Summary: Works well throughout the range; however suffers somewhat in the range of male voices. System takes some perserverance to get hooked up (required optical cable to complete the setup that wasn't mentioned in any of the manuals (TV, amp, or speakers). Once though that process the rest was all good.
Summary: Bought these speakers for my basement to hook up to my new ONKYO receiver. The main reason I bought these speakers was because I could not find a negative review. Everything I read was favourable. Also, ordering these from Amazon saved me 60% compared to the price of the same product at a Big Box store here in Canada. First off, the speakers are very well packaged.
Summary: Love my speakers, i didnt expect them to sound as great as they do. The only thing to me that i didnt pay attention to that i would have liked to have was to have the option to remove the front grills....I love my speakers naked :) its a good thing they sound good! cheers!!
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!!!
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.
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.
Summary: I'm not a technical person so this review won't be technical. However, I can tell you that the sound that comes from these speakers is fantastic! We used to have an "out of the box" surround sound set from Sony and while that sounded good, these sound far superior. The sound is excellent both in digital and analog outputs. There are also a lot of really nice surround sound settings.
Summary: I spent so much time trying to find a 5.1 set up, the problem was none of the subwoofers ever lived up to what I needed. This one however has got depth for days and really rattles a room, it maybe lacks slightly with punch but it still sounds awesome. The two rear speakers are perfect, the two front speakers are identical to the rears but would of benefited from been slightly larger and more powerful and the same goes for the centre speaker...
