Please note that if you have a large number of Apps open in your smartphone or tablet, this may block or overtax its processor. Dropouts may result. Try to close all or most active apps. This should solve the problem. \n\n2. Bluetooth signals from smartphones and tablets are not very strong. Make sure that the signal does not have to pass through doors, walls etc. Always maintain a clear line of sight between \ntransmitter and receiver. \n\n3. Do not carry your smartphone in your pocket, if you have dropouts. Your body can act as a screen, reducing the strength of the Bluetooth signal. Put the phone on a table or other surface. \n\n4. Do not walk around while listening. If the transmitter and the receiver are moved in relation to each other, dropouts occur more frequently.\n\n5. Under normal circumstances, you can expect a range of 5 meters with no problems, if you follow the above advice. In some instances range is longer, but we cannot promise this."}],"maxQuestionsPerPage":null,"maxPages":null}

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Quality I bought Aura Studio refurbished at an incredible price ($120) recently, I played all sorta music on it already. I listen to lot of music, podcasts and Radio. Aura sounds impressive compare to many popular Bluetooth players you can find. Don't waste a second if you can find it under $150.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker BUT........ I've had my aura studio for about a month. I noticed right out the box that although the bass was nice, you could actually hear the sub move..........??? Aren't you supposed to I'm sure that's what you are asking yourself! There is a slight difference between hearing the sound that a sub makes, and the sound the sub makes due to the music being played through it. Only audiophiles will understand. Anyways it's a amazing speaker great bass, highs and mid. Just don't sit to close or you'll hear the sub move......

How do I connect my smart tv to the speaker

Asked by: Helen
You can connect your Aura studio to your smart TV via Aux cable or bluetooth. We would suggest to use an auxiliary cable since our speakers are designed mainly for music and may have latency when playing movies when in bluetooth.

How do I sync my ak aura 2 with hk onyx 4?

Asked by: droc7321
The Aura studio 2 has the Dual sound feature which is different from the HK Onyx studio 4's HKConnect + feature so it would not be able to connect with each other.
