The world's best-loved loudspeakers

Welcome to Harbeth's Autumn newsletter!

As 2018 starts drawing to a close, we have our 'C7ES-3 40th Anniversary loudspeaker' release event hosted by - KJ West One - to report on. More about that to follow.
Our P3ESR 40th Anniversary loudspeaker receives glowing praise from the press, news from hi-fi shows: Audio Fest (America), Westduetsche Hifi Tage (Germany) and Bangkok's Audio and Video Show (Thailand) to present. We also have winners of our 'Show us your Harbeth' feature.   

C7ES-3 40th Anniversary launch evening

Our iconic loudspeaker

We were pleased to present our fourth and final model in our celebratory 40th Anniversary series; the 'Compact 7ES-3' to guests at luxury UK hi-fi store, KJ West One.  

Alan Shaw, Harbeth designer said ''It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening at KJ West One where we demonstrated the new Compact 7ES-3 Anniversary speakers. Amongst the comedy, drama, jazz, rock and acoustic music was a full scale orchestral recording of a Respighi piece which went down very well. It was on my 0.1% short list because to my ears, it sounded extremely well balanced i.e. no undue emphasis given to any part of the audio spectrum compared with what I'd expect hearing the live piece. Thanks to everyone who attended, it was great to meet you.''

A guest commented '' Thank you for the most enjoyable and interesting evening at KJ West One. It was lovely to hear the new C7ES-3 40th Anniversary loudspeaker and to see its stunning finish.  It is always very insightful to hear Alan talking.''

Harbeth in the press


''magnificent achievement''

Chris Kelly from, the-ear, fails to restrain his enthusiasm for our Harbeth P3ESR 40th Anniversary loudspeaker, commenting ''Having lived with the 40th Anniversary P3ESR loudspeakers for a while now though, I take my hat off to Alan Shaw, the owner of Harbeth and the designer of their magnificent range of loudspeakers, and his team at the Harbeth factory. These loudspeakers are magnificent achievement, not for their size or for the price, just being so good.'' Read the full review here

Harbeth Travels

For the second month running we have a hi-fi show special. In October our speakers were heard far and wide from: Mountain Audio Fest to Westdeutshe Hifi Tage and BAV show in Bangkok. 


Mountain Audio Fest

America distributor Fidelis presented our 40th Anniversary products: the P3ESR, Monitor 30.2 and Monitor 40.2 loudspeakers at America's, biggest hi-fi Show of the year - Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, reporting ''I just returned from a knock-out of a show at RMAF2018. The Harbeth Monitor 40.2 40th Anniversary loudspeakers flat-out rocked the show.  As usual, it was a pleasure to meet so many new faces and revisit all the familiar ones. This show seemed to have a certain magic to it going on since Day 1, where the music was just flowing right from the beginning in both rooms that I was exhibiting. The feedback that both rooms received from show attendees and members of the press, was simply outstanding.''

Westdeutsche Hi-fi Tage

German distributor - Input Audio - demonstrated our Monitor 30.2 40th Anniversary loudspeaker at Westdeutsche Hi-fi Tage, commenting:''The Harbeth sound is very impressive, considering I played the loudspeakers through a small Creek Evolution 50A integrated Amp. The stunning results with the equipment combination proved to be a massive hit with the hi-fi show attendees; with two customers ordering speakers.''
