"...the 5s are not tricky to place. They will equally sing in a smaller room, as well as in a larger. Thanos in Athens.
"Super HL5's are unparalleled - let the musical performances speak for themselves without intrusion. I am also continually amazed by their soundstaging 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." Alan W, USA.
HL Compact 7ES-3
"The new 7ES-3s must be one of the most MUSICAL speakers around", Manos, Greece.

The biggest single UK customer is the BBC which uses Harbeth speakers for critical broadcast monitoring and quality control in its studios both here and in news bureaux around the world.
"They fill the room completely with their distinctively musical sound, even with something like the Mahler 8 or the Verdi Requiem. They are especially lovely with chamber music and small ensemble jazz.", David, South Africa
"The P3ES-2s are without question the best small room speakers I have ever heard", Hal, USA.
Monitor 20 is favoured by the BBC as a master control speaker - used as such for 2006 FIFA World Cup in their Berlin studios. The sound from the field, the interview studio and all other sources was mixed to the picture using only the M20s and then sent on to London for transmission throughout the BBC in the UK, over the internet and through the BBC World Service.
Monitor 30 and Super HL5
"...the M30 and SHL5 are too cheap! Harbeth speakers are one of the most musically sounding speakers around." Bernd, Germany
HL Compact 7ES-3
"I'm about 3 weeks into 7ES-3 ownership, paired with my McIntosh equipment (MA6900, MC201, MR85) and I could not be happier! " Sephiam, USA
"I just played "Metallica - The Black Album" on my Harbeth Super HL-5 OFC.... boy oh boy... love the sonics.... fantastic sound. Harbeth SHL-5 timing is just spot on." SB, Singapore
"For me, rock 'n' roll through the SHL5's can be heaven. Particularly a recording with a wide dynamic range, one well-mastered." Hoop, USA
Super HL5 and C7ES-3
"I got my dream sound from SHL5. I will keep my C7 and SHL5 for my life. I am very proud as a Harbethian. Keith W, Malaysia
"The Harbeth speakers are marvellous speakers. They sound as wonderful as they do because of this, and not because of the electronics use with them." Ned, USA.
"The M40 sounds great even at very low volume. The large size presents a much bigger and more enjoyable area of music." TNC, New York City
