Not sure if you have or ever owned a HK. In my opinion, they get somewhat of a bad rap. I bought the 1700 last night. I did email HK and ask for a timeframe for the 2700/3700. I recently got rid of my AVR 354 and it seems like it was the most hated receiver in the AVS forums. Not sure if some people got faulty units (which every brand has) or if I got one of the few good units. I used the receiver for 4 years with minimal issues. My receiver prior to that was the AVR 330. I was skeptical about buying the unit, being used to the 300 series, I know they were usually pretty powerful. I know the rating of 100wpc may be a stretch, but I figure it will at least be more than the 75wpc the 354 was rated at. I'm interested to see what this receiver will do with my setup. If it doesn't perform, i will take it back and wait on the 2700. BTW I bought this right before pulling the trigger on the Pioneer SC 1222k. I was actually gonna buy that one, one day this week, but saw the Best Buy ad for this. Long story short, if you have never tried HK, give it a shot. The sound on my previous 2 was amazing. Since there is limited info on this machine, even on Youtube, I will try to make a video to inform other potential owners.
