Default Harmon-Kardon... Good?

I've seen Harmon-Kardon speakers and Hardon-Multimedia speakers everywhere, but have not read or heard anythign about them. Alot of machines use them nowadays, and with a name like Harmon-Kardon they HAVE to be good... Right

They are one of the finest quality speakers around. Though I recommend JBL, or BOSE.

Harmon-Kardon and JBL are one in the same. I think we would all prefer bose, tbu those are a little out of most people's price range.

actually bose isn't as good of a speaker as it's seems. it's amazing sound from small speakers, but there in no flat fenquency, good dispersion or neutral sound (quality from a great speaker) from them

I use Paradigm's

That's true, but it feels very realistic

Finally someone agree's with me

Harmon Kardon are good speakers, the major PC speaker company's are probolly Logitech, Harmon Kardon, Altec Lansing and im forgetting 2.

Not really into wimpy PC speakers but if their's technical questions shoot.

Also im running Yamaha YST-M10's until june where im getting Yorkville YSM-1P's

Ok ok, so if you had $150 to spend on speakers (cosmetics are a big thing. They are for a girl, and she loves the way these Hardon's look.)
They need to look like these speakers:

Any ideas?

If you're looking for great quality and sound, I would recommend Cambridge Soundworks.
If you're looking for decent sound/great price.. I would recommend Logitech or Altec Lansing.
