Award-winning Citation sound and style meets portability and durability, with the Harman Kardon Citation 200.

Citation made portable
Featuring a built-in, rechargeable battery and tough, IPX4 rated construction, the Citation 200 makes the perfect Citation speaker – unplugged. Perfect for music in the garden or even indoor areas where there’s no power supply, such as a bathroom, the Citation 200 is a versatile speaker.

Up to 8 hours battery life
Fully charged, the Citation 200 is good for up to 8 hours playback – perfect for a day spent indoors or out. When the power finally runs out, simply place on its supplied cradle and listen as it charges. There’s also a handy USB-C charging socket on the back, for charging when you’re away from home.

Handy for indoors and out
Rated at IPX4, the Citation 200 is splashproof, making it ideal for use in the bathroom or kitchen. It’ll even fend off a few raindrops when outdoors, giving you time to move the party indoors. For easy portability, a smart, folding handle is standard.

Class-leading bass response
Just like other Citation speakers, the Citation 200 majors on bass. With effortless power and depth, you’ll be amazed by just how powerful this compact speaker sounds. Perfect for getting the party started or just to fill the room with rich, well-balanced sound, the Citation 200 is a powerful performer.

Harman Kardon quality sound
World renowned for their premium home and in-car hi-fi systems, Harman Kardon have over 65 years of high-end audio experience. This immense knowledge is condensed into the Citation 200 for first-rate sound quality. As well as the powerful bass, the Citation 200 delivers clarity and life-like realism.

Pair up for stereo
If you want the deep, powerful sound to fill even more of the room then simply add an additional speaker, for stereo sound. This not only boosts the volume but also delivers true stereo sound, for a more life-like soundstage.

Premium style
Using a premium wool blended fabric, made by Kvadrat, and rounded style the Citation 200 blends smoothly with your room. For the 200 model, the fabric features a special coating for easy, wipe-clean maintenance. Available in black or grey the speaker is both distinctive and unobtrusive.

Built-in Google Assistant for voice support
With Google Assistant built-in, this Harman Kardon soundbar is also a Smart speaker. Just talk to stream music, find answers on Google Search (the world’s most popular search engine) and manage everyday tasks. As part of the Google Home system, you can also use the speaker to voice control your smart home – perfect for keeping control of a Nest thermostat, for example.

Chromecast Support for near limitless audio streaming
Chromecast Audio lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps. With over 300 music services available, there’s always something to listen to on the Citation 200

Apple AirPlay 2
If you prefer Apple iOS to Google, you can stream your music to the speaker via Apple AirPlay 2. Use the iPhone app to choose your soundtrack and mood, with the Citation 200 effortlessly becoming a part of an AirPlay multi-room speaker system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Citation 200 smart speaker I had been looking to purchase a new Bluetooth /smart speaker for a while and was a bit confused as to what to go for, the choice is endless, but I finally decided on the Harman/Kardon Citation 200 smart speaker, and so far I'm very happy with it, sounds great, plenty loud enough and nice and bassy, looks good and easy to use, I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full, rich sound I accidentally bought my son a knock of bluetooth speaker for Christmas. It was very disappointing. SoI took him to Richer sounds in Reigate on Monday 27th. Told him budget £130 but you can add money of your own. The salmon was fantastic and played music loudly through several speakers so my son could hear and choose. He went for this. The sound is rich, full and filled the room. He happily added £100 of his own and is totally delighted with it. The reduction from £299 was the cherry on top. All's well that ends well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Volume too low With a 120mm woofer they could do better. The volume is too low. The JBL charge 4/5 with a smaller woofer and 20 watts less has the same volume and almost the same bass despite the JBL charge being small

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be improved I really like the design. It's a matter of taste - the Harman Citation 200 is definitely an eye-catcher. There is nothing wrong with the sound. The bass is sufficient, the highs clear without clinking. The speaker's biggest flaw, however, is the software. The volume cannot be regulated well at all. The lowest level is not really quiet and too loud for room volume. You can at least control it on your mobile phone via Bluetooth. However, the Alexa app does not allow you to control volume or sound. It is URGENTLY necessary to make improvements here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker! The Harman Kardon Citation 200 is now 2 Weeks in my possession. The first impression starts with the packing. You can see the high-quality while your unboxing the Speaker. The Speaker comes with a Charging Pad and a cable. Because of the AirPlay support, was this the first function which I tested. The sound is clean and I really enjoyed listening to my music. After a few songs I started to set up the Speaker with the Google Home App. It was really easy and the Speaker was ready to use after a few minutes. There are 3 ways to connect your Smartphone with the Citation 200, Apple AirPlay, Chromecast built in or Bluetooth. The Google Assistant works pretty good. The requests are processed quickly. When you don’t want the Assistant to listen to you, you can mute the microphone on the back of the speaker. 

The Citation 200 has a simple but really good looking design. You can carry the speaker with the built in handle.  With nearly 3kg the speaker isn’t a lightweight. I would recommend the Harman Kardon Citation 200. The Sound is great and you can carry the Speaker where you want. The battery lasts round about 8 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly compact sound-machine I chose the harman kardon for many different reasons. However, in many ways the primary reason was to simplify my day. Portable, battery-powered, superior sound quality, water-resistant, build-in Chromecast and Google Assistant. My expectation was a speaker that could fulfil all that at the same time, while not costing more than my smartphone. All of the many features are listed on the product page, so I won’t be citing those here, just let me tell you, there are a lot of smart and handy ways to use this speaker. For those in a hurry: I was not disappointed. The premium feeling started with the packaging, which feels solid and thought-through. During unpacking, you find manuals and cables in the right order to set it up and everything is easy to remove from the box. The speaker is solid, a little on the heavy side, feels very sturdy and of high quality manufacturing. The wide and soft leather handle makes for a comfortable holding experience, even when carrying it for some time. I wanted to connect the speaker using Google Home and was not disappointed with how easy this is. To verify the ease to do this, I reset it again and let my wife set it up as well. It took her just over 3 minutes without even reading the manual. The design is strikingly simple and blends in nicely with the room décor. Every element of the speaker is kept in its primary colour (dark grey in my case). The buttons on the top are clearly visible, yet camouflaged by the top plain. The Smart Speaker “action lights” (used when listening, loading and also for volume display) are hidden behind the front mesh, so unless they are actively used, there is no sight of an LED. If the speaker is placed on its separate charging pad, it “sinks in” a little bit, so that it stands very secure, yet I can’t help but wonder if it would have been possible to have the pad hide fully under the speaker. Although the battery life is great, I once forgot to place it on the charging pad and went on a BBQ, where the battery was about to run out at the prime time of the evening. However, since the speaker itself can be charged through USB-C (11,5W) even without the charging pad, I was able to use my smartphone charger. This makes it charge slower, than the near 60W charging pad, but it keeps the party going all night. Now when it comes to the sound properties, I will be honest, I am no sound expert. I don’t speak wavelengths and jargon, but I like to listen to music and like it to “sound good”. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised to experience a clear and strong sound, even at the highest volume levels. In fact, the sound was so good and clear; I went ahead and made this my primary music-machine in the living room (before it was an old Samsung Sound bar). So, to sum it up, I can only recommend this speaker to anyone looking for a high-end speaker for a fair price. We will be buying our second Citation 200 soon, to make use of the multi-room and Dual-Play system. Pro: + quick, easy to set up + high-quality, durable feeling + long battery life (8h) with quick charging (3h) + crystal-clear sound even at maximum volume + microphone captures voice without trouble over music Contra: - can be heavier than expected (some 3kg)
