    Are you thinking of asking "can I use this amplifier with these Harbeth speakers?". Harbeth speakers are intentionally designed to present an easy electrical load to their driving amplifier. They will almost certainly work with your existing amp if it is competently designed and working to original specification and meets the requirements specified in the Harbeth brochure/website about minimum power output.

    If you must ask about amplifiers please only ask it in the OPINION CORNER sub-forum not in this speaker section as we are confident that the answer to the question will be "yes"!

    NOTE: Harbeth speakers are 'amplifier-agnostic'. Any recommendations or suggestions you read here concerning amplifiers are not an inducement to buy. You must make up your own mind after a visit to your dealer.

    Please read "Forum Policy" before posting!

    Before you post on the Harbeth User Group please read the Forum Policy here. From the outset it has been our desire to create a knowledge archive. Knowledge is based on facts and observations. Knowledge is timeless. Our basic position is in line with this here.

    To post on HUG, your contribution must have a timely, relevant and significantly factual, objective content. Subjective and highly personal opinion based posts are unlikely to be of interest to future Harbeth owners/users as fashions change and opinions come and go.

    We regret but we cannot accept Posts that encourage users to buy exotic cables, electronics or accessories and such posts will be deleted without notice or edited down. Questions about whether amplifier A sound better than amplifier B will not appear here as they cannot be answered factually. A considered answer would require test and measurement; any any other comment would be merely subjective opinion and not a reliable answer.

    The Moderators' decision is final in all matters regarding what appears here. From April 2013 the moderation policy has been adjusted to keep the overall content as tight and relevant as possible for serious objectively-inclined readers. People like us, in fact, who by keeping our feet on the ground are able to design and deliver real-world value in loudspeakers that last.
