The Harmon Kardon
GLA-55 high-end speaker system is now available
in the UK. It has a retail price of £749.99 and
can be purchased from Apple in the UK.
The two-piece speaker system sports a stylized
clear glass design, Atlas woofers and CMMD
tweeters. According to the folks at Harman
Kardan, the GLA-55 features many proprietary
technologies to provide the highest quality sound
° The CMMD drivers provide accurate high
frequencies, but are capable of low-frequency
extension to four octaves; the Atlas AL drivers
are capable of nearly 2,5 cm peak-to-peak travel
for tight, accurate bass reproduction. Their
pairing provides a full, rich frequency response,
from the lowest bass to highest highs.
° Slipstream port design: the GLA-55 port
minimizes boundary layer separation, providing
high-output bass with low distortion.
° COE (Computer-Optimized Equalization) — the
system equalization is computer-optimized to
provide a rich, complete soundstage over a wide
range of listening positions.
° OCT (Optimized Compression Topology) — the
GLA-55 system utilizes a proprietary compression
technology to ensure clean, accurate sound at
high output levels.
The Harman Kardon GLA-55 system is compatible
with desktop computers (all platforms), laptops
and MP3 and portable media players.
