Probably the best (and most expensive) computer speakers on the market
28 January 2012
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.
Summary: Do not be fooled by the beautiful crystal-like appearance into thinking this is all looks and of no utility. In my opinion this is the best speaker in it's category as dedicated pc/laptop speaker (to prevent argument, I know you can build better sound system via home theater setup, but not everyone...
Summary: These speakers replaced a pair of Auedioengine A5's that I have been using. Granted the GLA-55's are quite a bit more expensive, but they are a night and day difference better over the Audioengines. They have a great spectrum of sound reproduction, all the way from the lows to the highs.
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.
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: 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: 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: 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 .
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.
