The smaller design means that less fuel is used in transportation, with the end result being a lower carbon footprint.

Bluetooth technology and DLNA 1.5 compliance
The AVR 1610 can stream audio from virtually any portable device. You can connect and charge Apple devices such as an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch directly to the front-panel USB jack and play back without the need for an external adapter.

The AVR is also DLNA 1.5 compliant, which gives you more options for delivering content over your home network.

Built-in vTuner (Internet radio) streaming
The AVR 1610 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.

Five 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.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsPerformance is really good.

Pros: Solid receiver with strong performance.
Setup is easy
Price, features.

Cons: Remote control could have been better, especially large Audio controls and Power buttons.
Manual could have been little bit detailed on setting different ways of components.
Bluetooth audio performance was too low.

Other Thoughts: Yes, I would recommend.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but low power

Pros: I have several AVR's and this 1610 is the less expensive...and surprisingly has some of the best features for basic home use. Light, quick and easy to setup, does most things you want to do.

Cons: The two weak spots with the 1610 is lack of power if you really want "boom" and the less than ideal options and information you have when setting up the speakers. Of course it is 100's less so it isn't going to give you top of the line adjustments.

3 out of 5 eggsInterface is difficult.

Pros: It will do what you need.

It's physically light.

You CAN dim the glowing dial.

The automatic speaker setup worked well.

Sounded great.

Cons: The interface does not meet you half way. It's not intuitive.

It doesn't have Wi-Fi.

Buttons on the remote are all identical in size and shape, and volume controls aren't on a corner.

The phone app is a little better, but can't be used at all without the wired network connection.

Would you like to put a custom name on an input? Choose the first letter by pressing up (or down), one letter at a time per press, through all the capitals, then lowercase, then numbers... Ever enter a high score on an 80's arcade game? Like that. Well, more like Asteroids, really. If you hold down the button, it goes a little faster.

Could not figure out how to store a radio station in memory without the manual.

The buttons on the front feel cheap, are hard to tell from the spacers, are hard to find in dim light, and I'm not sure what they all do.

Other Thoughts: We are too far into the information revolution for ANY device to have a user interface as bad as this reciever's.

You have to run cat5 to the reciever, so plan ahead for that.

If you have time to invest, I think it's fine.

Planned to use it on my main TV, but ended up demoting it to a back room. Interface was too hard for my wife.
