Product information

The Harman Kardon BDS 477 home cinema system brings the best of 3D Blu-ray playback, Bluetooth streaming and Apple Airplay to serious audio power. Not only will it add a new dimension to movies, TV and games - it’ll even enrich your music thanks to voice matched satellite speakers.

The BDS 477 is also equipped with Dolby Digital and DTS audio decoding to pull every single detail from any source. The companion subwoofer adds even more depth to the experience with feedback that you’ll feel, as well as hear.

Key benefits:

  • Two amplifiers, rated at 65 watts per channel, power the system’s left and right loudspeakers, which feature dual voice-matched, flat-panel drivers and CMMD Lite dome tweeters for consistent sound from speaker to speaker.
  • The 200 watt, 8-inch (200-millimeter) powered subwoofer fires downward, interacting with the floor for enhanced bass response.
  • AirPlay compatibility lets you stream audio files from an Apple device to your loudspeakers and your TV. You can replay audio files from any compatible iPod, iPhone or iPad, and also control your Apple TV device using the unit’s remote control.
  • The USB connection and DLNA network player let you enjoy music, video and picture files from media services, NAS (Network Attached Storage), portable players or flash drives containing most types of recorded media, including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MP3, WMA and JPEG files.
