HDMI with 3D and Deep Color

Four HDMI inputs with 3D and 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.

Seven-channel, 85W-per-channel amplifiers

The AVR 3600 high-performance receiver delivers 85 watts per channel with the ability to power a full 7.1-channel surround-sound system. A high-current capability (HCC), ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design ensures accurate, dynamic sound with enhanced clarity and realism, even at the highest listening levels. You can also connect the AVR 3600 to a powered subwoofer to generate additional low-frequency excitement.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio recording

The AVR 3600 delivers high-resolution audio to match the digital video of Blu-ray Disc 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, youll always hear playback at its finest.

Dolby Volume

Dolby Volume technology maintains the same volume level no matter what entertainment youre viewing. You need to set the AVR 3600 volume level only once to eliminate unpredictable volume differences among TV shows, commercials and movies.

Logic 7 processing

HARMAN Logic 7 technology transforms a stereo input into full 7.1-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.

Four HDMI inputs

Four HDMI input ports let you digitally interconnect your entire system for maximum audio/video performance. HDMI-format ports dramatically reduce connection confusion while ensuring the greatest chance for compatibility with whatever audio/video equipment you are planning to connect.

EzSet/EQ auto calibration

The HARMAN EzSet/EQTM auto-calibration process tailors the AVR 3600s loudspeaker outputs to match playback volume levels for your specific room conditions automatically. The system features an easy-to-follow menu display and a plug-in calibration microphone.

The Bridge III docking station for iPod and iPhone

The supplied Harman Kardon The Bridge III docking station works with an Apple iPod or iPhone to expand your entertainment options beyond DVD and Blu-ray Disc media. Once connected, The Bridge III even charges your Apple device and works seamlessly with the AVR 3600s system remote control to navigate and play your favorite music and video tracks.

Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing

Faroudja DCDi Cinema processing dramatically reduces video artifacts from digital or analog signals. The result is fewer lines and a smoother picture especially when there is movement across your TV screen. Faroudja DCDi Cinema technology also upscales lower-resolution video to the 1080p high-definition standard, thereby extending the life of your movie library.

Multizone functionality

If you need only five playback channels for your surround-sound system instead of seven or you elect not to use the extra rear-surround outputs you can use the two additional amplifier channels to set up a second playback zone in the house. For added convenience, the AVR 3600 features a pair of I/O (input/output) connectors for a remote infrared (IR) receiver that can control volume and mute functions for playback within Zone 2, in addition to a separate A-BUS IR output.

Compressed music tools

A built-in MP3 enhancer dramatically improves bass performance when replaying compressed-audio tracks, thereby elevating the sound quality of your favorite songs without the need for additional audio equipment.

Multidevice, programmable/learning remote control

The AVR 3600 simplifies your life with a programmable infrared (IR) remote control. With its impressive, ergonomic design, the remote works seamlessly with the AVR 3600s 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.

Quadruple bass crossover manager

The AVR 3600 offers an advanced and versatile bass manager, allowing audiophiles to set the crossover to one of six specific frequencies for each of four different speaker groups. In addition, the receiver automatically sets a compatible low-pass frequency point (to the LFE output) to ensure that none of the low-frequency information is lost.

Harman/Kardon sound: A legacy of achievement

Exemplifying the balance among high style, modern design and audio ingenuity, the AVR 3600 fully embodies the spirit of Harman Kardon innovation, a legacy that discerning audio enthusiasts have revered for almost 60 years. Harman Kardon engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing products that are dedicated to quality, durability and, most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.
