Harbeth Super HL5 Speakers (Pair)


Product Description

Super HL5

Manufacturer's Description:
*Note:  Please check with us on availability depending on finish.

Harbeth's Super HL5 produces breathtaking transparency, a huge soundstage and total immersion in the performance. This speaker creates a rich bass and sweet midrange that brings acoustic music alive.

This is the sixth-generation of Dudley Harwood's HL-Monitor: the cabinet is still engineered in the BBC tradition of removable 'thin-wall' panels for a totally true-to-life sound. 

Retaining the classic 'two cubic foot' proportions found in the very best BBC monitors, the HL5 relies on the exclusive Harbeth-made 200mm RADIAL™ bass/mid driver. This produces a big, warm and powerful sound that underpins the incredible midband clarity. 

The 20mm main tweeter is augmented by a SuperTweeter for an extended, smooth and even dispersion to the upper edge of the audio band. The crossover gives a smooth system response.
