New home theater systems rock

Harman Debuts New Harman Kardon BDS 400 and BDS 800 Home Entertainment Systems
 
 

Harman Kardon has been in the business of making great home theater and audio system for a long time. The thing I have always liked about the companies offerings is that they not only perform well, but they are generally designed to look really cool too. HK has announced a new line of home entertainment systems in the BDS 400 and BDS 800 ranges.

The products will work for your home theater system with cinema sound and have all the hardware you need in one box for a quality home theater experience. Both of the models have Blu-ray players that can also play DVDs and CDs. An FM tuner is integrated for listening to music and it has on-screen menus to make controlling it easy with your TV on.

“With the ever-changing technology in home entertainment today, devices can be too complicated and cumbersome for homes,” said David Slump, president, HARMAN Consumer Division. “The BDS series simplifies the process. An immersive home theater experience is now possible for rooms of any size by just pressing Play.”

The BDS 400 is a 2.1 system with an integrated receiver and a subwoofer. It uses virtual surround sound technology to get more immersive sound using two speakers. The BDS 800 is a surround sound system with four voice-matched satellites and a center channel speaker along with a subwoofer. It has 5.1 capability and a 360-degree soundscape.

The BDS 400 2.1 system sells for $999 and has everything you need to set it up in your home. The BDS 800 is much more expensive at $1,499 and also has all components in one box. The BDS 400 uses an integrated BDS 2 SO receiver that can be purchased separately for $699 and the BDS 5 SO receiver separately is $799.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
