Harman Kardon is a company that has been making some nice mid-range to high-end audio gear for a long time. The company has hardware that finds its way into some cars, home theater systems, and stereo systems. The company has unveiled a very nice looking little home audio system that is compact and easy to fit in a room, yet still provides big sound. The stereo system is called the MAS 102 and has many features in a small amount of space.
The MAS 102 is an integrated system with all features in one cabinet. It is capable of connecting to iPods and iPhones with an optional accessory. A CD player is integrated along with an FM tuner. The device has a front USB port and a rear USB port and has other audio inputs, including dual coaxial and dual optical inputs along with a single coaxial digital output.
The front panel has a photo input connector and the clock that is on the front panel has a sleep timer to turn the stereo off at a certain time. A headphone port also allows the user to listen in private. The speakers are matched for quality sound with MMD tweeters and integral waveguides. Harman Kardon promises that the device offers the sound of a full size system with less space.
