The newest edition to the Harman Kardon speaker family is a petite desktop speaker that looks like it’s meant to double as a post-modern desk decoration. The Nova Stereo Streaming Sound System is designed to work with all kinds of devices. Everything from tablets and smartphones to streaming devices like Roku and Apple TV. It has analog and optical inputs, along with Bluetooth and NFC functionality to guarantee that the Nova will work with anything capable of playing music. If you want to play music right from your smartphone’s music library, there’s a Harman Kardon app you can download for iOS and Android that will help you do that with the Nova.
And, play music it will. Beneath the transparent exterior you’ll see a turbine housing a woofer, a passive radiator, 2.5” drivers, and 1.25” tweeters. Should make for big sound coming from a relatively small device.
The Nova comes in a set of two, and is available now from Harman Kardon for $300.
