Make Your Movie Library Look and Sound Its Best
Harman Kardon receivers have earned worldwide accolades for their uncompromising
sound quality, and the AVR 3600 builds upon this renowned heritage. It
incorporates the brand's acclaimed, high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier
sections, which generate 80 watts for each of the receiver's seven channels.
Whether it's the exciting sound of explosions from the latest movie or the
detailed nuances of your favorite musical artist, the AVR 3600's amplifier
delivers sound with uncompromised realism, dynamics and subtlety.
And what the AVR 3600 does for audio, it also does for video. You know that the
latest Blu-ray DiscÃ?Â¢?Ã?Â¢ movie or high-definition broadcast is going
to look great on your high-definition display, but what about everything else?
The Harman Kardon AVR 3600 improves the look of standard-definition video with
advanced Faroudja Torino processing, automatically upscaling lower-resolution
sources to the 1080p HD standard. You can also independently configure your
display settings and specify the optimal picture quality and aspect ratio for
sources such as game consoles or your DVD collection.
When it comes to surround-sound decoding, the AVR 3600 has you covered. In
addition to decoding the latest Blu-ray DiscÃ?Â¢?Ã?Â¢ and surround formats
such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HDÃ?Â¢?Ã?Â¢ Master Audio, the AVR 3600 also
includes proprietary Logic 7 processing, which is capable of generating discrete
5.1-channel or 7.1-channel sound from traditional two-channel sources. There is
even a MP3 Music Enhancer mode, which will bring new life to any compressed

enjoying your system at the listening level you want easy
Set It and Forget It
Tired of constantly having to adjust the volume on your current A/V setup? Do
loud commercials send you running for the remote control? Are you experiencing
dramatic differences in system performance at lower volume levels? Harman Kardon
and Dolby Laboratories have the solution. The Harman Kardon AVR 3600 is equipped
with Dolby Volume, Dolby Laboratories' latest sound-processing technology. Set
your preferred listening volume once, and the AVR 3600 will use Dolby Volume to
maintain that same volume level across all of your content, no matter what
source produces it. In addition, Dolby Volume on the AVR 3600 improves
surround-sound performance at low listening levels. The AVR 3600 even allows you
to customize the performance of Dolby Volume to match your listening preference.

microphone automatically calibrates and equalizes your AVR 3600. View
Fine-Tune Your System Like a Pro
There's an important difference between your home audio system and the systems
that you hear in movie theaters and concert halls. Professional systems are
precisely calibrated by audio technicians to deliver the best possible
surround-sound experience. Harman Kardon's powerful EzSet/EQ system gives you
all the tools you need to achieve professional sound calibration at home. This
proprietary, automated room-equalization and system-calibration feature
simplifies system setup and achieves optimal audio quality in any listening
room. It automatically measures the frequency-response dips and peaks in the
listening room with an advanced, omni-directional microphone and applies a
precise, compensating equalization curve to achieve extraordinary sonic
accuracy. Speaker-output levels and delay times are calibrated as well. The
system sounds complicated, but using it couldn't be easier. Just connect the
included microphone to your Harman Kardon AVR 3600 receiver and follow the
on-screen instructions. With a few simple steps, the AVR 3600 will automatically
adjust the sound to suit your exact room parameters.
Listen to What You Want, Where You Want
As any family will tell you, a two-zone entertainment system can be a real crowd
pleaser. While the kids watch their favorite movie on the theater system in the
den, for example, you can be out listening to your favorite CD on the deck or in
the back yard. The AVR 3600 makes setting up a basic multi-room system easy.
First, build a high-performance, 5.1-channel home theater around your video
display. Then assign the two remaining channels to a second zone, wire an extra
pair of speakers to a nearby room or outdoors, and you're done.
If you're planning a state-of-the-art, 7.1-channel home theater, you can still
take advantage of the AVR 3600's multi-zone capabilities. Either integrate a
dedicated multi-zone amplifier for a high-powered second zone, or integrate the
latest A-BUS distributed audio system for more flexibility and control, and you
can still enjoy sound in another part of the house. Of course, with the AVR
3600, people in each zone can choose to listen to what they want to. And with
the included second-zone remote or an A-BUS keypad, local control is only a
button press away.

videos with you. It's also a great way to simplify the entertainment experience
at home. Whether you have an iPod, or an iPhone, you'll definitely want to add
the optional Bridge III iPod dock to your Harman Kardon AVR 3600. The Bridge III
is a universal dock that connects with a single cable and lets you navigate your
music and video libraries with high-resolution on-screen menus using the
AVR-2600's remote control. Browse your iPod or iPhone the way you usually do,
whether by artist, album or genre. Audio is played back in rich, room-filling
