HARMAN Debuts New Home, Multimedia and Mobile Products 

02-September-2010 

STAMFORD, CT -- HARMAN, the leading premium audio and infotainment group (NYSE:HAR), today announced the launch of new products this fall across three divisions: Home Entertainment, Multimedia and Mobile/In-Car.

For music enthusiasts and home theater buffs, the harman kardon® division debuts new products, upgraded technologies and refreshed designs. The HD 990 high-performance CD player and HK 990 integrated amplifier offer extreme power and maximum precision. Separately or together, the duo delivers a world-class, immersive, two-channel audio experience for the sophisticated listener. In addition, the harman kardon line brings something innovative to the home theater market with the release of a new home loudspeaker system: The HKTS 60, designed with new flat-panel driver technology and a new waveguide-equipped tweeter, pumps out distortion-free sound for the ultimate realistic experience. And for 3-D television owners, harman kardon engineers have equipped the AVR 2600, AVR 3600 and AVR 7550HD receivers with 1.4a v 3-D upgrades, the most advanced receiver technology.

Also new to home entertainment systems: Movie buffs can look forward to the release of the new JBL® Studio 1 Series loudspeakers. Comprised of four unique speakers, the series boasts the new, distinctive JBL Weave design and legendary JBL sound quality. Sold separately (but voice-matched to work ideally together), the loudspeakers can be combined to personalize the ideal cinematic home theater or music experience while spicing up your living room with their stylish, modern look.

“In today’s fast-paced world, technology and style are evolving rapidly,” said Christopher M. Dragon, director of Consumer and Field Marketing, HARMAN International. “We understand that delivering products sustainable in both quality and design is essential. Whether it’s updating a fan favorite with a new look or delivering the latest best-in-class technology, we ensure all of our brands are cutting-edge.”

In multimedia, HARMAN’s JBL division is releasing two new additions to the JBL On Stage®* family for the music lover on the go. These iPhone®/iPod® docking stations feature powerful audio performance under the incredible, new Weave industrial design. The JBL On Stage Micro III dock packs a punch with dual Odyssey® transducers. And weighing in at just under a pound, it makes the perfect traveling companion. For a more muscular portable dock, the JBL On Stage IV system boasts two additional transducers. There are few rooms or outdoor spaces it can’t flood with pristine JBL sound. Both operate on AC or battery power.

JBL engineers also present new mobile products this fall, delivering enhanced in-car audio performance. Thanks to two new amplifiers, the MS-A1004 and MS-A5001, and a wireless bass control, the MS-WBC, factory-installed car stereos will never sound better. Both MS-A amplifiers are designed to improve your regular car stereo and feature digital signal processing for extremely precise control and easy setup. The MS-WBC works with MS amps to adjust crossover seamlessly, offering smooth sound and heart-pounding bass.
