Summary: I absolutely love these speakers…I replaced a Pinnacle system with these and am beyond happy with them. They look & sound sharp and match my HK AVR1700 beautifully. I can't comment on the HK subwoofer, however, as I decided to stick with my old sub (love that thing).
Subwoofer Failed on First Day - Replacement Parts Unavailable

Summary: Note - I purchased this system direct from HK, not Amazon. I have only had excellent customer service from Amazon & wished I'd bought it from them, I'm sure they would have resolved my issue to my satisfaction. Upon receiving this system from HK, I tested it an all worked fine. I went ahead & installed the satellites to wall & routed cables thru walls, etc. After the install, the sub woofer failed and would not turn on.
Summary: Bought this system for $400 a few months ago and have been using it since. For the money, it really is an excellent speaker system. Sound clarity is very very good; treble is clear and crisp; bass is pronounced and tight without sounding muffled or boomy. These compare well to the Polk RM85 system I had years ago. That system cost me $700, including the subwoofer.
Summary: If you purchase this and plan to install it yourself, here is what you need to know -- that the manufacturer doesn't tell you in the installation manual. Deploying the sub-woofer in anything but a very small room will require you to purchase two types of extension cables that are not included. The first is a standard RCA cable -- easy enough to find.
Summary: I have recently purchased this speaker and having them for a month now. Looks and sounds great. I would recommend. I have attached it to Pioneer and the sound quality is awesome and base is really good for my apartment.
