75 watts per channel

The Harman Kardon AVR 70 delivers solid, detailed sound at 75 watts per channel. Optimized to fill an average-sized home theatre with anything but average audio, the AVR 70 ensures that your music will always hit the right notes, sound effects will always feel realistic, and dialogue will always be delivered crisply.


Three HDMI inputs with 3D and Audio Return Channel

3D movies play as vividly and realistically in your home as they would in a movie theatre, thanks to the HDMI connectivity on the AVR 70. Experience everything from a 3D TV to a 3D Blu-ray Disc™ recording with an astonishing level of realism. An Audio Return Channel simplifies setup by feeding audio back from a “smart TV” through the AVR.


5.1-channel surround sound

The AVR 70 can power a full 5.1-channel surround-sound system. The engineers who created the AVR have included a high-current capability (HCC), ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier for accurate, dynamic audio, giving your home system a spectacular range of sound.


Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding

Hear films in the way that filmmakers intend them you to hear them. The AVR 70’s Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding create an immersive, high-resolution sound environment that matches the high-resolution HDMI video from HD sources such as Blu-ray Disc media.


Extensive connectivity

The AVR 70 features three HDMI inputs for all of your modern digital video sources. It also has two composite video inputs for legacy sources. Three digital audio inputs and five analogue inputs keep you connected to all your audio sources, while a front-panel USB port allows you to play MP3 and WMA files.


Night mode

While some people sleep, you stay up to watch. But how do you enjoy the full experience of the AVR 70 without waking anyone up? Simple. Use night mode, which reduces the volume on loud sounds and increases the volume on quiet sounds. Now you can enjoy a full experience at quiet listening levels without having to adjust the volume all the time.


IR remote control

The AVR 70 comes with a fully functional IR (infrared) remote control that can make other remotes unnecessary. Optimized to run most of the devices in your home theatre system, this remote eliminates the need for a table full of remotes. Instead, it enables you to return your coffee table to its intended purpose: a footrest.


Dot-matrix information display

An easy-to-read dot-matrix display on the front panel of the AVR 70 allows you to listen to music on your system without making you turn on the TV to control its functionality.
