received mine a few days ago. Set them up.
Bumping some music and the sound is good. Dont forget to tilt them up a bit so you can point the music to your direction. sound good so far. The sub is a bit tough on the bass.. its not soft.. but im not really complaining for 100 bucks. so far so good.

Subwoofer placement in a home theater room is extremely important. Corner load a subwoofer, and you may have spikes at a certain frequency that destroy the sound. Too far from a corner or wall, and you could lose half the efficiency. Subwoofers produce waves, and the distance they travel, or objects they run into, effect the final result. Try putting your sub in a corner, about 6 inches from each wall. Then compare that to putting it out in the middle of the room.

A good amp/receiver and set a speakers would beat this any day. Even at the same price point (not including amp/receiver unless you buy used probably)
For what they are the Harman Kardon is superior in every way other than sheer volume. I genuinely dislike Logitech and think they sound like tv speakers--loud and hollow
It should also be noted that Harman Kardon has always been very conservative in their watt measurement methodology.
Electronics companies (and most audio companies) measure a channel or a speaker at a time and quote the wattage of each speaker as if you would only be using one and at full blast. Harman has always measured a system as a whole, doesn't matter if it is a stereo receiver, 5.1 speaker system or set of computer speakers.
Measuring like this produces far more realistic measurements but far lower numbers than most companies quote. Example: my Harman Kardon 150w stereo amplifier is more powerful than my 250w stereo amp from another brand

I like the Klipsch Pro well enough and I think they are the best consumer sub $100 set around for a family. What I mean is that they are what I would feel comfortable suggesting to anyone for the price.
I'm a fan of Altecs computer speakers but I can't remember exactly what I thought about the Altec Expressionist 2.1. I don't believe I was impressed but since I don't remember I won't say for certain which I think is better.
In my opinion, the z623, or really any Logitech speakers for that matter, are highly over rated. Their speakers in particular are the one area that Logitech hasn't evolved past a cheap peripherals company. I don't find their speakers particularly coloring but they always somehow sound like a cheap boombox . They get loud and they might do that without too much distortion but they have to be pumped full of watts to the point of blaring in order to produce a descent stereo image.
That's my point problem with Logitech. Listening to their speakers makes it clear that they aren't a speaker company. They make loud, descent computer speakers. They don't worry about tuning them and they use a generic driver design that produces inefficient, power hungry speakers that don't open up and produce a true stereo image until they are blasting. Not a fan
As for Harman, I can see why people would choose another brand. If comparing side to side the Soundsticks would probably sound inferior. They just don't blast or rumble like many other pc speakers are expected to at this price point. "Though they do get pretty loud, they shouldn't be used like that) The Soundstickers are truly meant for your desktop, designed to be placed in front and to the sides of you.
But I can say without a doubt that the Harman Kardon speakers are a far superior instrument. Their detail and stereo imaging ability is so far ahead of Logitech that after listening to them for a week a set of z623 sound like built in tv speakers on full blast. Logitech get loud but lack dimension. That's my take anyways.
