    Since I am a British speaker fan I have always thought Harbeth would be an excellent choice. I have never actually heard them.

    I got the MBL a little bit ago; I think the beginning of June. I like it a lot. I think it is my favorite amplifier that I have owned. The Meta appear to be a very nice improvement over the original LS50's (which I did own). With the Rythmik...
