HK SB20 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Soundbar I've ever owned Recently, I replaced my old speakers with this soundbar. And I had no regrets. This sound bar is simply exceptional and really impressive sounding. It played almost all genres of songs really good. It's warm bass, powerful mids, and crystal clear highs handles the job easily. When I watch HD concerts I can't help but pump the volume up because the sound is just so real and immersive; it's like being there in the concert hall. And with the movies? It's bass is really tight and punchy... I can say for myself, as a cinema goer, that the sound coming from this speakers is close to that in movie theatres and sometimes I think it is even better; clear dialogue, powerful explosions, I can even pinpoint where the tiny sounds like bullets ricocheting are. Although, it lacks simple features like indicators for tuning the bass with the remote.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Keine ordentliche Bedienungsanleitung vorhanden - schneller Aufbau - Sound nicht wirklich wie erhofft (kann aber auch an schlechter Positionierung im Raum liegen - allerdings gibt es hierzu auch keinerlei Informationen) - keine ordentliche Bedienungsanleitung --> ich weiß nicht an was es letztendlich wirklich liegt, dass der Klang nicht optimal ist - welche Einstellungsmöglichkeiten bietet die SB20 denn? - Die Tasten auf der Fernbedienung als auch auf der Anlage sind nicht selbsterklärend - optisch macht sie ansonsten einen sehr guten Eindruck - geringe Bauform --> überall anzubringen / aufzustellen - Bluetooth Verbindung hat problemlos funktioniert - Ebenso hat die Anlage sich auch automatisch mit dem Subwoofer verbunden

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Améliore nettement le son du téléviseur Très agréablement surprise par cette barre de son qui est livré avec un caisson de basse et une télécommande ultra compacte. Elle permet d'améliorer nettement le son de l'écran, elle donne la sensation d'immersion en particulier pour les films d action, dont on est fan à la maison. Le son puissant elle est compatible Bluetooth pour connecter la tablette ou le smartphone. Très facile d'utilisation elle est doté d'une sortie HDMI et d'un port USB. Le seul reproche que je peux lui faire c'est que je la trouve trop longue elle est posé sur mon meuble TV et dépasse de plusieurs centimètres

Is it necessary to re-pair the subwoofer after a power failure?

Asked by: JanoSR
Hi Jano, Thank you for your question. Normally turning off and on a subwoofer would make it reconnect with the Soundbar if both of them are already paired together. In case it somehow lost the connection between them then you need to repair again, by pressing the "pair" button on the Soundbar first (located on the back) and shortly after pressing the subwoofer "pairing" button, it takes around 30-45 seconds to have a successful pairing. If you are still experiencing issues with your SB20, then contact our support at customer.support@harman.com

You say that "Harman Volume" has 3 settings - High/Low/Off - how do I know which is active?? You also say that "Sound Feedback" indicates the sending of a command - it beeps when switched, if on or off, I don't know, but nothing more !

Asked by: 2000sj
Hi. Harman Volume's steps are not indicated anywhere, so you must simply discern between the two active states with your ears. Sound Feedback sends out a confirmation tone for some functions only. These are: 1. Bluetooth connected (excluding link lost reconnection). 2. Bluetooth is pairing 3. Sound feedback on/off 4. Max volume.

Kan ik mijn HK SB20 verbinden met mijn PC om muziek te luisteren ?

Asked by: Loetje
Hi Dit hangt af van jouw PC. De meeste PC's hebben een standaard 3.5mm AUX uitgang, welke je kan gebruiken met de analoge ingang op de SB20. Als je een iets geavanceerd systeem hebt, zal deze misschien ook een Optische uitgang hebben voor digitaal geluid, ook deze kan je dan gebruiken met de HK SB20

When I turn off the TV, the SB20 turns off too (orange light), but immediatly the SB20 turns on (White light), even when the TV remains off, so I have to turn off manualy the SB20 (orange light), but after 1 or 2 minutes, it turns on again, with TV off.

Asked by: Antimengar
Hi When your SB20 goes into standby together with your TV, it means a signal gets sent ( HDMI CEC ) from your TV. This works as intended. The SB20 would by itself not power on again, unless it gets a similar CEC command from a device. It may be that, even though the TV appears to be off, there is still some activity on the HDMI port, which triggers the SB20 to power on again. I would suggest that you start with testing this ( manually powering off the SB20, after you power off the TV ) with the CEC function on your TV disabled. If it then doesn't power on automatically after powering off manually, the issue is most likely caused by your TV when CEC is enabled. If you require further information, please contact your local Customer Support team

I'm hesitating to buy this product, I want to know if you see the sound adjustments going up or down when you want more/less sound? Do you see it on the screen?

Asked by: AlexFonCKLTD
Unfortunately, the SB20 does not have on-screen display or display panel to see the sound/audio adjustments.
