Harman Kardon just announced the Onyx Wireless Speaker, which offers full-range sound in a compact, sculptural enclosure with built-in Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA, and audio AUX-in. Four channels of amplification provide a total of 60 watts rms of power through four matched speakers. Dual aluminum passive radiators and Digital Signal Processing enhance the sound, blending clear highs with warm mid-ranges and rich low frequencies. The Harman Kardon Onyx packs all this great sound technology in a sophisticated, sculptural enclosure with a distinctive shape, an elegant finish, and luxurious appointments, including real leather and a stainless steel handle.
Being able to reproduce great sound is only half the story of a great wireless speaker system. Install the Harman Kardon Remote app on your iPhone, iPod, tablet or smartphone and you’re connected and in control. NFC makes Bluetooth setup as easy as a single tap. Or join your Wi-Fi network with AirPlay for Apple, or DLNA for Windows, Android, and other devices in the Harman Kardon ecosystem. And for devices that demand a wired connection, the Harman Kardon Onyx features a 3.5 mm auxiliary mini-jack and a USB port that simplifies setup and charges your phone or tablet while it plays. The Harman Kardon Onyx represents quality sound married to total ease of use, in an elegant portable enclosure with its own 6-hour rechargeable battery.
