Summary: Ordered this speaker system after months of online and in person research on speaker systems between $500 and $1000. I was somewhat apprehensive about purchasing these speakers without listening to them first, but with encouragement from my audiophile brother finally made the purchase. I am extremely happy with the sound and even more impressed with the appearance. The system includes the subwoofer cable, speaker wires, and mounting brackets for all speakers.
Summary: So, i was on the fence to pull the trigger as there are not much user information/reviews online for the current range of hkts systems. But i decided to buy it based on the reviews the predecessor garnered (hkts 18). I was still not sure if made the right choiceor should i have purchased Klipsch HD 500, which has plenty of reviews out there.
Summary: harman kardon makes good products. i trust the name that's why i bought these speakers. was not disappointed. these speakers live up to their name. sound quality is amazing, crisp and clear...just the way satellites should sound. construction is very solid. the only reason i can not give this review 5 stars is the fact that the wall mounts are a bit cheap looking. it's plastic! c'mon harman kardon...really!!!
HK vs. Bose: Better for movie dialog, too much cowbell

Summary: I already owned a Bose Acoustimass 10 speaker system, so when Amazon offered me this for review, I was happy to get out the cube chair and wineglass and make a comparison. I found the Harmon Kardon set to be better for rendering voices, but with some notable deficiencies in other areas. == Satellite speaker response == For the first evaluation, I checked out the response range of just the satellite speakers, using a pair of the Bose vs.
Summary: Well-packaged, and great to look at once unwrapped, with quality construction, and no fabric to worry about. It goes without saying that the sound is an improvement of orders of magnitude over a native TV sound system. You don't realize what you've been missing until you've heard these babies. And then you can't go back.
Summary: We've had this sound system for a while and love it. Aesthetically: These are very pleasing to the eye. The speakers don't stick out in our decor and the subwoofer is compact enough to be out of the way. There's also no fabric on any of the pieces, including the sub woofer, which is a huge plus for people with kids. (My kids ripped our last sub woofer's fabric). The sound comes out the bottom of the sub woofer also, which is also very nice.
Summary: I got these speakers to go with my Home Theater system and I am very pleased. The sound is the same high quality that you get at the Metroplex. We have enjoyed "The Lord of the Rings" and "Star Wars" recently and the effect of the surround sound is awesome. Its like the old 'Sensaround' feature the Movies like 'Earthquake' and 'Midway' had in the 1970's. It's also a great sound for my CD's and listening to FM Stero radio channels.
Summary: First thing, I'm taking over this review for my wife. Since I set it up and know a bit more about this stuff than she does. What we had prior to the Harman speakers were a set from Sony, nothing to elaborate, fairly new. They were more than serviceable, so I thought. The Harman's blew those babies out of the water, interms of both looks and sound quality. Like everyone has stated, setting them up were a pain.
Fantastic look, competent sound...mounting is not robust...

Summary: Summary: These speakers are all about the design. They look faaaabulous. Sound is decent, but I would find it hard to justify them as an upgrade to existing speakers based on sound quality alone. I was very excited to have the opportunity to review these speakers. Our stereo / video setup is a 10+ year old Sony combination surround sound system with tower front speakers, small rear and center satellites, and a sub.
