Flagship Harman Kardon receiver with TI dual DSP

Harman Kardon is currently showing off its latest flaghship home theater receiver, the 7.2-channel AVR 7550HD, at the CEDIA Expo. Like some of the other receivers in its range, it supports Dolby Volume technology that keeps its volume consistent no matter what source is playing, and is the very first to use Texas Instruments' Aureus DA710 dual audio digital signal processor for improved sound quality. Faroudja DCDi Cinema digital video processing uses a Torino chipset to upscale videos to near 1080p quality.

There are four onboard HDMI 1.3a with Deep Color inputs, and the AVR 7550HD is fully compatible with other HDMI V1.3a with Deep Color devices. Otherwise, there is a USB port for playing music from a memory stick, the playback of which can be navigated by the remote control, and an Internet radio tuner is also present. Multizone support is present, with a dedicated remote included for a second room.

Harman Kardon has not revealed a price or a release date for the AVR 7550HD, though pricing is expected to fall in the $2,800 range.
