Product Features:
  • Five 95-watt-per-channel amplifiers
    The AVR 1650 high-performance receiver delivers 95 watts per channel with the ability to power a full 5.1-channel surround-sound system. 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 1650 to a powered subwoofer to generate additional low-frequency excitement.
  • HDMI with 3D, Deep Color and Audio Return Channel
    Four 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 1650 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.
  • Logic 7 processing
    Harman Kardon 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.
  • Compatibility with iPod and iPhone via The Bridge IIIP
    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 1650’s system remote control to navigate and play your favorite music and video tracks.
  • EzSet/EQ auto calibration
    The EzSet/EQ auto-calibration process tailors the AVR 1650’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.
  • Four HDMI inputs
    Four 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.
  • Extensive audio/video connectivity
    In addition to four HDMI digital ports, the AVR 1650 features one component and three composite video inputs that connect directly to legacy video sources. The receiver even transcodes component video to the HDMI interface with a single connection to your TV. In this way, it is easier than ever before to receive a high-definition signal from whatever video sources you select, including Blu-ray Disc, DVD and portable-music players.
  • FM/AM tuner
    The AVR 1650’s FM section features an 87.5MHz – 108.0MHz frequency range, while the AM section handles frequencies from 520kHz to 1720kHz. Thirty station presets let you return to your favorite stations with a simple press of a button.
  • Color-coded binding-post speaker connectors
    By accepting banana plugs, spade connectors, pin connectors or bare wire, the AVR 1650’s binding-post connectors provide secure links for your speaker cables. Color-coding of these connectors reduces errors while you’re hooking up your speakers to the appropriate channel amplifiers.
  • Multidevice, programmable/learning remote control
    The AVR 1650 simplifies your life with a programmable infrared (IR) remote control. Its ergonomic design works seamlessly with the AVR 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.
  • Headphone jack with HARMAN headphone surround mode
    When you need an intimate, private listening experience, the AVR 1650’s headphone output with HARMAN headphone surround mode creates a realistic surround-sound experience from stereo headphones. Now you can benefit from one-on-one listening – yet not sacrifice one note of audio integrity – as you experience Hollywood thrills without disturbing others.
  • Upgradable firmware via USB port
    To ensure that your AVR 1650 receiver is consistently running in line with its full potential, you can keep its firmware up to date by adding upgrades via its built-in USB port. This capability simplifies and improves the receiver’s operation and is the perfect way to protect your investment.
  • Detachable IEC power cord
    To help simplify system installation, we’ve supplied the AVR 1650 with a detachable IEC power cord – a high-performance hookup for this high-powered A/V receiver. If you run the power cord to the location you have chosen for your AVR 1650, you will dramatically simplify subsequent system installation.
