AVR 1710S is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Power and Clarity Purchased receiver to replace a Denon 5.2 receiver that worked very well and rated at 70 watts per channel continuous power. Chose the Harmon Kardon for because of the higher 100 watt per channel rating. Wasn't expecting a huge difference but an extra 30 watts per channel has made a tremendous night and day quality difference. Very impressive performance with outstanding sound quality. Reciever also shines very well with 2 channel stereo music material, which is rare with surround sound receivers. Currently running JBL Studio 270 floor speakers, JBL 520-C center channel and JBL Arena 170 speakers as rear channel effect speakers. Overall high dynamic range and very lifelike sound for movies and music. Very satisfied with the Harmon/ Kardon Recievers performance a lot of muscle and quality in the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and sound Just set this up with the JBL Stage Series at 7.2 with the JBL Studio Sub 260(s). For music it's great, for movies.......OH my..my neighbors will be able to tell when I'm watching Avengers Endgame this system is so intense. The distortion is pretty low even when turning as close to all the way up.I love it.

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.

The power consumption on this is rated at 510 w max, is this correct? A light fully digital power supply should not be using near this much power.

Asked by: TS122
The 510W rating is Maximum. This means that if you were to run all seven speakers at once, at full volume (cranked all the way up), the receiver would consumer 510W of electricity. No one does this, and so it is unlikely you would every consume this much electricity, but this is how the rating is determined.

The spec sheet and the ads indicate that all HDMI ports are HDMI 2.0. Yet, the user manual clearly says that the port are hdmi 1.4. Which one is it?

Asked by: Lulu
The AVR1710S only does HDCP 1.4. That's why it only provides 4K @ 30Hz and 1080p content. The AVR 1710S does not support HDCP 2.2 for 4K @ 60Hz and 2160p content. As an alternative, you may plug the source directly to your TV and just have the audio signal pass through the TV and into the AVR.

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!
