Billed as being ‘arguably the best 2.0 speaker system ever engineered’, Harman Kardon’s GLA-55 desktop speaker system, which has been designed specifically for use with computers and MP3 players (though their stereo mini jack connection ensures compatibility with any audio device with an analog output) are undoubtedly far removed from you run-of-the-mill desktop speaker setups with their distinctive design and high end components promising ‘impeccable sonic performance’ that’s sure to appeal to audiofiles looking for a compact speaker solution.

Sporting touch sensitive controls, and a separate subwoofer output for those looking for greater emphasis of lower frequencies, the Harman Kardon GLA-55 desktop speakers offer up to 56 watts output per 140x270mm, 1.2kg speaker with a frequency response of 60Hz-20KHz courtesy of 1 x CMMD tweeter and 1 x Atlas AL woofer per satellite paired with DSP equalization and solid chrome plated copper buss bars offering ‘low resistance and signal integrity delivers the signal from the amplifier to the speakers’.

Undoubtedly raising the bar in terms of desktop speaker design and audio output quality, the Harman Kardon GLA-55 Designer High End Desktop Speaker System will set you back just shy of $1000 at the time of writing.
