Summary: I bought this product mainly because of the Harmon Kardon's reputation. I paired this set with a Sony mid class reciever. It is a very nice slick design and suits well into the living room. It was not mind blowing as I expected from Harmon Kardon.. speakers produce good sounds with clarity and I am not impressed with the sub woofer when playing movies. I believe compared to Bose this is still well behind,, but it is half the price of Bose..
