SKU: HKAVR161S Categories: , , ,

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.



Five 85-watt-per-channel amplifiers with highperformance
digital power supply

The AVR 161S 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 161S 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 161S’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.

More ways to connect

The AVR 161S features vTuner Internet radio to connect
you to a whole world of online audio entertainment. As
soon as it’s out of the box, you can stream over-the-air radio
stations from around the globe as well as stream from a
wide range of Internet-only radio stations. The AVR 161S
also features Spotify Connect, which allows you to stream
music directly from your Spotify premium account on your
phone, tablet or computer.
Five 3D-ready HDMI inputs including one with MHL
Five HDMI 2.0 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.

Front-panel USB port for connection to

compatible Apple products or USB sticks
The AVR 161S gives you multiple options for audio playback
with its front-panel USB port. Simply connect an iPhone,
iPad, iPod or USB stick to play your stored tracks through
your home entertainment system.
MHL connectivity
Whether it’s captured by your camera, phone or tablet, or
streamed from a Roku Streaming Stick dongle, you can
deliver high-definition audio/video content directly to
your HDTV via the AVR 161S’s MHL connection.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding

The AVR 161S delivers high-resolution audio that matches
the digital video quality of Blu-ray Disc™ formats, unlocking
the full potential of movie soundtracks formatted with
Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. 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 161S’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

HARMAN GreenEdge technology

The HARMAN GreenEdge logo assures you that the
AVR 161S design is environmentally friendly without
compromising the premium performance for which
HARMAN products are known. Thanks to an advanced
power supply, the AVR 161S can deliver high-quality audio
in a small, light chassis that uses less metal and plastic.

Compact design

The AVR 161S 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 161S 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 161S 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
