Harman Kardon Citation Streaming Amplifier Launched

Harman Kardon's latest addition to its Citation line is a compact Class D amplifier with streaming smarts.

The Citation Amp from Harman Kardon packs hi-res streaming and enough grunt to power most speakers whether they be bookshelf, floor-standing or in-wall. Furthermore, you can combine it with other Harman Kardon Citation products to create a multi-channel wireless surround sound system.

Firstly this compact (215x75x230mm) unit boasts 125 watts of Class D amplification per channel into 8 ohms or 200W into 4 ohms, a wide selection of connections including HDMI ARC, Coax, Optical and RCA, and a quoted frequency response of 20Hz-20kHz. Additionally, there's a line out and a subwoofer output, too.

As well as Wi-Fi, there is Bluetooth 4.2 for wireless streaming. It also hands you access to over 300 music streaming services through Chromecast built-in and AirPlay.

The Citation Amp features Harman Kardon Digital Loop amplification that, we're told, corrects the natural errors and distortion anomalies that occur in digital amplification.

You can optimise the amp for your speakers, as well as the room, thanks to an adjustable EQ, and customisable settings for maximum volume, mono summing and subwoofer crossover.

Harman Kardon Citation Amp

Harman Kardon has designed the Citation Amp to effortlessly blend into any environment. This “discrete yet premium” amplifier can be installed anywhere. It's compatible with popular connected home automation control systems, including both Control4 and Crestron.

The Harman Kardon Citation Amp will be available later this month for £549.
