The AVR 2650 high-performance receiver delivers 95 watts per channel with the ability to power a full 5.1-channel, surround-sound system plus two additional surround or front-height loudspeaker outputs. A high-current capability (HCC), ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design ensures accurate, dynamic sound with enhanced clarity and realism, even at the highest listening levels. You can also connect the AVR 2650 to a powered subwoofer to generate additional low-frequency excitement.

Six HDMI inputs with 3D and 30/36-bit Deep Color deliver high-definition digital video at resolutions up to 1080p with full-fidelity audio through a single cable. There is no loss of video or audio quality because of format conversion, just full-impact Hollywood excitement as its creators meant you to experience it. Audio Return Channel (ARC) enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data “upstream” to an A/V receiver, thereby increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for a audio connection.

The AVR 2650 receiver can serve as a multimedia entertainment hub that can do much more than play Blu-ray Disc media, DVDs and CDs. Connected directly to your home’s Ethernet network, the receiver can also stream music files and Internet-based stations from your PC, thereby adding a number of new and diverse entertainment options.

Dolby Volume technology maintains the same volume level no matter what entertainment you’re viewing. You need to set the AVR 2650 volume level only once to eliminate unpredictable volume differences among TV shows, commercials and movies.

The AVR 2650 delivers high-resolution audio to match the digital video of Blu-ray Disc formats, unlocking the full potential of movie soundtracks formatted with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio coding. No matter what mode or mood you are in, you’ll always hear playback at its finest.

HARMAN Logic 7 technology transforms a stereo input into full 7.1-channel surround sound, courtesy of proprietary algorithms that make any audio source – HDMI, analog, component, composite or computer-based audio from a USB connection – truly spectacular. The result is optimal quality and a superior, enveloping experience that engulfs you in a 360-degree soundscape.

For 7.1-channel playback, Dolby Pro Logic® IIz surround-sound processing lets you add a pair of front-height channels for an extra sound dimension to your movies, music or video games. Now, a horizontal sound field from stereo and 5.1 material – with sound being directed at you from only one plane – becomes a surround-sound experience with added depth and dimension.

The optional Harman Kardon The Bridge IIIP docking station (sold separately) works with an Apple iPod or iPhone to expand your entertainment options beyond DVD and Blu-ray Disc media. Once connected, The Bridge IIIP even charges your Apple device and works seamlessly with the AVR 2650’s system remote control to navigate and play your favorite music and video tracks.

The HARMAN EzSet/EQ™ auto-calibration process tailors the AVR 2650’s loudspeaker outputs to match playback volume levels for your specific room conditions automatically. The system features an easy-to-follow menu display and a plug-in calibration microphone.

Six HDMI input ports let you digitally interconnect your entire system for maximum audio/video performance. HDMI-format ports dramatically reduce connection confusion while ensuring the greatest chance for compatibility with whatever audio/video equipment you are planning to connect.

Can you play music from your phone on this system  ?

Asked by: Magic
The AVR2650 was developed in 2010, just before Bluetooth became popular in the stereo audio field. Unfortunately this unit does not support Bluetooth. But if you have it connected to your network, you can play music from any device that supports DLNA. Another option can be the BTA10, a Bluetooth unit that allows you to turn virtually any system into a system with Bluetooth. You can check it out at http://www.harmankardon.com/stereo-accessories/BTA+10.html.

I have an AVR-2650 and have setup the Internet Radio feature, but am not getting any audio output. Does output go to speaker ports by default? I have a sound bar which is attached to an Optical Out port, so I was expecting to hear audio.

Asked by: canuckbizman
The AVR and soundbar cannot/should not be used in tandem. A soundbar is used when a receiver and 5.1 speaker system is not available or possible. As for the connection you are making, only the components connected to the optical inputs on the AVR will feed to the optical output, this is why your Internet radio is not getting to soundbar.
