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."

Product Research



Tuner: The AM/FM tuner can store up to 30 AM and 30 FM presets.

iPod Compatibility: The AG-H380 is Made for iPod compliant; using a USB to iPod Dock cable plugged into the rear panel USB port, music can be played directly from an iPod, bypassing the iPod's D/A converter. The iPod is controlled by the receiver and elapsed time or text (song, artist, album) appears on the display. A direct mode can also be engaged to use the controls and display on the iPod. iPod compatibility is as follows (as of October 2010):

Note: Apple iPod software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the device and your iPod to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.

MP3/WMA: Instead of an iPod, a USB memory device containing MP3 or WMA files can by connected to the rear panel USB port. Compatible devices include USB flash drives, MP3 players (no specific compatibility information available), and USB hard drives (formatted Fat 16 or Fat 32 only, not NTFS). Like an iPod, the USB device is controlled by the receiver and text information or elapsed time appears on the display. The USB input is compatible with MP3 files up to 320 kbps and WMA files up to 192 kbps and will recognize up to 2,000 files on the drive.

USB Recording: Audio can be recorded on a connected USB device from the tuner or a source component connected to the Aux, CD, or Phono input.

Record Out: The Aux 1 input has a corresponding output (stereo RCA) for connecting a recording component; cassette deck, CD recorder, etc.

Sleep Timer: The sleep timer turns the unit off after a delay of 10 to 90 minutes (adjustable in 10 minute increments).

Timer: The AG-H380 has a built-in clock and daily timer, so it can be used as an alarm clock. The timer can also be used to record to a connected USB memory device.

Dimmer: The display has three brightness settings; Bright, Dim, and Off.
