Question about Harman Kardon AVR 630 Receiver

Occassional sound from surround right channel

Occassionally I get no sound from my surround right channel. It works for months at a time and then stops for months at a time. It doesn't matter what input I am using (haven't tried direct input channels). When it isn't working, the static builds in volume until it pops and then goes quiet. It repeats until I shut off the unit for the day or unplug the speaker. I have tried changing speakers and even houses and couldn't lose the problem.

I'm not sure how to diagnos if the channel was always dead, and it is even harder to troubleshoot when it isn't broke.

    This unit is not under warranty (they only made it in 2003 and 2004 and it has a 2 yr warranty). I am looking to troubleshoot the internal components/connections on the pre-amp board as I believe that is where my problem is.

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio

A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your
home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular,
a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential
for a realistic and unified surround soundfield.
Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays
between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu.
Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay
settings is essential for the best results.
In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround
sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the
best surround sound field.

Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems

Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels
between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not
enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly
set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers
reach the listener at exactly the same instant.
This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should
be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same
time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the
viewer than the fronts.

To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems
apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels.

You have to configure it first. Make sure you follow the instructions on page 5 of your manual to run Auto MCACC Setup which tests the acoustics of your room, speaker size, power level, etc. This is necessary before it will enable you to use surround sound.

How do you make the 6.1 channel work? Right now it just says digital. Does 6. 1 channel sound better?


6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.

You must re-seat the HDMI board on and try. sometimes the connections come loose and causes the connection to the Relay trigger not to work.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


I had this problem too. Finally, after using the MCACC setup and making sure all the speakers worked, I found I had to set the source to FM, TV or whatever from the remote control and set the mode to advanced surround sound using the front panal button on the upper right. Had to fool with them a lot. Good luck.
