Harman Kardon HKTS 20BQ/230 Review - Features Review


The four identical SAT-TS20 satellites are a two-way sealed design, with a 75mm midrange driver and 19mm soft-dome tweeter, capable of delivering a frequency range of 35Hz up to 20kHz. According to Harman they comfortably handle up to 80W of amplifier power.

Poor dialogue reproduction can completely ruin your enjoyment and understanding of a movie, so the centre speaker makes sure speech gets the boost it needs. It uses two 75mm midrange drivers, plus a 19mm soft-dome tweeter in the middle, plus it’s voice-matched to the satellites to ensure the most coherent sound possible.

The gorgeous HKTS200SUB/230 subwoofer is equipped with a 200W amplifier, a 200mm woofer and an array of controls to tune the bass output. There’s a volume dial, a Bass Boost switch to give low frequencies extra kick, a phase reverse switch and another that controls the power mode – a built-in trigger kick-starts the sub into life when it detects a signal. Connections included a LFE cinch input for connection to the dedicated sub output on your receiver, plus a set of line-level inputs.

It’s possible to mount the satellites and centre on the wall using the supplied brackets, plus optional HTFS 3/E floorstands provide another stylish way to display them. You even get all the cables you need in the box, which means you’re spared the embarrassing dash back to the electrical shop.
