Las Vegas – Harman Kardon launched its first tabletop speaker that uses Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay, DLNA, and Wi-Fi to stream music from any mobile device.
The Aura Wireless Omnidirectional Home Audio System, retailing for a suggested $399, can also be used with a Harman Kardon Remote app for iOS and Android mobile devices to stream music stored anywhere on a home network to an Aura speaker anywhere in the house, the company said.
The speaker features an LED-illuminated transparent dome with woofer port that fires up. Six 1.5-inch mid/high drivers work with a 4.5-inch woofer in the metal base to deliver omnidirectional sound enhanced by Harman Kardon DSP technology.
The speaker features auxiliary and optical digital inputs and a frequency response of 50Hz to 20 kHz.
