Having problems with your Harman Kardon SoundSticks II Computer Speakers ?

Stuttering and the sound breaks

\015 Hi I had this Harman Kardon Sundstick of mine for almost 2 years. It worked perfectly well until today. I just went back from holiday for 6 weeks and I unplugged everything before I left.Now if I just push the volume buttton I can hear stuttering boise from my speakers and if I play music either with lots of base (like hip hop) or noe base but with high volume, the sound breaks, cracks and stutters too. Could you tell me what am I suppose to do now? I bought them in Hong Kong and the warranty expired already. I live in Germany now, where there is no service centre for Harman Kardon. Thank you so much.\015
