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. \n\n2. 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 \ntransmitter and receiver. \n\n3. Do not carry your smartphone in your pocket, if you have dropouts. Your body can act as a screen, reducing the strength of the Bluetooth signal. Put the phone on a table or other surface. \n\n4. Do not walk around while listening. If the transmitter and the receiver are moved in relation to each other, dropouts occur more frequently.\n\n5. 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."},{"attributes":{"type":"FAQ__kav","url":"/services/data/v38.0/sobjects/FAQ__kav/ka0i0000000YWRIAA4"},"Title":"I cannot see my AURA as an AirPlay speaker, what is wrong?","Id":"ka0i0000000YWRIAA4","ArticleNumber":"000005314","ArticleType":"FAQ__kav","Question__c":"I cannot see my AURA as an AirPlay speaker, what is wrong?","Answer__c":"Make sure your source device and AURA are on the same network.

My Aura makes the vocals super quiet and almost inaudible at times. I think maybe it has something to do with tracks mixed in stereo but I could be wrong, I'm no expert. For example: AC/DC's Back in Black, I can hardly hear the vocal. Can I update to fix?

Asked by: SeanPrawn
Hi. There is no update for Aura, and it should have no problem playing stereo signals. But how do you feed the signal to your Aura? If you use Bluetooth, this problem should not happen, especially if you use normal streaming services like Spotify or Tidal. If you use analog input, please check that the plug you use is compatible. You cannot use 4-pole plugs, for instance. If you need additional help in troubleshooting, please contact Harman Helpdesk, which is the best way of getting assistance. Email form, phone number and chat link are found on the HK web shop, under the header Support.

Is it possible to pair two units together to get stereo sound?

Asked by: JosepH48
The HK Aura does not have the feature to connect to another HK Aura. As of this point in time, our Onyx Studio 4s are the only speakers that have this feature (connecting another Onyx Studio 4 to another Onyx Studio 4 with the HK Connect+ feature, then using the HK Connect app to do the stereo setup and the source MUST be Bluetooth, not a wired connection)

Hi is it possible to play my songs from USB thumbdrive when I plugged in my thumbdrive to the USB port on Aura?

Can the Aura be set to not turn off automatically? I have a chromecast audio plugged in and would like the unit to stay on so that music can be casted to it without having to manually turn it on.

Asked by: rainmaker002
The auto off function of aura cannot be disabled. It's a power saver function of it whenever no audio signal is present. To add HK AURA is not designed to play on Chromecast, it can play, but it is not designed.

can i use this as an add on to my projector with aux in, to get better sound on movies??

Asked by: willrock
Hi, Thank you for your question. The AURA can be used together with a TV using analog cable, so I would expect it to work on your projector as well but since we do not promise it will work, I cannot be 100% certain about it. Buy the speaker on our website, then you have 30 days return right in case it does not work.

Is this a suitable speaker for use with a tv (as a primary speaker)? Or is a soundbar recommended instead?

Asked by: callmejosey
The Aura is mainly used to play music from Bluetooth. If you are looking for a speaker to use with the TV then we would recommend a soundbar.
