  2. Data sheet

First of all, the new Harman introduces the HiFiisten who wants to short time connect a CD player, and “listen”, puzzles. Back to find only with “analog 1” up to “5” labeled stereo inputs and front no input selector. Then he presses without result on “Menu” and then it inevitably engages the manual. That tells him that calls these tipsters USB and Ethernet source and that he must set up CD via “AVR”. At this time, ran a monitor which shows the beautiful graphics of control should at the latest. And then there is a submenu test (while in the still silence every now and again, a fan is audible), whether the dynamic brake Dolby volume on all (!) “out” is available.

Also, now taste the Hi-Fi fan that instead of a single transformer teams as in the previous AVR 745 (2/07) now a multi channel codec is used. For this, a much higher computing power available, which is also the management of two separately adjustable subwoofer too good now is instruments with two aureus DSPs from Texas. Continue to the Harman not only pass through analog multi channel signals as the competition, he can give them also the complete digital Setup.

Faroudja/Genesis image processor (FLI 30336), 12-bit encoder (ADV 7340) for the Analog-Outs and the ability to scale also HDMI inputs to de-Interlaced, and fine to adjust in four positions: In the video section, the Harman are anyway no reason to complain.

Also at the sound of not: the radio sounds appeared already clean and solid, revealed during CD playback only quite a beautiful monumental character. He was unyielding, urschwarze bass and very physical, hugging sweet female voices. If however someone gruffly beat on drums pool, the 760 fire took out.

In the heights carefully Bumble and untenrum powerful rich: He acted also in surround as a likeable bear. But the new HD formats, he changed to the Panther: difficult and at the same time fine – now provided the AVR 760 for maximum enjoyment.
