Pros and cons

According to our soundbar expert
  • With the integrated Google Assistant, you can control the soundbar via voice commands.
  • Add the soundbar to the Harman Kardon multi-room system and stream music throughout the house.
  • You'll have to purchase an HDMI cable yourself to connect the soundbar to the TV.
  • You can't simply connect the soundbar to the Citation One for a 5.0 or 5.1 surround setup, since you need the Citation Towers or Citation Surround for that.

    Great sound from a bar

    Marcel | 19 May 2020 | In the version: Black | No | No accessories | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Sound is very good
    • Spotify Connect and Chromecast
    • HDMI-ARC
    • Orange LEDs on the front
    • No USB connection
    • You can't see from the couch which setting has been made

    I connected the Citation bar via HDMI-ARC and a wired network cable. I use it standalone, so without other devices connected.

    I really like the sound of this soundbar. Netflix sounds like a movie and I also experience the virtual surround sound perfectly in a game. I'm not used to real surround (except in the bios) so I can't compare that well. It is also nice that it is always on, which of course costs extra energy, so you can always stream directly or ask Google a question. As soon as I switch on the TV the sound switches to the bar.

    I don't like the orange LEDs on the front. These light up as soon as the microphone (from google) is muted. However, this is always the case if you play sound via HDMI-ARC (from TV or game console), so those LEDs will light up. Google Assistant does not work, but by pressing the button on the remote control, it can be called up again quickly.

    The display on top of the bar is of course nice, but you can't see what you set when you operate it from the couch. I always have to get up to see which setting I'm changing.

    In terms of connection, I still miss a USB port, but not very much.

    Very nice, especially with expansion!!

    Jonathan ter Horst | 16 January 2020 | In the version: Black | No | No accessories | Automatically translated from Dutch

    Easy connection and good sound, but I do recommend a "subwoofer citation" to everyone for optimal enjoyment.

    Beautiful design and a great sound

    • Easy to connect
    • nice sound
    • Beautiful design
    • google assist

    What a super nice sound is in this. We have purchased the soundbar with the sub. And you can still expand it. The system is a matter of connecting HDMI and power, and then it is ready for use. It couldn't be easier. The design is fantastically beautiful, and distinguishes itself from the others.

    Pricey, but worth the money in the end
    • Fantastic sound
    • Easy installation
    • Very nice design
    • Middle and high tones come out nicely, in balance
    • Bass tones just not enough compared to mid and high
    • Pricey

    Does what it's supposed to do; very nice sound. If you want a very deep and perfectly balanced bass sound, you will have to buy a subwoofer...

    Great quality and easy to use but includes software
    • Sound quality
    • design
    • Connection options
    • Sometimes not responding
    • hdmi arc not working

    The sound quality is quite good. Especially in combination with the subwoofer. It is good in terms of convenience and design. Only the HDMI arc connection does not work in combination with our Samsung TV. And it hangs sometimes, doesn't respond to anything. Turning it on and off helps. And sometimes he doesn't see the optical connection.

    Highly recommended, beautiful design and sound!
    • Easy to connect with the Google Home app.
    • Beautiful design
    • Harman Kardon customer service is also fantastic if you have any questions.
    • Both audio sounds fantastic and watching movies with surround function.
    • handy the multi-room function
    • The sound has minimal adjustment options
    • Surround speaker must be high for a nice effect. if you don't have a closet or something you have to buy expensive supports

    I have already written that in the pros and cons. I am very satisfied with this set!

    Nice soundbar with good sound.

    I had a Sonos playbar but the TV remote didn't work on it. Now I'm over to harman kardon. Wow what a tight sound, I'm all over it. Connected via hdmi arc, but there are many more connection options. I'm about.
