Harbeth Feature Article

"I have now owned three generations of Harbeth loudspeakers. Like other neurotic audiophiles, I've experimented with many other brands and models over the years. In the end, after we've finally recovered from audiophile nervosa we tend to return to what always seemed right in the first place. The Compact 7's just feel right. I'm pleased to have the 'Harbeth Sound' back in my home care of Acoustic Sounds. Thank you." – Michael Jones, Acoustic Sounds customer

"…practically a textbook on how to make a low-coloration, high-accuracy, compact two-way." – The Absolute Sound's 2007 Golden Ear Awards, Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound, August 2007

"...Indeed, for sheer neutrality the 7ES-3 rivals the Harbeth Monitor 40, and in the 2kHz-4kHz range even trumps by reference Quads...I cannot overstate how fantastically these speakers reproduce ambience, whether real or synthesized, large spaces or small...Among major changes, the 7ES-3 has an updated tweeter, a new surround for the woofer, and a substantially redesigned crossover at a slightly lower frequency...The 7ES-3 gets it right - preserving the baritone but restoring what upper-range lightness it has...I am slack-jawed that Shaw has achieved such high resolution and tonal neutrality without the 7s sounding in the least clinical, analytical or edgy." - Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound, April/May 2007
