The best harman kardon® 5.1-channel speaker package takes your movies one step closer to reality. Dual flat-panel midrange drivers in the satellite and center speakers reduce distortion and unwanted reflections, so movie dialogue, music and sound effects sound clear and realistic. The 200-watt subwoofer is powerful enough to bring you right into the film's action, yet it is compact and unobtrusive enough to fit just about anywhere.
For more than 50 years, harman kardon® audio experts have - through extraordinary industrial design, innovative technologies and meticulous engineering - created products to deliver the ultimate listening experience. From the world's very first high-fidelity receiver in 1954 to high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design (still used today) to the most advanced, high-definition A/V receivers, the harman kardon brand has led the way to the finest audio and video quality possible. With a complete package of performance, design, flexibility and ease of use, harman kardon products are perfect for all the sounds and visuals that modern, high-definition digital content has to offer. So treat yourself to the ultimate at-home listening experience - one that only a harman kardon system can provide.
Exceptional sound quality takes advanced engineering, and the new HKTS 60 is the most advanced speaker package ever made for the harman kardon® brand. To deliver the ultimate listening experience for today's high-definition entertainment, the HKTS 60 satellites and subwoofer have gone through the world-class harman kardon engineering and design process. This process ensures the HKTS 60 system will perform better than even the best speaker systems, while still staying affordable.
Using advanced flat-driver technology, the HKTS 60 satellites deliver a rich, high-end sound unheard of from a package its size.
It all starts with a 1-inch dome tweeter in each satellite that is made of HARMAN's advanced CMMD® Lite material. CMMD Lite is a sandwich of aluminum and ceramic, which creates a tweeter that is extremely strong yet lightweight, so it can reproduce high frequencies with incredible detail, accuracy and clarity. Each tweeter rests in the advanced harman kardon constant directivity waveguide. Simply put, this waveguide ensures an incredibly wide stereo image over a large listening area.
Each satellite uses dual 3-inch flat-diaphragm midrange drivers. Their honeycomb design ensures that the drivers are very lightweight while the "skin" of carbon fiber on either side guarantees the strength needed to accurately react to the signal from your music or movies. This results in mid-bass response that is smooth and vocals that are reproduced with increased realism. With the flat-diaphragm design, the HKTS 60 uses the same flagship driver technology that you might find in a high-end audiophile loudspeaker. By using flat diaphragms, the HKTS 60 improves imaging and tonal balance while delivering a huge, spacious soundstage over a wide listening area. Add that all five speakers are tonally matched, and you will be seamlessly surrounded in sound worthy of even the best home theater speaker system.
No high-performance home theater would be complete without a powered subwoofer, and advanced harman kardon speaker technology carries over to delivering room-shaking bass from a small package.
The HKTS 60 uses an ultra-ridgid, high-excursion 8-inch woofer powered by a muscular 200-watt amplifier. The woofer's rigid design allows it to move but hold its shape without bending. And since the woofer is relatively small, the HKTS 60 can deliver deep, substantial bass from a sleek, compact cabinet. The HKTS 60 also uses a specially designed bass-boost circuit with DSP. Along with the phase switch level control, you can enhance the HKTS 60 subwoofer to your preference.
The result is maximum movement with minimum distortion - and a home theater experience that you don't just hear but also feel.
Whether you do it yourself or a professional does it for you, the HKTS 60 is easy to set up and wire.
When it comes to connecting the powered subwoofer, its line-level LFE (low-frequency effects) connection easily connects to today's 5.1- and 7.1-channel surround-sound receivers. The LFE input even has an "audio sense" circuit to turn itself off automatically when you're not using it.
Optional floor stands (HTFS 3) are available for the satellites. And if you're using the included wall brackets, you can attach them effortlessly to the bottom of each satellite and rotate them so you can precisely dial in the best speaker placement.
