The Harman Kardon® AVR 1610S gives you a simple way to connect to everything you love. This 425-watt, 5.1-channel, networked audio/video receiver is loaded with options that let you access your media. It features five 3D-ready HDMI® 2.0 inputs, including one compatible with MHL, so you’ll have more than enough ways to access content on your HD cable box, Blu-ray™ player, MHL-equipped portable devices.

Regarding sound, the AVR 1610S features our exclusive Natural Sound Processing (NSP), which creates a rich, enveloping sound from any source – particularly with two-channel streaming content. And to get the very best sound based on your speakers and listening environment, its new EZSet/EQ™ III process automatically calibrates the system. And with HARMAN GreenEdge™ technology, the AVR 1610S Sis environmentally friendly, too.
Product Features:
  • Five 85-watt-per-channel amplifiers with high-performance digital power supply
    The AVR 1610S high-performance audio/video receiver pumps out 85 watts per channel to power a full five-channel, networked surround-sound system. It can also connect to a powered subwoofer to provide enhanced low-frequency performance for all your entertainment. While the amplifiers retain the time-tested Harman Kardon® high-current capacity (HCC) ultrawide-bandwidth design to ensure the most accurate, dynamic sound with enhanced clarity and realism – even at the highest listening levels, a digitally based power supply gives the amplifiers all the wattage they need without the weight of traditional power-supply designs and their heavy transformers. The net result is a great-sounding AVR in a small form that is friendly to the environment.

You can connect an Apple device, such as an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, directly to the front-panel USB jack and playback without the need for an external adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sound Solution The 1610S connected to the HKTS 30 surround sound system is the perfect solution to our problem of creating music and media sound that stimulates or soothes and relaxes in a 1200 sf great room with a soaring 26 ft. ceiling. I appreciate HK 's technical guidance in selecting a sound system perfect for our home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good first time receiver I have used this receiver about 2 weeks and it has been working great ever since. I wish there were more watts per channel, considering that this unit goes for $400, but it gets the job done. I am using 2 Polkaudio bookshelf speakers and a Polkaudio subwoofer as well, and they sound crystal clear. This unit could use more input connections, there is only 1 optical audio input and 2 sets of rca inputs. I would have expected more for the price. This is a good starter receiver, but you may want to consider a different model depending on your input needs.

I have bought Harman Kardon HKTS 20 5.1 speakers. Please advise a receiver which would support iPhone or smart phones connectivity wireless (WiFi or Bluetooth etc) to receiver to play music.

Asked by: Harry_O
For these speakers I would recommend the AVR 1710S which drives 100W per channel @ 6/8 ohms while the HKTS 20 can handle 120W at 8 ohms, You can also connect your phone to the AVR via bluetooth so you can listen to your playlist on your phone.

Why none of those spectacular receiver do not have HD Radio tuner? This is terrible mistake!

Asked by: Marek K
Unfortunately, with the line of receivers that we have, an HD radio tuner is just not part of the design right now. However, as an alternative, you can use a source that does have an HD radio tuner.
