Expert Review


The HKTS 11 is a truly fantastic set of speakers. The quality of the audio is exceptional, and for those that can afford it, it's well worth checking out.

Incredibly clear and well-defined audio across the entire range and up to the highest volumes, floor-shaking bass, attractive design

Notes occasionally don't linger long enough in more contemplative musical pieces, bass tends towards distortion at its highest levels, expensive

Very good 5.1 set


After reading many reviews finnally settled with this set against the Bose Homestyle V20, and boy I was so glad I did. Yes this is only a speaker set and you have to buy a seperate reciever to reveal its full potential, and yes the look isn't as...

The wall mount for the speakers is poorly designed... very difficult to install

Great speakers, Great value


I purchased this with the HK AVR Receiver, and they work together beautifully. I did have a bit of trouble setting it up, but that's due to my inexperience with stereo systems, not at all because of the products.

This is my first home stereo speaker set, and I am definitely pleased. Not only does my regular television sound better than it ever has, but my xbox 360 gaming has become more enjoyable. Rock Band has never sounded so good! The subwoofer is larger...

I can't turn it up very far without disrupting my neighbors... can't wait to move out of my apartment. As far as the product goes, I've experienced no cons so far

Quite good for the money!


Just to be clear, when I say "excellent", I'm making a value comparison with other sets in this price range. There are better speakers for much more money, but for the average user these will do quite nicely! It's tough to find professional reviews on...

Speakers run the pricing gambit from several hundred to several thousands of dollars, but for the money these ones are tough to beat. Once properly set-up and calibrated they provide a rich, deep sound, and with the proper input totally envelop you...

The woofer is a little larger than I was expecting, but has a nice glossy black finish and can be placed most anywhere. I like having it out in full view, but not everyone might

Good bang for the buck


For the price, you cant go wrong with this set.

Very nice package. Looks great. surround speakers sound great and subwoofer rocks the house

Mounting system not well thought out. Brackets do not come with screws and seems to be designed for wall mount rather than ceilings. My house has prewiring in the ceilings so thats where I put the speakers. in then end the it worked out ok but the...

Sounds Great


I use this as my computer speaker setup. Better than any pre-packaged computer speaker setup I've owned. I have the speakers wall mounted. I bought this with the AVR-146 and it's a great computer gaming setup. It can also be a great home theater setup...

Great sound. Big heavy subwoofer sounds superb. Includes wall-mounting hardware

Wall mounting hardware could have been of a little better quality. Once mounted on wall, speakers can be adjusted left or right, but not up or down. Had to buy an additional mount for the center speaker in order to get it to point downwards. Wire...

sounds great!


This model was replaced by the HKTS 18 speaker systems, but I think they are pretty much the same.

the sub rocks. The speakers all sound very good. For the price, this is hard to beat

the wiring seems a little thin. The wall mounts don't come with screws!!?? You have to buy your own screws to mount them. The mounting system is not very flexible
