Summary: The BDS 700 is priced at a market operating price of Rs. 59,990, which includes taxes. Though the BDS 700 Blu-ray home theatre system did well in the looks department, as a Blu-ray capable home theater system, the cost is way too high. We see decent features and these are a powerful set of speakers, but out of the box, they lacked the quality expected. Harman/Kardon is in a league of its own and will continue to flourish the way they have been all these years.
REVIEW: Harman Kardon BDS 700 5.1 Blu-ray Home Cinema combo
12 May 2011
Summary: If you’ve neither a Blu-ray player nor 5.1 system to accompany your HD TV, the BDS 700 kit isn’t a bad shout at all, providing you’ve got the dough. It looks and sounds great, with sharp HD images from Blu-ray discs too. However, buying a separate Blu-ray deck and 5.1 set up from other brands for the same combined value as the BDS-700 would open you up to far more fully-featured products. Convenient, but not necessarily good value for money then.
