Installation and Connections
System Installation After unpacking the unit, 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. These steps need to be done only when the receiver is first installed, or when a change is made to the input source equipment. Audio Equipment Connections We recommend that you use high-quality interconnect cables when making connections to source equipment and recorders to preserve the quality of the signals. When making connections to audio source equipment or speakers it is always a good practice to unplug the unit from the AC wall outlet. This prevents any possibility of accidentally sending audio or transient signals to the speakers that may damage them. 1. Connect the analog output of a CD player to the CD inputs. NOTE: When the CD player has both fixed and variable audio outputs it is best to use the fixed output unless you find that the input to the receiver is so low that the sound is noisy, or high that the signal is distorted. 2. Connect the Play/Out jacks of a cassette deck, MD or other audio recorder to the Tape Monitor In jacks a. Connect the Record/In jacks on the recorder to the Tape Monitor Out jacks b on the AVR35.

System Setup Once the speakers have been placed in the room and connected, the final step in the setup process is to enter the settings that configure the AVR35s bass management system for the type of speakers used in your system, the calibration of the output levels and the delay times used by the surround sound processor. Before proceeding further, this is a good time to review the installation section of the manual to make certain that all connections are properly made. You are now ready to power up the AVR35 to begin these final adjustments. 1. Plug the Power Cable into an unswitched AC outlet. 2. Press the Main Power Switch 1 in so that it latches in with the OFF wording on the top of the switch inside the front panel. Note that the Power Indicator 3 will turn amber, indicating that the unit is in the Standby mode. 3. Install the three supplied AAA batteries in the remote as shown. Be certain to observe the (+) and () polarity indicators shown in the bottom of the battery compartment.
4. Turn the AVR35 on either by pressing the System Power Control 3 on the front panel, or via the remote by first pressing the AVR Selector a, and then pressing the Power button d. The Power Indicator 3 will turn green to confirm that the unit is on, and the Information Display will also light up. Speaker Configuration The first few adjustments tell the AVR35 which type of speakers are in use. This is important as it adjusts the settings that determine which speakers receive lowfrequency (bass) information. For each of these settings use the LARGE setting if the speakers for a particular position are traditional full-range loudspeakers that are capable of reproducing sounds below 100Hz. Use the SMALL setting for smaller, frequency-limited satellite speakers that do not reproduce sounds below 100Hz. Note that when small speakers are used, a subwoofer is required to reproduce low-frequency sounds. Remember that the large and small descriptions do not refer to the actual physical size of the speakers, but 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 owners manual, or ask your dealer.
With the AVR35 turned on, follow these steps to configure the speakers: 1. Put the AVR35 in the Dolby Pro Logic mode by pressing the Dolby Pro Logic Selector on the front panel or by pressing the Surround Mode Selector g on the remote, followed by the / buttons h until PRO LOGIC appears in the Main Information Display S and the PRO LOGIC indicator F lights. 2. Press the Speaker button z on the remote or front panel. The words FRNT SPEAKER will appear in the Main Information Display S. 3. Press the Set button j. 4. Press the / buttons h on the remote or the Selector buttons on the front panel until either LARGE or SMALL appears to match the type of speakers you have at the left front and right front positions, as described by the definitions shown below. When SMALL is selected, lowfrequency sounds will be sent to the subwoofer output only. Note that if you choose this option, and there is no subwoofer connected, you will not hear any low-frequency sounds from the front channels.
a. When setting the delay time for the Dolby Digital surround mode, the optimal delay time is the resulting figure. For example, if the front speakers are ten feet away and the surround speakers are five feet away, the optimal delay time is figured as 105=5. Thus, in this example, the delay should be set at five milliseconds. b. When setting the delay time for the Pro Logic mode, take the result of the subtraction and add 15 to obtain the optimal delay time. For example, if the front speakers are ten feet away and the surround speakers are five feet away, the optimal delay time is figured as 105+15=20. Thus, in this example, the delay should be set at twenty milliseconds. The Dolby Digital mode also provides a separate setting for the center-channeldelay mode, since the discrete nature of Dolby Digital signals makes the location of the center-channel speaker more critical. To calculate the delay for the center channel, measure the distance from the preferred listening position in the center of the room to both the centerchannel speaker and either the left or right speaker. NOTE: The Theater, Hall 1 and Hall 2 modes use a fixed, non-adjustable delay time.
If the distances are equal no further adjustment is required and the center delay should be set to zero. If the distance to the front speakers is greater than the distance to the center speaker you may wish to reposition the speakers by moving the front left/right speakers closer to the listening position or the center speaker further away from the listening position. If repositioning of the speakers is not possible, adjust the center delay time so that you add one millisecond of centerchannel delay for each foot that the distance to the center speaker lags behind the front speakers. For example, if the front left/right speakers are each 10 feet from the listening position and the center-channel speaker is 8 feet away, the delay is figured as 108=2, suggesting an optimal center delay of 2 milliseconds. To set the delay times, follow these steps: 1. Put the AVR35 in the Dolby Pro Logic mode by pressing the Dolby Pro Logic Selector on the front panel, or by pressing the Surround Mode Selector g on the remote, followed by the / buttons h until PRO LOGIC appears in the Main Information Display S and the PRO LOGIC indicator F lights. 2. Press the Delay button x on the remote or front panel. The words S DELAY TIME will appear in the Main Information Display S.
unit off using the front panel Main Power Switch 1. Note that all preset memories are lost if the unit is left turned off with the Main Power Switch 1 for more than two weeks.
For private listening, plug the 1/4" stereo phone plug from a pair of stereo headphones into the front panel Headphone jack 4. When a Video Input source is selected the video signal for that input will be routed to the TV Monitor Video Output jack and will be viewable on a TV monitor connected to the AVR35. Make certain that your TV is set to the proper input to view the signal. To program the AVR35 for automatic turn off, press the Sleep button e $. Each press of the button will increase the time before shut down in the following sequence:
To select a source at any time, press any of the Source Selector buttons on the remote l or front panel 9 ) ! @ #. The front panel Video 3 Inputs 8 may be used to connect a device such as a video game or camcorder to your home entertainment system on a temporary basis. When an audio source is selected the last video input used remains routed to the Video Outputs 1 and TV Monitor Output. This permits simultaneous viewing and listening to different sources. During a listening session you may wish to adjust the Bass 5 and Treble 6 controls to suit your listening tastes. Adjust the volume to a comfortable level using the front panel Volume Control or remote Volume Up/Down buttons. To temporarily silence all speaker outputs press the Mute button `. This will cut the output to all speakers, but it will not effect any recording or dubbing that may be in progress. When the system is muted the MUTE indicator A will light in the Information Display. Press the Mute button ` again to return to normal operation.
The sleep time will be displayed in the Information Display and it will count down until the time has elapsed. When the programmed time has elapsed the unit will automatically turn off. Note that the front panel display will dim to one half brightness when the Sleep function is programmed. To cancel the Sleep function, press the Sleep button e $ until the information display returns to normal brightness and the Sleep indicator numbers disappear.
Surround Mode Selection
This message indicates that the AC-3 system is decoding a traditional two-channel stereo signal and that no center, surround or LFE signals are present.
This is a monaural signal that plays the same information in both the left front and right front speakers. There is no sound sent to the center or surround speakers.
This is a monaural signal that plays through the center channel speaker only. There is no sound at the front left/right or surround speakers.
Night Mode A special feature of Dolby Digital is the Night mode, which enables AC-3 input sources to be played back with their full range while reducing the minimum peak level by 1/4 to 1/3. This prevents abruptly loud transitions from causing disturbances without reducing the impact of the digital source. The Night mode is available only when AC-3 signals with special data are being played.
When a PCM source is playing, the PCM indicator I will light, and the Main Information Display will show the input source and the digital type. During PCM playback you may select any surround mode except Dolby Digital.
The AVR35s tuner is capable of tuning AM, FM and FM Stereo broadcast stations. Stations may be tuned manually, or they may be stored as favorite station presets and recalled from a 30-position memory. Station Selection 1. Press the AM/FM button # l to select the tuner as an input. 2. Press the AM/FM button # l again to switch between AM and FM so that the desired frequency band is selected. 3. Press the Tuner Mode button * r to select manual or automatic tuning. When the AUTO indicator O is illuminated in the Main Information Display the tuner will only stop at those stations that have a strong enough signal to be received with acceptable quality. When the MONO indicator Q is illuminated, the tuner is in a manual mode and will stop at each frequency increment in the selected band. 4. To select stations press the Tuning button % v. When the AUTO indicator O is illuminated each press will cause the tuner to search for the next highest or lowest frequency station that has an acceptable signal. When tuning FM stations in the Auto mode, the tuner will only select Stereo stations. To tune to the
next station, press the button again. If the MONO indicator Q is illuminated, tap the Tuning button % v to advance one frequency increment at a time, or press and hold it to locate a specific station. When the TUNED indicator R illuminates, the station is properly tuned and should be heard with clarity. 5. Stations may also be tuned directly by pressing the Direct button s, and then pressing the Numeric Keys n that correspond to the stations frequency. The desired station will automatically be tuned. NOTE: When the FM reception of a station is weak, audio quality will be increased by switching to Mono mode by pressing the Tuner Mode button * r until the STEREO indicator P goes out. Preset Tuning Up to 30 stations may be stored in the AVR35s memory for easy recall using the front panel controls or the remote. To enter a station to the memory, first tune the station using the steps outlined above. Then: 1. Press the Memory button q on the remote.

Press the Device Control Selector c again, and note that the red light will flash twice to confirm the entry before going dark. 6. 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
the volume, channel and transport controls, as appropriate. If all 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. IMPORTANT NOTE: The TAPE button may be programmed to control a DVD or LD player, instead of a tape deck, by using the codes shown on page 32. Similarly, the CBL/SAT button may be used to control a cable box, satellite receiver or web browser box, depending on the code you enter.
As shipped from the factory, the remote is fully programmed for all AVR35 functions, as well as those of most Harman Kardon CD changers, 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.
Auto Search Method
If the unit you wish to include in the AVR35s 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 as shown below. 1. Turn on the unit that you wish to include in the AVR35 remote. 2. Press the Device Control Selector c for the type of product to be entered (e.g., VCR, TV) and the Mute button ` at the same time. Hold both buttons until the red light under the button stays lit. Note that the next step must take place while the red light is on, and it must begin within 20 seconds after the light illuminates.
The Power button may be programmed to send out a sequence of up to eight commands when it is pushed. This enables you to turn on a number of products, and to have a program source turn to a favorite channel or any other command. To program a macro into the Power button, follow these steps: 1. Press either the AVR button b or the SAT/CBL Device Selector button c and the Mute button ` at the same time until the red light under the Device Control Selector turns on. 2. Press the Power button d and note that the Device Control Selector will blink once. 3. Enter up to eight macro steps, by pressing the Device Control button and then the function button for each step you wish to enter. To enter the Power On/Off command during macro programming, press the Mute button `. DO NOT press the actual Power Button. 4. When the eight steps have been entered, press the Channel / buttons f to enter the commands. The red light under the Device Control Selector will blink twice and then turn off.
Example: To program your TV, Cable Box and the AVR35 to turn on when the Power button is pressed, first press-and-hold the AVR b and Mute buttons ` until the red light comes on under the AVR button. Next, press the Mute button ` to enter the Power command for the AVR. Press the TV Device Control Selector c to select the TV mode, and then press the Mute button ` again, to select TV Power. Finally, press the CBL

conjunction with any of the eight devices controlled by the remote. For example, since the AVR35 will likely be used as the sound system for TV viewing, you may wish to have the AVRs volume activated although the remote is set to run the TV. Either the AVR or TV volume control may be associated with any of the remotes devices. To program the remote for Volume Punch-Through, follow these steps: 1. Press the Device Control Selector c for the unit you wish to have associated with the volume control and the Mute button ` at the same time until the red light illuminates under the Device Control Selector. 2. Press the Volume Up button.
Re-Assigning Device Control Selectors
Although each of the seven Device Control Selectors c is normally assigned to the category of product shown on the remote, it is possible to re-assign one of these buttons to operate a second device of another type. For example, if you have two VCRs, but no satellite receiver, you may program the SAT button to operate a second VCR. Before following the normal programming steps for either Three-Digit entry or Auto Search code entry, you must first re-assign the button with the following steps: 1. Press the Device Control Selector c you wish to re-assign and the Mute button ` at the same time until the red light illuminates under the Device Control Selector. 2. Press the Device Control Selector c for the function you wish to program into the re-assigned button. 3. Enter the three-digit code for the specific model you wish the re-assigned button to operate. 4. Press the same Device Control Selector pressed in Step 1 again to store the selection. Example: To use the SAT button to operate a second VCR, first press the
SAT Device Control Selector c, and the Mute button ` at
to select Cable Power. Press the Channel / buttons f to enter the commands. After following these steps, each time you press the Power button d, the remote will send the Power On/Off command each time the Power button is pressed. To remove a macro program, follow steps 1, 2 and 4 above, but do not follow step three. For example, to erase the macro just entered, press the Device Control Selector c and the Mute button ` at the same time until the red light under the Device Control Selector turns on. Press the Power button d, and then press the Channel / buttons f. The red light under the Device Control Selector will blink twice to confirm the data entry and then turn off. NOTE: Only the AVR button b and the SAT/CBL button c may be programmed for macros.
3. Press either the AVR b or the TV Device Control Selector c, depending on which systems volume control you wish to have attached for the punch-through mode. Note that the red light under the Device Control Selector will blink twice and then go out to confirm the data entry. Example: To have the AVRs volume control be activated even though the remote is set to control the TV, first press the TV Device Control Selector c and the Mute button ` at the same time. Next, press the Volume Up button followed by the AVR Device Control Selector b. NOTE: Should you wish to return the remote to the original configuration after entering a Volume Punch-Through, you will need to repeat the steps shown above. However, press the same Device Control Selector in steps one and three.
The AVR35s remote may be programmed to operate the Volume Controls from either the TV or the AVR to operate in
the same time until the red light glows under the SAT button. Press the VCR button, followed by the three-digit code for the specific model you wish to control. Finally, press the SAT button again.

Figure 8 Auxiliary Audio Input
Although some sources produce an audio signal only (e.g., CD player, tape deck), many sources output both audio and video signals (e.g., DVD player, cable television box, HDTV tuner, satellite box, VCR, DVR). In addition to the audio connection, make one type of video connection for each of these sources (but only one at a time for any source).
Analog connections require two cables, one for the left channel (white) and one for the right channel (red). These two cables are often attached to each other for most of their length. See Figure 6. Most sources that have digital audio jacks also have analog audio jacks, although some older types of sources, such as tape decks, have only analog jacks. For sources that are capable of both digital and analog audio, you may wish to make both connections. If you wish to record materials from DVDs or other copy-protected sources, you may only be able to do so using analog connections. Remember to comply with all copyright laws if you choose to make a copy for your own personal use.
Analog audio cable (RCA)
Figure 6 Analog Audio
The AVR 154 is equipped with three HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) inputs, and one output. HDMI is capable of carrying digital audio and video information using a single cable, thus delivering the highest possible quality picture and sound. The AVR 154 is capable of switching the HDMI data, passing the incoming audio and video data (including 1080i and 1080p video), directly to your HDMI-capable video display, without processing any of the data. Although the AVR 154 is compatible with virtually any HDMIcapable source device and video display, a separate audio connection is required for each source, since the AVR 154 doesnt have access to the audio data in the HDMI stream.
Before you begin to connect cables, it is important to place your speakers in their correct locations in the room. Optimally, the speakers should be placed in a circle with the listening position at its center. The distance from the listening position to the video display forms the radius of the circle. See Figure 15. The speakers should be angled so that they directly face the listening position. The center speaker is placed either on top of, below or mounted on the wall above or below the video display screen. The front left and right speakers are placed along the circle, about 30 degrees from the center speaker and angled toward the listener. It is best to place the front left/right and center speakers as close to the same height as possible, preferably at about the same height as the listeners ears. In any event the center speaker should be no more than two feet above or below the left/right speakers. The side surround speakers should be placed 110 degrees from the center speaker, that is, slightly behind and angled toward the listener. If this isnt feasible, place them behind the listener, with each surround speaker facing the opposite-side front speaker. The surround speakers may be placed a little higher than the listeners ears. The subwoofers location is less critical, since low-frequency sounds are omnidirectional. Placing the subwoofer close to a wall or in a corner will reinforce the low frequencies, and may create a boomy sound. You may wish to experiment over time by placing the subwoofer where the listener normally sits and then walking around the room until the low frequencies sound best. Place the subwoofer in that spot. NOTE: Your receiver will sound its best when the same model loudspeaker is used for all positions (other than the subwoofer). If that isnt possible, try to use speakers made by the same manufacturer.

You are now ready to connect your various components to your receiver. Before beginning, turn off all components, including the AVR 154, and unplug their power cords. Dont plug any of the power cords back in until you have finished making all of your connections. Remember that your receiver generates heat while it is on. Select a location that leaves several inches of space on all sides of the receiver. Avoid completely enclosing the receiver inside an unventilated cabinet. It is preferable to place components on separate shelves rather than stacking them directly on top of the receiver. Some surface finishes are delicate. Try to select a location with a sturdy surface finish.
Figure 16 Speaker Connections
Step Two Connect the Subwoofer
Connect the Subwoofer Output on the AVR 154 to the line-level input on your subwoofer. See Figure 17. Consult the manufacturers guide for the subwoofer for additional information.
Figure 17 Subwoofer Connection
Choose one digital audio connection: Optical or Coaxial Optional, or where digital audio is not available: Analog audio for making recordings for personal use or as a backup. Analog audio is required for older analog sources that dont have digital audio outputs, such as cassette decks. 20
(choose only one, and make sure that type is available on your TV) HDMI Component video S-video Composite video
NOTES: Digital audio, HDMI and component video connections are not dedicated to any source input. When any of these physical connections are used, they must be assigned to the desired source input as described in the Initial Setup section. Its possible for a source input to use none of the connectors named for it; e.g., the DVD source may use the Component Video 1 inputs for video and the Coaxial Digital Audio Input 1 for audio, both of which require assignment. If the video display is equipped with an HDMI or DVI digital video input, make sure it is also HDCP-compliant (HighBandwith Digital Content Protection) to display copy-protected materials. If the source or video display has a DVI input, use an HDMIto-DVI adapter (not included), and make separate audio connections. Although the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs are designated as a separate source input, the 6CH button on the remote may not be programmed to operate a source device. The 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs are used with an analog video input (component video, S-video or composite video, but not HDMI) that may also be assigned to another source input, such as DVD. Program the corresponding Input Selector on the remote, e.g., DVD, with the devices product code. To enjoy audio from the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs, first select the source for the video input (DVD, in this example), and then switch the source to the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs. The AVR 154 will use the last-selected analog video input while obtaining audio from the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs.
Figure 19 Connecting an HDMI-Equipped Disc Player
If the player is capable of playing multichannel discs, including DVDAudio, SACD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc, make the following additional connections (see Figure 20): Connect the DVD players component video output to the Component Video 1 Input on the AVR. Connect the DVD players 6-channel analog audio outputs to the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs on the AVR.

Connect the set-tops component video output to the Component Video 2 Input on the AVR (if available).
Figure 25 Connecting a Video Recorder
NOTE: If S-video or composite video is the only video connection, you may also use any available digital audio connection.
Figure 27 Connecting a Component-Video-Equipped Set-Top Box
Composite/S-Video: If the best video connection common to both the set-top box and the TV is either S-video or composite video, follow these steps (see Figure 28):
Connect the set-tops S-video or composite video output (use one connection only) to the corresponding Video 2 Input on the AVR. Connect the set-tops optical digital audio output to the Optical 1 Input on the AVR (if available). For fully analog set-top boxes, connect the boxs analog audio outputs to the AVRs Video 2 Audio Inputs.
To make analog audio recordings, connect the recorders left and right analog audio outputs to the Tape Inputs on the AVR, and the recorders analog audio inputs to the AVRs Tape Outputs. No video connection is required, although the AVR will display the lastselected analog video source when the Tape source is selected. See Figure 30.
Figure 30 Connecting an Audio Recorder
Connect a Portable Audio Player
For audio-only playback from a portable CD player, cassette deck, MP3 player or other device equipped with a 1/8-inch headphone jack, use a stereo 1/8-inch mini-plug interconnect (not included) to connect the devices headphone jack to the AUX Input on the AVR. Use the devices own controls to operate it. See Figure 31.
Figure 28 Connecting a Set-Top Box
Connect a CD Player or Any Audio-Only Device
If the CD player or other component has a digital audio output, connect it to any available digital audio input on the AVR. If not, connect the CD players left and right analog audio outputs to the CD Audio Inputs. No video connection is required, but the AVR will display the last-selected analog video source when the CD source is selected. See Figure 29.
Figure 31 Connecting a Portable Audio Player
Alternatively, use an interconnect with a stereo 1/8-inch mini-plug at one end and two RCA plugs at the other end to connect the player to the Video 3 Audio Inputs on the AVRs front panel (see Figure 32).
Connecting a Game Console, Camera or Other Device
Figure 29 Connecting a CD Player
NOTE: A turntable may only be connected to the AVR if it is equipped with an internal phono preamp, or if you supply an external phono preamp, available at some audio specialty stores or through the Harman Kardon Parts Dept. You may then connect it to any set of analog audio inputs.
If a device will only be connected temporarily, you may use the Video 3 Inputs on the front panel. When not in use, place the supplied covers over the Video 3 jacks for a cleaner appearance by snapping the covers in place. To remove the covers, gently press on the left side of each cover so that it pivots out.
Connect a Tape Deck or Any Audio-Only Recorder
If the recorder has digital audio inputs and outputs, connect either its coaxial or optical digital audio output (not both) to the corresponding available input on the AVR, and connect the AVRs Coaxial Digital Audio Output to the recorders coaxial digital audio input.
Video Components: Install video components, e.g., game consoles and camcorders, as follows (see Figure 32):
Connect the components S-video or composite video output (use only one connection) to the corresponding Video 3 Input on the AVR. Connect the components optical or coaxial digital audio output to either the Optical 3 or Coaxial 3 Input on the front panel (if available). For fully analog devices, connect the devices analog audio outputs to the AVRs Video 3 Audio Inputs.
Figure 34 Component Video Monitor Outputs Figure 32 Connecting a Device to the Front-Panel Inputs
Audio Components: Connect audio-only devices, such as CD players, to either the Coaxial 3 or Optical 3 Digital Audio Inputs, or the Video 3 Analog Audio Inputs (see Figure 32). If you obtain your broadcast programming from the TV, connect its audio outputs to the front-panel inputs and program the AVR remote to operate the TV, as described in Step Eight.
NOTE: If your video devices are equipped with HDMI or component video outputs, you may connect them to any available audio and video input on the AVR.
Figure 38 Power Switches
2. There are several ways in which the AVR 154 may be turned on from Standby mode. a) Press the Standby/On Switch on the front panel. See Figure 38. b) Press the Source Select Button on the front panel. See Figure 39.
Figure 39 Source Select Button
c) Using the remote, press any one of these buttons: AVR, DVD, CD, TAPE, AUX, HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, VID1, VID2, VID3, AM/FM or 6CH. See page 13. NOTE: Any time you press one of the Input Selectors, the remote will switch to the corresponding device mode and will only operate that device. To control the receiver, press the AVR Button to return the remote to AVR mode.
Before you begin enjoying your new receiver, a few adjustments should be made to configure the AVR 154 to match your actual system. Make sure that you have connected a video display to either the S-video or composite video monitor output on the receiver. When you turn on your display and the AVR, you should see a blue screen. A message may appear briefly at the bottom of the screen. This message is part of the on-screen display system, and is referred to as the semi-OSD. The semi-OSD is activated any time you send a command to the AVR, and any time the AVR detects a change in the incoming signal. Semi-OSD messages are overlaid on top of any video signal, so that you may continue to watch your program while making adjustments to the AVR. Although its possible to configure the AVR using only the remote and the semi-OSD messages, we recommend that you use the full-screen menu system, known as the full-OSD.
Figure 41 Master Menu Screen
If you are an experienced home theater user, you may prefer to use the menus in this order: 1. System Setup (described in Advanced Functions section) 2. Manual Setup (described here and in Advanced Functions) 3. Input Setup (described in this section) 4. Surround Select (see Advanced Functions section) We recommend that most users follow the instructions in this INITIAL SETUP section to configure a basic home theater system. You may return to these menus at any time to make additional adjustments. Record your configuration settings in the appropriate places in Tables A2 through A8 in the Appendix, in case you need to reenter them after a system reset, or if the AVRs Master Power Switch is turned off or the unit is unplugged for more than four weeks. This section requires that you complete all of the steps in the Installation section that apply to your receiver. You should have connected all of your loudspeakers and a video display, as well as your source devices. You should be able to turn on the receiver and view a blue screen on your video display. If necessary, reread the Installation Section before continuing.
Using the On-Screen Menu System
The full-OSD system is accessed by pressing the OSD Button on the remote. See Figure 40. While the full-OSD system is in use, it isnt possible to see any video programming. In addition, an OSD ON message will appear on the front panel of the receiver to remind you to use a video display.
Figure 40 Navigation Buttons
Press the OSD Button to display the Master Menu. Use the / Buttons to point the cursor to different lines in the menu. Press the OK Button to select one of the submenus listed in the Master Menu, or to return to a previous menu. Within the submenus, after positioning the cursor at a particular line item, use the / Buttons to change a setting. When the desired setting appears, use the / Buttons to navigate to another line item. Except for the TITLE setting in the INPUT SETUP menu, there is no need to press the OK Button after your desired setting appears. The Master Menu allows access to four submenus: Input Setup, Surround Select, Manual Setup and System Setup. See Figure 41. NOTE: Your menus appearance may vary, but the functions remain the same.
Step One Determine Speaker Size
The AVR 154 cant detect how many speakers youve connected to it; nor can it determine their capabilities. For this part of the system setup, consult the owners guide for each of your speakers. If you dont have the guide, obtain the speakers technical specifications from the manufacturers Web site, or by contacting the manufacturer directly. This information is needed to program the receivers bass management, which determines which speakers the receiver will use to play back the low-frequency (bass) portion of the source program. If the lowest notes are played by small satellite speakers, they wont sound their best, and they may damage the speaker by going beyond its capabilities. If the highest notes are played by the special-purpose subwoofer, they may not be heard at all.
With proper bass management, the AVR 154 divides the source signal at a crossover point. All information above the crossover point is played through the satellite speaker (front left/right, center or surround left/right), and all information below the crossover point is played through the subwoofer. This enables each loudspeaker in your system to perform at its best, delivering an enjoyable sound experience. Find the speakers frequency response, which is usually given as a range, e.g., 100Hz 20kHz (3dB). This specification tells you whether the speaker is able to play sounds that are very high- or low-pitched, represented by the high and low frequencies. We are concerned with the lowest frequency that each of your main speakers is capable of playing, which is 100Hz in this example. Use the Table A6 worksheet in the Appendix to note this number as the crossover for that speaker (not the same as the crossover frequency listed in the speakers specifications). The subwoofers frequency response includes only the lowest frequencies, since the subwoofer is only designed to play bass materials. A typical frequency response for a subwoofer is 25Hz 150Hz. In this case, the higher number is most important and should be noted in the worksheet.
Speaker Crossover Menu
On the Manual Setup menu, move the cursor to the SPEAKER X-OVER line and press the OK Button to display the Speaker Crossover menu. See Figure 45.
Figure 45 Speaker Crossover Menu Screen
Setting the Speaker Crossover menu correctly ensures that your speakers sound their best. Although you could skip this step the first time you use the receiver, we recommend that you take the few extra minutes to enter the correct crossover settings. Select from seven possible settings: 40Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, 150Hz or 200Hz. For each speaker group, select the number that matches or is just above the low end of your speakers frequency response, which you recorded in Step One Determine Speaker Size. Record the speaker crossover settings in Table A6 in the Appendix. The LFE line sets the frequency that determines what information is sent to the subwoofer. The subwoofer output combines low-frequency information for all channels. To make sure no information is lost, set the LFE line to the speaker group with the highest crossover frequency. Move the cursor to the LFE line, and use the / Buttons to make a selection. If all three speaker groups have the same setting, leave the LFE filter at its factory default of LEFT/RIGHT. Move the cursor to the BACK TO MANUAL SETUP line and press the OK Button to return to the Manual Setup menu. It is not possible to adjust the speaker crossover settings without using the on-screen menu system. Use the / Buttons to move the cursor to the FL (front left) line; then use the / Buttons to change the measurement as needed. Use the / Buttons to move to each speaker in turn CEN (center), FR (front right), SR (surround right), SL (surround left) and SUB (subwoofer). DELAY RESET: This line is used to reset all of the speaker delay settings to the factory default of 10 feet (3.0 meters) at once. Use the / Buttons to change the setting of OFF to ON. If you change any speakers setting, this line will automatically revert to OFF. A/V SYNC DELAY: This line allows you to compensate for a lip sync problem, in which a source device or the video display introduces a significant amount of video processing that causes the audio and video parts of the signal to lose synchronization. You may delay the audio for all channels by up to 180 milliseconds to compensate. NOTE: We recommend adjusting the A/V Sync Delay using the Delay Button on the remote, so as to view the picture while adjusting the audio delay. With the program playing, press the Delay Button, and the A/V SYNC DELAY message will appear on the front panel and in the semi-OSD display. Press the OK Button to display the current delay setting, and use the / Buttons to adjust the setting until the picture and sound are back in sync. Move the cursor to the BACK TO MANUAL SETUP line and press the OK Button to return to the Manual Setup menu, or press the OSD Button to exit the menu system. You may adjust the delay settings without using the on-screen menu system. Select a surround mode that uses all of the speakers in your system. Press the Delay Button on the remote to display the A/V SYNC DELAY message. If you wish to adjust A/V Sync Delay as described in the above note, press the OK Button to select it. Otherwise, use the / Buttons to scroll through the list of all loudspeakers in your system. Press the OK Button when the speaker you wish to adjust is displayed, and use the / Buttons again to change the setting. Press the OK Button to return to the previous display, or wait a few seconds for the AVR to return to normal operation on its own.
Dolby Virtual Speaker Reference When fewer than five main speakers are present, the Reference mode virtualizes the missing speakers with accurate localization. Select from two- or three-speaker mode, depending on how many physical speakers are in your system.
Dolby Virtual Speaker Wide
Wide mode may be used with two, three, four or five main speakers to widen the front soundstage by virtualizing the locations of the left and right speakers.
DTS Digital Surround
Using a different encoding/decoding method than Dolby Digital, it also provides up to five discrete main channels, plus an LFE channel.

Logic 7 Mode Group
Exclusive to Harman Kardon, Logic 7 enhances 2-channel recordings by deriving separate information for the surround back channels. This provides more accurate placement of sound, improves panning and expands the sound field, even when used with 5.1-channel systems. Logic 7 uses 96kHz processing. Three variants are available. Especially suited to 2-channel sources containing Dolby Surround or matrix encoding, Logic 7 Cinema mode increases center channel intelligibility. The AVR 154 is programmed at the factory to default to this mode for 2-channel signals. Logic 7 Music mode is well suited to conventional 2-channel music recordings. Logic 7 Enhance circulates low frequencies in the 40Hz 120Hz range to the main speakers for less localized bass performance than would be achieved solely with a subwoofer. Enhance mode is best used with music recordings. Hall 1 is a DSP (digital signal processor) mode that simulates a small concert hall. Simulates a medium-sized concert hall.
