    I not only have the volume cotrol problem, but some of the selector/function buttons do not control what they say they do. It's like they are off by one function. Also, when I power on the unit, it defaults to surround sound,which I don't have hooked up, and I have to manually select stereo, c.d., etc. The volume control appears to have a "short" in it. When you tap the knob or case, it will operate.But the problem always retuens when you cycle the unit off and back on.

Are you using the two small silver touch + and - controls that are set close to the bottom of one sound stick? They are very discrete and easily missed. (I did at first.)

Denon AVR 1910 Volume Level


My Pioneer VSX-36TX (circa 2002) does the same thing. Modern AVR's count up from minus something to 0db and go just a few db higher into 'plus' territory. It seems arbitrary but that's how it is.

Ask yourself this: who ever really turned the volume knob up to maximum on any amp on purpose, and had speakers survive it? In other words, why have all that capacity on a potentiometer if you never use it?

Little known fact: With that in mind, Bose Corp actually designed a product that intentionally used the full physical travel of a volume control - the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System.

Ipod to harman/kardon


Using a headphone to RCA adaptor plug the headphone jack into the headphone connector of the Ipod. Then plug the RCA jacks into any available Analogue input on the receiver. Increase the volume on the Ipod to 80% then adjust the receiver's volume according.

Or get a dock that will allow remote control and charging, such as Roth, DLO or Wadia.

Volume display seems backward


This is because the volume knob on ANY stereo is actually an attenuator.  Meaning, the stereo would play at full blast (way too loud!) if left to it's own limits of power, so your volume knob is actually "dialing down" the power, or when fully turned up, letting it all flow.
The reason that the numbers change like that is it's showing you how much attenuation is happening in decibels, or dB, so for insTance, when it's at "-30" that's a pretty decent volume, but at "-5" it's much louder and your neighbors might complain.  I think you'll notice that it can be cranked to something like "+5" which on my AVR 100 will blow the speakers.
In other words, this is normal, so relax and enjoy the music!

Harman Kardon AVR 500: randomly accelerates volume levels.


The problem is with the actual eltromechanical element on the volume control, my avr 300 does this as well and I'll let you know the secret to avoiding it. There are small indents on the volume control as you turn it, if you leave it half way between indents, it will periodically start reading volume changes, if you're lucky it will go down, if you're unlucky by the time you've noticed it act up your speakers are blown. When you change the volume, make sure the control rests in an indent and the problem will never crop up again. A simple solution if you're the only one that uses the receiver.
