    I just ordered the Focal Bird 2.1 system and don't know how I missed this but the speakers are not magnetically shielded. What are the consequences of using these within a foot of my iMac?

    Then do not place these close to a CRT monitor. I doubt many people are still using CRT monitors Most have switch to flat screens (LCD)

    Any issues with the safety of the hard drive if close to these speakers' magnetic field? There is also a laptop that will be very close to these. Plus I was wondering if the subwoofer/DAC unit, which is meant to be on the desktop, could cause damage to the laptop's hard drive from vibration. The hard drive is a spinning HD, not an SSD.
    Thanks
