Summary: The speakers looked nice and sounded great for what they are but my sets left speaker stopped working after 6 months. The cable that is hard wired to the subwoofer is defective so off to the shop they go. Harmon support is terrible.
Summary: I found the HK Soundsticks III to be an average set of 2.1 speaker systems. The treble is non-existent and the bass is average. Besides, the speakers aren't loud enough if you like your music to thump. I would recommend Klipsch or Edifier over these.
