    I look forward to listening to the M30.1. Alan has created a true benchmark with the P3ESR so if the M30.1 has inherited some of those ESR genes, it will draw the listener in with an amazingly...
  3. Pitch listening

    It is audible to me; {...} pitch followed by a {...} pitch. To me it feels like a 'happier' and -in contrast- 'depressing' note, if that makes sense.

    By the way, getting the core notes exactly...

    Hi jplaurel,

    could you elaborate on the three RCA- and double XLR inputs per chassis? Perhaps a photo of the rear?

    Am I correct in assuming that this supplier makes an input board for balanced...

    Interesting.
    I see no issue in using a DIY amp if it performs well, is reliable and built with care (esp. the solderings and internal fixtures). In fact, a tiny mono amp (as it appears to be) can...

    Hi Alan,

    it is nice to read about your DIY ESL experience - at a young age as well. Now if that isn't proof of your true commitment to designing and building the most honest acoustic transducers,...
  7. DIY port bungs from paint roller

    As fas as I know, Harbeth does not supply port-bungs but one can easily make them out of a foam paint-roller.

    This leaves a small hole in the centre where the centre-pin of the paint roller sits...

    Why upgrade the amp?

    To the moderator: I agree completely with what you say; a truly straightforward & stable amp-design should not have a clearly identifiable sonic signature but sadly, many amps can in fact somehow...

    System sonic sugnature?

    Hi errhoo,

    could you elaborate on your perception of the resulting sonic signature of your system, now that the new Harbeths have joined in?

    For instance has the tonal balance shifted or do you...

    Sticky: Moving on and upwards

    @Dave_Shaw; very nice finish! We use Santos Rosewood ESR's here, but that silvery grey could be very appealing (I might be tempted).

    A bit less sparkly would be fine but a too flat, dark grey...

    The P3 ESR model is a considerable leap forwards in terms of transparancy, coherence and indeed driver integration, when compared against the P3ES2 model which sounds great itself.

    As the ESR is...
  14. Single wire causes less confusion

    The Bi-wire terminals that Harbeth uses are of high quality and internally connected directly to the crossover-PCB. Connecting a single-wire cable with the red connector into HF+ and the black into...
  15. SHL5 maybe sonic tonic?

    Hi Maccar,

    As far as I know the Naim CDX2 is not typically 'bright' but it is certainly lively in the upper regions, the Sugden amp has a very open and airy character but is not typically 'warm'....

    Reconsider your amplifier choices

    I second that; Bel Canto & Harbeth harmonise well.

    Hi Veleik

    You're welcome and please bear in mind that I only mentioned this -admittedly compromised- option because you clearly wish to try this alternative setup and you have the DPA-1. With the...

    Short stands maybe?

    Hi Veleik,

    in theory this should be possible, provided that you do indeed tilt them backwards so that the central HF unit 'points' more or less to your ears when seated. Luckily, the SHL5 is a big...

    Haven't tried the Bryston but I can report that Exposure's 3000 Series integrated works well with SHL5, as does the Bel Canto C5i.
    Both are musically engaging, reliable and well made.

    Rosewood and black

    In fact, the P3ESR model has a forth option: black ash (perhaps a special order finish).

    Here is a picture of a typical rosewood P3ESR:

    BCD with Harbeth

    Very nice system and setup, my compliments!

    BCD equipment goes very well with Harbeth, we too enjoy that combo daily (C5i/P3ESR).
  25. P3ESR replace Quads

    I auditioned the S3/5 and S3/5R against both the P3ES2 and P3ESR..... Since then, I have been listening to a pair of ESRs.

    The Spendor's are SMOOTH, but overly so and even closed-in compared to...
