Compact home theater audio system
The Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system is an all-in-one home entertainment solution featuring a 5.1-channel 3-D Blu-ray Disc™ receiver with HDMI® v.1.4a output, four dual midrange satellites, a dedicated dual midrange center and a downward-firing, 200-watt, powered subwoofer.
HDMI® v.1.4a with 3-d, deep color and audio return channel (ARC)r
The Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system includes HDMI® v.1.4a output with 3-D, 30/36-bit Deep Color and Audio Return Channel (ARC) technology, delivering HD digital video (up to 1080p) and full-resolution audio through a single cable. There is no loss of video or audio quality due to conversion, just full-impact Hollywood excitement as it’s meant to be experienced.
Four dual midrange satellite speakers
The BDS 770 home theater system’s four identical speakers with dual midrange drivers help to ensure a consistent sound from speaker to speaker and dramatically improve the clarity of directional sounds.
Dedicated dual midrange center speaker
The dual midrange center-channel speaker in the Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system delivers crisp, distinct dialogue and effects, and is voice-matched to the four dual midrange satellite speakers for improved performance at the highest listening levels.
200-watt powered subwoofer
Unlike conventional front-firing subwoofers, the Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system’s 200-watt sub fires downward, interacting with the floor (rather than the walls) for enhanced bass response. Volume, phase and bass-boost controls make it easy to synchronize bass output with the satellites and tune the performance for your room acoustics.
Easy-to-use, learning remote control
A single remote controls the Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system as well as your TV, cable boxes and satellite tuners. Intuitive on-screen menus help make system setup and operation stress-free, even for novices.
Digital amplifier technology
The Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system keeps audio signals in the digital domain from source to output, reducing conversion artifacts that can muddy the sound. Also, digital amplifiers are smaller and run cooler than their analog counterparts, delivering an optimal entertainment experience while saving energy.
Automatic playlist function
The Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system automatically remembers your favorite tracks on USB drives or CD-R discs so you can replay them as often as you’d like with a minimal amount of button-pushing.
Upgradable via usb port
You can upgrade the Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system’s receiver via an on-screen menu as firmware updates become available, keeping your system’s features and performance current for years to come.
Gold-plated, binding-post speaker connectors
For home theater enthusiasts looking to use the Harman Kardon® BDS 770 home theater system in combination with legacy products, its receiver features heavy-duty, gold-plated binding posts that help ensure secure speaker connections with a variety of speaker-wire and terminal types.
