Aura is rated 3.7174 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent Product I´m very happy with the quality of this product. Well done HK! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to any Studio I brought this speaker as I had previously brought an older model Onyx. I love the sound and quality of the speaker that I felt the need to add this to my home studio. I am an audiophile and don't buy into the overpriced items endorsed by celebrities. I buy pure audio quality and Harmon Kardon gets it. It does add the 360 room feel without having running wires all over the place. Overall, satisfied with my purchased, and look forward to the future generation of HK products. Just one question, there is another model Aura studio that doesn't feature the AirPlay but does offer a microphone to answer calls, where can people purchase that one?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. Great Vendor. I just received my new speaker. Quite easy to set up. Sound is quite good. My other choice was the B&W A5 or A7. While the sound was much better with the A7, it was twice the price. The Aura supports airplay and Bluetooth. A big plus for me since we have a divided household between Mac and Android. I would buy again. No regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audio Swiss Army Knife Use it for streaming music + hdtv. Only gripe were the instructions for setting up; too cryptic & not helpful enough. Pricey but performance beat expectations.

does the harmon karmon aura speaker have a chargeable built in battery pack, or does it have to be plugged into an electical outlet constantly to work......

Asked by: curious
The AURA is not a portable speaker. With that said, it does not have a battery to power the unit when unplugged. The AURA needs to be plugged in to operate.

The speaker turns on automatically when plugged in and won't turn off unless unplugged. The other buttons do not work at all . HELP

Asked by: Pach21
It would be worth it to try and reset the AURA as it is behaving erratically. To perform the reset, In operational mode(powered ON) press and hold Source and Power buttons for about 6-7 seconds. If the reset did nothing to resolve the issue at hand, i would suggest that you submit a case to our support team at http://www.harmankardon.com/contactus they will gladly assist you on your concern.

The firmware button in the HK Remote app is highlighted. Does this indicate that there is a firmware update? I can't find one online under product support.

Asked by: joeyzr
Pressing the Upgrade option on the App refers you to www.harmankardon.com and search under Support Section.  There's no Upgrade for the Aura under Support Section.  What kind of customer service is this, Joe?

I have connected HK Aura to my PC via the AUX port using a regular audio cable. How do I stop it from going to standby mode? It doesn't wake up after going to standby, and its very annoying to have to turn it on all the time.

Asked by: Edmunds
The AURA goes into standby after a few minutes of not receiving any audio signal from the source or it cannot detect audio signals from the source because the volume is too low for the speakers to detect any audio.You can prevent this from happening again by cranking the volume up to at least 80-90% on your computer and control the volume on the AURA.

I know Aura doesn't sync with other speakers through the HK wireless system - but can through the app control or the HK Adapt, can you sync multiple Aura's? Could you manage them through a Chromecast Audio?

Asked by: ThisGuy
The AURA can only connect with the Remote app and cannot be be connected at the same time to one device. With that said, if you are looking to connect multiple AURA speakers you will need one ADAPT for each AURA. Instead of this setup, why not try the OMNI System. They are designed for multiple speaker synchronization with the help of the Control App.

Hi, my lab is using the HK Aura as a speaker. We each have an iMac that connects to the device through bluetooth. However, we are having a universal problem of the audio skipping no matter where we are streaming from. Any ideas on remedies?

Asked by: Felicity
We have some suggestions to possibly address the issue you're having with the AURA. 1. Please note that if you have a large number of Apps open in your smartphone or tablet, this may block or overtax its processor. Dropouts may result. Try to close all or most active apps. This should solve the problem. 2. Bluetooth signals from smartphones and tablets are not very strong. Make sure that the signal does not have to pass through doors, walls etc. Always maintain a clear line of sight between transmitter and receiver. 3.Under normal circumstances, you can expect a range of 5 meters with no problems, if you follow the above advice. In some instances range is longer, but we cannot promise this. If this doesn't help, please submit a case at http://www.harmankardon.com/contactus and our Customer Service will happily assist you.

I have an Aura Studio.  Can I use the HK app for iPhone to control and adjust EQ and bass etc or is the app more specific only for the Aura with wifi connectivity?

Asked by: PatMelb
At the moment, the HK app is only compatible with network-enabled Harman Kardon products including the AURA. However, being that the AURA STUDIO is not network-enabled, it’s not compatible with this HK app.
