Crown (pro-audio) and Revel (higher end speakers) are two more Harman companies.
I wonder how Harman et al will be changed by this? For various reasons, I have the opinion that Harman is a progressive name in the audio fields but that their brands are poorly marketed. For instance, the general perception of Harman Kardon's increasingly poor quality control, whether true or not, is ultimately a marketing problem. In the consumer realm, JBL and Infinity are continuously drifting toward making the same class of products and relatively few know about Revel, leaving a gap in the middle of their consumer product range. I also do not think JBL's pro-audio equipment effectively brings its high-end connotation down to their consumer lines. A lot of potential without a grand plan it may seem.
