|I went to the Apple store yesterday to buy a headset for skype. I ended up buying the Harmon Kardon speakers I had been looking at on the Apple website.
My last laptop had kickin' little Harmon Kardon speakers so I knew these were the ones for me.
I asked Freck to give me his professional audio opinion. He quickly asked the sales person for the technical specs for the speakers.
I only had to have a listen and look at them in the store to know they would be good for me.
Freck looks at the audio specs. Pauses. "20 watts." "You are paying $10 a watt for these."
They aren't the most powerful speakers, but they look good. Aesthetically they are perfect, and isn't design more important sometimes? I think my hearing may be going anyway.
