Harbeth Super HL5plus Monitor Loudspeaker

$7,250.00

The Ultimate British Monitor

Sometimes, just sometimes, we modern humans are guilty of huberous. It seems that everything needs to be the latest, glossiest and most techno  fashionable to be be desirable today and then throw-away-able tomorrow!. This of course blinds us to to a few fundamental facts. Truly competent amplifiers were developed a hundred years ago and there is a reason why we used to make all those rectangular stand mount boxy speakers in the 1960s-1970s.

Don’t take my word for it!  please read the review via the link on this listing. This classic large stand mounted loudspeaker simply sounds wonderful. And whilst sound quality should be foremost in any speaker evaluation, we just love the slab sided, in your face retro look of these monitors. Take a closer look and you will see real state of the art, driver and crossover technology. Once satisfied that the components are high quality, take a look at the beautifully applied real wood timber veneer and highly polished finish.

Harbeth’s Super HL5plus, driven correctly, produces a huge soundstage of width, depth and weight for a total immersion in the musical performance. We were blown away!

We have a pair available for in store auditioning and evaluation.

Description

Harbeth Super HL5plus

This model is the latest and greatest iteration of the legendary Harbeth HL-Monitor Mk1 from 1977 that launched the Harbeth company. In continuous production through several design generations since its inception, now featuring Harbeth’s RADIAL2™ driver and a radically new approach to the crossover. The HL5plus gets the very best from the custom made 200mm RADIAL2™ bass/mid driver in a cabinet that is skillfully designed according to the pioneering research undertaken by the BBC. The system sound is large, powerful and transparent with an astonishing freshness. No wonder the SHL5 family is such a worldwide legend.

The SuperTweeter extends the system response to the upper edge of the audio band and beyond.

Harbeth’s Super HL5plus produces a huge soundstage of width, depth and weight for a total immersion in the musical performance.

We have a pair available for in store auditioning and evaluation.
