So you are starting an Harbeth family? Nice set up, I appreciate the low cost and "do-the-job" style Ikea stands and DIY panels. I guess that the carpet on the floor plays a great role in the quality of your room's sound.

Have a good trip on the audio road,

I read a lot of wonderful review especially from user not audio magazine so I'm curious about 40.1

Yes I like the sound and design from this two model so classic elegant, Room acoustic, placement speaker and component is very important to achieve optimal sound although Harbeth is quite user friendly but when you treat them properly they will bring you to audio nirvana

hi,

i also use M40.1 and agree that you do NOT need a subwoofer. i measured them in my room at 31 Hz with only -2 dB! i have to add that i use a digital room correction system.

Digital room correction is important to adjust frequency response between your speaker and room acoustics

Absolutely! especially when you have - 15dB (!) at 80Hz as in my room due to roof pitch made of plaster boards. there is absolutely no passive means that could help me. the lyngdorf "room perfect" is a bless for me.

best,
delgesu

Just replaced cable speaker from Harmonic Technology Fantasy to Pro-9 plus are more detailed, more open, bass is deeper and staging is deeper with improved imaging.

{Moderator's comment: as you may know, we do not promote cable on this site except in the free-for-all- sandbox area. In this case, we'll let it through as you have taken the trouble over various pictures.}

Ysuryadi, nics pictures. Any particular reasons for using the Beaks?

Beaks make the center image more solid especially when I'm play C7ES3 because distance between speaker is quite far.

Preamp McIntosh C2300 good in micro dynamic, subtle details, timbre is delicate, liquid midrange, smooth and continuous. Recommended for Harbeth speaker :)
