     Hey, guys! I'm new here, but I've been a lurker for a while now on some of the audio related sub-forums. I had a question about remote controls for the Harman Kardon AVR 635. I recently scored one of these on eBay for a good deal, but it is missing the remote control. I couldn't find any...

    Unfortunately, it appears my Harman Kardon AVR 635 has another bad capacitor. I originally purchased it eight years ago as a factory refurbished unit via Harman Audio on eBay. The first unit they sent me had to be replaced because it would lose all its settings when the power went out. Harman...

    First off, let me say I'm sorry to be asking a question about such an old receiver, but I'm at a loss. I've searched through nearly every post I can find on the AVS forum for the past 2 hours and can't find any help. So, here's my problem. I have a Harmon Kardon AVR 635 receiver and when I...

    I have recently stumbled across a Harman Kardon AVR-635 for $75. A steal at the price. Is there a way to use it as an amp only? IE I want to be able to power the 635 with a remote, but I dont want the volume to change on it. Here is some extraneous information. My current set up is 7x Snell...

    I've got an HK AVR 635z that I'm thinking of upgrading from - the speaker set it's matched up with is: 2x Axiom M60ti's 1x Axiom VP150 4x Axiom QS8's 1x SVS 20-39 I'd really like to get a new AVR that has HDMI, the HK AVR 2650 has that & seemingly similar specs to the 635, is this a...

     Hi Everyone. My current AVR is an HK AVR-635. I've had it for about 7 years now and it is starting to show its age with some errors in video playback from multiple devices. Thus its time to upgrade. I'm just getting lost in all the options at this point. I also thought about upgrading the...

    Hi all, Haven't been around for years. I downsized my home to the point HT wasn't reasonable and have been living with a sound bar. I'm moving to a larger place soon and should be able to get back to real HT audio (either 5.1 or 7.1). My last HT was 7.1 system with Aerial speakers and a...

    Not a question, but I felt inclined to post the results of a couple repairs/mods I performed on my Harman Kardon AVR 635 receiver. Since the unit was new, it has never retained its settings during a power outage. Turns out the problem was with a "Super Capacitor" (C557 on DSP board). Although...

    I just got a Denon 3312 to replace my Harmon Kardon 635. The 635 would forget all its setting every time I lost power so I decided to get the 3312 to replace it. The 635 was rated at 75RMS/CH all channels driven at the same time so it wasn’t a powerhouse but it got the job done. I am running...

    My AVR will not save my audio/video input setup any longer. Whenever the power cable is unplugged, it reverts back to my setup from like 2 years ago. How can I get it to save my new settings?? Thanks!!

    Hi, for all of you lucky 635 owners the long wait for the firmware is over...there are also pleasant surprises, for one, the EzSet/EQ is said to have been "refined" and some users are reporting some changes in the menu. This thread is created to log HK635/435 firmware experiences. I have a...

    Does the 635 let you turn off the auto EQ functions and set up the delays, balance, Xover, and individual speaker volume manually if you want? Old school meathod.
