Harman/Kardon SoundSticks II

15 March 2005

On a recent trip to the US, I took advantage of the favorable Euro/Dollar exchange rate and picked up a set of Harman/Kardon SoundSticks II. Getting something that looks like this back to Europe through a network of airport security was an interesting experience. "Code 12! Code 12! -- 'at boy's transportin' some sort'uh electromagnetic pulsing dee-vice! Get back, it's probably nuculaar! Open fire, Ray!"

Anyway, they sound awesome! I previously ran my Mac's audio through a cheap little home Hi-Fi system, and, man, what an improvement with these SoundSticks. (BTW, my friend Narayan had the audacity to joke that I've been out of the US too long; that people stopped using the term "Hi-Fi" many years ago. Just for that, I've disallowed him from taking any design inspiration at all from this site for the new version of Etherfarm. That'll teach him.)
