Harman Kardon Nova


The Harman Kardon Nova is a visually appealing desktop speaker pair that delivers audio performance to match its looks, though it runs into some deep bass trouble at high volumes.

Powerful audio performance with excellent clarity and rich lows. Can stream wireless Bluetooth audio in addition to wired digital and analog connections. Attractive design

Distorts with deep bass at top volumes. Physical controls can be annoying to operate

Harman Kardon is responsible for one of the most iconic computer speaker designs of the last 15 years: the SoundSticks series. The company has taken its familiar, visually stunning translucent designs and given them new shape and purpose with the Nova,...

Harman Kardon Nova 2.0 Review


If you're willing to spend a little more for their devilish good looks, HK's Nova are certainly worth consideration.

Clear, powerful sound ; Good bass response ; Cool form factor ; Solid wireless performance

Design comes at a price ; Lack fine-point precision ; Sound stage comes off as closed-in

Residing in one of the most competitive genres in audio, Harman Kardon’s new Nova 2.0 have their work cut out for them. Those looking for top-shelf precision in a stylized desktop can find it elsewhere for less cash, including the aforementioned Luna...

Harman Kardon Nova Bluetooth Speakers Video Review


Review: The Harman Kardon Nova Bluetooth Speakers feature fantastic aesthetics, NFC Bluetooth pairing, and a passive radiator for additional bass. At $300/pair, these are recommended.

Harman Kardon Nova review


They're expensive, but these are the best compact PC speakers we've heard

The speakers are a real pleasure to listen to, with a sound that has personality without being unbalanced, and we're delighted by the power and quality they produce for their size. The Harmon Kardon Novas are great if you've got £260 to spend on a set...

Harman Kardon Nova review: Just one Drum is good enough forthe punch


Bulky speakers were supposed to be replaced by the next-gen Bluetooth portable speakers but that hasn't really been the case, has it? The portable speakers we have seen so far have been good, but when it comes to power they are nowhere close to its...

If your taste in the Bose-segment has left you wanting, then Nova is just the right option for you. You can be anyone with genuine taste for music (all genres), but then consider the not-so-portable part very seriously before falling for the Nova. It's...
