The Harmon Kardon CP-65 is a 5.1 channel DVD theater system comprised of an A/V receiver, DVD player, and loudspeaker system.  The included 7.1 channel AVR 347 receiver produces 385 watts of power (55 watts per channel) and features DCDI by Faroudja processing, HDMI 1.2a connectivity, video upscaling to 720p, and A-BUS multiroom capability.  The DVD 48 DVD player upscales DVDs to 1080p with Faroudja technology for clear playback and supports SACD, +/- DVD-R, CD-R/RW, MP3, WMA, VCD, and JPEG formats.  Harmon Kardon's HKTS 18 loudspeaker system includes 4 satellite speakers, a dual-midrange center channel speaker, and a 10" subwoofer with a built in 200 watt amplifier.  The CP-65 system comes with a universal remote control, microphone and all the required cables for installation.  The system is much more advanced than Harmon Kardon's CP-60 system with a higher-end DVD player, A/V receiver, and speaker system than the CP-60.
