Supporting 3D signals via audio/video receivers

by pbrookstx1 / November 14, 2013 7:51 AM PST

I have a HarmanKardon AVR1700 (about 1 yr old new). Really like it. Recently I was considering a 3D Tv purchase but then i stopped to think about whether or not this receiver would work with it. I don't see anything in its manual about 3D - am I just out of luck??? Or is there a way to make it happen?

No the AVR doesn't have to be 3D compatible...

for you to enjoy 3D tv. With 3d avr you might connect the equipments a certain way but without it you do it some other way. I talk like this because I don't know the exact details, hehe. But in any case the AVR do not need to be 3d. However, the BDplayer has to be 3D compatible though.

Get one that has the 2D to 3D conversion. It may save you a little bit of money of buying 3d discs all the time.
