Hi, What are the THD vs. output power levels for a 3Ohm load(subwoofer)? Thank you

Asked by: IulianCioarca
Hello! Thank you for your message. THD means total harmonic distortion. it is usually only specified for the power amplifier, not for line-level outputs. If you sub-woofer is indeed a 3 Ohm design then it must be a passive box. The AVR 101 cannot drive a 3 Ohm load. In surround you need an active sub-woofer. The AVR 101, is specified 0.9% THD at 75W per channel. if you need more help concerning this, please contact our help-desk.

How many speakers can I hook up to the AVR 10? Will a pair of Studio 290, and a Studio sub 250p work?

Asked by: Saumanngalaxy
Hi, The AVR101 is a 5.1 channel AV Receiver. You can choose of course to only connect 2 front speakers and a subwoofer, theoretically turning your 5.1 channel to a 2.1 channel receiver. If you require any further information, please contact us at our Customer Service department

Is that unit for 4k resolusion??

Asked by: Krinos
Hi Krinos, Thank you for your question. The AVR 101 has 4K pass-through, but if you are going to play movies in 4K or streaming them, then the unit will not support 4K, as it does not have HDCP 2.2 for 4K material. Our SB450 is 4K ready. If you need more information, please contact us at customer.service@harman.com

Hi, Im having trouble setting my AVR101 to support 5.1 surround sound? when i run sound tests with youtube only the front three speakers seem to work and not the rear but when i check using the system the rear work well. I tried it on all setting? 

Asked by: Makulu
Hi, Assuming you have either a Smart TV with Youtube, or an AppleTV/Google Chromecast connected to your AVR 101, I would like to suggest you change the Audio Output on either of these devices to PCM. After this, you should be able to change the 2-channel stereo mode ( which also includes the center channel, when a speaker is connected there ) to a 5-channel stereo mode. Youtube doesn't stream in 5.1 channels, which is why the AVR automatically reverts to 2-Channel stereo. If you require further assistance, please contact us on customer.support@harman.com
