Abstract. For various Fourier expansions by orthogonal systems a Hörmander-type multiplier condition implies a Littlewood--Paley theory and from it a sharp Marchaud-type inequality is deduced for the $K$-functional related to the operator generating the orthogonal system and for related moduli of smoothness.
