Looks and performance — that's what you get with the Harman Kardon Onyx wireless portable speaker system. The elegantly simple design features a brushed aluminum handle that pivots out to become the Onxy's stand. But it's the sound that counts, and that's where the Onyx delivers.
The brushed aluminum handle swivels to become a stand for the system.
The Onyx has two 3/4" tweeters for detailed highs, and two 3" woofers for clear midrange and bass. Two passive radiators help reinforce the lows — one front-firing, the other rear-firing to ensure solid bass throughout the soundstage. Harman's proprietary digital signal processing ensures accurate, lifelike reproduction of your music.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi®
The system's built-in Bluetooth lets you wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet, or any other Bluetooth-compatible portable. Whether it's stored music, music services like Pandora® or Spotify, or even video and game soundtracks — if you can hear it through your portable, you can stream it via Bluetooth to the Onyx.
The Onyx also has built-in Wi-Fi, and is DLNA-certified. So you can use your DLNA-compatible AndroidT smartphone, tablet, computer, or other component to stream music and audio to the Onyx. And if you own Apple portables, good news. That Wi-Fi connectivity also lets you use Apple AirPlay through your home network.
Apple AirPlay gives you additional options when you use iTunes® on your computer. Just open iTunes, select the Onyx in the AirPlay menu and start streaming music to the system. Use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch® to control the iTunes menu on your computer. From your Apple hand-held device., you can stream stored music, video and game soundtracks, and even online music services like Pandora and Spotify.
You can easily control the Onyx with its touch-sensitive controls. Or use the Harman Kardon's remote app to control the system through your Android or Apple smartphone or tablet. The Onyx's built-in rechargeable battery gives you up to 8 hours of operation. And when its AC adapter is plugged into a wall outlet, you can use the Onyx's USB charging port to keep your portable powered up.
