Get high-performance sound with intelligent equalization (EQ) technology.
The harman kardon Go + Play™ II system is computer-optimized to produce an all-encompassing, 360-degree soundstage. With intelligent equalization (EQ) technology in place to improve stereo imaging greatly, the harman kardon Go + Play II delivers a powerfully tuned digital audio path that ultimately leads to unsurpassed precision in terms of performance. With clean, compact digital amplification coupled with digital signal processing (DSP), the harman kardon Go + Play II employs one algorithm that optimizes system dynamics and bass impact in AC-power mode - and another to minimize distortion during battery operation. This is just a fancy way of saying that this system sounds great, no matter which mode you play it in.
Get richer sound with bi-amplification.
Better sound, greater efficiency and cutting-edge technology that's simple to use: That's the harman kardon® promise and one reason why bi-amplification is a perfect fit for the harman kardon Go + Play™ II. Using bi-amplification, the harman kardon Go + Play II woofers and tweeters are independently amplified for exceptional richness and clarity of sound. By amplifying the woofers and tweeters separately, the harman kardon Go + Play II cuts no corners, delivering the kind of sharp, efficient, optimal sound quality you expect from harman kardon products - far exceeding other companies' products in this category.
Big bass. Minimal distortion.
A rich, full spectrum of sound and a tight, thunderous bass that consistently fills up the soundstage: That's what the harman kardon Go + Play™ II delivers in the realm of advanced technologies. For example, two Atlas™ woofers produce extended bass performance with minimal distortion, while two Odyssey® tweeters project powerful musical details over a wide listening area - giving your harman kardon Go + Play II exceptional range that most other portable loudspeakers can only dream of. No matter how and where you play this luxurious, high-end boom box, the sound will always set it apart.
Get smarter with an RF remote control.
The harman kardon Go + Play™ II system offers you infinite control by including a smart RF remote for two-way communication and superior signal reception. In Music mode, the remote lets you adjust volume, change tracks and fast-forward or reverse through songs from across the room - up to 29 feet (9 meters) away. In Navigation mode, you get full iPod or iPhone functionality, which allows you to browse by song, artist or album - as well as select playlists, slide shows and videos - as if you were holding your iPod or iPhone device in your hand.
Works with batteries or AC power.
Whether you're at home or on the run, the harman kardon Go + Play™ II works with battery power (eight type-D alkaline batteries) or with AC power if you simply plug it into a wall outlet. And when it's in AC mode, the harman kardon Go + Play II never uses battery power - and it keeps your iPhone or iPod device charged and ready to go. The battery-power feature offers you the convenience of taking your harman kardon Go + Play II to any adventurous destination without relying on electricity - be it to a beach, a park or wherever your imagination takes you.
