Harman Kardon and JBL5.1 Home Theater Surround Sound System
FULL 1 YEAR WARRANTYHarman Kardon® and JBL® audio technologies combine with 3D video in the Home Theater 1500.
A Harman Kardon AVR 1565 high-definition audio/video receiver offers Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ surround-sound decoding, as well as HDMI® inputs with 3D support and Deep Color technology, to elevate your viewing experience dramatically.
Carefully voice-matched JBL Cinema 300 satellite and dual-driver center speakers get the most out of any soundtrack by surrounding you with pulse-quickening music, riveting sound effects and crisp, distinct dialogue, while the down-firing subwoofer delivers the deep bass that you have been craving.
Multiple HDMI connectors, as well as component and composite video inputs, allow flexible connections to your choice of audio and video sources, including the latest 3D-capable Blu-ray Disc™ players. Even lower-quality recordings receive an audio upgrade via proprietary Logic 7® processing, a HARMAN-exclusive technology that transforms stereo audio sources into realistic, 5.1-channel surround sound. And don’t forget the programmable/learning remote control, which can command not just the Home Theater 1500 system but also your TV, satellite tuner and/or cable box. This system has everything that a home entertainment system could need, and then some.

By immersing you in the action with four 100-watt surround-sound satellite speakers and a dedicated, 100-watt center-channel speaker, the Cinema 300 theater system delivers the full impact of a movie soundtrack. All the 3-inch (75-millimeter) low-frequency transducers feature PolyPlas™ cones, while 1-inch (25-millimeter) titanium-laminate dome tweeters handle the high frequencies.
JBL 150-watt powered subwoofer
Realistic, high-impact bass is essential for everything from hip-hop music to movie sound effects. The Cinema 300’s subwoofer features a fast-moving, 8-inch (200-millimeter) woofer and 150 watts of amplification for clean, lifelike low frequencies. Subwoofer phase, level and bass-boost controls permit easy tuning of bass performance to match room acoustics.
HDMI inputs with 3D and Deep Color
Three HDMI inputs with 3D and 30/36-bit Deep Color deliver high-definition digital video at resolutions up to 1080p with full-fidelity audio through a single cable. There is no loss of video or audio quality because of format conversion, just full-impact Hollywood excitement as its creators meant you to experience it.
Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding
The AVR 1565 receiver delivers high-resolution audio to match the digital video of Blu-ray Disc and DVD formats, unlocking the full potential of movie soundtracks formatted with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio coding. No matter what mode or mood you are in, you will always hear playback at its finest.
Multi-device, programmable/learning remote control
The Home Theater 1500 receiver simplifies your life with a programmable infrared (IR) remote control. The remote’s ergonomic design works seamlessly with the receiver’s multilingual on-screen display, guiding you through the system-setup process with consummate ease. The multidevice remote can also control your TV, cable boxes, satellite tuners and all other playback sources.
Logic 7 processing
Logic 7 technology transforms a stereo input into full 5.1-channel surround sound, courtesy of proprietary algorithms that make any audio source – HDMI, analog, component, composite or computer-based audio from a USB connection – truly spectacular. The result is optimal quality and a superior, enveloping experience that engulfs you in a 360-degree soundscape.
Extensive video connectivity
In addition to three HDMI digital ports, the AVR 1565 receiver features one component and three composite video inputs that connect directly to legacy video sources – the receiver even transcodes component video to HDMI with a single connection to your TV. In this way, it is easier than ever to receive a high-definition signal from whatever video sources you select, including Blu-ray Disc, DVD and portable-music players.
