Introduced at IFA 2018, the Harman Kardon Citation Series is a new line of highly sophisticated, wireless smart speakers featuring immersive audio powered by Summit’s WiSA-certified technology. As a WiSA-enabled series, the Harman Kardon Citation offers a wireless, low latency multi-channel surround sound audio experience with incredibly easy setup. This eliminates the wiring of traditional systems to create powerful and reliable audio systems that boast uninterrupted listening enjoyment.

Summit Wireless worked with Harman International on the development of the new Harman Kardon Citation Series, showcased for the first time at IFA 2018. The series includes the Citation Tower, Bar, Sub, and Surround smart speakers, each designed to fit a variety of home entertainment needs.

“Our technology partnership with HARMAN is pivotal to our mission of enabling intelligent devices and next generation systems to deliver immersive, wireless sound that pushes the consumer experience to new heights,” says Brett Moyer, president and CEO of Summit Wireless. “Harman Kardon’s Citation Series addresses the needs of savvy consumers who want exceptional audio quality without compromise, and this new product line delivers on that.”

According to HARMAN, the Harman Kardon Citation Series is "designed for discerning people who command sophistication and seamless capabilities that blend with their daily lives." This means targeting new lifestyles that demand total wireless connectivity. The Citation series offers voice control, multi-room, multi-channel surround playback, built-in Chromecast and more features.

“The Harman Kardon Citation Series sets a new standard for premium, wireless home audio and entertainment systems, and Summit Wireless is an integral part of delivering sophisticated, seamless solutions to consumers,” states Dave Rogers, President of Consumer Audio at HARMAN. “Leveraging Summit’s WiSA-certified technology enables us to offer unprecedented immersive sound experiences that take full advantage of the today’s most intelligent devices.”

Product availability depends on market. Pre-orders can be placed on harmankardon.com starting October 2018.

In addition to the Harman Kardon Citation Series, Summit Wireless has also provided WISA-enabled technology to power a host of other leading-edge intelligent devices and entertainment systems, including Xbox, VOXX International, GoldenEar, Electrocompaniet, Almando, Primare, Infineon Technologies, Sound United, Eastech and more.
