HKTS 5 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed with sales team!!! The speakers are acceptable. The same week I bought the system, the next higher system went on sale for lower than I paid. When brought this up in e-mails there was No response. You would think an aggressive sales team would have allowed an upgrade to obtain a loyal customer. Audio is a large part of my life, and I have thousands in equipment. At this point, I am very disappointed.

Does this need an AVR? The description calls it a 'complete system' and 'all you will need' but also recommends an AVReceiver as well.

Asked by: Rarebit
Hi Thank you for your question! Yes you are right - This speaker set doesn't play by it self and it will need amplification. An excellent choice for this speaker set would be Harman/Kardon AVR 161 or 171. Have a nice day.

Could you use this system alone as surround sound?

Asked by: Longtail441
Good morning, To use these speakers as a surround set, you will need a receiver which has the speaker channels for 5.1 surround sound, like our Harman Kardon AVR 151S or AVR 161S If you require further information, please contact us by email on customer.support@harman.com

My surround sound receiver has wattage rating of 100 watts per channel . will do a fine job with these speakers?thanks

Asked by: orionas
The HKTS 5’s Satellite Speakers can safely handle up to 70W of power at 8 ohms. It is not advisable to use this with your 100W per channel amplifier. We recommend that you use a speaker that has a rating of 100W up, like those that are included on the HKTS 16 which can handle up to 120W of power.

Is this system ready to use right out of the box? Or do i need to purchase something else to make it work.

Asked by: mattheww1234
The HKTS 5 needs an amp or an AVR to work, so if you don't have either of the two, you would need to purchase a separate AMP/AVR for the speakers to work.
