The First Audiophile
Quality Sound System for Multimedia Devices
After years of relentless advancement in the power and sophistication of
computers,digital audio players, video consoles and other entertainment devices,
multimedia audiohas finally caught up. The Harman Kardon GLA-55 audio system
brings impeccable sonic performance, stunning design and exquisite craftsmanship
to the desktop forthe first time, forever raising expectations of what
multimedia sound can be.
Just a touch increases or decreases the volume. Touch both volume controls
simultaneously to mute; touch again to unmute. An LED on the front of each
speaker lets you know when the system is on, in standby, or muted.
The GLA-55 speaker system is compatible with virtually any audio device with an
analog output. A stereo mini jack connection
allows you to enjoy the ultimate audio performance from a variety of devices
such as desktop and laptop computers (all
platforms), MP3 players and CD players.
Advanced Technology for the Audiophile
Digital Amplification and Sound Processing.
GLA-55 transducers (1) are driven by 112 watts (56 per channel) of cool-running
onboard digital amplification with
DSP (digital sound processing) equalization. A chrome-plated, solid-copper bus
delivers the signal from the amplifier
to the speakers with minimal resistance and signal loss. An integrated heatsink
and fully shielded amp enclosure
eliminate the potential for electrical interference.
Atlas™ AL Woofers.
Engineered specifically for GLA-55, the 3" Atlas aluminum-cone woofer (2) is
capable of peak-to-peak
excursions of nearly an inch. That’s equivalent to woofers six times as large,
delivering remarkably tight,
accurate bass reproduction.
CMMD® Lite Tweeters.
Featuring the same edge-driven Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (CMMD) dome
tweeter (3) found in high-end
Harman Kardon loudspeakers and home theater systems, the GLA-55 takes multimedia
audio to a new high,
with linear response to 20kHz.
Slipstream Port Design.
All bass ports reduce distortion by venting the internal pressure created in the
normal movement of woofer cones.
But the revolutionary shape of the GLA-55’s Slipstream port (4) provides more
surface area outside the enclosure than
conventional cylindrical ports, creating an “adverse pressure gradient.” That
increases bass output with greatly
reduced port noise and distortion.
