Hi-Fi Corner Showroom Launch

"... we believe in selling through demonstration and expertise.
It’s about experiencing the emotion."

At the end of May our Scottish dealer, Hi-Fi Corner launched their stunning new showroom in Edinburgh. We were delighted to be a part of this exciting weekend by demonstrating our SHL5plus 40th anniversary model. Designer and MD, Alan Shaw presented several times over the two day event, providing an insight into the fascinating world of speaker design which was well received by those in attendance.

The Netherlands, 'Classic Albums' Show

A magical Harbeth experience

Netherlands Harbeth dealer Beter Beeld & Geluid recently organised a 'Classic Albums' show, highlighting two of our
40th anniversary models pairing them with electronics by Luxman.

Manager Garmt van der Zel reports on the event -

"All those attending were instructed to bring their favourite albums and many great records were played. It certainly showed vinyl still is very much alive and sounding better than ever!

In the biggest demo room, the mighty M40.2 40th Anniversary was demonstrated in the following system:

    • Luxman L-509X integrated amplifier
    • Luxman EQ-500 phono stage
    • Bergmann Audio Magne turntable using Charisma Reference One MC cartridge 
    • Cables by Cardas and Luxman

In a smaller room, the C7ES-3 40th anniversary model was making magical music using the following equipment:

    • Luxman CL-38uC tube pre-amplifier with built in phono stage
    • Luxman MQ-88uC tube power amplifier
    • Luxman PD-171A turntable using Charisma Audio MC-2 cartridge
    • Cables by Cardas and Luxman

The tube system in the smaller room was playing at a level way above everybody's expectations. The Harbeth magical and open midrange was really showcased with the Luxman tube amplifiers, playing extremely musically adept, colourful, spacious and captivating!"

Welcome to the Harbeth Family

Common Wave, USA and THE show

New American Harbeth dealer, Common Wave are offering an immersive musical experience to downtown LA. Not your typical audio store, Common Wave is more than being a "place" to buy audio equipment, but is a "space" to sit and enjoy music, art, furniture, and a sense of "coolness" as well. Owned and run by Wes Katzir, the team also host a different artist each month for an intimate musical performance.

They recently exhibited at THE show in the USA, where they showcased the SHL5plus anniversary model, described by
Part-Time Audiophile as having "a concise, crisp and forward presentation that revealed tons of detail" and by
Audio Stream as "a system that breathed music with real ease at higher volume levels and without a trace of fatigue at either frequency extreme".
