Audio beauty that must be seen as well as heard. It's part art. It's part science. It's all speaker.
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2014 -- CES 2014 - HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, marries contemporary sculpture with state-of-the-art hi-fidelity sound reproduction in the new all-in-one Harman Kardon® Aura™ wireless home audio system.
"The Harman Kardon Aura is for people who take pleasure in music and art," said Michael Mauser, president, Lifestyle Division, HARMAN. "We've made a unique, state-of-the-wireless-art sound system that looks as good as it sounds."
You've never seen anything quite like the Harman Kardon Aura. Clearly visible and illuminated by LEDs under its transparent dome-shaped wave guide is a turbo-sculpted subwoofer enclosure. Six 1.5" mid/high-range drivers work together with the 4.5" subwoofer to deliver a full range of perfectly-blended, omni-directional sound. Harman Kardon custom DSP technology sculpts room-filling audio staging.
Sound reproduction is only half of the story. The Harman Kardon Aura is as smart as it is beautiful. Built-in Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay® and DLNA audio streaming ensure the Harman Kardon Aura is compatible with any wireless media device, including laptops, MP3 players, mobile smartphones and tablets. Bluetooth setup is as easy as pressing a button.
Download the Harman Kardon Remote app for your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone to stream your music collection from anywhere on your network to a Harman Kardon speaker in any room of the house. The app also simplifies product setup and gives you control of product specific features for full wireless control.
