Harman Kardon Unveils GLA-55 Speaker System

Harman Kardon's new GLA-55 high-end speaker system is now available to purchase in the UK. Whilst boasting good looks in the form of a stylised clear glass design, the GLA-55 also packs a high-impact audio punch. Crisp soundscapes are delivered through the system's Atlas woofers and crystal-clear CMMD tweeters.

The GLA-55 features many proprietary technologies, including:
- Atlas AL and CMMD Transducers - 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.
- Computer-Optimized Equalization - The system equalization is computer-optimized to provide a rich, complete soundstage over a wide range of listening positions.
- 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. In clear with chrome accents.
