Two independently amplified, 30-watt low-frequency woofers and two 15-watt, high-frequency tweeters ensure exceptional richness and clarity of sound. By amplifying the woofers and tweeters separately, the Harman Kardon Go + Play II delivers the kind of sharp, efficient, optimal sound quality that you expect from Harman KardonÒ products.

Designed with an angled cradle that can house your iPhone, iPod or other MP3 device, the Harman Kardon Go + Play II delivers high-performance playback anywhere and everywhere. There’s even an iPod nano adapter that fits onto the base. And that is just the beginning; the loudspeaker dock will export photos and directly to your TV, transforming the unit into a compact multimedia system.

The Harman Kardon Go + Play II is computer-optimized to produce an all-encompassing, 360-degree soundstage. With intelligent equalization (EQ) technology to dramatically improve stereo imaging, the dock delivers a powerfully tuned digital audio path for unsurpassed performance. Combining clean, compact digital amplification with digital signal processing (DSP), the loudspeaker dock employs one algorithm that optimizes system dynamics and bass impact in AC-power mode, and another to minimize distortion during battery operation – which is just a fancy way of saying that this audio system sounds great, no matter what the playback mode.

From its arched, stainless-steel handle to its iPhone/iPod docking cradle, the Harman Kardon Go + Play II combines utility with a functional industrial design. Stylish without being flashy, the docking station features black and silver accents that complement almost any interior design.

Two Atlas™ low-frequency woofers produce extended bass performance with minimal distortion, while two Odyssey® high-frequency tweeters project powerful musical detail over a broad range. As a result, this docking cradle delivers consist, high-quality playback that is capable of filling an entire soundstage.

A smart RF remote provides two-way communication and superior signal reception. In Music mode, you can adjust volume, change tracks and fast-forward/reverse through songs from up to 29 feet (9 meters) away. In Navigation mode, you have full iPod or iPhone functionality to browse by song, artist or album – as well as select playlists, slide shows and videos – as if you were holding the iPod or iPhone in your hand.

At home or on the go, the Harman Kardon Go + Play II works just as efficiently from battery power (eight type-D alkaline batteries) as it does when plugged into an electrical outlet. In AC mode, the dock will charge your mobile Apple device and be ready to go – to the beach, a park or wherever your imagination takes you – without using battery power.

To prevent battery power loss from your mobile Apple device, the dock also serves as a charging station when connected to an electrical outlet, keeping your iPod or iPhone ready for action. The Harman Kardon Go + Play II includes a universal dock adapter, making it compatible with most iPod models, including fifth-generation nano versions.

Touch-control technology means that one, simple button press either increases or decreases playback volume; another touch mutes or unmutes the output. A built-in memory stores all your previous settings when the system is powered on, a convenience feature that saves both time and energy.

A dedicated USB synchronization and charge port provides power to the connected iPhone or iPod even when the Harman Kardon Go + Play II is operating from battery power. The connected mobile device will also synchronize automatically with iTunes running on your PC or laptop.

In addition to serving as an iPhone/iPod dock for music and multimedia, the Harman Kardon Go + Play II features an S-Video output for replaying still images and video content on an external video display or TV receiver.

A stereo mini-jack connection offers the added freedom to enjoy high-quality audio playback from a variety of sources, including MP3 and CD players, desktop computers and laptops.

Exemplifying the balance among high style, modern design and audio ingenuity, the Harman Kardon Go + Play II fully embodies the spirit of Harman Kardon innovation, a legacy that discerning audio enthusiasts have revered for almost 60 years. Harman Kardon engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing products that are dedicated to quality, durability and, most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.

Go + Play™ II is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from crisp sound and durable I have had my go and play for six years and never a problem.This unit has kept people at my pigroasts entertained for years. Still sounds as good as the day that I bought it. The remote got a bit damp last weekend and died. Love to find a new one. Overall a very good investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Plain Awesome I have had my Go-Play for more than 8 years. It still sounds amazing. I have had to add a Bluetooth adapter because it doesn't support IOS lightning connectors but it doesn't make any difference to me as long as the sound is as incredible as it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bass I've had this for 2 weeks and I love it. Has very good bass. Way better than Bose

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Device I bought one of these 10 years ago and I am still enjoying the crisp sound is producing. I bought another one a month ago to have it just in case the other one goes bad but from what I can see they are very durable and powerful. The high & low frequencies are extremely good for such small device. 100% recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth it's weight It was a birthday present six years ago, & it still impresses people from it's looks to it's sound. I use it for everything from an IPOD dock to my guitar amp to my portable computer speakers. I went so far as to get my wife the go play mini, but my go play is still my favorite. I've done three overseas tours, and the included transformer converts power with no issues. My only gripe is that it won't charge my IPOD touch. If this one ever quits, i'm buying a GoPlay II immeadiately.

I have a Go+ Play but can i use it also with bluetooth ? My Ipod doens't work so good anymore. Or do a need a device for it.

Asked by: Connie 010
The GO+ PLAY II does not offer Bluetooth. However, since it has a 3.5mm aux input, you can plug any non-Bluetooth device to it including your iPod using a 3.5mm audio cable. If you’re having issue with your iPod when connected to it, please make sure that the iPod is seated all the way into the docking station. You can also try to reset your iPod to possibly fix the issue. If none of these things work, please submit a case at www.harmankardon.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

I have a Harman Kardon Go Play that will stop playing for no reason then it won't connect back to our phones. Do you have any suggestions? We just purchased this about 4 months ago. 

Asked by: Mike Campbell
This product has power saving features. If the speaker does not detect an audio signal it will turn off. So, if you have the volume on GO+ PLAY II cranked up, and the volume on your portable device set really low, it is very possible that GO+ PLAY II is not seeing enough of an audio signal to know to stay on. Please try turning the volume on the GO+ PLAY II down a bit, and then crank up the volume on your device to get to the level you desire. This will send a signal to the GO+ PLAY and it should stay on without any issues. If this doesn't help, please submit a request at http://www.harmankardon.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you.
