AVR 1510S is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good start so far and excellent value I've had this for 2 weeks. It is used for a sound system in the bedroom, so not my main system but could pinch hit well in if it had to. Excellent to date, but only 2 weeks. I like the feature set and am using with 2 speakers. Fine sound quality and study the manual some before you use it. Pretty easy to setup. Did I say excellent value? Yes, I did.

&gt; Product: AVR151S/230 Many radio stations hang. Display shows: &quot;Tuner / Connecting ...&quot; After pressing back button the display starts showing: &quot;vTuner / Please wait ...&quot; The only way around is to unplug and plug 220V power cable. What do do?

Asked by: MarekL
Hi there, thanks for asking. Is this for a local radio station or vTuner stations?

Is there a way to use the auto power feature to put the unit to sleep after a predetermined time but NOT completely power the unit off? In other words I would like the unit to sleep automatically but, don't want it to power completely off automatically.

Asked by: Marbieskarb
That is not the case with my receiver. No matter what source/cable I'm using, the receiver will not go to sleep after a predetermined time (I believe it should be 30 minutes) with the auto-power off. If I manually put the device to sleep by pressing the power button, the device will eventually fully power off. Again, this is even with the auto-power feature turned off.

I've purchased an Ultra HD HDR TV. Will my AVR 1015s passthrough Ultra HD HDR data? I have an Amazon Fire TV streaming box that supports Ultra HD and I recently upgraded my Netflix account to Ultra HD. Do I need to upgrade cables? Thanks!

I'm wanting to buy this amp for my HKTS system. However, i have read there has been a problem with only allowing the system to run for 90 minutes before it shuts off, unless you change it in the settings everytime you turn it on. Has this been fixed?

will the AVR-1510S connect to WiFi to tune in to radio signals without being physically plugged into the network like my laptop or phone?

Asked by: CUarch73
No, the AVR 1510S does not have Wi-fi capability, it would only be able to use the Spotify service when it's connected to the router via ethernet cable.

Can I hook up my turntable to your receiver and play my records?

Asked by: Chuck101
The AVR 1510s doesn't have a phono preamp for turntables, you'll need to get an external phono preamp in order to get it connected with this receiver and play your records.Although if your turntable already has a built in phono preamp, you may directly connect it to the receiver.

If a record player has an analog out jack, can it be connected to the analog in of the receiver and work?

Asked by: Michael A
Hi! The AVR 1510S does not have a phono input where the record player should be connected.&nbsp;However, if your&nbsp;turntable has a built-in phono preamp, you connect your turntable to one of the receiver's line (or auxiliary) inputs instead of its phono input.
