Harman Kardon Omni 20 Wireless HD Stereo Speaker Overview



Audioholics Sheriff
Wireless speakers are quickly becoming one of the most popular audio products. These devices offer a lot of flexibility, they are easy to carry and you can put them almost anywhere....wherever, whenever. But what if you want to do the same in more than one room at the same time? With this in mind, the guys at Harman Kardon created the Omni 20 HD Wireless Stereo Speaker.

One of the advantages of this unit is that you can add more Omni 20 speakers or other Harman Kardon wireless products to create a whole-home music system. This unit works over Wi-Fi. Which means it's easy to control with a smartphone and doesn't require any more installation other than plugging in the power cord. Once you are connected, you can stream music using a smartphone or tablet and you will also be able to send tunes to a single speaker or multiple speakers throughout your home over Wi-Fi.

In charge of the sound, the Omni 20 features two 3/4" tweeters and two 3" woofers powered by dedicated 15-watt amplifiers. (See pic below)

Another nice thing to note is that it also has Bluetooth on-board for added convenience. Do you like this unit? Let me know what you think!
