Transform your living space into your own private screening room.

This 425-watt, high-performance, 5.1-channel A/V receiver gives you more ways to connect to your favorite music, movies and shows. There are countless ways to access and store your favorite media, from external hard drives to set-top cable boxes to smartphones. But if your home audio/video receiver doesn’t give you options for connecting to those media, it’s borderline useless. The Harman Kardon® AVR 1610S gives you a simple way to connect to everything you love. This 425-watt, 5.1-channel, networked audio/video receiver is loaded with options that let you access your media. It features five 3D-ready HDMI® 2.0 inputs, including one compatible with MHL, so you’ll have more than enough ways to access content on your HD cable box, Blu-ray™ player, MHL-equipped portable devices. It also includes Spotify Connect and HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth® technology so you can stream high-fidelity audio from your mobile devices. Regarding sound, the AVR 1610S features our exclusive Natural Sound Processing (NSP), which creates a rich, enveloping sound from any source – particularly with two-channel streaming content. And to get the very best sound based on your speakers and listening environment, its new EZSet/EQ™ III process automatically calibrates the system. And with HARMAN GreenEdge™ technology, the AVR 1610S Sis environmentally friendly, too.

I have bought Harman Kardon HKTS 20 5.1 speakers. Please advise a receiver which would support iPhone or smart phones connectivity wireless (WiFi or Bluetooth etc) to receiver to play music.

Asked by: Harry_O
For these speakers I would recommend the AVR 1710S which drives 100W per channel @ 6/8 ohms while the HKTS 20 can handle 120W at 8 ohms, You can also connect your phone to the AVR via bluetooth so you can listen to your playlist on your phone.

Why none of those spectacular receiver do not have HD Radio tuner? This is terrible mistake!

Asked by: Marek K
Unfortunately, with the line of receivers that we have, an HD radio tuner is just not part of the design right now. However, as an alternative, you can use a source that does have an HD radio tuner.
