Now the final, High End Receiver in this series is the Harman Kardon AVR 3650.


Lots of 3D-ready HDMI connectivity
The AVR-3650's HDMI inputs let you connect up to six high-definition sources for easy switching, like a Blu-ray player, gaming console, HD cable box, DVR and more. You'll enjoy the astonishing picture and sound detail of Blu-ray movies — thanks to built-in decoding for master-quality soundtrack formats. Analog-to-HDMI video conversion lets you hook up your older A/V sources to your TV via a single HDMI connection, reducing cable clutter.

Online, Home Network Connectivity
The AVR-3650's Ethernet port makes it easy for you to enjoy music files from your home computer, or to access a virtually limitless variety of free music via Internet radio stations streaming from around the world. You can also add a SIRIUS satellite tuner (requires SIRIUS subscription and optional home tuner kit). 

Your iPod/iPhone Compatible
The iPod is a great way to take your favorite music and videos anywhere; but it's can also be enjoyed on your best speakers. The AVR-3650 makes it easy when you add the optional Harman Kardon Bridge IIIP iPod dock. It connects with a single cable and lets you navigate your music and video libraries on-screen using the receiver's remote. Browse your iPod the way you usually do, whether by artist, album or genre. Videos are automatically upconverted to HD, as high as 1080p, to match your TV's resolution.
Custom tailored sound made easy
Conquering the acoustic challenges of your room is a huge part of getting accurate sound. Harman Kardon's EZSet/EQ uses the included microphone to analyze sound within your room, then automatically adjusts volume level, equalization, and delay settings for each speaker. You'll get clear, accurate, natural sound that's beautifully balanced for your space.
