Welcome to the next dimension in home theater Bring the latest cutting-edge thrills to your living room with HDMI with 3-D, Deep Color and Audio Return Channel – as you experience the latest in 3-D home entertainment when combining the AVR 1650 with a 3-D TV and Blu-ray Disc recordings or cable or satellite sources.

One of the most respected Harman Kardon features has always been foresight – and by integrating HDMI with 3-D into its latest line of receivers, Harman Kardon engineering continues to be a leader in this area.
Power yourself to 5-channel surround sound If you’re going to kick-start the home theater of your dreams, a high-performance receiver – with at least five channels of surround-sound potential – is probably high on your wish list. That’s what the AVR 1650 delivers, offering 95 watts per channel and the ability to power a full 5-channel surround-sound system. It also features high-current capability (HCC) and an ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design for accurate, dynamic sound – so you can experience virtually the same spectacular sound effects at home as you do in your local cineplex.
Top-of-the-line audio technologies Unlock the full potential of your Blu-ray Disc recordings with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. No matter what mode or mood you’re in, you’ll hear audio the way its creators intended – as you immerse yourself in a 360-degree surround soundscape. In addition, the AVR 1650 also benefits from having an HDMI Audio Return Channel, which lets you listen to your TV’s audio through your home theater system instead of through the TV speakers. This feature affects greater sound quality and ease of use – a benefit you’re likely to appreciate along with the 30 FM/AM station presets, which let you enjoy all your favorite radio stations, without having to program them by yourself.
Surround yourself with superior Logic 7 processing Offering multichannel sound for your movies, music and games, the AVR 1650 employs Harman Kardon Logic 7 processing, which transforms conventional stereo sources (such as CDs or iPod devices) into 5.1-channel surround sound using algorithms. The result? Optimal audio quality that makes something good into something spectacular – while engulfing you in a 360-degree soundscape. Whether you’re listening to HDMI, analog or component sources, Logic 7 technology allows you to experience the surrounding ambient sounds that are already in the stereo mixes by converting, or upmixing, two-channel stereo signals into five- or seven-channel signals. This ensures you’ll get a superior entertainment experience.
Play your iPod and/or iPhone device through your home theater system Over the years, iPod and iPhone devices have redefined how you consume music, allowing you to take your favorite songs with you – wherever you go. And now, thanks to the AVR 1650 and The Bridge IIIP docking station (available separately), you can experience these same digital tracks with better quality than ever – right at home. To do it, simply connect The Bridge IIIP to your iPod or iPhone device and AVR 1650 with a single cable – and, using the provided remote control, navigate your music and video libraries using the receiver’s on-screen display (OSD). Your musical options will increase immediately – and instantly sound like never before. The Bridge IIIP can even play back video from your iPod or iPhone device.
Achieve the best possible audio performance Improve your home theater system’s performance with the touch of a button by setting speaker volume, proper speaker balance and timing for 5.1-channel surround-sound speakers. By automatically measuring the frequency-response peaks and valleys in the listening room using the microphone (included), EzSet/EQ processing allows for a precise, compensating equalization curve to help your system gain extraordinary sonic accuracy. And even though the EzSet/EQ system may sound complicated to set up, it’s not. Just connect the microphone to your AVR 1650 receiver and follow the on-screen instructions. In a few simple steps, EzSet/EQ equalization will automatically tailor sound to your speakers and specific room conditions, sending it directly toward listeners in the most ideal position – ear level for a seated listener.
