High-End Audio Luxury by Harman Kardon GLA-55

(Business Wire) Harman Kardon, a division of Harman International today released the GLA-55, a high-end two piece speaker system for
computer, MP3 player and home entertainment use. Offering versatility
in its function, the Harman Kardon GLA-55 is a stylized multimedia
focal point, boasting breathtaking beauty, impeccable sound technology
and functionality. Combining numerous proprietary technologies to
provide the highest audio quality, GLA-55 delivers with astonishing
bass and clear accurate sound in any direction. Offering the very best
of any 2.0 speaker system in today’s market, the GLA-55 integrates
beautifully with home and office décor.

Compatible with virtually any audio device with an analog output, (MP3
and CD players, desktop and laptop computers, satellite radio and other
home audio systems) the GLA-55 belts out high quality audio while
exuding luxury and refinement. From the facets of the bass reflex
enclosure and custom copper tubing, to the powerful bass of its Atlas
woofers and crystal-clear highs of the CMMD®
tweeters, the GLA-55 is an expert in both beauty and sound. The system
delivers with a powerfully tuned digital audio path; the clean and
compact digital amplification coupled with DSP (digital signal
processing) equalization efficiently provides the systems transducers
with cool-running power. For added bass response, the subwoofer output
allows connection to most standalone subwoofer systems. Touch-sensitive
volume controls provides an easy user experience; touch both volume
controls simultaneously to mute the audio output and touch again to
un-mute. From the chrome base to the fully visible audio engine and
port, the clear diamond like design leaves no detail unrefined.

“From inception to final product, Harman’s design and engineering team
worked in tandem to create the aesthetics for GLA-55,” said Christopher
M. Dragon, director of field marketing for the Harman International.
“Our goal was to create a high-end product that not only has stunning
sound and visual appeal, but versatility in its use as well. GLA-55
does just that by delivering pure Harman sound while displaying
simplicity and class.”

“While in the design lab, the creative minds at Harman Kardon were
determined to create an audio system that inspires creativity and
beauty along with great sound,” said Kurt Sollund, vice president of
industrial design for Harman International. “With its unique design and
cut glass motif, we see GLA-55 as a piece of art that will add
aesthetic appeal to any surrounding.”

GLA-55 combines many proprietary technologies to provide the highest quality sound featuring:

Atlas AL and CMMD Transducers
– The CMMD drivers provide accurate high frequencies while capable of
low frequency extension to four octaves compared with traditional
powered tweeters. The Atlas AL driver is capable of nearly 1”
peak-to-peak travel for tight, accurate bass reproduction. This desktop
pairing provides a full rich frequency response from the lowest bass to
highest highs.

Slipstream Port Design
– The GLA-55 port minimizes boundary layer separation providing high
output bass with low distortion, for all to see and hear.

COE (Computer Optimized Equalization)
– The GLA-55 system equalization is computer optimized to provide a
rich, complete sound stage over a wide range of listening positions.

OCT (Optimized Compression Topology)
– The GLA-55 utilizes a proprietary compression technology to insure
clean accurate sound at high output levels.
