The "H" word is spoken here too... what have you there ? P3's are a single box IIRC so that narrows it down.
Way cool, @Don C
I think Kazi is going to audition the. 40.2s soon.
I'm listening to my C7's right now. Happy,happy.
It’s funny because after the LS50s what I would love to try is a pair of modern Harbeth. And many used examples on the market. Too bad I don’t have the coin!
It's funny because it's what the LS50s did well and didn't do well that drove me to give the Harbeths a try.
These are the C7ES-3 30th Anniversary Edition (Eucalyptus finish even!) but sans stands. At the moment they are rather comically perched atop the stands I've been using for the various smaller bookshelf speakers, all of which fit basically perfectly; these, not so much. I browsed the various interwebs and the Skylan stands are highly recommended by Harbeth users, but I think they look just awful. The Sound Foundation stands are less awful-looking, but only a little, and they're apparently impossible to get. (From a design concept, my head likes them better.) Sound Anchor stands also look awful. Alas, I'll improvise something in the meantime.
Anyway, they're producing sounds at the moment, and that's good!
Note the yardstick: If I sit up real tall and on two extra pillows, I can get to almost the right height, haha.
Exactly my thoughts.
I like the skeletal stands for Harbeth speakers and other BBC lineage stuff.
My kind of BBC stands
Congrat’s! I’m now entertaining the idea of buying a set (thanks to bad influences around these parts). They are a bit proud for what looks like an unassuming and common design; clean and simple lines. This leads me to believe that the focus is primarily on accurate sound reproduction (nothing wrong with that). Can’t wait to read your thoughts on them and how they fair versus other sets you’ve had in the past.
Congrats. You are a lucky man. Some of my best audio moments have been created by Harbeths.
These are suppose to be the mac daddy stands for Harbeth.
Those look really nice Don, look forward to a report on how you like them.
Not sure how close these would get you.
BTW, did the Elac's sell?
And here I thought you were going to say Heresys...
<shudders at the thought> or “oh, my bleeding ears”
Those are similar in concept, but too short (even for my diminutive stature).
Elacs still here, I keep having to walk around the box. KEFs, too.
I saw those for the first time last night. They have one US importer, I might give them a call on Saturday.
Thanks! Mine, too.
There is a dealer down here who sells them.
