The Harman Kardon Citation MultiBeam 1100 soundbar has 11 speakers, two of which are responsible for high-altitude channels: the new product supports Dolby Atmos. This MultiBeam 1100 differs from its predecessor, MultiBeam 700. The soundbar does not come with a subwoofer – it is believed that the sound is quite self-sufficient. However, adding lows to the MultiBeam 1100 using native Sub or Sub S is not difficult.
You can go further along this path. A Harman Kardon Citation MultiBeam 1100 based system can be upgraded with surround speakers to achieve a 5.1.2 configuration. In addition, the MultiBeam 1100 is equipped with automatic room correction. Another adjustment is an increase in the intelligibility of PureVoice dialogs, a patented proprietary technology that controls the operation of the center channel.
This list of technologies is not exhausted. The MultiBeam 1100 also has streaming capabilities with Apple AirPlay, Alexa Multi-Room Music (MRM) and built-in Chromecast. An HDMI eARC connector is provided for easy integration with a TV. The appearance of the novelty is formed by a solid grill made of natural woolen fabric from the company Kvadrat in gray or black.
In the UK, the Harman Kardon Citation MultiBeam 1100 soundbar costs £800.
