A general answer to this question and I will not presume. In the ranks of the three hearing test loaded stainless powered speakers but I can answer the question with “Yes”. In direct switch between the three noble stereo pair, the difference could be heard loud and clear, almost as if someone pull on the way from the Bose B & W to Harman Kardon, a set of curtains.
The B & W MM-1 to outdo the other hand, with a little more rounded bass and softer overall sound. Just as with Bose also its strength clearly lies in the sound of a computer user who placed the boxes next to his screen. Your USB port eliminates the user from the – not always designed to Hi-Fi – sound card in the PC independently.
The hit but the Gla-55 from Harman Kardon. Whether you like it or not the crystal design: The sound that produce extremely eye-catching plastic form, is simply good – if they are set up correctly. The price that the manufacturer requires it, but it has to be. With 799 euros, the transparent boxes are in the price list – but this award requires fortunately hardly a dealer really, they are usually offered at lower rates.Nevertheless, they are still pretty expensive – but you can hear that.
