Harman Kardon Omni 20 - buzzing/distortion


Novice Member
Hi Guys,

I am running a full set of Harman Kardon Omni speakers, however I have been having issues with the Omni 20s. Both have started buzzing and distorting. This happens when placed as a pair, and I have tried them both individually and although they start off ok, after some listening the buzzing , and distortion comes back. I have tried numerous hard resets, and the same thing keeps happening.

The fact that both speakers act the same way makes me think this is a software as opposed a hardware issue. HKs customer service has not been a huge amount of help, so I was just wondering whether anybody else has had a similar problem or might have some ideas for a solution.

I'm experiencing exactly the same issues today. Everything starts off ok but then the output is just distorted and noisy - over bluetooth and auxiliary
