Harbeth Super HL5 plus. Coming Next Week!!

5563504720_89d1e609da
Harbeth’s Super HL5plus produces breathtaking transparency, a huge soundstage and total immersion in the performance. This speaker creates a rich bass and sweet midrange that brings acoustic music alive.

This is the latest generation of Dudley Harwood’s original HL-Monitor: the cabinet is still engineered in the BBC tradition of removable ‘thin-wall’ panels for a totally true-to-life sound.

Retaining the classic ‘two cubic foot’ proportions found in the very best BBC monitors, the HL5plus relies on the exclusive Harbeth-made 200mm RADIAL2™ bass/mid driver. This produces a big, warm and powerful sound that underpins the incredible midband clarity.

The 20mm main tweeter is augmented by a SuperTweeter for an extended and even dispersion to the upper edge of the audio band.

I’ve Reenlisted In The Neat Army!

It is my pleasure to announce the return of Neat Acoustics to the shop! I sold Neat years ago and have always loved them. They were one of the very first speaker brands I proudly carried. I stupidly dropped them due to distribution woes and the sharp learning curve of running a Hi-Fi shop. It was like breaking up with your first love! I was crushed! I may have wept.

Neat are just that. They aren’t tacky behemoths. They are simply tasteful, easy to place in a room and have a very small footprint. The sound is huge compared to their small enclosures. They sound excellent with solid state as well as beefier tube amps (25+ watts)!

I now have the affordable Motive SX1 and SX2. The teeny tiny Iotas and one of my all-time favorites, the Elite SX! Look for offerings from the Momentum and Ultimatum lines in the future.

Ortofon is releasing the 2M se mono cartridge to coincide with The Beatles mono box set. So, I’ve decided to put together an event and special! Let’s call it “The Beatles Bundle”! Buy a Rega RP6 turntable fitted with the 2M Mono and the Box set is HALF PRICE! Hear it all together at the HOOTENANNY on September 20th. I have two box sets available for purchase.

I’ll be playing other mono records, not just Beatles. wink wink..
