Summary: I bought this from a gentleman who lives in the same city as I do so I saved on the shipping costs but the REAL DEAL was the awesome speaker system! He told me that I would be impressed with the quality of sound and he was 100% correct. I did get the system at an incredible price so I felt a little bit like a vulture but the music has put my heart and soul at rest. This is one wonderful sound system!
Summary: I had read several reviews for these speakers before I purchased ...most all of them highly favorable of these speakers. When I show them to friends, they are amazed at the sound quality from such small speakers. No, they will not put your expensive home systems to shame ...not at all - but they will fill a small room with excellent, quality sound. I play mine from my PC and source my music through "Pandora One".
Summary: When I started shopping for computer speakers, I wanted something different from all of the bland, black, box-shaped speakers that seem to dominate the market. I definitely found what I was looking for in the SoundSticks II. I was somewhat apprehensive about purchasing speakers online without first testing them, but I have been very pleased with the quality of sound that they produce.
Summary: I love my SoundSticks. They are pleasing to the eye and to the ear. To the eye they are rather sci-fi futuristic. I am listening through them now and my office computer has the audio of an auditorium! The only drawback to this system is you need room for the subwoofer which takes up about a cubic foot. I selected the SoundSticks because of the Harmon Kardon reputation for audio greatness and have not been disappointed.
