Introduction
Thank you for choosing Harman Kardon! 
With the purchase of a Harman Kardon 
AVR 330 you are about to begin many years of
listening enjoyment. Designed to provide all the
excitement and detail of movie soundtracks and
every nuance of musical selections, the AVR 330
is truly a multichannel receiver for the new mil-
lennium. In addition to the traditional 5.1 digital
decoding modes such as Dolby Digital and DTS,
it offers the latest advancements in surround
technology such as Dolby Pro Logic II, the full
suite of DTS-ES 6.1 modes, DTS Neo:6 and the
latest 7.1 channel versions of Harman's own
Logic 7 technology.
The AVR 330 has been engineered so that it is
easy to take advantage of all the power of its
digital technology. On-screen menus, fully color
coded connection jacks and terminals and our
exclusive EzSet
remote make installation fast
and simple. However, to obtain the maximum
enjoyment from your new receiver, we urge you
to read this manual. A few minutes spent learn-
ing the functions of the various controls will
enable you to take advantage of all the power
the AVR 330 is able to deliver.
If you have any questions about this product, its
installation or its operation, please contact your
retailer or custom installer. They are your best
local sources of information.
Description and Features
The AVR 330 is among the most versatile and
multifeatured A/V receivers available, incorporat-
ing a wide range of listening options. In addition
to Dolby Digital and DTS decoding for digital
sources, a broad choice of surround modes for
Matrix surround-encoded or Stereo recordings
are available for use with sources such as CD,
VCR, TV broadcasts and the AVR 330’s own
FM/AM tuner. Along with Dolby Digital EX, Dolby
Pro Logic II, DTS Neo:6, Dolby 3 Stereo, 5
Channel or 7 Channel Stereo and Hall and
Theater modes, the AVR 330 offers Harman
International’s exclusive Logic 7 process in both
5.1 and 7.1 versions to create a wider, more
enveloping field environment and more defined
fly-overs and pans. Another Harman Kardon
exclusive is VMAx, which uses proprietary pro-
cessing to create an open, spacious sound field
even when only two front speakers are available.
In addition to providing a wide range of listening
options, the AVR is easy to configure so that it
provides the best results with your speakers and
specific listening-room environment.
A Stereo-Direct mode bypasses the digital
processor to preserve all of the subtleties of
older analog, two-channel materials, while bass
management, available in the surround and
Stereo-Digital modes,improves your ability to
tailor the sound to suit your room acoustics or
taste.
On-screen menus make it simple to enter set-
tings for speaker configurations and bass man-
agement, and the EzSet remote measures a sys-
tem’s sound levels and automatically calibrates
them for perfectly balanced sound field presen-
tation.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the AVR features
connections for five video devices, all with both
composite and S-Video inputs. Two additional
audio inputs are available, and a total of six digi-
tal inputs and three outputs make the AVR 330
capable of handling all the latest digital audio
sources.
For compatibility with the latest HDTV video
sources and progressive scan DVD players, the
AVR also features wide-bandwidth,
low-crosstalk component video switching.
Coax and optical digital outputs are available for
direct connection to digital recorders. Two video
recording outputs, preamp-out and a color-
coded eight-channel input make the AVR 330
virtually future-proof, with everything needed to
accommodate tomorrow’s new formats right on
board.
The AVR 330 flexibility and power extend
beyond your main home theater or listening
room. The AVR includes a sophisticated multi-
zone control system that allows you to select
one source for use in the main room and a dif-
ferent one (Audio only) in a second room.
Complete control over volume is possible with a
separate infrared control link. To make it easy to
operate the AVR 330 from a remote room, a
separate “Zone II” remote is included. Additional
multiroom options include the option to assign
two of the AVR’s output channels to the multi-
room system.
The AVR 330’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 
receiver more then fifty years ago. With state-of-
the-art circuitry and time-honored circuit designs,
the AVR 330 is the perfect combination of the
latest in digital audio technology, a quiet yet
powerful analog amplifier in an elegant,
easy-to-use package.

SAFETY INFORMATION
Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR has been designed for use with 220-
240-Volt AC current. Connection to a line
voltage other than that for which it 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.
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 electrical devices, do not run power
cords under rugs or carpets or place heavy
objects on them. Damaged power cords should
be replaced immediately by an authorized
service depot with a cord 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 components 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 a
staple accidentally falls inside the unit,
disconnect it from the AC power source
immediately, and consult an authorized service
station.
Installation Location
■ To assure 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.
■ Make certain that proper space is provided
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 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.
Cleaning
When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean,
soft, dry cloth. If necessary, wipe it with a soft
cloth dampened with mild soapy water, then a
fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe 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.
Moving the Unit
Before moving the unit, be certain to disconnect
any interconnection cords with other
components, and make certain that you
disconnect the unit from the AC outlet.
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 should the unit ever need repair.
To minimize the size of the carton in storage,
you may wish to flatten it. This is done by
carefully slitting the tape seams on the bottom
and collapsing the carton. Other cardboard
inserts may be stored 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 are
recyclable. Please respect the environment and
discard those materials at a local recycling
center.
