While they look incredible, I’m not really sure how many people would pay US$999.99 for the new Harman Kardon GLA-55 2.0 Speakers. Maybe for lovers of Swarovski crystals or ice bergs? And they’re only 2.0 speakers too!
Here’s a blurb from the original press release:
Compatible with virtually any audio device with an analog output, (MP3 and CD players, desktop and laptop computers, satellite radio and other home audio systems) the GLA-55 belts out high quality audio while exuding luxury and refinement. From the facets of the bass reflex enclosure and custom copper tubing, to the powerful bass of its Atlas woofers and crystal-clear highs of the CMMD® tweeters, the GLA-55 is an expert in both beauty and sound. The system delivers with a powerfully tuned digital audio path; the clean and compact digital amplification coupled with DSP (digital signal processing) equalization efficiently provides the systems transducers with cool-running power. For added bass response, the subwoofer output allows connection to most standalone subwoofer systems. Touch-sensitive volume controls provides an easy user experience; touch both volume controls simultaneously to mute the audio output and touch again to un-mute. From the chrome base to the fully visible audio engine and port, the clear diamond like design leaves no detail unrefined.
