would not wake up. This would require a hard power cycle (pulling the plug until caps drain and then plugging back in). VERY frustrating issue that may have been covered here but could not find details on it other than an occasional mention.

Fast forward to this last weekend, finally updated to the 6.18 firmware that has been out quite a while now and despite the single bug fix mention in the change log, it has resolved a lot more

- Power down and power up are much quicker
- Unit goes into sleep quickly vs being a struggle previously as I would have to hold the remote button down for a bit instead of a quick press
- Menu seems much snappier and I could be mistaken but GUI layout seems a bit different - however I have not used the old in some time so could be bad memory on my part
- Best part of all this whole week I have not had to hard power cycle the unit. It wakes up every time as it should (fingers crossed) Will report back if it fails to power up again.

It is the ARC from the TV. Disconnect and it will work fine, sucks but that is the answer.

Hi,

I have an avr 3700
Has someone upgraded the firmware of this model?
Was allright?

My hdmi out 1 apparently is not working. No signal.
Hdmi out 2 it's still ok.
I don't think upgrade firmware will solve this, but....

I have already reseted the unit, and the problem is still there.

Turn off the ARC on the TV, that fixes it, but that solution sucks

How similar are these to the 3600's in sq? I've heard a denon x1100, Yamaha a740, marantz 5009 and really wasn't that impressed by those. I would say if anything they were equal ish...

I have a 2600 and the 3700, I was skeptical when the 3700 came out of the box at half the weight, but the features are great and sq in my opinion is better overall in the 3700. I have had an AVR354, 2600, and now 3700. I liked the sound of the 3700 and 354 over the 2600, not sure why.

I just upgraded mine yesterday. All the upgrade mentions for a fix is the LFE trim adjustment with remote under audio options. I highly doubt it would fix your issue, but might as well do the upgrade.

Can anyone provide the update for the avr2700? It isn't working on Harman website and apparently they outsource now and have been telling me to check in an hour for the last 5 days after 7 calls. How big is the file and if anyone can share that would be awesome
