Hi folks, anybody knows if Harbeth Speakers are used as Reference speakers by any reputable amplifier designers/manufacturers in developing & evaluating their amplifiers? Or perhaps a Reference used by other loudspeaker manufacturers?

IMHO, Harbeths possess excellent midband with extreme low colouration & a Reference class tonal balance that should be the envy of any other loudspeaker manufacturer. Hence, i wouldn't be surprised if they are widely used as a benchmark by which others are judged or to do evaluation work.

Without even trying I know of three designer/manufacturers who use Harbeth speakers exclusively. I'd better not mention names as there might be political implications.
