We visited Harman Kardon’s exhibit at IFA 2014 to get our eyes and ears on the Omni wireless speakers the company announced at the show earlier this week. Given how much we enjoyed H/K’s Onyx Studio wireless speaker, we expected great things. We’re glad to report that we were not disappointed.
Aside from sounding very good, the Omni multi-room system’s app offers the sort of drag-and-drop simplicity we’ve come to expect. After all, if you’re going to try to beat Sonos at its own game, you best put some effort into making your system as easy to use as possible.
In our video, we show off the Omni 10 and the larger, more powerful Omni 20, as well as the Omni Adapt, which allows users to integrate any other powered audio system into the wirelessly meshed mix.
