Harman Kardon ships two BDS home theater systems

Harman Kardon just began offering two home theater in a box systems. The BDS 400 and BDS 800 combine a Blu-ray, DVD and CD player along with an FM tuner along with a speaker system. The former uses two front speakers and a subwoofer, while the latter adds two rear speakers and a center channel.

Either receiver sports an HDMI output, a USB port for playing multimedia files and a preprogrammed/learning remote control. There is also support for iPods and iPhones, though the necessary dock is optional. Compatible files include MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MP3, WMA and JPEG. ID3 tags will also be displayed on a connected TV.

Both are now available, with the BDS 400 priced at $999 and the BDS 800 at $1,499. The BDS 2 SO receiver from the BDS 400 system can be had on its own for $649, while the BDS 5 SO receiver from the BDS 800 system costs $799.
