Harman Kardon releases 3D compatibility

Harman Kardon is a company that thinks ahead and one of the greatest features we provide on our AVR receivers is the ability to upgrade them when new firmware and technologies become available. To accommodate the excitement of 3D Video, Harman Kardon is pleased to announce a two prong strategy to deliver compatibility with the latest advancement in consumer electronics.

  • Starting in September, all Harman Kardon AVR 2600 and AVR 3600 models will be shipping with 3D compatibility. This will allow full compatibility with all 3D formats from either Blu-ray players or satellite and cable services.

  • The AVR 7550HD will be updated through Harman Kardon Service Centers or via an advance replacement. Details coming soon.

  • For current owners of these models, regardless of the date of purchase, you may now update your existing AVR 2600 and AVR 3600 to 3D compatibility. This upgrade is now available at no charge.


    All you need to do is download the software to a USB memory stick, insert the stick drive into the front panel USB jack of your AVR, and with a few button presses on the remote control, the AVR will be upgraded. No direct connection between the computer and AVR is required or software “loader” is required, greatly simplifying the upgrade process.
