About the Harman Kardon Enchant 800

Big sound from a slim bar

Do you want rich TV sound without sacrificing your style or your living room real estate? Harman Kardon designed the Enchant 800 with you in mind. Its sleek cabinet houses eight cleverly angled drivers — including a pair of side-firing tweeters. These tweeters are horn-loaded for higher efficiency and greater control of the sound dispersion.

Big sound from a slim bar

Do you want rich TV sound without sacrificing your style or your living room real estate? Harman Kardon designed the Enchant 800 with you in mind. Its sleek cabinet houses eight cleverly angled drivers — including a pair of side-firing tweeters. These tweeters are horn-loaded for higher efficiency and greater control of the sound dispersion.

Harman Kardon Enchant 800 sound bar shown with optional subwoofer.

The optional Enchant sub (sold separately) adds extra oomph to movies, shows, and music.

The Enchant 800 can also decode 5.1 Dolby® Digital and DTS® signals. The bar then uses its precisely placed speaker array — along with Harman Kardon's MultiBeam™ sound processing — to re-create spacious effects using a combination of direct and reflected sound.

Adjusted for your room

I know from experience that these sound reflections don't always work in an open and asymmetrical room. Fortunately, the bar can adjust its sound settings to compensate for less-than-ideal rooms with Automatic MultiBeam Calibration (AMC). You don't even need to hook up a microphone because it's built in to the bar.

Simple, yet powerful remote control

I always appreciate a well-designed remote control. This one offers independent bass control, audio sync adjustment, and a room calibration button. You can also program the remote with up to six audio presets of your own with saved volume, bass, and sound mode settings.

Want more bass?

The ported design of the Enchant 800 delivers impressive lows on its own, but the companion subwoofer is a very worthy upgrade, especially for big fans of bass.

Easy wireless streaming

Whether you want to stream your favorite Spotify® playlist, shuffle all your Pandora® stations, or listen to your downloaded podcasts, this sound bar has you covered with both Chromecast and Bluetooth® capabilities built in.

Chromecast & Bluetooth Audio

Active Soundbar Speaker

H/K Enchant 800 Soundbar: The Harman/Kardon Enchant 800 active soundbar speaker features dedicated Front L/R, Center, and Surround L/R channels for immersive surround sound from a single speaker system. Each Front channel and the Center channel consist of two 2" full-range drivers for a total of six drivers that are uniquely angled across the front of the soundbar speaker. Each Surround channel consists of a uniquely angled side-firing 1" dome tweeter. These angled Front and Center drivers, along with side-firing Surround tweeters, and rear-firing bass port enable an immersive surround experience with deep, rich, full-range sound for movie and music soundtracks.

MultiBeam Surround Sound: Harman Kardon's proprietary MultiBeam technology delivers a full surround sound effect for your movies, TV shows, and games without the need for extra speakers and wires. It utilizes a digital signal processing (DSP), which allows the Enchant 800 soundbar to provide a surround sound experience without additional speakers. The DSP, in conjunction with side-firing transducers, forms a sharp decoded audio pattern, beaming sound off the walls on all sides of the room to create an exciting, immersive surround sound experience.

Automatic MultiBeam Calibration (AMC): Automatic MultiBeam Calibration (AMC) will optimize the soundbar sound settings for a better surround sound experience. The Enchant 800 sound will automatically adjust to the unique dimensions of the room using a proprietary algorithm and the soundbar's built-in drivers (no external wired microphone required). The total calibration will last less than 60 seconds.

Dolby Digital & DTS Decoding: The Harman/Kardon Enchant 800 offers 5.1ch Dolby Digital & DTS decoding through its HDMI jacks, optical digital input, and 8-channel amplifier.

Sound Modes & Presets: Choose between six Sound Mode Presets - Standard, Music, Movie, Voice, Personal, & Night. The Voice mode enhances dialog with a minimal MultiBeam Surround Sound effect. Personal mode lets you increase or decrease the bass response of the MultiBeam Surround Sound effect. Night Mode reduces the soundbar's dynamic range of Dolby Digital/DTS soundtracks for late-night listening. You can store up to six Audio Presets with saved Volume, Bass, & Sound Mode settings.

Audio Sync: The Audio Sync function lets you decrease or increase the audio sync delay if the video and audio synchronization is not correct.

Optional Wireless Powered Sub: You can add Harman/Kardon's wireless powered subwoofer (Enchant Sub - sold separately) for deeper, louder bass response.

HDMI 2.0a Connectivity: The Harman/Kardon Enchant 800 is equipped with one HDMI input and one HDMI ARC output. Both the HDMI input and output support the latest HDMI 2.0a specification with ultra high-definition 4K video pass-through, HDCP 2.2 compatibility, HDR (High Dynamic Range), ARC, & Dolby Digital/DTS (up to 5.1ch).

  • 4K Pass-Through: The H/K soundbar lets you maintain 4K quality from source to screen by allowing 4K video to "pass through" and be displayed on a 4K TV or projector, without compromising image quality. Giving you the pure 4K experience makes this soundbar the perfect partner for 4K-capable TVs and Ultra-HD Blu-ray players. 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signal are also supported.
  • HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by all of the soundbar's HDMI jacks. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with Ultra HD Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range Video): HDR (High Dynamic Range) reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, bringing greater contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail. The soundbar supports HDR10, the most popular HDR format (not compatible with Dolby Vision or HLG).
  • ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature of the soundbar speaker system's HDMI output allows audio to be sent from your compatible HDTV to the soundbar speaker through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.
Note: The ARC-enabled HDMI input of many televisions only sends an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box).

Digital & Analog Audio Input: In addition to HDMI connectivity, the Enchant 800 soundbar features a optical (toslink) digital input and a stereo minijack (3.5mm) analog audio input. The optical digital input will support 2ch PCM and Dolby Digital/DTS (up to 5.1ch).

Note: The digital optical output terminals of most newer flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box).

USB-A 2.0 Port: The H/K Enchant 800 features a USB (type-A) 2.0 port for connection of a USB MSC (mass storage class) device, such as a USB thumbdrive. You'll be able to playback a variety of compressed and high-resolution music files stored on a USB MSC device (formatted in FAT 16 or FAT32) through the H/K soundbar speaker. You'll also get basic playback control (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, and Random/Repeat) from the included IR remote. Advanced music browsing and song/artist/album info display are not supported. The USB port can also be used to charge (5V/1A) your connected device. Compatible music files include -

Audio Format Sample Rate Bit-Rate or Bit-Depth
MP3 8kHz to 48kHz 8kbps to 320kps
AAC 8kHz to 96kHz up to 576kbps
OGG 8kHz to 48kHz up to 576kbps
WAV (PCM) 44.1kHz to 192kHz 16 or 24-bit
FLAC 8kHz to 192kHz 16 or 24-bit

Note: The USB port does not support Apple iOS or Android OS device playback.

Remote Control: The H/K Enchant 800 comes with an IR remote for wireless control of the soundbar speaker, as well as basic playback control of Chromecast, Bluetooth, and USB audio devices. The system also supports "System Standby" and "One Touch Play" HDMI CEC commands. In addition, the Enchant 800 can respond to "Volume Up/Down" and "Mute" commands from most Samsung, Sony, LG, and Vizio TV remote controls automatically (no programming required). If your TV's remote does not control the soundbar automatically, you can program the Enchant 800 to respond your TV remote's "Volume Up/Down" and "Mute" commands.

Mounting Options: The Harman/Kardon Enchant 800 can simply be placed on a table-top or wall mounted. The soundbar's integrated rubber feet provide safe placement on a flat surface below your TV, while the included brackets allow you to wall-mount the soundbar speaker below your television. When positioning the Enchant 800, remove any interference from both sides of the soundbar so the side-firing speakers can operate correctly and reflect sound in your room (blocking the side-firing tweeters will affect acoustic performance).

AC Power with Auto Standby/Wake: The H/K Enchant 800 comes with a detachable AC power cord which plugs into the back of the soundbar and into an AC power outlet or surge protector (sold separately). The soundbar automatically switches to standby after 10 minutes of no audio/video signal and operation. The soundbar will automatically power back on again if it receives an audio signal from the last detected connection.

Customer Q&A

22 questions already asked

I bought this soundbar from you guys six months ago. Since the corresponding subwoofer has been discontinued, what do you guys recommend should go well with this sound bar?
[ eddie  Jul 17, 2021 ]
1 answer
This bar is only able to work with the Enchant powered subwoofer. There is no way to connect other brand or model subwoofers.
[ Paul  Jul 27, 2021 ]  Staff
I have a Klipsch SB-1 center channel speaker with sub woofer... the right side of the center speaker is "out" and no longer plays sound... the subwoofer is fine. Can I pair it with this center channel speaker?
[ Mike  May 19, 2021 ]
1 answer
The Klipsch SB-1 soundbar/subwoofer setup will not work with any other speakers or soundbars. The only solution to continue to use any part of the Klipsch system is to repair the part that no longer plays. We have a customer service number of 616-392-6911 for Klipsch and recommend contacting them to check on getting it repaired
[ Paul  Jun 05, 2021 ]  Staff
Can this be mounted hanging from the TV?
[ BRIAN  Mar 24, 2021 ]

It can be wall mounted, I don't think it would work to be mounted directly to the TV.

Do you need wifi if you are only using an optical cable and the HK remote for setup?
[ Roger  Feb 17, 2021 ]
1 answer
Mine is set up with just the optical cable. You do not need wifi. It will also act as a bluetooth speaker without wifi.
[ Ted from Ohio  Feb 20, 2021 ]
Can this soundbar be paired with a pair of bluetooth headphones?
[ Eytan  Jan 24, 2021 ]
3 answers
I don't think so , I tried it before but wasn't able to
[ F  Jan 24, 2021 ]
Simply answered- no. Why not? Think of your sound bar as headphones that everyone can hear. They receive data (sound) rather than transmit data like your TV, receiver, music source, etc. There are products on the market that do what you're looking for, unfortunately not sound bars.
[ Scott  Jan 24, 2021 ]
Nope because this is Bluetooth receiver and not transmitter
[ VIJAY  Jan 24, 2021 ]
What room size for 800 vs. 1300?
[ John  Dec 30, 2020 ]
1 answer
There is no specific room size recommendation because that combined with performance goals are both weighed when considering performance in a room. I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to discuss your room and goals to get a personal recommendation on which one to get.
[ Paul  Jan 19, 2021 ]  Staff
Two questions: is anyone having issues with Bluetooth staying connected, and how do I see status, source, etc?. I don't see any lights or indicators on my device. Wondering if I have a lemon. Sound if very good when it works. It just doesn't seem to want to consistently work.
[ Robert  Dec 10, 2020 ]

No connection issues, but a few times when using optical source the volume started at max level and i had to turn it off and back on because volume didn't work.
[ DAVID  Dec 10, 2020 ]
Yes I have the same problem. I usually just unplug the sound bar and let it reset. Then it works until the next time.

Yes. Super easy to pair.

I have a Sony XBR-65X900C TV and I am streaming from my Apple 4K TV, my question is why, after the sound bar is inactive for 10 minutes and goes into standby, does it not turn on when I turn the power on from the Apple 4K TV? Basically after 10-15 mins every device is off and they have to be turned on individually
[ Zach  Dec 04, 2020 ]

It turns on when tv sends sound to it.
[ RONALD  Jul 05, 2021 ]
I had the same problem with my Sony. Never able to find a solution. I put it on my Samsung tv and have never had a problem. Sorry, I can't give you a solution.
[ MICHAEL F  Dec 13, 2020 ]

The Google Home App can set up the HK Enchant 800 sound bar to connect to your Wi-Fi.
[ RALPH  Nov 30, 2020 ]
I don't know. The sound quality was so bad I returned it for a Bose sound bar.

Yes. I suggest you get the Sub also to help with sound though.
[ Julie  Oct 15, 2020 ]
I have an old Sony plasma that I want to hook up this to. It is not a smart TV, but does have an optical and HDMI inputs. Will this soundbar be easy to set up on my old TV?
[ Yannick  Sep 02, 2020 ]
5 answers
I don't see why not. One HDMI cable and port will work. If the Sony Plasma TV does not have an HDMI ARC port you may have to use the HK 800 Remote control to control the volume of the TV.
[ Rod  Sep 07, 2020 ]
It should work great easy set up. You don't need a smart tv.
[ Patrick  Sep 05, 2020 ]
I use the optical port and it works well.
[ BRIAN  Sep 04, 2020 ]
Very Easy. Either one of those will work. I prefer the HDMI route when given the option. The bar sounds great, BTW.
[ Michael  Sep 04, 2020 ]
Yes, optical works fine for me.
[ Dominic  Sep 04, 2020 ]

[ Frank  Jun 15, 2020 ]
Probably but not sure you will want too. I returned mine I ended up buying the bottom line Bose solo 5 sound bar and had way better sound quality. Hard trying to find decently priced soundbars that aren't hooked up to Alexa/ google/ government.
[ Patrick  Jun 14, 2020 ]
The Harmon Kardon subwoofer is made to pair with the Enchant 800 (and 1300) sound bars wirelessly. I have no idea if you can pair your subwoofer to the sound bar. I guess you could try.
[ Andy  Jun 14, 2020 ]
What is the maximum bass level? I can only get zero and minus 6, i can't get +1.. +6
[ tayyab  May 22, 2020 ]
4 answers
0 to - 6 unless you add the subwoofer, which will give you the full range of - 6 to +6
[ BILL  Dec 05, 2020 ]
I do not know the "maximum level", but I have used +3
[ MICHAEL J  Jun 04, 2020 ]
Can't really tell a difference with the base mode. If you really want to hear base probably have to purchase the optional sub woofer.
[ JACQUELINE  Jun 04, 2020 ]
Hi. I just checked mine. It also only goes from -6 to zero.
[ Howard  Jun 03, 2020 ]
Is this compatible with third-party subwoofers?
[ gseely  May 19, 2020 ]

Hard wired, not sure about wireless. BUT, I bought the bar on a special with the intent of getting the sub later, then after using this for a few months, honestly the sub isn't needed, great sound bar!

I don't think so. It pairs via Bluetooth with the woofer.

GSeely you know I am not sure about cross capatabilty. I have the Harman Kardon sub as well and they sound great. I would talk with the tech staff they should be able to help.

I was told no. It definitely doesn't have a subwoofer input/output and I couldn't pair it with other examples in my house of other speakers. In talking to Crutchfield, they confirmed you couldn't before I ordered mine.

You can add the sound bar as a Bluetooth speaker via the Bluetooth settings on your Apple device and then stream Apple Music.

Can i plug H/K enchant 800 into a receiver?

I can' say about the receiver, mine is plugged directly into Television. For what its worth however, I am very pleased with this unit. Fantastic price, solid well made item. Virtual surround sound does actually seem to work. More of a lighter sound, probably best with TV than music. It works seamlessly with the ARC connection and has a very elegant hidden display near the middle. If it works with receiver as well as television I would be happy with it.

I think it depends on the receiver. There is also a Bluetooth option so you could connect wirelessly.
