This 425-watt, high-performance, 5.1-channel A/V receiver gives you more ways to connect to your favorite music, movies and shows. There are countless ways to access and store your favorite media, from external hard drives to set-top cable boxes to smartphones. But if your home audio/video receiver doesn’t give you options for connecting to those media, it’s borderline useless. The Harman Kardon® AVR 161S 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. It also includes Spotify Connect and HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth® technology so you can stream high-fidelity audio from your mobile devices. Regarding sound, the AVR 161S 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 161S Sis environmentally friendly, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sehr zufrieden Sehr leicht einzurichten, wenn man sich ein paar Seiten der Anleitung durchliest. Es ist kinderleicht die Lautsprecher richtig einzustellen, dank des Mikrofons welches mitgeliefert wird. Mein Smartphone wurde direkt und unkompliziert als Quelle erkannt - Perfekt. Der Receiver wirft einen klasklaren Sound aus den Boxen - ein Traum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Coupure de Son a chaque changement de chaines. Bonjour, que ce soit via une box ou apple TV, le son se coupe a chaque changement de chaines... il faut changer d entrée video et revenir sur celle ci pour que le son revienne. Nous sommes plusieurs a partager ce probleme. Une mise a jour est elle prévue prochainement pour régler ce probleme ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uitstekend geluid Enkele weken geleden binnen gekomen nadat onze vorige het had begeven. Deze bevalt beter dan de vorige, vooral de bluetooth functie is een toevoeging. Installatie was ook vrij eenvoudig Wel jammer dat er geen netwerkkaart in zit voor draadloos internet

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I will never go with Harman again The last and the fatal issue is a low background noise especially when using head phones. I confirmed it in the shop where I brought it to replace or refund. So it is not a matter of a noise power socket at my home. The receiver was still on warranty (and is still until March 28, 2019), however the service center returned it back saying that there are no issues. Harman support also replied me that there is nothing they can do. Not talking about other issues: - when pulling back headphone connector, the device sometimes is kept in headphone mode; - sound from HDMI source disappears sometimes; - the device itself is extremely noisy; - it is extremely hot even at low volume and headphones; - the HR subwoofer in this 5.1 set at some point started to produce background noise also; I had other manufacturer receiver before, and had 0 issues in 5 years. Stay away from Harman. I am going to through my receiver into the garbage, while it is still on warranty. Though it's not that simple in Switzerland neither.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dåligt Ljud? Hej! Jag upplever att det blir väldigt dåligt ljud när jag kör ljudet igenom hdmi. Streama jag däremot ljudet igenom Spotify connect blir det en väldig skillnad på ljudet. Har även provat med Optisk kabel men samma problem!

empfängt der 161 s auch digitale hörfunkprogramme ohne Anschluss von Zusatzgeräten (Antenne, DAB+-Adapter)?

Vielen Dank für die Anfrage. Ohne ein Zusatzgerät ist es nicht möglich DAB+ Radio zu hören. Aber Sie haben die Möglichkeit über den integrierten vTuner Radio zu hören. Wie Sie dafür genau vorgehen, steht im Benutzerhandbuch. Sollten Sie kein Benutzerhandbuch mehr besitzen, dann melden Sie sich einfach beim Kunden-Support: https://de.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html#ns Die Kollegen helfen Ihnen gerne weiter.

In de specificaties mis ik andere ondersteunde audio-codecs dan Dolby en DTS. Kan de receiver óók FLAC aan? MP3 of AAC is waarschijnlijk geen probleem.

Asked by: boototter
Bedankt voor uw vraag. De Harman Kardon AVR 161S ondersteund geen FLAC audio formaat. MP3 of WAV bestanden worden bijvoorbeeld wel ondersteund, maar FLAC is daar niet een van. Desalniettemin is het uiteraard wel mogelijk om deze audio bestanden over Bluetooth of AUX af te spelen op de AVR 161S receiver, maar deze worden geconverteerd voordat deze worden afgespeeld door de receiver. Indien u nog verdere ondersteuning wenst, gelieve dan het Harman Customer Support team te contacteren per telefoon, e-mail of chat voor directe hulp. Zie https://www.harmanaudio.nl/support-contact.html voor meer informatie. Dank u.

I connected a vinyl record player into "analog 1 in" But the volume it is very Low despite being at most I do Not understand how I have to do some volume to make the vinyl record audible thanks

Asked by: Beta 451
Hi, For most record players, you will need a pre-amp to connect between the record player and the analog inputs of an AVR or stereo receiver. These cost around € 20--- at a retail store. This should solve that issue.

Hi, can I connect my pc from nvidia gtx 1070 through HDMI to this box and get the LPCM multichannel 5.1 audio to my surround speakers while passing the video to my TV?

Asked by: BAss666
Hi, Theoretically yes, but with all things computer related, we are not able to support this in any way. There are too many variables when something doesn't work as it could, and this would require extensive knowledge about Windows, drivers, hardware etc. for troubleshooting in case needed.
