Harman/Kardon AVR 171 review

 

Harman/Kardon steps into the crowded, competitive midrange receiver market with the AVR 171, a product packed with compelling cutting-edge features and an impressive specification.

Impressive scale, dynamics and organisation; chic design; generous features for the asking price

Sacrifices subtlety for out-and-out thrills; clunky remote; old-school onscreen menus; MHL input on rear

Harman Kardon AVR 171

 

A sleek 7.2-channel AV receiver with Bluetooth, AirPlay and DLNA

Attractive design ; Powerful sound ; Good range of wireless streaming features

Sound could be more detailed ; Rudimentary onscreen menus ; Remote

An impressive AV receiver with snazzy looks, decent network features and a potent performance, but fans of a subtler, more finessed sound might want to look elsewhere.

Harman-Kardon AVR-171

 

Subtler rivals might outclass it, but this lovely-looking receiver delivers a powerhouse performance with music and movies

Explosive, entertaining sound ; Excellent streaming features ; Good with music ; Elegant build and finish ; Control app is nice to use

Rivals dig up more detail and are more immersive ; Slight hard edge to sound ; Remote control’s volume buttons are poorly placed

If it’s a big, muscular sound you want, the Harman’s beefy delivery will keep you entertained (even if we’d like a touch more refinement and detail).
