Six months later I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This is not a woofer that blows you away the instant you hook it up; rather it grows on you, much like sophisticated music.
I love the total absence of any controls or switches, which reminds me of the audiophile purists who would never think of equalizing, altering, or doctoring the sounds on their vinyl records. And the sound is so pure and translucent--much like the unit's appearance--that it doesn't call attention to itself. In fact, I often wonder if the thing is working--until I disconnect it. It's contribution is subtle but significant.
One small warning: the unit comes with a bulky, heavy power supply that needs to be factored into decor and installation schemes.
However, be aware of the price. If you go to either the Apple web site or the Harman Kardon web site you will find the list price. For some strange reason JandR wishes to charge substantially more....
It packs quite a punch, especially if you boot into OS9 and set the bass up a little. In OSX, there is no software adjustments availible, but it is set to a decent volume at default.
I am using the iSub with the New iMac and Apple Pro Speakers, they put out a good amount of punch, and the Pro Speakers don't distort as much as they did without the sub.
Only downside is no knob to adjust the bass and no OSX software support (although it plays fine in OSX) Oh, and quit complaining about using a USB port, you have 1 (after mouse) on your keyboard, and two/three on the back.
The low-frequency mini subs of the StudioPro 4 speakers seemed to kick in as soon as the iSub was unplugged. This lead me to the conclusion that the iSub, being connected via USB, cuts off or redirects the lower-frequency sound from the external speakers.
Is there any way the iSub and the mini subs of the external speakers could work simultaneously? Having more speakers playing the lower frequencies would be very favorable and as of now i am leaving the iSub disconnected.
