Outstanding sound, wireless streaming, and advanced digital signal processing in a compact sculptural enclosure
November 05, 2013 --
STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, announces a new full-range sound system in two compact sculptural enclosures. The Harman Kardon Nova Stereo Streaming System is designed with digital connections in mind to interface smoothly with laptops, desktop computers, tablets, and mobile devices.
"Say hello to the next generation of hi-fi," said Michael Mauser, President of HARMAN Lifestyle, "and say good-bye to complexity and clutter. We put serious audio reproduction and staging into a unique sculptural enclosure that most people will not recognize as a speaker system at all. Harman Kardon Nova is an object of art that fills your room with great sound."
One glance at the sleek, translucent spherical exterior of the Harman Kardon Nova system reveals the unique turbine housing of its woofer enclosure and the passive radiator that gives Harman Kardon Nova its impressive bass response. Equally impressive are the features that are not visible: performance-tuned 2.5" drivers and 1.25" tweeters, and Harman Kardon Digital Signal Processing for sound staging and voicing that produce jaw-dropping depth and realism.
The Harman Kardon Nova system is compatible with any device. Its combination of analog and optical inputs makes it perfect for use with Roku, HDTV, and Apple TV systems. Quick NFC setup makes it easy to stream music wirelessly over the Harman Kardon Nova system using Bluetooth, and its compact size and shape beg to be placed anywhere.
Download the Harman Kardon Remote app for your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone to stream your music collection from anywhere on your network to a Harman Kardon speaker in any room of the house. The app also simplifies product setup and gives you control of product specific features for full wireless control.
