What Is Not on the Box

What the brand doesn’t always tell you…

our Verdict

Reviewers admire the bass-heavy sound profile and range of connectivity options on the Harman Kardon Enchant 1300, and they approve it for movies, TV dialogue, and games.

The speaker has a delightful sound output, and editors at Crutchfield say that it gets loud enough to entertain at small indoor gatherings.

Reviewers at Tech Hive adore its impressive 5.0-channel surround system, and testing revealed that it has a phantom setup, delivering movie and gaming sounds from various directions.

A pleasant boomy sound profile will please audiophiles, although it lacks deep extended low-bass out of the box. That said, you can customize the sound settings via the EQ presets or purchase a dedicated subwoofer for this model.

The system boasts room correction and dialogue enhancement for precise customization. However, it lacks a mobile app and doesn’t support Dolby Atmos.

Users who need an app-equipped soundbar should see our Sonos Five review. The Samsung HW-Q80R review presents a louder alternative, while the Hisense HS218 review discusses a more affordable 2.0-channel option.
