One of the most celebrated audio brands in the world also took advantage of Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 to present his latest creation for audiophiles, music lovers and the like. The line of smart speakers Citation, gives Harman Kardon, brings first class sound combined with elegant design and several cards up its sleeve.
The devices, which come in various shapes and configurations, have a very sober design language, with a combination of aluminum and fabric in gray or black; all come with small, high-resolution LCD screens for easy setup. They can be used individually or as part of a system surround 5.1, communicating wirelessly, with the possibility of having speakers even in different environments of the house.
Because Harman Kardon has built Google Assistant into all speakers, users can command music playback or ask questions simply by saying ?Hey, Google?. Soon, devices will also receive support for the AirPlay 2 protocol, so users in the Apple ecosystem can play music or hear the sounds of their iOS devices or Apple TVs.
The line has different prices: the stand-alone Citation One speaker $ 200, the cheapest in the group; at the other end of the spectrum, a pair of tower-type Citation Tower $ 2,500. The devices will hit the market in March.
