Listen to a Work of Art
Praised for its stunning design, the Harman Kardon® SoundSticks® II 2.1 Speaker and Subwoofer system became a milestone in harman kardon history when it became part of the permanent collection at New York City's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
Improving on its famous sibling's pop-culture appeal, the SoundSticks III system is all that and much more. As a three-piece, 2.1-channel multimedia sound system, SoundSticks III brings a new level of excitement to music, games and movies to your home; with its exceptional sound clarity, enhanced color scheme and bare minimum of wiring.
Beyond its eye-catching appeal, SoundSticks III continues to be incredibly capable – with 40 watts (RMS) of dazzling amplification, a down-firing powered subwoofer, eight full-range transducers and compatibility with all sorts of multimedia devices. As the sublime sequel to a prized performer, SoundSticks III is performance art at its finest.
Inspiring Industrial Design
Few multimedia sound systems can boast that their predecessor was part of the permanent collection at New York City's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), but that's exactly the claim the SoundSticks III speaker system can make. Taking its older sibling's celebrated design even further, the SoundSticks III look is cutting-edge with a modern industrial design aesthetic, elegant black accents and a luminescent white LED glow. And though the SoundSticks III system may look like a visitor from the future with its transparent speaker covers, its exceptional performance makes it a more-than-worthy encore to its pop-culture predecessor.
Realistic, room-filling sound and outstanding bass performance
Technically, the SoundSticks III system is "multimedia," but once you hear it perform, you'll realize it could easily become your primary audio system. With 40 watts (RMS) of amplification producing rich, realistic sound, SoundSticks III offers strong bass output that makes all your music sound great – no matter where the audio is coming from. And with down-firing subwoofer amplifiers matched to the individual speakers, you can rest assured that each speaker will get exactly what it needs to deliver a consistent, optimal performance.
Connect to virtually any media device
Other than its stunning good looks, the SoundSticks III system offers excellent compatibility with other audio components. Thanks to its 3.5mm stereo audio connection, SoundSticks III speakers can be used with MP3 players, portable CD players, computers and almost anything with stereo line-level outputs. By offering you this user-friendly option, SoundSticks III becomes a nimble addition to your desktop, bookshelf or entertainment center, keeping your life simple with a maximum of connection options – and a bare minimum of wiring.
Touch controls for volume and mute
The SoundSticks III system makes it easy for you to interact with your subwoofer and "sticks," offering sensitive touch controls for raising, lowering or muting the system volume. By responding to the gentle touch of your fingertip, this intuitive design feature makes your SoundSticks III system easy to operate, and keeps this work of audio "art" in the best possible condition.
Down-firing subwoofer with volume control
In addition to 40 watts (RMS) of amplification, the SoundSticks III system also features a six-inch down-firing subwoofer with volume control. By aiming sound down instead of at surrounding walls, your subwoofer makes your system less susceptible to adverse room variables – giving you a consistent performance. The subwoofer also has a flared port that reduces port noise during high-volume passages. This feature helps you tailor sound levels based on your room's specifications as well as your own listening preferences.
Fill the room with eight full-range transducers
The harman kardon brand has a rich history of engineering sound with highly regarded results. The SoundSticks III system is no different, coming with eight full-range transducers (four in each speaker) and deftly filling your room with great sound, while increasing your power handling and audio output. With less distortion and better sound quality, SoundSticks III speakers ensure that you'll hear music or video exactly the way the composer intended.
