Harman Ships New Products from Mark Levinson, Revel and JBL

December 22, 2013
Harman’s Luxury Audio Group is now shipping the Mark Levinson No 52 Reference Dual-Monaural Preamplifier, Revel Performa3 loudspeakers, JBL Synthesis SDP-45 Surround Processor and Project Everest DD67000 flagship loudspeaker.

“2013 was a great year for Harman Luxury Audio Group as we are shipping many highly anticipated products that have been met with strong enthusiasm by dealers, customers and critics alike,” said Jim Garrett, director of marketing and product management, Harman Luxury Audio Group and Loudspeakers. “The new products reflect our commitment to providing our customers and dealers with ultimate-performance components and loudspeakers that advance the capabilities of music and home theater audio reproduction and are designed and built to the highest standards.”

The Mark Levinson No 52 is an all-analog, true dual-monaural design with a two-chassis configuration that separates the critical analog audio circuitry from the control section to maintain the purest signal path possible. It provides a comprehensive complement of balanced and single-ended inputs and outputs, including a dedicated phono input.

The Revel Performa3 Series of home theater and stereo loudspeakers and subwoofers incorporates the company’s latest advancements in materials and manufacturing technologies for movie soundtrack and music reproduction. The nine speakers in the Performa3 lineup feature proprietary aluminum-dome and cone drivers, a patent-pending Acoustic Lens Waveguide and other refinements to deliver exceptional sonic accuracy.

Introduced at CEDIA 2013, the JBL Synthesis SDP-45 Surround Sound Processor is an ultra-high-end home theater control center. Designed to be the heart of a JBL Synthesis custom-installation home theater system, the 7.1-channel SDP-45 offers a host of versatile features including eight HDMI inputs, compatibility with all popular surround sound formats, balanced and single-ended digital and analog connections, easy to use setup menus and much more.

The JBL Project Everest DD67000 incorporates a host of upgrades from the previous model to achieve an extraordinary new standard in speaker performance. The DD67000 features new woofers, a refined crossover network and additional improvements to convey music with remarkable fidelity and musical involvement.
