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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loaded with Features, Fantastic Sound Quality Got Home from work today and found this on my front porch set up was a breeze took all but 20 minutes and then spent the next hour or so tweaking very easy to learn basics no need for manual maybe later this weekend when I configure it on my network but for now was eager to get it up and running so I could relax with some music (for now I've been streaming progressive rock (Emerson Lake & Palmer and ...) From an iPhone through a Klipsch 5.1 Speaker setup via bluetooth using the Surround Neo:6 for music setting on the receiver and I can't tell you how pleased I am with the Sound reproduction I'm hearing just out of the box with a little manual tweaking very impressive and can't wait to spend the time this weekend configuring the network, set up AirPlay and calibrating the room to get the full potential out of this receiver. A definite Best Choice for the technology packed full featured little powerhouse this is and what makes it is the very reasonable cost to feature to quality ratio.

Can I set this up to playback 3.1 with my pair of JBL ES80 floorstanders bi- amped? I have a JBL center speaker I would like to add but &nbsp;My living room is very small.

Asked by: JackAldrich
Yes, the AVR 1710S is capable of such set-up. On Surround Mode, select &quot;5 CH Stereo&quot; which ensures that the surround channels outputs audio. This allows you to use these channels to bi-amp your ES80 floor-standing speakers.

Hi! Is it going to receive HDR10 support (rec.2020 10 bit color space)? It is definitely needs to be done. As an alternative I am using ARC now. And I don`t like it at all, cause ARC sends only basic DTS or DD (HD-MA or TRUE-HD unsupported).

Hi, is there a firmware update planned to add Dolby Atmos support? And a second question, I can't wake the receiver up through Airplay, is that normal or not???

Asked by: Petr
Unfortunately, the hardware in the AVR 1710S cannot support Dolby Atmos, so a software update is not going to help make the receiver compatible to it. Regarding the Airplay feature not turning it on, we would like to work with you directly to help you with your issue. Please submit a case request at https://www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

How would I program the AVR 1710S to produce stereo music using just my front two speakers and sub woofer, three speakers total. I believe the instruction manual indicates only two front speakers. I want to listen to CD's

Hi, If I connect AVR1710S to a 230/110v step down transformer &amp; plug it to a 230v power supply, Will have any bad effect on the receiver to it's durability,&nbsp;its functionality &amp; the output sound quality.

Asked by: Osie
Although you can use a step down transformer, the power frequency will be dropped to 50Hz compared to 60Hz (US). This will cause the unit to run a bit hotter and you my experience some humming due to the change in frequency. With that said, I would not recommend using this in another country with different voltage. Please purchase the AVR in the country where you will use it.
