CES 2020 – LAS VEGAS, NV – JANUARY 6, 2020 – Following the Harman Kardon Citation Series announcement last year, the brand has expanded its wireless speaker series with additional form factors for every room and living space. Outfitted with Harman Kardon’s beautiful sound, The Citation Series continues to combine an innovative acoustic design, while delivering remarkable audio quality with cutting edge technology.
The new line-up includes the portable Citation 200 speaker designed with a charging base, IPX4 splash-proof protection, and built-in rechargeable battery with 8 hours of playtime, as well as the Citation Oasis. The Oasis is a multipurpose compact speaker with a built-in alarm clock, wireless phone charging capabilities and music streaming. Users can also enjoy its sleep mode option that automatically turns off Wi-Fi during sleep hours.
Additionally, the Citation Multibeam™ 700 joins the family as the newest compact soundbar with a color LCD display, MultiBeam™ technology and seven speaker drivers for immersive surround sound. The latest soundbar can also be paired with the Citation Sub S, a compact, wireless subwoofer that delivers best-in-class bass. Powered by WiSA technology, these two devices together with Citation Surround and or Tower speakers, deliver a low latency, wireless HD home theatre experience.
The new additions continue to flaunt an unmatched level of sophistication, featuring the brand’s signature industrial design, accented with thoughtful elements. The beloved dirt-repellant and flame-retardant wool fabric by Kvadrat, a European leader in acoustic textiles, covers the speakers, while new stylish colors add to the elegance and sophistication.
All new speakers in the Citation Series deliver a dynamic listening experience, with options to use individually or build a powerful 5.1-channel surround sound system. With the Google Assistant built-in, users can control the whole series using their voice by simply saying “Hey Google” followed by the command. This function makes it easy to set an alarm, generate to-do lists, check on the timing of a favorite television show, control other smart home devices and more. Commands like “Hey Google, play some jazz music” or “Hey Google, dim the lights” perfectly regulate the ambiance in any room of the home.
“The Harman Kardon Citation Series has been an absolute success, completely transforming our customers in-home listening experience,” said Dave Rogers, President, Lifestyle Audio Division at HARMAN. “The new line continues to boast features like voice control and multi-room audio, in addition to premium design, smart features and ease of use. With speakers like the Oasis and a MultiBeam™ soundbar, the Citation Series has something for everyone.”
With the addition of Chromecast and Apple AirPlay capabilities, music lovers can access hundreds of audio streaming services in HD quality. Once connected on the same Wi-Fi network as Citation, tap the AirPlay or Chromecast icon on any smartphone or tablet and music will play on the Citation speakers.
The full Harman Kardon Citation line-up consists of various options to meet every listening need, including multiple speaker options, soundbars, powered subwoofers, tower speakers and a compact speaker with wireless charging capabilities. Additionally, the Citation ONE MKII features Apple Airplay and is available in Dusty Pink, Royal Blue, Black and Grey for $229.95. The Citation ONE Duo is a new offering which includes two Citation ONE MKII speakers for $349.95. The new additions to the Citation Series will be available Spring 2020 at harmankardon.com.
