  2. Data sheet

The iPod was born a nomad nature, to play music in any place of the world. On a dock but he is involved in the truest sense of the word. Harman Kardon has relented and supported the desire for freedom of Portis and its owners with a portable and powered either by battery packs or Sockets power docking station. The matching name: go + play micro.

But the size of the modern Ghettoblaster are not exactly micro. After all, fit two wide strips and a radiating down woofer in the round case with the convenient carrying handle made of steel. As table radio, it makes a good figure, with a little brittle but quite harmonious vote. Only the slightly metallic undertone in the acoustic guitar by Sufjan Stevens disliked the testers. You should not hear it excessively loud. Before but cruder distortion, the electronics switches off anyway prefer.

Embedded in the black plastic sleds have iPod or iPhone good grip, even if you want to wear the around four kilos heavy device around with you. Through the Bank, although access to the touch screen is excellent, but – at least sitting – you can then it no longer see much.

The remote control gives the most important commands to the player: skip, play, next / previous track, and each step in the music menu forward or backward; This scrolling through albums, artists, or playlists. Podcasts can be selected; corresponding video images emits TV connected the Harman to a composite cable .
