  1. Adequacy of power

    Among most Harbeth users in this group it is consensus (against the usual audiophile mainstream) that amplifiers *should* sound the same. Only necessity is enough power for the volume-level desired. ...
  2. Stands for under Eur. 100

    I bought some stands on german eBay (new!) for 50,- Euros (you could type BOXEN STANDFUSS SCHWARZ onto german eBay) an the ones with four columns are the ones.

    They send them to France for a...

    Mirroring

    If you use the google picture-search you will see that it seems they usually were mirrored.

    So your assumption, besides sounding logic, is not taking us nearer to the truth.

    Maybe an expert...

    Beyond reason

    That is really unusual.

    A person that knows it is all BS (or at least very very debatable) deliberately chasing for someone to take away his money!!?? You cannot argue with that.

  7. Should I?

    Very true.

    I am struggling a little with the invitation. I am a little shy in the end when it comes to visiting people whom I have only spoken to for some minutes (allthough they were incredibly...
  8. Mixing with real English speakers!

    I remember seeing a television programme with James May & Oz Clarke (in search of THE british drink), where they once sat down to eat a traditional english meal. It was a curry.

    And: I (sadly)...

    Big speakers ...

    I only once went to the Highend many years ago. It was still in Frankfurt and I remember it as being a little disappointing. Maybe I had false expectations. I went there to see some of the finest...

    Real music in the normal room

    Once again a very cosy looking home and a very practical aproach without the usual audiophile blabla of pushing speakers around a few millimetres and such.

    Music matters!

    And quite possibly it...

    Perfect execution of an idea

    @manfred:
    You are right. Sorry for capturing the thread with the digital-discussion.

    To stay with the real topic of this thread, I have to say that this Bel Canto-setup is also very much to my...

    Digital is digital

    @manfred:
    Well, those who compared digital blind had problems in finding differences in any digital, may it be cheap or expensive at all.
    So I doubt that this is possible.

    Besides: if digital...

    User preferences

    Which could mean that you simply like the sound a tube-amp makes when its clipping. That is the opposite of everything hifi and true fidelity stands for, more exactly: it is a changed and degraded...

    Real music, here

    I have a dedicated listening room and simply love sitting there, being surrounded by music in its physical (old school) form. Have to admit I never really considered streaming yet.

    The folly of small amps

    Over the years I went up with the amount of power in my amplification and can now say:
    If you believe the Leben or the Sugden are powerful enough you would be suprised how much you are missing.

    I believe this is not really something a company starts to ensure satisfaction.

    The Harbeth legacy

    I believe that the whole lineup is good enough not be outdated when something new arrives. I assume that people would need some time to hear the difference between M30 and an M30.1. Not because the...

    It's a male thing

    Do not think 'wiser' is correct. The two sexes simply deal slightly different with things. And men tend to have more hobbies in which they love to dig deep into the details. At least this is my...
  22. 'Natural sound' is meaningless for pop music

    I have to disagree.

    Surely there are differing recording-qualities, but even a less good production is listenable and not fatiguing at all. It just does not sound very good, but still the music...

    Well, as I did not notice problems with my mere 50 watts I have no need to change soon.
