This may be a noob question and if it is, bear with me. :)
I've got a pair of M-Audio Studiophile AV-40s that I'm wanting to put on my desk. The product description on Musician's Friend says...
Unchecked, all speakers emit electromagnetic waves that can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. The Studiophile AV 40 monitors are magnetically shielded so that all of your electronic equipment can coexist on your desktop without interference.
It says nothing about hard drives. Is the magnet inside the speaker a danger to my hard drive in close proximity — about 6 inches — or does the shielding protect it?
