Important Safety Information and Place the AVR
Introduction
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Thank you for choosing this Harman Kardon product!
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
For more than fifty years, the Harman Kardon mission has been to share a passion for music
and entertainment, using leading-edge technology to achieve premium performance.
Sidney Harman and Bernard Kardon invented the receiver, a single component designed
to simplify home entertainment without compromising performance. Over the years,
Harman Kardon products have become easier to use while offering more features and
sounding better than ever.
The AVR 700 has been designed for use with 120-volt alternating current (AC). The
AVR 70 and AVR 70C have been designed for use with 220 – 240-volt AC. Connection
to a line voltage other than that for which your AVR is intended can create a safety
and fire hazard, and may damage the unit. If you have any questions about the voltage
requirements for your specific model or about the line voltage in your area, contact your
selling dealer before plugging the unit into a wall outlet.
The AVR 70, AVR 700 and AVR 70C 5.1-channel digital audio/video receivers (AVRs)
continue this tradition with some of the most advanced audio and video processing
capabilities yet and a wealth of listening and viewing options.

water or any metal object such as a paper clip, wire or staple accidentally falls inside
the unit, disconnect it from the AC power source immediately, and consult an authorized
service center.
CATV or Antenna Grounding (AVR 700)
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to this product, be certain that it is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and static charges.
Section 810 of the United States National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and
requirements of the grounding electrode.
NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER: This reminder is provided to call the CATV (cable
TV) system installer’s attention to article 820-40 of the NEC, which provides guidelines
for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected
to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as possible.
Place the AVR
• Place the AVR on a firm and level surface. Be certain that the surface and any
mounting hardware can support the AVR’s weight.
• Provide proper space above and below the AVR for ventilation. Recommended
clearance distances are 30cm above the unit, 10cm behind the unit and 20cm on
each side of the unit.
• If you install the AVR in a cabinet or other enclosed area, provide cooling air within the
cabinet. Under some circumstances, a fan may be required.
• Do not obstruct the ventilation slots on the top of the AVR or place objects directly
over them.
• Do not place the AVR directly on a carpeted surface.
• Do not place the AVR in moist or humid locations, in extremely hot or cold locations,

AVR 700/AVR 70/AVR 70C
Introduction to Home Theater
Place Your Speakers
This introductory section will help you to familiarize yourself with some basic concepts
unique to multichannel surround-sound AVRs, which will make it easier for you to set up
and operate your AVR.
Determine the locations for your system’s speakers according to their manufacturer’s
directions and the layout of your listening room. Use the illustration below as a guide for
5.1-channel systems.
Typical Home Theater System
To create the most realistic surround-sound environment possible, you should place
your speakers in a circle with the listening position at its center. You should angle each
speaker so it directly faces the listening position. Use the diagram below as a guide.
A home theater typically includes an audio/video receiver (AVR), which controls the system
and supplies amplification for the loudspeakers; a disc player; a source component for
television broadcasts (cable box, satellite dish AVR, HDTV tuner or antenna connected to
the TV); a TV or video display; and multiple loudspeakers.

The main benefit of a home theater system is its ability to produce “surround sound.”
Surround sound uses multiple speakers and amplifier channels to immerse you in the
audio/video presentation for a dramatically increased sense of realism.
Your AVR can have up to five main speakers connected directly to it, plus a subwoofer.
Each main speaker is powered by its own amplifier channel inside the AVR. A system
with more than two speakers is called a multichannel system. The different main speaker
types in a home theater system are:
SL
SR
• F ront Left and Right: The front left and right speakers are used as in a 2-channel
system. In many surround-sound modes, these speakers are secondary, while the
main action, especially dialogue, is reproduced by the center speaker.
• Center: When you are watching movies and television programs, the center speaker
reproduces most of the dialogue and other soundtrack information that occurs on the
screen, anchoring it with the picture. When you are listening to a musical program,
the center speaker helps to create a seamless front soundstage, creating a more
realistic “you-are-there” listening experience.
• Surround Left and Right: The surround left and right speakers produce ambient
sounds that help create a realistic and immersive surround-sound environment. They
also help recreate directional sound effects such as aircraft flyovers.
Many people expect the surround speakers to play as loudly as the front speakers.
Although you will calibrate all of the speakers in your system to sound equally loud
at the listening position, most artists use the surround speakers for ambient effects
only, and they create their programs to steer relatively little sound to these speakers.
•S
ubwoofer: A subwoofer is designed to play only the lowest frequencies (the deep
bass). It augments smaller, limited-range main speakers that are usually used for
the other channels. Many digital-format programs, such as movies recorded in Dolby
Digital, contain a low-frequency effects (LFE) channel that is directed to the subwoofer.
The LFE channel packs the punch of a rumbling train or airplane, or the power of an
explosion, adding realism and excitement to your home theater. Some people use two
subwoofers for additional power and for even distribution of the sound.
There are different theories as to the best way to present surround sound and to distribute
the individual channel information to the surround-sound system’s speakers. A variety
of algorithms have been developed in an effort to recreate the way we hear sounds in
the real world, resulting in a rich variety of options. Several companies have developed
different surround-sound technologies, all of which can be accurately reproduced by
your AVR:
•D
olby Laboratories: Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II,
Dolby Pro Logic.
• DTS: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio , DTS, DTS 96/24 ,
DTS Neo: 6.
™
™
•H
ARMAN International: Analog Surround Modes (Theater Hall, Stadium, Club,
Arena).
•S
tereo Modes: 2-channel stereo and 5-channel stereo.
Appendix Table A4, on page 22, contains detailed explanations of the different surroundsound options available on your AVR. Digital surround-sound modes, such as Dolby
Digital and DTS systems, are available only with specially encoded programs, such
as those available via HDTV, DVD and Blu-ray Disc media and digital cable or satellite
television. Other surround modes may be used with digital and analog signals to create a
different surround presentation or to use a different number of speakers. Surround-mode
selection depends upon the number of speakers in your system, the programs you are
watching or listening to, and your personal tastes.
8
Place the center speaker either on top of, below or mounted on the wall above or below
the TV or video-display screen. Place the front left and right speakers along the circle,
about 30 degrees from the center speaker and angled toward the listener.
Place the front left, front right and center speakers at the same height, preferably at
about the same height as the listener’s ears. The center speaker should be no more than
2 feet (0.6m) above or below the left/right speakers. If you’re using only two speakers
with your AVR, place them in the front left and front right positions.
Placing the Surround Speakers
You should place the left and right surround speakers approximately 110 degrees from
the center speaker, slightly behind and angled toward the listener. Alternatively, you can
place them behind the listener, with each surround speaker facing the opposite-side
front speaker. You should place the surround speakers 2 feet – 6 feet (0.6m – 1.8m)
higher than the listener’s ears.
NOTE: Your AVR will sound its best when the same model or brand of
loudspeaker is used for all positions.
Surround Modes
™
Placing the Left, Center and Right Speakers
Placing the Subwoofer
Because a room’s shape and volume can have a dramatic effect on a subwoofer’s
performance, it is best to experiment with placement so that you will find the location
that produces the best results in your particular listening room. With that in mind, these
rules will help you get started:
• Placing the subwoofer next to a wall generally will increase the amount of bass in
the room.
• Placing the subwoofer in a corner generally will maximize the amount of bass in the
room.
• In many rooms, placing the subwoofer along the same plane as the left and right
speakers can produce the best integration between the sound of the subwoofer and
that of the left and right speakers.
• In some rooms, the best performance could even result from placing the subwoofer
behind the listening position.
A good way to determine the best location for the subwoofer is by temporarily placing it in
the listening position and playing music with strong bass content. Move around to various
locations in the room while the system is playing (putting your ears where the subwoofer
would be placed), and listen until you find the location where the bass performance is
best. Place the subwoofer in that location.

Types of Home Theater System Connections
Subwoofer Connections
There are different types of audio and video connections used to connect the AVR to your
speakers, your TV or video display, and your source devices. The Consumer Electronics
Association has established the CEA® color-coding standard.
The subwoofer is a speaker dedicated to reproducing only the low (bass) frequencies,
which require more power. To obtain the best results, most speaker manufacturers offer
powered subwoofers that contain their own amplifiers. Use a single RCA audio cable
(not included) to make a line-level (non-amplified) connection from the AVR’s Subwoofer
connector to a corresponding input jack on the subwoofer.

Speaker Connections
Speaker cables carry an amplified signal from the AVR’s speaker terminals to each
loudspeaker. Each cable contains two wire conductors, or leads, that are differentiated
in some way, such as with colors or stripes.
The differentiation helps you maintain proper polarity, without which your system’s lowfrequency performance can suffer. Each speaker is connected to the AVR’s speakeroutput terminals using two wires, one positive (+) and one negative (–). Always connect
the positive terminal on the speaker, which is usually colored red, to the positive terminal
on the AVR, which is colored as indicated in the Connection Color Guide Table, above.
The negative terminals on the speakers and the AVR are black.
Your AVR uses binding-post speaker terminals that can accept bare-wire cables or
banana plugs. Bare-wire cables are installed as shown below:
1. Unscrew Cap
2. Insert Bare Wire
3. Tighten Cap
Banana plugs are inserted into the hole in the middle of the terminal cap, as shown
below:
A. Tighten Cap
Although the AVR’s purple subwoofer output looks similar to a full-range analog audio
jack, it is filtered so that only the low frequencies pass through it. Don’t connect this
output to any device other than a subwoofer.
Source Device Connections
Audio and video signals originate in source devices (components where a playback
signal originates) such as your Blu-ray Disc or DVD player, CD player, DVR (digital video
recorder) or other recorder, tape deck, game console, cable or satellite television tuner,
MP3 player or a device docked in the AVR’s USB port. The AVR’s FM/AM tuner also counts
as a source, even though no external connectors are needed other than the AVR’s FM and
AM antennas. Separate connectors are required for the audio and video portions of the
source device’s signal, except for digital HDMI connectors. The types of connectors you
use will depend upon the capabilities of the source device and of your TV or video display.
Digital Audio Connections – HDMI
There are two types of audio connections – digital and analog. Digital audio signals are
required for listening to sources encoded with digital surround modes, such as Dolby
Digital and DTS, or for uncompressed PCM digital audio. Your AVR has three types of
digital audio connectors: HDMI, coaxial and optical. Do not use more than one type of
digital audio connector for each source device. However, it’s okay to make both analog
and digital audio connections to the same source.
Your AVR is equipped with four rear-panel HDMI input connectors and one HDMI monitor
output connector. HDMI technology enables digital audio and video information to be
carried using a single cable, delivering the highest quality picture and sound. If your TV
or video-display device has an HDMI input connector, make a single HDMI connection
from each source device to the AVR. Usually, a separate digital audio connection is not
required.
The AVR’s HDMI Monitor Output connector contains an Audio Return Channel (ARC) that
carries a digital audio signal from your TV or video display back to the AVR. It allows
you to listen to HDMI devices that are connected directly to your TV (such as an Internet
connection) without making an additional connection from the device to the AVR. The
ARC signal is active when the TV source is selected. See Additional Setup Menu Items,
on page 15, for more information.
The HDMI connector is shaped for easy plug-in (see illustration, below), and HDMI
cable runs are limited to about 10 feet (3m). If your video display has a DVI input and is
HDCP-compliant, use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter (not included), and make a separate audio
connection.
B. Insert Banana Connector
into Hole in Cap
Always connect the colored (+) terminal on the AVR to the (+) terminal on the speaker
(usually red), and the black (–) terminal on the AVR to the (–) terminal on the speaker
(usually black).
IMPORTANT: Make sure the ( + ) and ( – ) bare wires do not touch each other or
the other terminal. Touching wires can cause a short circuit that can damage your
AVR or amplifier.
Digital Audio Connections – Coaxial
Coaxial digital audio jacks are usually color-coded orange. Although they look like
standard RCA-type analog jacks, you should not connect coaxial digital audio outputs to
analog inputs or vice versa.

AVR 700/AVR 70/AVR 70C
Digital Audio Connections – Optical
Radio Connections
Optical digital audio connectors are normally covered by a shutter to protect them from
dust. The shutter opens as the cable is inserted. Optical input connectors are color-coded
using a black shutter.
Your AVR uses separate terminals for the included FM and AM antennas. The FM antenna
uses a 75-ohm F-connector.
Analog Audio Connections
The AM antenna connector uses spring-clip terminals. After assembling the antenna
as shown below, press the levers to open the connectors, insert the bare wires into the
openings, and release the levers to secure the wires.
Two-channel analog connections require a stereo audio cable, with one connector for
the left channel (white) and one for the right channel (red). These two connectors are
attached to each other.
USB Port
For source devices that have both digital and analog audio outputs, you may make both
connections.
The analog connections also feed the Analog Record Output connectors. You may record
materials from Blu-ray Disc recordings, DVDs or other copy-protected sources using only
analog connections. Remember to comply with all copyright laws if you choose to make
a copy for your own personal use.
The AVR can play MP3 and WMA audio files from a USB device inserted into the USB port.
Insert the device into the USB port oriented so it fits all the way into the port. You may
insert or remove the device at any time – there is no installation or ejection procedure.
Video Connections
Many source devices output both audio and video signals (e.g., Blu-ray Disc, DVD
player, cable television box, HDTV tuner, satellite box, VCR, DVR). In addition to an audio
connection as described above, make a video connection for each of these source
devices. Make only one type of video connection for each device.
Digital Video Connections
If you have already connected a source device to one of the AVR’s HDMI input connectors,
you have automatically made a video connection for that device, since the HDMI cable
carries both digital audio and digital video signals.
Analog Video Connections – Composite Video
Composite video is the basic connection most commonly available. Both the chrominance
(color) and the luminance (intensity) components of the video signal are transmitted
using a single cable. The jack is usually color-coded yellow and looks like an analog
audio jack. Do not connect a composite video jack to an analog audio or coaxial digital
audio jack, or vice versa.

IMPORTANT: Do not connect a PC or other USB host/controller to the AVR’s USB
port, or you may damage both the AVR and the other device.

Source devices are components where a playback signal originates, such as a
Blu-ray Disc or DVD player, or a cable, satellite or HDTV tuner. Your AVR has several
different types of input connectors for your audio and video source devices: HDMI,
composite video, optical digital audio, coaxial digital audio and analog audio.
Each of your AVR’s source buttons is assigned to an HDMI connector or an analog audio
input connector (listed in the “AVR Source Button/Analog Audio Connector” column of
the table below).The digital inputs are not assigned to any specific sets of analog inputs.
Once you select a source device you can use the remote control’s Audio Input Select
(DIGITAL) button to select the specific audio input connection (HDMI, coaxial digital,
optical digital, analog) that you want to listen to. (Note: You cannot select an audio input
connection for the FM/AM or USB source buttons.)
As you connect your various source components, fill out the “Source Device Connected”
and “Digital Audio Input Connector Used” columns in the following table – it will make it
easy to keep track of which devices you have connected to which connectors. Note: The
AVR remote is pre-programmed to control a Harman/Kardon Blu-ray Disc or DVD player

Optical digital audio devices
If any of your source devices have HDMI connectors, using those connectors will provide
the best possible video and audio performance quality. Since the HDMI cable carries
both digital video and digital audio signals, you do not have to make any additional audio
connections for devices you connect via HDMI cables.
If your source devices have optical digital outputs, connect them to the AVR’s Optical
Digital Audio connectors. NOTE: Make only one type of digital connection (HDMI, optical
or coaxial) from each device.

Unless you will not be using the AVR for an extended period of time, leave the Main Power
switch set to “On.” When the Main Power switch is turned off, any settings you have
programmed will be preserved for up to two weeks.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If the PROTECT message ever appears in the Message
display, turn off the AVR and unplug it. Check all speaker wires for a short
circuit (“+” and “–” wires touching). If none is found, bring the unit to an
authorized Harman Kardon service center for inspection and repair before
using it again.
4. Select “Speaker Settings.” The Speaker Settings menu will appear.
Using the On-Screen Menu System
Although it’s possible to configure the AVR using only the remote and the front-panel
Message display, it is easier to use the on-screen menu system.
To access the menu system, turn on your TV and select the TV’s composite video input
where you connected the AVR in Connect Your TV or Video Display, on page 11.
Press the remote control’s SETUP button. The AVR’s on-screen display (OSD) System
Setup menu will appear on the TV.
5. Use the remote’s left and right arrow buttons to select OFF, SMALL or LARGE for the
Front, Center and Surround speaker positions, depending on the speakers you have
connected to the receiver.
OFF: Select this setting if you have not connected a speaker in that position (not available
for the Front speakers).
SMALL: Select this setting if the speaker is not capable of producing clean, deep bass
energy at output levels that match those produced by a powered subwoofer. All bass
below the crossover frequency (see Step 6, below) in that channel is removed from that
speaker and is sent to the subwoofer (or to the Front speakers if Subwoofer is set to NO).
Most speakers (unless they are large and powerful) should be considered SMALL.
The System Setup menu consists of five submenus: Speaker Set, HDMI Set, Parameter,
Auto Power Control and Speaker On/Off.
Use the Up/Down/Left/Right buttons on the remote to navigate the menu system, and
press the OK button to select a menu or setting line, or to enter a new setting.
The current menu, setting line or setting will appear in the front-panel Message display,
as well as on screen.
LARGE: Select this setting if the speaker is capable of producing clean, deep bass energy
at output levels that match those produced by a powered subwoofer. All bass in that
channel is sent to that speaker.
NOTE: If your system has a subwoofer and you set the Front speakers to LARGE, the
subwoofer may not output audio except for Dolby Digital- and DTS-encoded program
material that contains LFE channel information. If you set your Front speakers to LARGE
and you want your subwoofer to reproduce bass from all program material, set the
Subwoofer to PLUS (see below).
To return to the previous menu, press the remote’s BACK button. To exit the menu
system, press the SETUP button.
For Subwoofer, select YES (if your system has a subwoofer), NO (if your system does not
have a subwoofer), or PLUS (if your system has a subwoofer, you set your Front speakers
to LARGE and you want your subwoofer to reproduce bass from all program material).
Follow the instructions in this Set Up the AVR section to configure your home theater
system. You may return to these menus at any time to make additional adjustments.
When you’re finished, record your settings in Table A2 of the Appendix, on page 21, then
press the remote control’s BACK button to return to the Speaker Setting menu.
Before you begin initial setup, all loudspeakers, a video display and all source devices
should be connected to the AVR. You should be able to turn on the AVR and view the
System Setup menu when you press the SETUP button. If necessary, reread the Making
Connections section and the beginning of this section before continuing.
6. (Note: If your system does not have a subwoofer, skip to step 7.) Press the BACK button
and select “Crossover.” The Crossover menu will appear
14
AVR 700/AVR 70/AVR 70C
Consult the technical specifications for your system’s main left and right speakers and
locate the frequency response, usually given as a range, e.g., 80Hz – 20kHz (±3dB).
Note the lowest frequency that the speakers are capable of playing (80Hz in the above
example). NOTE: This frequency is not the same as the crossover frequency that may
also be listed in the specifications.
Use the remote’s left and right arrow buttons to select the crossover frequency that
most closely matches the low frequency specification that you noted above. The AVR
will divide the source signal at this crossover point, will send all information above the
crossover point to your system’s speakers, and all information below the crossover point
to the subwoofer. This way, each loudspeaker in your system will perform at its best,
delivering a more powerful and enjoyable sound experience. Record the setting in Table
A2 of the Appendix, on page 21.
7. Press the BACK button and select “Speaker Distance.” The Speaker Distance menu
will appear.
Set Up the AVR, continued
Notes on Setting Subwoofer Volume:
• Sometimes the ideal subwoofer volume setting for music is too loud for films, while
the ideal setting for films is too quiet for music. When setting the subwoofer volume,
listen to both music and films with strong bass content and find a “middle ground”
volume level that works for both.
• If your subwoofer always seems too loud or too quiet, you may want to place it in
a different location. Placing the subwoofer in a corner will always tend to increase
its bass output, while placing it away from any walls or corners will always tend to
lessen its bass output.
13. When you’re finished, record the settings in Table A3 of the Appendix, on page 21,
then press the remote’s SETUP button to turn off the on-screen menus.
Additional Setup Menu Items
You can also adjust the following settings:
HDMI Set: Selecting ARC/CEC On will send audio from the TV to the AVR via the HDMI
Audio Return Channel (ARC) connection (which is in the HDMI cable connecting the AVR
to the TV). This way, whenever you’re watching a source that is connected directly to
your TV (such as an Internet connection), you can listen to the sound through the AVR by
selecting TV as the AVR source device. Selecting On also allows the communication of
control information among the HDMI devices in your system (CEC).
Audio Settings: Selecting Audio Settings allows you to adjust the following audio
settings:
8. Measure the distance from each speaker in your system to the listening position.
Record the distances in Table A3 of the Appendix, on page 21.
9. Use the remote’s left and right arrow buttons to change the distance setting for each
speaker so it matches the distance you wrote down in step 8. When you’re finished,
press the remote control’s BACK button to return to the Speaker Setting menu.
10. Select “Channel Level.” The Channel Level menu will appear. Use the remote’s left
and right arrow buttons to set Test Tone to “Manual” and press the remote’s OK
button. After the on-screen countdown you will hear test noise through the front left
speaker.
• Night Mode works with specially encoded Dolby® Digital discs or broadcasts,
compressing the audio so that louder passages are reduced in volume to avoid
disturbing others, while dialogue remains intelligible. Press the left/right arrow
buttons to advance through the following DRC (Dynamic Range Control) settings:
Off: No compression is applied. Loud passages in the program remain as they were
recorded.
Mid: Loud passages in the program are reduced moderately in volume.
Max: Loud passages in the program are reduced more in volume.
Auto: Automatically compresses the audio a specific amount in response to
instructions encoded in the Dolby Digital program.
• PLII Music: Additional adjustments are avalable that allow you to fine-tune the Dolby
Pro Logic II Music surround mode’s performance for your listening room and personal
taste:
11. Sit in the main listening position and adjust the AVR’s volume control so the test noise
is moderately loud. Note the volume of the test noise through the first speaker. Press
the remote’s down arrow button to advance the test noise to each of your system’s
speakers and note the volume level of the noise in each speaker.
12. As you advance the test noise through the speakers, use the remote’s left and right
arrow buttons to adjust the volumes of the channels until all of them play at the
same volume.
Notes on Setting Speaker Volumes in Home Theater Systems:
While setting your system’s individual speaker volume levels is ultimately up to your
personal taste, here are some ideas you may find helpful:
• F or films and video-music programs, your overall goal should be to create an
enveloping, realistic sound field that draws you into the film or music program
without drawing your attention away from the action on the screen.
• F or multichannel music recordings, some music producers will create a sound field
that places the musicians all around you; others will create a sound field that places
the musicians in front of you, with more subtle ambience in the surround speakers
(as you would experience in a concert hall).
• In most 5.1-channel film soundtracks, the surround speakers are not intended to be
as loud or as active as the front speakers. Adjusting the surround speakers so they
are always as loud as the front speakers could make dialogue difficult to understand
and will make some sound effects sound unrealistically loud.
Panorama: With the Panorama mode turned on, some of the sound from the front
speakers is moved to the surround speakers, creating an enveloping “wraparound”
effect. Each press of the left or right arrow buttons toggles the setting On or Off.
Center Width: This setting affects how vocals sound through the three front speakers.
A lower number focuses the vocal information tightly on the center channel. Higher
numbers (up to 7) broaden the vocal soundstage. Use the left/right arrow buttons to
adjust this setting.
Dimension: This setting affects the depth of the surround presentation, allowing you
to “move” the sound toward the front or rear of the room. The setting of “0” is a
neutral default. “+” settings move the sound toward the front of the room, while “–”
settings move the sound toward the rear. Use the left/right arrow buttons to adjust it.
See Audio Processing and Surround Sound, on page 17, for more information about
Dolby Pro Logic II.
Auto Power Control: This setting allows you to set the AVR to automatically enter the
Standby mode after a period of inactivity, saving energy. The available settings are Off
(default), 2 hours, 4 hours and 6 hours.
Speaker On/Off: Use this setting to turn the speakers off when you are listening through
headphones.

Surround mode selection depends upon the number of speakers in your system, the
programs you are watching or listening to, and your personal tastes.
Advanced Functions
Much of the adjusting and configuration your AVR requires is handled automatically, with
little intervention required on your part. You can also customize your AVR to suit your
system and your tastes. In this section, we will describe some of the more advanced
adjustments available to you.
Audio Processing and Surround Sound
Audio signals can be encoded in a variety of formats that affect not only the quality of the
sound but also the number of speaker channels and the surround mode. You may also
manually select a different surround mode, when available.
Analog Audio Signals
Analog audio signals usually consist of two channels – left and right. Your AVR offers
several options for analog playback:
• S tereo: When you want conventional 2-channel playback, press the STEREO button.
Sound will be output from the front left and right speakers.
• 5 -Ch Stereo: When you want to hear stereo sound through all of the system’s speakers
(such as during a party), select 5CH STEREO via the Surround Mode Select buttons.
This plays the left-channel signal through the front left and surround left speakers,
the right-channel signal through the front right and surround right speakers, and a
summed mono signal through the center speaker.
• A nalog Surround Modes: Your AVR is able to process 2-channel audio signals to
produce multi-channel surround sound, even when no surround sound has been
encoded in the recording. Among the available modes are Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby
Pro Logic, DTS Neo: 6, Theater, Hall, Stadium, Club and Arena modes. Use the
Surround Mode Select buttons to select one of these modes. See Table A5 in the
Appendix, on page 25, for breif explanations of each of these surround modes.
When in doubt, check the broadcast or the jacket of your disc for more information
on which surround modes are available. Usually, nonessential sections of a disc, such
as trailers, extra materials or the disc menu, are available only in Dolby Digital 2.0
(2-channel) or PCM 2-channel mode. Look for an audio setup section in the disc’s menu.
Also, make sure your disc player’s audio output is set to the original bitstream rather than
2-channel PCM. Stop play and check the player’s output setting.
Adjusting the Channel Volumes
In addition to using the AVR’s built-in test noise to configure the AVR for your speakers as
explained in Configure the AVR for Your Speakers, you can also adjust the volume of any
channel at any time to compensate for individual program sources or your personal taste.
1. Press the remote’s Channel Level button. The Message Display will show the left
channel volume level.
2. Use the remote’s up and down arrow buttons to display the channel you want to adjust.
3. Use the remote’s left and right arrow buttons to adjust the channel’s volume.
Press the BACK button when you’re finished.
Digital Audio Signals
Recording
Digital audio signals offer greater flexibility and capacity than analog signals and
allow the encoding of up to 5.1 channels of discrete channel information directly into
the signal. The result is improved sound quality and startling directionality, since each
channel’s information is transmitted independently of the other channels. High-resolution
recordings sound extraordinarily distortion-free, especially in the high frequencies.
Two-channel analog audio signals, as well as composite video signals, are normally
available at the appropriate recording output connectors. To make a recording, connect
your audio or video recorder to the appropriate AVR output connectors as described in
the Making Connections section, insert blank media in the recorder and make sure the
recorder is turned on and recording while the source is playing. Refer to the recording
device’s instructions for complete information about making recordings.
Digital surround-sound formats include Dolby Digital 2.0 (two channels only), Dolby

Memory
If the AVR behaves erratically after a power surge, first turn off the front-panel Main
Power switch and unplug the AC power cord for at least 3 minutes. Plug the cord back
in and turn the AVR on. If this procedure doesn’t help, reset the AVR’s processor as
described below.
If the AVR is unplugged or experiences a power outage, it will retain your user settings
for up to two weeks.
NOTE: Resetting the processor will erase all user configurations, including speaker and
level settings, and tuner presets. After a reset, reenter all of these settings from your
notes in the Appendix worksheets.
