Harman Kardon is a company that thinks ahead and one of the greatest features we provide on our AVR receivers is the ability to upgrade them when new firmware and technologies become available. To accommodate the excitement of 3D Video, Harman Kardon is pleased to announce a two prong strategy to deliver compatibility with the latest advancement in consumer electronics.
Starting in September, all Harman Kardon AVR 2600, AVR 3600 and AVR 7550HD models will be shipping with HDMI v.1.4a with 3D. This will allow full compatibility with all 3D formats from either Blu-ray players or satellite and cable services.
At the same time, all current owners of these models, regardless of the date of purchase, will be able to update their existing AVRâ??s to HDMI v.1.4a with 3D. This upgrade will be available at no charge from www.harmankardon.com. All you will need to do is download the software to a USB memory stick, insert the stick drive into the front panel USB jack of your AVR, and with a few button presses on the remote control, the AVR will be upgraded. No direct connection between the computer and AVR is required or software â??loaderâ?? is required, greatly simplifying the upgrade process.
With features like four HDMI inputs with audio processing, Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing, all the latest Dolby and DTS audio modes plus our own Logic 7 processing, adjustable A/V Sync Delay and seven amplifier channels featuring our high-current ultrawide-bandwidth design, the AVR-2600 provides audio and video performance thats sure to satisfy even the most demanding audiophile.

Make Your Movie Library Look and Sound Its Best
| The AVR 2600 incorporates the
Harman Kardon's acclaimed, high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier
Harman Kardon receivers have earned worldwide accolades for their
uncompromising sound quality, and the AVR 2600 builds upon this
renowned heritage. It incorporates the brand's acclaimed, high-current,
ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier sections, which generate 65 watts for
each of the receiver's seven channels. Whether it's the exciting sound
of explosions from the latest movie or the detailed nuances of your
favorite musical artist, the AVR 2600's amplifier delivers sound with
uncompromised realism, dynamics and subtlety.
And what the
AVR 2600 does for audio, it also does for video. You know that the
latest Blu-ray Disc movie or high-definition broadcast is going to
look great on your high-definition display, but what about everything
else? The Harman Kardon AVR 2600 improves the look of
standard-definition video with advanced Faroudja Torino processing,
automatically upscaling lower-resolution sources to the 1080p HD
standard. You can also independently configure your display settings
and specify the optimal picture quality and aspect ratio for sources
such as game consoles or your DVD collection.
When it comes
to surround-sound decoding, the AVR 2600 has you covered. In addition
to decoding the latest Blu-ray Disc and surround formats such as Dolby
TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, the AVR 2600 also includes proprietary
Logic 7 processing, which is capable of generating discrete 5.1-channel
or 7.1-channel sound from traditional two-channel sources. There is
even a MP3 Music Enhancer mode, which will bring new life to any
compressed digital music.
Set It and Forget It

your system at the listening level you want easy
Tired of constantly having to adjust the volume on your current A/V
setup? Do loud commercials send you running for the remote control? Are
you experiencing dramatic differences in system performance at lower
volume levels? Harman Kardon and Dolby Laboratories have the solution.
The Harman Kardon AVR 2600 is equipped with Dolby Volume, Dolby
Laboratories' latest sound-processing technology. Set your preferred
listening volume once, and the AVR 2600 will use Dolby Volume to
maintain that same volume level across all of your content, no matter
what source produces it. In addition, Dolby Volume on the AVR 2600
improves surround-sound performance at low listening levels. The AVR
