Harman Kardon has unveiled its new Radiance 2400 wireless home audio system. Sporting a striking minimalist design, the 2.1 system comprises two ultra-slim floor-standing speakers, subwoofer and a digital hub.

The Radiance is the first consumer product to feature the brand’s patented Constant Beamwidth Technology. Developed for its professional solutions products, the system uses beam-forming to ensure an entire audience is served with the same audio experience.

The floorstanders each incorporate 24 30.5mm transducers. The sub has a 10-inch driver, and 200W amplifier. Both the floorstanders and the subwoofer are wireless.

The column speakers stand 1.8m tall, and are just 51mm wide and 58mm deep. The lower section tapers to a champagne glass-shaped base, which houses the wireless components and digital amplifiers for the system.

The digital hub, which resembles a small TV set top box, has four HDMI inputs, in addition to Wi-Fi. In addition to Chromecast built-in, it supports Apple AirPlay.

Inside CI had the opportunity to get close to the Radiance 2400, at the brand’s London Harman Explore product showcase this week (stepping in for the cancelled IFA expo), and can confirm its designer credentials. Build quality and materials are unquestionably premium. Unfortunately, there were no sound demos.

Setup is said to be swift and easy, the speakers and sub automatically establishing a connection with the digital hub. Control is via the LCD touch screen or Bluetooth wireless remote supplied.

Harman Kardon says Digital Loop Amplifier technology is used to correct any errors and distortion anomalies that occur in digital amplification.

Years in development, the Radiance system can also be used as part of a larger musical ecosystem, including the Harman Kardon Citation Series.

Available in October, the Harman Kardon Radiance retails for £3999.99
