This is the one! I have been a authorized Harbeth dealer since I started Sound Science in 2005. I know these speakers and when I heard the new Super HL5 Plus I was startled by the music I heard. What I heard was a box speaker with all of the positive sound qualities of an Electrostatic speaker but in a speaker that is easy to drive and doesn't take herculean amounts of power to play or play loud.
For many years the original Super HL5 were my main speakers. They did a fantastic job with the kind of music I liked, Classic Rock, Jazz and Classical. The monitor 30.1 bested the original 5 for vocal but the original 5 still sounded better at vocals than most speakers and had deeper better bass than rest of the Harbeths with the exception of the Monitor 40s.
When you read the reviews of any of the Harbeths the take away points for all of them is they sound like music, you will never become fatigued listening to them and when set up properly they disappear and you only hear the music. The new Super HL5 Plus takes us to a new level of performance with all the air around the instruments that the best Electrostatic speakers are famous for and a total integration of the sound as if it were a perfect single driver design without a crossover that could play all frequencies equally well. Well that speaker doesn't exist but the
Super HL5 Plus does.
Call me or write to get your pair now. The price listed is for all the non Cherry finishes. For Cherry the price is $6890. of course I am a full line Harbeth Dealer, want a pair of Monitor 40.1, Monitor 30.1 Compact 7 or P3 instead of the Super Hl5 Plus, give me call.
