Perfect sunsets and loudspeakers ...
That's very kind of you to make those comments.
I was driving towards an outstandingly beautiful sunset thinking of your message. A sunset and good speakers have something in common. As they are, they do not need any adornment. There is nothing material that can be added to transform either experience other than good friends and perhaps a gin and tonic (better: a gin and lime?). They are complete in themselves.
Harbeth is in the hugely wonderful position of having a full order book and an iron grip on the commercial wheels that are necessary to power a successful enterprise - we are definitely here for the long run and to give 100% value for money. .
Our situation is so different and less stressed from most others in the industry that it's hard to convey to you just how lucky we are. Every morning I wake-up and count my blessings and with that mindset, we just don't have any time or interest in peripheral issues. To many audio sellers the sales of the accessories, gadgets and gizmos you mention provides bread and butter to their families and we must respect that. Everyone has a right to make a living and every consumer has the right to decide yes or no.
