Citation 500 blends an exquisite design with an extraordinary sound experience

London – August 17, 2018 – Harman Kardon is proud to introduce the Harman Kardon Citation 500, a high-quality intelligent speaker with a sleek, sophisticated design. The Citation 500, which has been awarded with the prestigious EISA Smart Speaker 2018-2019, will deliver superb sound while complementing the aesthetics of your home.

Inspired by the timelessness and attention to detail of Nordic design, the Citation 500 has an elegant, yet eye-catching finish. Harman Kardon partnered with Kvadrat, Europe's leading design textiles manufacturer to design the innovative wool fabrics that lend the speaker a polished minimalist look. Like a true work of art, the Citation 500 stands out in the room without overpowering your interior.

The Citation 500 delivers a dynamic listening experience that will satisfy even the most discerning of audiophiles. With features including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Chromecast and Google Assistant, the Citation 500 enables a fully connected lifestyle and represents the next generation of home speakers.

“Our unprecedented audio legacy matched with the Kvadrat’s premium textiles has allowed us to develop this unique smart home speaker. Consumers today are looking for superior sound and superior design and with the Citation 500, that’s exactly what they’ll get,” said Michael Mauser, President, Lifestyle Audio at HARMAN. “We’re delighted that the Citation 500 has been recognized by EISA”.

The Harman Kardon Citation 500 will be showcased at IFA 2018, along with a complete range of beautifully designed audio products. It can be pre-ordered at www.harmankardon.com from the end of September.
