Harman Kardon’s new Dolby Atmos soundbar bests Sonos Arc by avoiding its biggest flaws

Harman Kardon has announced the Citation MultiBeam 1100, a Dolby Atmos soundbar with a name like a weapon Judge Dredd would wield. It features 11 built-in speaker drivers for precise audio positioning, delivering 630W of audio, and its 45.2-inch/1,150mm width makes it ideal for the best 55-inch TVs and bigger.

With a price of £799 (around $990 / AU$1,400) for its May launch in the UK and Europe (it’s expected to arrive in Australia later, but isn’t currently planned for a US launch), it’s taking aim directly at the Sonos Arc, which also uses 11 speakers to create Dolby Atmos audio, but costs a little more.
