HK SB20 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Soundbar I've ever owned Recently, I replaced my old speakers with this soundbar. And I had no regrets. This sound bar is simply exceptional and really impressive sounding. It played almost all genres of songs really good. It's warm bass, powerful mids, and crystal clear highs handles the job easily. When I watch HD concerts I can't help but pump the volume up because the sound is just so real and immersive; it's like being there in the concert hall. And with the movies? It's bass is really tight and punchy... I can say for myself, as a cinema goer, that the sound coming from this speakers is close to that in movie theatres and sometimes I think it is even better; clear dialogue, powerful explosions, I can even pinpoint where the tiny sounds like bullets ricocheting are. Although, it lacks simple features like indicators for tuning the bass with the remote.

How do I stop the soundbar going to sleep when I've pause a programme? This is proving to be very frustrating.

Asked by: Christal
Hello! Thank you for your message. We are sorry to hear you are not satisfied with the product. Because of EuP-regulations, the unit must enter Standby after 10 minutes to save power, when no sound is detected. Your HK component has a fixed threshold for this level.

Hi There I bought the HK SB20 and can't seem to connect any other device than my phone to Bluetooth, which is the first thing I connected. The system is not discoverable to any other devices even if my phone's Bluetooth is switched off.

Asked by: KingJuan
To make the SB20 discoverable with a new source device, simply press and hold the Bluetooth button for 3 seconds while the unit is on. Make sure your source device is in search mode and it should recognize the SB20 within a few seconds. If this doesn't help, hold down the Volume+ and Surround buttons for more than 5 seconds to reset the SB20. The SB20 will automatically reboot itself, after it has been reset. Restart the pairing process. If none of these things work, please submit a case at www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Asked by: Marc Arthor
The SB250 has Bluetooth version of 2.1 ER and compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled devices. It's not chromecast-buit in and cannot be connected to other wireless speaker.

Where can we get a complete list of the functionality of this device? The QSG is near useless. What is "Harmon Sound" for example? Other posts have managed to obtain information about remote control learning and device reset... What else is hidden?

Asked by: FrustratedCustomer
Hi, Thank you for your question and concern. The Quick Start Guide covers all features of what the soundbar can do, and to know what a specific feature can do, then in our Spec sheet found on our website you can read about the features. To explain what Harman Sound is, please see below: No more loud commercials or other sudden volume changes – Harman Volume automatically keeps audio changes smooth and consistent so you can pay attention to your entertainment, not your remote. I will forward your feedback to our engineering department. If you need more assistance or help, please contact us at customer.service@harman.com

Hi how can you turn on dolby digital i can only access normal settings on my tv turning on digital results in loss of sound my connection is via hdmi to hdmi arc on tv .

Asked by: Manolos
Hi Manalos, The Soundbar will detect the source signal and if that is Dolby digital content, then it will play source in the Soundbar. If you have the possibility to change the settings to PCM or Bitstream (depending on what it is set to now), then that might solve the issue. The last thing would be to try the Soundbar on a different TV and see how the results will be when testing Dolby Digital. If you seek further assistance or help, please contact our customer service at customer.service@harman.com
