Scary Television Shows

You guys! Beware! I bought one of these Harman Kardon 7.1 Channel A/V Receivers... AND IT WAS HAUNTED!

Now, I know most of you won't believe me, but it's true. I know what I saw. I turned on the television and there it was: an episode of According to Jim! Sounds normal enough, right? Except for one thing: the original run of According to Jim finished on June 2nd! OF 2009! I WAS BEING CONTACTED BY A SHOW FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE!

What was it trying to tell me? I don't know and besides that's not important. The point here is that it came through my Harman Kardon!

So, ask yourself - the 3D-viewing capabilities, the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, the DCDi Cinema video processing - is all that stuff worth BEING HAUNTED?!?!

HDMI® v1.4.a for 3-D viewing:
The AVR 2600 features HDMI® v.1.4A technology for 3-D televisions. Don’t worry if you happen to have an older AVR 2600 model—simply upgrade with the new 3-D software through a free download available from Harman®.

Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding:
The AVR 2600 delivers high-resolution audio to match the digital video common in Blu-ray Disc™ formats, unlocking their full potential with Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding. No matter what mode or mood you’re in, you’ll always hear playback at its finest.

Dolby volume technology:
Whether you’re watching your favorite television show, a Blu-ray Disc™ recording, a DVD or an MPEG-3 or -4 video file downloaded through a USB port, Dolby® volume technology will maintain a consistent volume level for all of your content.

Superior Logic 7® (5.1 and 7.1) sound processing:
Logic 7® technology transforms standard stereo input into 5.1- and 7.1-channel surround sound, courtesy of proprietary algorithms that makes any playlist sound spectacular. From HDMI™ formats to computer-based audio delivered via USB connections, Logic 7® processing guarantees that you enjoy a superior entertainment experience.

Faroudja DCDi Cinema™ video processing:
Faroudja DCDi Cinema™ video processing technology dramatically improves the quality of images by reducing video artifacting with digital or analog signals. That means fewer lines and a smoother picture, especially when there’s movement across your television screen.

Four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output:
With four HDMI® inputs and one HDMI output, the AVR 2600 maximizes audio/video performance while drastically reducing connection confusion with your existing equipment. Simply put, it’s easier than ever to receive a high-definition signal from the video sources you select.

EZSet/EQ™ equalization:
EzSet/EQ™ calibration ensures the best possible audio performance from your speakers by measuring the peaks and valleys within playback frequency. In a few steps, the EzSet/EQ system automatically tailors the AVR 2600’s playback to your specific room conditions.

The Bridge III docking station for iPod and iPhone (not included):
Thanks to The Bridge IIIP docking station, you’ll hear optimized digital tracks in the comfort of your own home. Simply connect The Bridge IIIP to your iPod® or iPhone® with a single cable and navigate through your music and video libraries courtesy of the systems high-definition graphical user interface (GUI).

Along with HDMI® v.1.4A technology with 3-D capability and four HDMI inputs, the AVR 2600 also comes with high-definition component-video cables, providing yet another level of flexibility when pairing your AVR 2600 system with your existing audio products.

Compressed music tools:
Using compressed music tools to improve playback quality, the AVR 2600 is a completely self-sufficient receiver designed to elevate the sound quality of your favorite songs without requiring additional audio equipment.

Preprogrammed/Learning remote control:
The AVR 2600 simplifies your life with an available IR remote. With its impressive, ergonomic design, the programmable control works seamlessly with the AVR 2600 multilingual, on-screen display, guiding you through the system setup process with the greatest of ease.

Quadruple bass crossover manager:
The AVR 2600 offers an advanced and versatile bass manager, allowing audiophiles to set the crossover to one of six specific frequencies for each of the four different speaker groups. In addition, the AVR 2600 automatically sets the proper matching, compatible low-pass frequency point (to the LFE output) to ensure that none of the low-frequency information is lost.

Multiroom Audio:
Infuse each room with the same high-definition playback by adding multiple new input sources that turn your home into multi-layer entertainment zone. It’s just one more way to take advantage of the extensive capabilities the AVR 2600 offers.

High-current capability (HCC):
The 65-watt AVR 2600 home theater system features high-current capability (HCC), allowing speakers to emit sound that’s both accurate and true. HCC raises overall decibel levels, making your favorite music, movies and multimedia sound better than you ever imagined.

Harman/Kardon® Sound: A Legacy of Achievement:
Exemplifying the balance among high style, modern design and audio ingenuity, the versatile AVR 2600 fully embodies the spirit of Harman/Kardon® innovation, a legacy represented by discerning audio enthusiasts for almost 60 years. Harman/Kardon® engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing products that are dedicated to quality, durability and most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.
