BDS 485S is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tolle 485S Nach einer intensiven Testwoche o.g. Anlage bin ich begeistert. Handling sehr einfach, Sound hervorragend. Die 485S eignet sich ausgezeichnet für kleine und mittlere Räume (18 - 25 m²). Der Subwoofer macht einen satten und brummfreien Sound, die Satelliten spielen klar und kräftig. Alle Komponenten harmonieren auch bei geringer und Zimmerlautstärke sehr gut miteinander. Die Ausstattung des Receivers ist mehr als ausreichend. Die Optik der gesamten Anlage ist begeisternd. Aus meiner Sicht kann ich die 485S uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Ausgezeichnete Arbeit der Techniker und Entwickler von Harman/Kardon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Instabiel systeem, goed geluid Soms loopt het systeem vast. Geluid stoort indien via HDMI kabels wordt gewerkt. van KPNbox naar systeem (van KPNbox direct naar TV geeft goede kwaliteit). Idem in geval van Apple TV. De bediening is NIET intuitief. Ik kan het bedienen; vrouw en kinderen niet. reactie is veelal traag, waardoor je meerdere keren op een knop hebt gedrukt en de bediening niet correct is. De geluidskwaliteit is prima; gebruik alleen audio in vanuit de TV. Al met al een tegenvallende kwaliteit van een product in deze prijs klasse. Ik heb andere producten van Harman welke wel OK functioneren; besturing en stabiliteit van dit product is echter ver beneden de maat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tolles System mit vielen Abspielmöglichkeiten Ich habe das System vor 4 Wochen gekauft. Toller Klang und sehr flexibel, Spotify, WLAN und BT Konnektivität. Einzig die Internetradio (vTuner) Bedienung ist etwas umständlich, da man den TV einschalten muss, um die Favoritensender anzuwählen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Het beste wat er is De afgelopen weken geprobeerd om een opvolger te vinden voor mijn home cinemaset BDS 270. Andere merken geprobeerd (ook de nieuwste soundbars) maar met gierende banden terug naar Harman Kardon voor de BDS 485s. Eenvoudige aansluitingen, heel veel gebruiksmogelijkheden en een fantastisch geluid (vooral bij muziek kan niemand hier aan tippen) En tenslotte, erg goede service en de mogelijkheid om achteraf te betalen. En dan heb ik het nog niet eens over de zeer gunstige prijs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uitstekend Media Systeem Sinds 1 week in het bezit van de BDS485S, en bevalt uitstekend. Inderdaad zeer goed geluid en fraaie vormgeving. Wel jammer dat de Woofer niet via Bleutooth werkt, in sommige advertenties leek dat wel het geval. Ook wel jammer dat via Bleutooth niet een extra speakertje kan worden aangesloten zou makkelijk zijn om toch geluid, zoals spraak in een andere ruimte te hebben. Buiten deze persoonlijke wensen een uitstekende keuze en beveel het systeem zeer aan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doet na 1 dag niks Gisteren met veel goede moed geinstalleerd, na het niet werken van ARC al licht teleurgesteld maar wat opviel was na het uitzetten systeem niet meer aan ging zonder continue stroom eraf te halen en weer erop zetten. Nu doet systeem niks meer buiten "oranje" cirkel hetgeen slaapstand betekend doch wakker worden doet systeem niet meer ook niet na power compleet eraf. Erg teleurgesteld op dit moment

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Technisch gut, Klanglich leider nur Mittelmaß Habe die Anlage als "refurbished" für 699,- Euro gekauft, ein paarTage später war sie 50 Euro billiger. Hat mich erstmal geärgert, aber normal kostet sie nfast das doppelte. Beim auspackun und aufstellen der Anlage wr ich dann allerdings positiv überrascht. Alles war top und originalverpackt, von "refurbished" habe ich gar nichts bemerkt. Klanglich vermisse ich allerdings den Hochtonbereich

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zeer veel aansluitmogelijkheden. Een paar maanden geleden gekocht bij een lokale audio-winkel. Voor een redelijk extra bedrag boven de Internetprijs sloten ze alles voor mij aan, maakten kabeltjes en installeerden de software. Alles werkt prima en de geluidskwaliteit is zeer goed. Op mijn Smart-TV aangesloten via HDMI Arc, geen enkel probleem. We hadden de witte uitvoering gekozen die mooi staat in ons interieur.

Can you tell me why sometimes I get HVS and Stereo as sound options (usually on Sky Movies HD which is broadcast in Dolby Digital) and then watching BBC HD I also get Original? All channels are connected through Sky + HDMI cable

Asked by: Rbye
Hi. This could sound as if the surround signal received by the BDS is not in a format it recognizes. Try to look into the setup menus of your TV box to check if you can change the digital output format. Stereo and HVS are selected because the BDS senses stereo input, not surround. If this does not help, you can either test your TV box with another surround receiver, or contact Harman Helpdesk for real troubleshooting.
