Beauty tames the beast
Harman Kardon’s AVR 630 is a 7 x 75W 7.1-Channel A/V receiver that proves beauty is much more than skin deep. It delivers pure sound with all the latest surround modes, including Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES, DTS 96/24, HDCD processing and HK’s own Logic 7 processing, in tandem with the firm’s high-current amplifier design. Managing the technology is a LCD remote with EzSet feature, easy-to-use setup menus with renameable inputs, and front-panel inputs that can be switched to outputs. All in a sleek design that’s the perfect match for the latest flat-screen displays. CZK 41,000.

The GR-HD1 also comes with an optical 10x zoom lens and built-in optical image stabilizer. CZK 72,000.
