You can use almost ANY amp with your Harbeths...
That old twaddle again? It constantly amazes me that these rumours seem to have a life of their own despite the fact that as we've said here before they are not based on fact.

Harbeths are designed to be easy to drive for the reason (as I have stated) that we want to be 99.99% certain when you take delivery of your Harbeths that they will make beautiful music with whatever equipment you already have.
What do we have to do to drop the wretched issue of amplifier compatibility? It is an issue in the mind only. It is a non-issue. Why would anyone place credence in the opinions of third parties who have no input to the design process, no in-depth knowledge of the product, presumably no design experience and no connection at all with the factory?
