Introduction
Thank you for choosing Harman Kardon!
With the purchase of a Harman Kardon
AVR 320 you are about to begin many years of
listening enjoyment. Designed to provide all the
excitement and detail of movie soundtracks and
every nuance of musical selections, the AVR 320
is truly a multichannel receiver for the new millenium.
The AVR 320 has been engineered so that it is
easy to take advantage of all the power of its
digital technology. On-screen menus, fully color
coded connection jacks and terminals and our
exclusive EzSet™ remote make installation fast
and simple. However, to obtain the maximum
enjoyment from your new receiver, we urge you
to read this manual. A few minutes spent
learning the functions of the various controls
will enable you to take advantage of all the
power the AVR 320 is able to deliver.
If you have any questions about this product,
its installation or its operation, please contact
your retailer or custom installer. They are your
best local sources of information.
Description and Features
The AVR 320 is among the most versatile and
multifeatured A/V receivers available, incorporating a wide range of listening options. In
addition to Dolby Digital and DTS decoding for
digital sources, a broad choice of Matrix surround-encoded or Stereo surround modes are
available for use with sources such as CD, VCR,
TV broadcasts and the AVR 320’s own FM/AM
tuner. Along with Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS Neo:6,
Dolby 3 Stereo, and Hall and Theater modes,
the AVR 320 offers Harman International’s
exclusive Logic 7 process in both 5.1 and 7.1
versions to create a wider, more enveloping
field environment and more defined fly-overs
and pans. Another Harman Kardon exclusive is
VMAx, which uses proprietary processing to
create an open, spacious sound field even
when only two front speakers are available.
Finally, the AVR 320 is among the very few A/V
receivers that offer decoding of MP3 data, so
that you may listen to the latest music selections directly from compatible computers or
playback devices with the power and fidelity
you expect from Harman Kardon.
In addition to providing a wide range of listening options, the AVR 320 is easy to configure so
that it provides the best results with your
speakers and specific listening-room environment. On-screen menus make it simple to enter
settings for speaker configurations and bass
management, and the EzSet remote measures
a system’s sound levels and automatically calibrates them for perfectly balanced sound field
presentation.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the AVR 320 features connections for six video devices, all with
both composite and S-Video inputs. Two additional audio inputs are available, and a total of
six digital inputs make the AVR 320 capable of
handling all the latest digital audio sources.
For compatibility with the latest HDTV video
sources and progressive scan DVD players, the
AVR 320 also features wide-bandwidth, lowcrosstalk component video switching.
Coax and optical digital outputs are available
for direct connection to digital recorders, and
the front panel coaxial digital jacks may be
switched to outputs for use with portable
recorders – a Harman Kardon exclusive. Two
video recording outputs, preamp-out jacks, and
a color-coded eight-channel input make the
AVR 320 virtually future-proof, with everything
needed to accommodate tomorrow’s new
formats right on board.
The AVR 320’s flexibility and power extend
beyond your main home theater or listening
room. The AVR 320 includes a sophisticated
multizone control system that allows you to
select one source for use in the main room and
a different one in a second room. Complete
control over volume is possible with a separate
infrared control link. To make it easy to operate
the AVR 320 from a remote room, a separate
“Zone II” remote is included.
The AVR 320’s powerful amplifier uses
traditional Harman Kardon high-current design
technologies to meet the wide dynamic range
of any program selection.
Harman Kardon invented the high-fidelity
receiver more than forty-seven years ago. With
state-of-the-art circuitry and time-honored circuit
designs, the AVR 320 is the perfect combination
of the latest in digital audio technology, a quiet
yet powerful analog amplifier in an elegant,
easy-to-use package.

The carton and shipping materials used to protect your new receiver during shipment were
specially designed to cushion it from shock and
vibration. We suggest that you save the carton
and packing materials for use in shipping if you
move, or should the unit ever need repair.
To minimize the size of the carton in storage,
you may wish to flatten it. This is done by carefully slitting the tape seams on the bottom and
collapsing the carton. Other cardboard inserts
may be stored in the same manner. Packing
materials that cannot be collapsed should be
saved along with the carton in a plastic bag.
If you do not wish to save the packaging materials, please note that the carton and other sections of the shipping protection are recyclable.
Please respect the environment and discard
those materials at a local recycling center.
At this time you should remove the protective
plastic film from the front-panel lens. Leaving
the film in place may affect the performance of
your remote control.

with the unit as shown below. Connect it to the
AM and GND Screw Terminals ¡ .
6. Connect the supplied FM antenna to the FM
(75-ohm) Connection ™. The FM antenna
may be an external roof antenna, an inside
powered or wire-lead antenna or a connection
from a cable TV system. Note that if the antenna or connection uses 300-ohm twin-lead
cable, you must use the 300-ohm-to-75-ohm
16 INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
To ensure that all the audio signals are carried
to your speakers without loss of clarity or resolution, we suggest that you use high-quality
speaker cable. Many brands of cable are available and the choice of cable may be influenced
by the distance between your speakers and the
receiver, the type of speakers you use, personal
preferences and other factors. Your dealer or
installer is a valuable resource to consult in
selecting the proper cable.
Regardless of the brand of cable selected, we
recommend that you use a cable constructed of
multistrand copper with a gauge of 14 or smaller.
Remember that in specifying cable, the lower
the number, the thicker the cable.
Cable with a gauge of 16 may be used for short
runs of less than ten feet. We do not recommend that you use cables with an AWG equivalent of 18 or higher, due to the power loss and
degradation in performance that will occur.
Cables that are run inside walls should have the
appropriate markings to indicate listing with UL,
CSA or other appropriate testing agency standards. Questions about running cables inside
walls should be referred to your installer or a
licensed electrician who is familiar with the NEC
and/or the applicable local building codes in
your area.
When connecting wires to the speakers, be certain to observe proper polarity. Note that the
positive (+) terminal of each speaker connection
now carries a specific color code as noted on
page 11. However, most speakers will still use a
red terminal for the postive (+) connection.
Connect the “negative” or “black” wire to the
same terminal on both the receiver and the
speaker.
NOTE: While most speaker manufacturers
adhere to an industry convention of using black
terminals for negative and red ones for positive,
some manufacturers may vary from this configuration. To ensure proper phase and optimal
performance, consult the identification plate on
your speaker or the speaker’s manual to verify
polarity. If you do not know the polarity of your
speaker, ask your dealer for advice before proceeding, or consult the speaker’s manufacturer.
We also recommend that the length of cable
used to connect speaker pairs be identical. For
example, use the same length piece of cable
to connect the front-left and front-right or
surround-left and surround-right speakers,
even if the speakers are a different distance
from the AVR 320.
8. Connections to a subwoofer are normally
made via a line-level audio connection from the
Subwoofer Output ∞ to the line-level input
of a subwoofer with a built-in amplifier. When a
passive subwoofer is used, the connection first
goes to a power amplifier, which will be connected to one or more subwoofer speakers. If
you are using a powered subwoofer that does
not have line-level input connections, follow the
instructions furnished with the speaker for connection information.
9. If an external multi-channel audio source
with 5.1 outputs such as an external digital
processor/decoder, DVD-Audio or SACD player
is used, connect the outputs of that device to
the 6-Channel Direct Inputs ª.
10. If an external multi-channel audio source
with 7.1 outputs such as an external digital
processor/decoder, DVD-Audio or SACD player
is used, first connect the outputs of that device
to both the 6 Channel Direct Inputs as noted
above, and then connect the Surround Back Left
and Surround Back Right output channels of
the source device to the 8-Channel Direct
Inputs ‚.
11. If a 7.1 channel source device is connected
as noted in the item above, you must use an
optional audio power amplifier for those channels. Connect the SBL and SBR Preamp
Outputs 38 to the inputs of the amplifier
feeding those channels' speakers.
Video Equipment Connections
Video equipment is connected in the same manner as audio components. Again, the use of highquality interconnect cables is recommended to
preserve signal quality.
1. Connect a VCR’s or other video source’s
audio and video Play/Out jacks to the Video 1
or Video 2 In Jacks hk 34 36 on the rear
panel. The Audio and Video Record/In jacks on
the VCR should be connected to the Video 1
or Video 2 Out Jacks gi 33 37 on the
AVR 320.
2. Connect the analog audio and video outputs
of a satellite receiver, cable TV converter or
Installation and Connections
television set or any other video source to the
Video 3 j 35 jacks.
3. Connect the analog audio and video outputs of a DVD or laser disc player to the DVD
Jacks §‹.
4. Connect the digital audio outputs of a DVD
player, satellite receiver, cable box or HDTV converter to the appropriate Optical or Coaxial
Digital Inputs 31 32 *Ó.
5. Connect the Video Monitor Output ¤
jacks on the receiver to the composite or SVideo input of your television monitor or video
projector.
6. If your DVD player and monitor both have
component video connections, connect the
component outputs of the DVD player to the
DVD Component Video Inputs c. Note
that even when component video connections
are used, the audio connections should still be
made to either the analog DVD Audio Inputs
§ or any of the Optical or Coaxial Digital
Input Jacks 31 32 *Ó.
7. If another component video device is available, connect it to the Video 2 Component
Video Input Jacks a. The audio connections
for this device should be made to either the
Video 2 Audio Input Jacks 34 or any of the
Optical or Coaxial Digital Input Jacks 31
32 *Ó.
8. If the component video inputs are used, connect the Component Video Output b to
the component video inputs of your TV, projector or display device.
9. If you have a camcorder, video game or other
audio/video device that is connected to the AVR
on a temporary, rather than permanent basis,
connect the audio, video and digital audio outputs of that device the Front Panel Inputs
*ÓÔ. A device connected here is selected
as the Video 4 input, and the digital inputs
must be assigned to the Video 4 input. (See
page 20 for more information on input configuration.)
Video Connection Notes:
• When the component video jacks are used,
the on-screen menus are not visible and you
must switch to the standard composite or SVideo input on your TV to view them.
• The AVR 320 will accept either standard
composite, S-Video or Y/Pr/Pb component
video signals. However, it will not convert
composite or S signals to component video.
• Component or composite video signals may
only be viewed in their native formats.
System and Power Connections
The AVR 320 is designed for flexible use with
multiroom systems.
Main Room Remote Control Extension
If the receiver is placed behind a solid or
smoked glass cabinet door, the obstruction may
prevent the remote sensor from receiving commands. In this event, an optional remote sensor
may be used. Connect the output of the remote
sensor to the Remote IR Input Jack e.
If other components are also prevented from
receiving remote commands, only one sensor is
needed. Simply use this unit’s sensor or a
remote eye by running a connection from the
Remote IR Output Jack d to the Remote IR
Input jack on Harman Kardon or other compatible equipment.
Multiroom IR Link
The remote room IR receiver should be connected
to the AVR 320 via standard coaxial cable. Plug
the IR connection cable into the Multiroom IR
Input Jack f on the AVR 320’s rear panel.
If other Harman Kardon compatible source
equipment is part of the main room installation,
the Remote IR Output Jack d on the rear
panel should be connected to the IR IN jack on
source equipment. This will enable the remote
room location to control source equipment functions.
NOTE: All remotely controlled components
must be linked together in a “daisy chain”.
Connect the IR OUT jack of one unit to the IR
IN of the next to establish this chain.
Option 2: Connect the Multiroom Output
Jacks • on the AVR 320 to the inputs of an
optional stereo power amplifier. Run high-quality speaker wire from the amplifier to the speakers in the remote room.
NOTE: In both options, you may connect an
optional IR sensor in the remote room to the
AVR 320 via an appropriate cable. Connect the
sensor’s cable to the Multiroom IR Input f
on the AVR 320 and use the Zone II remote to
control the room volume. Alternatively, you may
install an optional volume control between the
output of the amplifiers and the speakers.
AC Power Connections
This unit is equipped with two accessory AC
outlets. They may be used to power accessory
devices, but they should not be used with highcurrent draw equipment such as power amplifiers. The total power draw to each outlet may
not exceed 100 watts.
The Switched AC Accessory Outlet ‡ will
receive power only when the unit is on. This is
recommended for devices that have no power
switch or a mechanical power switch that may
be left in the “ON” position.
NOTE: Many audio and video products go into
a Standby mode when they are used with
switched outlets, and cannot be fully turned on
using the outlet alone without a remote control
command.
The Unswitched AC Accessory Outlet °
will receive power as long as the unit is
plugged into a powered AC outlet.
Finally, when all connections are complete, plug
the power cord into a nonswitched 110-volt AC
wall outlet. You’re almost ready to enjoy the
AVR 320!
Multiroom Audio Connections
Depending on the distance from the AVR 320
to the remote room, two options are available
for audio connection:
Option 1: Use high-quality, shielded audio
interconnect cable from the AVR 320’s location
to the remote room. In the remote room, connect the interconnect cable to a stereo power
amplifier. The amplifier will be connected to the
room’s speakers. At the AVR 320, plug the
audio interconnect cables into the Multiroom
Output Jacks • on the AVR 320’s rear panel.
17 INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
System Configuration
Speaker Selection and Placement
The placement of speakers in a multichannel
home-theater system can have a noticeable
impact on the quality of sound reproduced.
No matter which type or brand of speakers is
used, the same model or brand of speaker
should be used for the left front, center and
right front speakers. This creates a seamless
front soundstage and eliminates the possibility
of distracting sonic disturbances that occur
when a sound moves across mismatched
front-channel speakers.
Speaker Placement
Depending on the type of center-channel speaker
in use and your viewing device, place the center
speaker either directly above or below your TV,
or in the center behind a perforated front projection screen.
Once the center channel speaker is installed,
position the front left and front right speakers
so that they are as far away from one another
as the center-channel speaker is from the preferred listening position. Ideally, the front-channel
speakers should be placed so that their tweeters
are no more than 24" above or below the
tweeter in the center-channel speaker.
Depending on the specifics of your room
acoustics and the type of speakers in use, you
may find that imaging is improved by moving
the left front and right front speakers slightly
forward of the center-channel speaker. If possible, adjust all front loudspeakers so that they
are aimed at ear height when you are seated
in the listening position.
Using these guidelines, you’ll find that it takes
some experimentation to find the correct location for the front speakers in your particular
installation. Don’t be afraid to move things
around until the system sounds correct. Optimize
your speakers so that audio transitions across
the front of the room sound smooth, and that
sounds from all speakers appear to arrive at the
listening position at the same time (without
delay from the center speaker compared to the
left and right speakers).

When all audio, video and system connections
have been made, there are a few configuration
adjustments that must be made. A few minutes
spent to correctly configure and calibrate the
unit will greatly add to your listening experience.
Optional Rear-Wall Mounting
B) Rear speaker mounting is an alternate
location for 5.1 systems. It is required
for 7.1 operation.
At least 6 inches from ceiling
At least 2 feet
When the AVR 320 is used in 5.1-channel operation, the preferred location for surround
speakers is on the side walls of the room, at or
slightly behind the listening position. In a 7.1channel system, both side surround and back
surround speakers are required. The center of
the speaker should face into the room. The
speakers should be located so that the bottom
of the cabinet is at least two feet higher than
the listeners’ ears when the listeners are seated
in the desired area.
Rear surround speakers are required when a
full 7.1-channel system is installed, and they
may also be used in 5.1 channel as an alternative mounting position when it is not practical
to place the main surround speakers on the
sides of the room. Speakers may be placed on a
rear wall, behind the listening position. As with
the side speakers, rear surrounds should be
located so that the bottom of the cabinet is at
least two feet higher than the listeners’ ears.
The speakers should be no more than six feet
behind the rear of the seating area.
Subwoofers produce nondirectional sound, so
they may be placed almost anywhere in a
room. Actual placement should be based on
room size and shape and the type of subwoofer
used. One method of finding the optimal location for a subwoofer is to begin by placing it in
the front of the room, about six inches from a
wall, or near the front corner of the room.
Another method is to temporarily place the
subwoofer at your normal listening position,
and then walk around the room until you find
a spot where the subwoofer sounds best. Place
the subwoofer in that spot. You should also
follow the instructions of the subwoofer’s manufacturer, or you may wish to experiment with
the best location for a subwoofer in your listening room.
System Configuration
System Setup
Once the speakers have been placed in the
room and connected, the remaining steps
in the setup process are to program the
AVR 320’s bass management system for the
type of speakers used in your system, calibrate
the output levels, and set the delay times used
by the surround-sound processor.
You are now ready to power up the AVR 320
to begin these final adjustments.
1. Plug the AC Power Cord · into an
unswitched AC outlet.
2. Press the Main Power Switch 1 in
until it latches and the word “OFF” on the
top of the switch disappears inside the
front panel. Note that the Power
Indicator 3 will turn amber, indicating
that the unit is in the Standby mode.
3. Remove the protective plastic film from the
front-panel lens. If left in place, the film
may affect the performance of your remote
control.
4. Install the three supplied AAA batteries in
the remote as shown. Be certain to follow
the (+) and (–) polarity indicators that are
on the top of the battery compartment.

TIME OUT.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When viewing the onscreen menus using a CRT-based projector,
plasma display or any direct-view CRT monitor or
television, it is important that they not be left on
the screen for an extended period of time. The
constant display of a static image such as these
menus or video game images may cause the
image to be permanently “burned into” the projection tubes, plasma screen or CRT. This type of
damage is not covered by the AVR 320 warranty
and may not be covered by the projector/TV set’s
warranty.
Note that when the full OSD system is in use,
the menu selections are not shown in the
Main Information Display ˜Y. When the
full OSD menu system is used, OSD ON will
appear in the Main Information Display Y
and the OSD Indicator P will light to remind
you that a video display must be used. When
the semi-OSD system is used in conjunction
with the discrete configuration buttons, the onscreen display will show a single line of text
with the current menu selection. That selection
will also be shown in the Main Information
Display Y.
The AVR 320 has two on-screen display modes,
“Semi-OSD” and “Full-OSD.” When making
configuration adjustments, it is recommended
that the Full-OSD mode be used. This will place
an option listing on the screen, making it easier
to view the available options.
Making Configuration Adjustments
The full-OSD system is available by pressing the
OSD Button v. When this button is
pressed, the MASTER menu (Figure 1) will
appear, and adjustments are made from the
individual menus.

5. Turn the AVR 320 on either by pressing the
System Power Control 2 on the front
panel, or via the remote by pressing the
Power On Button d, the AVR
Selector f or any of the Input
Selectors eg on the remote. The
Power Indicator 3 will turn green to
confirm that the unit is on, and the Main
Information Display ˜ will also light.
Using the On-Screen Display
When making the following adjustments, you
may find it easier to use the AVR 320’s onscreen display system. These easy-to-read displays give you a clear picture of the current
status of the unit and make it easy to see
which speaker, delay, input or digital selection
you are making.
To view the on-screen menus, make certain you
have made a connection from the Video
Monitor Out Jack ¤ on the rear panel to
the composite or S-Video input of your TV or
projector. In order to view the AVR 320’s displays, the correct video source must be selected

Setting the System Configuration
Memory
The AVR 320 features an advanced memory
system that enables you to establish different
configurations for the speaker configuration,
digital input, surround mode, delay times,
crossover frequency and output levels for each
input source. This flexibility enables you to
custom-tailor the way in which you listen to
each source and have the AVR 320 memorize
those settings. This means, for example, that
you may use different output levels or trims for
different sources, or set different speaker configurations with the resultant changes to the
bass management system. Once these settings
are made, they will automatically be recalled
whenever you select that input.
The factory default settings for the AVR 320
have all inputs except for DVD configured for
an analog audio input except for the DVD
input, where the Digital Coaxial 1 Input
32 is the default. The default speaker settings
are for “Large” speakers at the front left/right,
“Small” at all other positions, and for the
Subwoofer set as being on. However, once the
DSP processing system is used for the first time
for any input, the speaker settings will automatically default to “Small” at all positions
with the subwoofer set to “LFE.” The default
setting for the surround modes is “Surround
Off,” or two-channel stereo, although Dolby
Digital or DTS will automatically be selected as
appropriate when a source with digital encoding is in use.
Before using the unit, you will probably want
to change the settings for most inputs so that
they are properly configured to reflect the use
of digital or analog inputs, the type of speakers
installed and the surround mode specifics of
your home theater system. Remember that
19 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
System Configuration
since the AVR 320 memorizes the settings for
each input individually, you will need to make
these adjustments for each input used.
However, once they are made, further adjustment is only required when system components
are changed.
To make this process as quick and as easy as
possible, we suggest that you use the full-OSD
system with the on-screen menus, and step
through each input. Once you have completed
the settings for the first input, many settings
may be duplicated for the remaining inputs. It is
also a good idea to set the configuration data
in the order these items are listed in the
MASTER menu, as some settings require a
specific entry in a prior menu item. Remember
that once the settings are made for one input,
they must be made for all other input sources
in your system.
Input Setup
The first step in configuring the AVR 320 is to
configure each input. When using the full-OSD
system to make the setup adjustments, press
the OSD Button v once so that the MASTER menu (Figure 1) appears. Note that the
› cursor will be next to the IN/OUT
SETUP line. Press the Set Button p to
enter the menu and the IN/OUT SETUP
menu (Figure 2) will appear on the screen.
Press the ‹/› Buttons o 37 until the
desired input name appears in the highlighted
video, as well as being indicated in the front
panel Input Indicators ˆ by the green LED
next to the desired input name. If the input will
use the standard left/right analog inputs, no
further adjustment is needed.

assignment.
An exclusive Harman Kardon feature is the
ability to switch the front panel coaxial digital
audio jack from its normal use as an input
to an output connection so that portable
recording devices may easily be connected.
On the AVR 320, the Digital Coax 3 Jack Ó
is normally an input, but this may also be
switched to a digital output for use with
CD-R/RW decks, MD recorders or other A/V
recorders. To change the jack to an output,
press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n while the
IN/OUT SETUP menu is on the screen
until the › cursor is next to COAXIAL 3.
Then press the ‹/› Buttons o 37 so that
the word OUT is highlighted. Note that the
Input/Output Status Indicator ( will turn
red, indicating that the jack is now a record
output.
NOTE: A signal will be sent to this jack only
when the input selected for use by the AVR 320
is digital. Digital signals will be passed through
regardless of their format, and which digital
input (optical or coax) they are fed from.
However, analog signals are not converted to
digital, and the format of the signal (e.g., PCM,
Dolby Digital or DTS) may not be changed.
Selection of the front panel jack as an output
will remain effective as long as the AVR 320 is
on. Once the unit is turned off, the jack will
revert to its normal use as an input when the
unit is turned on again.
Surround Setup
Once the basic input setup has been completed,
the next step is to set the surround mode you
wish to use with an input. Since surround
modes are a matter of personal taste, feel free
to select any mode you wish – you may change
it later. However, to make it easier to establish
the initial parameters for the AVR 320, it is best
to select Dolby Pro Logic II or Logic 7 for most
analog inputs and Dolby Digital for inputs connected to digital sources. In the case of inputs
such as a CD Player, Tape Deck or Tuner, you
may wish to set the mode to Stereo (“Surround
off”) as they are not typically used with multichannel program material, where it is unlikely
that surround-encoded material will be used.
Alternatively, the Logic 7 Music mode is a good
choice for stereo-only source material.
It is easiest to complete the surround setup
using the full-OSD on-screen menus. From the
MASTER menu (Figure 1), press the ⁄/¤
Buttons n until the › cursor is next to the

input should be set. Each of the remaining five
lines on the menu (Figure 3) contains the various surround mode categories, and within
those menus you may choose one of the submodes. Note that the list of specific sub-modes
in some categories will vary according to
whether 5.1 or 6.1/7.1 operation is chosen. In
addition, some of the modes available in the

5.1 or 6.1/7.1 speaker output configuration is
in use. When either of the speaker configurations is in use, you may select either the Neo:6
Music or Neo:6 Cinema mode when an analog
source is playing to deliver an enhanced 5.1channel sound field.
When the 5.1 configuration is in use the AVR
will automatically select the 5.1 version of DTS
processing when a DTS data stream is selected.
When the 6.1/7.1 mode is selected, the DTS-ES
Discrete mode will automatically be activated
when a DTS source with the ES Discrete “flag”
is in use. In these cases the DTS-ES Mode
Indicator D will light. When a non-ES DTS
disc is in use, you may select the DTS-ES Matrix
mode through this menu to create a full eightspeaker surround mode. See page 26 for a
complete explanation of the DTS modes.
In either case, the selection of a Logic 7 mode
enables Harman Kardon’s exclusive Logic 7 processing to create fully enveloping, multichannel
surround from either two-channel Stereo or
Matrix-encoded programming such as VHS cassettes, laser discs or television broadcasts produced with Dolby surround.
In the 5.1 configuration you may select the
Logic 7/5.1 Music, Cinema or Enhanced modes.
They work best with two-channel music, surround-encoded programs or standard twochannel programming of any type, respectively.
When the 6.1/7.1 mode is selected, only the
Music and Cinema modes are available, and the
output will be in a full eight-channel sound
field. Note that the Logic 7 modes are not
available when either Dolby Digital or DTS
Digital soundtracks are in use. See pages 26
and 27 for a complete explanation of the DSP
Surround modes.
On the DSP (SURR) menu, the selection
choices made with the ‹/› Buttons o 37
on the remote select from one of the DSP surround modes that are designed for use with
two-channel stereo programs to create a variety
of sound field presentations. The choices available are Hall 1, Hall 2, Theater, VMAx Near and
VMAx Far. The Hall and Theater modes are
designed for multichannel installations, while
the two VMAx modes are optimized for use in
delivering a full surround field when only the
front left and front right speakers are installed.
See pages 26 and 27 for a complete explanation of the DSP surround modes.
On the STEREO menu, the selection choices
made with the ‹/› Buttons o 37 on the
remote may either turn the surround processing
off for a traditional two-channel stereo presentation, or select 5 Stereo or 7 Stereo
depending on whether the 5.1 or 6.1/7.1 output is in use. The latter modes feed a two-channel presentation to all speakers, regardless of
the number of speakers in use. See page 27 for
a complete explanation of the 5 Stereo and 7
Stereo modes. After the selections are made on
the Dolby, DTS, Logic 7, DSP (Surround) or
stereo menus, press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n so
that the cursor moves to the BACK TO
MASTER MENU line and presss the Set
Button p.
On the Logic 7 menu, the selection choices
made with the ‹/› Buttons o 37 on the

6.1/7.1 speaker output configuration is in use.
21 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
System Configuration
Speaker Setup
This menu tells the AVR 320 which type of
speakers are in use. This is important as it
adjusts the settings that determine which
speakers receive low-frequency (bass) information. For each of these settings use the
LARGE setting if the speakers for a
particular position are traditional full-range
loudspeakers that are capable of reproducing
sounds below 100Hz. Use the SMALL setting for smaller, frequency-limited satellite
speakers that do not reproduce sounds below
100Hz. Note that when “small” speakers are
used, a subwoofer is required to reproduce
low-frequency sounds. Remember that the
“large” and “small” descriptions do not refer
to the actual physical size of the speakers, but
to their ability to reproduce low-frequency
sounds. If you are in doubt as to which category
describes your speakers, consult the specifications in the speakers’ owner’s manual, or ask
your dealer.
After the selections are made on the Dolby
DTS, Logic 7 DSP (Surr) or stereo menus, press
⁄/¤ Buttons n, so that the cursor moves
to the BACK TO MASTER MENU line
and press ther Set Button p.
It is easiest to enter the proper settings for the
speaker setup through the SPEAKER
SETUP menu (Figure 5). If that menu is not
already on your screen from the prior adjustments, press the OSD Button v to bring up
the MASTER MENU (Figure 1), and then
press the ¤ Button n twice so that the cursor is on the SPEAKER SETUP line. At
this point, press the Set Button p to bring

MENU
Figure 5
When the SPEAKER SETUP menu first
appears, the on-screen cursor › will be at the
top of the list of speaker positions, pointing
toward the LEFT/RIGHT line, which sets
the configuration for the front left and right
speakers. If you wish to make a change to the
front speakers’ configuration, press the ‹/›
Buttons o 37 so that either LARGE or
SMALL appears, matching the appropriate
22 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
description from the definitions shown above.
When SMALL is selected, low-frequency
sounds will be sent only to the subwoofer output. If you choose this option and there is no
subwoofer connected, you will not hear any lowfrequency sounds from the front channels.
When LARGE is selected, a full-range output
will be sent to the front left and front right
outputs. Depending on the choice made in
the SUBWOOFER line in this menu, bass
information may also be directed to the front
left/right speakers, a subwoofer or both.
When you have completed your selection for the
front channel, press the ¤ Button n on the
remote to move the cursor to CENTER.
Press the ‹/› Buttons o 37 on the remote
to select the option that best describes your system,
based on the speaker definitions shown below.
When SMALL is selected, low-frequency
center channel sounds will be sent only to the
subwoofer output. If you choose this option and
there is no subwoofer connected, you will not
hear low-frequency sounds from the center
channel speaker.
When LARGE is selected, a full-range output
will be sent to the center speaker output, and
NO center channel signal will be sent to the
subwoofer output.
NOTE: If you choose Logic 7 as the surround
mode for the particular input source for which
you are configuring your speakers, the AVR 320
will not make the LARGE option available for
the center speaker. This is due to the requirements of Logic 7 processing, and does not indicate a problem with your receiver.
When NONE is selected, no signals will be
sent to the center-channel output. The receiver
will operate in a “phantom” center channel
mode and center-channel information will
be sent to the left and right front channel
outputs. When only front left and right speakers are used, with no center or surround speakers, VMAx is a good alternative mode.
When you have completed your selection for
the center channel, press the ¤ Button n
on the remote to move the cursor to
SURROUND.
Press the ‹ / › Buttons o 37 on the remote
to select the option that best describes the sur-
round speakers in your system based on the
speaker definitions shown on this page.
When SMALL is selected, low-frequency
surround channel sounds will be sent to the
subwoofer output only. If you choose this
option and there is no subwoofer connected,
you will not hear any low frequency sounds
from the surround speakers.
When LARGE is selected, a full-range output
will be sent to the surround channel outputs,
and NO surround channel signals will be sent
to the subwoofer output.
When NONE is selected, surround-sound
information will be split between the front left
and front right outputs. For optimal performance when no surround speakers are in use, the
Dolby 3 Stereo mode should be used.
If the 6.1/7.1 configuration has been selected
in the SURROUND SELECT menu, an
additional configuration line is available on the
menu screen to set the speaker type for the
speakers connected to the Surround Back
Preamp Outputs 38 through an optional,
external power amplifier. The choices and procedure for configuring these speakers are identical to those shown above for the main surround speakers.
When you have completed your selection for the
surround channels, press the ¤ Button n on
the remote to move the cursor to SUBWOOFER.
Press the ‹ / › Buttons o 37 on the
remote to select the option that best describes
your system.
The choices available for the subwoofer position will depend on the settings for the other
speakers, particularly the front left/right positions.
If the front left/right speakers are set to
SMALL, the subwoofer will automatically be
set to SUB, which is the “on” position.
If the front left/right speakers are set to
LARGE, three options are available:
• If no subwoofer is connected to the
AVR 320, press the ‹ / › Buttons o 37
on the remote so that NONE appears in
the on-screen menu. When this option is
selected, all bass information will be routed
to the front left/right “main” speakers.
System Configuration
• If a subwoofer is connected to the AVR 320,
you have the option to have the front
left/right “main” speakers reproduce bass
frequencies at all times, and have the subwoofer operate only when the AVR 320 is
being used with a digital source that contains a dedicated Low Frequency Effects, or
LFE soundtrack. This allows you to use both
your main and subwoofer speakers to take
advantage of the special bass created for
certain movies. Press ‹ / › Buttons
o 37 on the remote so that SUB
(LFE) appears in the on-screen menu.
• If a subwoofer is connected and you wish to
use it for bass reproduction in conjunction
with the main front left/right speakers,
regardless of the type of program source or
Surround mode you are listening to, press
the ‹ / › Buttons o 37 on the remote
so that SUB LFE+L/R appears in
the on-screen menu. When this option is
selected, a full-range signal will be sent to
the front left/right “main” speakers, and the
subwoofer will receive the bass frequencies
under frequency selected in the next option
setting on this menu, as described below.
When you have completed your selection for the
subwoofer, press the ¤ button n on the
remote to change the cursor to SUB XOVER FREQ. The subwoofer crossover setting may only be adjusted using the on-screen
display system.
At this line, you will select the frequency at
which bass information is directed to the
Subwoofer Output ∞. The choices available
will depend on the setting made previously for
the front left/right speakers. When making
these selections, choose the crossover frequency
that is closest to that of your front left/right
speakers, or the upper frequency limit of your
subwoofer. This figure is normally printed in the
owner’s manual or data sheet for the speakers;
or consult the speaker’s manufacturer.
• When the front speakers have been set to
LARGE, the crossover choices are
40 Hz or 60 Hz to match the typical
crossover points of full range speakers.
Choose the option that is closest to your
speakers’ design.
• When the front speakers have been set to
SMALL, the crossover choices are
80 Hz or 100 Hz to match the typical
crossover points of the smaller speakers
used in satellite speaker systems. Choose
the option that is closest to your speakers’
design.
When all speaker selections have been made,
press the ¤ Button n and then the Set
Button p to return to the Master
menu.
Delay Settings
If Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic is selected as
the surround mode for an input, you may need
to adjust the delay time setting. Note that the
delay time is not adjustable for any other modes.
Due to the different distances between the
listening position for the front-channel speakers
and the surround speakers, the amount of time
it takes for sound to reach your ears from the
front versus surround speakers differs. You may
compensate for this difference through the use
of the delay settings to adjust the timing for
the speaker placement and acoustic conditions
in your listening room or home theater.
The factory setting is appropriate for most
rooms, but some installations create an uncommon distance between the front and surround
speakers that may cause the arrival of frontchannel sounds to become disconnected from
surround-channel sounds.
To resynchronize the front and surround channels, follow these steps:
1. Measure the distance from the listening
position to the front speakers.
2. Measure the distance from the listening
position to the surround speakers.
3. Subtract the distance to the surround speakers from the distance to the front speakers.
a. When setting the delay time for the
Dolby Digital surround modes, the optimal delay time is the result of that subtraction. For example, if the front speakers are ten feet away and the surround
speakers are five feet away, the optimal
delay time is figured as 10–5=5. Thus,
in this example, the delay time for Dolby
Digital should be set at five milliseconds.
round speakers are five feet away, the
optimal delay time is figured as
10–5+15=20. Thus, in this example, the
Pro Logic delay should be set at twenty
milliseconds.
NOTE: The DTS, Logic 7 and DSP modes use a
fixed, nonadjustable delay time.
The Dolby Digital mode also includes a separate
setting for the Center Channel Delay mode,
since the discrete nature of these signals makes
the location of the center-channel speaker more
critical. To calculate the delay for the center
channel, measure the distance from the preferred listening position in the center of the
room to both the center-channel speaker and
either the left or right speaker.
If the distances are equal, no further adjustment
is required and the center delay should be set to
zero. If the distance to the front speakers is
greater than the distance to the center speaker,
you may wish to reposition the speakers by
moving the front left and front right speakers
closer to the listening position or the center
speaker further away from the listening position.
If repositioning of the speakers is not possible,
adjust the center delay time, adding one millisecond of center-channel delay for every foot
closer to the listening position the center
speaker is than the front speakers. For example,
if the front left and front right speakers are
each 10 feet from the listening position and the
center-channel speaker is 8 feet away, the delay
is figured as 10–8=2, suggesting an optimal
center delay of 2 milliseconds.
To set the delay time for a specific input,
the DELAY ADJUST menu (Figure 6)
should be visible on your on-screen display. If
the system is not already at that point, press
the OSD Button v to bring up the MASTER MENU, press the › Button n three
times or until the on-screen › cursor is pointing
at the DELAY ADJUST line. Press the
Set Button p to call up the menu.
b. When setting the delay time for the Pro
Logic mode, take the result of the subtraction and add 15 to obtain the optimal delay time. For example, if the front
speakers are ten feet away and the sur-

Output Level Adjustment
Output level adjustment is a key part of the
configuration of any surround-sound product. It
is particularly important for a digital receiver
such as the AVR 320, as correct outputs ensure
that you hear sound tracks with the proper
directionality and intensity.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Listeners are often confused about the operation of the surround
channels. While some assume that sound
should always be coming from each speaker,
most of the time there will be little or no
sound in the surround channels. This is
because they are only used when a movie
director or sound mixer specifically places
sound there to create ambience, a special
effect or to continue action from the front of
the room to the rear. When the output levels
are properly set, it is normal for surround
speakers to operate only occasionally.
Artificially increasing the volume to the rear
speakers may destroy the illusion of an
enveloping sound field that duplicates the way
you hear sound in a movie theater or concert hall.
24 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
Before beginning the output level adjustment
process, make certain that all speaker connections have been properly made. The system
volume should be set to the level that you will
use during a typical listening session. Finally,
make certain that the Balance Control Ò is
set to the center “12 o’clock” position.
Using EzSet
Harman Kardon’s exclusive EzSet remote makes
it possible to quickly and accurately set the
AVR 320’s output levels without the use of a
sound pressure meter, although manual adjustment is also available. However, for the easiest
set-up, follow these steps while seated in the
listening position that will be used most often:
1. Make certain that all speaker positions
have been properly configured for their
“large” or “small” settings (as outlined
above) and turn off the OSD system if it is
in use.
2. Adjust the volume so that it is at -15, as
shown in the on-screen display or Main
Information Display Y.
3. Hold the remote in front of you at arm’s
length, being sure not to cover the EzSet
Sensor Microphone 44 at the top of
the remote.
4. Press and hold the SPL Indicator Select
Button 41 for three seconds. Release it
when the Program/SPL Indicator c
stops flashing and and remains lit. Within
five seconds, press the “5” Numeric Key
r on the remote if your system is configured for 5.1 operation with standard
speakers or the “7” Numeric Key r on
the remote if your system is configured for
6.1/7.1 operation with a full speaker complement including rear surround speakers.
Once the correct channel configuration
button has been pressed the test noise will
be heard from the front left speaker.
tive to the reference volume level, and in
the Speaker/Channel Input Indicators
Q where the letters for the channel being
adjusted will flash to indicate from which
channel the test tone should be heard. As
the adjustment proceeds, a few things will
happen simultaneously:
• The channel position being adjusted will
flash in the Speaker/Channel Input
Indicators Q. If the test noise is heard
from a channel other than the one shown
in the Indicator, there is an error in the
speaker connections. If this is the case,
press the Test Button i TWICE to
stop the adjustment. Then, turn the unit
off and verify that all speakers are connected to the proper Outputs
nop and that any connections
made to rear surround speakers powered
by optional amplifiers through the
Preamp Outputs 38 are correct.
• As the individual channels are set, the
channel name and the adjustment offset
will appear in the on-screen display (if
connected) and the Main Information
Display Y. While the level is changing,
the Program/SPL Indicator c will
change colors to reflect the output level
in relation to the reference. A red indication shows that the level is too high,
while an amber indication shows that the
level is too low. When the indicator is
green, the level is correct, and the test
noise will move to the next channel.
• While adjustments are being made, the
red LED under the AVR Selector f
will flash. This is normal, and indicates
that EzSet is operating.
7. After the test noise has circulated once
through each channel, it will send the tone
to each channel once again, to verify the
settings.
5. At this point, EzSet will take over, adjusting
the output level of each channel so that
when the process is complete all levels will
be equal and at the set reference point.
This process may take a few minutes,
depending on the extent of adjustment
required.
8. After two complete circulations of the
tone, the levels are set. The Program/SPL
Indicator c will remain green at each
channel. Upon completion of the second
circulation, the Program/SPL Indicator
c will flash green twice and then go
out. The tone will stop and the AVR 320
will return to normal operation.
6. During the adjustment, you will see the
location of the channel position being
adjusted appear in the on-screen
display (if connected) in the Main
Information Display Y, alternating
with a readout of the output setting, rela-
If you find that the output levels chosen by
EzSet are either uncomfortably low or high, you
may repeat the procedure. Return to Step 2 and
adjust the master volume either slightly higher
or lower to accommodate your particular room
layout and your tastes. You may repeat this pro-
System Configuration
cedure as many times as necessary to achieve a
desired result. In order to prevent possible
damage to your hearing or your equipment, we
emphasize that you should avoid setting the
master volume above 0dB.
Manual Output Level Adjustment
Output levels may also be adjusted manually,
either to set them to a specific level with an
SPL meter, or to make fine tuning adjustments
to the levels obtained using the EzSet remote.

Manual output level adjustment is most easily
done through the CHANNEL ADJUST
menu (Figure 7). If you are already at the main
menu, press the ¤ Button n until the onscreen › cursor is next to the CHANNEL
ADJUST line. If you are not at the main
menu, press the OSD Button v to bring up
the MASTER MENU (Figure 1), and then
press the ¤ Button n four times so that the
on-screen › cursor is next to the CHANNEL
ADJUST line. Press the Set Button p to
bring the CHANNEL ADJUST menu
(Figure 7) to the screen.
As soon as the new menu appears, you will
hear a test noise circulate from speaker to
speaker in a clockwise direction around the
room. The test noise will play for two seconds
in each speaker before circulating, and a blinking on-screen cursor will appear next to the
name of each speaker location when the sound
is at that speaker.
NOTE: Remember to verify that the speakers
have been properly connected. As the test noise
circulates, listen to make certain that the sound
comes from the speaker position shown in the
Main Information Display Y. If the sound
from a speaker location does NOT match the
position indicated in the display, turn the
AVR 320 off using the Main Power Switch
1 and check the speaker wiring or connections to external power amplifiers to make certain that each speaker is connected to the correct output terminal.
Continue to adjust the individual channels until
the volume level sounds the same from each
speaker. Note that adjustments should be made
with the ‹/› Buttons o 37 on the remote
only, NOT the main volume controls. If you are
using a sound-pressure level (SPL) meter for
precise level adjustment, set the volume so that
the meter reads 75dB, C-Weighting Slow.
You may also adjust the output levels manually
while using the level indication feature of the
EzSet remote. To activate the sensor and
indicator, simply press and release the SPL
Indicator Select Button 41 on the
remote while the test tone is circulating.
The Program/SPL Indicator c will change
color to indicate the level. Adjust the level
using the ‹/› Buttons o 37 until the LED
lights green for all channels. When it is red, the
level is too high; when it is amber, the level is
too low. Press the SPL Indicator Select
Button 41 when you are finished to turn the
sensor and Indicator off.
NOTE: The subwoofer output level is not
adjustable using the test tone. To change the
subwoofer level, follow the steps for Output
Level Trim Adjustment on page 32.
When all channels have an equal volume level,
the adjustment is complete. To exit this menu,
press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the onscreen › cursor is next to the BACK TO
MASTER MENU line, and then press the
Set Button p to return to the MASTER
menu.
The output levels may also be adjusted at any
time using the remote control and semi-OSD
system. To adjust the output levels in this fashion, press the Test Button i. As soon as
the button is pressed, the test tone will begin
to circulate as indicated earlier. The correct
channel from which the test noise should be
heard will be shown in the lower third of the
video screen and in the Main Information
Display Y. While the test noise is circulating,
the proper channel position will also be
indicated in the Speaker/Channel Input
Indicators Q by a blinking letter within the
correct channel.
To adjust the output level, press the ‹/›
Buttons o 37 until the desired level is
shown in the display or on screen. Once the
buttons are released, the test noise will begin
to circulate again in five seconds.
When all channels have the same output level,
press the Test Tone Selector i button
again to complete the process.
NOTE: Output level adjustment is not available
for the VMAx or Surround Off mode.
Additional Input Adjustments
After one input has been adjusted for Surround
mode, digital input (if any), speaker type, and
output levels, go back to the IN/OUT
SETUP line on the MASTER MENU and
enter the settings for each input that you will
use. In most cases, only the digital input and
surround mode will be different from one input
to the next, while the speaker type, crossover
frequency, Night mode and output level settings will usually be the same and may be
quickly entered by entering the same data used
for the original input.
Once the settings outlined on the previous
pages have been made, the AVR 320 is ready
for operation. While there are some additional
settings to be made, these are best done after
you have had an opportunity to listen to a variety of sources and different kinds of program
material. These advanced settings are described
on pages 34 to 35 of this manual. In addition,
any of the settings made in the initial configuration of the unit may be changed at any time.
As you add new or different sources or speakers, or if you wish to change a setting to better
reflect your listening taste, simply follow the
instructions for changing the settings for that
parameter as shown in this section.
Having completed the setup and configuration
process for your AVR 320, you are about
to experience the finest in music and hometheater listening. Enjoy!

that are much smoother and more realistic than with other decoding techniques. The Logic 7 M or
Music mode should be used with analog or PCM stereo sources. Logic 7 M enhances the listening
experience by presenting a wider front soundstage and greater rear ambience. Both Logic 7 modes
also direct low-frequency information to the subwoofer (if installed and configured) to deliver
maximum bass impact. The Logic 7 E (or Enhance) mode, available only when the 5.1 option is chosen,
is an extension of the Logic 7 modes that is primarily used with musical programs. Logic 7 adds
additional bass enhancement that circulates low frequencies in the 40Hz to 120Hz range to the front
and surround speakers to deliver a less localized soundstage that appears broader and wider than
when the subwoofer is the sole source of bass energy.
DTS Neo:6 Cinema
DTS Neo:6 Music
These two modes are available when any analog source is playing to create a six-channel
surround presentation from conventional Matrix-encoded and traditional Stereo sources. Select
the Cinema version of Neo:6 when a program with any type of analog Matrix surround encoding
is present. Select the Music version of Neo:6 for optimal processing when a nonencoded,
two-channel stereo program is being played.
Delay time not adjustable
DOLBY 3 STEREO
Uses the information contained in a surround-encoded or two-channel stereo program to
create center-channel information. In addition, the information that is normally sent to the
rear-channel surround speakers is carefully mixed in with the front-left and front-right
channels for increased realism. Use this mode when you have a center-channel speaker
but no surround speakers.
No surround channels

VMAx Near
VMAx Far
When only the two front-channel loudspeakers are used, Harman’s patented VMAx mode
delivers a three-dimensional sound space with the illusion of “phantom speakers” at the
center and surround positions. The VMAx N, or “Near Field” mode should be selected when
your listening position is less than five feet from the speakers. The VMAx F, or “Far Field” mode
should be selected when your listening position is greater than five feet from the speakers.
The VMAx modes are also available using the Headphones Output 4. When headphones
are being used, the Far Field mode will appear to push the sound field away from your ears,
reducing the “inside the head” sensation often experienced when using headphones.
No surround channels
5-Channel Stereo
7-Channel Stereo
This mode takes advantage of multiple speakers to place a stereo signal at both the front and
back of a room. Depending on whether the AVR has been configured for either 5.1 or 6.1/7.1
operation, one of these modes, but not both, is available at any time. Ideal for playing music in
situations such as a party, it places the same signal this mode at the front-left and surround-left,
and front-right and surround-right speakers. The center channel is fed a summed mono mix of the
in-phase material of the left and right channels.

Basic Operation
Once you have completed the initial setup and
configuration of the AVR 320, it is simple to
operate and enjoy. The following instructions will
help you maximize the enjoyment of your new
receiver:
Turning the AVR 320 On or Off
• When using the AVR 320 for the first time, you
must press the Main Power Switch 1 on the
front panel to turn the unit on. This places the
unit in a Standby mode, as indicated by the
amber color of the Power Indicator 3 . Once
the unit is in Standby, you may begin a listening
session by pressing the System Power Control
2 on the front panel or the AVR Selector
f∫. Note that the Power Indicator 3
will turn green. This will turn the unit on and
return it to the input source that was last used.
The unit may also be turned on from Standby by
pressing any of the Input Selector buttons on
the remote egç∂ or the Source button % on the front panel.
NOTE: After pressing one of the Input Selector
Buttons egç∂ to turn the unit on,
press the AVR Selector f∫ to set the
remote control to the AVR 320 functions.
To turn the unit off at the end of a listening
session, simply press the System Power
Control 2 on the front panel or the Power
Off Button aå on the remote. Power will
be shut off to any equipment plugged into the
rear panel Switched AC Accessory Outlet
‡ and the Power Indicator 3 will turn
amber.
When the remote is used to turn the unit “off”
it is actually placing the system in a Standby
mode, as indicated by the amber color of the
Power Indicator 3.
• To program the AVR 320 for automatic turnoff, press the Sleep Button j on the remote.
Each press of the button will decrease the time
before shut-down in the following sequence:

brightness when the Sleep function is
programmed. To cancel the Sleep function,
press and hold the Sleep Buttonj until
the information display returns to normal
brightness, the Sleep indicator numbers
disappear and the words SLEEP OFF
appear in the Main Information Display Y.
When you will be away from home for an
extended period of time it is always a good
idea to completely turn the unit off with the
front panel Main Power Switch 1.
NOTE: All preset memories are lost if the unit is
left turned off by using the Main Power
Switch 1 for more than two weeks.
Source Selection
• To select a source, press any of the Source
Selector Buttons on the remote eg
ç∂.
• The input source may also be changed by
pressing the front-panel Input Source
Selector Button %. Each press of the button
will move the input selection through the list of
available inputs.
• As the input is changed, the AVR 320 will
automatically switch to the digital input (if
selected), surround mode, speaker configuration, output levels, crossover frequency and
night mode status that were entered during the
configuration process for that source.
• The front panel Video 4 Inputs Ô may be
used to connect a device such as a video game
or camcorder to your home entertainment
system on a temporary basis.
• As the input source is changed, the new input
name will appear momentarily as an on-screen
display in the lower third of the video display.
The input name will also appear in the Main
Information Display Y and a green LED will
light next to the selected input’s name in the
front-panel Input Indicators ˆ.
• When an audio source is selected, the last
video input used remains routed to the Video
Outputs gi and Video Monitor Output
¤. This permits simultaneous viewing and listening to different sources.
• When a Video source is selected, the video signal for that input will be routed to the Video
Monitor Output Jack ¤ and will be viewable
on a TV monitor connected to the AVR 320.
Volume Control
• Adjust the volume to a comfortable level
using the front panel Volume Control ı or
remote Volume Up/Down 40
buttons.
• When listening in the Stereo mode, with the
surround circuits off, the Balance Control Ò
may be used to adjust the relative sound output
between the left front and right front speakers.
• To temporarily silence all speaker outputs,
press the Mute Button 43 K . This will
interrupt the output to all speakers and the
headphone jack, but it will not affect any
recording or dubbing that may be in progress.
When the system is muted, the MUTE
Indicator Z will light in the Main
Information Display ˜. Press the Mute
Buttons 43 K again to return to normal
operation.
• During a listening session, you may wish to
adjust the Bass Control  and Treble
Control Ú to suit your listening tastes or
room acoustics.
• To set the output of the AVR 320 so that
the output is “flat,” with the tone controls deactivated, press the Tone Mode Button 8
once or twice so that the words Tone Out
appear momentarily in the Main Information
Display Y. To return the tone controls to an
active condition, press the Tone Mode 8 button once or twice so that the words Tone
In momentarily appear in the Main
Information Display Y.
• For private listening, plug the 1/4" stereo
phone plug from a pair of stereo headphones
into the front panel Headphone Jack 4.
Note that when the headphone’s plug is connected, the word HEADPHONE will scroll
once across the Main Information Display
Y and all speakers will be silenced. When the
headphone plug is removed, the audio feed to
the speakers will be restored. Note that you
may enjoy the VMAx modes through the headphones for a wider sound field image.
Surround Mode Selection
One of the most important features of the AVR
320 is its ability to reproduce a full multichannel surround-sound field from digital sources,
analog matrix surround-encoded programs and
standard stereo programs.
Selection of a surround mode is based on personal taste, as well as the type of program
source material being used. For example, motion
Operation
pictures or TV programs bearing the logo of one
of the major surround-encoding processes, such
as Dolby Surround, DTS Stereo or UltraStereo®
may be played in either the Dolby Digital, Dolby
Pro Logic II Cinema, DTS Neo:6 Cinema, or
Logic 7 Cinema surround modes depending on
the source material.
To select from the DSP modes (Hall 1, Hall 2,
Theater, VMAx Near or VMAx Far), first press
the Surround Mode Selector 9k.
Next, either press the front panel selector 9
repeatedly or press the ⁄ / ¤ Buttons n
on the remote to scroll through the list of
available modes.
NOTE: Once a program has been encoded with
matrix surround information, it retains the surround information as long as the program is
broadcast in stereo. Thus, movies with surround
sound may be decoded via any of the analog
surround modes such as Pro Logic II Cinema,
Logic 7 Cinema or DTS Neo:6 Cinema, when
they are broadcast via conventional TV stations,
cable, pay-TV and satellite transmission. In addition, a growing number of made-for-television
programs, sports broadcasts, radio dramas and
music CDs are also recorded in surround sound.
You may view a list of these programs at the
Dolby Laboratories Web site at www.dolby.com.
An individual mode indicator will also light up
DEGIJKLMN. As the surround
modes change, a green LED will light next to
the current mode in the Surround Mode
Indicators ˘ list on the front panel.
Even when a program is not listed as carrying
intentional surround information, you may find
that the Pro Logic II, Logic 7 Enhanced (available
only in the 5.1 configuration) or DTS Neo:6,
VMAx and the Hall or Theater modes often
deliver enveloping surround presentations
through the use of the natural information present in all stereo recordings. However, for stereo,
but not surround programs, we suggest that you
experiment with the other modes.
Surround modes are selected using either the
front panel controls or the remote. To select a
surround mode from the front panel, press the
Surround Mode Selector 9 to scroll up or
down through the list of available modes. To
select a surround mode using the remote, first
determine which of the surround mode categories you wish to choose from and press the
button corresponding to that category: Dolby
Modes 5w, DTS Surround 6x from
digital sources, DTS Neo:6 & 30 from analog
sources, Logic 7 7y, DSP 9k modes
or Stereo $ 29 .
As you press any of the Mode Select Buttons
567$&wxy 29 30 (except
the Surround Mode Selector k as noted
below) the surround mode name will scroll
across the Main Information Display Y. Let
the mode scroll so that you read the mode’s
name, but if you wish to select another mode in
that category, press the button again before
the mode name scrolls off to the left of the
Main Information Display Y or on-screen
display.
Note that the Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1, DTSES Matrix and DTS-ES Discrete modes may only
be selected when a digital input is in use. In
addition, when a digital source is present, the
AVR 320 will automatically select and switch to
the correct mode, regardless of the mode that
has been previously selected. For more information on selecting digital sources, see the following section of this manual.
To listen to a program in traditional two-channel stereo, using the front left and front right
speakers only (plus the subwoofer, if installed
and configured), press the Stereo Button
$ 29 until SURR OFF appears in the
Main Information Display Y.
Digital Audio Playback
Digital audio is a major advancement over older
analog surround processing systems such as
Dolby Pro Logic. It delivers five discrete channels:
left front, center, right front, left surround and
right surround. Each channel reproduces full frequency range (20Hz to 20kHz) and offers dramatically improved dynamic range and significant
improvements to signal-to-noise ratios. In addition, digital systems have the capability to deliver
an additional channel that is specifically devoted
to low-frequency information. This is the “.1”
channel referred to when you see these systems
described as “5.1,” “6.1” or “7.1”. The bass
channel is separate from the other channels, but
since it is intentionally bandwidth-limited, sound
designers have given it that unique designation.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a standard part of DVD, and is
available on specially encoded LD discs and satellite broadcasts and it is a part of the new highdefinition television (HDTV) system.
Note that an optional, external RF demodulator
is required to use the AVR 320 to listen to the
Dolby Digital sound tracks available on laser
discs. Connect the RF output of the LD player
to the demodulator and then connect the digital output of the demodulator to the Optical
or Coaxial Inputs 31 32 *Ó of the AVR
320. No demodulator is required for use with
DVD players or DTS-encoded laser discs.
DTS
DTS is another digital audio system that is
capable of delivering 5.1 or 6.1 discrete or
matrix soundfield reproduction. Although both
DTS and Dolby Digital are digital, they use different methods of encoding the signals, and
thus they require different decoding circuits to
convert the digital signals back to analog.
DTS-encoded sound tracks are available on
select DVD and LD discs, as well as on special
audio-only DTS discs. You may use any LD or
CD player equipped with a digital output to
play DTS-encoded discs with the AVR 320. All
that is required is to connect the player’s output to either the Optical or Coaxial Input on
the rear panel 31 32 or front panel *Ó.
In order to listen to DVDs encoded with DTS
sound tracks, the DVD player must be compatible with the DTS signal as indicated by a DTS
logo on the player’s front panel. Note that early
DVD players may not be able to play DTSencoded DVDs. This does not indicate a problem with the AVR 320, as some players cannot
pass the DTS signal through to the digital outputs. If you are in doubt as to the capability of
your DVD player to handle DTS discs, consult
the player’s owner’s manual.
Selecting a Digital Source
To utilize either digital mode, you must have
properly connected a digital source to the
AVR 320. Connect the digital outputs from
DVD players, HDTV receivers, satellite systems
or CD players to the Optical or Coaxial
Inputs 31 32 *Ó. In order to provide a
backup signal and a source for analog stereo
recording, the analog outputs provided on digital source equipment should also be connected
to their appropriate inputs on the AVR 320 rear
panel (e.g., connect the analog stereo audio
output from a DVD to the DVD Audio Inputs
§ on the rear panel when you connect the
source’s digital outputs).
If you have not already configured an input for
a digital source using the on-screen menus as
shown on page 21, first select the input using
the remote or front panel controls as outlined
in this manual. Next, select the digital source
by pressing the Digital Select Button
qÛ and then using the ⁄/¤ Buttons n
29 OPERATION
Operation
on the remote or the Selector Buttons 7$
on the front panel to choose any of the
OPTICAL or COAXIAL inputs, as they
appear in the Main Information Display Y
display indicator BF or on-screen display.
When the digital source is playing, the AVR 320
will automatically detect whether it is a multichannel Dolby Digital, DTS source, MP3 or a
conventional PCM signal, which is the standard
output from CD players. A Bitstream
Indicator A will light in the Main
Information Display ˜ to confirm that the
digital signal is Dolby Digital, DTS or PCM.
Digital Status Indicators
When a digital source is playing, the AVR 320
senses the type of bitstream data that is present. Using this information, the correct surround mode will automatically be selected. For
example, DTS bitstreams will cause the unit to
switch to DTS decoding, and Dolby Digital bitstreams will enable Dolby Digital decoding.
When the unit senses PCM data from CDs and
LDs, it will allow the appropriate surround
sources to be selected manually. Since the
range of available surround modes is dependent on the type of digital data that is present,
the AVR 320 uses a variety of indicators to let
you know what type of signal is present. This
will help you to understand the choice of
modes.
When a digital source is playing, a Bitstream
Indicator A will light to show which type of
signal is playing:
DOLBY D: When the DOLBY D indicator
lights, a Dolby Digital bitstream is being
received. Depending on the settings on the
source player and specific surround information
and number of channels on the disc, a number
of surround modes are possible. For discs with
full 5.1 audio, only the Dolby Digital and VMAx
modes are available.
DTS: When the DTS indicator lights, a DTS bitstream is being received. When the unit senses
this type of data, only the applicable DTS mode
may be used. The ES portion of the DTS indicator will light only if you have selected 6.1/7.1
Surround Mode option in the Surround Select
menu (see page 20 for further information).
PCM: When the PCM indicator lights, a standard Pulse Code Modulation, or PCM, signal is
being received. This is the type of digital audio
used by conventional compact disc and laser
disc recordings. When a PCM bitstream is present, all modes except Dolby Digital and DTS are
30 OPERATION
available.
MP3: When the MP3 indicator lights, a compatible MPEG 1/Layer 3 digital signal is being
received. This is the popular audio format used
by many computer programs for recording compressed audio files. When an MP3 bitstream is
present, the sound will automatically be played
in the Stereo (Surround Off) mode. The surround modes are not available during MP3
playback.
In addition to the bitstream indicators, the
AVR 320 features a set of unique channel-input
indicators that tell you how many channels of
digital information are being received and/or
whether the digital signal is interrupted. (See
Figure 8.)
Figure 8
These indicators are the L/C/R/LFE/SL/SR/SBL/
SBR letters that are inside the center boxes of
the Speaker/Channel Input Indicators Q
in the front panel Main Information Display
˜. When a standard analog signal is in use,
only the “L” and “R” indicators will light, as
analog signals have only left and right channels.
Digital signals, however, may have two, five, six
or seven separate channels, depending on the
program material, the method of transmission
and the way in which it was encoded. When a
digital signal is playing, the letters in these indicators will light in response to the specific signal being received. It is important to note that
although Dolby Digital, for example, is referred
to as a “5.1” system, not all Dolby Digital
DVDs or programs are encoded for 5.1. Thus, it
is sometimes normal for a DVD with a Dolby
Digital soundtrack to trigger only the “L” and
“R” indicators.
NOTE: Many DVD discs are recorded with both
“5.1” and “2.0” versions of the same soundtrack. When playing a DVD, always be certain
to check the type of material on the disc. Most
discs show this information in the form of a
listing or icon on the back of the disc jacket.
When a disc does offer multiple soundtrack
choices, you may have to make some adjustments to your DVD player (usually with the
“Audio Select” button or in a menu screen on
the disc) to send a full 5.1 feed to the AVR
320. It is also possible for the type of signal
feed to change during the course of a DVD
playback. In some cases, the previews of special
material will only be recorded in 2.0 audio,
while the main feature is available in 5.1 audio.
The AVR 320 will automatically sense changes
to the bitstream and channel count and reflect
them in these indicators.
The letters used by the Speaker/Channel
Input Indicators Q also flash to indicate
when a bitstream has been interrupted. This
will happen when a digital input source is
selected before the playback starts, or when a
digital source such as a DVD is paused. The
flashing indicators remind you that the playback has stopped due to the absence of a digital signal and not through any fault of the
AVR 320. This is normal, and the digital playback will resume once the playback is started
again.
Night Mode
A special feature of Dolby Digital is the Night
mode, which enables specially encoded Dolby
Digital input sources to be played back with full
digital intelligibility while reducing the minimum peak level by 1/4 to 1/3. This prevents
abruptly loud transitions from disturbing others,
without reducing the impact of the digital
source. The Night mode is available only when
Dolby Digital signals with special data are
being played.
The Night mode may be engaged when a Dolby
Digital DVD is playing by pressing the Night
Mode Button l on the remote. Next, press
the ⁄/¤ Buttons n to select either the
middle range or full compression versions of
the Night mode. To turn the Night mode off,
press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the message in the lower third of the video display and
the Main Information Display Y reads
D-Range Off.
The Night mode may also be selected to always
be on at either level of compression using the
options in the Surround Select
menu. See page 22 for information on using
the menus to set this option.
IMPORTANT NOTES ON DIGITAL
PLAYBACK:
• When the digital playback source is stopped,
or in a pause, fast forward or chapter search
mode, the digital audio data will momentarily
stop, and the channel position letters inside the
Speaker/Channel Input Indicators Q will
Operation
flash. This is normal and does not indicate a
problem with either the AVR 320 or the source
machine. The AVR 320 will return to digital
playback as soon as the data is available and
when the machine is in a standard play mode.
• Although the AVR 320 will decode virtually all
DVD movies, CDs and HDTV sources, it is possible that some future digital sources may not be
compatible with the AVR 320.
• Note that not all digitally encoded programs
contain full 5.1-channel audio. Consult the program guide that accompanies the DVD or laser
disc to determine which type of audio has been
recorded on the disc. The AVR 320 will automatically sense the type of digital surround
encoding used and adjust to accommodate it.
• When a digital source is playing, you may not
be able to select some of the analog surround
modes such as Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby 3,
Stereo, Hall, Theater or Logic 7.
• When a Dolby Digital or DTS source is playing, it is not possible to make an analog
recording using the Tape Outputs ¢ and
Video 1 or Video 2 Audio Outputs 33 37 .
However, the digital signals will be passed
through to the Digital Audio Outputs
⁄Ó.
PCM Audio Playback
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is the non-compressed digital audio system used for compact
discs and laser discs. The digital circuits in the
AVR 320 are capable of high-quality digital-toanalog decoding, and they may be connected
directly to the digital audio output of your CD
or LD player.
Connections may be made to either the rear
panel Optical or Coaxial Inputs 31 32 or the
front panel Digital Inputs *Ó.
To listen to a PCM digital source, first select the
input for the desired source (e.g., CD). Next
press the Digital Select Button Û q and
then use the ⁄/¤ Buttons n on the
remote, or the Selector Buttons 7$ on the
front panel, until the desired choice appears in
the Main Information Display Y.
When a PCM source is playing, the PCM
Indicator A will light. During PCM playback,
you may select any Surround mode except
Dolby Digital or DTS.
MP3 Audio Playback
The AVR 320 is one of the first A/V receivers to
provide on-board decoding for the MP3 audio
format used by computers and portable audio
devices. Also, some new CD players are capable
of playing back optical discs that are recorded
with MP3, rather than standard CD audio information. By offering MP3 decoding, the AVR
320 is able to deliver precise conversion of the
digital signals to an analog output, along with
the benefits of listening to the MP3 audio
through the AVR 320’s high-current amplifier
and the speakers from your surround system,
rather than the smaller speakers and low-powered amplifiers typically used with computers.
To take advantage of the AVR 320’s MP3 capabilities, simply connect the PCM output of a
computer’s sound card or the PCM output of a
portable digital audio device to either the rear
panel Digital Inputs 31 32 or the front
panel Digital Inputs *Ó. When the digital
signal is available, the MP3 Bitstream
Indicator A will light, and the audio will
begin playing.
NOTES:
• The AVR 320 is only capable of playing signals in the MP3 (MPEG 1/Layer 3) format. It is
not compatible with other computer audio
codecs.
• The digital audio input signal may be either
optical or coaxial, but the signal must be in the
PCM format. Direct connection of USB or serial
data outputs is not possible, even though the
signals are in the MP3 format. If you have any
questions about the data output format from
your computer or a sound card, check with the
device’s owner’s manual or contact the manufacturer’s technical support area.
• If your computer or sound card’s digital output is not capable of direct connection to the
AVR, you may use an optional, external
transcoder, such as those available from
Harman Kardon to convert the USB output of a
computer to a format compatible with the AVR.
Contact your Harman Kardon dealer for additional details.

output at a future time, the setting must
be changed again using the OSD menu system,
as described above.
• To manually tune through the list of stored
preset stations one by one, press the Preset
Stations Selector Buttons # 33 © on
the front panel or remote.
Tape Recording
In normal operation, the audio or video source
selected for listening through the AVR 320 is
sent to the record outputs. This means that any
program you are watching or listening to may
be recorded simply by placing machines connected to the outputs for Tape Outputs ¢ or
Video 1 or 2 Outputs gi 33 37 in the
record mode.
When a digital audio recorder is connected to
the Digital Audio Outputs ⁄Ó, you are
able to record the digital signal using a CD-R,
MiniDisc or other digital recording system. In
order to record using the Digital Coax 3
Output Ó, you must set this connection to an
output using the IN/OUT SETUP menu
as described below and on page 20.
Front Panel Connections
In addition to the rear panel digital outputs, the
AVR 320 offers Harman Kardon’s exclusive configurable front panel output jack feature. For
easy connection of portable devices, you may

Output Level Trim Adjustment
Normal output level adjustment for the AVR
320 is established using the test tone, as outlined on pages 23 and 24. In some cases, however, it may be desirable to adjust the output
levels using program material such as a test
disc, or a selection you are familiar with.
Additionally, the output level for the subwoofer
can only be adjusted using this procedure.
To adjust the output levels using program
material, first set the reference volume for the
front left and front right channels using the
Volume Control ı 40 î.
If you are using a disc with test signals or an
external signal generator as the source from
which to trim the output levels, you may use
the EzSet feature of the remote to guide you to
the correct SPL level. To use the remote for this
purpose, press and quickly release the SPL
Indicator Select 41 to activate the sensor.
While the test tone is circulating, the
Program/SPL Indicator c will change color
to indicate the level. Adjust the level as shown
above until the LED lights green for all channels. When it is red the level is too high; when
it is amber the level is too low. Press the SPL
Indicator Select 41 to turn the sensor and
indicator off.
Once the reference level has been set, press
the Channel Select button mÙ and note
that FRONT L LEV will appear in the
Main Information Display Y. To change
the level, first press the Set Button p@ ,
and then use the Selector Buttons 7$ or
the ⁄ / ¤ Buttons n to raise or lower the
level. DO NOT use the volume control, as this
will alter the reference setting.
NOTES:
• The digital outputs are active only when a
digital signal is present, and they do not convert an analog input to a digital signal, or
change the format of the digital signal. In
addition, the digital recorder must be compatible with the output signal. For example,
the PCM digital input from a CD player may
be recorded on a CD-R or MiniDisc, but Dolby
Digital or DTS signals may not.
Once the change has been made, press the Set
Button p@ and then press the Selector
Buttons 7$ or the ⁄ / ¤ buttons n to
select the next output channel location that you
wish to adjust. To adjust the subwoofer level,
press the Selector Buttons 7$ or the
⁄ / ¤ Buttons n until WOOFER LEV
appears in the Main Information Display Y
or on-screen display.
• Please make certain that you are aware of
any copyright restrictions on any material you
copy. Unauthorized duplication of copyrighted
materials is prohibited by federal law.
Press the Set Button p@ when the name
of the desired channel appears in the Main
Information Display Y and on-screen display, and follow the instructions shown earlier
to adjust the level.
Operation
Repeat the procedure as needed until all channels requiring adjustment have been set. When
all adjustments have been made and no further
adjustments are made for five seconds, the
AVR 320 will return to normal operation.
The channel output for any input may also be
adjusted using the full-OSD on-screen menu
system. First, set the volume to a comfortable
listening level using the Volume Control
ı 40 î. Then, press the OSD Button v
to bring up the MASTER MENU (Figure 1).
Press the ¤ Button n four times until the
on-screen › cursor is next to the CHANNEL
ADJUST line. Press the Set Button p@
to activate the CHANNEL ADJUST menu.
Once the menu appears on your video screen,
first use the ⁄ / ¤ Buttons n to move the
on-screen › cursor so that it is next to the
TEST TONE line. Press the ‹/› Buttons
o 37 so that OFF is highlighted. This will
turn off the test tone and allow you to use your
external test disc or other source material as
the reference. Then, use the ⁄ / ¤ Buttons
n to select the channels to be adjusted. At
each channel position use the ‹/› Buttons
o 37 to change the output level.
Remember, the goal is to have the output level
at each channel be equal when heard at the
listening position.
If you wish to reset all the levels to their original factory default of 0dB offset, press the
⁄ / ¤ Buttons n so that the on-screen cursor is next to the CHANNEL RESET line
and press the ‹/› Buttons o 37 so that
the word ON is highlighted. After the levels
are reset, resume the procedure outlined above
to reset the levels to the desired settings. When
all adjustments are done, press the ⁄/¤
Buttons n to move the on-screen › cursor
so that it is next to RETURN TO MASTER MENU and then press the Set Button
p if you wish to go back to the main menu
to make other adjustments. If you have no
other adjustments to make, press the OSD
Button v to exit the menu system.
NOTE: The output levels may be separately
trimmed for each digital and analog surround
mode. If you wish to have different trim levels for
a specific mode, select that mode and then follow
the instructions in the steps shown earlier.
6-Channel/8-Channel Direct Input
The AVR 320 is equipped for future expansion
through the use of optional, external adapters
for formats that the AVR 320 may not be
capable of processing or to allow connection
to the output of high-resolution optical audio
playback systems such as DVD-Audio or SACD.
When a device with six-channel outputs (5.1
audio) is used, connect the source device to the
6-Channel Direct Inputs ª. When a device
with eight-channel outputs (7.1) audio is used,
connect the additional Surround Back Left (SBL)
and Surround Back Right (SBR) outputs to the
8-Channel Direct Inputs ‚ on the AVR. To
select these inputs, press the 6-Channel/8Channel Direct Button h on the remote
until the desired input configuration appears in
the Main Information Display Y.
Note that when the 6-Channel or 8-Channel
Direct Input is in use, you may not select a surround mode, as the external decoder determines the processing in use. In addition, there
is no signal at the record outputs or bass management when the 6-Channel or 8-Channel
Direct Input is in use.
Memory Backup
This product is equipped with a memory backup system that preserves the system configuration information and tuner presets if the unit is
accidentally unplugged or subjected to a power
outage. This memory will last for approximately
two weeks, after which time all information
must be reentered.
33 OPERATION
Advanced Features
The AVR 320 is equipped with a number of
advanced features that add extra flexibility to
the unit’s operation. While it is not necessary
to use these features to operate the unit, they
provide additional options that you may wish
to use.
Display Brightness
The AVR 320’s Main Information Display
˜ is set at a default brightness level that is
sufficient for viewing in a normally lit room.
However, in some home-theater installations,
you may wish to occasionally lower the brightness of the display, or turn it off completely.
To change the display brightness setting for a
specific listening session, you will need to make

˜ will go dark. Note, however, that the green
LEDs for the Input Indicators ˆ and the
Surround Mode Indicators ˘, as well as
for the Power Indicator 3, will always
remain lit to remind you that the unit is turned
on.
The display brightness may also be changed by
pressing and holding the Set Button @ on
the front for three seconds until the message in
the Main Information Display Y reads
VFD FULL. Within five seconds, press the
front panel Selector Buttons 7$ until the
34 ADVANCED FEATURES
desired brightness display level is shown. At
that point, press the Set Button @ again to
enter the setting.
Once the desired brightness level is selected, it
will remain in effect until it is changed again or
until the unit is turned off.
If you wish to make other adjustments, press
the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the on-screen ›
cursor is next to the desired setting or the
RETURN TO MASTER MENU line and
press the Set Button p. If you have no
other adjustments to make, press the OSD
Button v to exit the menu system.
Turn-On Volume Level
As is the case with most audio/video receivers,
when the AVR 320 is turned on, it will always
return to the volume setting in effect when the
unit was turned off. However, you may prefer to
always have the AVR 320 turn on at a specific
setting, regardless of what was last in use
when the unit was turned off. To change the
default condition so that the same volume level
is always used at turn-on, you will need to
make an adjustment in the ADVANCED
menu. To start the adjustment, press the OSD
Button v to bring the MASTER MENU
(Figure 1) to the screen. Press the ¤ Button
n six times, until the on-screen › cursor is
next to the ADVANCED line. Press the Set
Button p to enter the ADVANCED menu
(Figure 9).
At the ADVANCED menu make certain that
the on-screen › cursor is next to the
VOLUME DEFAULT line by pressing the
⁄/¤ Buttons n as needed. Next, press the
› Button 37 so that the word ON is highlighted in the video display. Next, press the ¤
Button n once so that the on-screen › cursor is next to the DEFAULT VOL SET
line. To set the desired turn-on volume, press
the ‹ / › Buttons o 37 until the desired
volume level is shown on the DEFAULT
VOL SET line. Note that this setting may
NOT be made with the regular volume controls.
NOTE: Since the setting for the turn-on volume
cannot be heard while the setting is being
made, you may wish to determine the setting
before making the adjustment. To do this, listen
to any source and adjust the volume to the
desired level using the regular volume controls
ı 40 î. When the desired volume level to
be used at turn-on is reached, make a note of
the setting as it appears in the lower third of
the video screen or in the Main Information
Display Y. (A typical volume level will appear
as a negative number such as –25dB.) When
making the adjustment, use the ‹/› Buttons
o 37 to enter this setting.
Unlike some of the other adjustments in this
menu, the turn-on volume default will remain
in effect until it is changed or turned off in this
menu, even when the unit is turned off.
If you wish to make other adjustments, press
the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the on-screen ›
cursor is next to the desired setting or the
RETURN TO MASTER MENU line and
press the Set Button p. If you have no
other adjustments to make, press the OSD
Button v to exit the menu system.
Semi-OSD Settings
The semi-OSD system places one-line messages
at the lower third of the video display screen
whenever the Volume, Input Source, Surround
mode or tuner frequency of any of the configuration settings are changed. The semi-OSD system is helpful in that it enables you to have
feedback on any control changes or remote
commands using the video display when it is
difficult to view the front panel displays.
However, you may occasionally prefer to turn
these displays off for a particular listening session. You may also want to adjust the length of
time the displays remain on the screen. Both of
those options are possible with the AVR 320.
To turn off the semi-OSD system, you will need
to make an adjustment in the ADVANCED
menu (Figure 9). To start the adjustment, press
the OSD Button v to bring the MASTER
MENU to the screen. Press the ¤ Button
n six times, until the on-screen ¤ cursor is
next to the ADVANCED line. Press the Set
Button p to enter the ADVANCED
menu.
At the ADVANCED menu, make certain that
the on-screen › cursor is next to the SEMI
OSD DEFAULT line by pressing the ⁄/¤
Buttons n as needed. Next, press the ›
Button 37 so that the word OFF is highlighted in the video display.
Note that this setting is temporary and will
remain active only until it is changed or until
the AVR 320 is turned off. Once the unit is
turned off, the semi-OSD displays will remain
activated, even if they were switched off for the
previous listening session.
Advanced Features
To change the length of time that the semi-OSD
displays remain on the screen, go to the
ADVANCED menu as outlined earlier, and
press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n as needed, until
the on-screen › cursor is next to the SEMI
OSD TIME OUT line. Next, press the ‹ / ›
Buttons o 37 until the desired time in seconds is displayed. Note that unlike most of the
other options in this menu, this is a permanent
setting change, and the time-out entry will
remain in effect until it is changed, even when
the unit is turned off.
If you wish to make other adjustments, press
the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the on-screen ›
cursor is next to the desired setting or the
RETURN TO MASTER MENU line and
press the Set Button p. If you have no
other adjustments to make, press the OSD
Button v to exit the menu system.
Full-OSD Time-Out Adjustment
The FULL OSD menu system is used to simplify the setup and adjustment of the AVR 320,
using a series of on-screen menus. The factory
default setting for these menus leaves them on
the screen for 20 seconds after a period of
inactivity before they disappear from the screen
(Time-Out). Time-Out is a safety measure to
prevent image retention of the menu text in
your monitor or projector, which might happen
if it were left on indefinitely. However, some
viewers may prefer a slightly longer or shorter
period before the Time Out display.
To change the Full-OSD Time-Out, you will need
to make an adjustment in the ADVANCED
menu (Figure 9). To start the adjustment, press
the OSD Button v to bring the MASTER
menu to the screen. Press the ¤ Button n
six times, until the on-screen ¤ cursor is next
to the ADVANCED line. Press the Set

certain that the on-screen › cursor is next to
the FULL OSD TIME OUT line by pressing the ⁄/¤ Buttons n as needed. Next,
press the ‹ / › Buttons o/ 37 until the
desired time is displayed in seconds. Note that
unlike most of the other options in this menu,
this is a permanent setting change, and the
Time-Out entry will remain in effect until it is
changed, even if the unit is turned off.
If you wish to make other adjustments, press
the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the on-screen ›
cursor is next to the desired setting or the
RETURN TO MASTER MENU line and
press the Set Button p. If you have no

Selector Buttons ∫ç∂ in the remote
room.
Programming the Remote
The AVR 320 is equipped with a powerful
remote control that will control not only the
receiver’s functions, but also most popular
brands of audio and video equipment, including CD players, cassette decks, TV sets, cable
boxes, VCRs, satellite receivers and other hometheater equipment. Once the AVR 320’s remote
is programmed with the codes for the products
you own, it is possible to eliminate most other
remotes and replace them with the convenience
of a single, backlit universal remote control.
Programming the Remote
The AVR 320 remote is factory-programmed for
all AVR functions, as well as those of most
Harman Kardon CD changers, DVD players, CD
players and cassette decks. In addition, by following one of the methods below, you may program the remote to operate a wide range of
devices from other manufacturers.
Direct Code Entry
This method is the easiest way to program your
remote to work with different products.
1. Use the tables in the following pages to
determine the three-digit code or codes
that match both the product type (e.g.,
VCR, TV) and the specific brand name. If
there is more than one number for a brand,
make note of the different choices.
2. Turn on the unit you wish to program into
the AVR 320 remote.
3. Press and hold both the Input Selector
e for the product you wish to control
(e.g., VCR, TV) and the Mute button 43
at the same time. When the Program/SPL
Indicator c turns amber and begins
flashing, release the buttons. It is important
that you begin the next step within 20
seconds.
Input Selector will flash three times
before going dark to confirm the entry.
6. Try all of the functions on the remote to
make certain that the product operates
properly. Keep in mind that many manufacturers use a number of different combinations of codes, so it is a good idea to make
certain that not only the Power control, but
the volume, channel and transport controls
work as they should. If functions do not
work properly, you may need to use a different remote code.
7. If a code cannot be entered to turn the
unit off, if the code for your product does
not appear in the tables in this manual, or
if not all functions operate properly, try
programming the remote with the Auto
Search Method.
Auto Search Method
If the unit you wish to include in the AVR 320’s
remote is not listed in the code tables in this
manual or if the code does not seem to operate
properly, you may wish to program the correct
code using the Auto Search method that follows:
1. Turn on the unit that you wish to include in
the AVR 320 remote.
2. Press the Input Selector e for the type
of product to be entered (e.g., VCR, TV) and
the Mute button 43 at the same time.
Hold both buttons until the red light under
the Input Selector e stays lit. Note that
the next step must take place while the red
light is on, and it must begin within 20 seconds after the light appears.
3. Point the AVR 320 remote towards the
unit to be programmed, and press either ⁄
or ¤ button n. Each press will send out a
series of codes from the remote’s built-in
database. When the unit being programmed
turns off, release ⁄ /¤ button n, as that
is your indication that the correct code is
in use.
4. Point the AVR 320’s remote towards the unit
to be programmed, and enter the first threedigit code number using the Numeric Keys
r. If the unit turns off, the correct code
has been entered. Press the Input Selector
e again, and note that the red light will
flash three times before going dark to confirm the entry.
4. Press the Input Selector e, and note
that the red light under the Input Selector
will flash three times before going dark to
confirm the entry.
5. If the device to be programmed in does
NOT turn off, continue to enter three-digit
code numbers until the equipment turns off.
At this point, the correct code has been
entered. Press the Input Selector e
again and note that the red light under the
5. Try all of the functions on the remote to
make certain that the product operates.
Keep in mind that many manufacturers use
a number of different combinations of
codes, and it is a good idea to make certain
that not only the Power control works, but
also the volume, channel and transport controls, as appropriate. If all functions do not
work properly, you may need to AutoSearch for a different code, or enter a code
via the Direct Code Entry method.
Code Readout
When the code has been entered using the
Auto Search method, it is always a good idea to
find out the exact code so that it may be easily
reentered if necessary. You may also read the
codes to verify which device has been programmed to a specific Control Selector button.
1. Press and hold both the Input Selector
e for the device you wish to find the
code for and the Mute button 43 at the
same time. Note that the Program/SPL
Indicator c will initally turn amber.
Release the buttons and begin the next
step within 20 seconds.
2. Press the Set button p. The
Program/SPL Indicator c will then
blink green in a sequence that corresponds to
the three-digit code, with a one-second
pause between each digit. Count the number
of blinks between each pause to determine
the digit of the code. One blink is the number
1, two blinks is the number 2, and so forth.
Ten blinks are used to indicate a “0.”
Example: One blink, followed by a one-second
pause, followed by six blinks, followed by a
one-second pause, followed by ten blinks indicates that the code has been set to 160.

Learning Codes
In addition to using codes from the remote’s
internal code library, the AVR 320’s remote is
able to “learn”codes from remotes that may
not be in the code library. In addition, you may
use this function to “learn over” the codes
from a preprogrammed device to add functions
not included in the preprogrammed codes. To
learn or transfer codes from an IR remote to
the AVR 320’s remote, follow these steps:
37 PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE
Programming the Remote
1. Place the front of the original remote with
the code being sent so that it is facing the
IR Transmitter Window b on the
AVR 320 remote “head-to-head.” The
remotes should be between one and three
inches apart.
2. Select the button on the remote that you
wish to use as the device selector for the
codes about to be entered. This may be any
of the Input Selectors e.
To erase a single learned code from within a single device’s settings, follow these steps:
1. Press and hold both the Input Selector
efg within which the individual button to be erased has been programmed and
the Learn Button 42 .
2. When the red LED under the Input Selector
turns red and the Program/SPL Indicator
c flashes amber, release the buttons.
3. Press the Input Selector e button
chosen and the Learn Button 42 at the
same time. Hold these buttons until the
Program/SPL Indicator c flashes amber
and the light under the device selector button turns red. Release the buttons.
3. Press and release the Input Selector
efg again for the device within
which the individual button to be erased has
been programmed.
4. Press the button on the AVR 320 remote
that you wish to program. Note that the
Program/SPL Indicator c will stop
flashing.
5. Press and release the individual button for
which the code is to be erased. The
Program/SPL Indicator c will blink
green two times and then return to amber.
5. Within five seconds, press and hold the button on the original remote that you wish to
“teach” into the AVR 320 remote. When the
Program/SPL Indicator c turns green
three times, release the button. Note that
the Program Indicator will then begin to
flash amber again.
6. To erase other buttons within the same
device, press them as noted in Step 5.
NOTE: If the Program/SPL Indicator c
turns red during Step 5 or 6, the programming was not successful. Repeat the steps to
see if the code will “take.”
6. Repeat Steps 4 though 6 for each button on
the source remote that you wish to transfer
to the AVR 320 remote.
7. Once all codes have been transferred from
the original source remote to the AVR 320
remote, press the Learn Button 42 .
8. Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for any additional
remotes you wish to “teach” into the
AVR 320 Remote.
Erasing Learned Codes
The AVR 320’s remote allows you to remove or
erase, the code learned into a single button for a

Macro Programming
Macros enable you to easily repeat frequently
used combinations of commands with the press
of a single button on the AVR 320’s remote
control. Once programmed, a macro will send
out up to 19 different remote codes in a predetermined sequential order enabling you to automate the process of turning on your system,
changing devices, or other common tasks. The
AVR 320’s remote can store up to five separate
macro command sequences: one that is
associated with the Power On Button d
and four more that are accessed by pressing the
Macro Buttons 31 .
1. Press the Mute Button 43 and the

commands you wish to erase.
2. Note that the Program/SPL Indicator
c will flash amber, and the LED under
the AVR Selector f will turn red.
3. Within ten seconds, press the Surround
Mode Selector/Channel Down
Button k.
4. The red LED under the AVR Selector will
go out, and the Program/SPL Indicator
c will turn green and flash three times
before it goes out.
5. When the Program/SPL Indicator c
goes out, the Macro has been erased.
Programmed Device Functions
Once the AVR 320’s remote has been programmed for the codes of other devices, press
the appropriate Input Selector e to change
the remote from controlling the AVR 320 to
controlling the additional product. When you
press any one of the selectors, it will briefly flash
in red to indicate that you have changed the
device being controlled.
When operating a device other than the
AVR 320, the controls may not correspond
exactly to the function printed on the remote
or button. Some commands, such as the volume
control, are the same as they are with the
AVR 320. Other buttons will change their
function so that they correspond to a secondary
label on the remote. For example, the Sleep
and Surround mode selector buttons also function as the Channel Up and Channel Down
buttons when operating most TV sets, VCRs or
cable boxes. The Channel Up/Down indication is
printed directly on the remote. For many standard CD players, cassette decks, VCRs and DVD
functions, the standard function icons are printed on top of the buttons.
For some products, however, the function of a
particular button does not follow the command
printed on the remote. In order to see which
function a button controls, consult the Function
List tables printed on page 43. To use those
tables, first check the type of device being controlled (e.g., TV, VCR). Next, look at the remote
control diagram pictured at the left. Note that
each button has a number on it.
To find out what function a particular button
has for a specific device, find the button number on the Function List and then look in the
column for the device you are controlling. For
example, button number 45 is the Direct button
for the AVR 320, but it is the “Favorite” button
for many cable television boxes and satellite
receivers. Button number 31 is the Delay button for the AVR 320, but the Open/Close button for CD players.
NOTE: That the numbers used to describe the
button functions at the left for the purposes of
describing how a button operates are a different set of numbers than those used in the rest
of this manual to describe the button functions
for the AVR 320.
39 PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE
Programming the Remote
Notes on Using the AVR 320 Remote
With Other Devices.
• Manufacturers may use different code sets
for the same product category. For that reason, it is important that you check to see
whether the code set you have entered operates as many controls as possible. If it
appears that only a few functions operate,
check to see whether another code set will
work with more buttons.
• When a button is pressed on the AVR 320
remote, the red light under the Input
Selector e for the product being operated should flash briefly. If the Device Control
Selector flashes for some but not all buttons
for a particular product, it does NOT indicate
a problem with the remote but rather that
no function is programmed for the button
being pushed.
Volume Punch-Through
The AVR 320’s remote may be programmed to
operate the Volume Control 40 and Mute
43 functions of either the TV or the AVR 320
in conjunction with any of the devices controlled by the remote. For example, since the
AVR 320 will likely be used as the sound system for TV viewing, you may wish to have the
AVR 320’s volume activated, although the
remote is set to run the TV. Either the AVR 320
or TV volume control may be associated with
any of the remote’s devices. To program the
remote for Volume Punch-Through, follow these
steps:
1. Press the Input Selector e for the unit
you wish to have associated with the volume
control and the Mute Button 43 at the
same time until the red light appears under
the Input Selector e and note that the
Program/SPL Indicator c will flash
amber.
2. Press the Volume Up Button 40 and
note that the Program/SPL Indicator c
will stop flashing and stay amber.
3. Press either the AVR Selector f or the
Input Selector e, depending on which
system’s volume control you wish to have
attached for the punch-through mode. The
Program/SPL Indicator c will blink
green three times and then go out to confirm
the data entry.
40 PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE
Example: To have the AVR 320’s volume
control activated even though the remote is
set to control the TV, first press the
Video/TV Input Selector e and the
Mute Button 43 at the same time. Next,
press the Volume Up Button 40 , followed by the AVR Selector f.
NOTE: Should you wish to return the remote to
the original configuration after entering a
Volume Punch-Through, you will need to repeat
the steps shown above. However, press the same
Input Selector in Steps 1 and 3.
Channel Control Punch-Through
The AVR 320’s remote may be programmed to
operate so that the channel control function for
either the TV, cable or satellite receiver used in
your system may be used in conjunction with
one of the other devices controlled by the
remote. For example, while using and controlling
the VCR, you may wish to change channels on a
cable box or satellite receiver without having to
change the device selected by the AVR 320 or
the remote. To program the remote for Channel
Control Punch-Through, follow these steps:
1. Press the Input Selector Button e for
the device you wish to have the channel control associated with and the Mute Button
43 at the same time until the red light
appears under the Input Selector e and
the Program/ SPL Indicator c flashes
amber.
2. Press the Volume Down Button 40 . The
Program/SPL Indicator c will stop flashing and stay amber.
3. Press and release the Input Selector
Button e for the device that will be used
to change the channels. The Program/SPL
Indicator c will blink green three times
and then go out to confirm the data entry.
Example: To control the channels using your
Cable Box or Satellite Receiver while the
remote is set to control the VCR, first press
the VID 1/VCR Input Selector Button e
and the Mute Button 43 at the same
time. Next, release them and press the
Volume Down Button 40 , followed by the
VID 2/TV Input Selector Button e.
NOTE: To remove the Channel Control PunchThrough and return the remote to its original
configuration, repeat the steps shown in the
example above. However, press the VID 1/VCR
Input Selector in Steps 1 and 3.
Transport Control Punch-Through
The AVR 320’s remote may be programmed to
operate so that the Transport Control
Functions ` (Play, Stop, Fast Forward,
Rewind, Pause and Record) for a VCR, DVD or
CD will operate in conjunction with one of the
other devices controlled by the remote. For
example, while using and controlling the TV, you
may wish to start or stop your VCR or DVD without having to change the device selected by the
AVR 320 or the remote. To program the remote
for Transport Control Punch-Through, follow
these steps:
1. Press the Input Selector e for the device
you wish to have the channel control associated with and the Mute Button 43 at the
same time until the red light appears under
the Input Selector e and the Program/
SPL Indicator c flashes amber.
2. Press the Play Button `. The Program/
SPL Indicator c will stop flashing and
stay amber.
3. Press and release the Input Selector
Button e for the device that will be used
to change the channels. The Program/SPL
Indicator c will blink green three times
and then go out to confirm the data entry.
Example: To control the transport of a DVD
player while the remote is set to control the
TV, first press the VID 2/TV Input Selector
Button eand the Mute Button 43 at
the same time. Next, release them and press
the Play Button `, followed by the DVD
Input Selector Button e.
NOTE: To remove the Channel Control PunchThrough and return the remote to its original
configuration, repeat the steps shown in the
example above. However, press the VID 2/TV
Input Selector in Steps 1 and 3.
NOTE: Before programming the remote for
Volume, Channel or Transport Punch-Through,
make certain that any programming needed for
the specific TV, CD, DVD, Cable or Satellite
Receivers has been completed.
Programming the Remote
Reassigning Device Control
Selectors
Although each Input Selector e is normally
assigned to the category of product shown on
the remote, it is possible to reassign one of
these buttons to operate a second device of
another type. For example, if you have two VCRs
but no satellite receiver, you may program the
“SAT” button to operate a second VCR. Before
following the normal programming steps for
either Three-Digit entry or Auto Search code
entry, you must first reassign the button with the
following steps:
1. Press the Input Selector e you wish to
reassign and the Mute Button 43 at the
same time until the red light appears under
the Input Selector e and the Program/
SPL Indicator c flashes amber.
1. Press any of the Input Selector Buttons
e and the ”O“ Numeric Key r at the
same time until the Program/SPL Indicator
c begins to flash amber.
2. Press the ”3“ Numeric Key r three
times.
3. The red LED under the Input Selector e
will go out and the Program/SPL Indicator
c will stop flashing and turn green.
4. The Program/SPL Indicator c will remain
green until the remote is reset. Note that this
may take a while, depending on how many
commands are in the memory and need to be
erased.
5. When the Program/SPL Indicator c goes
out, the remote has been reset to the factory
settings.
2. Press the Input Selector e for the device
you wish to program into the reassigned
button.
3. Enter the three-digit code for the specific
model you wish the reassigned button to
operate.
4. Press the same Input Selector e pressed
in Step 1 once again to store the selection.
The red LED under the re-assigned Input
Selector will flash three times and then go
out.
Example: To use the CBL/SAT button to
operate a second VCR, first press the
CBL/SAT Input Selector e and the
Mute Button 43 at the same time until
the red light glows under the CBL/SAT e
button. Press the VCR e Button, followed
by the three-digit code for the specific model
you wish to control. Finally, press the
CBL/SAT Button e again.
Resetting the Remote Memory
As you add components to your home-theater
system, occasionally you may wish to totally
reprogram the remote control without the confusion of any commands, macros or ”PunchThrough“ programming that you may have
done. To do this, it is possible to reset the
remote to the original factory defaults and command codes by following these steps. Note,
however, that once the remote is reset, all commands or codes that you have entered will be
erased and will need to be re-entered:

first put the unit in Standby by pressing the
System Power Control Button 2. Next,
press and hold the Tone Mode 8 and the
FM Mode Selector ^ buttons for three
seconds.
To correct this problem, first unplug the unit
from the AC wall outlet and wait at least three
minutes. After the pause, reconnect the AC
power cord and check the unit’s operation. If
the system still malfunctions, a system reset
may clear the problem.
The unit will turn on automatically and display
the RESET message in the Main
Information Display Y. Note that once you
have cleared the memory in this manner, it is
necessary to reestablish all system configuration
settings and tuner presets.
