Harman/Kardon BDP 10

8 December 2009
  • Conclusion: The excellent BDP 10 Blu-ray player displays gorgeous movie pictures and offers BD-Live support. Still, it’ll have a hard job establishing itself among the ever-growing competition, since many cheaper players perform just as well and offer better features. Let’s put it this way: This player is one for the individualists — specifically those that don’t mind digging a little deeper into their pockets.
  • Pros: Excellent 24p movie picture., Automatic film-mode detection for DVDs., Bitstream HD-audio output., Picture-in-picture and BD-Live.
  • Cons: Weaknesses in de-interlacing., Faulty photo-playback., Relatively expensive.

A deluxe Harman Kardon Blu-ray player for serious videophiles

Good Gear Guide.au
11 February 2010

  • Pros: Excellent BD and DVD playback, onboard audio decoder, user-friendly interface
  • Cons: Sluggish load times, too expensive, light on extra features

Expert Review

2 January 2010
  • Excerpt: South African magazine Audio Video recently reviewed the BDP 10, Harman Kardon's first ever Blu-ray player, and the editor was not disappointed with the performance it delivered! "It’s taken Harman Kardon a while to release its first Blu-ray player. However, having spent the past six weeks or so in the company of the new BDP 10, it seems the wait’s been well worth it: this HK is a killer of a machine.

Harman Kardon BDP 10 Blu-ray player

TechRadar UK
21 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Harman Kardon's debut Blu-ray player, the BDP 10, appears to tick most of the boxes required for consideration – it's a full Profile 2.0 machine with BD-Live, DivX playback and 1080p upscaling, all wrapped in a sassy case in keeping with the über-cool HK house style.

Harman Kardon BDP10

2 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Esthétiquement, ce lecteur Blu-ray Harman Kardon respecte à la perfection le design des autres électroniques du constructeur (et notamment ses amplis A/V). Elégant et plutôt épuré, l'appareil ne fait pas dans la fantaisie. Ce n'est de toute façon pas la politique de la maison. Le problème, c'est qu'à 800 euros la bête, il faut avoir des choses à vendre en plus de la promesse d'une qualité impeccable d'image et de son HD .
  • Pros: Design élégant, simplicité d'utilisation, qualité de lecture correcte en HD, gestion du son, port USB compatible DivX, MP3, WMA et JPEG, bonne performances acoustiques.
  • Cons: Prix élevé, absence de paramètres d'égalisation vidéo, upscaling HD quelconque, bruit de fonctionnement.
