    Lightbulb Finalizing my stereo receiver purchase for my two JBL E80's: HK3700?

    so...after a lot of thought and opinions, I wanted to finally upgrade my stereo for my towers to the HK3390, but have found out they are no longer being made. How are the HK3700??

    That HK should be fine. Also consider the HK 7700 that is the equivalent of the discontinued HK3490.

    The only drawback that I see with the new receivers are that they no longer have a preamp out.
