    Those Harbeths spotted at the Bristol Show, I believe yesterday. Crazy prices, although Harbeth do great sounding speakers.

    I'm not going this year - it's not a great shows with few high end brands and far too many visitors. The last time I visited, the Harbeth M40.3 were best sound in show for me.
    Sources - NAD M50.2 (streamer, CD player, CD ripper, hard drive music store)
    Amplification - NAD M33 all-in-one, NAD M12 preamp (in reserve), Atma-Sphere Class D monos
    Speakers - Avantgarde Duo XD, Avantgarde Duo (2006) - both aesthetically modified

    Passive Harbeth's are great speakers and all, but @3-4x the cost of the Dutch & Dutch 8c's might be a tough sell. It is good to see signs of confidence that well executed DSP is your friend, not foe.

    Let’s see active, DSP, x times the price.
    It is a win-win for speaker manufacturers. Not so for amp manufacturers.
