Harman Kardon SoundSticks Wireless Bluetooth Enabled 2.1 Speaker System
Product Description:
Integrated Bluetooth technology for high performance wireless connectivity
6-Inch (150mm) down-firing subwoofer for deep bass
Eight full-range transducers for crystal clear sound
Elegant touch controls for volume and mute
Awe-inspiring industrial design
1/8-Inch (3.5mm) stereo audio connection

The Harman Kardon SoundSticks Wireless speaker system evolved from the SoundSticks II that now resides in the permanent collection of MoMA. Taking the inspired design of its elder, Harman Kardon engineers improved the aesthetic with slight visual enhancements, and added Bluetooth technology for a more seamless listening experience. Featuring a six-inch subwoofer, eight full-range drivers and 40 watts of amplification, the SoundSticks Wireless delivers the same beautiful sound and pop-culture appeal as its predecessor, only now you can seamlessly stream audio from any of your favorite Bluetooth-enabled devices be it your iPhone, iPad, laptop, tablet or MP3 player.

I have owned half a dozen home theaters and compact music systems till date and this one beats all of them out of the water hands down. Some of them where 4 times the cost of this. HK does justice to its name and I am 100% happy with my purchase. If anyone out there looking for a compact but unconventional system (not the usual box type looks) for your gadgets via Bluetooth, this is the one.

Got it via Amazon. Costed around 15k.

I have a 18 year old Sony home audio system. It has served me well with a couple of repairs, last one being 5 years back.

It has started malfunctioning. it keeps switching modes on its own - CD > Tape > Radio > MD (external input). As you all might have guessed, I use it only in the MD mode as its connected to my PC and works as my home theater. Sony service recommed to buy a new one as the replacement pcb will cost about 8-9k.

Now, I can go for a 2.1 speaker system but it pains me to simply junk this trusted old servant. So my question is - Can I salvage anything out of it? Maybe, just the speakers? Maybe, I can buy some cheap amp off amazon and hook them up?

Please suggest.

MODS - I could not find a better thread. Please move this if its incorrect.

I got Creative 2.1 speakers for my PC a few months back.

Perfect speakers, loud enough with punchy bass and crisp vocals. Offers maximum value for money!

technically it is possible to bypass the preamp and hook a wire directly to the amplifier section. you'll not be able to use volume control

Then I'm afraid it is out of your capability even if i tell it how

Just take it to a local audio video service guy, and tell him that you want to bypass the pre board and connect a headphone/RCA jack directly to the amp board. Hopefully if he is competent, he should be able to pull it off

+1 for these HK Speakers

I've owned many Hi-Fi systems over the years, bought this HK Soundsticks Wireless speaker system a while ago and very impressed with it too, has got be the best bang for buck you can currently get - can recommend highly.

BTW, the aesthetic design was done by Jony Ive from the Apple iMac, iPod etc fame.
