PM writes … I use the equilateral triangle method for a starting point only and what I wind up with is almost never that. It’s just a starting point. GL writes … Generally a good starting point is an equalactial triangle (speakers equal distance to the distance from a speaker to the listener) if you […]

HARBETH: Is the Harbeth sound possible with high wife acceptance factor?

  Originating in 2014, the points made (well, some of them) are still relevant today, which I why I have included it here. Neil / editor I fell in love today with the Harbeth C7s. Unfortunately, my wife did not. She doesn’t like speakers on stands, she doesn’t like big speakers. But she did like […]

HARBETH: Their M30.1 – how much does it struggle with piano music?

I have a pair of M30.1s that are giving mixed results. Whilst superb with strings and vocals, they struggle with piano and seem to have significant coloration in the lower midrange, where the sound is distinctively ‘tubby’ and ‘boxy’. Do any Harbeth users have any thoughts about this? The speakers are in an 18ftx12ft room, […]

HARBETH: ” …. mind you we would be remiss to remember the true designer Dudley Harwood.”

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 […]

HARBETH: SHL5 driven by Sugden or …..?

I currently have a Sugden Masterclass IA-4 and am considering moving it on for an Accuphase E350… would this be a big mistake? Unfortunately, no way of demoing first. My speakers are Harbeth SHL5 and use Electrocompaniet EMC1UP as source. Are Sugden and Accuphase very different sonically?

HARBETH: Alan Shaw on amplifiers…

From the archives, but still relevant I believe. Neil —//— The latest on this ongoing ‘amps are all the same’ thing on the Harbeth User Group forum – ‘The last word on audio amplifiers – Jan 2015’ http://www.harbeth.co.uk/usergroup/showthread.php?2505-The-last-words-on-audio-amplifiers-Jan-2015[/URL] The comments are getting quite heated on this one but Shaw will not be moved stating that […]

HARBETH: P3ESR vs Proac Tablette Anniversary?

I thought I’d post this mini review I was asked to do on another forum about a comparison of these two competing mini monitors, I know some members here will be interested. I own both so I have no axe to grind when making these comparisons, each has its own virtues and problems. The Proac’s […]

HARBETH: Buying them on-line; beware – your money is at risk

From time to time, Harbeth speakers appear on on-line trading sites. These can be described as “brand new”, “as new condition”, “in sealed cartons”, “unused”, “just tested and repacked” or similar. This post is to caution prospective bargain hunters that they are putting themselves at risk. There is no warranty outside the country of original […]

GRAHAM AUDIO: Reader identifies a viable Harbeth M30 substitute; the Graham Audio LS5/9

We received the following email and we thank the writer Hello Howard, I hope you are well.   I just wanted to pass on a recommendation about a speaker I heard at Bristol last weekend: the Graham Audio LS5/9. It is based on the original LS5/9 design, rather than the BBC production models.  Derek Hughes worked […]
