Question about Harman Kardon AVR 120 Receiver

1 Answer

AVR 120 5.1 -dolby surround sound & logic 7.

Hi, I've had for a few years now 2 JBL S310 front speakers (36" high)
connected on my H.K. AVR 120 and my H.K. CD/DVD 50 player.
And I just purchased a Bose vcs10 center and 2 surround speakers 301
And I had a technician install them to my Harman Kardon AVR 120
receiver, but almost no sound is coming out of the surround speakers !!
Either I have to program my speakers for hearing them properly
when in dolby surround for a DVD or BLUE RAY.
And also when I listen to a CD it does'nt automatically go to logic 7 nor
on 5ch stereo since I have now 5 speakers to hear my music...
and when done manually, it's still only heard on both front speakers !?
I'm very disappointed... and do not know what to do ??

Please inform what to do, or if there is a H.K. technician I can speak to.
THX

    Unfortunetly, I cannot see clearly the back of my receiver, since it's in a cabinet tightly installed without any good access...

    And I could better try tomorrow morning, lighting will be better...

    But is'nt there a procedure to program the speakers (if they are

    wired properly) from the front of the receiver...

    If not I will get back to you tomorrow.

    THX anyway...

    if both audio in and out ( including the digital connection) is hooked up it should be working in surround sound , and if the digital signal (optical or coax) is not hooked up then the digital surround sound will not work , only a virtual surround sound can be set up

    can you tell if that is hooked up that way, with a digital connection also connected?

Are you sure that model is HDMI v1.4 compliant? I know my Denon 8508 is not so I use optical outs to get 5.1 surround sound.

Our denon 1708 only play on stereo mode,no sound when it select on 7 channel.. crackling on dolby. what is the problem on that receiver? please help


The surround sound outputs outputs ic's in the remainder of the system have opened, or there is a short in the speaker wiring, check to make sure that is not the case, if okay! you will need a repairman to assess the situation.

All the speaker outlets seem to work fine, except the fronts, all will work, but if i plug the fronts in, all the sound then tends to just fade away, and then i have nothing, no sound. i can't figure...


I would:
1- First make sure you are properly testing using a reliable source, such as a CD Player or itunes. 2- Make sure the Listening Preset is not on Dolby Pro Logic. Make sure it is on Stereo mode and see if the problem persists.
What usually happens is that when listening to 2ch (Left and Right) Audio such as Television or Music and Dolby Pro Logic is on as a preset, Dolby Pro Logic analyzes both Stereo tracks, tries to detect the voices (center channel), ambient sounds (surround and fronts) and processes the signals into a 5.1 or 6.1 System. You tend to get a fading effect when Dolby Pro Logic is selected and listening to an old VHS, DVD or even music.
To remove a preset, make sure you select the Stereo button at the bottom left of the remote to pan through the options.
Hope this helps

I con not get the surround sound to work. It only goes into stero mode with the same sound from all the speakers


The AVR-1911 is an A/V receiver with HDMI version 1.4a that can be connected to TVs and other devices that support 3D video such as Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and set-top boxes. This receiver supports not only Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and other HD Audio formats but also Dolby Pro Logic IIz for enhanced vertical and horizontal spatial performance at the front, the essence of 3D acoustics complementing the excitement of 3D video. The AVR-1911 comes with numerous other features such as 1080p up-conversion to give you a sharp, high-definition picture from DVD and other standard video sources, and a Glow-key remote control unit that is easy to use in the dark, to maximise your home theatre experience. Check if the RCA connector is properly connected.. Sometimes the problem is in the CD or DVD itself. Try to go to www.denon.com. ty

I am having trouble getting my surround sound to output my foxtel dvd using standard av cords is there anywhere i can get a diagram


Hi, I'm not too sure what you're asking - do you mean that sound is only coming out of 2 of the speakers? A lot of foxtel shows aren't meant for surround sound - usually only box office movies.

For best results, use a digital optical cable (not the one with a round end, one that's fibre optic, say that to a store and they will give you the right one) - connect to the optical/toslink input of your surround sound system.

You may have to turn on "dolby pro logic 2" to get all speakers working on some shows. Or you can try just plugging in the 2 red/white stereo cables into the amp, and using pro logic that way. Pro logic creates surround sound, even when your show is only stereo.

I guess that will do it .


Have a nice day.

Problem getting the best surround sound when watching a dvd


THE BEST SOUND IS WHAT SOUNDS BEST TO YOU, HOWEVER DO THIS:
1, USING THE SETUP MIC CONFIGURE YOUR DENON, PAGE 8 OF THE MANUAL. NEXT
2. RAISE THE REAR SPKR LEVELS, PAGE 46,47. NEXT
3. WHEN LISTENING TO AUDIO CD OR RADIO TRY THE 5 CH STEREO DSP MODE.
4. WHEN WATCHING A DVD USE DSP DOLBY PROLOGIC OR TRY 5CH STEREO IF THE MOVIE IS MOSTLY TALKING.
5, TRY 5CH STEREO WHEN WATCHING PROGRAMS WITH MOSTLY TALKING
