HARBETH: P3 amplification

FWIW I did not like the Rega-Harbeth combination. My experience was with the Rega Elicit Mk2. The combination sounded soft, lush and flat, lacking separation, dynamics and detail. The Harbeth sounds more lively with the Naim (202/200 and above as the Nait XS sounds almost the same as the Rega Elicit when matched with the Harbeth). There is more attack in the sound, better separation and macrodynamics with the Naim 202/200. The 282/250 gave an even bolder sound.

Perhaps folks who prefer Rega (with the Harbeth) primarily listen to mellow stuff and vocals.
