Even though it’s several years old, the Harman Kardon AVR 1610S is still a solid, entry-level AV receiver for anybody looking to build out a home theater system. It’s a 425-watt receiver that can support up to 5.1 channels. It has a number USB ports, so you can directly connect an external hard drive, set-top cable box or smartphone. It has built-in Bluetooth and supports Spotify Connect, making it easy to stream music, too. Lastly, with its bespoke design and illuminated volume knob, it’s got way more personality than other entry-level receivers in this price range.
For clarity, the Harman Kardon AVR 1610S is the newer model to Harman Kardon’s AVR 1610 — no “S” — which lacks Spotify connect and as many HDMI 2.0 ports.
The Harman Kardon AVR 1610S is available on the company’s website for $400 (here), however you can get it for $249 on Amazon (here). Today on eBay you can get an extra chunk of change off — the Harman Kardon AVR 1610S (new!) is going for just $175 (here).
