Make Your Movie Library Look and Sound Its Best
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

enjoying your system at the listening level you want easy
Set It and Forget It
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
2600 even allows you to customize the performance of Dolby Volume to match
your listening preference.

microphone automatically calibrates and equalizes your AVR 2600. View
Fine-Tune Your System Like a Pro
There's an important difference between your home audio system and the systems
that you hear in movie theaters and concert halls. Professional systems are
precisely calibrated by audio technicians to deliver the best possible
surround-sound experience. Harman Kardon's powerful EzSet/EQ system gives you
all the tools you need to achieve professional sound calibration at home. This
proprietary, automated room-equalization and system-calibration feature
simplifies system setup and achieves optimal audio quality in any listening
room. It automatically measures the frequency-response dips and peaks in the
listening room with an advanced, omni-directional microphone and applies a
precise, compensating equalization curve to achieve extraordinary sonic
accuracy. Speaker-output levels and delay times are calibrated as well. The
system sounds complicated, but using it couldn't be easier. Just connect the
included microphone to your Harman Kardon AVR 2600 receiver and follow the
on-screen instructions. With a few simple steps, the AVR 2600 will
automatically adjust the sound to suit your exact room parameters.
Listen to What You Want, Where You Want
As any family will tell you, a two-zone entertainment system can be a real
crowd pleaser. While the kids watch their favorite movie on the theater system
in the den, for example, you can be out listening to your favorite CD on the
deck or in the back yard. The AVR 2600 makes setting up a basic multi-room
system easy. First, build a high-performance, 5.1-channel home theater around
your video display. Then assign the two remaining channels to a second zone,
wire an extra pair of speakers to a nearby room or outdoors, and you're done.

videos with you. It's also a great way to simplify the entertainment
experience at home. Whether you have an iPod, or an iPhone, you'll definitely
want to add the optional Bridge III iPod dock to your Harman Kardon AVR 2600.
The Bridge III is a universal dock that connects with a single cable and lets
