Harman Kardon DVD-47


Those of you who have a high definition TV and a huge DVD collection will appreciate Harman Kardon's DVD-47, which uses upscaling technology to make D...

Great upscaling performance

Remote control feels cheap and nasty

Harman/Kardon's DVD-47 is a great device for watching DVDs on a high definition TV.

Harman Kardon DVD-47


Harman Kardon's latest disc spinner is a DVD Video player, and it plays CDs using a dedicated stereo output, optionally with the video turned off. But it is also a universal player, which plays stereo and multichannel DVD-Audio and SACD discs.


CD playback

May suit some people, but there's better out there

For the price, I expected flawless performance


Multi-channel output; good picture; good audio. Overall excellent except

Not dual voltage (the reason I bought it); skips randomly on any disk, new/old, DVD-A, DVD, or CD. Have to change resolution everytime you turn it on if you want it to be anything other than the highest resolution of your monitor (1080i on my monitor)

Looks very aerodynamic" - says fiance


This is a great choice for a solid entry level SACD/ DVD-audio/ DVD player. If you are not ready to shell out 5-bills for a Marantz, this is a great choice

Very low profile. NICE picture and sound quality. MANY features. Easy to use and read onscreen menu's. Nice remote. Chicks dig it

System would "lockup" when I first got it, and I would have to turn it off and on again to be able to enter menu's again. But have had NO PROBLEMS since that first day.. maybe just a bug

Great Receiver


Bought this to replace my old hk avr140 receiver and definitely worth it. Great sound, easy to set up and super lightweight. Don't be fooled when people say heavier is better. The sound is great and the receiver is a great addition to our 3D tv.

Product Specifications

The DVD 47 is Harman Kardon's most advanced DVD player, delivering performance that satisfies audiophiles and videophiles alike. On the video side, advanced processing upscales the signal to 720p or 1080i via an HDMI output, along with the ability to view both JPEG and Kodak Picture CD images. Critical listeners will revel in the fidelity of both DVD-Audio and SACD, in addition to MP3 and WMA playback of compressed music formats. Sound and image, in any combination, all at the best possible resolution. That's the DVD 47.
