This review is from: Harman Kardon AVR 1510 5.1 Channel Networked AV Receiver
no auotmatic calibration
limited network options
This is turning out to be one of the most difficult reviews to write. I like the 1510, but at the same time, I would have trouble recomending it for the MSRP. It seems to me that at $300, it is overpiced. But, what you do get will help you speakers sound quite nice.
My need was for a secondary setup in my home office. I found it open box locally for almost half of the listed price. And for that, I think it is a steal.
The inputs on the back seem rather sparce, but 4 HDMI along with a couple analog and toslink should be sufficiant for most needs. If you are wanting component... you will have to look elsewhere.
It is network enabled. You get vTuner, and DLNA. But thats it as far as that goes. For Pandora or any other type of Radio app, you will have to connect another device. Also, you will need to be close to a router or modem. I do not know of a wifi option for the 1510.
To sum it up,
What is there is a nice little package. For the money, you WILL find other brands that offer more features. Wether they sound better, well..
As always, that is subjective.
-If this unit was selling for $235. I would have given it 5eggs.
