Harman Kardon Releases Three New Receivers


Harman-Kardon-AVR-1710-reciever-small.jpgHarman Kardon introduced three new audio/video receivers: AVR 1510, AVR 1610, and AVR 1710. The Harman Kardon AVR 1x10 Series utilizes new HARMAN GreenEdge technology, which provides energy savings allegedly without compromising performance by using a digital power supply to improve efficiency. A smaller, lightweight design also results in a lower carbon footprint.

The new AVR Series offers more ways to connect with support for compatible Apple devices including the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Functionality extends to up to six HDMI devices, all 4K pass through, 3D-ready to accommodate Blu-ray players, videogame consoles, computers, Apple TV, HDTV cable boxes and more. MHL input also allows high-definition content to play from a camera, phone or tablet directly to the big screen. In addition, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay, vTuner Internet radio and DLNA 1.5 introduce multiple streaming options.

The Harman Kardon AVR 1610 and AVR 1710 feature Roku Ready MHL support. By simply connecting a Roku Streaming Stick via the MHL port on the back of the AVR, consumers can instantly access the Roku experience -- featuring more than 750 entertainment channels -- directly from the AVR remote control.

The AVR 1610 and AVR 1710 also include the new HARMAN NSP Natural Sound Processing. Natural sound reproduction aims at recreating an acoustic event in its wholeness. That not only includes traditional fidelity features such as low distortion and realistic loudness, but also the correct localization of individual sources and orchestras, their sizes, shapes and distances, and in particular a sensation of the performance space where the original recorded event took place, or a plausible artificial space created by the content producer.

All three systems are controlled by the free, downloadable Harman Kardon remote app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The AVR 1510, AVR 1610, and AVR 1710 are all available now for $299, $399, and $549 respectively.
