INTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing Harman Kardon®! With
the purchase of a Harman Kardon AVR 335, 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 335 harnesses advanced technologies
usually found only in higher-priced receivers.
The AVR 335 has been engineered so that it is easy
to take advantage of all the power of its digital technology. 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 335 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 335 is versatile and multifeatured, incorporating a wide range of listening options. In addition to
Dolby* Digital and DTS® decoding for digital soundtracks, a broad choice of Matrix surround-encoded or
Stereo surround modes are available for use with CD,
VCR, TV broadcasts and the AVR 335’s own FM/AM
tuner. Along with Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic* II
and IIx, DTS Neo:6®, Dolby 3 Stereo, and Hall and
Theater modes, the AVR 335 offers Harman International’s
exclusive Logic 7® processing in both 5.1 and 7.1 versions to create a wider, more enveloping field environment and more defined fly-overs and pans. Another
exclusive is VMAx®, which uses proprietary processing
to create an open, spacious sound field even when
only two front speakers are available. Dolby Virtual
Speaker is also available to create an enveloping
sound field when fewer than six speakers are used.
The latest Dolby Headphone modes provide a much
more open and realistic presentation for private headphones listening.
In addition to providing a wide range of listening
options, the AVR 335 is easy to configure so that it
provides the best results with your speakers and specific listening-room environment. On-screen menus
combine with the EzSet+ system to automate speaker
configuration and overall setup, resulting in a perfectly
balanced sound field presentation that accurately
reproduces the artist’s intent.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the AVR 335 features
connections for five video devices, all with both
composite and S-video inputs. Two additional audio
inputs are available, and eight digital inputs make the
AVR 335 capable of handling all the latest digital audio
sources. For compatibility with the latest HDTV video
sources and progressive scan DVD players, the
AVR 335 also features two-input, wide-bandwidth,
low-crosstalk, component video switching.
The front panel offers coax and optical digital inputs
for direct connection to digital recorders. Two video
recording outputs, preamp-out and a color-coded
eight-channel input, make the AVR 335 virtually
future-proof, with everything needed to accommodate
tomorrow’s new formats right onboard.
The AVR 335’s flexibility and power extend beyond
your main home theater or listening room. The
AVR 335 includes a sophisticated multizone control
system that allows you to select one source for use in
the main room and a different source for audio and
video distribution to a second zone with the option to
assign two of the AVR 335’s output channels to the
multiroom system. Complete volume control in the
second zone is possible with a separate infrared control link. To make it easy to operate the AVR 335 from
a remote zone, a separate “Zone II” remote is included.
The AVR 335’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 fifty years ago. With state-of-the-art circuitry
and time-honored circuit designs, the AVR 335 is
the perfect combination of the latest in digital audio
technology, a quiet yet powerful analog amplifier in an
elegant, easy-to-use package.

SAFETY INFORMATION
Important Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR 335 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

¶ Preamp Outputs: Connect these jacks to an
optional, external power amplifier for applications
where higher power is desired.
• Subwoofer Output: Connect this jack to the linelevel input of a powered subwoofer. If an external subwoofer amplifier is used, connect this jack to the subwoofer amplifier input.
ª Front Speaker Outputs: Connect these outputs
to the matching + or – terminals on your left and right
speakers. When making speaker connections always
make certain to maintain correct polarity by connecting
the color-coded (white for front left and red for front
right) (+) terminals on the AVR 335 to the red (+)
terminals on the speakers and the black (–) terminals
on the AVR 335 to the black (–) terminals on the
speakers. See page 14 for more information on
speaker polarity.
‚ Surround Back/Multiroom Speaker Outputs:
These speaker terminals are normally used to power
the surround back left/surround back right speakers
in a 7.1-channel system. However, they may also be
used to power the speakers in a second zone, which
will receive the output selected for a multiroom system.
To change the output fed to these terminals from
the default of the Surround Back speakers to the
Multiroom Output, you must change a setting in the
MULTIROOM MENU of the OSD system. See
page 35 for more information on configuring this
speaker output. In normal surround system use, the
brown and black terminals are the surround back left
channel positive (+) and negative (–) connections and
the tan and black terminals are the surround back
right positive (+) and negative (–) terminals. For multiroom use, connect the brown and black SBL terminals
to the red and black connections on the left remote
zone speaker and connect the tan and black SBR terminals to the red and black terminals on the right
remote zone speaker.
⁄ Surround Speaker Outputs: Connect these outputs to the matching + and – terminals on your surround channel speakers. In conformance with the CEA
color-code specification, the blue terminal is the positive, or “+,” terminal that should be connected to the
red (+) terminal on the Surround Left speaker with
older color-coding, while the gray terminal should be
connected to the red (+) terminal on the Surround
Right speaker with the older color-coding. Connect the
black (–) terminal on the AVR to the matching black
negative (–) terminals for each surround speaker. (See
page 14 for more information on speaker polarity.)
¤ Center Speaker Output: Connect these outputs
to the matching + and – terminals on your center
channel speaker. In conformance with the CEA colorcode specification, the green terminal is the positive,
or “+,” terminal that should be connected to the red

fl Fan Vents: These ventilation holes are the output
of the AVR 335’s airflow system. To ensure proper
operation of the unit and to avoid possible damage to
delicate surfaces, make certain that these holes are
not blocked and that there is at least three inches of
open space between the vent holes and any wooden
or fabric surface. It is normal for the fan to remain off
at most normal volume levels. An automatic temperature sensor turns the fan on only when it is needed.

INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
300-ohm-to-75-ohm adapter to make the connection.
System Installation
After unpacking the unit, locating it in a place with adequate ventilation and placing it on a solid surface capable
of supporting its weight, you will need to make the connections to your audio and video equipment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For your personal safety and to
avoid possible damage to your equipment and speakers,
it is always a good practice to turn off and unplug the
AVR and ALL source equipment from the AC output
before making any audio or video system connections.
Audio Equipment Connections
We recommend that you use high-quality interconnect
cables when making connections to source equipment
and recorders to preserve the integrity of the signals.
1. Connect the analog output of a CD player to the
CD Audio Inputs ™.
NOTE: When the CD player has both fixed and variable audio outputs, it is best to use the fixed output
49 47 45 43
unless you find that the input to the receiver is so low

7. Connect the front, center, surround and surround
back speaker outputs ª‚⁄¤ to the respective speakers.
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 10 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.
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 multichannel audio source with 5.1or 7.1-channel outputs such as an external digital
processor/decoder, DVD-Audio or SACD player is
used, connect the outputs of that device to the
8-Channel Direct Inputs j.
Video Equipment Connections
Video equipment is connected in the same manner
as audio components. Again, the use of high-quality

System and Power Connections
The AVR 335 is designed for flexible use with multiroom systems, external control components and
power amplifiers.
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.
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 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 335 via standard coaxial cable. Plug the IR connection cable into the Multiroom IR Input ∞ jack on
the AVR 335’s rear panel.
If Harman Kardon-compatible source equipment is part
of the main room installation, the Remote IR Output
§ jack on the rear panel should be connected to the
IR IN jack on source equipment. This will enable the
remote room sensor to control that equipment.
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 335,
plug the audio interconnect cables into the Multiroom
Audio Output ¡ jacks on the AVR 335’s rear panel.
Option 2: Connect the Multiroom Audio Output ¡
jacks on the AVR 335 to the inputs of an optional
stereo power amplifier. Run high-quality speaker wire
from the amplifier to the speakers in the remote room.
Option 3: Taking advantage of the AVR 335’s built-in
seven-channel amplifier, it is possible to use two of the
amplifier channels to power speakers in the remote
room. When using this option you will not be able to
use the full 7.1-channel capabilities of the AVR 335 in
the main listening room, but you will be able to add
another listening room without additional external
power amplifiers. To use the internal amplifiers to
power a remote zone, connect the speakers for
the remote room location to the Surround Back/
Multiroom Speaker Outputs ‚. Before using the
remote room you will need to configure the amplifiers
for surround operation by changing a setting in the
MULTIROOM menu, following the instructions
shown on page 35.
NOTE: For all options, you may connect an optional
IR sensor in the remote room to the AVR 335 via an
appropriate cable. Connect the sensor’s cable to the
Multiroom IR Input ∞ 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. See page 35 for
more informatin on the multiroom system.
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 high-current-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.
Multiroom Connections
The AVR 335 is equipped with multizone capabilities
that allow it to send a separate audio source to the
remote zone from the one selected for use in the
main room.
The Unswitched AC Accessory Outlet · will
receive power as long as the unit is plugged into a
powered AC outlet.
Depending on your system’s requirement, three
options are available for audio connection:
Once the AC Power Cord ‡ is connected, you are
almost ready to enjoy the AVR 335!
Option 1: Use high-quality, shielded audio interconnect cable from the AVR 335’s location to the remote

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
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.
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.
A) Front-channel speaker installation with direct-view TV
sets or rear-screen projectors

Speaker
Speaker Placement
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.
No more than 6 feet
when rear-mounted
speakers are used
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.
B) Rear speaker mounting is an alternate location for
5.1 systems. It is required for 7.1 operation.
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 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).
Rear surround speakers are required when a full 7.1channel system is installed, and they may also be
used in 5.1-channel systems 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 6 feet behind the
rear of the seating area.
16
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
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 Setup
Rear-Wall Mounting
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.
When the AVR 335 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 7.1-channel system, both side surround and back surround speakers are required. The
center of the speaker should face into the room.
It is appropriate to configure the AVR 335 for either
5.1- or 7.1-channel operation, but not for 6.1-channels. When 6.1-channel program material or a 6.1channel processing mode is in use, material for the
surround back channel will be outputted simultaneously
through both the Surround Back Left and Right
Speaker Outputs ‚. Connecting only one loudspeaker to these speaker terminals will not only
deprive you of the benefits of 7.1-channel surround
modes, such as Logic 7, but will also interfere with the
functioning of the EzSet+ speaker setup and calibration process as described on page 20. It may also put
undesirable strain on the surround back amplifier circuits and power supplies.
If dipole-type speakers are used on either the side or
rear walls of the room, please note that if there are
arrows on the speakers they should face the front of
the room for the side speakers, or toward the center
of the wall for the rear speakers.
Once the speakers have been placed in the room and
connected, the remaining steps in the setup process
are to program the AVR 335’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 335 to begin
these final adjustments.
1. Make certain that the AC power cord ‡ is firmly
inserted into an unswitched AC outlet. To maintain
the unit’s safety rating, DO NOT substitute the
power cord for one with lower current capacity.
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 2 will turn amber,
indicating that the unit is in the Standby mode.
3. Remove the protective plastic film from the frontpanel lens. If left in place, the film will affect the
performance of your remote control.

In order to view the AVR 335’s displays, the correct
video source must be selected on the video display.
The on-screen menus are not available when a component video display is in use.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When viewing the on-screen
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 335 warranty and may not be covered by the projector/TV set’s warranty.
The AVR 335 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.
The semi-OSD system is also available, allowing you
to make adjustments directly, by pressing the appropriate buttons on the front panel or remote control for
the specific parameter to be adjusted. For example, to
change the digital input for any of the sources, press
the Digital Select Button q and then press the
⁄/¤ Buttons n to scroll through the list of
options as they appear in the on-screen display or the
Lower Display Line ¯.
To use the full-OSD menu system, press the OSD
Button v. When the menu is on the screen, press
the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the on-screen › cursor
is next to the item you wish to adjust, and then press
the Set Button p to adjust that item. The menus
will remain on the screen for 20 seconds, and then
they will “time-out” and disappear from the screen. The
time-out may be increased to as much as 50 seconds
by going to the ADVANCED menu, and changing
the item titled FULL OSD TIME OUT.
When the full-OSD menu system is used, OSD ON
will appear in the Upper Display Line ˜ 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 on-screen display will
show the current menu selection. That selection will
also be shown in the Upper Display Line ˜ or the
Lower Display Line ¯, depending on which
parameter is being adjusted.
Setting the System Configuration Memory
The AVR 335 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 customize the way in which you listen to each
source and have the AVR 335 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.
However, we recommend that the first time you use
the AVR 335, you take advantage of the simplicity of
configuring the system using the EzSet+ process,
which takes the guesswork out of speaker size and
delay settings, and balances the speaker output levels
to tailor the AVR’s sound presentation to your specific
system and room. Before beginning the EzSet+ procedure, there are a few adjustments that need to be
made to ensure accurate results.
The factory default settings for the AVR 335 have all
inputs configured for an analog audio input except for
the DVD input, where the Coaxial Digital Audio
Input 1 d is the default. The default speaker settings
are “Small” for the front left/right, center and surround
left/right positions, and “None” for the surround back
left/right and the subwoofer. The default setting for the
surround modes for all analog inputs is the Logic 7
Music mode. Dolby Digital or DTS will automatically be
selected as appropriate when either of those bitstream
types is detected. When a 2-channel Dolby Digital
source is present, Dolby Pro Logic II will also be
selected automatically.
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 and the surround mode specifics of your
home theater system. Remember that since the
AVR 335 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 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 335 is to configure
each input. Once an input is selected, all settings for
the Digital Input, Speaker Configuration, Surround
Mode and Delay Timing will “attach” themselves to that
input and be stored in a nonvolatile memory. This
means that once made, the selection of an input will
automatically recall those settings. For that reason, the
procedures described below must be repeated for
each input source so that you have the opportunity to
customize each source to your specific listening
requirements. However, once made, they need not be
changed again unless you need to alter a setting.

will drop down to the DIGITAL IN line. Press
the ‹ / › Buttons o until the name of the desired
digital input appears. To return to the analog input,
press the buttons until the word ANALOG appears.
When the correct input source appears, press the ¤
Button n once so that the › cursor appears next
to BACK TO MASTER MENU, and press the
Set Button p.
To change the digital input at any time using the discrete function buttons and the semi-OSD system,
press the Digital Select Button q on the remote.
Within 5 seconds, make your input selection using the
⁄/¤ Buttons n until the desired digital or analog
input is shown in the Upper Display Line ˜ and in
the lower line of the on-screen display. Press the Set
Button p to enter the new digital input assignment.
Some digital video input sources, such as a cable box
or HDTV set-top, may change between analog and
digital outputs, depending on which channel is in use.
The AVR 335’s Auto Polling feature allows you to
avoid losing the audio feed when this happens by permitting both analog and digital connections to the
same source on the AVR. Digital audio is the default,
and the unit will automatically switch to the analog
audio if the digital audio stream stops.
In cases where only a digital source is used, you may
wish to disable the Auto Polling feature to prevent the
AVR from trying to “find” an analog source when the
18
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
digital source is paused. To turn the Auto Polling off for
any input, first make certain that the › cursor is pointing to the AUTO POLL line on the menu screen.
Next, press the ‹/› Navigation Buttons o so
that OFF appears. Repeat the procedure so that
ON appears to restore the Auto Polling feature.
When all needed adjustments have been made, press
the ¤ Button n until the › cursor is next to
BACK TO MASTER MENU to continue with
the system configuration.
Surround Setup
The next step is to set the surround mode you wish
to use with the input that was previously selected in
the INPUT SETUP menu. 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 335, 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, and it is unlikely that
surround-encoded material will be used. Alternatively,
the Logic 7 Music mode is a good choice for stereoonly source material. See page 29 for more information on available surround modes.
When selecting surround modes for digital program
material, the AVR 335 will always examine the data
stream and automatically select Dolby Digital or DTS
as applicable.
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 SURROUND
SELECT line. Press the Set Button p until the
SURROUND SELECTmenu (Figure 3) is on

Figure 3
Each of the option lines on this menu (Figure 3)
selects the surround mode category, and within each
of those categories there will be a choice of the
specific mode options. The choice of modes will
vary according to the speaker configuration in your
system. When the SURR BACK line of the
SPEAKER SETUP menu (Figure 9) is set to
NONE the AVR 335 will be configured for 5.1channel operation, and only the modes appropriate to
a five-speaker system will appear. When the SURR
BACK line of the SPEAKER SETUP menu
(Figure 9) is set to SMALL or LARGE the
AVR 335 will be configured for 6.1/7.1-channel operation, and additional modes such as Dolby Digital EX
and DTS-ES will appear, as they are only available
when seven main speakers are present. In addition,
some of the modes available in the AVR 335 will
not appear unless a digital source is selected and is
playing the correct bitstream. Remember that when
6.1-channel program material is playing, the same
information will be heard through both of the surround
back speakers.
To select the mode that will be used as the initial
default for an input, first press the ⁄ / ¤ Buttons
n until the on-screen cursor is next to the desired
mode’s master category name, such as DOLBY,
DTS, DSP (SURR) or VMAX. Next, press
the Set Button p to view the submenu. Press the
‹/› Buttons o to scroll through the available
choices, and then press the ¤ Button n so that
the cursor is next to BACK TO MASTER

The following few paragraphs detail the instructions
needed for modes with multiple choices.
On the DOLBY menu (Figure 4), choices include
Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II-Music, Dolby Pro
Logic II-Movie, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby 3 Stereo, Dolby
Pro Logic IIx (Movie and Music) and Dolby Virtual
Speaker Reference or Wide. The Dolby Digital EX and
Dolby Pro Logic IIx modes are only available when the
system is set for 6.1/7.1 operation by configuring the
Surround Back speakers to “Small” or “Large” as
described on page 20 or 23. When a disc is playing
that contains a special “flag” signal in the digital audio
data stream, the EX mode will be selected automatically. It may also be selected using this menu or
through the front-panel or remote controls, as shown
on page 28. A complete explanation of these modes
is found on page 29.
When a Dolby Surround mode is selected, a menu will
be shown, as detailed in Figure 4. The choices on this
menu include the selection of the actual surround
mode, the selection of rear channel post-processing

Figure 4
When the cursor is at the MODE line, press the ‹/›
Buttons o to select the desired Dolby Surround
mode. If a Dolby Digital source is playing, the initial
mode will automatically be selected, depending on the
configuration of your system (e.g., 5.1 or 7.1) and the
number of channels in the source being played, you
may also select a combination mode that applies postprocessing so that Dolby Pro Logic IIx may be used to
create back surround channels from a 5.1 source.
This will appear in the MODE line by showing both
the Dolby Digital mode and the second mode, separated by a plus sign (e.g., DOLBY D+DOLBY
PRO LOGIC II MUSIC). Keep in mind that
the Dolby Digital EX and Dolby Pro Logic IIx modes
are only available when the AVR is set for 6.1/7.1
operation by configuring the Surround Back speakers
to “Small” or “Large,” as described on page 20 or 23.
When a disc is playing that contains a special data
“flag” in the digital audio data stream, the Dolby Digital
EX mode will automatically be selected. This mode
may also be selected using this menu or through the
front-panel or remote controls, as shown on page 28.
A complete selection of the available Dolby surround
modes is found in the chart on page 29.
When Dolby Pro Logic II Music or Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Music is selected as the listening mode, three special
settings are available to tailor the sound field to your
listening room environment and your individual taste
and preferences. (When other Dolby Surround modes
are selected, dotted lines will indicate that these settings are not active.)
• Center Width: This setting adjusts the balance of
the vocal information in the front soundstage
between the center and front left/right speakers. The
lower settings spread the center channel sound
more broadly into the left and right channels. A
higher number (up to “7”) produces a tighter center
channel presentation.
• Dimension: This setting alters the perceived depth
of the surround field by creating a shallower presentation that appears to move sounds toward the front
To change these parameters, press the ¤/ ⁄
Navigation Buttons n while the DOLBY
SURROUND menu is on the screen until the ›
cursor is pointing to the line on the menu with the
parameter you wish to change. Then, press the
‹ / › Navigation Buttons o to alter the setting
to your taste.
The Night mode is a feature of Dolby Digital that uses
special processing to preserve the dynamic range and
full intelligibility of a movie soundtrack while reducing
the peak level. This prevents abruptly loud transitions
from disturbing others, without reducing the sonic
impact of a digital source. The Night mode is only
available when specially encoded Dolby Digital signals
are played.
To adjust the Night mode setting, make certain that the
› cursor is on the NIGHT line of the DOLBY
menu. Next, press ‹ / › Buttons o to choose
between the following settings, as they appear in the
on-screen display:
OFF: When OFF appears, the Night mode will not
function.
MID: When MID appears, a mild compression will
be applied.
MAX: When MAX appears, a more severe
compression algorithm will be applied.
We recommend that you select the MID setting as a
starting point and change to the MAX setting later, if
desired.
The Night mode may also be adjusted directly any
time a Dolby Digital source is playing by pressing the
Night Mode Button l. When the button is
pressed, D-RANGE will appear in the lower third
of the video screen and in the Lower Display Line
¯. Press the ⁄/¤ Buttons within 3 seconds to
select the desired setting.
The last option line in this menu is the setting to turn
the unit’s upsampling feature on or off. In normal use,
this feature is turned off, which means that digital
sources are processed at their native sample rate. For
example, a 48kHz digital source will be processed at
48kHz. However, the AVR 335 allows you to upsample the incoming 48kHz signals to 96kHz for added
resolution.
To take advantage of this feature, press the ⁄/¤
Navigation Button n so that the › cursor is next
to the UPSAMPLING line and press the ‹/›
Navigation Button o so that ON is highlighted in
reverse video. Note that this feature is only available
for the Dolby Pro Logic II-Music, Dolby Pro Logic IIMovie, Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby 3 Stereo modes.
When all settings for the surround setup have been
made, press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n so that the ›
cursor is next to BACK TO MASTER MENU,
and press the Set Button p to return to the
MASTER MENU.
On the DTS menu, the choices made with the ‹/›
Buttons o on the remote are determined by a
combination of the type of program material in use
and whether the 5.1- or 6.1/7.1-channel configuration is in use.
When a DTS source is playing, the choice of modes
for 7.1 systems will vary according to the type of program source (DTS 5.1, DTS-ES Matrix or DTS-ES
Discrete). Press the ‹ / › Buttons o to scroll
through the choices that are available for your system
and the program in use. The DTS Neo:6 Music mode
is available with analog stereo sources and the DTS
Neo:6 Cinema mode is available with analog matrix
surround-encoded sources to deliver an enhanced
5.1-channel 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. When a non-ES DTS
disc is in use, you may select the DTS-ES Matrix
mode through this menu to create a full eight-speaker
surround mode. See page 29 for a complete explanation of the DTS modes.
On the LOGIC 7 menu, the choices made with
the ‹/› Buttons o on the remote are determined
by whether the 5.1- or 6.1/7.1-channel configuration
is in use. In either case, the selection of a Logic 7
mode enables Harman Kardon’s exclusive Logic 7
processing to create fully enveloping, multichannel
surround sound 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/

Cinema modes may be selected. The Logic 7 modes
are not available when either Dolby Digital or DTS
digital soundtracks are in use. See page 29 for a
complete explanation of the Logic 7 modes.
On the DSP (SURR) menu, the choices made
with the ‹/› Buttons o 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 page 29 for a complete explanation of
the DSP surround modes.
On the STEREO menu, the choices made with
the ‹/› Buttons o on the remote may either
turn the surround processing off for a traditional twochannel 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 twochannel presentation to all speakers, regardless of the
number of speakers in use. See page 29 for a complete explanation of the 5 Stereo and 7 Stereo
modes.
To listen to a stereo source without any bass management, so that the left and right speakers receive a fullrange signal straight through from the input gain section to the volume control, press the ‹/› Buttons
o so that SURROUND OFF is shown. To
listen to two-channel sources with the bass management settings that will be established in the next
section, press the ‹/› Buttons o so that
SURROUND OFF DSP is shown.
After the selections are made on the Dolby, DTS,
Logic 7, DSP (Surround) or Stereo menus, press the

Automated Speaker Setup Using EzSet+
The AVR 335 is one of the first receivers in its class to
offer automated speaker setup and system calibration.
This process greatly simplifies the installation of your
new receiver by using a series of test signals and
the power of an advanced digital signal processing
system to eliminate the need for manual adjustment
of speaker “size”, crossover, delay and output level
settings. With EzSet+ your new receiver even alerts
you to errors in speaker connections that prevent a
speaker from functioning.
20
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
With EzSet+ you are able to calibrate your system in a
fraction of the time it would take to enter the settings
manually, and with results that rival those achieved with
expensive test equipment and time-consuming procedures. The end result is a system calibration profile
that enables your new receiver to deliver the best possible sound, no matter what type of speakers you have
or what the dimensions of your listening room are.
We recommend that you take advantage of the precision of EzSet+ to calibrate your system, but if desired
you may also make any of the configuration settings
manually, or trim the settings provided by EzSet+ by
following the instructions on pages 22 through 26.
If you wish to configure your AVR manually, or if for
some reason your EzSet+ microphone is unavailable,
you may still do so by following the instructions on
pages 22 through 26.
Step 1: EzSet+ requires that your listening room have
as little background noise as possible to avoid interfering with the measurement of tones produced by your
AVR during the setup procedure. Turn off all loud fans,
air conditioners and other equipment, and try to avoid
making any noise during the process.
Step 2: The EzSet+ microphone should be placed in
either your usual listening position or, if there is a large
seating area, the center of the room, at the listeners’
ear level. You may find it convenient to use a camera
tripod for stable placement of the EzSet+ microphone
at the correct height. The microphone includes a
threaded insert on the bottom for tripod mounting.
Step 3: Plug the EzSet+ microphone into the
AVR 335’s Headphone Jack 4, making certain
that the mini-plug to 1/4" phone plug adaptor supplied with the microphone is firmly connected. The
microphone cable is approximately 20 feet long,
which should accommodate most listening room situations. If required, you may use an optional extension
cable, available at most electronics stores, for use in
larger rooms. However, we recommend that you avoid
using extension cords for the microphone cable, as
they may adversely affect the test results.
Step 4: Once the microphone is properly positioned
and plugged in, proceed to the EzSet+ menus by
first pressing the OSD Button v to bring the
MASTER MENU to the screen. Next, press the
⁄/¤ Navigation Buttons n to move the onscreen cursor to the EzSet+ menu line. Press
the Set Button p to move to the next screen
(Figure 5).
Step 5: The first screen of the EzSet+ system will
now appear to remind you to plug in the microphone.
If you have not already done so, plug the microphone
into the Headphone Jack 4 as described in steps
2 and 3. When you are ready to proceed, make certain that the cursor is pointing to YES and press the
Set Button p. If you do not wish to continue with
the EzSet+ process, press the ‹/› Navigation
Buttons o and then press the Set Button p to
return to the MASTER MENU. Note that if you
attempt to move to the next menu without plugging in
the microphone, a reminder message will flash at the
bottom of the screen.

Step 6: After entering YES to start the EzSet+ system, you will next see a brief warning message, and
the screen will then change to the main EzSet+ menu.
The WARNING screen is a reminder that in order
for the system to perform accurate measurements, it
is important that the listening room be as quiet as
possible. After 5 seconds, the screen will change again
to display the main EzSet+ menu (Figure 6).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Anyone with hearing that is sensitive to loud noises should leave the room at this
point, or use ear protection sufficient to reduce the
noise level. Inexpensive foam-style ear plugs, available
at most drug stores, may be used to reduce the sound
level to a tolerable level. If you are uncomfortable with,
or cannot tolerate, loud sounds and do not use some
sort of ear protection, we strongly recommend that
you leave the room and ask someone else to run the
EzSet+ process, or that you do not use EzSet+ and
enter the configuration settings manually, as described
on pages 22 through 26.
Step 7: The WARNING screen will automatically
be replaced by the main EzSet+ menu (Figure 6).
While this screen is visible, you may start and stop the
calibration process, or monitor the progress of the
measurements and view the results. When the screen
first appears, you will see MEASUREMENT:
STOP on the first line of the menu list. To start the
EzSet+ test process, you must first tell the system
how many speakers are in your system. To do that,
choose one of these two options:
• If your system includes a full complement of seven
main speakers (front left/center/front right/surround
right/surround back right/surround back left/surround left) and a subwoofer, press the ‹/›
Navigation Buttons o so that 7.1 appears to
the right of MEASUREMENT, and then press
the Set Button p to start EzSet+.
• If your system includes a traditional surround speaker
complement of five main speakers (front left/center/
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
front right/surround right/surround left) and a subwoofer, press the ‹/› Navigation Buttons
o so that 5.1 appears to the right of
MEASUREMENT, and then press the Set
Button p to start EzSet+. To stop the calibration
process at any time, press the ⁄/¤ Navigation
Buttons n to move the on-screen cursors
to the MEASUREMENT line; press the ‹/›
Navigation Buttons o so that STOP appears
and press the Set Button p.

Step 8: Once EzSet+ has been started, you will hear
test signals circulate among all of the speakers as the
system sets the master level, checks to see where
there are speakers, sets the distance measurement
and calculates delay time settings, sets the speaker
“size”, and sets the speaker crossover point. During
the measurement and calibration process, you may
observe the progress of the testing by reading the
messages that appear in the second line of the menu
listing. When the EzSet+ screen first appears, it contains a series of dashes, but as the test and measurement proceeds, you will see the following messages
as the individual measurements are taken:
• System Level: A SETTING VOLUME
message will appear to indicate that the system is
setting the overall volume level to the proper level
as a prelude to testing the individual channels.
During this test, you will see a message in the last
line of the menu screen change as the volume level
is adjusted.
• Speaker Check: The system will circulate a test
signal to determine which channels have a speaker
connected. During this test, you will see the name
of each channel position displayed while a signal is
sent to that speaker.
NOTE: While this test detects whether a speaker is
connected to a particular output, it cannot determine
whether the speaker is in the correct position. (For
example, it can tell whether a speaker is connected
to the Surround Right output, but it cannot tell
whether the speaker is on the right or left side of
your listening room.) For that reason, we strongly
recommend that you try to listen as the tone circulates, matching the name shown for each channel to
the location of the speaker. If a tone is heard from a
speaker position that does not match the on-screen
message, stop EzSet+, exit the menus, turn your
receiver off and check for proper speaker connections on the rear panel before resuming the setup.
When this test is complete, YES will be shown to
the right of SPEAKER CHECK on the menu
screen.
• Speaker Delay: This test will circulate the tones
again as the name of each channel is shown to
measure the distance from the microphone to each
speaker. The results of these tests will be used to
set the delay time settings for each active speaker
position. When this test is complete, a speaker-tomicrophone (listening position) distance will be
shown to the right of SPEAKER DELAY
line on the menu screen.
• Speaker Level: This test circulates a test signal
and measures the output from each active speaker
position. The results of the measurements are used
to adjust the individual channel outputs as needed,
so that they are identical. This is an essential element of ensuring that surround sound fields are
properly reproduced. If desired, you may use the
results of the automated testing as a baseline and
then make manual adjustments to trim the output
levels to your personal taste, following the instructions shown on page 25 or 33. When this test is
complete, an output level adjustment number will be
shown to the right of SPEAKER LEVEL line
on the menu screen.
• Speaker Size: The measurements and calculations
for this test take place at the same time as the test
signals are circulated to calculate the output levels,
and they are used to determine whether the speakers
in your system are “large” or “small” for the purposes of bass management. (If desired, you may use
the results of the automated testing as a baseline
and then make manual adjustments to the speaker
size settings on a source-independent basis, following the instructions shown on page 24.) When this
test is complete, an output level adjustment number
will be shown to the right of the SPEAKER
SIZE line on the menu screen.
• Speaker Crossover: The measurements and calculations for this test take place at the same time as
the test signal is circulated to calculate the levels,
and they are used to determine the crossover setting for each speaker in your system to create a
seamless transition between the frequencies sent to
your main speakers and subwoofer (if available). If
desired, you may use the results of the automated
testing as a baseline and then make manual adjustments to the crossover settings on a source-independent basis, following the instructions shown on
page 24. When this test is complete, a crossover
frequency will be shown to the right of the
SPEAKER X-OVER line on the menu
screen.
Step 9: When all measurements are successfully
completed, the test signals will stop and a TEST
DONE – UNPLUG MIC message will appear
in the second line of the on-screen menu listings.
Unplug the microphone and store it in a safe place so
that it is available to recalibrate your system if needed
due to a change in speakers, preferred listening position, or a major change in the room’s furnishings (such
as the addition of thick carpeting or plush furniture)
that might require different settings. To enter the settings to the receiver’s memory and return to the
Master Menu, press the ⁄/¤ Navigation Buttons
n so that the on-screen cursor is pointing to
RETURN TO MASTER MENU and
press the Set Button p.
NOTE: If you wish to check the test results before
exiting the EzSet+ menu, press the ⁄/¤
Navigation Buttons n so that the on-screen cursor is at the second line of the menu listings, and then
press the ‹/› Navigation Buttons o to scroll
through the list of speaker positions. The data on
each line will also be entered into the listings on the
individual SPEAKER SETUP, DELAY
ADJUST and CHANNEL ADJUST menus
once you exit EzSet+.
Step 10: If the measurements are not successful due
to a missing or malfunctioning speaker, an ERROR
message and menu will appear, as shown in Figure 7.
The EzSet+ system is programmed to look for speaker pairs at the front left/front right, surround left/surround right and surround back left/surround back right
positions. If the tests to any of those three channel
pairs indicates that one, but not both of the speakers
in the pair is present, the menu will show NONE
next to the speaker position where the tests did not
report back that a speaker is present. Should this
message appear, make note of the suspect speaker
location, exit all menus and turn the receiver off.
Check all speaker wire connections and then
rerun EzSet+.

When you have successfully completed the EzSet+
process and made any needed adjustments to the
input and surround mode configurations, your receiver
is ready for use. If you do not wish to make any manual adjustments to the settings, you may skip the rest
of this section and proceed to the Basic Operation
section of this manual on page 27 to learn how to
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
operate AVR 335. For those situations where you may
wish to make a change to the settings entered by
EzSet+, follow the instructions on the following pages.
Speaker Setup
This menu tells the AVR 335 which type of speakers
are in use. This is important as it adjusts the settings
that decide whether your system will use the “5-channel” or “6-channel/7-channel” modes, as well as
determining which speakers receive low-frequency
(bass) information.
If you have already completed an automated setup
using EzSet+ the settings calculated during that procedure will already appear. No further adjustment is
required unless you wish to change a specific item to
reflect your personal taste or a nonstandard system
configuration.
For each of these settings, use the LARGE setting
if the speakers for a particular position are traditional
full-range loudspeakers. Use the SMALL setting for
smaller, frequency-limited satellite speakers that do
not reproduce sounds below 60Hz. 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.
This menu screen also allows you to enter the settings
for the AVR 335’s Quadruple Crossover feature, which
allows a different crossover point to be used for the
front left/right, center and surround speakers. In
systems where full-range or tower speakers are used
for the front soundstage or where different brands
or models are in use at the various speaker positions,
this feature allows you to customize the bass management and redirection circuits with a precision not
previously possible.
It is easiest to enter the proper settings for speaker
setup through the SPEAKER SETUP menu
(Figure 9). 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 until the cursor is
on the SPEAKER SETUP line. At this point,
press the Set Button p to bring up the
SPEAKER SETUP menu (Figure 8).

MENU
Figure 8
The first line of the SPEAKER SETUP menu
(Figure 8) allows you to switch the menu to change
either the speaker size setting or the exact crossover
point used for that speaker group. For the first pass
through the menu, leave the setting at its default
option of SIZE, and then proceed as outlined
below. Once the speaker choices have been set, you
may wish to return to this line to change the option so
that the crossover settings may be adjusted.
Begin the speaker setup process by making certain that
the cursor is 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 so that either LARGE or SMALL appears,
matching the appropriate description from the definitions
shown above.
When SMALL is selected, low frequencies will be
sent only to the subwoofer output. If you choose this
option and there is no subwoofer, you will not hear any
low-frequency 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.
NOTE: When the front speakers are set to the
LARGE option and the surround mode is set to
"Surround Off", or pure two-channel stereo, when an
analog signal source is present it will be routed directly
from the input to the volume control without being digitized or processed. If you have full-range front speakers
and wish to remove all digital processing from the circuit
path, select this configuration. If you wish to set this
option for use with only one input, such as a CD player
that uses an external DAC or an optional, external
phono preamp, choose the INDEPENDENT
setting on the BASS MGR line at the bottom of
this menu so that only those inputs where the analog
bypass is desired will be routed in this fashion, while
other analog inputs such as a VCR or cable box will be
digitized for surround processing.
When you have completed your selection for the front
channel, press the ¤ Button n to move the cursor
to CENTER.
Press the ‹ / › Buttons o 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.
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,
the “large” option will not be 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 to move the
cursor to SURROUND.
Press the ‹ / › Buttons o to select the option that
best describes your surround speakers 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 channel.
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 Virtual Speaker mode
should be used.
NOTE: In order to adjust the speaker settings for the
surround back channels, a Dolby Digital or DTS source
must be playing. This enables the system to activate
the surround back processing mode.
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
When you have completed your selections for the
main surround channels, press the ¤ Button n on
the remote to move the cursor to SURR BACK.
This line serves two functions in that it not only
configures the setting for the surround back channels
when they are present; it also tells the AVR 335’s
processing system to configure the unit for either 5.1
or 6.1/7.1 operation.
When MAIN appears on this line, the system is
configured for 7.1 operation with the surround back
left/right Speaker Outputs 9 receiving the main
channel feed. When MULTI appears, those outputs will receive the feed from the multiroom system
and an optional power qualifier must be connected to
the SBL/SBR Preamp Outputs 6 for 7.1 operation.
Press the ‹/› Buttons o to select the option that
best describes the speakers in use at the left and right
back surround positions based on the definitions on
this page:
When NONE is selected, the system will adjust so
that only 5.1-channel surround processing/decoding
modes are available and the surround back amplifier
channels will not be used. When this is the case for
your system you may wish to take advantage of the
availability of this amplifier channel pair for use in powering a second set of speakers that have their source
selected by the AVR 335’s multiroom control system.
See page 35 for more information.
When SMALL is selected, the system will adjust so
that the full complement of 6.1/7.1 surround processing/
decoding modes are available, and low-frequency
information below the crossover point will be sent to
the subwoofer output. If you choose this option and
there is no subwoofer connected, you will not hear any
low-frequency sounds from the surround back channel.
When LARGE is selected, the system will adjust so
that all 6.1/7.1 surround processing/decoding modes
are available, and a full-range signal will be sent to
the surround back channels, with no low-frequency
information sent to the subwoofer output.
When you have completed your selection for the back
surround channels, press the ¤ Button n to move
the cursor to SUBWOOFER.
Press the ‹ / › Buttons o on the remote to select
the option that best describes your system.
If the front left/right speakers are set to LARGE,
three options are available:
• If no subwoofer is connected to the AVR 335,
press the ‹ / › Buttons o 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.
• If a subwoofer is connected to the AVR 335, 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 335 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 the ‹/ › Buttons o 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 so
that SUB LFE+L/R appears in the onscreen menu. When this option is selected, a fullrange signal will be sent to the front left/right
“main” speakers, and the subwoofer will receive
the bass frequencies under frequency selected,
as described below.
When all initial speaker “size” settings have been
made, you now have the option to take advantage of
the AVR 335’s Quadruple Crossover system, which
allows individual crossover settings to be made for
each speaker grouping. The low-frequency crossover
point is set by the design of your speakers. Depending
on the design and driver complement of your speakers, it is defined as the frequency below which the signal should be redirected to the subwoofer, and is
therefore usually the lowest possible frequency the
speaker is capable of reproducing. If your main speakers include an onboard powered woofer section
intended to serve the function of a subwoofer, the
crossover point should be set at the frequency where
the loudspeaker divides the signal between its powered woofer section and any other drivers.
The choices available for the subwoofer position will
depend on the settings for the other speakers, particularly the front left/right positions.
If you have already run EzSet+ the settings calculated
during that procedure will already appear. No further
adjustment is required unless you wish to conform a
specific item to your personal taste or a nonstandard
system configuration.
If the front left/right speakers are set to SMALL,
the subwoofer will automatically be set to SUB,
which is the “on” position.
Before making any changes to the settings for the
crossover point, we suggest that you find the
crossover point for the speakers in each of the three
groupings, front left/right, center and surrounds, by
looking at the specifications page of the speakers’
owner’s manual, by getting that information from the
manufacturer’s Web site, or by contacting your dealer
or the manufacturer’s customer service department.
You will need this figure to accurately configure the
next group of settings.
The factory default setting for all speaker positions is
100Hz. If that setting is acceptable for all channels,
no adjustments are needed and you may skip this
section. Should you wish to change a setting, proceed
by pressing the ⁄ Button n so that the cursor
moves back up to the top of the list of setting options.
Press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n so that X-OVER
is highlighted and the menu data will change to the
screen shown in Figure 9.

To change the setting for any of the three speaker
groups, press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n until the cursor
is next to the line where you wish to make a change
and then press the ‹ / › Buttons o until the
desired setting appears. The available choices at which
point low-frequency information will be sent to the
subwoofer, rather than to the main speaker channel,
are 40Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 150Hz and 200Hz.
Pick the choice that is identical to the information for
the speakers, or if an exact match is not possible, pick
the closest choice that is ABOVE the speaker’s lowfrequency limit or crossover point to avoid the creation
of a low-frequency “hole” where your system will have
no bass information.
In cases where LARGE is selected as the front
channel speaker option and LFE+L/R is selected
as the subwoofer option, the front channel sound
information below the setting shown will be sent to
BOTH the front channel speakers and the subwoofer.
The crossover settings for the Left/Right, Center,
Surround and Surround Back speakers are used to
determine where bass information is sent when it is
derived from the main channels of a source. The setting for the menu line shown as LFE is used to
impose a low-pass filter point for the information in the
Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel that is a part of
Dolby Digital- and DTS-encoded source material.
While the LFE channel, which is the “.1” you see in
surround sound designations, is restricted to low frequency sounds, some mixes may include information
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
23
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
that is higher in frequency than your subwoofer is
capable of reproducing. To prevent unwanted sounds
from being sent to subwoofers that cannot handle
them and which do not have a built-in low-pass filter,
the LFE option line enables you to select a setting
for the low-pass filter that is part of the subwoofer
feed from the LFE channel.
The settings available are the same as those tied to
any one of the four available speaker positions on this
menu. We recommend that you use the frequency that
is just slightly higher than the upper capability limit of
your subwoofer, as shown in the sub's Owner's
Manual. When the cursor is on the LFE line, press
the ‹ / › Navigation Buttons o to choose the
appropriate setting.
When all crossover settings have been made, or in
those cases where none are needed, press the ¤
Button n so that the cursor is next to the BASS
MGR line to make the final setting on this menu.
This setting allows you to use the same speaker size
configuration for all inputs, or to have different settings
for each input. In most cases the factory default setting of GLOBAL will be appropriate, as most listeners do not need to have individualized speaker settings. However, some listeners, particularly those with
full-range front speakers that are used for both movies
and music, may prefer that different bass management
settings be used when listening to music through a CD
player as opposed to a movie from a DVD player, VCR
or cable/satellite set-top.
To customize the speaker setting for each input, make
certain that the MODE line of the SPEAKER
SETUP menu is set to SIZE, and that the cursor is on the BASS MGR line, and press the ‹ / ›
Buttons o so that INDEPENDENT appears
in highlighted video. When this setting is entered by
exiting the menu, the configuration settings just
entered will apply to the current input ONLY, and you
will need to go back to the INPUT SETUP
menu to select another input, and then return to this
menu page again to change the settings for the next
input. Repeat the procedure for any input where you
wish to have a different set of speaker configuration
and crossover settings.
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
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
24
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
the timing for the speaker placement and acoustic
conditions in your listening room or home theater.
If you have already calibrated your system using
EzSet+ the delay settings shown will reflect the results
of the measurements made by EzSet+. No further
changes are needed unless you wish to change an
item to reflect your taste or a nonstandard system
configuration. To change the settings, follow the
instructions below to enter the distance between the
speaker’s location and your main listening position.
The measurements need not be accurate to the inch,
as the system is designed to accommodate typical
listening rather than a specific “sweet spot” position.
In addition to adjusting the delay time for each individual speaker position, the AVR 335 allows you to adjust
the delay for the combined output of all speakers as a
group. This feature is called A/V Sync Delay; it allows
you to compensate for delays to the video image that
may be caused by the processing in products such as
digital video displays, video scalers, digital cable or
satellite systems, or personal video recorders. With
proper adjustment of the setting for A/V Sync Delay,
you can eliminate the loss of lip sync that may be
caused by digital video applications.
Although EzSet+ calculates the delay settings for the
individual speaker positions with very accurate results,
the setting for A/V Sync Delay may only be done
manually, since it requires that you observe the program material on your video display while adjusting the
delay, if any, required for the specific source. Thus,
even though you may have used EzSet+ for other
delay settings, the A/V Sync Delay should still be configured as outlined below.
Due to the differences in the way surround modes
operate, some allow for a wider range of delay times
than others. We recommend that delay times be
adjusted using the Dolby Digital mode. If a different
mode is selected at a later time, the AVR 335 will
automatically restrict the delay settings to those
required by the surround mode in use.
Delay times are only adjustable for the Dolby modes,
so you will notice that the DELAY menu may not
be accessed when any other mode, such as a DTS or
Logic 7 option, has been selected. In addition, when
a non-Dolby Digital mode such as Dolby 3 Stereo or
Pro Logic II is selected, adjustments may be made to
the Surround speakers only.
To set the delay time for a specific input, the
DELAY ADJUST menu (Figure 10) 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 until the on-screen › cursor is pointing at
the DELAY ADJUST line. Press the Set
Button p to call up the menu.
NOTE: In order to adjust the Delay settings for the
surround back channels, a Dolby Digital or DTS source
must be playing. This enables the system to activate
the surround back processing mode.

center speaker to the preferred listening position is
entered. Repeat the procedure for all active speaker
positions, first using the ¤ Navigation Button n
to change to the next position, and then use the ‹/ ›
Navigation Button n to change the setting. Note
that only the speaker positions that have been set to
LARGE or SMALL in the SPEAKER
SETUP menu, as shown on page 20, may be
adjusted. The appearance of three dashes next to a
speaker position in place of a distance setting indicates that you have not configured an active speaker
for that location.
When the delay time for all speaker positions has
been set you may return to the master menu by
pressing the ⁄/ ¤ Navigation Button n until the
› cursor is pointing to BACK TO MASTER
MENU and then pressing the Set Button p.
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
However, if you have a digital video source or a digital
video display that causes lack of lip sync you may use
the A/V Sync adjust feature to delay the audio signal
as it is sent to all channels (as opposed to the individual settings) so that the picture and sound are brought
back together. We recommend that this adjustment be
made using the direct access controls on the remote,
as shown below. That enables you to see the image
while making the adjustment; however, you may also
adjust it here using the menu system.
To adjust the A/V Sync delay, press the ⁄/ ¤
Navigation Button n so that the › cursor is
pointing to the A/V Sync Delay line on the menu
and then press the ‹/ › Navigation Button o
to delay the sound sufficiently so that it matches the
on-screen video.
Since the A/V Sync Delay setting is best made while
viewing the video program that is out of sync with its
audio track, we strongly recommend that rather than
using the menu system. To do that, first press the
Delay Select Button on the Remote Z.
The A/V Sync Delay setting is first, and it may be
adjusted by pressing the Set Button p within five
seconds of when the A/V SYNC DELAY
message appears in the on-screen display and the
Lower Display Line ¯. Then, press the ‹/ ›
Navigation Button o to enter the desired delay
setting that brings the video and sound back in sync.
Press the Set Button p again to enter the setting.
Note that the A/V Sync delay setting is unique to each
video input source, so you may enter a different setting to compensate for the differences between any
product attached to the Video 1, 2, 3 or 4 inputs.
To change one of the individual speaker positions
directly, press the Speaker Select Button Z,
followed by the ⁄/ ¤ Navigation Button n to
select the desired position as that name appears in the
on-screen display and the Lower Display Line ¯.
When the name of the speaker position to be adjusted
appears, press the Set Button p within 5 seconds.
Press the ‹/ › Navigation Button o to enter
the desired delay setting for that speaker and then
press the Set Button p to enter the setting. The
⁄/ ¤ Navigation Button n may be used to
select another position, or simply wait 5 seconds for
the system to time out and return to normal operation.
When all delay settings made using the menu system
have been completed, press the ⁄/ ¤ Navigation
Button n until the › cursor is pointing to the
BACK TO MASTER MENU line and press
the Set Button p.
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 335,
as correct outputs ensure that you hear soundtracks
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 or 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.
If you have already calibrated your system using
EzSet+ the delay settings shown will reflect the results
of the measurements made by EzSet+. No further
changes are needed unless you wish to change a
specific item to reflect your personal taste or a nonstandard 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.
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+.
Using the Full-OSD System
Manual output level adjustment is most easily done
through the CHANNEL ADJUST menu
(Figure 11).
1. If you have not used EzSet+, make certain that all
speaker positions have been properly configured
for their “large” or “small” settings (see “Speaker
Setup” on page 22).
2. Adjust the volume to -10dB as shown in the
on-screen display or Lower Display Line ¯.
3. If you are already at the MASTER MENU,
press the ¤ Button n until the on-screen ›
cursor is next to the CHANNEL ADJUST
line. If you are not at the MASTER MENU,
press the OSD Button v to bring up the
MASTER MENU (Figure 1), and then press
the ¤ Button n until the on-screen › cursor is
next to the CHANNEL ADJUST line. Press
the Set Button p to bring the CHANNEL
ADJUST menu (Figure 11) to the screen.

Figure 11
When the CHANNEL ADJUST menu first
appears the test tone is off. If desired, you may
immediately use the ⁄/¤ Navigation Button n
to select any channel for adjustment using an external source, such as a test disc, from which to judge
the output levels. After the › cursor is pointing to
the channel to be adjusted, press the ‹/›
Navigation Button o to raise or lower the output
level. However, before proceeding with any manual
adjustment we recommend that you first use the
AVR’s internal test tone generator and automatic
sequencer to send a tone to each channel so that
you may verify that all speaker connections have
been properly made.
4. To turn the test tone on and have it automatically
circulate among the channels where a speaker has
been configured (see page 22), press the ⁄/¤
Navigation Button n until the › cursor is pointing to the TEST TONE SEQ line on the
menu. Next, press the ‹/› Navigation Button
o until AUTO is shown in highlighted video. At
this time the test tone will immediately begin to circulate clockwise around the room, playing for two
seconds in each speaker before switching to the
next speaker position. The › cursor will blink next
to the active speaker to indicate which speaker the
sound should be coming from.
As the test noise circulates, listen to make certain
that the sound comes from the speaker position
shown in the Lower Display Line T, next to the
› cursor in the on-screen display, and by the flashing indication in the Speaker/Channel Input
Indicators ˆ. If the sound from a speaker location does NOT match the position indicated in the
display, turn the AVR 335 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.
5. After checking for speaker placement, let the test
noise circulate again, and listen to see which chan-
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
nels sound louder than the others. Using the front
left speaker as a reference, press the ‹/›
Navigation Button o to bring all speakers to
the same volume level. When the ‹/› Navigation
Button o is pushed, the test noise circulation will
pause on the channel being adjusted to give you
time to make the adjustment. When you release the
button, the circulation will resume after five seconds.
6. Continue to adjust the individual channels until the
volume level sounds the same from each speaker.
Adjustments should be made with the ‹/›
Navigation Button n 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 on the CWeighting, Slow Scale.
You may also make these same adjustments with
complete manual control over the channel being
adjusted by pressing the ⁄/¤ Navigation
Button n until the › cursor is pointing to the
TEST TONE SEQ line on the menu and
then using the ‹/› Navigation Button o to
select MANUAL in the highlighted video. In the
MANUAL mode, the test tone will also start
immediately, but the tone will only be moved to
another channel by pressing the ⁄/¤ Navigation
Button o. When the manual sequencing mode
is active, the tone is turned off by pressing the
⁄/¤ Navigation Button o until the › cursor
is pointing to the TEST TONE line and the
‹/› Navigation Button o is then pressed to
select OFF.
NOTE: The subwoofer level is not adjustable when the
normal test tone is in use. The subwoofer output level
may also be adjusted when the channel levels are
being trimmed to a program source rather than the
test tone, as shown 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 on-screen › cursor is
next to the BACK TO MASTER MENU line,
and then press the Set Button p to return to the
MASTER MENU.
26
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
Using the Semi-OSD System
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 Lower Display Line ¯. While
the test noise is circulating, the proper channel
position will also be indicated in the Speaker/
Channel Input Indicators ˆ by a blinking letter
within the correct channel.
To adjust the output level, press the ⁄/¤ Buttons
n 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 5 seconds.
When all channels have the same output level, press
the Test Button i again to complete the process.
If you find that the output levels are either uncomfortably low or high, you may repeat the procedure, but
first adjust the master volume either slightly higher or
lower (but not higher than 0dB) to compensate. Do
not adjust the volume during the procedure, as that will
cause the output levels to be higher or lower for only
some channels, resulting in uneven balance.
To make channel level adjustments to an external
source, rather than using the AVR's internal test tone,
simply press the Channel Select Button m, and
each individual channel and its level offset will be displayed on-screen in the semi-OSD display. This is the
equivalent of using the CHANNEL ADJUST
menu with the test tone set to OFF.
NOTE: Output level adjustment is not available for the
VMAx or Surround Off modes.
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 INPUT SETUP line on the
MASTER MENU (Figure 1) and enter the settings for each input that you will use. In most cases,
only the digital input and surround mode will be differ-
ent 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.
When all settings and adjustments have been made,
press the OSD Button v to return to normal operation of the AVR.
Once the settings outlined on the previous pages have
been made, the AVR 335 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 33 and 34. 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 335, you are about to experience the
finest in music and home theater listening. Enjoy!
OPERATION
Basic Operation
Once you have completed the initial setup and configuration of the AVR 335, it is simple to operate and
enjoy. The following instructions will help you maximize
the enjoyment of your new receiver:
Turning the AVR 335 On or Off
• When using the AVR 335 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 2. Once the unit is in Standby, you may
begin a listening session by pressing the Standby/On
Switch 3 on the front panel, or the Power On
Button d or AVR Selector f on the remote.
The Power Indicator 2 will turn blue. 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 eg ç∂ on the remote or the
Input Source Selector Button ^ on the front
panel.
NOTE: After pressing one of the Input Selector
Buttons eg to turn the unit on, press the AVR
Selector f to set the remote control to the AVR 335
functions.
SLEEP OFF will appear in the Lower Display
Line ¯.
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 four weeks.
Source Selection
• To select a source, press any of the Input Selector
Buttons egç∂ on the remote.
• 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 335 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 ÓÔ, Optical 3
Digital Input * or the Coaxial 3 Digital Input (
may be used to connect a device such as a video
game or camcorder to your home entertainment
system on a temporary basis.
To turn the unit off at the end of a listening session,
simply press the Standby/On Switch 3 on the
front panel or the Power Off Button aå on
the remote. Power will be shut off to any equipment

6-Channel/8-Channel Direct Input
• There are two input choices available for use with
sources such as a DVD-Audio or SACD player that
are connected to the 6/8-Channel Direct Inputs
j. Select the appropriate input according to how
your system and source equipment are configured:
n
6 CH DIRECT should be used when the
SBR and SBL inputs j are NOT in use. The AVR

• When the headphones are in use, you may take
advantage of the Dolby Headphone modes to bring
added spaciousness to headphone listening. Press
the Dolby Mode Select Button w or the
Surround Mode Group Selector 7 to cycle
through the three Dolby Headphone modes and
select the one that you prefer.
Surround Mode Selection
One of the most important features of the AVR 335
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 pictures or TV
programs bearing the logo of one of the major
surround-encoding processes, such as Dolby Surround
or DTS Stereo, 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.
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 Dolby Pro Logic
II Movie, 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.
Even when a program is not listed as carrying intentional
surround information, you may find that the Dolby Pro
Logic II, Logic 7 Enhanced 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.
Surround modes may be changed at any time by
using either the front panel or remote control. To
select a new surround mode from the front panel, first
press the Surround Mode Group Selector Button
7 until the desired major surround mode group such
as Dolby, DTS or Logic 7 is selected. Next, press the
Surround Mode Selector Button 8 to choose the
specific individual surround mode.

in the Surround Mode Indicators ˘.
As the surround modes change, the appropriate
Surround Mode Indicator ˘ will light to indicate
which mode has been selected.
The Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX and DTS 5.1,
DTS-ES 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 335 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 Digital Audio Playback section below.
The Dolby Pro Logic IIx modes are available only
when the AVR 335 has been configured for 6.1/7.1
operation by setting the Surround Back speakers as
either “Large” or “Small” as described on page 23.
These modes provide a matrixed 6.1-channel presentation of analog sources. See page 29 for more information.

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 high-definition television
(HDTV) system.
An optional, external RF demodulator is required to
use the AVR 335 to listen to the Dolby Digital soundtracks 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 *(dg of the AVR 335. No
demodulator is required for use with DVD players or
DTS-encoded laser discs.

FEATURES
Available only with digital input sources encoded with Dolby Digital data. It provides up to five separate main audio channels and
a special dedicated low-frequency effects (LFE) channel.
Available when the receiver is configured for 6.1/7.1-channel operation, Dolby Digital EX is the latest version of Dolby Digital. When used with
movies or other programs that have special encoding, Dolby Digital EX reproduces specially encoded soundtracks so that a full 6.1/7.1 sound field is
available. When the receiver is set for 6.1/7.1 operation and a Dolby Digital signal is present, the EX mode is automatically selected. Even if specific
EX encoding is not available to provide the additional channel, the special algorithms will derive a 6.1/7.1 output.
When the speaker configuration is set for 5.1-channel operation, the DTS 5.1 mode is available when DVD, audio-only music or laser discs encoded
with DTS data are played. DTS 5.1 provides up to five separate main audio channels and a special dedicated low-frequency channel.
When the speaker configuration is set for 6.1/7.1 operation, playback of a DTS-encoded program source will automatically trigger the selection
of one of the two DTS-ES modes. Newer discs with special DTS-ES discrete encoding will be decoded to provide six discrete, full-bandwidth
channels plus a separate low-frequency channel. All other DTS discs will be decoded using the DTS-ES Matrix mode, which creates a 6.1-channel
sound field from the original 5.1-channel soundtrack.
Dolby Pro Logic II is the latest version of Dolby Laboratory’s benchmark surround technology that decodes full-range, discrete left, center right,
right surround and left surround channels from either matrix surround-encoded programs and conventional stereo sources when an analog input
is in use. The Dolby Pro Logic II Movie mode is optimized for movie soundtracks, while the Pro Logic II Music mode should be used with
musical selections. The Pro Logic mode activates original Pro Logic processing for those who prefer that presentation.
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is the latest extension of Dolby Pro Logic II technology that creates a discrete 6.1 and 7.1 sound field from matrix surround or two-channel
stereo sources in systems configured for surround back speakers. Both Movie and Music versions of Pro Logic IIx are available.
Exclusive to Harman Kardon for A/V receivers, Logic 7 is an advanced mode that extracts the maximum surround information from either
surround-encoded programs or conventional stereo material. Depending on the number of speakers in use and the selection made in the
SURROUND SELECT menu, the “5.1” versions of Logic 7 modes are available when the 5.1 option is chosen, while the “7.1” versions of
Logic 7 produce a full sound field presentation, including back surround speakers when the “6.1/7.1” option is chosen. The Logic 7 C (or Cinema)
mode should be used with any source that contains Dolby Surround or similar matrix encoding. Logic 7 C delivers increased center-channel
intelligibility, and more accurate placement of sounds with fades and pans 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 mode 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
These two modes are available when any analog source is playing to create a six-channel surround presentation from conventional Matrix-encoded
DTS Neo:6 Music
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.
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.
Dolby Virtual Speaker
Dolby Virtual Speaker uses advanced technology to simulate the sonic signature of a speaker location even when there is no speaker physically
Reference
present in that location. The Reference (“REF”) mode activates any missing speakers to simulate a 5.1 presentation with accurate localization.
Wide
The Wide mode virtualizes the locations of the front channel speakers to create a wider image and a more enveloping sound field. It is available no
matter how many speakers are present.
Theater
The Theater mode creates a sound field that resembles the acoustic feeling of a standard live-performance theater.
The two Hall modes create sound fields that resemble a small (Hall 1) and medium-sized (Hall 2) concert hall.
Hall 1, Hall 2
When only the two front-channel loudspeakers are used, Harman’s patented VMAx mode delivers a three-dimensional sound space with the illusion
VMAx Near
VMAx Far
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.
5-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
7-Channel Stereo
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 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.
This mode turns off all surround processing and presents the pure left- and right-channel presentation of two-channel stereo programs.
Surround
When SURROUND OFF is selected, the unit is in a “bypass” mode with no bass management. When SURROUND OFF+DSP is
Off (Stereo)
selected, the signal is digitized and bass management settings are applied.
Dolby Headphone
Dolby Headphone enables ordinary stereo headphones to portray the sound of a five-speaker surround-playback system. The DH1 mode creates a
headphone presentation that resembles a small, well-damped room and is appropriate for use with both movies and music-only recordings. The DH2
DH1
DH2
mode creates a more acoustically live room particularly suited to music listening. The DH3 mode creates a larger room, more like a concert hall or

OPERATION
IMPORTANT NOTE: Many DVD players have a default
setting that does not pass through the DTS data, even
though the machine is capable of doing so. If your
DVD player has the “DTS Digital Out” logo but does
not trigger DTS playback in the AVR 335, change the
player’s settings in the “Audio” or “Bitstream” configuration menu so that DTS playback is enabled. The
method for doing this will vary with each player. In
some cases, the proper menu choice will be “Original,”
while in others it will be “DTS.” Consult the owner’s
manual for your player to find the specific information
to find the proper setting.

shortly after an input or surround mode is changed,
and they will remain in the Lower Display Line ¯
for about five seconds before that portion of the display returns to the normal surround mode indication.

) on the front panel to choose any of the OPTICAL or COAXIAL inputs, as they appear in the
Upper Display Line ˜ or on-screen display. When
the digital source is playing, the AVR 335 will automatically detect which type of digital data stream is being
decoded and display that information in the Upper
Display Line ˜.
Digital Bitstream Indications
When a digital source is playing, the AVR 335 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 or LDs, you
may select any of the standard surround modes, such
as Dolby Pro Logic II or Logic 7. Since the range of
available surround modes is dependent on the type of
digital data that is present, the AVR 335 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, the AVR 335 will display a variety of messages to indicate the type of bit-

Surround Mode Types
For Dolby Digital and DTS sources, a three-digit
indication will appear, showing the number of channels
present in the data. An example of this type of display
is 3/2/.1.
• A “3” tells you that separate front left, center and
front right signals are available. This will be displayed
for Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 programs.
• A “2” tells you that separate front left and right sig41

Digital bitstreams that have stereo program material.
44 48
43
• A “1” tells you that there is only a mono channel
42 available
in the Dolby Digital bitstream.
The middle number indicates how many discrete surround channel signals are present.
• A “2” tells you that separate surround left and right
signals are available. This will be displayed for Dolby
Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 programs.
• A “1” tells you that there is only a single, surroundencoded surround channel. This will appear for
Dolby Digital bitstreams that have matrix encoding.
• A “0” indicates that there is no surround channel
information. This will be displayed for two-channel
stereo programs.
The last number indicates whether there is a discrete
low-frequency effects (LFE) channel. This is the “.1” in
the common abbreviation of “5.1” sound and it is a
special channel that contains only bass frequencies.
• A “.1” tells you that an LFE channel is present. This
will be displayed for Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1
programs, as available.
EX-OFF for Dolby Digital bitstreams, and
ES-ON or ES-OFF for DTS bitstreams.
An UNLOCK message may occasionally appear
in the Lower Display Line ¯. It does not indicate
a fault or problem with your receiver or the digital
source. This is your indication that the digital audio
data stream has been interrupted or is no longer
present.
When the message appears and the indicators flash,
the unit’s digital signal processor has no signal to lock
onto, and is thus “unlocked.” You may see this message when a DVD is first started until the stream is
playing and the processor determines which mode
to apply; or any time the data stream is stopped or
paused, such as when the menus of some discs are
displayed or when the player is switching between the
different sections of a disc. You may also see the message when a satellite receiver, cable set-top or HDTV
tuner is in use if the digital audio is temporarily interrupted when channels are changed or when a cable
box switches from a channel with a digital data stream
to a channel with analog audio only. The UNLOCK
message is normal, and does not indicate any problem with your receiver. Rather, it tells you that the
incoming data has simply been paused or is not present for a variety of possible reasons.
When Dolby Digital 3/2/.1 or DTS 3/2/.1 signals are
being played, the AVR will automatically switch to the
proper surround mode, and no other processing may
be selected. When a Dolby Digital signal with a 3/1/0
or 2/0/0 signal is detected, you may select any of the
Dolby surround modes.
It is always a good idea to check the readout for the
channel data to make certain that it matches the audio
logo information shown on the back of a DVD package. In some cases, you will see an indication for
“2/0/0” even when the disc contains a full 5.1, or
3/2/.1, signal. When this happens, check the audio
output settings for your DVD player or the audio menu
selections for the specific disc being played to make
certain that the player is sending the correct signal
to the AVR.
PCM Playback Indications
• A “0” indicates that there is no LFE channel information available. However, even when there is no
dedicated LFE channel, low-frequency sound will be
present at the subwoofer output when the speaker
configuration is set to show the presence of a
subwoofer.
PCM is the abbreviation for Pulse Code Modulation,
which is the type of digital signal used for standard CD
playback, and other non-Dolby Digital and non-DTS
digital sources such as Mini-Disc. When a PCM signal
is detected, the Lower Display Line ¯ will briefly
show a message with the letters PCM, in addition to a
readout of the sampling frequency of the digital signal.
The information in the right side of the display will tell
you if the digital audio data contains a special flag
signal that will automatically activate the appropriate
6.1 or 7.1 mode. This will be shown as EX-ON or
In most cases, this will be 48kHz, though in the
case of specially mastered, high-resolution audio
discs, you will see a 96kHz indication.
OPERATION
Speaker/Channel Indicators
In addition to the bitstream indicators, the AVR 335
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 12).
Figure 12
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 ˆ on the front panel.
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.
To listen to a PCM digital source, first select the input for
the desired source (e.g., CD). Next press the Digital
Select Button #q and then use the ⁄/¤
Buttons n on the remote, or the ‹/› Selector
Buttons ) on the front panel, until the desired choice
appears in the Upper Display Line ˜.
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 in the Lower Display Line ¯ reads
D-RANGE OFF.
Tuner Operation
The Night mode may also be selected to always be on
at either level of compression using the options in the
DOLBY menu. See page 19 for information on
using the menus to set this option.
Digital signals, however, may have two, five, six or
seven 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 335. 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 335
will automatically sense changes to the bitstream and
channel count and reflect them in these indicators.
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.
IMPORTANT NOTES ON DIGITAL PLAYBACK:
• Although the AVR 335 will decode virtually all current
DVDs, CDs and HDTV sources, it is possible that some
future digital sources may not be compatible with it.
• Not all digitally encoded programs contain full 5.1or 6.1-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 335 will automatically sense the digital surround encoding used and 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,

Memory Backup
This product is equipped with a memory backup that
preserves system configuration information and tuner
presets if the unit is accidentally unplugged or subjected
to a power outage. This memory lasts for approximately
four weeks, after which time all information must be
reentered.
ADVANCED FEATURES
The AVR 335 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.
Front-Panel Display Fade
In normal operation, the front-panel displays and indicators remain on at full brightness, although you may
also dim them or turn them off as shown in the next
section. As an additional option, you may also set the
AVR so that the displays are on whenever a button is
pressed on the front panel or remote, but then fade
out after a set period of time.
To set the front-panel displays to the Fade mode,
press the OSD Button v to bring the Master
Menu (Figure 1) to the screen. Press the ⁄/¤
Navigation Buttons n so that the › cursor is

Turn-On Volume Level
As is the case with most audio/video receivers, when
the AVR 335 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 335
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 SELECT
menu. To start the adjustment, press the OSD Button
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, tuner
frequency or any of the configuration settings are
changed. The semi-OSD system is helpful in that it
provides 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 335.

If you wish to make other adjustments, press the
⁄/¤ Buttons n until the on-screen › cursor is
next to the desired setting or the BACK 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 335, 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
SELECT menu (Figure 13). To start the adjustment, press the OSD Button v to bring the
MASTER MENU to the screen. Press the ¤
Button n, until the on-screen › cursor is next to
the ADVANCED line. Press the Set Button p
to enter the ADVANCED SELECT menu
(Figure 13).
At the ADVANCED SELECT menu (Figure
13) make 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 until the desired time is displayed in seconds. 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.

ADVANCED FEATURES
Default Surround Mode
In normal operation, when the AVR 335 senses a
Dolby Digital or DTS digital audio data stream, it will
automatically switch the appropriate default surround
mode, with the AVR responding to the data flags that
are encoded on the DVD disc or in the digital video
broadcast. In most cases, this is the correct mode, but
you may have a particular preference for the mode
you wish to hear when Dolby Digital or DTS is present.
The AVR 335 allows you to set the unit so that it will
either respond to the default or switch to your
desired mode.
If you wish to leave the default so that the mode
choice encoded in the disc is always used, no further
action is needed. Simply leave the setting at the
factory default of ON.
To set the unit so that it responds to the last surround
mode used when a Dolby Digital or DTS source is
playing, press the ⁄/¤ Buttons n so that the ›
cursor is pointing to the DEFAULT SURR
MODE line. Press the ‹/› Buttons o so that
OFF appears, and the setting will change. The unit
will now use the last mode, not the disc’s default for
the two digitally encoded data streams.
This setting does not apply to standard PCM digital
inputs or to analog sources. In those cases, the unit
will always apply the surround or processing mode
that was last used for that input.
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.
MULTIROOM OPERATION
The AVR 335 is fully equipped to operate as the control center for a complete multiroom system that is
capable of sending one source to a second zone in
the house while a separate source is listened to in the
main room. In addition to providing for control over the
selection of the remote source and its volume, the
AVR 335 offers a comprehensive range of options for
powering the speakers in the second zone.
n Using the line-level Multiroom Audio Outputs ¡,
the selected source may be fed to optional, external power amplifiers that may be matched to the
specifics of the installation.
n When the main room system is configured for 5.1
operation, the Surround Back Left/Right amplifier
channels may be used to power the remote zone
so that no additional amplifiers are required.
In addition, the AVR 335 includes a remote IR sensor
input so that remote control commands from the
Zone II remote included with the unit may be transmitted
to the unit, while standard IR input/output jacks allow
the remote zone’s commands to be sent to compatible
IR-controlled source devices.
Installation
Although simple remote room systems may be
installed by the average do-it-yourself hobbyist, the
complexity of your multizone/multiroom system
involves running wires inside of walls where the
services of a specially trained installer may be
required. Regardless of who does the work, please
remember that local building codes may govern
in-wall electrical work, including proper specification of
any wiring used and the way in which it is connected.
You are responsible for making certain that all multiroom installation work is done properly and in
compliance with all applicable codes and regulations.
For standard installations, follow the instructions shown
on page 14 for the connection of speaker wire and IR
remote wiring to the AVR 335.
For installations where the Surround Back Left/Right
amplifier channels are used to power the remote zone,
make certain that the system is configured for that
type of operation.
Multiroom Setup
Once the audio and IR link connections have been
made, the AVR 335 needs to be configured for multiroom operation. Press the OSD Button v to bring
the MASTER MENU (Figure 1) to the screen.
Press the ¤ Button n, until the on-screen › cursor is next to the MULTI-ROOM line. Press the

Remember that once this setting is made, you will not
be able to take advantage of any of the 6.1/7.1channel decoding or processing modes, and that the
speakers used for the remote zone must be connected
to the Surround Back/Multiroom Speaker Outputs
‚. The volume for these speakers is set by the
multiroom system.
Figure 14
When the MULTI-ROOM menu appears, the
on-screen › cursor will be at the MULTI-ROOM
line. Since this line is used to turn the system on and
off, don’t make an adjustment here unless you wish to
turn the system on at this time. To turn the system on,
press the › Button o so that ON is shown. If you
do not wish to turn the system on at this time, or to
proceed to the next step, press the ¤ Button n
once so that the › on-screen cursor is next to the

At the MULTI VOL line, press the ‹ / › Buttons
o until the desired volume level for the multiroom
system is entered. DO NOT use the regular volume
control knobs for this setting.
Surround Amplifier Channel Assignment
The AVR 335 is equipped with seven full-power
amplifier channels to allow for complete 7.1-channel 49
48
operation without the need for additional external
amplifiers. However, in some installations you may wish35
to use the traditional 5.1-channel configuration for the
34
main listening room, which allows the surround back
33
left/right amplifier channels to be used to power
32
speakers placed in a remote zone location.
31
If you wish to use the Surround Back channel ampli- 30
fiers to power the remote zone, you must change a
29
setting in the MULTIROOM SETUP menu.
28
Once this setting is made, you may press the ¤
Button n to make any of the other adjustments
available on this menu. If no other adjustments are
needed, press the OSD Button v to exit the
menu system. When all settings for the multiroom
setup have been made, press the ⁄/¤ Buttons
n until the on-screen › cursor is next to the
BACK TO MASTER MENU line. If you have
no other adjustments to make, press the OSD Button
v to exit the menu system.
Multiroom Operation
When operating the AVR 335 from a remote room
location where an IR sensor link has been connected
to the AVR 335’s rear-panel Multiroom IR Input ∞,
you may use either the main remote control or the
Zone II remote. To turn on the multiroom feed, press
any of the Input Selector buttons on the Zone II
remote ç∂ or the main remote eg. Press

MULTIROOM OPERATION
To turn the system off from the remote room, press
the Power Off Button aå. Remember that the
AVR 335 may be turned on or off from the remote
room, regardless of the system’s operation or status in
the main room.
NOTE: When the tuner is selected as the source for
the remote zone, any change to the frequency or preset will also change the station being listened to in the
main room, if the tuner is in use there. Similarly, if
someone in the main room changes the station, the
change will also impact the remote room.

PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE
The AVR 335 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
home theater equipment. Once the AVR 335’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, universal
remote control.
Programming the Device Codes
The AVR 335 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 335 remote.

Point the AVR 335’s remote toward the unit to be
32
42
30 21 33
programmed, and enter the first three-digit code
28 31 20 32
31
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.
5. If the device to be programmed in does NOT turn
off, continue to enter three-digit codes 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 Input
Selector e 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 335’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 335 remote.

correct code is in use.
4. Press the Input Selector e; the red light under
the Input Selector will flash three times before
going dark to confirm the entry.
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 Auto-Search 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.

49
48
Once the AVR 335’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 335 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 335, 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 335. 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 on pages 41
and 42. To use those tables, first check the type of
device being controlled (e.g., TV, VCR). Next, look at
the remote control diagram in Figure 15. 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 335, but it is the
“Favorite” button for many cable television boxes
and satellite receivers. Button number 31 is the Delay
button for the AVR 335, but the Open/Close button for
CD players.
NOTE: The numbers used to show the button functions in Figure 15 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 335.
Notes on Using the AVR 335 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.
PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE
• When a button is pressed on the AVR 335 remote,
the red light under the Input Selector ef 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.

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 “Punch-Through” 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. However, once the remote is
reset, all commands or codes that you have entered will
be erased and will need to be reentered:
1. Press any of the Input Selector Buttons e and
the “O” Button r at the same time until the
Program Indicator c begins to flash amber.
2. Press the “3” Button r three times.
3. The red LED under the Input Selector e will go
out and the Program Indicator c will stop flashing and turn green.
4. The Program 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 that need to be erased.
5. When the Program Indicator c goes out, the
remote has been reset to the factory settings.

In the rare case where the unit’s operation or the displays seem abnormal, the cause may involve the erratic
operation of the system’s memory or microprocessor.
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.
To clear the AVR 335’s entire system memory including tuner presets, output level settings, delay times and
speaker configuration data, press and hold the Tone
Mode Button 5 buttons for three seconds. The unit
will turn on automatically.
NOTE: Resetting the processor will erase any configuration settings you have made for speakers, output
levels, surround modes and digital input assignments,
as well as the tuner presets. The unit will be returned
to the factory presets, and all settings for these items
must be reentered.
If the system is still operating incorrectly, there may
have been an electronic discharge or severe AC line
interference that has corrupted the memory or
microprocessor.
If these steps do not solve the problem, consult an
authorized Harman Kardon service center.
