Summary: I am testing the Harman Kardon subwoofers when I came across this speaker. It gave out very good mids and mid-highs which my JBL ES80 standing speaker is lacking. I put them together for my NR818 and I can hear some improvements in the music playback.
Summary: Pro's: They sound fine & they're compact. I can occasionally hear them stand out as the surround back speakers in a 5.1 surround setup. Cons: The mounting design is ATROCIOUS! I can't believe someone at HK thought this would be a good way to mount a speaker.
incredible sound,stylish and the perfect addition to any harman kardon receiver

Summary: just recently purchased a refurbished harman kardon avr 1565 audio/video receiver to replace my ancient sony receiver and wanted to phase out some of my outdated speakers, i scoured the web and read up on the harman kardon hks-9 speakers.
Summary: I am using these as the surrounds and back surrounds for a 7.1 system and the fronts are Aperion 6B's and a 6C. At first I was worried about the HK's not being able to hang, but they are not being overpowered at all (I'm like 90/10 movies to music).
