Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harman Kardon Citation 300 Test of Harman Kardon Citation 300 Through Reviewclub I have been given the chance to try this speaker from Harman Kardon, This is a speaker with Google assistance which is exactly what I was looking for, I think the function with Google assistance works pretty well. Google needs to learn voices and commands but it works better every day. The sound in the speaker is very good and the design was for my part appealing, the speaker can be placed anywhere without having to be ashamed. I use the speaker to turn on and off the lights in the house, check the traffic before I go to work check weather forecasts and so on. I'd rather add the difference to this than buy a Google Home speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive piece of kit. Have had a Citation 300 for a couple of weeks now. Sound quality is great, very easy to set up & use, looks fantastic. Very good value too. Overall I am very impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big sound in a small box Had this speaker for about 3 weeks now, and I'm impressed by the audio quality of it. Simple to set up, looks good, and plays NICE. It's Chromecast enabled, so a few of these should be able to fill your house with music in a very nice way. Google Assistant integration works ok as I'm a Norwegian user, but not great. This is due to GA being still in a kind of beta phase for Norway, but for English native speakers it works like a charm. However, voice control is nice, but not necessary as it pops up as a unit in Spotify as well and can be controlled that way. All in all I will say it's a lot of sound for the money, and actually the first product I try that gives Sonos a run for it's money in terms of sound quality. The build quality is also very good, good weight and nice finish (I have the black one). Recommended if you want to try something for a multi room setup based on Google Cast, or just a lot of sound for a room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Gadget Overall, I am very pleased with the speaker, it plays well and loud. The voice assistant is exciting and has some useful features, but the speaker is not perfect. I am happy with the sound, it meets my demands for both bass and volume. However, I am no speaker expert just an average user, it satisfies my needs. The design is okay, maybe a little boring, but the materials that are used are solid. The big negative for me is the voice assistant, the Google Home app that one has to use was annoying already at startup. Several times I have experienced that it stops the music because it thinks I'm talking to it. In addition, I have to use the bluetooth feature to play podcasts from the podcast app on my Iphone. Sound control is also not seamless. If you do not want to physically go to the speaker or unlock your phone and then go into the Google Home app, you have to talk to HK Citation, it stops the music and it does not work every time, which is really annoying. But voice control can also be fantastic at times and helps me out. For example, simple things like asking about the weather or just starting a playlist from Spotify. I'm looking forward to when voice control will work seamlessly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, some start-up issues with google home Have tested this speaker for almost 1 weeks and are impressed witht he speaker. The design is clean and modern, so it will fit to any home. This is a steady speaker without any cheap plastic, and the sound is excellent! Had some start-up issues with Google Home. First there was difficulty addint the speaker in my google home app, and it manage to connect on the 3rd try. Then there was still some minor error saying it only support English language, thou this isn't true and I could easily add Norwegian language later on in the app on my phone. I'm using this with an iPhone 7 by the way... It seems like the google home assist understand most comments both on English and Norwegian, but sometimes answers in "wrong" language (the command is still correctly preformed thou). I experienced that when playing songs from Spotify, they would stop after a few seconds and I had to ask google to play the song again. Struggeled with this issue and had to reset the speaker 3 times before it dissapeared. Now I'm enjoying playing music without any issues. Would give the speaker a full top score if it wasn't for all the google issues...

Asked by: Magnus M
Hi! No, the Citation 300 can only connect with the Citation System therefore, it wouldn't connect and work with the Onyx Studio 4.
