Harman Kardon has unveiled two new entries in their extensive lineup of  audio and video receivers.  The AVR 2700 and AVR 3700 support network connectivity and feature Apple AirPlay and 4K video scaling. Even better you can control each unit via the free Harman Kardon Remote iOS app. Users can expect superb performance thanks to “the acclaimed Harman Kardon high-current, ultrawide bandwidth amplifier design for top sonic performance.” Both new receivers boast “eight HDMI inputs with full 3D compatibility and high-resolution Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio format decoding.”

The AVR 2700 retails for $799.95 while the AVR 3700 is $999.95. There aren’t too many fundamental differences between the two models but a couple of the upgrades certainly seem worthwhile. The AVR 3700 provides 7.2-channel surround sound with 125 watts per channel compared to the AVR 2700‘s 7.1-channel surround and 100 watts per channel. While both support network connectivity, only the AVR 3700 supports WiFi.

Both receivers are available now. expand full story
