Speakers - HK-20 Harmon Kardon 20
I only had a short time to audition these little gems. My friend had them stowed in his garage for two decades and we brought them down to see if they still had the sound he remembered. According to him, they did. The simplistic construction - notice the glue/putty/adhesive around the tweeter, and the interesting tone controls on the back terminal connectors make these speakers quaint. The sound, makes these speakers something to keep for decades.
How do they sound? Surprisingly natural - much like The Advent Loudspeaker. A little less bass, but quite nice, full, great for small spaces.
If you have any photos or stories about your HK-20 loudspeakers, please leave a comment or send me an email.
