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

I need to replace my AVR 247. Can you advise the most comparable current model?

Asked by: Moggy
The AVR 247 is a 5.1 AV receiver, providing 65 watts per channel at 8 ohms. A comparable model would be the AVR 1510S. This model provides 75 watts per channel at 6/8 Ohms, and features Vtuner internet radio, 3D-ready HDMI inputs, Dolby &amp; DTS decoding.

I'm using a jump drive as USB to listen to my music. Do this receiver has a capability to shuffle the uploaded music?

Asked by: Marika
Yes, it does have a capability to shuffle the songs via USB. To do this, press the Options/Info button and select Shuffle. Each press of the Shuffle turns the setting on or off. The AVR will automatically repeat the tracks until playback is stopped manually.

My AVR 151 on/off not respond to remote as well as manually therefore i cant even switch on.

Asked by: DK123
I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with the AVR 151. If there is a light indicator when the unit is plugged in, please try changing the batteries of the remote control. In case there is no light indicator on the unit, please try plugging the unit to a different wall outlet. I noticed that you are in Sri Lanka. If you are still having issues, please contact the store where you purchased the unit and they will be able to help.

can i use these for JBL studio 270 or 280 loudspeakers?

Asked by: neeqs
Yes, either STUDIO 270 or STUDIO 280 will work fine with AVR 1510S. The STUDIO 270 and STUDIO 280 can each handle up to 200W at 8 Ohms, while the AVR 1510S can provide 75W per channel at 8 ohms. For more power distribution, please look into some of our higher current receivers.

AVR 151S - All speakers are working when I connect my laptop AUX to the receiver. But when the output is via HDMI the rear speakers and center speaker does not work. The only surround modes I get are 2 CH Stereo, Virtual Surround and Multi-CH PCM.

Asked by: Thaabith
Your laptop seems to be set to only send PCM/Stereo out of the HDMI output. As a result, the AVR is not capable of giving any surround modes. Please change the HDMI audio setting in your laptop so that it can send multi-channel audio.

Hi , i have bought the AVR 1510S and i am really satisfied with the sound , only i have some issues with the remote control. The power on / off doesn`t work, if i push this button nothing happens oly the button TV or others lights up.

Asked by: Walter07
Thank you for the question. The receiver remote responses is based on which device/mode is currently selected. If TV is selected, remote button labeled TV, then the remote is set to control the TV.

Hi, I have a Synology ds216j NAS. I would like to play audio and video files stored on this server. Is it compatible with that device?

Asked by: IstvanL
No. It's not compatible with the AVR 1510S when connected directly to the receiver. The NAS is a storage device whose data/info can be accessed when the unit is hooked to your wireless network. The 1510S does not have wifi capability nor dedicated software to access the NAS files. However there is a way for them to work together and that is if your using a computer as a bridge between them. The NAS acts as the content (Movie or music file) The computer will access those files via the network and run it on this dedicated media player. And you connect the pc to the AVR via HDMI to project the files being played.

how can I connect wirelessly? is there an adapter I can buy?

Asked by: ranatan
Just connect the AVR 1510S to a wireless router using RJ45(Ethernet cable) to stream audio through WIFI. You can also use the BTA 10 external Bluetooth adapter which will enable you to stream audio wirelessly into the AVR1510S from any Bluetooth-equipped portable device.
