Description

Description

A sonic “Tardis” that fills the room space completely… the definitive Hi-fi speaker for the 21st Century. If it were a Michelin Chef, it would be given a 5 stars and a Rosette!
Robert Edwards, TV Sound Director

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 25mm main tweeter is augmented by a 20mm SuperTweeter for an extended and even dispersion to the upper edge of the audio band.

‘Most Wanted component’ 2004 by Stereo Times

Rated ‘Class A’ by Sam Tellig of Stereophile, February 2005

Harbeth

For over forty years, Harbeth has been producing top-of-the-line speakers with innovative technology behind every model. Based in England, they began working with BBC on research and development. The company eventually decided to branch out from broadcasting and introduce new innovations, such as its RADIAL™ cone technology. The new audio modifications Harbeth made became very popular for customers seeking the best quality sound possible. Their mission became clear: to raise the technical standard of the entire global loudspeaker industry through their remarkable audio improvements. Every Harbeth speaker incorporates the RADIAL™ cone feature, which is one of the biggest advancements in loudspeaker technology. Because of this innovation, each speaker has unmatched clarity and resolution. In particular, models like the Harbeth 40.2 are known to sound closer to live music than nearly all competitors. Similar to the Harbeth 40.2, the Harbeth Super HL5Plus speakers also have great quality but are more affordable. All Harbeth loudspeakers have unbelievable audio performance and are one of the most innovative brands to date. Overture is a proud dealer of Harbeth products, selling customers the highest quality loudspeakers from Harbeth. Interested in purchasing a new Harbeth speaker?
