7.1-channel sound at 100 watts per channel
Harman Kardon engineers have built the AVR 2700 audio/video receiver for a premium home theater experience. No room is too big for the receiver’s high-current, 100-watt-per-channel amplifier. And speaking of the channels: With 7.1 of them, the AVR 2700 empowers you to add an extra dimension to the traditional five-channel surround-sound setup, or go with 5.1 channels in a main viewing room and use the extra two channels to power the sound in another room.
The AVR 2700 receiver can simultaneously play two different sound sources in two different zones. When you choose to connect your main system to 5.1 channels, you can use its other two sound channels as an independent system in a second room.

Hear your networked media sources as never before in pitch-perfect surround sound. DLNA 1.5 enables the AVR 2700 to stream audio from compatible devices on your home network, allowing you to enjoy them with a level of quality that you would not have thought possible.

Lighter. Greener. Louder. The AVR 2700 uses a custom designed digital power supply that delivers the amplifier power and superior sound you expect from Harman Kardon without the need for hefty transformers. The result is the same power as conventional designs with a lower overall carbon footprint impact.
The Harman Kardon EzSet/EQ system automatically sets key system parameters and fine-tunes the AVR 2700’s sound to your specific listening room with the press of a few buttons.
Your AVR 2700 doesn’t need a docking station. Instead, its front-panel USB port allows an easy-access connection point for virtual any iOS device.
