The Harman/Kardon HS 300 is a 5.1 channel integrated home theatre system with a progressive-scan DVD wrapped up in a slim AV receiver. It is well priced at AU$1499 for the features it has to offer. All you need to do to get started is install a couple of batteries into the remote, wire up the speakers, sit back and enjoy.
This satellite/sub system features a contemporary design that will blend well with any dÃ©cor. The receiver's black front panel incorporates a DVD player, volume control and an LCD panel, while the rest of the unit's body is a silver grey. The volume control is backlit by a blue light and looks very elegant in dim lighting.
The rear of the receiver is logically laid out with all connections well marked and each of the speaker terminals labelled and colour-coded for easy connection. The matching front, centre and rear effect speakers feature a wrap around micromesh grill which is particularly attractive, as is the beautifully engineered sub-woofer.
Harman Kardon has incorporated two USB ports (called 'USB on the go') at the rear and right hand side of the unit to access content from flash memory cards, portable hard disks and digital cameras.
