Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design with lot of features The best 3D Blu Ray palyer I have used. Reduces the need for another receiver. Easy to install and use. I can't think of buying any more cheap 3D Blu Ray systems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great hardware, lousy controls I just got my set last week. I wanted a system where it is not nessesary to swtich on the TV if I just want to listen music. I was told that there is an app which gives me full controll of the unit. Unfortunately this app is quite useless. I must mention that i use internet radio quite often. There is no option for this at all. I am very dissapointed. I didn`t expect this from such a prestigous manufacturer.Going to bring it back, sorry!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I had high expectations for this unit and have been let down on almost every front. Yes, sound quality is great and the unit looks nice on the rack, but its features and interface are lackluster. Bluetooth often won't connect on its own and drops occasionally, I can't mix video/audio sources, my TV has to be on to play music, no worthwhile apps are available (Netflix and Amazon being the two I really wanted), the auto-volume control has only made loud advertisements louder and more obnoxious, no ability to label my HDMI inputs and the list goes on. I'd return this in a heartbeat if I could get my money back.

Can't play blu-ray 3d in my Harman Kardon Bds 580 .Any ideas?

Asked by: Reynirto
I took apart my BDS 580 because it kept saying &quot;Unknown disc&quot; when I put Blu-Rays in but it played DVDs just fine. I lifted up the disc drive inside and cleaned the lenses with rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and now it works great again! hope you still have yours around and get a chance to enjoy it again. (take GREAT care and/or have a professional do it, there is exposed high voltage parts inside!)

how to control volume of BDS580 using HDMI CEC/Simplink, its switch on off from Smart TV LG UH6500 and support ARC sound function BUt i cant control volume. LG says if device not compatible simplink function you have contact Home Theater vendor.

Asked by: rafiq
The BDS 580 is not CEC/Simplink compatible. It only has the ARC, that carries a digital audio signal from your TV or video display back to the BDS.

I have been looking for the BDS 5 multi-region Blu-ray and Amplifier. Can the 580 be unlocked? &nbsp;The 580 seems to be the same, except for that.&nbsp;
