Introduction
Please register your product on our Web site at www.harmankardon.com.
Note: You’ll need the product’s serial number. At the same time, you can
choose to be notified about our new products and/or special promotions.
Thank You for Choosing Harman Kardon Products!
In the years since Harman Kardon engineers invented the high-fidelity receiver, we have
taken to heart this philosophy: Bringing the joy of home entertainment to as many people
as possible, adding performance and ease-of-use features that enhance the experience.
The BDS series of home entertainment systems offers a complete home entertainment
solution with a wealth of listening and viewing options in one sleek receiver.
s Due to the heat generated by the receiver there is the remote possibility that the
rubber padding on the bottom of the unit’s feet may leave marks on certain wood
or wood-veneer materials. Use caution when placing the unit on soft woods or
other materials that heat or heavy objects may damage. Some surface finishes
may be particularly sensitive to absorbing such marks, due to a variety of factors
beyond Harman Kardon control, including the nature of the finish, cleaning materials
used, normal heat and vibration caused by the use of the product, or other factors.
Your warranty will not cover this type of damage to furniture, so exercise caution
in choosing an installation location for the component and in performing normal
maintenance practices.
s Your new Harman Kardon Blu-ray Disc™ receiver requires a broadband Internet
connection for streaming capability and BD-Live™ interactivity.
Cleaning
If you have any questions about this product, its installation or its operation, please
contact your retailer or custom installer, or visit our Web site at www.harmankardon.com.
When the receiver gets dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft, dry cloth. If necessary, and only
after unplugging the AC power cord, wipe it with a soft cloth dampened with mild soapy
water, then a fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe it dry immediately with a dry cloth. NEVER
use benzene, aerosol cleaners, thinner, alcohol or any other volatile cleaning agent. Do
not use abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the finish of metal parts. Avoid spraying
insecticide near the unit.
Verify Line Voltage Before Using
Moving the Receiver
Your BDS receiver has been designed for use with 100 – 240-volt, 50Hz/60Hz AC current
and includes a detachable IEC power cable intended for use in the region where the
receiver is sold.
Before moving the receiver, disconnect any interconnection cords to other components,
and disconnect the unit from its AC outlet.
Connection to a line voltage other than that for which the unit 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 dealer before plugging the unit into a wall outlet.
Supplied Accessories
To get the maximum enjoyment from your new BDS receiver we urge you to read this
manual thoroughly and refer back to it as you become more familiar with your new
receiver’s features and their operation.
If any of these items are missing, please contact Harman Kardon Customer Service via
www.harmankardon.com.
Unpacking
The carton and shipping materials used to protect your new receiver during shipment
were specially designed to cushion it from shock and vibration. We suggest that you
save the carton and packing materials for use in shipping if you move or if the unit ever
needs repair.
Power Cord
(varies with region)
To minimize the size of the carton in storage, you may wish to flatten it. You can do it by
carefully slitting the tape seams on the carton’s bottom and collapsing it. You can store
cardboard inserts in the same manner. Packing materials that cannot be collapsed should
be saved along with the carton in a plastic bag.
If you do not wish to save the packaging materials, please note that the carton and
other sections of the shipping-protection materials are recyclable. Please respect the
environment and discard those materials at a local recycling center.
FM Antenna
Remove the protective plastic film from the front-panel lens. Leaving the film in place will
affect the performance of your remote control.
Installation Location
s To ensure proper operation and to avoid the potential for safety hazards, place the
unit on a firm and level surface. When placing the unit on a shelf, be certain that the
shelf and any mounting hardware can support the weight of the product.
s Provide proper space both above and below the unit for ventilation. If this product will
be installed in a cabinet or other enclosed area, make certain that there is sufficient
air movement within the area. Under some circumstances, a fan may be required.
s Do not place the unit directly on a carpeted surface.
s Avoid installation in extremely hot or cold locations or in an area that is exposed to
direct sunlight or heating equipment.
s Avoid moist or humid locations.
s Do not obstruct the fan vents on the rear panel or the ventilation slots on the top and
sides of the unit or place objects directly over or next to them.
s Do not place the receiver directly on top of a product that generates excessive heat.

NOTE: See the Connections section, on page 10, for detailed information about
making connections.
Main Power switch: This mechanical switch turns the BDS receiver’s power supply
on or off. After you have made and verified all connections (see the Connections
section, on page 10), set this switch to the “On” position. During normal use you will
usually leave this switch set to On; it cannot be turned on or off using the remote
control. To conserve energy when you’re not going to be using the receiver for an
extended period of time, set this switch to “Off.”
Fan vents: These vents are used by the receiver’s fan to cool the unit. Maintain a
clearance of at least three inches (75mm) from the nearest surface to avoid overheating
the unit.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Never block the fan vents. Doing so could allow the BDS receiver
to overheat to dangerous levels.
Speaker connectors: Use the speaker wires supplied with the speakers to connect
the satellite and center speakers to the proper terminals.
s BDS 575 and BDS 577 receivers (shown) have connections for five speakers: front
left, front right, surround left, surround right and center.
s BDS 275 and BDS 277 receivers (not shown) have connections for two speakers:
front left and front right.
See Connections, on page 10, for more information.
Subwoofer Trigger connector: This connector provides 12V DC whenever the receiver

s The power requirement for the BDS receiver is 100V – 240V AC, 50/60Hz, 120W
(BDS 575/BDS 577) or 90W (BDS 275/BDS 277). Connecting to a power source other
than the ones listed may damage the receiver or cause abnormal operation.
s Before connecting the AC power cord to a wall outlet, confirm that you have correctly
made all of the speaker connections, video connections and audio-component
connections.
Connect the female end of the receiver’s detachable power cord to the receiver’s AC
Power connector. Plug the other end into a working, unswitched AC outlet.
Using the Remote
When using the remote, remember to aim it toward the receiver’s front panel. Make
sure that no objects, such as furniture, block the remote’s view of the receiver. Bright
lights, fluorescent lights, and plasma-video displays may interfere with the function of
the remote.
s The remote has a range of about 20 feet (6.1m), depending on the lighting conditions.
s You can use the remote at an angle of up to 30° to either side of the BDS receiver.
If the remote seems to operate intermittently, or if pressing a button on the remote does
not cause one of the Input buttons to light up, make sure that the batteries are inserted
correctly. If the remote still operates intermittently, replace all three batteries with new
ones.
Programming the Remote Control
Power Cord
(supplied)
Set the receiver’s Main Power switch to the “On” position. The receiver’s On/Standby
indicator will turn amber, indicating that the receiver is in the Standby mode.
In addition to controlling the BDS receiver, you can program the unit’s remote to control
one auxiliary (Aux) component. The remote is also capable of learning codes directly from
other remotes. This ability allows you to combine learned commands with programmed
codes, making the remote capable of controlling more than one Aux component. Typical
Aux components would be your TV, a satellite receiver or a cable receiver. The remote
will control the Aux component(s) only when the Aux source button has been pressed.
Pressing any other source button will put the remote back into the normal BDS receiver
control mode.
To Program the Remote to Control an Aux Component:
1. Look up the set-up codes for the component type (for example, TV or cable box)
and its brand in the Aux Component Remote-Control Code List, starting on page 29.
2. Turn on your auxiliary component.
3. Press and hold the Aux button for three seconds, and then release it.
NOTE: The remote will remain in the programming mode for 20 seconds; you must
perform Step 4 within that time period.

4. Aim the remote towards the component you just turned on and enter a set-up code
number from Step 1, above. Use the Program (Red) button for the first digit; the
Bookmark (Green) button for the second digital; the Thumbnail (Yellow) button for the
third digit; and the Zoom (Blue) button for the last digit. If the code to be entered is
“0” you do not need to press the corresponding button; for numbers “1” and above,
press the button that number of times. When you have entered all four digits, press
the OK button – the component should now turn off.
5. If the remote control turns the component off in Step 4, press the Aux button once
again to store the set-up code number. To confirm that the code has been saved, the
LED indicator will blink three times.

Notes on Setting Speaker Volumes in 5.1-Channel Systems:
While setting your system’s individual speaker volume levels is ultimately up to your
personal taste, here are some ideas you may find helpful:
s For films and video-music programs, your overall goal should be to create an
enveloping, realistic sound field that draws you into the film or music program
without drawing your attention away from the action on the screen.
s For multichannel music recordings, some music producers will create a sound field
that places the musicians all around you; others will create a sound field that places
the musicians in front of you, with more subtle ambience in the surround speakers
(as you would experience in a concert hall).
s In most 5.1-channel films, the surround channels are not intended to be as loud or
as active as the front channels. Adjusting the surround speakers so they are always
as loud as the front channels could make dialogue difficult to understand and will
make some sound effects sound unrealistically loud.
Notes on Setting Subwoofer Volume:
s Sometimes the ideal subwoofer volume setting for music is too loud for films, while
the ideal setting for films is too quiet for music. When setting the subwoofer volume,
listen to both music and films with strong bass content and find a “middle ground”
volume level that works for both.
s If your subwoofer always seems too loud or too quiet, you may want to place it in
a different location. Placing the subwoofer in a corner will always tend to increase
its bass output, while placing it away from any walls or corners will always tend to
lessen its bass output.
IMPORTANT: Do not turn the receiver’s volume up to or past the point where the
audio from the speakers becomes distorted. Doing so can damage the speakers.
To switch between the available surround-sound modes for the program currently
playing, press the Surround button. Each press of the Surround button will change to the
next available mode in line. A pop-up display will appear on the TV, showing the modes
as you cycle through them.
Surround-Sound Modes
Listening Through Headphones
Your BDS receiver can decode and play audio programs in these native audio formats:
s Dolby Digital
s Dolby Digital Plus
s Dolby TrueHD
s DTS Digital
s PCM
s MP3: 32kbps – 320kbps bitrates, including variable bitrate encoding
Your BDS receiver’s headphone connection accepts a standard 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo
headphone plug. When you insert the headphone plug into the connector, the receiver’s
speaker outputs will mute; the HDMI audio output will not mute.
When headphones are connected to the receiver’s Headphone jack, pressing the remote’s
Surround button cycles between these two modes:
s HARMAN headphone, which virtualizes a multichannel surround soundtrack down to
two channels. This mode retains the soundtrack’s original directional cues, allowing
you to enjoy an enveloping surround-sound experience on any ordinary pair of stereo
headphones.
s Headphone Bypass, which downmixes surround-sound programs into normal
stereo. This mode does not retain any multichannel directional cues that may be in
the original surround-sound program.

Supported Media Codecs
Disc Handling Precautions
The BDS receiver can play media recorded in the following audio/video codecs:
s MPEG 2
s H.264
s VC-1
s MP3 (from CD-R/RW, DVD+R/+RW, BD-R/RE and USB)
s JPEG (from CD-R/RW, DVD+R/+RW, BD-R/RE and USB)
s DivX 3.x/4.x/5.x (from CD-R/RW, DVD+R/+RW and USB)
s To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the surface.
s Do not stick paper or tape on the disc. If there is glue (or a similar substance) on the
disc, remove the substance completely before using the disc.
s Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts or
leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight, as there can be a considerable rise in
temperature inside the car.
s After playing, store the disc in its case.
s Do not write on the label side with a ball-point pen or other sharp writing utensils.
s Be careful not to drop or bend the disc.
Disc Cleaning Precautions
s Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.
s Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners or
anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.
Regional Coding
Your BDS receiver is designed to be compatible with region management information
that is encoded on most Blu-ray Disc recordings and DVD recordings. If there is a region
code on a disc other than the one your BDS receiver is designed for, it will not play in
your BDS receiver.
See the sidebar box on page 2 for complete information about your receiver’s region
coding.
Copyright
Audio-visual material may consist of copyrighted works that must not be recorded
without the permission of the owner of the copyright. Please refer to relevant laws
covering copyright protection.
Copy Protection
Your BDS receiver is in compliance with HDCP (High-Definition Copy Protection), and a
video display connected via the HDMI output must also be HDCP-compliant.
The BDS receiver supports Rovi copy protection. On Blu-ray Disc recordings and DVD
discs that include a copy-protection code, if the contents of the disc are copied using a
VCR, the copy-protection code prevents the videotape copy from playing normally.
Supported Disc Formats
The BDS receiver can play the following types of discs (5"/12cm, and 3"/8cm size):
s BD-Video (single-layer or double-layer)
s DVD-Video
s DVD+R/+RW
s DVD-R/-RW
s CDDA (CD digital audio)
s CD-R/RW
NOTE: The compatibility and performance of dual-layer discs is not guaranteed.
22
NOTE: Due to differences in the formats of certain discs, some discs may include a mix
of features, some of which are not compatible with the disc player. Similarly, although
Blu-ray Disc recordings and DVDs are capable of a wide range of features, not every
disc includes every capability of its system. For example, although the BDS receiver is
compatible with multi-angle discs, the multi-angle feature is possible only when the disc
is specially encoded for multiple-angle play. To make certain that a specific feature or
soundtrack option is available, please check the options noted on the disc jacket.
The playback capability of recordable discs may vary due to variations in the quality of
the disc and the recorder used to create the disc.
Loading and Playing a Disc
Hold the disc horizontally when loading it, and insert it gently into the Disc slot. The disc
loading mechanism will take the disc and slide it into the unit.
s Do not load more than one disc into the Disc slot.
s Do not load the disc upside down.
After loading a disc into the player, press the Play button to begin playback.
Use the Play, Pause, Stop, Prev/Step, Next/Step, Search Forward/Slow and Search
Reverse/Slow buttons to control disc playback. See Remote Control Functions, on page
8, for more information about the functions of these buttons.
Playback Features
Repeat: When you are playing a Blu-ray Disc recording or DVD, pressing the Repeat button
cycles through the following repeat modes: Chapter, Title, All, Off. When you are playing a
CD, this button cycles through the following repeat modes: Track, All, Off.
A-B Repeat: When playing a Blu-ray Disc recording, or DVD, holding the Repeat button for
more than three seconds places the player into the A-B repeat mode. The next short press
of the Repeat button sets the “A” repeat point; the second short press sets the “B” repeat
point and begins repeating the section of the disc between the two points. Pressing the
Back button while the player is in the A-B repeat mode takes the player out of that mode.
Note: This feature is disc-dependent. Not all Blu-ray Disc recordings support A-B repeat.
Options: Pressing the Options button displays any available options for the currentlyplaying disc. Blu-ray Disc options include title, chapter, time display, audio options, angle
options, subtitle options, Find, Adjust Lip Sync, Advance and Replay. DVD options include
title, chapter, time display, playback modes, audio options, angle options, Find, Adjust
Lip Sync, Advance and Replay. Audio CD options include track selection, time display,
playback modes, bitrate, instant search and instant replay.
Find option: Selecting the Find option during disc playback activates the search function,
allowing you to jump to a specific location on the disc. You can find a location by title,
chapter or time. See Top Menu Button (on page 23) for more information. NOTE: Not all
discs allow searching by title. On these discs, use the disc menu to change titles.
Lip Sync option: This option lets you resynchronize the audio and video signals from a
Blu-ray Disc recording or DVD to eliminate a “lip sync” problem. Lip-sync issues can
occur when the video portion of a signal undergoes additional processing in the video
display. Use the Left/Right Cursor buttons to delay the audio by up to 250ms until it is
synchronized with the video. Press the Back button when you’re finished. NOTE: This
setting will be available only when a Blu-ray Disc or DVD has been inserted into the BDS

and Using Playlists
Use the remote’s Transport Control buttons to control music-file playback. See Remote
Control Functions, on page 8, for more information about the functions of these buttons.

the Repeat and Options functions are slightly different from when they are playing
Blu-ray Disc recordings, DVDs and music CDs:
Repeat button: Pressing this button cycles through the following repeat modes:
1 (song), All (folder), Off. The active repeat mode is indicated in the screen’s top bar.
Options button: Pressing this button displays any available options for the song currently
playing:
s File: Select a song to play.
s Time: Display the track’s elapsed time or the track’s time remaining.
s Play Mode: Plays songs in their normal order, in random order (until you press the
Stop button) or in shuffle order (plays each song in the folder one time in random
order, then returns to the directory).
s Bitrate: Shows the bitrate of the song currently playing.
s Advance: Performs a rapid, audible search forward through the song.
s Replay: Each press of the OK button jumps back ten seconds during play.
s Find: Lets you advance to a precise time in the track.
While playing music files from a USB device or data CD, you can also view photos that are
on the same media. Press the Home button while the music file is playing, navigate to a
folder containing photo files, and select a photo file to begin a slide show.
Using Playlists
Because USB devices and CD data discs can contain large numbers of playable files,
you can create a playlist for each that will make it easier for you to access selected files.
To Create a Playlist:
NOTE: The procedure is the same for a CD data disc playlist and a USB playlist.
1. Press the Home button. The Home menu will appear.
2. Select CD data disc or USB. The Photo, Music and Video folders will appear.
3. Select the type of file you want to create the playlist for. You can create a playlist for
each type of file.
4. As you search through the directory structure, when you see a file you want to
include in the playlist for that file type, highlight it and press the Options button. The
playlist options box will appear.
5. To add the item to the playlist, select “Add to playlist.”
6. Repeat Steps 4 – 5 for all items you want to add to the playlist.
To create a playlist for a different file type, repeat Steps 1 – 6, but in Step 3, select a
different file type.
To Play a Playlist:
1. Press the Home button. The Home menu will appear.
2. Select Playlist. The Photo/Music/Video screen will appear.
3. Select the file type of the playlist you want to play. The playlist will open.
4. Select the first item in the playlist and press the Play button. The playlist will play.
To repeat the playlist, press the Repeat button. You can repeat one item (“1”) or the entire
playlist (“All”).
