One of the earliest gadget posts I did here was about the Ferguson Hill transparent speakers, which were exceedingly cool but also ridiculously expensive. This next lot of transparent speakers have a similar cool factor with out the second mortgage sort of price tag.
The Harman Kardon Soundsticks II provide a 40 Watt 2.1 sound solution for your PC in a very stylish manner. Unfortunately when reading a review of these in the Sunday Times it’s reported that the sound quality doesn’t live up to their looks. So I’ll need to continue saving the $26,500 for the Ferguson Hills.
If looks matter more than sounds and you’ve got a spare $200 you can get the at least cool looking Soundsticks from Komplett.
