Harbeth

All Harbeths are hand made and individually tested in the village of Lindfield, southern England. Concentrated development work is conducted at our rural research centre. 

One of Lindfield's claims to fame is that in the year 1066, King Harold's archers made use of the yew trees of the village on their way to the Battle of Hastings.

Each crossover board is carefully checked and tested using computer-controlled equipment. Every finished speaker is again tested before shipment to ensure it leaves the factory in perfect condition. Careful packing, in specially-designed boxes, ensures a safe journey to the final customer.

P3ESR

Loudspeakers

"I love the Harbeth P3ESR... the best iteration yet from any manufacturer of the BBC LS3/5A mini-monitor concept."

John Atkinson, 'Stereophile' USA


Amazing clarity and astonishing bass from a beautiful shoebox-sized cabinet - the RADIAL2™ Harbeth P3ESR is the ultimate mini monitor. The rich Harbeth sound, in miniature. [The P3ESR is sold in some markets as the Monitor 20.1 Domestic.]

Harbeth's world-exclusive RADIAL2™ technology has been transferred to the heart of the mini P3ESR. Designed and made by Harbeth UK, the RADIAL2™ 110mm (5") bass/midrange driver offers the hallmark clarity and naturalness of the larger Harbeths.

Breathtaking transparency, real bass, and fantastic holographic imaging endow the P3ESR with grand, captivating, transparent sound presented in a conveniently small and beautiful cabinet. Not only is the P3ESR capable of being used in a wide range of listening environments, but it is optimised to get the best from any amplifier.

COMPACT 7ES-3
Loudspeakers

The design and engineering of the Compact 7 is so solid and sophisticated... that it sounds absolutely wonderful, retaining its essential neutrality and natural tonal balance...
'The Absolute Sound' Magazine USA
Whatever you ask of the Compact 7ES-3, it always delivers: perfectly. The clarity is spellbinding and brings the 'magic carpet ride' experience to the listening room in a medium-sized enclosure.

The world-class HL Compact 7ES-3 takes the ultra-clean Harbeth-exclusive RADIAL2™ cone technology to another performance level. This medium-sized loudspeaker combines natural sound with a flair for reproducing any and every type of music.

The Harbeth secret for natural sound is the result of the meticulous attention to detail. 

Critically important, but hidden, is the crossover for seamless integration of the drive units across a wider horizontal and vertical arc meaning that the Compact 7ES-3 is far less critical of stand height than many speakers of this size.

Super HL5 Plus

Loudspeakers

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.

MONITOR 30.1
Loudspeakers

Harbeths: resolving and ravishing... Timbres so true, and resolution, too. Whatever amp I used, the tonality was superb. Never, ever, fatiguing.
Sam Tellig, Stereophile (USA) December 2012

A refinement of the mid-sized BBC speaker (LS5/9), the multi award-winning M30.1 offers a smooth, controlled and well-rounded sound which excels on acoustic music. 

Featuring the Harbeth RADIAL™ bass/mid unit from the reference M40.1, the new-generation M30.1 space-saving professional monitor disappears into the listening room. The M30.1's outstanding midrange clarity and well-controlled bass brings music to life in a wide range of listening environments including front/centre/rear-channels in professional surround sound systems.

It is the first choice for many professional audio engineers including Britain's National Film and Television school and the British Library's National Sound Archive.

MONITOR 40.2

Loudspeakers

Many are called, but few are chosen. It is a startling experience to sit in front of these large boxes [M40.1] and hear sound that has no box character at all.
'The Absolute Sound' Magazine, USA

The Monitor 40.2 redefines the term ‘Reference Loudspeaker’. Built on the success of the multi award-winning M40.1, this new generation is the biggest leap forward in sonic supremacy since the design’s launch in January 1998.

More efficient, more adaptable to a wide range of listening environments, perfectly balanced and more transparent and engaging, the M40.2 takes the Harbeth sound to a new level. With its mesmerizing and addictive soundstage, Harbeth’s reference monitor produces a grand, dynamic and unforgettable sonic experience – far beyond conventional loudspeaker listening.

AWARDS for the M40.1 include... Golden Ear award from The Absolute Sound magazine Named TONE Audio speaker product of the year. Editors' Choice by The Absolute Sound.
