Chime in: What's your experience so far with Harman Kardon's Invoke speaker?

When it comes to smart speakers, Harman Kardon's Invoke lets Windows fans take advantage of their favorite digital assistant, Cortana. The speaker itself delivers great sound and Cortana is an able helper, allowing it to compete in a market dominated by Google and Amazon.

The Invoke is a solid product that we favorably reviewed, and many people are enjoying what it offers. Windows Central forum member newEDB recently created a thread detailing their exact Invoke experience so far.

Bought one at the Black Friday sale, with enough Microsoft Award points, I paid no penny out of my pocket. I bought the pearl silver edition. I also like the graphite edition. The packaging is different from the ones I saw in those online reviews. The power cord could be a bit longer for my use. I first tried to set it up with my Lumia 950xl. It failed twice because the app crashed...


In a series of follow-up posts, newEDB explains that the sound quality is great, Cortana is an able helper, and it works with plenty of other devices around the home.
