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 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 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Surprised I have always wanted Harman Kardon because of the quality and sound. I am extremely disappointed with this SB26 sound bar. There is no in between soft to loud for the volume. Several times we have to shut if off from fast forwarding a program because the volume will stop. Thought it was our Dish DVR so we had it replaced and it still does it. Also, the remote is so small that it is easy to misplace.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Price point good, but product missed I bought two for my new Samsung TVs and had them installed by the retailers professional team. Problems with speaker system was evident from beginning. Connectivity needs improvement because it would not work with expensive remote without constant resetting. Also, the performance was poor as it had no low range volume. It would go from low volume to high volume too quickly. - no low volume range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected! I glad I bought it! I was on the market for something not to big or to small for a ur living room, I listen to different sound systems, but I heard HK on my friends house and I was very surprise on the quality and clarity the movies and music, I had to buy it.... Now that I have it at my house it's amazing......thank you.....mine works perfect....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packs a punch, great sound bar I bought this sound bar to compliment my 4K TV and I have not been disappointed one bit. This bar packs a punch and gives great sound quality even at it's highest levels. The sub woofer gives the added base and punch that every home theater needs, I highly advise others to consider this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Set up Instructions are for people that already know how to set up these things. Very confusing to those of us that are older but still wish to listen to good sound. When it works the system is wonderful, but after 6 months of using it the system will not recognize my I-touch. I have no idea why ???

If we have lost our remote....how do we connect manually from the soundbar or subwoofer to the optical sound? It keeps trying to connect to the Bluetooth and we cannot switch it to the optical to hear our television.

Asked by: giffgt90
Pressing the Bluetooth button will only allow you to switch between Bluetooth and whatever source you had previously selected. Without your remote there is no way to switch between the other inputs. You can purchase a new remote from our Parts Department. The remote part number is 06-0HSB26-RM0. Please submit a request at www.harmankardon.com/contactus. They will gladly help you.

Does this device allow for hdmi pass through to allot for projectors and other such displays?

Asked by: GryphenMerlin85
The SB26 has two HDMI inputs and an HDMI output, to be connected to a display. The sound from the two inputs goes to the soundbar while the video is passed through to the HDMI output and sent to the display/tv.
