    My listening-room with the SHL5s

    CD-Player: a cheap Technics (modified by a Voodoo-Suplier here in Germany called Clockwork Audio; well no idea how else it would have sounded; but it works the way it is)

    Preamp: Quad 44

    Amp: Atmasphere S-30 OTL

    Alle cables are non-fancy stuff supplied from my Quad-dealer.

    The amp (and some CDs).

    I really love the look of that output-transformerless tube amp.
    Handmade as the Harbeths are (simply a good feeling).
    Feels and looks like quality and passion are in that machine.

    Another perspective. In the background near the window are the Eletrostatics. Allthough the Harbeths are much better to me I will presumably not sell them. They are somethin special after all.


    @1ryal: Thanks!

    Hi Thurston,

    You have good taste in spks cause all i see in the background are british spks. The Celestions in the background are presumably the SL-6s or the 100? Celestions were one of the spks that got me hooked onto the archtypical smooth, warm & sophisticated british sound. Enjoy your SHL-5s to the max! I bet they sound nothing less than fantastic in your setup. Btw, did you remove the labels (usually on the bottom left side) on your SHL-5s?

    Well, obviously you are a speaker-expert!

    To be exact the ones that are obviously visible (the ones on the black stands): these are Celestion 100.
    (used in a 5.1 Setup for Home Cinema; the center-speaker standing on the low stands in the middle is a 100 as well)

    But:
    If you look closely into the rooms corners there are some more black boxes: these are Celestion 6!
    (they are only seldom used with the Sansui 9090 Vintage Receiver seen on the right side of the rack)

    And:
    In the back of the room there are even more Celestions: Celestion 3 as rearspeakers.

    Here is my SHL5 setup in hall. I am lucky enough this hall sound good to my ear without any need of further treatment even it is quite empty. This also tell how friendly the SHL5 is. My setup in this hall consist of:

    Harbeth SHL5
    LFD zero LE mkIII
    Lite tube Dac 50 (modded)
    Marantz CD17mkIII
    Cables: MIT T2 speaker cable, noetech nei3001 interconnect, noetech digital cable, 3 power cords (from my old computer) and normal UK type extended socket.

    Photo taken by my mobile phone.

    Default SHL5 with Accuphase

    Dear Harbeth lovers,

    This is my Harbeth system atm.

    It consist of:

    Harbeth SHL5
    Accuphase E-250
    Primare CD 22
    HRT Music Streamer II 2011
    Cables: Kimber 12tc wbt terminated, interconect Kimber Select KS 1011, Kimber/Wattgate powercord.

    I had AR vsi 60 int. tube amp before this and its was extremely good combo but when I heard it with Accu I run into a store next morning

    Cheers!

    Hi Milos, congrats.. Looking at your set-up, I would sugggest that you toe in the speakers a bit. It's too close to the side cupboard with glass. When listening cover up the cupboard with some thick towel, a blanket or better with acoustic treatment (side reflection).

    Happy listening,

    Default Bass traps plus black curtains

    ...a little update

    Has been discussed in another thread. I build some bass-traps and added some black curtains and some fabric on the back wall.
