Sydney, January 2008 – For over 50 years Harman Kardon® has set the standard in high performance systems and with the introduction of the new Cinelife 7BQ Integrated Home Theatre system, the company builds upon its distinguished heritage and reaffirms its leadership in home entertainment system solutions. The Cinelife 7BQ features the HKTS 7BQ 5.1-channel home theatre loudspeaker system, the DVD27 DVD player and the AVR137 A/V receiver.
Harman Kardon HKTS 7BQ
The HKTS 7BQ 5.1-channel loudspeaker system includes four two-way, magnetically shielded satellite speakers, a two-way shielded centre channel speaker and a powered subwoofer. Although compact in design, the HKTS 7BQ delivers a powerful multichannel sound. The satellites employ high-output, premium-quality 76mm (3-inch) woofers and a 12mm (1/2-inch) titanium-laminate-dome tweeter. The centre channel speaker features the same 76mm (3-inch) woofers and a 20mm (3/4-inch) dome tweeter for articulate reproduction of dialogue, music and effects, and is precisely voicematched with the satellites to create an expansive surround sound listening environment. The HKTS 7BQ’s subwoofer contains a 250mm (10-inch) woofer and a powerful 100 watt amplifier to deliver superb bass-low-frequency performance and provide optimum sound quality in any domestic listening room.
Harman Kardon DVD27
The DVD27 may be slim in design, but it doesn’t scrimp on features. Indeed, this compact giant offers progressive-scan-video perfection with super-fine slow motion, a backlit remote and imageformat playback from JPEGs and Kodak Picture CDs, as well as MP3 and WMA audio files. A builtin test signal (comprises an industry standard colour bar and grey scale calibration screen) for critical screen setup and high-end DACs (digital to analog converters) for regular analog connectivity make the DVD27 a true ‘best in class’ performer.
Harman Kardon AVR137
The AVR137 has been custom designed to provide all the excitement and detail of todays high energy movie sound tracks and every nuance of your musical selections. The AVR137 features 30 watts per channel when hooked up to a 5-channel system, and even more in 2-channel music mode. The AVR137 A/Vreceiver is among the most versatile and multi-featured available, incorporating a wide range of listening options; in addition to Dolby Digital and DTS decoding for digital sources, a broad choice of analog surround modes are available for use with sources such as CD, VCR, TV broadcasts and the AVR’s own FM/AM tuner.
The Cinelife 7BQ is styled to compliment today’s flat-screen video displays and contemporary TV’s. It offers multiple installation options; the satellites can be wall-mounted or placed on a pair of floor stands, such as the HTFS 2BQ. These Harman Kardon stands feature a curved, slim-profile design in black lacquer that perfectly matches the satellite speakers. The centre channel speaker is designed for easy placement on top of a TV, positioning it for optimum sound coverage. This system also comes with all cables necessary to get it going, in addition to wall-mounting brackets for the satellites.
The Cinelife 7BQ is available in February 2008 for the recommended retail price of $1,699 from authorised Harman Kardon dealers. The optional HTFS 2BQ stands are available now for the recommended retail price of $199 pair.
