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.

Multizone functionality

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.

DLNA 1.5 certified connectivity

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.

HARMAN Music Manager (available via download)

This free, downloadable software enables your AVR 2700 to enjoy DLNA compatibility with your Mac OS devices or Windows® operating system. And it even helps organize and clean up the cover art on your music files.


Hear how truly amazing your streaming music can sound. AirPlay allows you to stream audio content from your iOS® devices and from iTunes through your AVR 2700 for superb audio.

Eco-friendly design

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.

USB port

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. It even lets you access music stored on a flash drive. Furthermore, the included AVR remote gives you a convenient way to control most connected devices.

vTuner Internet radio

Enjoy many of your favorite radio stations, podcasts and Internet-only programming from around the globe in outstanding surround sound on your AVR 2700. vTuner® Internet radio gives you quick, easy access to a vast selection of radio stations, podcasts and internet-exclusive content from around the world.

Downloadable from the iTunes store or Google Play Market, the free HK Remote Control App allows you to transform your smartphone or tablet into an easy-to-use remote control. Compatible with most iOS and Android™ devices, its high-definition graphical user interface gives you full control of your AVR 2700 through the convenience of your favorite portable device.

HDMI inputs with 3D, CEC and Deep Color

3D content plays as vividly and realistically in your home as it would in a movie theater, thanks to the AVR 2700’s advanced HDMI connectivity. Experience everything from a 3D TV to a 3D Blu-ray Disc™ recording with astonishing realism. CEC further simplifies the control of compatible HDMI-connected products from the AVR’s remote control.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding

Hear films on your AVR 2700 the way the filmmakers intended them you to hear them – no matter which spot you get on the couch. Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ decoding create an immersive, high-resolution sound environment that matches the high-resolution HDMI video from HD sources such as Blu-ray Disc recordings.

AVR 2700 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great receiver I bought this as an upgrade to my last Harman/Kardon receiver. I needed a receiver with lots of hdmi inputs. I've always stuck with this brand because of the simplicity, and sleek look at a great price. The 2700 did not let me down. Another great bonus was the lightness of this receiver. My last one weighed 40lbs and it was a bear to setup every time I moved. This one is much easier to deal with if I have to add new equipment to my setup. This pushes my Magnepans just fine. No complaints about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this unit the day it came out to replace a AV-247. You just can't go wrong with any HK product. If it got any better it would be illegal.
