    Does more than wake you up.

    Ben Verlooy | 28 November 2020 | Color: Gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Solid sound
    • Easy and good operation with the google assistant
    • Extensive options
    • A little too much control via the voice assistant
    • Touch controls are a bit close to the wireless charging surface

    A very complete alarm clock for someone who is "in to tech" in 2020. Good sound, easy operation and extensive functions.

    internet clock/charger/smart speaker in one device

    Mattijs | 6 February 2021 | Color: Gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • An internet clock, phone charger and (internet) radio, handy for your bed
    • Integrate with Google home
    • Software is hardly updated and is therefore very behind Google home assistant
    • Buttons awkwardly close to the loading area
    • Sound color not adjustable
    • Can almost only be operated via voice commands

    Reasonable but HK completely misses the mark with the limited app support, for this price that should really be in order and it is not

    Not useful as a clock radio

    Soetew | 30 October 2020 | Color: Gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • DAB radio
    • Google Assistant
    • Design
    • Quality
    • Alarm can only be set by voice
    • No separate app to control the device, Google Home is too limited
    • Price

    Very nice design and good quality. It really is a pearl on your nightstand. The fact that the clock radio is Wi-Fi connected and has Google Assistant makes this device multifunctional and identical to any Google Smartspeaker, but focused on alarm function. And that's where this device leaves it. It's just a smart speaker with a clock display and a snooze button. The alarm functions can only be controlled by voice and that is downright annoying. You have no idea which radio station is the alarm clock and how loud the sound is. Works great if you have to set an alarm once, but if you get up at varying times including your partner every day, setting is not easy. Overall pretty happy, but I think the Lenovo Smartclock is a better option if your priority is a clock radio.

    Nice solid device with a good sound.
    • Good sound
    • Charging mobile
    • Sensitive keys
    • Set alarm clock by voice

    Because I want to be able to listen to music well and easily everywhere in the house, I would like to have a good music source in my bedroom.
    The Harman/Kardon Citation Oasis comes in a small box where the clock radio is well protected. Included are two power cords, one antenna cord, brief instructions for use in different languages (not in Dutch), an explanation of how to connect with the Google Home App (also not in Dutch) and an invitation to sign up for the newsletter. There are several Harman/Kardon products within the same series and they can be connected to each other.
    The clock radio is simple but neatly designed. It feels heavy and solid with a typical “cheek box fabric” finished all around. Most control buttons have a flat finish with the exception of the "snoze button" which can be felt. This is useful if you want to snooze your alarm by instinct. The keys are very sensitive. When you take your mobile off the charger, you quickly touch a button and your radio is suddenly on. In the middle of the top, a space has been kept free for wireless charging of the mobile. I have the gray version on my nightstand. This is a nice neutral color. The alarm clock is also available in black.
    Installing the alarm clock is not complicated, but you do have to walk patiently through the Google Home App. Step by step I succeeded within 5 minutes. Then the alarm clock is immediately ready for use. The time is automatically set and you can stream directly from the music app of your choice. Via Spotify I can play my favorite music (stand alone) via voice control.
    I find it more difficult to set the DAB tuner. I have connected the antenna, but so far have not really been able to create a good reception. It's my first experience with DAB so maybe I'll discover an opportunity to get this done.
    I set my alarm clock via voice control. Then I wish Google good night and the home assistant asks me what time the alarm can be set. Very handy! Strange I found in the beginning that the one morning the "alarm signal" went off and the other morning the radio was playing. Now I know that this can be set using the alarm button on the left.
    The sound of the alarm clock is good. Not so good that you can fill a room with it, but for the average bedroom it gives a full and clear sound. The tones cannot be set individually.
    Since the Citation Oasis DAB has been in my bedroom I wake up with the latest news, I know what the weather is like for that day and my room is filled with music.

    Highly recommended, money double and straight
    • Brightness of the clock can be set very low
    • Alarm clock is a full sound, no shrill tones in the early morning

    Top product, easy to use, good sound for such a clothing thing and great design.

    Super clean sound, but DAB is to cry.
    • wireless
    • Clean sound
    • DAB dramatic

    Reviewing the Citation Oasis for 2 weeks now and I have to say that it is pretty "clean" in terms of sound. The mid and high tones come into their own. Pairing via bluetooth with the TV is seamless and with this model there is fortunately no delay in the sound, which does occur with the other Citation models.
    The Google assistant works well with this model and pairing it in a group with another Citation speaker is sublime. The sound is that much fuller.
    What really disappoints me is the range of the radio stations via DAB. That's downright dramatic and a major annoyance at the moment. The Citation Oasis is a newly glorified clock radio, but playing radio stations is not easy. There are certainly some areas for improvement at Harman Kardon. Wireless charging works fine.
    "Hanging" in the WiFi network is a piece of cake.

    All in all, a fantastic device if you want to use it as a wireless charger and stream online services such as Spy. But if you are looking for a device to enjoy optimally mainly for DAB reception, then I would advise you to look further.

    super alarm clock
    • design
    • Sound
    • DAB+
    • Google Assistant
    • Cord is short

    The Google assistant ensures that you can set the alarm using voice control. Hey Google, set the alarm for 6 a.m. and it's up. The wireless charging module is also ideal. You no longer have to plug in the phone. I really like it on my nightstand. Before I go to sleep I turn on my Spotify and I indicate that after an hour the music should mute and after an hour the timer ensures that the music goes off. The DAB channels ensure that the radio is also of super quality. The sound is also really good.
    The design of the Harman Kardon Citation Oasis is also very nice. So in addition to the functionality, it is also a beautiful device in the bedroom. The Harman Kardon Citation Oasis fully meets my expectation, it is an ideal device in the bedroom for falling asleep and waking up.
    Nice functionality is also that you can adjust the light of the time indication, so the bedroom can remain dark. Only drawback, the cord of the alarm clock could have been a little longer, it is now 1.5 meters. This can of course be solved by an extension cord.

    Nice thing with good sound
    • Quick installation
    • Convenient operation
    • Great sound
    • Google Assistant sometimes doesn't get it

    Although we had the Citation Oasis in mind as a clock radio, it is now downstairs in the living room. After receiving the package, we immediately placed and installed the Citation Oasis there. The connection to the WiFi network went so quickly via Google Home that we left it there. And so the device became part of the daily routine. Via voice commands you can quickly play radio stations or songs via Tunein and Spotify. What is striking is that streaming is quickly chosen instead of playing radio stations via DAB. The sound quality is fine, better than that of other clock radios, but not comparable to more expensive products from the Harman Kardon series. While working at home, the Citation Oasis also works as a wireless charger for the smartphones. Ideal for a quick charge.
    The device looks beautiful – after all, the eye also wants something. It has a handy display with a limited number of buttons. You hardly use it, because you can operate everything via voice control. An improvement point is the quality of the Google Assistant. Sometimes he just doesn't get it.
