re: HK395i

Excellent, clean warm sound. The rated 30 Watts are more than enough to pump deep, sharp, floor-shaking bass notes through high quality, high efficiency speakers. Loving it. The FM tuner is a good analog one. Haven't compared it to the ones at the top. It still pulls in more stations than most of the digital tuners I've used. The number of inputs is limited, but a Chromecast audio streaming bob makes up for the lack of digital inputs. The brushed metal, now vintage, aesthetic and square led indicators are very cool.

Edit: I did not meant to imply that the sound was bass heavy, but that it could handle low notes with authority. The sound is clear across the spectrum and the clarity of the human voice in songs is impressive.

Whoops! I meant to add this to the HK385i receiver. I have read on another forum that other than the digital tuner, the HK395i is identical to the HK385i. So my comments on sound quality may still be true. Please ignore the comment about the tuner.
