Five 65-watt-per-channel amplifiers

The Harman Kardon BDS580 5.1 Blu-ray System delivers 65 watts per channel to power your choice of 5-channel speaker system. Connect to a powered subwoofer for enhanced low-frequency performance and added theatrical presence.

The net result is a great-sounding system that’s also environmentally-friendly.

The BDS580 streams audio from virtually any portable device. For computers with iTunes, Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices – stream your entertainment using the system’s built-in AirPlay technology.
