“Only Wonderful”

I was going back and forth with buying those speakers, but once I saw it had been paired with a Yamaha Amp, I couldnt say no. I essentially got the amp for free. After expecting its arrival, and checking the tracking details every hour it had finally arrived.The speakers had been sealed in a very protective packaging. Wrapped in lace and cloth, the speakers had a certain sparkle to them. The sub-woofer also came from its own different box.Setting these poor boys up was a breeze. The speaker cables were perfect length, perhaps a bit long, but I have a more compact living room.Now the sound. I hooked these up to my brand new Yamaha amp (that I got for free!) , and these men shock my entire flat. I took the advice to check those with Black Knight, and I had been only amazed.Overall, these speakers paired with the Yamaha 667 Amp really are an incredible deal. I was skeptical spending $700 on a sound platform, but it was the best $700 I’ve spent

“Mind Blowing, Awesome, Amazing, Fantastic…. ”

Allow me to tell you right away that this Harman Kardon speaker bundle has high quality written all over it. Right from the fantastic packaging to the individual speaker/sub-woofer structure and overall appearance, everything is immaculate. And the audio quality is really mind blowing based on the other reviewers.As standard I got this packed with the characteristic rich Yamaha RX-V667 as a portion of the current Amazon advertising. The Yamaha receiver has so many features I am yet to explore nearly all of these and will come up with a separate review shortly. However, my first impression is very good and it does all perfectly I expected from it. Thus far I have generally used just Sony HTIBs as home theater choice. To be frank I am no audiophile and has been pretty happy with them. Infact one month back only I bought the Sony HT-SS370 out of Costco to replace a 5 year old Sony HTIB . Additionally, it has excellent reviews in Amazon and I was pretty satisfied with it. However I then came across the Home theater promotion currently on Amazon, I decided to take the plunge to find put how much better could these expensive home theaters seem when compared to my all-around economical Sony. After going through each of the options, the Yamaha-Harman combo appealed the most to me(based on the glowing reviews here and everywhere) and was also only about in my budget.I must tell you its a different experience entirely. These speakers can produce such intricate and delicate sounds from my films and music that I was totally unaware of previously. Likely my Sony speakers are somewhat louder than the Harman at comparable volumes but if you consider noise clarity and crispness there is no comparison. I played with the Avatar BlueRay and believe me during the jungle scenes that I could hear specific noises that I never even heard at the 3D Film theater. It made me feel as if I had been physically present there with sounds coming from all possible directions. The sexy-looking powered sub-woofer has enough juice to stone a standard 15 from 15 room. At moderate high volume it started shaking all my windows and doors and my wife got so nervous that our neighbors will come out whining that I had to reduce it down. I also tried playing lots of music (mainly English Classics and Bollywood film tunes) and I was extremely satisfied with the outcome. Low, mid and high frequencies were coming out crisp and obviously. I believe the Yamaha receiver also has a big hand behind this though.Overall this system is a winner and anybody looking for top quality home-theater system should think about this Amazon special combo. My Sony HT-SS370 is going back to the Costco warehouse now and I am extremely happy even after spending 4 times the cost for this particular Yamaha/Harman combo.
