To celebrate this historic occasion, we are thrilled to announce our very special anniversary products; the SHL5plus and M40.2 are now available in a Limited Edition walnut veneer with some beautiful added features, including; the latest WBT-nextgen binding posts, a new-look super-tweeter with protection bar and Harbeth branded British-made audio grade poly capacitors. To celebrate the sophistication of these models, each speaker will include the Harbeth 40th Anniversary limited edition front and back badges and a new magnetic anniversary grille badge. A matching walnut stand is also available from Hi-Fi Racks.
In addition to this, our anniversary products include custom bi-wire links on the SHL5plus model; custom Harbeth internal cables; new 40th Anniversary box labels and Harbeth branded cotton bags.
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.
