Harman Kardon has big plans for the future, including the launch of new A/V receivers with capabilities completely new to the company's lineup. It all starts with an upgrade for current receivers. This summer, Harman Kardon plans to release a new module that gives current generation receivers Apple AirPlay capabilities. This addition will allow you to play music from Wi-Fi capable Apple devices without any complicated network setup.
On the rest of the networking front, the company is playing a bit of catch up. They'll be introducing the ability to stream music from PCs and home networks, and will bring internet radio so more receivers instead of just the flagship. Video streaming will, for now, still be limited to iPhones and iPods connected via Harman Kardon's docking station.
