Harbeth Super HL5 speakers in cherry wood. One scratch in top of left speaker (see photo closeup) which is not very noticeable.
"The Harbeths successfully tread the finest of balances between resolution and musicality. The recording signatures of the Mercury, RCA, Columbia, Argo, Philips and DG labels are immediately obvious; yet never interfere with musical communication. A long listening session comparing performances of Beethoven’s Eroica and Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique revealed the Harbeth’s aesthetic power: the quality of performance was completely transparent, first-rate playing completely distinguishable from the second-rate and the also-ran. As a direct access into art, the Harbeths are unparalleled.
The conclusion is obvious. The Harbeth Super HL5 is a true masterpiece of speaker design."
