Multi-Driver Design: The Harman/Kardon Onyx wireless speaker system
features two 0.75" tweeters, two 3" woofers, and dual 3.25" passive radiators to
create classic sound with crisp highs and deep lows. The tweeters, woofers, and
one passive radiator is front-firing; the other passive radiator is rear-firing.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Harman/Kardon Onyx supports
Bluetooth A2DP wireless audio streaming. This allows you to stream
stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device (such as your
Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/table, or computer/laptop) to the
Onyx speaker system. You will continue to navigate your music and view
song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled device.
- Truesstream Technology: TrueStream technology is Harman's
guarantee that you will enjoy the best possible listening experience when
you're streaming audio wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Because you have
many options for Bluetooth connectivity, Harman Kardon always use the most
current and most advanced option to ensure the highest-quality sound no
matter what application or source device you use. Harman Kardon Onyx uses
the AAC, aptX and high-bit pool SBC codecs for the best Bluetooth audio from
- SSP + NFC Pairing: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can
easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the H/K Onyx without having to
enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. Android (OS 4.0+)
smartphones that have Near Field Communication (NFC) pair simply by touching
the Android device's NFC tag to the speaker system's NFC tag. For older
Android smartphones with OS 4.0 or lower, download the
NFC Easy Connect app from Google Play to use the head unit's NFC pairing
function. Once paired, the Onyx will automatically re-connect with your
device when in wireless range (up to 33').
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology,
some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or
may not support all features when used with the H/K Onyx.
AirPlay Compatible: AirPlay lets you stream music directly
from your iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad, or from your iTunes library on your PC
or Mac to the Denon Onyx, over your wireless home network connection. By downloading Apple's free
Remote App onto your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad you don't even need to be
in the same room as the Onyx or your computer to play, pause, skip, and stop the
songs in your iTunes music library. To use the AirPlay feature you need a Mac or
Windows-based PC running iTunes (10.1 or later) connected to your wireless home
network. Your iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad must have iOS 4.3 or later installed
and connected to the same wireless home network.
DLNA Certified: The H/K Onyx is DLNA (Digital Living Network
Alliance) certified. This means it's easier for you to access and enjoy digital
music stored on your Windows PC, DLNA server, or DLNA-compliant Android device.
You'll be able to wirelessly stream your stored music library on your compatible
DLNA device to the Onyx speaker. The Onyx supports playback of a variety of
music files via DLNA.
Aux Input: In addition to wireless connectivity, the H/K
Onyx is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any
portable audio player with a headphone output.
USB Charging Port: The Harman Kardon Onyx is capable of recharging the
battery of your mobile device from the speaker's built-in USB (type-A) port. Now
you don't need to carry an extra charger to keep your devices powered up. This
USB port does not support audio playback.

app from the
iTunes App store onto your Apple iOS (5.0+) device or from the
Google Play Store onto your Android (2.2+) device lets you control the Onyx

Previous/Next Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Repeat/Random. To access music
apps, you'll need to exit the H/K Remote app and select your desired music
app on your iOS or Android device.

that provides up to 6 hours of playback time on a single charge. The battery is easily
