They look similar to my Blueroom Minipods (MSRP $480) which sounds fantastic. I wouldn't be surprised if HK was able to design a good sounding set of speakers. They have made awesome speakers in the past (way in the past, but regardless...). Here's a pic of the bluerooms...
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.
