Default Harbeth users check in

So, for what is renowned as one of the most musical speakers ever, we see to have very few users here...

I just ordered some Compact 7es3's to add to my now beloved Luxman 590 A-II


Let's hear from other owners.

Nice combo and in my small room they are just wright. If I had a larger room I'd be looking at the M30 or M40 as the 7es3's seem a bit light on the bottom end. But all in all the Harbeth's are a good match for the Luxman.

I have some SHL5s with my Leben CS600, and they're great. I plan on moving to a Monbrison/Montrachet combo soonish so we shall see how they go with Shindo.

I had the SHL5's and Luxman D 05 / 550A II combo. Was very nice. Found the 5's needed a little welly to get the most out of them: they liked decoupling from their stands - or so I found.

Hard to get to sound bad; hard to get to sound great IMHO. The Luxxies make them sound great IMHO.

I too have always wanted to hear some 3,s in a bookshelf set up.

I love a room lined with bookshelves and a pair of quality monitors tastefully tucked on the shelves.

Stephen,

I actually don't have the Latour. I have the Lafite and use them now in my main system. I use the C7es-3s in a second system with a Brio R and an Oppo 95.

The desire for an all Shindo system hit me and I replaced the C-7s with the Lafite. The Cortese was really not enough power for the Harbeths, even though my listening room is small. 12x13

Regards,

Bill

BTW, I really covet your 301 system. I'm awfully tempted at some point to order one from Matt. He tells me I'll think something is wrong with my current TT once I replace it with the Shindo.
