The last hi-fi speaker you'll ever buy. You may never want to replace it.
I just played "Metallica - The Black Album" on my Harbeth Super HL-5... boy oh boy... love the sonics.... fantastic sound. Harbeth SHL-5 timing is just spot on.
The new 7ES-3s must be one of the most MUSICAL speakers around
Super HL5's are unparalleled - let the musical performances speak for themselves without intrusion. I am also continually amazed by their sound-staging and imaging performance, not to mention the realism of the orchestral instruments themselves on good classical recordings. Also, the string sound is the finest I've ever heard, as subtle variations in tone and phrasing are now laid bare. Overall I couldn't be happier with the Harbeths, and consider them to be my best-ever audio purchase.
This speaker sounds almost alive. An incredible piece of engineering!
Easy on the ears and perfectly balanced.
The 5's are not difficult to place. They will equally sing in a smaller room, as well as in a larger.
