High-performance audio/video receiver that boasts multiple wireless connectivity options, six HDMI inputs and 700 watts of beautiful sound. Power, performance and more connectivity options than you’ll ever need: Introducing the Harman Kardon® networked AVR 1710S, 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 Spotify Connect, giving you multiple options for streaming audio. And with six 3D-ready HDMI® 2.0 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 171’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 1710S 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 1710S can’t be matched.

AVR 1710S is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound My personal stereo has good RBH speakers, but I noticed my old amplifier did not provide enough power to really take advantage of the speakers. I had many requirements for the replacement: I wanted a new integrated amplifier to deliver at least 100 watts per channel in stereo, with separate subwoofer output. Also, because of space restrictions the amplifier had to be less than 12 inches deep. This left me with very few choices. One amplifier from Pyle which probably was not the highest quality, the HK 3770 and the HK 1710s. I only needed the amplifier for my stereo, so I did not need a 5.1 or 7.1 home theater system. Blue Tooth was a desirable but not necessary feature. I was ready to buy the HK 3770 but after I asked the question, I was told this amplifier did not have control over the cross over frequency to the subwoofer. I felt this was a necessary feature to optimize my speaker set up. So, I went for the HK 1710s even though I knew I would be paying for lots and lots of features and connections I did not need. Well, I installed the new amplifier and I am happy to report that the Harman Kardon avr 1710s “made my speakers sing”. Beautiful sound! I read a lot of complaints about the user interface and the remote. Yes, it would be nice to have bigger keys for the volume control, but the remote and user interface are adequate. I was able to set up the system very easily… even more so with only three speakers, one optical digital input and one analogue input. One feature I appreciate is the direct digital input, to let the DAC in the amplifier do the conversion. HK’s DAC plus its processing options are way superior to the DAC in my CD player. I hope the product is durable, but only time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi channel sound and amazing 2 channel So I got this a week ago, I think I can give a basis on what this receiver is good at and what it lacks.... I love the detail and clarity. It’s very Mid based on the audio spectrum. The mid range in this system is magical. There is a difference between audiophile sound and studio sound. This receiver by no means is studio related. But it does to direct format from sources like Dolby and dts. Up to 7.2 channels. Don’t worry if you don’t have a subwoofer. This receiver has a tone of bass. But it’s not up front Bass. Picture and 70/80’s cabinet speaker. As of Bass it goes very low and sound very nice, and there is little distortion. I am using klipsch reference speaker. So it might be different depending on your speakers.... You won’t be disappointed. I was smart and bought this refurbished for 220$ so for me this is a even better deal but even for 550$ this is a good deal.

Hi! My AVR 1710S doesn't seem to pass through HDR content to my TV. UHD/4k material passes through, but not in HDR...not when the source is a Playstation 4 or Nvidia Shield. Doesn't it support HDR passtrough?

can I connect a bluetooth headphone to the receiver?

Asked by: agaluga
Hi there, you cannot connect the two over Bluetooth as they are both Bluetooth receivers, not transmitters . You also cannot connect dongle on the headphone jack since it will still need to give you the option to select the speakers from a Bluetooth list. Fur further questions please contact us at https://www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html. Have a great day!

Set my 1710s to assigned amp zone 2 to play audio in a separate room. When I use Airplay from my I-phone in main zone and want to hear Airplay in zone 2 simultaneously, I can't find the Airplay option in menu for zone 2. Bluetooth yes, Airplay, no.

Asked by: KeithL
Zone 2 is strictly for analog audio sources. Airplay uses digital signal and this will not allow you to play on your zone 2 speakers. Only one of the AVR&rsquo;s internal sources (iPod, USB, vTuner, Network, AirPlay, DLNA DMR) can be active at a time across both zones. For example, if you are listening to vTuner as the source in Zone 1 and switch the source in Zone 2 to USB, it will switch the source in Zone 1 to USB(and vice versa). To listen to different sources in Zone 1 and Zone 2 at the same time, at least one source must be one of the AVR&rsquo;s configurable external sources (Cable/Sat, Disc, STB or TV) that is connected to one of the AVR&rsquo;s analog audio inputs, or one of the AVR&rsquo;s terrestrial radio sources (FM or AM). Furthermore, if you want to play 1 source to both zones, you should set the zone 2 speakers back to surround sound speakers. Then, set the surround mode to 7 channel stereo. This will allow you to output sound to all of the speaker.
