7. Connect an FM antenna to the FM (75-ohm) Connection b. The FM antenna may be an external roof antenna, an inside powered or wire lead antenna or a connection from a cable TV system. If the antenna or connection uses 300-ohm twin-lead cable, you must use an optional 300-ohm-to-75-ohm adapter to make the connection. Note that you will not be able to view any video signal using the FM Antenna Connection b, even if you connect your cable television system to it. Speaker and Output Connections To assure 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 this 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 fine, 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 ten 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. Cables that are run inside walls should have the appropriate markings to indicate listing with UL, CSA or other appropriate testing agency standards. Questions about running cables inside walls should
System and Power Connections The HK 3480 is designed for flexible use with external control components and power amplifiers. These connections are easy to make during an initial installation, or at a later date, should you choose to upgrade your system. 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 In Jack. If other components are also prevented from receiving remote commands, only one sensor is needed. They may use this units sensor or a remote eye by running a connection from the Remote IR Out Jack to the Remote In jack on Harman Kardon or other compatible equipment. External Audio Power Amplifier Connections If desired, an optional, external amplifier may be used in place of the HK 3480s internal power amplifier. To connect an external power amplifier, first remove the jumper pins that connect the Preamp Out and Main In jacks on the rear panel. Keep the jumpers in a safe place should they be needed at a later time. Using high-quality audio interconnect cables, connect the Preamp Out Jacks to the input jacks on your power amplifier. Make certain to match the right output to the right input and the left output to the left input. When an external power amplifier is used, no special adjustments are required. All volume and other control adjustments are made using the standard front-panel or remote controls. If you wish to use external processing equipment, such as an equalizer, you may connect the device to the preamp-out and main-in jacks by removing the jumper pins between the Preamp Out and Main In jacks. Connect the Preamp Out jacks to the inputs of the external device, and the outputs of the device to the Main In jacks. Alternatively, you may connect the external device to the Tape Monitor Loop. Connect the Tape Monitor Record/Out Jacks to the inputs of the external device, and connect the outputs of the device to the Tape Monitor Play/In Jacks. AC Power Connections The Accessory Outlets are switched outlets and receive power as long as the receiver is turned on. Power to these outlets is removed when the unit is in the Standby mode. Speaker Placement For optimal listening enjoyment, and for soundfield reproduction that best re-creates the original recording, it is good practice to place the speakers so that they form a triangle with the speakers at the front of the room, and the preferred listening spot at the third point of the triangle. The distance between each speaker and the listener should be identical. For example, if the speakers are 10 feet from one another, each of the speakers should optimally be placed so that they are also 10 feet from the listener. It is also desirable to place speakers so that their tweeters, or high-frequency drivers are aimed at ear height when you are seated in the listening position.
Left Speaker Right Speaker
To optimize the sound field, or to suit your listening room environment, you may find that some experimentation is required to find the correct location. Ideally, pans from left to right across the front of the room should sound smooth, and instruments should appear to be coming from the proper location to where they would be placed in an orchestra. You may also prefer to toe-in the speakers slightly toward the listening position, as shown in the diagram, for improved imaging. The placement of subwoofers should be done as suggested in the manufacturers instructions. In general, subwoofers often produce best results when they are placed in the corner of a room, along the same wall as the speakers, but optimal placement will vary widely depending on room size, the subwoofer type and the placement of rugs and furniture in a room. It may be helpful to temporarily position the subwoofer in the usual listening position, then walk around the room while program material is playing until the bass reproduction sounds best to your ears. That location is likely to be the optimum position for the subwoofer. Finally, when all connections are complete, plug the power cord into a nonswitched 120-volt AC wall outlet. Youre ready to enjoy the HK 3480!
A good starting point for speaker placement is to make the distance between the two speakers, and the distance between either speaker and the listener, identical.
Once you have completed the setup and configuration of your new receiver, it is simple to operate and enjoy. The following instructions will provide the steps needed to enjoy the HK 3480: Install the two supplied AAA batteries in the remote as shown. Be certain to observe the (+) and () polarity indicators shown in the bottom of the battery compartment. your TV or video display, you will be able to enjoy video programs from a broadcast, cable or satellite television system; a VCR or hard-disk video recorder; a DVD player; or any other video device with analog line-level audio outputs and a composite video output. NOTE: Although the HK 3480 is an audio/video receiver, it is not a surround sound receiver. Audio will be played in two-channel stereo or monaural, depending on how the program material is encoded, and you will not be able to hear any additional channels that may be encoded in your source materials. The HK 3480 offers the versatile VMAx mode, described below, which enables you to hear a simulated surround sound presentation. However, VMAx processing uses different algorithms than conventional surround decoders to derive the phantom center and surround speakers, and the presentation will differ from what you may hear when listening to equipment using other surround processors. You will not be able to make any digital audio connections through the HK 3480. The HK 3480 is designed to provide video entertainment in a small system application that includes devices such as a TV, VCR or DVD player located in a bedroom, office or spare room, or as part of a multiroom system when used with a multiroom controller. During a listening session you may wish to adjust the Bass , Treble and Balance controls to suit your listening tastes. Adjust the volume to a comfortable level using the front-panel Volume Control or remote Master Volume Up/Down buttons. The volume level is displayed as a negative number of decibels (dB) in the Main Information Display B. The volume level is relative to a maximum volume level that has been assigned the value of 0dB. It is important that you make sure never to exceed this maximum volume level (0dB) at any time, in order to avoid possible damage to your loudspeakers due to clipping, a type of distortion that is not audible to the human ear until it is severe enough to permanently damage most loudspeakers. It is also possible, depending upon the program material, for clipping to occur at volumes below the maximum volume level. To temporarily silence all speaker outputs, press the Mute Button 4. This will cut the output to all speakers, but it will not affect any recording or dubbing that may be in progress. When the system is muted, the Mute Indicator K will flash in the Information Display and MUTE will flash in the Main Information Display B. Press the Mute Button 4 again to return to normal operation. For private listening, plug the 1/4" stereo phone plug from a pair of stereo headphones into the front-panel Headphone Jack 3.

The active speakers will be indicated by the Speaker Indicators L. Both speakers may be turned off for private headphone listening.

To cancel the Sleep function, press the Sleep Button * until the Sleep Timer C numbers disappear and the Information Display shows the current source. Pressing any control button while the Sleep control is activated will momentarily return the Information Display to full brightness for increased legibility without interrupting the Sleep function.
