The AVR 1510S high-performance, audio/video receiver pumps out 75 watts per channel to power a full 5.1-channel surround sound system. It can also connect to powered subwoofers to provide enhanced low-frequency performance for your music, movies, HDTV shows, sports and video games. While the amplifier retains the time-tested Harman Kardon high-current-capacity (HCC), ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design to ensure the most accurate, dynamic sound with enhanced clarity and realism, even at the highest listening levels, a digitally based power supply gives the amplifier all the muscle it needs without the weight of traditional power-supply designs and their heavy transformers. The net result is a great-sounding product in a smaller form factor that is friendly to the environment.

The AVR 1510S can connect to compatible Apple devices, such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, directly via its front-panel USB jack, and play their content without the need for an external adapter. The AVR 1510S also features Spotify Connect, which allows you to stream music directly from your Spotify premium account on your phone, tablet or computer.

There is no loss of video or audio quality because of format conversion, just full-impact Hollywood excitement as its creators meant you to experience it. And because it features 4K passthrough, your ultra-high definition videos will make it all the way to compatible television screens.

The AVR 1510S gives you more options for audio playback with its front-panel USB port. Simply connect an iPhone, iPad or USB stick to play your stored tracks through your home entertainment system.

The HARMAN GreenEdge logo assures you that the AVR 1510S’s design is environmentally friendly without compromising the premium performance for which HARMAN products are known. Thanks to an advanced power supply, the AVR 1510S can deliver high-quality audio in a small, light chassis that uses less metal and plastic.

The AVR 1510S takes the award-winning Harman Kardon design look to a new level with a flush volume control and more compact design. Because of the lighter weight made possible by an advanced digital power supply, the unit weighs less without sacrificing performance so that it is the perfect match for the thin glass shelves of today’s open TV/entertainment furniture.

All connections on the AVR 1510S are colour-coded to simplify hook-up and reduce errors. What could be easier?

The AVR 1510S simplifies your life with a programmable infrared (IR) remote control. Its design works seamlessly with the receiver’s multilingual on-screen display, guiding you through system setup and operation with consummate ease. The multidevice remote can also control your TV, cable boxes, satellite tuners and other playback sources.For further installation flexibility, there is a 12-volt trigger output and a remote IR sensor input.

AVR 1510S is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have the AVR-350 version.. fully light-ed remote AWESOME ! High-performance, 5.1-channel A/V receiver makes your music, movies and shows sound better than ever. Whether it’s your Blu-ray™ player, HD cable set-top box or game console, you want the best picture quality and sound. And you need one simple way to connect them all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality Was looking for a budget receiver to drive 5 speakers and a woofer, and this does all that I was looking for. It looks nice and sounds great. The only negative I can say about the receiver is that the settings interface (that you get as video output from the receiver) really doesn't look too polished, and unless you're navigating settings on a display device, it's fairly tough to figure out what you're doing. Minus one star for this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No stereo mode for four speakers . This isn’t what I anticipated, so I really am disappointed

What is the best option for HKTS 9/16 as far as a receiver....just bought the speakers just want to make the best choice because I've always loved your products....just need a good receiver that will match up well at a decent price

Asked by: Hottscamm
The HKTS 9/16 has a rated power handling of 80W RMS, with that said, any AVR with a rated power output of up to 80W is compatible or is recommended for the speakers. The AVR 1510S is compatible with the HKST 9/16 speaker system as it has a rated power output of 75W per channel.

I am owner of AVR 151S. I made a software update with the following Software: " AVR 1510 - Software Version V001.10 - Released April 2015".Is it compatible with my receiver?

Asked by: paperiss
Even thought the receiver works fine with the new firmware, I will contact with my local Harman distributor in my country. I have to mention that no changes have been made to menus or to the other functions and no perceptible reduction in the quality of sound.

Hello, Can anyone tell me what the volume scale is.  

Asked by: Brach
The volume is displayed as a negative number of decibels (dB) below the 0dB reference point (–80dB – +10dB). 0dB is the maximum recommended volume for your AVR. Although it’s possible to turn the volume to a higher level, doing so may damage your hearing and your speakers. For certain more dynamic audio materials, even 0dB may be too high, allowing for damage to equipment. Use caution with regard to volume levels. To change the volume level display from the default decibel scale to a 0-to-90 scale, adjust the Volume Units setting in the System Settings menu.

What are the differences between the AVR 1510 and the AVR 1510s

Asked by: GeorgeB
The AVR 1510S features Spotify Connect, which allows you to stream music directly from your Spotify premium account on your phone, tablet or computer, which the AVR1510 does not have. Other than that, both have same specifications.

Does this have a DAC built in if so what are the specs?

Asked by: Thaikodrums
The AVR1510S uses the Cirrus Logic CS42528 ADC DAC. You can find the specifics for it at this link... https://www.cirrus.com/en/pubs/proDatasheet/CS42528_F2.pdf
