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?

Have you tried the "Simulated" surround setting?

If you don't get sound in "Simulated" mode then you have probably lost the surround channels.

If you do get sound then your "Media"
is not recorded with a surround "Track". or the surround "Processor" may have issues that need to go to the repair shop.

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

We hooked it up and have no sound


From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console for a widescreen, high-definition TV, determine your audio options, and check your console's serial number and Xbox Dashboard version.
Go to correct section for ... Audio

Change your audio output settings for games from this screen. These audio settings do not affect DVD movie playback. For DVD audio settings, refer to an individual DVD movie's setup screen.

Settings consist of:

  • Analog Output Settings: choose Mono to merge the left and right audio signals so that you can hear all sound through a connection to a monaural TV or monitor; choose Dolby Pro Logic II to listen in normal stereo (no audio surround receiver required) or to listen to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II soundtracks from compatible games or other media.

    Dolby Pro Logic consists of four channels of audio: front left/center/right and a monaural surround channel that is mirrored in each of your rear left/right speakers. Dolby Pro Logic II uses digital signal processing to generate 5.0 audio (front left/center/right, rear left/right) from any stereo (left/right) programming, whether from movies, music, or games. Unlike movies and music, however, games are specially encoded with Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in mind.

    To listen in either Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, you must connect your cable's left/right (white/red) RCA connectors to a compatible surround receiver. For more information, see our connection page for the cable you're using:
  • Digital Output Settings: configure this setting only if you'll be using the Toslink optical digital-audio output from a compatible Xbox 360 AV cable (optical digital-audio cable sold separately):


    The default digital-audio setting is Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is your preference, you do not have to make a selection from this screen.

Whent I connet my android to my samsung HTC55 using the aux 2, just one speaker work, that is correct? is there a way to connect my android and all my speakers work


Your Android phone can only output in mono or stereo, but it does not have a surround sound decoder, so it cannot output natively to a 5.1 surround sound system. However, your HTC550 has a Surround Sound Mode called Dolby Pro Logic II, which will simulate 5.1 sound from any stereo input. Try activating Dolby Pro Logic II mode on your receiver to get surround sound on your Android phone.
