HARMAN product and design teams have pushed the envelope once again receiving two European Imaging and Sound Association Awards (EISA). The winners are the Harman Kardon Citation MultiBeam 700 soundbar and the ARCAM SA30 intelligent amp. With these honors HARMAN’s Consumer Audio Division has earned more than 350 product design awards over the past seven years.
The Harman Kardon Citation MultiBeam 700 was named Best Smart Soundbar 2020/2021 for its exceptional blend of slick design, user-friendly features, and sonic prowess. Its seven-driver array and DSP technology provide refined yet powerful sound while the Google Assistant adds voice integration and wireless flexibility. Its full-color touchscreen interface facilitates EQ adjustment and source selection, and even displays album artwork from Chromecast streams.
The ARCAM SA30 won Best Amplifier 2020/2021 for its elegant but purposeful casework, powerful Class G amplification and vast array of digital technologies. Offering high-resolution audio support and thorough wireless support, it features state-of-the-art DIRAC room correction technology, ensuring that users experience the very best performance the amplifier has to offer, always individually optimised to its surroundings.
These awards affirm HARMAN’s leadership first-in-class, user-centric products that are as enjoyable to use as they are beautiful to behold. HARMAN’s passionate teams of designers and engineers consistently set the bar of excellence higher with each passing year, winning hundreds of accolades and honors that are testament to their talent and hard work.
