Aura is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds as good as it looks I’ve experienced none of the complaints raised in other reviews. It plays a great orchestra of sound seamlessly from my iPhone XR & iPad Pro, no drop outs, you c an even play from either source (paired simultaneously) but thankyfull not at the same time. I can’t fault this speaker in any form and would recommend you buy one, I’m actually looking for a 2nd one so I can create a better stereo image.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound in such a small package I bought this a few weeeks ago. I’m so impressed with the sound that it delivers. Great highs and plenty of bass. Fills up my entire living room. I only regret that I only bought one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, nice package, good flexibility I bought this for my son who lives at home and commutes to college. This fills most reasonable-sized rooms.The sound is impressive and compares extremely well with a Bose Wave radio (the comparison was done using the auxiliary input on the Bose). The Bluetooth connection posed no problems for any of us trying it out with our phones and computers (Android & iPhone, Windows & Mac). The WiFi connection also worked fine so far on the iPhones and Mac. Haven't yet tried that yet with either Android or Windows. (The Bluetooth worked too well, I guess.) My only regret is that I didn't get a second one for the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound and Bass Is it possible to like the Aura to another HK Bluetooth speaker in a separate room via Bluetooth or WIFI.

Hi, can i pair omni + speakers with this Aura speaker?

Asked by: guti714
Unfortunately, you would not be able to pair the OMNI+&nbsp;speakers with the HK AURA since the latter can only be controlled with the HK Controller app, while the OMNI speakers are supported by the HK Remote app. You can connect an HK ADAPT+ via aux&nbsp;to your HK Aura instead so that it can be grouped with the OMNI+ speakers.

I&rsquo;m told the aura studio 2 can be paired in stereo. Is that correct. How do you do that&nbsp;

Asked by: Steve 55
The Aura Studio does not have a stereo feature. It has the Wireless Dual Sound feature that allows you to play music one Aura Studio 2 speaker, then use the Bluetooth buttons on the first speaker to connect to second Aura Studio 2 speaker with the Bluetooth button and play the same music louder. The resulting music is going to be mono, not stereo.
