Amazing clarity and astonishing bass from beautiful shoebox-sized speakers; the Harbeth P3ESR is the ultimate mini monitor. The clean, clear Harbeth sound, in miniature.
Crafted by a single designer with a remit to create loudspeakers that convey the recording not reinterpret it, there is a consistent musicality across the entire Harbeth range. So the selection of the optimum Harbeth for your system is just a matter of size, power handling, and budget. All models excel at believable, natural, realistic, exciting sound.
The fantastic tonality, the selection and use of the finest materials throughout the speaker, sourced from the best suppliers in the world all combine to promise a lifetime of listening satisfaction and pride of ownership. Harbeth speakers are the best sonic investment money can make.
The Monitor 30.1 is a perfect all-round solution for natural sound in a modest cabinet size and is especially convenient in a wide-range 5-7-11 or Dolby Atmos™ multi-channel sound authoring system.
Natural and accurate sound are essential requirements for a studio monitor. What makes Harbeth speakers so special is that they're uniquely easy to work with. Coloration is very low: the entire audio spectrum is correctly balanced: instruments and voices sound real. Listening fatigue has been designed out.
It's easy to claim that a speaker is a true monitor. In reality, if a speaker has a sonic personality, as many so-called monitors do, it is likely that the sound recording will itself be colored. If the monitor lacks detail, the sound engineer may boost the mid and top frequencies to compensate. If the monitor is bass shy, inappropriate bass will be added to the recording. Confidence in the monitors to 'tell it like it is' is vital if a genuinely high-fidelity sound recording is the objective.
Indeed, few loudspeakers are capable of reproducing the human voice convincingly, but that's a core capability of a Harbeth loudspeaker. If a speaker doesn't sound truly convincing on speech - and most loudspeakers don't - then natural and lifelike music reproduction is impossible.
Harbeth's controlled dispersion and perfect bass/mid/top balance makes them ideal for speech and music monitoring in even sparsely treated and 'live' acoustic environments. Up close and personal they make great nearfield monitors too, thanks to the seamless blending of the drive units. Another Harbeth speciality.
Trusted in live recordings and post-production where balance mistakes are frustrating and can be costly, Harbeth monitors are designed to replay the authentic live sound from the microphones to the sound engineer as-is. Artistic decisions can then be made based on the music, not the characteristics of the speakers.
