Update: Feb 2012 I've downgraded this to ONE star, the speakers have now failed 3 TIMES. Am trying to get a refund but Harman UK are bouncing me back to Amazon. Will never buy Harman JBL again.
I bought these speakers as a present for relatives, and whilst I dont particularly like the styling myself they do sound pretty good. They're by no means earth shattering but are ok for day to day use. If you really want something to replace your hi-fi then trust me you need to be spending £100+ on 'fatter' speakers. The BIG DOWNSIDE for me is that the power supply blew after about 6 months use, not a massive deal as it was replaced free of charge BUT i also own a set of JBL radial speakers and exactly the same thing happened to them about a year ago!
