When you've devoted time to building a music collection, versatility is key. The TEAC AG-H380 compact receiver easily connects to your CD player, turntable, tape deck, and more. And with TEAC's solid reputation for great build and sound quality, you can expect years of enjoyment.
Great digital playback...
Connect your iPod® to the 'H380's USB port for direct digital playback. The signal bypasses the iPod's made-for-earbuds audio circuitry in favor of TEAC's hi-fi processor for a difference you can hear. The 'H380 also provides control of the iPod using the included remote. And the song or file information from your player or thumb drive appears on the 'H380 display.
...and great digital recording
Here's a very cool feature. You can record directly onto a USB thumb drive from your turntable, CD player, radio or other source. You can even set the internal timer to record programs from the radio for later listening. All recording is done in the MP3 format so you will fit hours and hours of your favorites on a single drive.
What we heard
A demo of the 'H380 in our acoustically challenging training room proved this receiver to be an accomplished performer. We found its handling of digital music files to be polished and sharp, whether from a thumb drive or iPod®. The amplifier worked impressively with a pair of PSB Image B5 speakers. We were particularly delighted with the level of bass control that gave us a great listening experience with or without a sub attached.
From the review TEAC AG-H380 and PSB Image B5 speakers — small system, big sound
"In the short time that I had the TEAC AG-H380 system at home, my family and I came to truly love having it in the living room. Its small size, unobtrusive good looks, and surprising sound quality won my wife over immediately. While I have no doubt that the AG-H380 could play well with other small, reasonably efficient speakers (and I know that the B5s sound fantastic with other receivers), the combination of these two together achieves such a synergy, that it almost seems as if they were made to go together."
