Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Shhhhhhhh, when the bass drops! Best sound we've ever had...LOVE it...my neighbors, not so much...lol. This sub, blows wind...and a lot of it!! Nice quality...only issue, not fond of the small volume buttons on the remote, otherwise love it, and love I can dim or shut off the backlight on the unit at night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear and Powerful Enough The sound of this AVR is crystal clear and powerful enough despite of the weight and wattage. It can really bring out the minor details in low and high frequencies especially when you use super high end optical cables like Transparent Audio or DH Labs. The only flaw that I identified is actually the power cable is built in and there's no option for me to buy an audiophile grade power cable from Audioquest or Transparent. The plastic build is also feels cheap that's why I placed it where guests can't touch it or see it with good lighting that will show the cheap plastic textures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought this item recently an simply love the features. The product was very easy to set up and has excellent sound quality and great features. I use Infinity floor standing speakers and they sound great. Both my iPhones (5 & 3GS) works. I am yet to explore other features, but am sure Harman Kardon will not disappoint me on those either. The only issue was I found it a little hard to push the speaker wires (10 AWG) into speaker connectors...., should have used a thinner speaker wire....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 5.1 AVR So far everything is working as planned, including hooking up a turntable. On the con side, the DNLA is only good for audio. HK, this is an AV receiver, not only audio. A big improvement would be the capability of acting as a DLNA server. That way other products could connect to it such as wifi speakers. Since this receiver is capable of software updates, there is the possibility of improvement! Regarding the ability to stream from the app, I haven't been able to accomplish that yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Aesthetic; Fundamentally Flawed The design is nice and attractive. However, there are some major (and unusual) shortcomings. First and foremost: there is no graphic equalizer! My 1984 - vintage receiver can at least adjust the base and treble. Second, the software is extremely buggy. For example: mine will recognize an iPhone but simply will not play it. At certain times, it will not change sources. You have to re-start often. Finally, it has the least user-friendly remote I've seen. Not acceptable for $300.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, old fashioned menu I bought the avr1510 a couple of months ago. I think it looks good and has a great sound. But there are some things I'm less happy about.. The menu is really old fashioned, like the VHS players back in the 80's. When using dlna streaming, scrolling in the menu is frustrating, it's slow and doesn't do what you want it to. So I was hoping for an update from Harman Kardon, but I'm not sure this will ever happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love my Harman Kardon AVR 1510 I disagree...My AVR 1510 does everything I can wish for and more than accommodates my 200 inch, professional quality home theater. It works seamlessly with my xbmc based windows media center. I use one remote to access everything...my Android. This receiver is one of my best tech toys I own and it didn't cost too much either. Thank you Harman Kardon...You exceeded my expectations -Albert

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive This was given to me in exchange for my broken receiver that was still under warranty. However, I was promised it would only take 6 weeks. I was told still waiting for parts to shipped from abroad. The store decided to give me this in exchange for my broken receiver. I must say, I'm totally solved with this.

Via the USB port can FLAC files be played?

Asked by: IMEMY1
As stated on page 5 in the owner's manual... USB port: The USB port can be used to play audio files from an Apple iOS® device connected to the port, and can also be used to play MP3 and WMA audio files from a USB device inserted into the port. Insert the connector or device into the USB port oriented so it fits all the way into the port. You may insert or remove the connector or device at any time – there is no installation or ejection procedure. It cannot support FLAC files.
