After buying these speakers, there are two extra things that i have had to buy to have a complete home cinema system around these speakers. The first and most important i have had to buy is an amplifier (a pioneer vsx-923-k 7. The second thing i have had to buy was an optical cable, so i could play movies through a usb/ external hard-drive/ watch normal tv/ ps3, and still retain the quality of the sound. *****the end result, i am *****very pleased***** with these speakers because i have not quite managed to play them to the maxim level, (the volume is always in the minus) because i feel i have a duty to my neighbourhood, to act responsible. I will be using these speakers for parties, my own home cinema. Meaning no more going to the cinema. What i need to do next is fix myself a sound proof room, because this is it for me in terms of home cinema for a couple of years at least; if, i am going to fully enjoy my new home cinema with out depriving my neighbours of sleep thats the only way forward, a sound proof room for them. Thank you *****amazon*****, thank you *****, thank you *****harman kardon***** .
Wow so much better then i expected and the sub.

I never write reviews but this is worth it. Have been running with a panasonic 1000watt for a number of years which did the job but could do with being louder for music and fight night etc. This harman kardon system is loud,loud. The kids have to cover their ears once you get it to 50% max volume. I bought a pioneer receiver unit to go with it and the sound has absolutely no distortion or evidence of struggling even maxed out.
Compact , clear and clean sounds. I deal for small rooms and boy that sub can pack a punch.
I can’t really explain about the bass but. Must say for the price i paid, i got more than i asked for. Loud it will go, no distortion whats so ever even as max volume.But what catches you is the surround quality. For the price you pay, these speakers are in a league of their own whether its loudness you after or clarity. I can’t really explain about the bass but the best description i can say about it is that it sounds like thunder; deep, strong and progressive. Good for a feet massage ;-).
Harman/Kardon HKTS 5 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Home Theatre Speaker System – Black : Fantastic and just what you would expect from hk. Hk never let you down, little known but amazing quality. First discovered them in my bmw and they sounded great so thought i would give these a try and not let down at all. Others mention the base that comes out of the woofer – it’s amazing and subtle but very distinct. Highr frewquency is great too and the overall experience is well worth the money. One thing to note – the woofer is ‘active’ (powered) so don’t go plug it into a ‘passive” woofer outlet as it will blow up, if not blow your ears first. Hk need to make this clear in their instuctions as while obvious to those in the know, not everybody will know this. Bought a pioneer vsx 930 amp from richersounds and the experience is really very close to going to the cinema.
