Harman-Kardon HS250 review


If you fancy a 2.1 system this appealing setup is well worth a look

Stylish looks ; cohesive, solid sound ; clear, detailed picture quality iPod dock included

Fairly expensive for a 2.1 system ; unintuitive remote and overcomplicated menu system

An appealing set-up that puts a convincing case for promoting 2.1 systems
