A true and little known fact regarding all of DH's designs was that his strong religious conviction (Plymouth Brethren) precluded him from listening to any music of any form through his designs. Apparently all his designs were quite literally "voiced" using playback of very high quality analogue tape recordings of his beloved wife. Once the voice was as accurate as he could achieve he then handed designs to his BBC colleagues for fine tuning outside of the crucial voice band. It is no accident that even today both his designs and Harbeth's evolution of them are outstanding on voice.
