AVR 1510S is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 19.
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.

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
Hi, the auto power off feature can be changed so it can actually put the HK AVR 1510s to sleep after a predetermined amount(depends on what cable is being used). You can change it under the Master menu and selecting system setup and changing the Auto Power Off settings to 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.

How long of an HDMI cable from the unit to the TV can be used and will the sound still sink with the TV picture?

Asked by: Notthelatest
Thank you for your question. The length of an HDMI cable does not influence the connection. The only important aspect when it comes to syncing is that the cable is ARC (Audio Return Channel) and that this function is enabled on the TV as well. Should you wish to receive further support, you may contact the Harman Customer Support team by telephone, email or chat in order to receive direct assistance. Please see https://uk.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html#ns for further details.&nbsp; Thank you.
