Harman Kardon engineers have built the AVR 270 audio/video receiver for a premium home theatre 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 270 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 270 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 270 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.
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 270 for superb audio.
Lighter. Greener. Louder. The AVR 270 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 270’s sound to your specific listening room with the press of a few buttons.
Your AVR 270 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.
Enjoy many of your favourite radio stations, podcasts and Internet-only programming from around the globe in outstanding surround sound on your AVR 270. vTuner® Internet radio gives you quick, easy access to a vast selection of radio stations, podcasts and internet-exclusive content from around the world.
