Here is a premium home speaker with superior sound coupled with Microsoft’s Cortana

More and more home speakers are hitting the market and providing competition for Google’s Home and Amazon’s Echo. 

This new home speaker by Harmon Kardon comes in graphite and pearl silver and features the Microsoft Cortana personal assistant.

You get the same voice-activated method of interaction in this speaker as you do with the other high-end speakers on the market.

In addition, there is a powerful 360° sound delivered from 3 woofers, 3 tweeters, and 2 passive radiators. You can use your voice to easily turn the volume up or down, or start and stop tracks.

As with the other speaker systems, you can speak and get answers to questions, manage your schedule, set and receive reminders, and much more.
