At the start, engineer Sidney Harman and his boss, Bernard Kardon, were innovators in public-address sound systems. But the company they worked for wasn’t as interested in broadening its horizons and crafting sound systems for homes. So they created their own company, being among the first to offer a simplified receiver for radio signals with high-fidelity reproduction. That model, the Festival D1000, was a huge hit with music lovers, and in the decades since the company hasn’t looked back. Today, it produces an entire range of home audio equipment, including home-theater systems, sound bars, headphones, and Bluetooth speakers.
This is my second HK Onyx speaker. The first was a Studio 2. Both have great and smooth bass response. They can play pretty loudly without distortion as well. They produce a lot of sound from a fairly small footprint. Pairing with various Bluetooth devices was very simple.
