    Harbeth Super HL 5+ 40th Anniversary Speakers

    After 2 years of ownership I'm extremely happy with these very overlooked speakers. Especially with my application and my "smallish" listening area. The room is 14' x 27' but only half of it is dedicated for home audio. The speakers sound truly incredible, with brass, woods, strings, and acoustic instruments in general. Do yourself a huge favor and audition some Harbeth speakers. Right now I'm listening to Tony Bennett's, "My Heart Sings" album. Mouth watering sound. I've listened to hundreds of recordings since purchasing the Harbeths and they never fail to put a smile on my face. No connection with Harbeth. Just a tremendously satisfied customer. Thanks again, Mike, for turning me on to these speakers. I obviously, really, really, like them.
