700 watt audio/video receiver that boasts multiple wireless connectivity options, six HDMI inputs

Power, performance and more connectivity options than you’ll ever need: Introducing the Harman Kardon® networked AVR 1710, the answer to any entertainment enthusiast’s hunger for performance and versatility. It’s got muscle: up to 700 watts (100 watts per channel). Its 7.2-channel A/V receiver is equipped with HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple AirPlay, vTuner™ Internet radio and DLNA® 1.5 technology, giving you multiple options for streaming audio. And with six 3D-ready HDMI® inputs, including one equipped for MHL to connect mobile devices, and two HDMI outputs, you’ll have more than enough ways to connect to everything you love – movies, HDTV, sports, MHL-equipped devices and the Roku Streaming Stick™ dongle. While the AVR 1710’s connectivity alone makes it desirable, its sound really strikes a chord. It’s the first Harman Kardon AVR to feature our exclusive Natural Sound Processing (NSP), which creates a rich, enveloping surround-sound from any source – particularly with two-channel streaming content. And its EzSet/EQ™ III system automatically calibrates the AVR to your speakers and listening environment. The AVR 1710 is light, too, thanks to HARMAN GreenEdge™ certification – delivering all the power you need with low environmental impact. For those who want it all, the AVR 1710 can’t be matched.

AVR 1710 is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positively splendid! I have had the 1710 for over a year and I finally got around to upgrading from 5.1 to 7.2. I was a little worried at first that it would fall short or something would go wrong but this AVR with the HKTS 16 and the matching 2.1, is 1,100 Watts of unstoppable power. Listening to Eminem's, 'Rap God' on iTunes or Bob Marley's, 'Exodus' on Blu-Ray Pure Audio Disc this receiver seems to know how I want music to sound. I recommend the EzSet EQ then bump the bass up 2-3 clicks, my only gripe is that I do not have full control of surround modes, sometimes I can't select DTS sometimes I can't select Dolby, depends on the source, I know this is the receiver giving me the better sound, but I'm just used to having that option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top A/V Receiver on the Market! If you factor in the price, size, specs and quality, you'll agree that this is the best receiver all around on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds fantastic! I bought my second reciever from Harmon/Kardon in Feb.2014 and absolutely enjoy the AVR1710 as much as my last. It was still user friendly but the On Screen Display is a bit bland and took a little getting used to be easy overall including the whole setup process. I was blown away by how light it is out of the box. It had me worried for a second but as soon as I turned it on that went straight out the window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible vaule I've been using my AVR 1710 without fail since August 2013. It has taken everything I throw at it and performed above expectations for the price. Bluetooth menu could use and easier way to access, and as it is buried in the menus, I rarely if ever use it. Aside from Bluetooth, absolutely love this receiver.

With zhe latest firmware, can we use hdmi2.0 in AVR171?

Asked by: talince
No. With the latest firmware of the AVR1710, it only improves Android functionality with the receiver. Also, the AVR171 is an international version while the AVR1710 is a US version. That said, the AVR1710 software version found on this website is not compatible with the AVR171. It is possible that you may irreversibly damage the unit if you install it. Please contact your local Harman distributor in your country for the correct software version.

I don't know how to play my music with airplay on zone 2. can i do this?

Asked by: Mathieu
Zone 2 on the AVR1710 would not accept signals from digital sources, the Zone 2 can only utilize analog signals. With that said, Airplay utilizes the wireless network and uses digital audio signals, which cannot be set as an audio source for Zone 2.

Does the 1710S / 171S (Europe) do 4K upscaling on non-4K material?!  Also - please elaborate on 4k x 2k mentioned aboved - does this mean that the 4K standard 3840x2160 resolution is supported?! DLNA - also video content?!

Asked by: Henrik_Struer
The AVR1710S does not support 4k upscaling it only supports 4k x 2k bypass which is showing above. 4k x 2k bypass means that it can allow video signals with 4k resolution to pass through it and relay it to your 4k capable TV with no signal loss.

Would it be possible to using HDMI (PCM) to play multi-channel SACD on AVR 1710?   My BD player can output multi-channel PCM or DSD but it seems that the HDMI (Disc input) would only work on the CD layer of my SACD.   Is there a work around?

Asked by: Newfie
The AVR1710 will play exactly what the source is sending. The surround mode is dictated by the source. Please check the SACD player to be sure that it is sending the correct signal to the HDMI output on the player. As long as it is sending the correct signal, the AVR will play it.
