STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, is proud to introduce a full-range sound system in a compact, sculptural enclosure. The Harman Kardon Onyx Wireless Speaker System is designed with connectivity in mind, with built-in Bluetooth®, AirPlay®, DLNA, and audio AUX-in.
"Listeners today collect, store, and carry their music in so many different ways, using so many different devices," said Michael Mauser, President of HARMAN Lifestyle. "We set out to provide people with a single great sound system that's convenient to use, and able to connect via Bluetooth, AirPlay® for Apple iOS users, DLNA for others, and stereo AUX-in. And do it smoothly and cleanly, without sacrificing sound quality. And then we made it look great."
The Harman Kardon Onyx wireless speaker system delivers uncompromising audio excellence.
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.
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.
