Congratulations! With the purchase 
of the Harman Kardon AVR5 you are
about to begin many years of listening
enjoyment. The AVR5 has been custom
designed to provide all the excitement
and detail of movie sound tracks and
every subtle nuance of musical selections.
While complex systems are hard at work
within the AVR5 to make all of this hap-
pen, hookup and operation are simple.
Color-keyed connections and a compre-
hensive programmable remote control
make the AVR5 easy to use. 
To obtain maximum enjoyment from
your new receiver, we urge you to take a
few minutes to read through this manual.
This will ensure that connections to
speakers, source playback units and other
external devices are made properly. In
addition, a few minutes spent learning
the functions of the various controls will
enable you to take advantage of all the
power the AVR5 is able to deliver.
Introduction

If you have any questions about this
product, its installation or operation,
please contact your dealer. They are your
best local source of information.
Description and Features
The AVR5 is a full-featured A/V receiver,
incorporating a wide variety of listening
options. In addition to Dolby
*
Pro Logic
*
and Dolby 3 Stereo, with “6-Channel
Direct” inputs, the AVR5 is ready for the
future. The AVR5 is digital ready, and
may be connected to an optional, exter-
nal digital decoder, or the outputs of a
DVD player, Digital TV or any product
that has its own Dolby Digital or DTS
decoder. A choice of Hall and Theater
modes is also available for use with 
both encoded sources and traditional
two-channel stereo recordings.
A total of four audio/video inputs, as well
as two additional audio-only inputs, and
an FM stereo/FM/AM tuner provide for
the utmost flexibility. Front-panel A/V
inputs simplify connections to video
games or camcorders. A high-quality
phono input is available so that you may
continue to enjoy your existing record
collection as well as the latest surround
technologies.
The AVR5’s powerful amplifiers use
traditional Harman Kardon High-Current
Design philosophies to meet the wide
dynamic range of any program selection.
Harman Kardon invented the high-
fidelity receiver more than forty-five years
ago. With state-of-the-art features and
time-honored circuit designs, the AVR5 is
one of the finest receivers ever offered by
Harman Kardon.

Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR5 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 haz-
ard, and may damage the unit.
If you have any questions about the volt-
age requirements for your specific model,
or about the line voltage in your area,
contact your selling dealer before plug-
ging 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 electri-
cal devices, do not run power cords under
rugs or carpets or place heavy objects on
them. Damaged power cords should be
replaced immediately with cords 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 compo-
nents inside this product. Opening the
cabinet may present a shock hazard, and
any modification to the product will void
your guarantee. If water or any metal
object such as a paper clip, wire or 
staple accidentally falls inside the unit,
disconnect it from the AC power source
immediately, and consult an authorized
service station. 
CATV or Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is
connected to this product, be certain that
it is grounded so as to provide some pro-
tection against voltage surges and static
charges. Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with respect to
proper grounding of the mast and sup-
porting structure, grounding of the lead-
in wire to an antenna discharge unit,
size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes and requirements
of the grounding electrode.
NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER:
This reminder is provided to call the
CATV (Cable TV) system installer’s atten-
tion to article 820-40 of the NEC that
provides guidelines for proper grounding
and, in particular, specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected to the ground-
ing system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as possible.
Installation Location
To assure proper operation, and to
avoid the potential for safety hazards,
place the unit on a firm and level sur-
face. When placing the unit on a shelf,
be certain that the shelf and any
mounting hardware can support the
weight of the product.
Make certain that proper space is pro-
vided 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 suffi-
cient air movement within the cabinet.
Under some circumstances a fan may
be required.
Do not place the unit directly on a
carpeted surface. 
Avoid installation in extremely hot or
cold locations, or an area that is
exposed to direct sunlight or heating
equipment.
Avoid moist or humid locations.
Do not obstruct the ventilation slots on
the top of the unit, or place objects
directly over them.
