Harman Kardon Citation One MkII review


Harman Kardon sticks to its tried and tested sound

Powerful, punchy sound ; Easy listen ; Can pair in stereo

Timing and dynamics fall short ; Not the most detailed

The Harman Kardon Citation One MkII shares the sonic character of every other speaker we’ve heard in the range, and that’s not a bad thing

Harman Kardon Citation One review


A handsome smart speaker that dishes out the bass

Handsome design ; Gets loud without distortion ; Sounds like a bigger speaker

Overwhelming bass at times ; Average voice detection ; No EQ available

Harman Kardon Citation One


Harman Kardon's Citation One speaker uses Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Google Assistant voice control to deliver a user-friendly, bass-forward audio experience.

Powerful audio performance with deep bass and crisp highs. Easy to operate, both manually and via voice. Seamless Google Assistant integration.

Heavy bass vibrations can rattle speaker enclosure slightly at top volumes. Bass-forward sound signature not for purists. No wired audio connectivity.

The Harman Kardon Citation One delivers a user-friendly experience through its simple manual controls as well as through Google Assistant. It also puts out some solid, bass-forward audio as well. The lack of wired connectivity is annoying (but not...

Consumer review (

Google Home not as good as Alexa


There is no Google integration with BBC Sounds, which is annoying when trying to replay the Archers. The Google Home integration with Spotify is not great. It can just about play you a playlist or album, but trying to make it play an individual track...
