SB 26 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Remote control did not work nor on screen display My remote control would barely communicate with my system and after a new battery stopped working completely. My soundbar would not pair up with my tv remote despite carefully following the directions I found on line. There is NO manual included with the product, which is frustrating. My sound bar settings do NOT display on the TV despite being hooked up via the ARC HDMI port. The product simply does not work. To synch to Bluetooth you have to manually press the Bluetooth button on the soundbar vs having that on the remote. My sound bar will be mounted on the wall above a basement stairway and so can't be manually reached. When testing the system by playing music via Bluetooth, the sound output is very good/exceptional but I can't get my tv sound to come out without the remote control to switch sound bar input signal/port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW Great Sound We bought this sound bar and wireless sub woofer and the first hing on TV that night was a Led Zeppelin Concert it performed beyond our expectations. Heavy base and concert ready sound. We have a 10 x 10 foot screen with a projection system it was like being at the concert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound experience I bought this system a few days ago and set it up in about 15 minutes. The instructions are very light but set up is pretty straight forward. I have it hooked up through my Playstation and it is all systems as usual once connected. The sound is amazing. You get to hear new sounds through games and movies that you simply cannot hear through the original TV speakers. There is no sound distortion and the subwoofer provides that deep low needed for Action movies. My test movie was James Bond Skyfall and it makes the movie come alive. You will not be disappointed with Harmon/Kardon, they are above the rest and this unit in my opinion is best quality for the price. I only wish I got this sooner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, clunky controls. I've had Harman Kardon in my last few cars and I've been really happy with their sound. So when it came time to choose a sound bar, HK was an obvious choice. The SB 26 has great sound in a sleek and modern package. I really appreciate its minimalist design in comparison to the other sound bars out there. It has great full range sound, however, it could use some better mid-range sound. I'll have to adjust the settings — if that's possible. What kills me is the volume control. There is this annoyingly wide gap when you turn the volume down. Imagine not being able to go from 3 to 1; it just goes from 3 to mute. This would have been a deal breaker for me if I knew about it before hand. Hopefully, HK will make things right and provide a firmware update for this obvious flaw. Otherwise, I can't recommend this product as the volume function is a basic feature that should just work.

can i use sb26 without electric transformer in south korea? south korea is 220v AC, 60Hz!

Asked by: jakal72
You will need to use a voltage transformer in order to safely use the SB26 as it's rated at 110V.

Har samma problem som flera andra att subwoofern tappar kontakten. Riktigt irriterande. Förstör hela ljudet. Har återställt produkten osv men funkar ej. Går det att få ordning på eller har man slängt 6000 spänn åt skogen?

Hej, även jag har problem med att basen tappar kontakten lite då och då. Finns det någon uppdatering att testa för att lösa problemet? I övrigt fungerar produkten bra och ger fint ljud och bra volym.

Why does the surr button on my soundbar only display white and amber colors that do not show blue?

Asked by: Huy Ton
The surround mode button turns the SB26 system’s Harman Display Surround processing ON and OFF. The surround mode indicator turns amber when Harman Display Surround is active and turns white when Harman Display Surround is not active (normal stereo sound). The Bluetooth icon is the one that has the blue LED when connecting devices to it.

Kan man parkoppla denna till en Onyx Studio 3? Kan man skaffa lösenord på denna SB26? Det känns inte så bra när mina grannar kopplar sin mobil till min högtalare...

Asked by: juliab13
Det går inte att para en SB 26 till en Onyx Studio 3. För att para högtalarna tillsammans skulle de behöva antingen JBL Connect, JBL Connect+, Wireless Dual Sound eller Harman Kardon Connect. SB 26 har inga av dessa funktioner, medan Onyx Studio 3 har Wireless Dual Sound. Det går inte att lägga in ett lösenord för Bluetooth-anslutningen på SB 26. Det enda sättet att förhindra att andra personer parar ihop till din soundbar är att antingen ha en av dina enheter ständigt är parade till den eller koppla ur strömtillförseln till SB 26.

Hej min kontroll är borta hur byter jag från bluetooth parning till hdmi eller optiskt ljud utan kontroll? Finns ju ingen input knapp!?

Asked by: Oskar
Hej Har samma problem!!  Kan man programmera tex tv kontrollen att göra denna funktion? Tycker det känns konstigt att man är tvungen att använda en kontroll son nu är trasig för mig för att en kunna använda denna produkt. Finns det ingen appstyrning alt att ni kan göra en ny uppdatering där man håller in 2 knappar för att få denna funktion.

Hej! När allt är avstängt så startar den av sig själv. Ser det på natten då den röda lampan börjar lysa. Den stänger av sig själv efter en stund för att sedan starta igen. Jag har den kopplad med HDMI ARC mellan Tv och soundbaren.

Asked by: Solholmen
Det kan finnas olika orsaker till detta; det kan vara en Bluetooth enhet som ni har parad till er SB26 som skickar en signal som gör att den startar, kan vara så att TVn får en programvaruuppdatering (detta tar inte TVn från standby, men skickar fortfarande en CEC-signal), eller så kan det vara att det är en AUX-kabel som är ansluten från någon enhet som skickar en signal. Det kan vara flera orsaker till detta. Vi rekommenderar att du kopplar bort alla kablar till SB 26 och lämnar den i vänteläge för att se om problemet fortfarande uppstår. Om det fortfarande skulle hända, vänligen kontakta vår kundtjänst för en felsökning och ytterliga hjälp.
