Harman Kardon's Citation smartspeakers will be updated with AirPlay 2 support early this year, according to the latest announcement out of CES 2019.

The addition will let people stream AirPlay audio from an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, whether using Siri or the iOS Control Center. Currently speakers like the Citation 100 support Bluetooth, Spotify, Google Assistant, and Google Cast.

Citation speakers are aimed at the mid- to high-end audio market, and range in cost from the $199.95 for the Citation One to $2,499.95 for a pair of Citation Towers.

Siri options will be relatively limited, letting people push music to a Citation from an Apple device. A full range of commands is available with Google Assistant, such as weather, smarthome control, and general knowledge questions.
