    Default Harbeth Germany says ... (2)

    Hallo Stephan,

    bitte verstehen Sie mich nicht falsch - die Abfrage nach Herkunft und Seriennummer ist ein obligatorischer Vorgang bevor ich über Garantie-Regelungen nachdenke. Seien Sie sicher, dass ich alles tun werde, damit Sie wieder zufrieden und entspannt Musik mit Ihren Harbeth Lautsprechern genießen können.

    Mit freundlichem Gruß,

    Default Oiling my veneers?

    This said, it doesn't stress me much and I now that it affect the look of the speaker but not the sound.

    My 7's are the 30th anniversary addition which I bought used through a dealer in NH, Fidelis,,and they have tiny cracks in the veneer as well.
    I've had them for 4 months now and was told that I should put some type of oil on them to keep them from drying out.
    I was also told that food grade mineral oil would be a good choice as that type of oil is used for butcher block and bamboo wooden kitchen spoons, etc,, and wooden bowls.

    I was just wondering what others use or what Harbeth would recommend.
    Do love the sound of them though.

    Default Be Careful

    Oil or polish is not recommended in the manual. I'm guessing that the original problem may have been caused by swings in temperature and/or humidity, or direct sunlight. Now that the surface of the veneer is cracked, light oiling may slow down the process. I would be cautious as you may compromise the glue that bonds the veneer. I would check with an expert before proceeding. Perhaps, HUG may have a suggestion.
