Harmon Kardon AVR 430 7.1-Channel Audio/Video Surround Receiver
Description:

Harman Kardon's high-performance, 7.1-channel AVR 430 audio/video receiver mates power with convenience, flexibility with quality. When it comes to format compatibility, switching and distribution power, audio refinement, and exciting audio-enhancing features, the AVR 430 is quite nearly in a league of its own. The receiver pumps 65 watts per channel x 7, or 80 wpc in stereo mode (2 channels driven). Its superior audio quality derives from its high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth amplification, its 192 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog audio chips, the latest Cirrus Logic CS 49400 24-bit, dual-core DSP with 32-bit post-processing, and compatibility with all popular and many leading-edge surround-sound formats. The AVR 430's suite of technologies includes HDCD processing and Harman Kardon's exclusive switchable front-panel audio, video, and coaxial digital-audio inputs. The AVR 430 also offers complete digital bass management for all inputs--critical for balancing the inputs from different surround formats--including the 6/8-channel "direct" analog inputs to accommodate playback of high-resolution digital-audio formats such as DVD-Audio and SACD. The receiver's bass management seamlessly integrates these formats with any speaker system, regardless of the capabilities of the playback device. The AVR 430 also includes a host of important features such as A/V Sync Delay for synchronizing the audio and video signals in systems using digital video displays, external video processors, or with digital sources such as PVRs, satellite, or digital cable; RS-232 connectivity for bidirectional remote control and firmware upgradeability; Harman Kardon's exclusive EzSet remote with two-line LCD display; Dolby Virtual Speaker and Dolby Headphone surround processing; MP3 playback (through a digital-audio connection with your MP3-CD-compatible source component); and a slot-mounted tuner that may be upgraded at a future date to accommodate HD Radio. Of special interest to custom installers, the AVR 430 offers extensive multi-room capabilities with assignable amplifier configuration and A-BUS Ready connectivity; a comprehensive selection of digital and analog video and audio connections, including two assignable, wide-bandwidth (50 MHz), HDTV-compatible component-video switching inputs; 6 digital-audio inputs, front-panel and S-video inputs and outputs; and a dedicated Zone II remote for multi room operation, among other features. The RS-232 port on the AVR 430 is its link to additional features, as it works in concert with the receiver's extensive flash memory to permit upgrades to both the operating system firmware and the software that powers the surround decoding. Should new surround modes or features become available in the future, this capability makes it possible to upgrade the receiver directly from a compatible personal computer.
