Introducing the Harman Kardon® AVR 1610S, a powerful and versatile 5.1-channel audio/video receiver designed for those home entertainment enthusiasts who demand great sound and a variety of connectivity options. Equipped with fi ve HDMI® 2.0 inputs, integrated Bluetooth® technology and an MHL input, this high-performance AVR has everything you need and more. Because you have multiple ways to store and access your entertainment, it’s important that your audio/video receiver can deliver them. The Harman Kardon AVR 1610S features fi ve 3D-ready HDMI inputs (including one that’s MHL-compatible), HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth technology, EzSet/EQ™ III calibration and compatibility with vTuner™ Internet radio. With the built-in Spotify Connect feature, you can stream music directly from your Spotify premium account on your phone, tablet or computer. So whether you’re connected via cable or streaming wirelessly, you’ll experience high-fi delity audio from this 425-watt, 5.1-channel, networked audio/video receiver. It’s even lightweight, thanks to HARMAN GreenEdge™ certifi cation; you’ll get all the power you love, in an environmentally friendly form

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.

Bluetooth technology

The AVR 1610S can stream audio from virtually any portable device. 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. For other tablets, smartphones and laptops, you can take advantage of the AVR 1610S’s integrated HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth technology

HARMAN TrueStream technology

The HARMAN TrueStream guarantee ensures the best possible listening experience when you stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. HARMAN TrueStream tech delivers the most current, most advanced wireless option to ensure the highest-quality sound, no matter what application or source device you use

No matter what mode or mood you are in, you’ll always hear audio playback at its finest.

EzSet/EQ III auto-calibration

The new HARMAN EzSet/EQ III auto-calibration process precisely adjusts the AVR 1610S’s volume levels, speaker distance/delay time settings and equalisation to optimise audio performance automatically for your specific speaker system and room conditions. The system features an easyto-follow menu display and includes a plug-in calibration microphone.

HARMAN GreenEdge technology

The HARMAN GreenEdge logo assures you that the AVR 1610S design is environmentally friendly without compromising the premium performance for which HARMAN products are known. Thanks to an advanced power supply, the AVR 1610S can deliver high-quality audio in a small, light chassis that uses less metal and plastic.

Compact design

The AVR 1610S takes the award-winning Harman Kardon look to a new level with a flush volume control and more compact design. Because of the lighter weight made possible by an advanced digital power supply, the unit weighs less without sacrificing performance so that it is the perfect match for the thin glass shelves of today’s open TV/ entertainment furniture.

Colour-coded connectors and binding-post speaker terminals

All connections on the AVR 1610S are colour-coded to simplify hook-up and reduce errors. Colour-coded binding post speaker terminals on all output channels accept pin connectors or bare wire to provide secure links for your speaker cables.

Multidevice, programmable remote control

The AVR 1610S simplifies your life with a programmable infrared (IR) remote control. It works seamlessly with the receiver’s multilingual on-screen display, guiding you through system setup and operation with consummate ease. The multidevice remote can also control your TV, cable boxes, satellite tuners and other playback sources. For further installation flexibility, there is a 12-volt trigger output and a remote IR sensor input
