      Great Sound, Beautiful Design

      The Harman/Kardon Aura, is one of the best wireless speakers available today. Priced at a reasonable $400, it is neither horrendously overpriced nor what would The Harman/Kardon Aura, is one of the best wireless speakers available today. Priced at a reasonable $400, it is neither horrendously overpriced nor what would be considered cheap. Its size is about the same as the box for a small~medium coffee-making machine. However, don't let its small footprint fool you. Its size belies the sound it produces, easily filling my 20x12 foot bedroom with beautiful crisp omnidirectional sound. With treble that does not roll off too much at highest frequencies, smooth natural mids, and punchy but not boomy bass, the Aura is a solid performer at any price point. At high levels there is no distortion, although I hesitate to really dial up the volume past ~60-70% since the sound becomes unnecessarily loud and unhealthy for your ears. It has a easily tunable bass boost with the HK Remote app from the App Store as well as small-step volume control. Connectivity features include Bluetooth apt-x and Airplay as well as DLNA and a 3.5mm auxiliary input to connect your Macbook's headphone out. Listening at low volumes is equally fun as at high levels, as the sound is crystal clear and not muffled even at 20% or less. Once set up, the Airplay connection is quite good and I have yet to experience any audio lag or dropouts. The Bluetooth input is equally good. Lastly, I would like to mention the design. It is reminiscent of the HK iSub from the iconic HK Soundsticks, though obviously the build quality is a step up. It has a premium cloth-covered grill, glass cover and sound tube and LED lighting to indicate operational/volume status. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Aura to anyone in the market for an Airplay speaker that is both well designed and capable of reproducing great sound.

      Ultimate Speaker for all occasions!

      This HK Aura will serious make you rethink about all of your speakers that you ever have in your possession! the 360 omnidirectional speakers truly live up to w This HK Aura will serious make you rethink about all of your speakers that you ever have in your possession! the 360 omnidirectional speakers truly live up to what it says. Don't worry the bass isn't a loser at all...you can download the Harman Kardon App to adjust the bass as you wish and everything will be up to you to play. With the only speakers that I know now that carries both Bluetooth and AirPlay in the same device, I personally think this is the speaker to go for...no matter where you place it, the sound is perfect wherever it is placed...love it so much that I'm planning on buying extra ones around the house so that I can link it all up together!

The mid and treble ranges are well-defined and the bass range is crisp and clear, even, surprisingly, at low volumes. Musical styles from classical to singer/songwriter to Nine Inch Nails all sound great, especially for such a small system. Streaming music from iTunes to the Aura plus an Airport Express is seamless, with no noticeable delay between the receiver (hooked up to the Airport) in one room and the Aura in another.

      power cord is long

      I've owned HK's Soundsticks before so knew what to expect in terms of size and design. Was pleasantly surprised because the AC cable was long. I only used Bluet I've owned HK's Soundsticks before so knew what to expect in terms of size and design. Was pleasantly surprised because the AC cable was long. I only used Bluetooth to pair but works well with multiple devices. Haven't tried the other protocols. We like the loudness - adequate for a room where we were using Sonos Playbar. We hate the Playbar's app so wanted a simple Bluetooth speakers.
