Harman Kardon AVR20II High-Fidelity AM/FM Stereo Receiver
from the manufacturer
Manufactured in Korea, this AVR-20 exemplifies what makes Harman Kardon stereo components so sought-after, not only for its warm phono & tape preamps, but also for its programmable wide-band AM/FM radio (with a bonus “FM mono” setting) and multi-speaker output. Its amazingly wide EQ capability with bass, treble, balance, and “loudness” modes provides an intoxicating yet natural response, with stunning highs and earth-shaking bass.
Designed to handle all the home audio needs of a quality entertainment system, the 5.1-channel audio receiver boasts surround sound processors of Hall, Dolby Pro-Logic Surround, and Dolby 3 Stereo. The amount of connection options is astounding, with TV/AUX, CD, phono, AM/FM, tape, direct subwoofer output, and more. It even comes with a multi-room input for more advanced systems, while remote control output allows for simpler monitoring. Two A/C power output terminals allow for further synchronization of your complete setup. The phono circuit was designed to allow use of an external preamp if desired, so please be sure to make your connections accordingly. Overall, this is a powerful and truly all-encompassing piece of equipment for audiophiles and aficionados alike.
Cosmetically, this receiver is nearly flawless. It measures roughly 17 1/2″ wide, 5 1/2″ tall (with feet), & 16″ deep (with knobs). Each knob turns smoothly and all functions work as they should, having been fully-serviced in-house to ensure that all aspects are working correctly. The original steel housing is in fantastic shape, with soft green, orange, and digital displays topping off its classic appeal. Debuting with an MSRP of close to $400.00, its beautifully simplistic design will provide the perfect foundation for upgrading your in-home stereo setup.
