Rated 5 out of 5 by JC72 from Great service and amazing sound I bought this 2 weeks ago and the service was amazing, had time to compare different products and so thank you to Chiswick staff. The Harman Kardan 200 and 300 are brilliant both individually and together. Such depth of bass and so much better than Sonos and for better price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by photoking from Excellent advice, great price, total enjoyment Over the years I have purchased a number of items from Richer Sounds. Therefore, for my recent purchase of the Harman Kardon Citation 200 it once again proved to be the right choice. I was greeted politly, spoken to with knowledge, and helped with any questions I came up with. The speaker that I chose is a great success. Fabulous clarity, impressive bass, (and my wife appreciates the fact that it is in a subtle grey). Throughout the entire process of this purchase Richer Sounds have again demonstrated how to treat customers. A complete joy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PandaBoost 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 TestiNetti 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 Matthewpwde 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 Dom_ 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)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Myboysandmyself from Perfect no matter where you are, always a great sound. the bass is amazing. that sounded first class as well. thanks to the battery, you can easily take the device with you to the lake or other excursions. Simply connect to the mobile internet with your cell phone and enjoy music anywhere. the device impresses with its easy handling and the price is fair. With us, the Harman Kardon Citation 200 should not be missing at any garden party.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Guest01 from Great sound I have been using this smart bluetooth speaker non-stop. The sound is really amazing and its just enjoyable to listen to music or a podcast. Not to mention the high-quality workmanship and modern design. Its also kind handy to connect the device to a Google Home and give voice commands. However, what I missed was the compatibility with Alexa.
