A sonic "Tardis" that fills the room space completely... the definitive Hi-fi speaker for the 21st Century. If it were a Michelin Chef, it would be given a 5 stars and a Rosette!
Harbeth's Super HL5plus
produces breathtaking transparency, a huge soundstage and total immersion in the performance. This speaker creates a rich bass and sweet midrange that brings acoustic music alive.
This is the latest generation of Dudley Harwood's original HL-Monitor: the cabinet is still engineered in the BBC tradition of removable 'thin-wall' panels for a totally true-to-life sound.
Retaining the classic 'two cubic foot' proportions found in the very best BBC monitors, the HL5plus
relies on the exclusive Harbeth-made 200mm RADIAL2™
bass/mid driver. This produces a big, warm and powerful sound that underpins the incredible midband clarity.
The 25mm main tweeter is augmented by a 20mm SuperTweeter for an extended and even dispersion to the upper edge of the audio band.
