Product Information

  • Towers of towering bass: Each of these floor standing speakers come with 200 watts of amplification, one 25mm tweeter, two 4” woofer and one 8” subwoofer. Harman Kardon has gone all out on compressing an impressive quantity of ingredients into these smart speakers to produce a sophisticated level of sound. If you're worried about unstable bass, the frequency of the bass is very well controlled.
  • Decor with a Dynamic Duo: The Harman Kardon Citation Towers’ design will definitely be a powerful presence in your home. At almost 46" in height, it has a cone-like shape. Unlike the bulky active speakers in the market, the Citation Towers have this modern-elegance mixed with minimalist colors. Sitting on the sides of your TV, or on two corners of the living room, these two towers look like a part of your interior decor.
  • Touch screen display for speaker controls: Another feature that shows Harman Kardon’s smart tech integration with speakers is the full-color touchscreen display. It sits on top of the primary speaker, giving you the details to whichever song is currently playing. Settings for song adjustments, speaker connections or voice assistants are all available on this small display. For an audiophile who isn’t accustomed to smartphone or voice control, this is a good way to transition from classic buttons to ‘smart’ tech.
  • Embedded Google Assistant: Yes. Like the other smart speakers of the Citation family, the Citation Towers come with Google Assistant built-in. Now you can control your smart devices with only your voice. So set up a Google Assistant routine like “OK Google, Good Morning!” and listen to the morning news echo in the living room while the coffee machine brews you a fresh cup.
  • Built-in Chromecast: For all those live/acoustic versions of songs that are often hard to find on Spotify, use Chromecast to stream music directly from the site. Additionally, listen to live sport, radio, international news or live events through one of the hundreds of Chromecast-compatible sites.
  • Preset voice commands: If you have a go-to playlist that you play regularly, preset it on your Citation Tower so that it's accessible with just a touch of a button. You can also preset controls for smart devices like turning on the smart lock on your front door.
  • Home theatre surround sound with the Citation Adapter: Add a Citation Adapter to your system to connect the Citation Towers to your TV to get the best of the speakers. Just the two of these speakers are enough to create a home theatre surround sound effect.

The Harman Kardon Citation Towers in action

It’s really amazing to have the effect of surround sound from just one pair of smart speakers like the Citation Towers. With only one wire connection for power, the speakers will stream any music, news or sports via WiFi or Bluetooth. Stream any online radio through Google Chromecast. Connect to the Citation Adapter and set up a smart home theatre system for a great movie-night experience.

Full Wireless Surround Sound

Being one of the larger wireless smart speakers on the market, the Harman Kardon Citation Speakers have high expectations to deliver on. Their goal for sound balance is not simple, but the Citation Towers have managed to execute it in style with clear vocals and controlled bass. Setting up the Google Assistant in the Towers will bring endless smart home connectivity. Tell the smart assistant to add more items to the shopping list, or change plans on your calendar, or heat up your car before you have to leave the house.

With more than 65 years in the music industry, there's no doubt that Harman Kardon is challenging the new companies in the speaker market. Their Citation Series comes with a hefty price tag but also promises superb sound for those looking for finesse with a touch of smart tech comfort. The Citation series is a perfect addition to a home with a range of Google Assistant compatible smart gadgets.
