AVR 151S is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problème télécommande J'ai acheté ce mois-ci ce modèle d'amplificateur Home Cinéma. Une fois reçu, le son à l'air assez bon (depuis un DVD), branchements très simples mais le branchement en USB en façade avec un iPhone 6S ne fonctionne pas malgré qu'il soit reconnu. Mais le pire est la télécommande très bas de gamme en qualité et surtout qui ne fonctionne quasiment jamais. Donc très difficile de faire les réglages à l'écran. Sans parler de l'environnement écran digne d'MS DOS des années 90. Je trouve cela inadmissible et indigne pour cette marque et l'ampli est presque inutilisable sans la télécommande. Quelle solution ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Klangbild Hab die Anlage jetzt seit 2 Monaten, super sound schnell einzustellen! Obwohl hier geschrieben wird das der Googel chromecast nicht geht, bei mir läuft er ohne Probleme direkt über die Anlage! Ich bediene somit alles über Handy und die Originale Fernbedienung liegt im Schrank!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tolles Design aber irreführensdes Menü Habe mir das Gerät vor 3 Tagen gekauft weil es im Media Markt ein sehr gutes Klangbild abgegeben hat. Leider klappt es mit der Lan-Verbindung nicht das Internetradio in Gang zu bringen. Es funktioniert nicht. Auch steht nicht eindeutig beschrieben wie ich den TV anschließen kann,so dass er beim einschalten des TV auch der AVR mit eingeschaltet wird.Die Quelle TV ist ausschließlich mit der Digital-Audio Einspeisung verknüpft,was eigentlich den Stand vor über zehn Jahren entspricht.Ich hoffe dass ich mich täusche und ich eines besseren belehrt werde :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pactisch en veelzijdig 2 maanden in huis, erg tevreden. De app van HK maakt de receiver makkelijk op afstand te bedienen. Alleen de toon regeling vind ik wat beperkt, ik hou van continu regeling en de Hk 151 gaat van -10 naar + 10 in stappen van 2. De spotify functie is geweldig, staat bijna altijd aan.

Er det muligt at få surround sound via google Chromecast? Og hvordan skal det tilsluttes - skal chromecast tilsluttes TVet eller AVR151S ?

Asked by: Micki Olin
Hej. Din Chromecast skal altid sættes i dit TV, men det er faktisk Google, du skal spørge. Det burde være muligt at få et surround-signal igennem til din AVR fra TV'et, og formaterne kan du se her: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media Hvis du ikke kan få digital surround til at virke, kan du bruge en virtuel surround.

I just bought a AVR151S and it sgreat except the Spotify connection seems slow and audio cuts in and out at times like it has not buffered correctly...I have other internet speakers on the network that I can cast to and the work without lag..help!

Asked by: Jacko686
Hi Jacko, Thank you for your email. Sorry to hear about your recent experience with our product. Please try disconnecting all other network devices, and then try testing again and see if the connection is better now. If not, then try with a new cable and reboot your router. In case you are still experience issues with your AVR 151S then contact our customer service at customer.support@harman.com

ik heb een harman kardon surroundset gekocht voor mijn pc, zonder te weten dat ik een receiver nodig heb ( totaal niet technisch met geluid ). de set die ik heb gekocht is de HKTS 5BK/230, kan ik met deze receiver de set aansluiten op mijn pc?

Asked by: m00stzaan
Hi Ja, je kan de HKTS 5 speakerset aansluiten op de AVR151S. Jouw PC kan je dan ook aansluiten aan de AVR 151S. Mocht jouw PC een digitale uitvoer hebben voor geluid ( optisch / coax ), dan zal dit het beste klinken. Anders is het mogelijk een analoge ingang te gebruiken op de AVR 151S - neem voor meer informatie even contact op met onze klantenservice, dan helpen ze je graag verder

Hi! Is it possible to listen to Spotify Connect while passing a video-signal through HDMI? Everytime I start a song via Spotify Connect it jumps to a black screen with the song-title and artist-name... Best regards, Håkon

Asked by: haak
Hi This is not possible. You can only output one input source at the time. So if your input source is HDMI and that signal needs to go somewhere, you can't have a 2nd input source signal playing at the same time. This would require a 2nd sound and video processor in the AVR ( basically a 2nd AVR ).

Hello. I bought this receiver just now,when I push on the power button (without connecting the speakers yet) the main power led turns to white for a second and then it turn to blinking amber color.

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi I would like to advise to set up the complete system first, make sure the speakers are connected, and you have your TV connected with an HDMI cable. You will then be able to see the menu on the TV and set up the product. If you run into any issues during the initial setup, please contact our Customer Support

Kan ik ook de bose acoustimass 2.1 gebruiken. Nu gaan er twee tweeaderig draden vanuit mijn versterker naar de subwoofer (en de zitten 'melkpakjes' zitten dan weer in andere aansluitingen op de subwoofer). In de gebruiksaanwijzing zie ik maar één draad.

Asked by: perry3456
Hi Deze vraag zal je Bose moeten stellen. Onze AVR's hebben standaard uitgangen voor speakers, en een ( of 2 ) subwoofer kanalen.

Hej! Kan man koppla högtalare som har impedans 3 ohm till denna förstärkare? Har försökt läsa mig till i manualen, men hittar inget. Vad betyder det att den är recertified? Tack för svar!

Asked by: Karehawi
Effekten på denna förstärkare är 75W per kanal och 6/8 ohm. Vi rekommenderar inte att du använder 3ohm högtalare med kaneler som har en effekt på 6/8ohm eftersom detta kan skada AVR. Vi rekommenderar istället att man använder högtalare som klarar denna effekt. Recertified produkter är produkter som har återlämnats till oss av våra återförsäljare. Dessa produkter har noggrant kontrollerats och testats för att uppfylla de höga krav som HARMAN har. En recertified produkt innehåller samma funktioner som en ny modell, och vi levererar samma garanti med dessa produkter som med liknande nya. Det kan finnas några mindre kosmetiska brister, och produkten kan ha ompaketerats, men du kan vara säker på att dessa produkter kommer att fungera perfekt.
