Price$ 499.00 (AUD)
The Harman/Kardon DVD37 is a high-end DVD player, designed to be used with similarly high-end audio and visual equipment. With its impressive range of video and audio connections, this is a player aimed squarely at advanced users, although its streamlined interface and great functionality make it a solid choice for anyone in need of a DVD player.
DVD playback worked well, and the DVD37 has all the features expected of high-end a DVD player. We tested the player using its HDMI, Component and Composite connections, and its quality was excellent. The HDMI port can output resolutions up to 720p and 1080i, delivering a sharp and clear image in these modes. In addition to HDMI, Component and Composite ports, the player also has S-Video.
Audio is one of the DVD37's real strengths though, with digital output being offered via coaxial, optical, and of course, HDMI connections. The player also has connections for 6-channel surround sound, and is compatible with major surround sound formats, including Dolby Digital and DTS. When connected to the Harman/Kardon HKTS7 speaker system via the Harman/Kardon AVR 645 receiver, we found the audio performance of the entire setup to be excellent, further highlighting how well this player works as one part of a fully-featured home entertainment setup.
Already a great choice for audiophiles, the DVD37 also provides support for the DVD-Audio MLP lossless format. It delivers excellent sound quality with impressive bass, due to the player's inbuilt bass management system.
The DVD37's design fits perfectly with its functionality - it's sleek and intuitive. A well laid-out, backlit remote control makes operating the player a breeze, and the simple menu system allows for quick and easy configuration of the player's settings. The back panel, which sports an absolute mountain of inputs and outputs, is closely packed without being cramped, while the front panel is slim and streamlined with an unobtrusive LED display.
The DVD37 is a great purchase due to its functionality and it worked very well in our tests. With excellent audio performance and a huge range of connections, the unit is perfectly suited to users looking for a high-end DVD player for their home entertainment setup. Although slightly expensive, discerning users will find it a welcome addition to their living room.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
