    Default My new SHL5 has arrived

    Hi all, this is my first post here but I've been lurking for some time..

    My new Harbeth SHL5 in Tiger Ebony has just arrived.. They look gorgeous.. stunning.. simply beautiful. I can't wait to set them in my room and play some music.. In a few days I'll report how good they sound. I hope that the upgrade of the rest of my system will be also completed in a few days..

    I'm happy, which is not a frequent state for me :-)

    Cheers,
    Adam

    I hope so :-) I know Harbeth speakers pretty well, but been waiting quite long for my own pair..

    After the first few hours of listening I must admit that these are the best speakers I've ever heard :-) The wife appreciate superb clarity while I love the way that instruments are separated and rich, full-body sound with great extension both in upper and bottom registers.

    Mr Shaw and the rest of Harbeth Audio Ltd. - congratulations, you've done a fantastic job.

    I, too, just unboxed my (used, but new to me!) 30th Aniv SHL5's.

    First record played? 'Kind of Blue'.

    Oh My God! THIS is what I've looked for for over 30 years!

    Most humble thanks and admiration to Alan and his team.

    Who would have thought such wonderful sounds could come from plain ol' boxes.

    Still in love!

    It's interesting the sense of authority that comes with listening to something through the Harbeths. If a cd or album doesn't sound good, I know it's the fault of the recording, not my playback. I've never had that confidence before with other speakers.

    It will be worth the wait, believe me. I've not had mine very long but I knew from the first time I heard them (I bought a pair without an audition) they were the best I've ever heard or or owned.

    Thanks Geoff for the assurance of the wait, I am sure it will be a good wait, have heard that several times. Have been waiting... to date... about... 4 or 5 months, I think... and another 2 to 3 months to wait I think... that will make a 6 to 7 months.

    Anyway.... I have my C7ES to keep me company now, will be moving to a new place soon (Sept)... guess I will not have a chance to listen to the 5's in my current listening room before I move My 7's are a definite stay when my 5's arrive... will not wish to wait for monthssss..... if I ever wish to have the 7's again, hahahaha.
