    I have a Fender Strat and I'm wondering if it is possible
    to connect it to my Harman Kardon 125.

    Can I kill the reciever?
    Can I listen to myself through in glorious 5.1 while
    trying to jam with the late great Roy Buchanan?
    If it is possible, what cables/accessories do I need?

    A good mic, and a mixing console, that mixes down to -10db line levels. Mic your guitar amp.

    No other way really works.

    Bass will somewhat work well, but not guitar.

    just get a little practice amp...

    or do what I do...

    when I wanna play along, I hook up my wireless into my 1970's JMP, crank it, go upstairs and play along [​IMG]

    Cheers,

    I sure wouldn't do it. You can get yourself a cheapie Frontman practice amp for less than $100 if you want to play along with Roy, though I'd recommend a Laney LC-15 or LC-15r (has reverb).

    My LC-15r, with replacement loudspeaker (mandatory, the stock speaker sucks), absolutely rips. Depending on how I set gain and volume levels, I can get everything from a ringing, chiming clean tone a la Vox AC-15, to a nasty, positively more-Marshall than Marshall distorted tone. All in a 15 watt package you can get on eBay for less than 200 bucks. Absolutely killer practice amp.

    I say this not because I own one (hell, I own six amps and have owned many others over the years), but because it IS the perfect practice amp IMHO.
