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harman kardon avr 1565 audio/video receiver to replace my ancient sony receiver and wanted to phase out some of my outdated speakers, i scoured the web and read up on the harman kardon hks-9 speakers. i figured these would be a major improvement over my old SHARP speakers i have had for about 15 years. the sound is rich and powerful and fills the entire room, not to mention they're very sleek and stylish as well.
