Default Harbeth 30.2 40th Anniversary

That would be good too. Not to go off topic, but I have no idea why the us distributor jacks up the accuphase prices so much. Makes it unobtanium, when it’s not nearly so bad in Japan.

Given the fanatical build quality and attention to detail of Accuphase makes it a screaming bargain in Japan at roughly $7k for E-650, here at $16k it is insultingly overpriced. $14k buys a Gryphon Diablo 120 or for even less, the Mark Levinson 585 both of which are simply outstanding.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the 30.2. I upgraded my old 30.1 to these a month ago and I am gobsmacked how good they are. I have had speakers 3 x price of the Harbeth, and the 30.2 are just so much better at tone, rhythm and depth!
The noticeable improvements over the 30.1 are depth and dynamic attack. The bass too is tighter and punchier.
I have them paired to Accuphase separates and there is great synergy going on.
Enjoy the music.

At what frequency does the mid/woofer crossover to the tweeter?

Thanks and you as well! Which stands are you using?
I ordered the TonTraeger stands made in Germany. Supposedly they sound the best with Harbeth but I have no other stands to compare to. I can only say the 30.2 sound great! https://www.tontraeger-audio.com/lang/en/

I went with Primaluna HP Integrated to try something new. Not sure if this is the final destination but I had some other project in mind for it later anyways.
