Good sound quality, Bad system.

By Champ114

from Bangkok Thailand

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

I bought two of OMNI 10 and two of OMNI 20 to use in my cafe. OMIN will give you a quality of sound for both 10 & 20. However, it's so annoying that all speakers always loss their signal and you will find difficulty to reconnect it again and It happened everyday !!!! 4-5 times a day, and this is in a cafe with customers. Sometimes 1 speaker disappear somethings 2 speakers disappear. OMG !!! I'm so sick of this. Application also not support Apple Music. If company still cannot fix the issue, don't buy it.

Limited solution to stream existing equipment

By Gogo

from Royal Oak, MI

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

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.

horrible app, poor music service choices

By scffvariable

from St Cloud, MN, United States

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

Just bought today and returning it tomorrow. App is extremely clunky and outdated. No pandora, I heart radio, etc. Also it will not stream from a music server, so all the music has to be on your device. Cant stream different music to different Adapts. Just a really poor implementation. If I could give it zero starts I would. I was trying to find a lower cost solution then the Sonos, but I am going to just bite the bullet and spend the money.

Not perfect but not as bad as some say

By MattFromReston

from Virginia, United States

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

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.

adapt harman kardon. sorry but

By Miguel

from México

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

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.

It takes some fiddling

By S0S3S

from San Francisco, CA, United States

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

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.

Obvious Design Oversights

By csh555

from Philadelphia, PA, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

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.

Would not stay connected

By waxies

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

Comments about Harman Kardon Adapt Wireless HD Audio Adapter:

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.
