Harman Kardon Soundsticks

Dept. of Mini Sound. This is just a short post to say that we were over at a friend’s on Wooster street and saw that they had these speakers and instead of thinking they were ugly, plastic, too futuristic and excessive, they struck us as oddly beautiful.

The SoundstickII System ($170) is small but capable of loud, clear sound for music, MP3’s, video or any computer hookup. It also has this gobbledy-gook: “a new computer-optimized multi-band parametric equalization and Harman’s unique “capacitance touch” control buttons.” (PS. a few days after we saw them, we noticed them on D*S, and were struck – again – how certain memes circulate at the same time.)
