Harman just announced four new 3D-ready A/V receivers featuring HDMI v.1.4a. The new models are the AVR 1565, AVR 1650, AVR 2650 and AVR 3650 all of which include Harman Kardon brand's proprietary Logic 7 sound processing, providing rich and powerful 360-degree sound.
The AVR 1565 and AVR 1650 are budget-friendly, 5.1-channel receivers systems with Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding technologies. The 1565 packs a lot of punch with 70 watts per channel, an FM/AM tuner, extensive audio/video connectivity, and three HDMI inputs. The AVR 1650 provides 95 watts of power per channel and also includes an FM stereo, The Bridge IIIP connectivity, additional HDMI input, and EzSet/EQ technology, giving movie and music buffs additional flexibility in configuring their ideal home theater setup.
For those looking to take their entertainment to the next level, the AVR 2650 and AVR 3650 can power 7.1-channel surround-sound systems and are packed with the latest and greatest next-generation technology. Both AVRs include network connectivity for Internet radio or music file streaming from a home network and are SIRIUS Satellite Radio-ready. Additional benefits include Dolby Volume — a home theater volume control, which maintains the same volume level across channels, sources, and content — and multizone functionality for audio playback in multiple rooms. The AVR 3650 goes one step further, providing 110 watts of power per channel and six HDMI inputs — versus 90 watts of power per channel and five HDMI inputs with the AVR 2650 — accommodating every entertainment whim with grace, style, and ease.
“The new line of Harman Kardon AVRs takes advantage of the latest home entertainment technologies to offer our customers the richest at-home sound and viewing experience possible, suitable for most budgets,” said David Slump, president of HARMAN Consumer Division.
These receivers feature the Harman Kardon brand's sleek black and brushed silver design, perfectly coordinating with any existing Harman Kardon products and home surroundings. Artistically designed and effortless to use, all receivers have color-coded binding-post connectors and easily programmable remotes, making setup and connectivity a breeze.
