Adapt is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup, works well! My old-school NAD and Jura setup is now belting out sounds streamed from my iPhone. Great sound, very pleased. I was nervous after some reviews of hard to setup, I simply installed the app, plugged it into the aux on the amp and power, hit the button, and it worked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Bad instructions The instructions that come with the device are truly awful. I only got it working by looking at video's on Utube. Now working its fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect but not as bad as some say My setup: Yamaha receiver, Omni 20 and Adapt. This is an early review having only received the Omni products today. I am giving it four stars because I could not do 3.5 and felt the other criticism a bit harsh and wanted to balance things a little. Also, the Omni20 does sound really good - way better than most other Bluetooth speakers by far. For me, a three star product needs to meet certain criteria: advertised functionality works, is reasonably intuitive to use and I can understand the philosophy behind the design approach. The Omni and Controller app meet all these criteria to various degrees and in addition has some other compelling good points. When I bought this setup, I was looking for three things: 1) Cheaper than Sonos 2) Be able to stream music from CD player out to all other Omni products 3) Be able to link one Omni product to iPad Bluetooth and then have it restreamed everywhere. I have successfully tested all three of these and given the complexity involved with doing this I am actually quite pleased. The Party Mode and Link is really cool. I love the volume controller that lets you tweak the volumes in various rooms on a single dashboard. Let me give the bad points now: -The controller app needs better instructions on usability. Any idea what the home icon does? I have no clue and can't find it documented anywhere. I am partially blind in one eye so maybe it's fine print? :) -Searching for music on your system. I have been struggling with this all night. Some songs play and others come up with a useless message saying they can not be played. -The app needs a simple mute button which can be found quickly. Some final thoughts I have are, I suggest having some patience with the app when it searches for products and is doing the background setup. HK appears to be on the right track here. Hopefully newer versions of the app will be easier to use. I am hoping to come back in a few weeks and give an even more favorable follow up review. I want this system to work. Sonos, while a good product, is ridiculously overpriced in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited solution to stream existing equipment Adapt is an inexpensive solution to add your existing stereo to streaming. Fits the bill for me to stream radio to my Omni speakers. Need to turn volume up very high when streaming to your stereo through Adapt. Hope HK upgrades this component to compete with Sonos Connect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It takes some fiddling I have been using Airplay for some years now and I wanted to update the system to something that would allow me to stream to multiple speakers from my mobile. I bought 3 adapt and an Omni 20, it's been almost a month and I'm still trying to figure out the sytem, I set it up and worked fine , then it started to cut off (that has been the standard) I decided to reset the whole thing last weekend and it has been working fine since. It is a shame the app is not useful since it doesn't support Pandora , Spotify or even Itunes Match or Radio and the featured radio stations I find them substandard. Something you need to keep in mind, anytime you reset your router or the system, the volume of the adapt goes all the way up so you can burn the speakers connected to it, it does not happen with the Omni 20.

Can the ADAPT be used with a non-HK speaker, I.E.- any aux input for any receiver or radio? Thanks.

Asked by: khubbard2002
Yes, you can. The Adapt can be used with a non-HK speaker so you can use it via bluetooth or group it together with the HK Omni speakers.

I have the adapt connected via bluetooth to an Echo Dot and via audio out to speakers. All works well except when the I tell Alexa to stop the music, the adapt generates a lot of continuous background noise until another bluetooth signal comes in. Ideas?

Asked by: DannyS
The background noise is very likely a signal being sent from the Echo Dot. A good way for you to find out is to connect another Bluetooth device to the ADAPT, and then try stopping the audio. If the ADAPT generates background noise, the problem is in the ADAPT. But if it is clean and the noise only happens when you stop the Echo Dot, this will confirm that it is the Dot sending the noisy signal. If you have concluded that the Adapt is indeed the one causing the noise, we would like to work with you directly to help you with your issue. Please submit a case request at https://www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Does the V4.1.0 HK Controller iOS app support ADAPT (not the ADAPT+)? I have ADAPT and it cannot be detected by the app anymore.

Asked by: AdaptCH
There should be no problem with the Adapt with the V4.1.0 HK Controller app. I noticed you are in Greece. If you are having problems with the Adapt, please contact the store where you purchased it and they will be able to help, or at least guide you to the people that can help.

Can the ADAPT transfer audio directly from the aux-in to the aux-out? My amplifier has only a single input, so I also like to use the Adapt also as a hub.

Asked by: erikjan85
Yes it can, the Harman/Kardon ADAPT can be used as to get aux inputs and output it through the Aux as well.
