INTRODUCTION 3
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Harman Kardon!
With the purchase of a Harman Kardon
AVR5000 you are about to begin many years of
listening enjoyment. The AVR5000 has been cus-
tom designed to provide all the excitement and
detail of movie sound tracks and every nuance
of musical selections. With onboard Dolby*
Digital and DTS
decoding, the AVR5000 delivers
six discrete channels of audio that take advan-
tage of the digital sound tracks from the latest
DVD and LD releases and Digital Television
broadcasts.
While complex digital systems are hard at work
within the AVR5000 to make all of this happen,
hookup and operation are simple. Color-keyed
connections, a backlit, programmable and learn-
ing remote control, and on-screen menus make
the AVR5000 easy to use. To obtain the maxi-
mum enjoyment from your new receiver, we
urge you to take the time to read through this
manual. This will ensure that connections to
speakers, source playback units and other exter-
nal devices are made properly. In addition, a
few minutes spent learning the functions of the
various controls will enable you to take advan-
tage of all the power the AVR5000 is able to
deliver.
If you have any questions about this product, its
installation or its operation, please contact your
dealer. He is your best local source of informa-
tion.
Description and Features
The AVR5000 is among the most versatile and
multi-featured A/V receivers available, incorpo-
rating a wide range of listening options. In addi-
tion to Dolby Digital and DTS decoding for digi-
tal sources, a broad choice of analog surround
modes are available for use with sources such as
CD, VCR, TV broadcasts and the AVR’s own
FM/AM tuner. Along with Dolby Pro Logic*,
Dolby 3 Stereo, 5 Ch Stereo and custom Hall and
Theater modes, only Harman Kardon receivers
offer Logic 7
®
to create a wider, more enveloping
field environment and more defined fly-overs
and pans.
Finally, the AVR5000 is among the very few A/V
receivers that offer decoding of MP3 data, so
that you may listen to the latest music selections
directly from compatible computers or playback
devices with the power and fidelity you expect
from Harman Kardon.
Another Harman Kardon exclusive is VMAx
,
which uses proprietary processing to create an
open, spacious sound field even when only two
front speakers are available.
The AVR 5000 is also able to offer HDCD
®
decoding to provide the most realistic playback
of CDs when a digital connection is used, even
with a normal non-HDCD-compatible CD or DVD
player.
In addition to providing a wide range of listening
options, the AVR5000 is easy to configure so
that it provides the best results with your speak-
ers and specific listening-room environment.
On-screen menus make it simple to enter set-
tings for speakers, inputs and delay times, while
our exclusive EzSet™ remote measures a sys-
tem‘s sound levels and automatically calibrates
them for perfectly balanced soundfield presenta-
tion.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the AVR5000 fea-
tures connections for five video devices, all with
both composite and S-Video inputs. Two addi-
tional audio inputs are available, and a total of
six digital inputs make the AVR5000 capable of
handling all the latest digital audio sources.
For compatibility with the latest DVD players and
digital video products, the AVR5000 also fea-
tures component video switching. Coax and
optical digital outputs are available for direct
connection to digital recorders, and both the
front panel analog audio/video and the coaxial
digital jacks may be switched to an output for
use with portable recorders – a Harman Kardon
exclusive. Two video recording outputs, preamp-
out/main-in jacks, and a six channel input make
the AVR5000 virtually future-proof, with every-
thing needed to accommodate tomorrow’s new
formats right on board.
The AVR5000’s 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 in a second room. Left and right front
channel audio is routed to the remote room
location, with complete control over volume pro-
vided by a separate infrared control link. To
make it easy to operate the AVR 5000 from a
remote room, a separate Zone II remote is
included.
The AVR5000’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-seven years ago. With state-
of-the-art circuitry and time-honored circuit
designs, the AVR5000 is one of the finest
receivers ever offered by Harman Kardon.

SAFETY INFORMATION
Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR5000 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 con-
siderable 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.
