A fantastic successor to the AVR-X3700H
The AVR-X3700H was a great receiver, but it had the unfortunate limitation of only one HDMI 2.1 input. This receiver fixes that and has a much improved UX.

Great sound, great tech overall, and easy to set up and use. Highly recommended.

Refurbished but works like new - at first it's crap until you dial it in for cinema and music
I like the unit , but wish I would have called and talked with a rep at world wide stereo. I would have told them the set up that I have and what I was looking for - just to see what unit they would have told me to get .

The X3600H is nice - it's made for listening to movies (my opinion) - as soon as you connect everything, do the microphone sound check - go right to Disney plus - turn on a Marvel movie - ?? WOW - the crisp sound , atmos - surround, IMAX - is amazing -
I have 4 towers ,front Atmos , 4 - 12" powered subs and center channel .

Then you go to the radio - and it sounds like crap - you have to dive into the settings , equalizer, speakers and adjust them to make the music sound good , not great but good .
HEOS is worthless (my opinion) I use "Live X Live" , Spotify or Pandora.
It take a little to figure out the Bluetooth and connecting to the IPhone - Air Play .
I have Bluetooth speakers and 10"sub in the dinning room and kitchen area - I play darts ?? in there and like to cook with music .
The Bluetooth connects immediately to the speakers but the connecting to the AirPlay is sometimes tricky - I'm still trying to nail down exactly what to do .
I also had to sync my speakers in the theatre room and the dinning room /kitchen so voices and music hit at the same time in each room .
It would be nice to have a hard copy of the manual instead of trying to read it on my phone .
Downloading the remote on your phone and using the on screen setup , together help you tweak the sound - you do have to use the colored buttons at the bottom of the remote to change the sound modes .
I don't Game or watch DVD's - mainly watch Netflix, HBOmax , Paramount plus and Disney plus and listen to music .
I have Xfinity cable and the sound quality for most channels are crap .
Overall - I'm not sure if this was the correct choice for me but my settings and the sound does make me smile .
The unit is only as good as the signal it receives - EX. All radio stations come in only as analog- have not found digital yet - and I have an expensive antenna up in my attics .

Some things up - don't be shy - call and talk to a rep at World Wide Stereo and let them help you make the best decision for your set up - I wish that I did .
