AVR 5500
Allow us to use superlatives. By every measure of excellence, the Harman Kardon AVR 5500 commands them. It’s extremely
powerful, with a 5 x 75-watt, high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design. It’s supremely capable, with Dolby Digital,
DTS-ES Extended Surround, Dolby Pro Logic* II and HDCD® decoding, as well as Logic 7
and VMAx
virtual surround 
sound processing, and MP3 playback from compatible computer-based audio sources. It’s elegantly intuitive, with on-screen
menus and our exclusive EzSet™ remote, which automatically sets the system’s output levels, as well as offering 
programmable or learning control of up to eight system components. And it’s ingeniously versatile, with component 
video switching and multiroom/multisource audio capability. The AVR 5500 provides superior performance for serious 
digital entertainment at home.
