INTRODUCTION  3
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Harman Kardon!
With the purchase of a Harman Kardon 
AVR 200RDS you are about to begin many years
of listening enjoyment. The AVR 200RDS has
been custom designed to provide all the excite-
ment and detail of movie sound tracks and
every nuance of musical selections. With
onboard Dolby* Digital, the AVR 200RDS deliv-
ers six discrete channels of audio that take
advantage of the digital sound tracks from the
latest DVD and LD movies and Digital Television
(DTV/HDTV) broadcasts.
While complex digital systems are hard 
at work within the AVR 200RDS to make all of
this happen, hookup and operation are simple.
Color-keyed connections and a comprehensive
remote control make the AVR 200RDS easy to
use. To obtain the 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 AVR 200RDS is able to deliver.
If you have any questions about this product, its
installation or its operation, please contact your
dealer or custom installer. They are your best
local source of information.
Description and Features
The AVR 200RDS is a full-featured A/V receiver,
incorporating a wide variety of listening
options. In addition to Dolby Digital decoding,
Dolby Pro Logic* and Dolby 3 Stereo are 
available for compatibility with the tens of
thousands of movies and television programs
encoded with analog surround information. In
addition, specially programmed Theater and
Hall modes are available to enhance the enjoy-
ment of conventional two-channel stereo and
even mono recordings.
A total of four audio/video inputs, as well as two
additional audio-only inputs and separate 6
Channel Direct Input, are selected through a
remote control preprogrammed with all Harman
Kardon codes and an easy-to-read front-panel
display.
The AVR 200RDS’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 receiv-
er more than forty-five years ago. With state-of-
the-art circuitry and time-honored 
circuit designs, the AVR 200RDS is one of the
finest receivers ever offered by Harman Kardon
in its price class.
