Harman Kardon Citation ONE is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suveren lyd med gode tillegg Jeg fikk denne til jul og har gledet meg over den gode, velkjente Harman Kardon kvaliteten som jeg har opplevd tidligere. Er det noe jeg lurer på trykker jeg bare på knappen og får svar fra Google assistent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, powerful. Love it! I've had it for about 3 weeks now, and I'm never letting it go! The design is stunning. I've got the grey one, and it fits perfectly into our modern home. It feels very well made. The fabric is nice to the touch, the metal on top is sturdy and it's heavy. This speaker has become my go-to to listen to music at home. Even though it's small enough to fit almost anywhere, it still packs a punch! The music is really well balanced, and there's no lack of bass. I'm not loving the touch controls on top of the speaker so I just use voice commands or the Google Home app. The only downfall of this speaker is also it's biggest feature, the Google Assistant. The Google Assistant can understand simple commands, so getting my tv to turn on, and start watching a show on Netflix goes smoothly. Try asking it to create an event in your calendar, with a specific date and time, and it refuses. After trying for 15 minutes I finally figured a way around it, but the whole point of the Assistant is to be simple and easy to use. So if you got to do a ton of research or asking something in 10 different phrases, then it ain't working as intended. So to summon this review up; The speaker itself is amazing, and well worth every dime! Google Assistant is far from perfect, and sometimes downright annoying to use. But the future looks bright though, it's frequently updated and with the updates comes more stability and features! Therefore I'm still going to give the speaker an Excellent rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing sound! Amazing sound for such a small speaker,however the only downside would be Google assistant is not as responsive as Google home max.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looks! I have had this for 2 weeks now and it has become a part of our home, even my girlfriend (how doesnt like gadgets & tech) appreciates this speaker and its functionalities. I really like how it looks, and the gray color matches my couch perfect. But the size of the citation ONE is a bit small for my living room, so I use it in the kitchen as a smart radio, and I am still able to use the smart features of the speaker. The installation was really easy with the google home app, and I have now integrated the TV and my lighting. So I am not able to turn the lights on and off by voice command, but I need to be in the same room since I have only one citation, yet As a kitchen or bedroom speaker it sounds well and have rich sound even on low volume. I really appreciate the ability to play radio directly from the speaker, not needing to use a external device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good alternative to Google Home I've been able to test his speaker for a couple of weeks. It does a good job as a Google assistant, just as you would expect from any speaker that carries that with it. I do like the design of this better than the ones from Google though, and the sound quality is a whole lot better in this one.

is there an update coming for this speaker? I hope there is an update because there is not EQ available in the google home app. Also there is not possible to set 2 speakers in stereo mode,even though you can pair 2 speakers they sound mono, why is that?

Asked by: Luis182
Hi there, there is no EQ for our Citation speakers in the Google Home app. We are always looking at ways to improve our products, and it&rsquo;s possible that it could be supported in a future software update.

Can the Citation One pair with the JBL Xtreme2?

Asked by: SaZo
Hey SaZo, thanks for asking. Our Harman Kardon Citation One can't pair with the JBL Xtreme 2. We currently have the JBL Flip 4, JBL Pulse 3, JBL Charge 3 (after firmware upgrade), JBL Charge 4&nbsp;and JBL Boombox which have Connect+ that can pair with the JBL Xtreme 2.

Very nice speaker! I'm just missing a equalizer feature to adjust settings. I know the Google Home App normally allow me to adjust treble and bass, but not on this speaker. I will also appreciate a page where i read firmware/updates to follow new features

Will two cititation one speakers grouped together provide true stereo sound as announced in product slide 7 or only play two mono sources? Research your answer carefully, you will be held accountable if I buy a pair and it turns out they dont play stereo

Asked by: Andbir
How about an &quot;official&quot; answer to the question seeing as how you've had several inquiries about how to do this?!!! Gian, nice that you say you can do it through the Google Home app but you didn't leave an explaination or instructions. Also, it seems that several customers have tried and end up with dual mono speakers. These are relatively expensive speakers, you'd think there'd be better customer service on a question like this. Sonos does stereo pairing... maybe we should all return our HK speakers and get Sonos?

I don't have a wifi network, and am having trouble connecting my smartphone to the citation one via Bluetooth. Please help, before I have to return the speaker back. Thanks in advance

Asked by: Rikdarocker
Hi, you will actually need to set up the HK Citation One to the Google Home App first before you'll be able to get the Bluetooth working. You may try to set it it up at your friend's home using their internet access and you can go back to your home with Bluetooth access even without any wifi nearby.

Will the Citation One pair with other Google assistant speakers to create a multiroom experience? (i.e. JBL Link 20)

Asked by: Chuck GP
Yes you can. The Link series and the Citation Series are both Google Assistant speakers and can be grouped to play together.

I recently purchased the Citation One and am trying to get it to sync with my Vizio 4k Smart TV Model E65-E1. If I am playing a movie or something from my phone casted to the TV I would like to hear it through the HK speaker as well as the TV.

Asked by: KennyR
If you are trying to cast to the TV using your phone, It would only have the Audio play on the TV speakers only or on the Citation ONE only if the speaker is paired through Bluetooth. If you require more assistance and info, please submit a case request and so we can assist you at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html .
