Product Features
Harman Kardon AVR 1565 70-watts-per-channel surround-sound receiver
The AVR 1565 is a powerful, feature-rich receiver that includes HDMI inputs with 3D support and Deep Color technology, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding with Logic 7 processing. Five amplifiers rated at 70 watts per channel power the left, right, center and surround loudspeakers. The result is an exhilarating, fully immersive 5.1-channel soundscape for movies, TV shows and video games. With three HDMI ports and extensive video and audio connectivity, the AVR 1565 is also a perfect complement to your Blu-ray Disc player.
JBL Cinema 300 100-watt surround-sound speaker system
By immersing you in the action with four 100-watt surround-sound satellite speakers and a dedicated, 100-watt center-channel speaker, the Cinema 300 theater system delivers the full impact of a movie soundtrack. All the 3-inch (75-millimeter) low-frequency transducers feature PolyPlas™ cones, while 1-inch (25-millimeter) titanium-laminate dome tweeters handle the high frequencies.
JBL 150-watt powered subwoofer
Realistic, high-impact bass is essential for everything from hip-hop music to movie sound effects. The Cinema 300’s subwoofer features a fast-moving, 8-inch (200-millimeter) woofer and 150 watts of amplification for clean, lifelike low frequencies. Subwoofer phase, level and bass-boost controls permit easy tuning of bass performance to match room acoustics.
HDMI inputs with 3D and Deep Color
Three 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.
Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding
The AVR 1565 receiver delivers high-resolution audio to match the digital video of Blu-ray Disc and DVD 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 will always hear playback at its finest.
Multidevice, programmable/learning remote control
The Home Theater 1500 receiver simplifies your life with a programmable infrared (IR) remote control. The remote’s ergonomic design works seamlessly with the receiver’s multilingual on-screen display, guiding you through the system-setup process with consummate ease. The multidevice remote can also control your TV, cable boxes, satellite tuners and all other playback sources.
Logic 7 processing
Logic 7 technology transforms a stereo input into full 5.1-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.
Extensive video connectivity
In addition to three HDMI digital ports, the AVR 1565 receiver features one component and three composite video inputs that connect directly to legacy video sources – the receiver even transcodes component video to HDMI with a single connection to your TV. In this way, it is easier than ever to receive a high-definition signal from whatever video sources you select, including Blu-ray Disc, DVD and portable-music players.
Harman Kardon sound: A legacy of achievement
Exemplifying the balance among high style, modern design and audio ingenuity, the AVR 1565 receiver fully embodies the spirit of Harman Kardon innovation, a legacy that discerning audio enthusiasts have revered for almost 60 years. Harman Kardon engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing products that are dedicated to quality, durability and, most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.
