High-performance audio/video receiver that boasts multiple wireless connectivity options, six HDMI inputs and 700 watts of beautiful sound. Power, performance and more connectivity options than you’ll ever need: Introducing the Harman Kardon® networked AVR 171S, the answer to any entertainment enthusiast’s hunger for performance and versatility. It’s got muscle: up to 700 watts (100 watts per channel). Its 7.2-channel A/V receiver is equipped with HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple AirPlay, vTuner™ Internet radio and Spotify Connect, giving you multiple options for streaming audio.

While the AVR 171’s connectivity alone makes it desirable, its sound really strikes a chord. It’s the first Harman Kardon AVR to feature our exclusive Natural Sound Processing (NSP), which creates a rich, enveloping surround-sound from any source – particularly with two-channel streaming content. And its EzSet/EQ™ III system automatically calibrates the AVR to your speakers and listening environment. The AVR 171S is light, too, thanks to HARMAN GreenEdge™ certification – delivering all the power you need with low environmental impact. For those who want it all, the AVR 171S can’t be matched.
Product Features:
  • Seven 100-watt-per-channel amplifiers with high-performance digital power supply
    The AVR 171S high-performance audio/video receiver pumps out 100 watts per channel to power a full seven-channel surround-sound system. It can also connect to two powered subwoofers to provide enhanced low-frequency performance for all your entertainment. While the amplifier retains the time-tested, high-current-capacity (HCC), ultrawide-bandwidth Harman Kardon 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 muscle 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 factor that’s friendly to the environment.
  • Apple AirPlay, Bluetooth and Spotify Connect
    The AVR 171S can stream audio from virtually any portable device. For Apple devices, such as computers and the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, you can stream using the receiver’s built-in AirPlay technology. (AirPlay, vTuner and Spotify Connect connections require a wired connection to a broadband network.) For other tablets, smartphones and laptops, you can take advantage of the AVR 171S’ integrated HARMAN TrueStream Bluetooth technology. A USB port is included on the front of the AVR so you can connect devices directly without an external adapter or a wireless connection. The AVR also features Spotify Connect, which allows you to stream music directly from your Spotify premium account on your phone, tablet or computer.
  • HARMAN TrueStream technology
    The HARMAN TrueStream guarantee ensures the best possible listening experience when you stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. HARMAN TrueStream tech selects the most current, most advanced wireless option to ensure the highest-quality sound, no matter what application or source device you use.
  • Six 3D-ready HDMI inputs, including one with MHL
    Six HDMI inputs with 3D and 30/36-bit Deep Color deliver high-definition digital video at resolutions up to 1080p with full-fidelity audio through a single cable. There is no loss of video or audio quality because of format conversion, just full-impact Hollywood excitement as its creators meant you to experience it. And with the AVR’s MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link), you can deliver high-definition audio/video content from your camera, phone, tablet or Roku Streaming Stick dongle directly to your HDTV via the AVR 171S’ MHL connection.
  • Dual subwoofer outputs
    Is your listening room so large that you need two subwoofers to deliver the bass that you desire? That’s not a problem with the AVR 171S, thanks to dual subwoofer outputs that give your system a big-time boost in low-frequency clarity and realism when needed.
  • Multiroom system with audio output and assignable amplifier
    Control the audio in separate rooms with a single receiver. Thanks to the AVR 171S’ assignable amplifiers, you can power the audio in a second room without adding additional components. That means you can watch sports in one room while you play the soothing sounds of classical music in another.

AVR 171S is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guter Klang, keine DSP! Alles in allem top..**** Sound ist sehr klangvoll, aber leider kaum eigene Effekte! Mir fehlen DSP Effekte seit dem ersten Tag. Warum auch immer geringe Ausgabe an den vorhanden Subwoofer. Airplay Funktion wie bei allen aktuellen AV Receivern mit Abbrüchen und "Eigenem Willen" - Menü Feineinstellungen könnten umfangreicher sein.. Bin schon recht zufrieden hatte mir aber mehr bei dem Preis vorgestellt. Receiver macht in letzter Zeit merkwürdige Fehlfunktionen und schaltet einfach Zone2 ein oder streitet sich heftig mit der TV HDMI ARC Funktion.. Wenn das On Screen Menü jetzt noch umfangreicher wird und das Update die Fehler behebt, bin ich beim fünften Stern, Harman.. Fehler beheben, mehr Support und Updates bitte

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tolles Gerät mit diversen Mängeln Soweit ist das Gerät wirklich toll. Alles nach Anleitung angeschlossen, Lautsprecher Konfiguration durchgeführt. Sehr sehr oft deaktiviert sich der Ton wenn ich zum Beispiel an meinem Sky Receiver einen aufgenommenen Film anschauen will. Das selbe Problem tritt auf wenn ich auf Sky On Demand einen Film anschauen will. erst nach mehrmaligen aus und anschallten bekomme ich eine Tonwiedergabe. Auch kommt aus den Hinteren beiden Surround Lautsprechern kaum ein Ton raus. Alle möglichen Einstellungen durchprobiert. Ganz extrem bei dem Cabel/Sat HDMI Eingang. hatte gehofft das da vielleicht ein Update zur Verfügung steht. Dem leider nicht so ist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PROBLEME COUPURE DE SON VIA HDMI Je déconseille fortement ce produit quand on change de chaîne via hdmi le son se coupe quasiment a chaque fois donc obligé de changer de source sur l'ampli ou éteindre le décodeur j'ai tenu qu'une journée et j'ai renvoyer le produit néanmoins le son reste de qualité et le prix attractif peut être un peu trop.Le groupe HARMAN devra revoir ses composants au niveau de la gestion vidéo pour les futurs amplis s'ils veulent survivre face aux concurrents qui propose plus d'options performantes de traitement de son et de gestion vidéo comme cité

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feeling good after one week use Used for last one week and feeling good. Connected to HKTS 16BQ along with another two front speakers and sounds good. OSD & remote need to be improvised and they need to compete with other brands by adding more features. Installation of stand was a lil tough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solider Receiver mit Schwächen Ich habe mir den AVR171s als Generalüberholt gekauft. Der Receiver kommt zwar nicht in einer Ovp, aber alles an Zubehör wie Anleitungen, Antennen, Fernbedienung ist neu. Der Receiver an sich wirkt wie neu... Ohne irgendwelche Gebrauchsspuren. So, die Funktionalität des AVR sind ganz gut. Er klingt gut und der Wechsel zwischen den Codecs klappt reibungslos. Was nicht so schön ist: Er hat nur HDMI 1.4. Damit lässt sich zwar 4k durchschleifen, allerdings nur 30p und maximal 8bit. Beim Aufstellen sollte man beachten, das genügend Freiraum um den AVR herum ist. Die Abwärme im normalen Betrieb ist schon echt enorm. Leider habe ich es jetzt schon ein paar Mal gehabt, das der Receiver beim Einschalten kein Ton von sich gab und im Modus TV Out festhing. Hier half immer nur der Neustart.

Ik ben nu in het bezit van een HK HS100 homecinemaset 5.1 De receiver heeft het nu begeven maar de speakers en bas zijn nog prima. Kan ik de AVR 171S aansluiten op mijn bestaande speakers. Dit zijn er nu 5 i.p.v. 7

Asked by: Jan Jaap
Hi Jan Jaap, Ja, in principe kan je de HKTS7 speakerset gewoon gebruiken met de Harman Kardon AVR171S. Deze receiver heeft echter geen ingebouwde DVD speler, zoals jouw HS100 set, dus deze zal je dan nog los erbij moeten kopen.

100W i multi kanal brukar ni mäta i varje kanal belastad. För denna produkt har ni specat i att enbart en kanal är belastad? Även två kanaler? Vad är det som gäller? Är den klenare än AVR370 samt AVR255 tex? 

Asked by: HA4g3n
ja denna förstärkare är en klenare verson av 270/370 att den är specad i endast 1 kanal har väl att göra med den swithcade nätdelen ofast körs inte alla kanaler på en förstärkare på en o samma gång med detta så får man ut mer av en klenare nätdel. Jag hade gått om så fallet hellre på 270/370 istället för denna

Jeg ønsker at kunne få lyden fra tv igennem AVR 171S, så jeg f.eks kan få lyden når jeg ser en film. Hvordan skal jeg til slutte for at få dette. Hvilke kabler skal bruges og hvilke tilslutninger på AVR 171S skal benyttes.

Asked by: Jeppy Harman
Hej Jeppy. Du skal bruge et high-speed HDMI-kabel mellem receiveren og dit TV, og du skal benytte de bøsninger, som er mærket ARC (audio return channel) på såvel AVR 171S som på dit TV. Dette skulle give dig det resultat, du ønsker. Hvis dit TV ikke har HDMI med ARC, kan du benytte en analog audio-udgang i stedet, og forbinde den til en analog audio-indgang på AVR 171S. Jeg håber, dette hjælper. Ellers kontakt venligst Harman kundeservice.

När jag byter kanal på Tv-boxen fen Telia fiber försvinner ljudet. Kommer tillbaka om byter källa och sedan tillbaka igen. Är inte konsekvent. Borde inte förstärkaren automatiskt byta till lämplig avkodning om den står på Automatisk?

Asked by: Tomas80
Jag har exakt samma problem med min AVR171. Gäller både digitalbox från Telenor/Bredbandsbolaget och även Apple TV.Jag har ställt om dessa till andra värden men inte funnits tex PCM eller vad det heter utan det heter utökat ljudstöd tex på digitalboxen.

Hoe kan ik Spotify afspelen op Zone 2 in de andere Kamer

Asked by: Ruud W
Hi Ruud Helaas is dit niet mogelijk, dit staat ook beschreven in de handleiding. Het is alleen mogelijk om analoge bronnen naar Zone2 te sturen. De enige mogelijkheid om dit te doen, is om de set in te stellen als 7.1 ( dus geen zone 2 ), en de surround modus op multi-channel stereo te zetten. Dit betekent wel dat alle speakers zullen spelen, en niet alleen zone 2. Neem voor meer informatie gerust contact op met onze klantenservice.

Hallo, Van de ene op de andere dag is mijn receiver niet meer zichtbaar in Spotify. Is dit een bekend probleem? Hoe zou ik dit kunnen oplossen? Alvast bedankt.

Asked by: RenevN1985
Hi Rene, Dit zou niet moeten gebeuren, maar wellicht is er iets veranderd in de netwerkinstellingen. Ik wil je aanraden om je router/modem eens te resetten, en wellicht zal je de IP instellingen van de AVR eens moeten nakijken. Neem anders even contact op met onze klantenservice, dan helpen we je verder als dit nodig is
