Harman Kardon’s Aura boasts an artful design reminiscent of the company’s Soundsticks III speakers, only this time all the drivers are housed in a single unit. The Aura has a small footprint--10.8-inches tall and 8.2-inches in diameter. Within that small frame, it houses six mid- to high-range 1.5-inch drivers and a 4.5-inch subwoofer. The unit is powered by 30 watts with 15 watts going to the subwoofer and the other 15 watts split among the six drivers. The Aura employs stereo-widening DSP technology for large, room-filling sound. The Aura supports wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Aura also features optical and 3.5 mm connections and a USB port for firmware updates.
