SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR 1600 has been designed for use with 120-volt AC current.
Connection to a line voltage other than that for which it 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.
Do Not Use Extension Cords
To avoid safety hazards, use only the power cord attached to your unit.
We do not recommend that extension cords be used with this product. As
with all electrical devices, do not run power cords under rugs or carpets or
place heavy objects on them. Damaged power cords should be replaced
immediately by an authorized service center with a cord meeting factory
specifications.
Handle the AC Power Cord Gently
When disconnecting the power cord from an AC outlet, always pull the
plug; never pull the cord. If you do not intend to use the unit for any
considerable length of time, disconnect the plug from the AC outlet.
Do Not Open the Cabinet
There are no user-serviceable components inside this product. Opening the
cabinet may present a shock hazard, and any modification to the product
will void your warranty. If 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
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 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.
Installation Location
s 4O ENSURE PROPER OPERATION AND TO AVOID THE POTENTIAL FOR SAFETY HAZARDS
place the unit on a firm and level surface. When placing the unit on a
shelf, be certain that the shelf and any mounting hardware can support
the weight of the product.
s -AKE CERTAIN THAT PROPER SPACE IS PROVIDED BOTH ABOVE AND BELOW THE
unit for ventilation. If this product will be installed in a cabinet or other
enclosed area, make certain that there is sufficient air movement within
the cabinet. Under some circumstances, a fan may be required.
s $O NOT PLACE THE UNIT DIRECTLY ON A CARPETED SURFACE
s !VOID INSTALLATION IN EXTREMELY HOT OR COLD LOCATIONS OR IN AN AREA THAT IS
exposed to direct sunlight or heating equipment.
s !VOID MOIST OR HUMID LOCATIONS
s $O NOT OBSTRUCT THE VENTILATION SLOTS ON THE TOP OF THE UNIT OR PLACE
objects directly over them.
s $UE TO THE WEIGHT OF THE !62 AND THE HEAT GENERATED BY THE
amplifiers, there is the remote possibility that the rubber padding on the
bottom of the unit’s feet may leave marks on certain wood or veneer
materials. Use caution when placing the unit on soft woods or other
materials that may be damaged by heat or heavy objects. Some surface
finishes may be particularly sensitive to absorbing such marks, due to a
variety of factors beyond our control, including the nature of the finish,
cleaning materials used, and normal heat and vibration caused by the
use of the product, or other factors. We recommend that caution be
exercised in choosing an installation location for the component and in
normal maintenance practices, as your warranty will not cover this type of
damage to furniture.
Cleaning
When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft, dry cloth. If necessary,
and only after unplugging the AC power cord, wipe it with a soft cloth
dampened with mild soapy water, then a fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe
it dry immediately with a dry cloth. NEVER use benzene, aerosol cleaners,
thinner, alcohol or any other volatile cleaning agent. Do not use abrasive
cleaners, as they may damage the finish of metal parts. Avoid spraying
insecticide near the unit.
Moving the Unit
Before moving the unit, be certain to disconnect any interconnection cords
with other components, and make certain that you disconnect the unit from
the AC outlet.

INTRODUCTION TO HOME THEATER
This introductory section will help you to familiarize yourself with
some basic concepts unique to multichannel surround sound
receivers, which will make setup and operation smoother.
Typical Home Theater System
A home theater typically includes an audio/video receiver, which
controls the system; a disc player; a source component for television broadcasts (cable box, satellite dish receiver, HDTV tuner or
antenna connected to the TV); a video display (television); and loudspeakers.
Multichannel Audio
The main benefit of a home theater system is the placement
of loudspeakers around the room to produce “surround sound.”
Surround sound immerses you in the presentation for increased
realism.
The AVR 1600 may have up to seven speakers connected directly
to it, plus a subwoofer. Each main speaker is powered by its own
amplifier channel inside the receiver. A system with more than two
speakers is called a multichannel system.
s &RONT ,EFT AND 2IGHT n The main speakers are used as
in a 2-channel system. In many surround modes, these speakers are secondary, while the main action, especially dialogue, is
moved to the center speaker.
s #ENTER n The center speaker is used for dialogue in movies
and television programs, allowing the dialogue to originate near
the actors’ faces, for a more natural sound.
s 3URROUND ,EFT AND 2IGHT n The surround speakers
improve directionality of ambient sounds. In addition, more loudspeakers play dynamic soundtracks without risk of overloading
any one speaker.
s 3URROUND "ACK ,EFT AND 2IGHT n Additional surround
speakers may be placed behind the listening position, improving the
precision of ambient sounds and allowing for more realistic pans.
The surround back speakers are used with surround modes

7 (7.1 modes). The surround back speakers are optional, and the
AVR 1600 may be set up with a 5.1-channel system in the main
listening area.
-ANY PEOPLE EXPECT THE SURROUND SPEAKERS TO PLAY AS LOUDLY AS THE
front speakers. Although all of the speakers in the system will be
calibrated to sound equally loud at the listening position, most artists
use the surround speakers for ambient effects only, and they program their materials to steer very little sound to these speakers.
s 3UBWOOFER n A subwoofer is designed to play only the lowest
frequencies (the bass). It augments smaller, limited-range satellite
SPEAKERS USED FOR THE OTHER CHANNELS -ANY DIGITALFORMAT PROGRAMS
such as movies recorded in Dolby Digital, contain a low-frequency
effects (LFE) channel which 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 even distribution of the sound.
14
Surround Modes
There are different theories as to the best way to present surround
sound and to distribute information to the speakers. A variety of
algorithms have been developed in an effort to reproduce the way we
hear sounds in the real world, resulting in a rich variety of options.
Several companies have taken surround sound in different directions:

Table A9 in the appendix contains detailed explanations of the
mode groups and the mode options available within each group.
Digital modes, such as Dolby Digital and DTS, are only available
with specially encoded programs, such as HDTV, Blu-ray Disc
media and digital cable or satellite television. Other modes may be
used with digital and analog signals to create a different surround
presentation, or to use a different number of speakers. Surround
-ODE SELECTION DEPENDS UPON THE NUMBER OF SPEAKERS IN YOUR
system, the materials you are watching or listening to, and your
personal tastes.
CONNECTIONS
There are different types of audio and video connections used
to connect the receiver, the speakers, the video display, and
the source devices. The Consumer Electronics Association has
established the CEA® color-coding standard. Some of these
connectors are not used on the AVR 1600, although they may be
found on other components in your system. See Table 1.

Subwoofer
The subwoofer is dedicated to the low frequencies (bass), which
require more power. To obtain the best results, most speaker
manufacturers offer powered subwoofers that contain their own
amplifier. Usually, a line-level (nonamplified) connection is made
from the receiver’s Subwoofer Output to a corresponding jack
on the subwoofer, as shown in Figure 3.
Although the purple subwoofer outputs look similar to full-range
analog audio jacks, they are filtered to allow only the low frequencies
to pass. Don’t connect these outputs to any other devices.

Speaker Connections
Speaker cables carry an amplified signal from the receiver’s speaker
terminals to each loudspeaker. They contain two wire conductors,
or leads, inside plastic insulation, that are differentiated in some
way, such as with colors or stripes.
The differentiation preserves polarity, without which low-frequency
performance can suffer. Each speaker is connected to the receiver’s
speaker-output 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
receiver, which is colored as indicated in the Connection Color Guide
(Table 1). The negative terminals are both black.
The AVR 1600 uses binding-post
speaker terminals that can accept
+
banana plugs or bare-wire cables.
Banana plugs are inserted into the hole
in the middle of the terminal
cap. See Figure 1.
Figure 1 – Binding-Post Speaker Terminals With Banana Plugs
Bare wire cables are installed as follows (see Figure 2):
1. Unscrew the terminal cap until the pass-through hole is revealed.
2. Insert the bare end of the wire into the hole.
3. Hand-tighten the cap until the wire is held snugly.

Analog Video
There are two types of analog video connections used on the
AVR 1600: composite video and component video.
Composite video is the basic connection most commonly available.
The jack is usually color-coded yellow, and looks like an analog
audio jack. Do not plug a composite video cable into an analog
or coaxial digital audio jack, or vice versa. Both the chrominance
(color) and luminance (intensity) components of the video signal
are transmitted using a single cable. See Figure 10.

Component video separates the video signal into three
components – one luminance (“Y”) and two sub-sampled color
signals (“Pb” and “Pr”) – that are transmitted using three separate
cables. See Figure 11.

Place the front left/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 above or below
the left/right speakers. If you’re using only two speakers with
the AVR 1600, place them in the front left and right positions.
Placement of the surround speakers depends on the number of

and DTS Neo:6 mode. Using the AVR 1600 in a 6.1-channel
configuration is not recommended. The 6.1-channel formats
will sound better when played through a 7.1-channel system. The same surround back channel information is played
through both surround back speakers, but with twice the
power and clarity.
To use the AVR 1600 with a 6.1-channel speaker system,
place the single surround back speaker directly behind
the listener, but do not connect it until after you have run
the EzSet/EQ procedure for a 5.1-channel system. After
the EzSet/EQ process finishes, connect the surround back
speaker to the Surround Back Left Speaker Output. Then
follow the directions in the Advanced Functions section for
manual setup of the surround back speaker.
Subwoofer Placement
Placement of the subwoofer is less critical, since low-frequency
sounds are omnidirectional. Placing the subwoofer close to a wall
or in a corner will reinforce the low frequencies, and may create
a “boomy” sound. Temporarily place the subwoofer where the
listener normally sits, then walk around the room until the low
frequencies sound best. Place the subwoofer in that spot.
NOTE: Your receiver will sound its best when the same
model or brand loudspeaker is used for all positions.
GETTING STARTED
Installing the AVR 1600 and connecting it to the other system components
can be complicated. To simplify installation, it is suggested that you
design your system before you begin connecting wires and cables.
Although the rear-panel jacks allow for a variety of audio and video
connections to other components, the AVR organizes the connections
into six conventional sources: DVD (Blu-ray Disc player or DVD
player), CD, Tape (audio recorder), Video 1 (VCR), Video 2 (Cable/
Sat) and Video 3 (TV). Each of these sources uses dedicated analog
audio inputs, and the DVD and Video 1/2/3 sources also use dedicated composite video inputs.
The AVR 1600 also features six digital audio inputs (two each coaxial
and optical on the rear panel, and one of each type on the front
panel). The digital audio inputs, which offer improved performance
when available on the source device, may be assigned to any
source, as explained in the Initial Setup section.
The two component video inputs offer improved video performance
when available on the source device and video display, and may
also be assigned to any source.
The 6-/8-Channel Analog Audio Inputs are selected as a separate
source, but may only be used with one of the two component video
inputs.
For superior audio and video performance, the AVR 1600 is
EQUIPPED WITH THREE DEDICATED ($-) INPUTS WHICH MAY BE USED
WITH ANY TYPE OF SOURCE DEVICE THAT HAS AN ($-) OUTPUT 4HE ($-)
inputs may be used with an analog or digital audio input or one of
the component video inputs. This flexibility facilitates using the AVR
with sources that do not output multichannel audio through their
($-) OUTPUTS
Table A1 in the appendix indicates the default audio/video connection assignments. If the defaults suit your system, then connect
your devices to the audio/video inputs shown. Otherwise, design
your system as explained below.

INSTALLATION
You are now ready to begin installing the AVR. Before beginning to
connect the various components to the receiver, turn off all devices,
including the AVR 1600, and unplug their power cords. Don’t plug
in any of the power cords until you have finished making all of
your connections.
The receiver generates heat. Select a location that leaves several
inches of space on all sides. Avoid completely enclosing the receiver
inside an unventilated cabinet. Place components on separate
shelves rather than stacking them directly on top of the receiver.
Never block the AVR’s ventilation slots on the top and side panels.
Doing so could cause the AVR to overheat, with potentially serious
consequences. Some shelf surface finishes are delicate. Try to
select a location with a sturdy surface finish.
TIP: Label each cable before connecting it, to avoid mistakes. Write a description of the cable on a blank adhesive
label, e.g., “DVD”, and fold the label around the cable about 6
inches from the end to be plugged into the AVR.
Almost all of the following installation steps are optional, depending
on your system. Skip any step that does not apply to your system.
STEP ONE n #ONNECT 3OURCE $EVICES
Leaving all AC power cords unplugged, connect the source devices
to the AVR using the audio and video inputs you assigned in Table 2.

If you have a subwoofer, connect its line-level or LFE input to the
purple Subwoofer Output.
NOTE: If the subwoofer only has speaker-level inputs, after
you have configured the AVR using EzSet/EQ technology as
described on page 23, connect the subwoofer’s left and right
speaker input terminals to the AVR’s Front Left and Front Right
Speaker Outputs, then connect the front left and right main
speakers to the subwoofer’s left and right speaker output

If you have other source devices in your system, follow these steps
to program the correct codes into the remote.
1. Using the codes in Tables A11– A17 of the Appendix, look up the
product type (e.g., DVD, cable TV box) and the brand name of
your source. The number(s) listed is/are potential candidates for
the correct code set for your particular device.
2. Turn on your source device.
3. This step places the remote in program mode. Press and hold
the Source Selector until the Program Indicator LED on the
remote starts to flash, then release it. When pressed, the Source
Selector will light red briefly, go dark, and then relight when the

Button repeatedly until the device turns off. When the device
turns off, enter the code by pressing the Source Selector; it will
flash. The remote then exits Program mode.
6. Once you have programmed a code, try using some other functions to control the device. Sometimes manufacturers use the
same Power code for several different models, while other codes
vary. Repeat this process until you’ve programmed a satisfactory
code set that operates most of the functions you frequently use.
7. Find out which code number you have programmed by pressing
and holding the Source Selector to enter the Program mode.
Press the OK Button, and the Program Indicator LED will flash
in the code sequence. One flash represents “1”, two flashes for
“2”, and so forth. A series of many fast flashes represents “0”.
Record the codes programmed for each device in Table A7 in the
Appendix.

If you are unable to locate a code set that correctly operates your
source device, it will not be possible to use the AVR remote to control
that device. You may still connect the source to the AVR 1600 and
operate it using the device’s original remote control.
-OST OF THE BUTTON LABELS ON THE REMOTE DESCRIBE THE BUTTONS FUNCTION
when used to control the AVR 1600. However, the button may perform
a very different function when used to control another device. Refer
to the Remote Control Function List, Table A10 in the Appendix, for
each button’s functions with the various product types.

Configure the AVR 1600, Using EzSet/EQ
Technology
One of the most important steps in setting up a home theater
system is to calibrate the receiver to match the loudspeakers,
optimizing sound reproduction.
Until recently, most receivers required manual calibration and
configuration, a tedious process that called for a good ear or the
purchase of an SPL (sound-pressure level) meter. Although you may
configure the AVR 1600 manually, as described in the Advanced
Functions section, it is recommended that you take advantage of
the signature Harman Kardon EzSet/EQ system.

To return to the SPEAKER SETUP menu without starting the
EzSet/EQ process, select “Cancel”. When you are ready to begin,
select the number of speakers in your system. Select 5.1 if no
surround back speakers are present.

INITIAL SETUP
NOTE: If there are fewer than five main speakers in your
system, do not use the EzSet/EQ process. Instead, proceed
as described in the Advanced Functions section. If you have
selected a 6.1-channel configuration with a single surround
back speaker, use EzSet/EQ automatic configuration for
5.1 speakers, connect the single surround back speaker
to the left Surround Back Speaker Output, then configure
the surround back speaker manually, as described in the
Advanced Functions section. The 6.1-channel configuration
is not recommended. If the subwoofer is to be connected to
the Front Speaker Outputs, do not connect the subwoofer until
after running the EzSet/EQ process.

ADVANCED FUNCTIONS
-UCH OF THE !62 S PERFORMANCE IS HANDLED AUTOMATICALLY
with little intervention required on your part. The AVR 1600 is
capable of being customized to suit your system and your tastes.
In this section, some of the more advanced adjustments available
are described.
AUDIO PROCESSING AND SURROUND
SOUND
Audio signals output by sources are encoded in a variety of formats
that can affect not only the quality of the sound but 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. The AVR 1600 offers three options for playback:
1. Analog Bypass Mode: The 2-channel signal is passed
directly from the input to the volume control, without being
digitized or undergoing any processing for bass management
or surround sound. To select analog bypass mode:
a) The analog audio inputs for the source must be selected.
If necessary, with the remote in AVR device mode, press
the Digital Select Button and use the
Buttons to select
“ANALOG”.
b) The tone controls must be disabled by turning off the TONE
setting. With the remote in AVR device mode, press the Tone
Button and use the
Buttons to select “TONE OUT”.
c) The 2-channel Stereo mode must be selected. Press the
OSD Button, and use the
Buttons to select “SURROUND
SELECT”. Press the OK Button. Use the
Buttons to select
“STEREO”, and press the OK Button. Use the
Buttons
to select either the 2- or 7-Channel Stereo mode.
2. DSP Surround Off Mode: The DSP Surround Off mode
digitizes the incoming signal and applies the bass management
settings, including speaker configuration, delay times and output
levels. Select this mode when your front speakers are small,
limited-range satellites and you are using a subwoofer. To select
this mode, use a digital audio input, or set the TONE setting to
IN, and select 2-channel Stereo mode.
3. Analog Surround Modes: The AVR 1600 is able to
process 2-channel audio signals to produce multichannel
surround sound, even when no surround sound has been
encoded
in the recording. Among the available modes are the Dolby
Pro Logic II/IIx modes, the Harman Virtual Speaker modes, the
DTS Neo:6 modes, the Logic 7 modes and the Stereo modes.
Digital Audio Signals
Digital audio signals offer greater capacity, which allows the
encoding of center and surround channel information directly
into the signal. The result is improved sound quality and startling
directionality, since each channel is reproduced discretely.
Even when only two channels are encoded, the digital signal
allows for a higher sampling rate that delivers greater detail.
High-resolution recordings sound extraordinarily distortion-free,
especially at high frequencies.
30
Surround Modes
Surround mode selection is dependent upon the format of the
incoming audio signal, as well as personal taste. Table A9 offers a
brief description of each mode and indicates the types of incoming
signals or digital bitstreams the mode may be used with. Additional
information about the Dolby and DTS modes is available on the
companies’ Web sites: www.dolby.com and www.dtsonline.com.
When in doubt, check the jacket of your disc for more information
on which surround modes are available. Usually, nonessential
sections of the disc, such as trailers, extra materials or the disc
MENU ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IN $OLBY $IGITAL CHANNEL OR 0#2-channel mode. If the main title is playing and the display shows
one of these surround modes, look for an audio or language setup
section in the disc’s menu. Also, make sure your player’s audio
OUTPUT IS SET TO THE ORIGINAL BITSTREAM RATHER THAN CHANNEL 0#-
Stop play and check the player’s output setting.
For any incoming signal, only a limited number of surround
modes are available. Although there is never a time when all of
the AVR 1600’s surround modes are available, there is usually
a wide variety of modes available for a given input.
-ULTICHANNEL DIGITAL RECORDINGS ARE FOUND IN THE OR
7.1-channel formats. The channels included in a 5.1-channel
recording are front left, front right, center, surround left, surround
right and LFE. The LFE channel is denoted as “.1” to represent the
fact that
it is limited to the low frequencies.
6.1-Channel recordings add a single surround back channel, and
7.1-channel recordings add surround back left and surround back
right channels to the 5.1-channel configuration. New formats are
available in 7.1-channel configurations. The AVR 1600 is able to
play the new audio formats, delivering a more exciting home theater
experience.
NOTE: To use the 6.1- and 7.1-channel surround modes,

When a digital signal is received, the AVR 1600 detects the
encoding method and the number of channels, which is displayed
briefly as three numbers, separated by slashes (e.g., “3/2/.1”).
The first number indicates the number of front channels in the signal:
“1” represents a monophonic recording, usually an older program
that has been digitally remastered or, more rarely, a modern
program for which the director has chosen a special effect.
“2” indicates the presence of the left and right channels, but no
center channel.
“3” indicates that all three front channels (left, right and center)
are present.
ADVANCED FUNCTIONS
The second number indicates whether any surround channels are
present:
“0” indicates that no surround information is present.
“1” indicates that a matrixed surround signal is present.
“2” indicates discrete left and right surround channels.
“3” is used with DTS-ES bitstreams to represent the presence
of the discrete surround back channel, in addition to the side
surround left and right channels.
“4” is used with 7.1-channel digital formats to indicate the presence
of two discrete side surround channels and two discrete back
surround channels.
The third number is used for the LFE channel:
“0” indicates no LFE channel.
“.1” indicates that an LFE channel is present.

The AVR 1600 is flex ble and may be configured for most speakers,
and to compensate for the acoustic characteristics of your room.
The EzSet/EQ process automatically detects the capabilities of each
speaker, and optimizes the AVR 1600’s performance. If you are
unable to run EzSet/EQ calibration, or if you wish to make further
ADJUSTMENTS USE THE -ANUAL 3PEAKER 3ETUP ONSCREEN MENUS
Before beginning, place your loudspeakers as explained in the
Speaker Placement section, and connect them to the AVR. Consult
the owner’s guide for the speakers or the manufacturer’s Web
site for the frequency range specification. Although you may set
the output levels “by ear,” an SPL (sound-pressure level) meter
purchased at a local electronics store will provide greater accuracy.
Record your configuration settings in Tables A4 and A6 in the
appendix for easy re-entry after a system reset, or if the AVR’s
-ASTER 0OWER 3WITCH IS TURNED OFF OR THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED FOR

STEP ONE n $ETERMINE 3PEAKER
Crossover
Without using the EzSet/EQ process, the AVR 1600 can’t detect
how many speakers you’ve connected to it; nor can it determine
their capabilities. Consult the speaker’s technical specifications
and locate the frequency response, usually given as a range, e.g.,
100Hz – 20kHz (±3dB). Write down the lowest frequency that each
of your main speakers is capable of playing (100Hz in the example)
as the crossover in Table A6 in the appendix. This is not the same
as the crossover frequency listed in the speaker’s specifications.
For the subwoofer, write down the transducer size.
The receiver’s bass management determines which speakers will
be used to play back the low-frequency (bass) portion of the source
program. Sending the lowest notes to small satellite speakers won’t
sound right, and may even damage the speaker. The highest notes
may not be heard at all through the subwoofer.
With proper bass management, the AVR 1600 divides the source
signal at a crossover point. All information above the crossover
point is played through the satellite speaker, and all information
below the crossover point is played through the subwoofer. Each
loudspeaker in your system performs at its best, delivering an
enjoyable sound experience.

Channel Reset: To reset all of the levels to their factory defaults
of 0dB, navigate to this line and change the setting to ON. The levels
will be reset, and this setting will remain ON until one of the channel
levels is adjusted.
If you are using an external source to set your output levels, navigate
to each channel and use the
Buttons to adjust the level as desired.
If you would like to set your levels using the AVR 1600’s internal test
tone, adjust the TEST TONE SEQ and TEST TONE lines as follows.
Test Tone SEQ: When this setting reads AUTO, the test tone will
automatically circulate to all channels, pausing for a few moments at
each channel for several seconds, as indicated by the blinking cursor.
Adjust the level for any channel when the test tone is paused there by
using the
Buttons. You may also use the
Buttons at any time
to move the cursor to another line, and the test tone will follow the cursor.
7HEN THIS SETTING READS -!.5!, THE TEST TONE WILL NOT MOVE TO THE
next channel until you use the
Buttons.
Test Tone: This line determines whether the test tone is active.

ADVANCED REMOTE CONTROL
FUNCTIONS
The remote control not only operates the AVR 1600, but it also
serves as a universal remote that may be programmed to operate
many of your other home theater components, as described in the
Installation section.
Each time you select one of your other components, the AVR
remote switches to the control functions for that component. Since
many buttons have unique functions for each component, refer
to the Function List in Table A10 of the Appendix for assistance in
operating your other components. Each button’s function will not
necessarily correspond to its label.
Punch-Through Programming
The AVR 1600 remote’s punch-through feature allows you to select
one component for the remote to operate, while simultaneously
setting certain groups of controls to operate another component.
For example, while using the AVR to control surround modes and
other audio functions, you may operate the transport controls of
your DVD player. Or while using the remote to control video functions
on your TV, you may use your cable box to change channels and
the AVR to control the volume.
ADVANCED FUNCTIONS
NOTES:
s )T IS NOT NECESSARY TO PROGRAM THE REMOTE TO CONTROL YOUR
DVD player’s transport controls while the AVR, VID2 or VID3
devices are in use, as the remote is preprogrammed at the
factory with this function.
s 7HEN IN $6$ DEVICE MODE THE REMOTE MAY BE USED TO CONTROL
either a DVD player or a Harman Kardon Blu-ray Disc
player. To toggle between these two device modes, press
and hold the DVD Input Selector until it flashes. The factory
default is to operate a Harman Kardon Blu-ray Disc player.
To program punch-through control while operating any device:
1. Press and hold the Input Selector (or AVR selector) for the main
device the remote will be operating until the Program LED flashes
and the remote enters Program mode.
2. Select the type of punch-through programming.
a) Volume Control: Press the Volume Up Button.
b) Channel Control: Press the Volume Down Button.
c) Transport Control: Press the Play Button.
3. Press the Input Selector (or AVR Selector) for the device whose
volume, channel or transport controls you would like to be active
while operating the device you selected in the first step. The LED
will flash green to confirm the programming. For example, if you
wish to watch your TV (programmed into the Video 3 Button)
while changing channels using your cable box (Video 2), first
press and hold the Video 3 Button until the LED flashes. Then
press the Volume Down Button, followed by the Video 2 Button.
To undo punch-through programming, follow the same steps as
above, but press the same Input (or AVR) Selector in Steps 1 and 3.
You may reassign the transport control punch-through programming
for the AVR, VID2 and VID3 devices to other devices, such as CD. If
you wish to remove transport control punch-through altogether for
the AVR, VID2 or VID3 device, follow the same procedure as for
programming punch-through, but in Step 3 press either of the
other two of these three special selector buttons. For example, to
remove punch-through transport control from the VID3 device so
that pressing any of the transport controls will have no effect, press
and hold the VID3 Button until the Program Indicator LED flashes in
amber, then press the Play Button, followed by either the AVR or VID2
Button.
Macros
-ACROS ARE USED TO PROGRAM SEQUENCES OF UP TO COMMANDS THAT
ARE EXECUTED WITH A SINGLE BUTTON PRESS -ACROS ARE WELL SUITED FOR
power on and off commands, or to send out a favorite multidigit
channel number with one button press, or to have the ability to
send out a code sequence to control a device while the remote is
operating another device, but with more flexibility than the built-in
punch-through controls.
3OME COMMANDS MAY NOT BE PROGRAMMED INTO MACROS -UTE $IM
or Channel Up/Down.
NOTE: Use caution when programming complicated macros.
It isn’t poss ble to program a pause or delay before sending
commands after Power On, and the component may not be ready
to respond to commands instantaneously after powering on.
To program, or “record”, a macro, follow the steps below.
3IMULTANEOUSLY PRESS ONE OF THE FOUR -ACRO "UTTONS OR THE
0OWER /N "UTTON AND THE -UTE "UTTON TO ENTER PROGRAM MODE
2. Press the Input (or AVR) Selector for each device before you enter
commands to be transmitted to that device. This step counts as
one of the 19 commands allowed for each macro.
3. For the Power On command, DO NOT press the Power On Button.
0RESS THE -UTE "UTTON INSTEAD
4. Press the Power Off Button to program the Power Off command.
5. Press the Sleep Button to end the programming process.
4O EXECUTE THE MACRO PRESS THE -ACRO "UTTON OR THE 0OWER /N
Button, selected in the first step of programming the macro.
It isn’t possible to “edit” a command within a macro. However, you
may erase the macro as follows:
3IMULTANEOUSLY PRESS AND HOLD THE -UTE "UTTON AND THE -ACRO
Button containing the macro until the LED flashes.
2. Press the Channel Down Button to erase the macro.
Resetting the Remote
To reset the remote to its factory defaults, simultaneously press
and hold any Input Selector and the “0” Numeric Key. When the
Program LED flashes in amber, enter the code “333”. When the
green LED goes out, the remote will have been fully reset.
PROCESSOR RESET
If the unit behaves erratically after a power surge, first turn off
THE -AIN 0OWER 3WITCH AND UNPLUG THE !# POWER CORD FOR AT LEAST
3 minutes. Plug the cord back in and turn the receiver on. If this
doesn’t help, reset the AVR.
NOTE: A system reset erases all user configurations, including
Source settings, speaker and level settings, and tuner presets.
After a reset, reenter all of these settings from your notes in
the appendix worksheets.
To reset the AVR 1600, place it in Standby mode (press the frontpanel Standby/On Switch so that the Power Indicator turns amber).
4HEN PRESS AND HOLD THE FRONTPANEL 3URROUND -ODE "UTTON FOR AT
least 5 seconds until the RESET message appears.
If the receiver does not function correctly ofter a processor reset,
contact an authorized Harman Kardon service center for assistance.
Authorized service centers may be located by visiting the Web site
at www.harmankardon.com.
MEMORY
If the AVR 1600 is unplugged or experiences a power outage, it will
retain user settings for up to four weeks.

Note: When any of the transport controls are pressed while the remote is in AVR, Video 2 or Video 3 mode, the remote will automatically switch to DVD mode and the command will be applied to
the DVD player. If you then press a button native to the original mode, e.g., Volume Down for the AVR, the remote will revert to the original mode. See Punch-Through Programming, described in
the Advanced Functions section, for more information.

WHO IS PROTECTED BY THIS WARRANTY
Your Harman Kardon warranty protects the
original owner of a Harman Kardon product,
provided that the product was purchased within
the continental United States, Alaska or Hawaii
from an authorized dealer who was authorized by
Harman Kardon to sell such products at the time
of the original purchase, or was purchased by
military personnel from an authorized military
outlet. Warranty service is available only in the
country of original purchase. For warranty
information outside the continental United States,
Alaska or Hawaii, please contact your local dealer
or distributor. Warranty service is available as
long as the original bill of sale is presented when
warranty service is required. Please attach a copy
of your bill of sale to this warranty statement and
put it in a safe place.
WHAT IS COVERED
Your Harman Kardon warranty covers all defects
in material and workmanship with the following
specified exceptions: (1) damage caused by
accident, unreasonable use or neglect (including
the lack of reasonable and necessary maintenance); (2) damage occurring during shipment
(claims must be presented to the carrier); (3)
damage to, or deterioration of, any accessory or
decorative surface; (4) damage resulting from
failure to follow instructions contained in your
owner's manual; (5) damage resulting from the
performance of repairs by someone other than
an authorized Harman Kardon warranty station;
(6) any Harman Kardon unit on which the serial
number has been effaced, modified or removed;
(7) units used for other than home use. This
warranty covers only actual defects within the'
product itself, and does not cover the cost of
installation or removal from a fixed installation,
normal set-up or adjustments, claims based on
misrepresentation by the seller or performance
variations resulting from installation-related
circumstances such as source quality or AC power.
NOTE: Repair of our product must be done by an authorized dealer or service center. Unauthorized repair will
void the warranty and is done at the risk of the
consumer.

service, please return the product to your dealer.

United States, Alaska or Hawaii, please visit
