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.

Multifunctional

CD playback

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

Consumer review by:

Sleek, aesthetically pleasing, and functionally smart.

 

151.77 from Etronics. I admit this is expensive item at MSRP but not at price I paid. Look for a deal on this nice, HK player.

Plays SACD and DVD Audio; reads my old MP3 discs great; Digital zoom

Display times out quickly. Sometimes I like to see the lit display for a while

Consumer review by:

Excellent Player that need to turn on HDMI digital audio!!!

 

I recently purchased the HK DVD-47 with the HK 445 AVR. Once I got the system setup. I could not get my surround sound to work properly. I thought all HDMI connections included digital sound, which was until I read my connection specification closer....

DVD picture quality is excellent

Lack of digital audio through HDMI connection

Consumer review by:

Good unit, but on the pricey side.

 

I've had this unit for only one week but so far have been fairly pleased with it. I did have a problem initially connecting it to my HK/AVR340 receiver as the factory default is S-video or HDMI output. The AVR340 doesn't have MDMI input and I'm ......

Very attractive, good sound output, connectivity options

Expensive, factory defaults not well documented

Sound is too good.

 

But the behavior and coordination of the unit with remote control and forward and backward functions are pathetic. A $70 unit performs remote functioning much better than this unit. Purchased it from J&R. Through their web site they say a new unit...

Picture quality is good too

Absolutely sucks when it comes to the remote control coordination

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.
