The Harman Kardon Citation series delivers a dynamic listening experience all around the home, with options to use the speakers individually or to build a powerful 5.1-channel surround sound system. The system’s multi-room capabilities allow for the control of amazing sound in any room. Songs can be played from one music source, or different music can be heard in different rooms.
Harman Kardon caters to today’s discerning audio consumers, who are seeking sophisticated design and innovative technology that seamlessly blends with their daily lives. When it comes to a multi-room speaker system that means: ease of use, form factors for every room in the home, superior sound, and access to the latest technologies and streaming services.
For more than 60 years, Harman Kardon has been the leading audio engineering and design expert, captivating ears and hearts throughout generations, and the Harman Kardon Citation Series represents its latest feat. Combining an innovative acoustic design delivering remarkable audio quality with cutting-edge technologies—including Google Assistant, a high-resolution LCD touch screen and Chromecast built-in – Citation represents the next generation of home speakers.
From a design perspective, the sophistication shown in the Harman Kardon Citation series is unmatched. The speakers feature the brand’s signature industrial design accented with thoughtful elements, including elegant aluminum detailing. Bringing the whole refined and sleek look together is the Winter Grey or Classic Black wool fabric by Kvadrat, a European leader in acoustic textiles, which is dirt repellant and flame retardant. This new design marries Harman Kardon’s expertise in sound engineering and technology with the style and sleekness of Kvadrat.
To round out the incredible audio performance and extraordinary design, Citation also features built-in Google Assistant. Streaming the newest or most popular music is now quick and efficient with the combination of Google’s intelligent voice-activation. Smart voice control also makes tackling tasks as simple as saying “Hey Google,” to creating calendar reminders, generate to-do lists, get the latest forecast, control smart home devices and more. Commands like “Hey Google, play some jazz” or “Hey Google, dim the lights,” perfectly regulates the ambiance in any room of the home.
“Consumers increasingly look to their home entertainment systems to do more than just play music,” says Michael Mauser, President of Lifestyle Audio at Harman. “While features like voice control and multi-room streaming are becoming standard, the Harman Kardon Citation Series is anything but. The pairing of our unprecedented audio legacy and premium design with smart features and ease of use gives Citation the opportunity to truly transform the listening experience.”
Additionally, Harman Kardon Citation has Chromecast built-in, allowing over 300 audio and video streaming services to be easily accessed in HD quality. Once connected on the same Wi-Fi network as Citation, a smartphone, tablet or laptop can “cast” the latest chart-topping release or playlist from Chromecast-compatible apps.
The Citation lineup consists of various options to meet every listening need, including multiple countertop speaker options, a soundbar, powered subwoofer and tower speaker.
