Harman Audio Reveals New Home Cinema Systems

Looking for a new way to spruce up your home audio / home cinema experience? Without a solid surround sound system, your entire experience will likely be lacking. Which is precisely why Harman has just introduced a handful of new surround sound sets. The new BDS series features two integrated home entertainment systems, the Harman Kardon BDS 400 and Harman Kardon BDS 800. The company is calling these systems "all-in-one" sets, as they include everything you'd need to get a Blu-ray setup going in your home. There's an integrated receiver, a BD/DVD/CD player (complete with an FM radio tuner), and an on-screen setup menu that's said to be "foolproof."

The BDS 400 includes a powerful BDS 2 SO integrated receiver for 2.1 channel sound through two front speakers and a subwoofer, as well as Dolby Virtual Speaker technology. The BDS 800 is the most muscular system, delivering a truer surround-sound experience with four voice-matched satellites, a center-channel speaker, a subwoofer and the BDS 5 SO integrated receiver. As for pricing and exact specifications? That's all detailed below.
