Harman Kardon has introduced the Allure, a high-end Amazon Alexa Smart Assistant speaker. The Allure combines a 360-degree sound system with a transparent design incorporating ambient lighting. The light reacts to voice commands and moves along with the rhythm of the music.

“We’re excited, to integrate with Amazon Alexa to deliver a beautiful speaker with astounding audio coupled with all the intelligent features of Alexa,” said Michael Mauser, President, Lifestyle Audio Division at HARMAN. “Research shows the number one use of digital voice services is music streaming and Allure with its premium sound quality, iconic design, and exceptional voice-enabled technology, will produce a spectacular sound experience while delivering on our promise of elevating a connected life through smart technology.”

“The Allure smart speaker will bring Harman Kardon’s premium audio and the skills available for Amazon Alexa to even more customers,” adds Steve Rabuchin, VP Amazon Alexa. “This is a great benefit for customers who love quality music and want a voice service in their home. Customers can just ask Alexa to play great sounding music, control their smart home, get news or weather, play games, order food, and more.”

The Harman Kardon Allure with Amazon Alexa will retail for £250, and ships “winter 2017.”
