Summary: What a subwoofer! Sadly the surround speakers aren't the same quality of the sub. I had 2 extra so decided to use on a seperate system for radis. They sound bad by themselves. The system as a whole, together, is good.
Summary: The time had finally come to get a matched set of speakers for home theater use. I had been using a set of Bose Acoustimass 5 Series, a pair of Polk SDA-2, and a Bose VCS-10 center speaker for years. It was finally time to say goodbe to the old speakers. As we all do, I did my research and my homework and wasn't particularly thrilled by anything in my price range. I was considering the Harman Kardon 18 system but took a look at the HKTS-14.
Summary: After purchasing a new HK receiver I wanted a new 5.1 system. Replacing another 5.1 and 2 tower speakers these sound amazing. The sub seemed to rattle using an rca direct from my ipod, but after using the sub-out from the HK receiver the noise disappeared. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase. I would be willing to compare my home theater system to any high priced set-up.
Summary: MY SYSTEM CONSIST OF Harman Kardon AVR 146 Home Theater Receiver WHICH I PURCHASE DIRECTLY FROM HARMON KARDOM REFURBISH THRU EBAY ( $172.50) , Harman Kardon HKTS 14 6-Piece Loudspeaker System ALSO PURCHASE FROM EBAY HARMON KARDON STORE FOR ( $188.00 )(This is a factory-remanufactured unit carrying the original factory warranty, as do all other items i purchase thru Harmon / kardon Ebay store ) THE FRONT SPEAKERS MOUNTED ON A SET OF Harman Kardon HTFS2 Floor Stands (...
Summary: Have had these for a couple of years now. Work as well as described by others. Problem is whenever I have to go behind the TV, the slightest contact with the front speakers (on stands) causes them to topple over. This had happend several times and now the base of the speakers themselves have separated from the rest of the box.
Summary: These well finished speakers with real metal grills (a consideration around my grandsons) are a classy looking addition to a room. I do hope the black speaker wires are paintable as they certainly are noticable. The only moderate negative is the fussy wall mounting design, just be patient and take your time. The subwoofer is a solid as a rock piece.
Summary: Excellent Bass!! Amazing performance, the coolest thing is the Subwoofer turns to sleep mode when there is no signal from the receiver. I wish I could have brought one more extra speaker that would let me upgrade to 6.1 sometime in the future.
