AVR 1710S is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from fine tune After using it for week I realize this amp offers sooo much I have 4 jbl es80 as towers and 2 es250p subwoofer I'm using the front towers for fronts but backs are surround for high and mids surround back for lows so I'm using bi wiring on the backs and I couldn't be any happier you can adjust the crossover frequency on the amp for each. Speakers front center surround and surround back so you use all channels on the amp. 2 subs out what I needed it lfe makes big diffrence on both subs amazing clarity great job anyone came into the house to listen to the system says never hear so clear sound and of course loud thanks

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing receiver Great receiver. It's so much lighter than my older receivers. The updated technology allows me to stream music from my phone wirelessly. The sound it produces is amazing. Awesome receiver!!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it !!!! Replaced a HK receiver I bought in 1994 (still looks and sounds new). My 1st actual avr receiver and it sounds great. Matched with HKTS16 speakers and sounds great. Just bought a 2nd set of same speakers while on sale to complete a 7.2 system

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love this receiver but one major issue. I have had this receiver for a few years now, and it has been great. The only issue I am having now is that when I decided to connect my Bravia TV to the receiver via ARC HDMI cable, the TV will intermittently switch over to TV speakers and not audio speakers upon turning on the TV and receiver. I had it fixed a couple times then again it will mess up. My guess is there is a "handshake" issue and it happens about every 3rd time I turn the TV and receiver on. I have had tech support on the phone many times, and there appears to be no fix. It could possibly be the TV not being very compatible with the 1710.. I'm not sure. When it works correctly, it sounds amazing.

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!
