    Group delay correction

    SAM corrects group time delay in the bass frequencies < 150 Hz. Definitely worthwhile methinks...

    {Moderator's comment: and how audible is uncorrected or corrected "Group delay" in the low...
  2. Just more!

    They will work great with what you have and give you more natural warmth, bass depth and better integration between drive units.

    Simply more realism!

    DSP at low frequencies

    In my opinion, eq is best done on the lower frequencies only (< 300-500 Hz max), where the room is dominant. When correcting anything higher than that, it tends to negatively impact the naturalness...

    Mirroring

    They have never and will never be mirrored. As mirroring the baffles will increase complexity during manufacture (two different baffles need to be made), it will also increase cost and will serve no...

    Bass enough

    Definitely P3... Will have sufficient bass in such a small room with all the room gain, possibly down to the lowest octave....

    That warm Dutch magic!

    Thanks for introducing our company Beter Beeld & Geluid as the new distributor of Harbeth for the Netherlands! Made us feel warm inside!
  8. Background noises

    This is more common than you might think... In this digital age, we have expectations of a remaster of something very old, to be 'quiet'. This means that with many classical (of rock/jazz) remasters...
  9. Height is most important

    I to have heard some differences between stands of same height but different construction in a direct A/B test, making sure the placement of the stands is exactly the same (or else the acoustics of...
  10. Costs plus

    The Harbeth line of speakers are not built with a specific price point in mind. It's the other way around: the complexity and parts costs dictate what the speaker needs to cost to cover all costs....

    The 'universal' Harbeth?

    I would not be so sure... First, I don't think the SHL5 would be too woolly, as I find the SHL5 to not sound woolly at all, unless poorly positioned. I also wouldn't call the C7 more open or...

    Shl5?

    In this situation, I guess the SHL5 would also be suitable, but the deciding factor will definitely be the audition. Technically, all models (except M40.1) would be suitable.

    SHL5 and nearby walls

    Just want to say that as a dealer, we have some experience with SHL5 in multiple rooms and they always sound best with ANY wall at least 75 cm away for the bass to not be overbearing and/or for the...
  15. Clipping

    This is the only correct answer to the high input sensitivity/high source output. Thanks! Saved me typing it all! :) I can't understand why Alan would confuse high input sensitivity with (pre-amp)...

    Sticky: Custom made ...

    I find Custom Design 'Fish Tank' stands to be very, very good... They are custom made in exactly the size you wish (exact to the mm). Order them with filling holes and fill up with Inert Filler to...

    The danger of compariatives between speakers?

    I think the answer mostly lies in companies wanting to bring to market a speaker that grabs the attention among a field of less attention grabbing speakers. This soon becomes a slippery slope, when...
  18. Adjusting the sub

    I am sorry, I don't know the type of filter used in the SPL-1000R... Normally, we just measure until we have a good flat response between speaker and subwoofer, something that is also easily done by...
  19. Subwoofer integration

    As a Velodyne dealer, we have been very successful integrating SPL subwoofers with Harbeth.

    I would suggest experimenting a lot with placement (a corner behind one of the speakers, in the middle...

    Optimum room size

    Yes, it will be a much better match for the room. As a dealer of Harbeth speakers, I really advise people to have at least 75 cm of space around the speakers and will never advise these speakers in...

    Big speakers in small rooms

    Getting the P3ESR/ES2 would be the best solution, but not the most affordable one... Stuffing ports has its effect on the midrange as well and I don't recommend it. Do keep in mind that have bigger...

    Don't bother

    Don't bother with burn-in CD's. 'Burning' in speakers is a reality for some brands (I have heard Meridian DSP speakers and speakers from Wilson Benesch benefit extremely from burn-in), but for...
