From the slot-loaded CD player to the USB ports, the MAS 102 can read practically any music source you throw its way. It’ll even connect to your record player if you need it to, one of the many talents you can expect from this 2 x 65-watt amplifier with custom 5-inch (130mm) bass-reflex speakers and 1-inch (25mm) dome tweeters.
Plays your iPod or iPhone device using The Bridge III (available separately).
Gain access to all your favorite music when you hook your iPod or iPhone up to a Harman Kardon® The Bridge III docking station (available for purchase separately). Sync up the MAS 102 to the portable dock and play your stored music through the superb sound system, giving your music tracks the high-performance soundstage they deserve. Hear every note purely and without limitations caused by headphones – and even control your music from a distance, using the system’s IR remote control to navigate video and music while your iPod or iPhone is docked. The Harman Kardon The Bridge III will even charge your iPod or iPhone device while it’s docked in the MAS 102 – or, if you prefer, play Internet radio through an optional iPod Internet-radio application.
Built-in CD player and FM tuner.
Gain an unprecedented range of functionality and versatility with the MAS 102. Play your MP3 and WMA CD-R and CD-RW discs (as well as standard CDs) with random-play and repeat options. You can even listen to the radio with the built-in, drift-free FM tuner that comes conveniently preset with 30 stations – so you can hear music, news, sports and talk without having to set all the stations yourself. If you want to get beyond CD or radio, the MAS 102 can happily oblige. Just plug into one of the system’s USB ports to play your smartphone, memory stick, MP3 player or any other compatible device.
Plug into USB ports – in front or in back.
The MAS 102 is built to support your iPod and/or iPhone device using a Harman Kardon® The Bridge III dock (available separately). However, since the MAS 102 also includes front- and back-panel USB ports, you can expand upon the system’s capabilities by playing MP3 and WMA files directly from memory sticks. You can even navigate these files using your system’s IR remote control. By taking advantage of the built-in USB ports, you can amplify virtually any device containing your music collection – and enjoy the full talents of your music system.
Matching loudspeaker technology.
High-performance sound demands high-performance technology. That’s why the MAS 102 music system integrates a two-way configuration featuring flat-panel bass drivers and proprietary MMD® tweeters with integral waveguides. TheMAS 102 system also eliminates unwanted sonic refractions for cleaner, more natural sound and greatly improves off-axis performance for more accurate stereo imaging and high-frequency performance. Ultimately, you’ll get full-size speaker performance from two sophisticated, compact speakers – without sacrificing any of the signature Harman Kardon® good looks along the way.
Striking industrial design.
Want a music system that looks almost as good as it sounds? With a striking industrial design that complements your home décor without overwhelming it, the MAS 102 fuses together many modern design elements, presenting a high-gloss, polished, black exterior evocative of an architectural gem. One element that makes the MAS 102 especially inviting to use is the sophisticated VFD screen with its bright, easy-to-read navigation menus communicating system status as well as artist information, track numbers and volume levels.
Take control with the IR remote
The MAS 102 system puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to controlling both your system’s functions and the iPod/iPhone you might be playing via a Harman Kardon® The Bridge III docking station (available separately). Sit back, relax and enjoy your music from up to 15 feet (4.6 meters) away, while you navigate the MAS 102 using the IR remote and its easy-to-use interface. This long-range feature gives you the benefit of control from afar – allowing you to flip through tracks while staying seated on the couch or comfortably immersed in your cocktail-party conversation.
Achieve maximum connectivity.
Built with two coaxial and two optical digital inputs plus one coaxial digital input, the MAS 102 has digital audio connectors that keep you listening – no matter what digital technology may enter the market. This way, as new technologies emerge, your MAS 102 system can stay relevant and compatible, providing maximum flexibility and optimal connectivity. As a bonus, these digital connectors also help you eliminate conversion stages, ensuring the best sound quality possible – at all times.
Analog audio input connections.
If you want to connect additional audio components, the MAS 102 includes two stereo RCA inputs plus one stereo 1/8-inch (3.5mm) input that is ideal for computers and portable media players. By using this great flexibility to connect with other components, you’ll be able to access more of your music collection – no matter what format it’s in.
Get your groove back.
Fall in love with your record collection all over again by utilizing the MAS 102 system’s high-quality phono input. Join the resurgence of vinyl lovers while taking advantage of a premier high-performance music system – or use the phono input to connect to turntables with MM (moving magnet) phono cartridges. This versatile feature gives you a great reason to dust off those old 45s or LPs for that ’80s revival party you might soon consider hosting.
Built-in clock with a sleep timer and dual alarms.
A great music system has the power to stir up the soul. The MAS 102 can do that – and also wake up two people in the morning at different times thanks to its built-in clock with dual alarms. You can even select which alarm sound or song to wake up to. (Or, if you prefer, use the built-in default alarm tone.) And if falling asleep to music is your thing, you can benefit from the MAS 102 sleep timer – which eases you into REM sleep while saving energy by automatically shutting the system off after a predetermined time.
Gold-plated binding posts for great sound.
Quality of sound is of the utmost importance when it comes to speaker connectors. That’s why the MAS 102 keeps your connections to the outside world as secure as they should be by using gold-plated binding posts. As an important ingredient to maintaining audio integrity every step of the way, these posts allow you to connect to a variety of speaker wires, helping you achieve a great degree of flexibility and compatibility with a wide range of audio products.
Private listening via headphone jack.
Thanks to a powerful 65 watts per channel, the MAS 102 can rock the house with a clean and powerful sound worthy of any house party. But what if you want to have a more intimate, private listening experience? Then you’ll want to use theMAS 102 headphone jack, which automatically mutes the speakers when you plug the headphones in – allowing for one-on-one listening without ever sacrificing sound quality.
