Harman Kardon AVR 20II Receiver

June 2, 2010

I purchased this receiver in 1998 in Canada and have been very happy with it. It rocks as a home theatre apmplifier, not only because of the excellent sound, but it also features a dimmable control panel and remote control interface that can be easily programmed into your universal remote control.

Here are some of the feature highlights and specifications:

  • 5.1 Surround Sound: Good quality home theatre quality surround sound. Surround sound processors: Hall, Dolby 3 Stereo, Dolby Pro-Logic Surround.
  • Tuning:Search, manual and presets.
  • Remote Control: Full control - power, tuning, input selection, volume, display dim, etc.
  • Connections:
    • AM and FM antennas
    • Phono input
    • TV/AUX
    • CD
    • Tape 1 Play
    • Tape 1 Rec
    • Tape 2 Monitor
    • Video/Audio VCR 1 input and output
    • Video/Audio VCR 2 input and output
    • Video Monitor
    • Remote Control Output
    • Multi-room Remote input
    • 1/2, Center and Rear Speaker Terminals
    • Subwoofer Ouput
    • 2 A/C Power Output Terminals

The build quality of the AVR 20II is reportedly better than some of the later models by Harman/Kardon.
