Great speakers until the chips are down. No product support from Harman.

Summary: These are good units until something goes wrong with them, I have a set which has a small chip at the base of the 'bullet proof' glass. Contact with Harman support was extremely disappointing, they have simply refused to provide any support and carry no spare cabinets for effecting a repair.
Summary: granted rare beast bought them refurbished only 3000 ever made.. after this droped my old stero no more need 4 my 20 year old b&o sytem thes elittle gems ;) well little massivivly beautifull works of art .
Summary: I have these speaker and they're great. The sound is great. I use them for gaming and for whatching movies on PC. Sub is not required, but after a year I bought one from Harman Kardon, and it sounds even better (good for games). In my office I have sound stick, but they don't sounds the same.
Summary: These are just simply amazing. I'm surprised there hasn't been a review on head-fi about these. I've been through 8-10 computer speakers and these are the best for the money.
If you think the Harman Kardon Soundsticks III are good, the GLA-55 (get it? GLA55 looks like glass?) kicks their butt.
Pros: Great treble with accurate dedicated tweeters; Slick looking design; Limited Edition (3000 made only); Has a subwoofer out option
Cons: Kinda expensive, but definitely worth the investment.
Summary: I use these speakers for music production and they are hands-down the best speakers I've ever encountered if clarity is what you are looking for. I've never adjusted the bass but there is a bass adjustment screw on back of the speakers to allow you to double? the bass from the default setting.
Summary: SOund Sticks much better. Also easier to control bass. If gla55 had more sound pressure, ok. Not the case. Only near field. Pain in the neck adjusting the bass, they shouldv provided proper tool for that. Not a good choice. Run from Gla55.
Summary: Both elegant and unparalleled sound quality emits from these "futuristic" luxury sond system. Many users refrain from using proper quality music though these speakers and think they similar to cheaper speakers.
Probably the best (and most expensive) computer speakers on the market

Summary: The sound quality will blow you away. I no longer have to mess with the equalizer because all frequencies are well represented with these speakers. The Atlas excursion is amazing and a sub is not necessary.
