Rated 1 out of 5 by Miguel from adapt harman kardon. sorry but I am not use to write reviews but you must think about this before buying an adapt. The bluetooth on a 8 mt. range directly no obstructuction, has a lot of disconnection. WIFI works fine but. There is not compatibility with my mac, Spotify, air drop or apple music. I am disappointed, not only for the deficient bluetooth. But the software compatibility. I hope harman (witch I own a beautiful AVR receiver) will consider a serious software actualization for wifi use. (add mac availability, not only tablet or phone) I would not recommend this product until software actualization . sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cotija from Works well I bought this blue tooth adapter to use with my old hk receiver. My initial plan had been to just buy a set of cables (3.5mm to rca) and plug my phone directly into receiver. When this unit went on sale I opted to try this out instead to have freedom of having my phone away from receiver. I'm glad I did. Because the adapt is powered , the signal is louder if I use blue tooth vs plugging the phone directly into the receiver. (Plus i have the added convenience of not having to leave phone near receiver)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adamnz 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 1 out of 5 by csh555 from Obvious Design Oversights This was a Christmas gift. I was initially confident that I could make this work, but some of its design oversights are so obvious that it is a burden to use. First obvious issue is that is the power cord is too short, three feet long. Next, although it is supposed to connect with a stereo, it only has 1/8" inputs rather than RCs. Third, despite the fact that this item was released in September, its app has practically no functionality at all. Doesn't allow you to select inputs from the app; app isn't compatible with Spotify, Google play, Pandora, DNLA, or other media servers; isn't powered and won't drive unpowered speakers-despite its vague claims; and doesn't have a DAC so any analog sources sound empty. I am planning on returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by waxies from Would not stay connected I was really unhappy with the Adapt and returned it. The setup isn't complicated but every time it lost the network signal I had to set it up again. It lost the signal five times in one afternoon. Setting it up requires pressing reset on the Adapt and slogging through the HK app. Like a lot of other people I found the app to be pretty clunky and limited. Not what you'd expect from Harman Kardon. I set the Adapt up about 12 feet from my wireless router with no walls in between, it should not be loosing the signal when my Apple TV box is twice as far and it works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MattFromReston 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 S0S3S 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.

What type of output jack does it have? 1/8" stereo ? Is this better than the BTA-10?
The Harman Kardon Adapt is better than BTA-10 since the latter is just an External Bluetooth Adaptor, while the Adapt has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Aux-in capability. You can connect your TV, iPod, DVD or anything via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm mini-jack to your Adapt and the speaker will automatically translate the signal to Wi-Fi and stream it to other Harman Kardon Wireless HD audio products (like the OMNI 10 or OMNI 20) in your house using the Harman Kardon App.

Goedemiddag, Ik heb een HK Omni 10, een HK Omni 20 en een HK Adapt. Nu krijg ik het niet voor elkaar om beide boxen te verbinden met de Adapt. Is dit uberhaupt mogelijk en is er een duidelijke beschrijving te vinden hoe dit werkt? Ik verneem graag.
Hi, Ik kan je het beste aanraden om de Omni producten allen even te resetten en deze opnieuw in de HK Controller app te configureren. Zorg ervoor dat je jouw mobiele apparaat hebt verbonden met een 2.4Ghz WiFi router, en daar ook jouw Omni producten op configureert. Een 5Ghz netwerk met dezelfde naam ( SSID ) als het 2.4Ghz netwerk kan problemen opleveren, dus zorg er voor dat deze netwerken compleet van elkaar gescheiden zijn als jouw router zowel 2.4Ghz, als ook 5Ghz frequenties ondersteunt. Voor meer tips en hulp kan je uiteraard contact opnemen met onze klantenservice.

Does this work with the HK Invoke?
No it does not. The HK Invoke does not have any wired input except for the power source.

I have HK16 and would like to know if I can use this adapt to connect the subwoofer wirelessly? If not, how can I make the subwoofer work wirelessly?
Unfortunately, the Adapt cannot be used to have the subwoofer of the HKTS 16 be wireless. The subwoofer is designed to be connected with a wired connection on the back of an amp or receiver.

I have an Aura Studio 2 & two Onyx Studio 4’s......with the Adapt.....is it possible to use them all together to stream music from say my iPad/iPhone/apple TV? Love the sound of all of them....just would really like to connect them all ...
It's possible to do it.You'll need an Adapt on each speaker,connected to through auxiliary so that you can use the HK Controller app and set the Adapts to play music at the same time.

Hi, I have a Adapt and I would like to know if I can conect 5 speakers Onix mini in the same time
Unfortunately, the Adapt cannot be used to connect five Onyx Mini speakers at the same time to play the same music or simulate surround sound.
