C7ES-3 40th Anniversary from Harbeth

C7ES-3 40th Anniversary from Harbeth

Whatever you ask of the C7ES-3 loudspeaker, it always delivers: perfectly. The clarity is spellbinding and brings the magic carpet ride experience to the listening room in a medium-sized enclosure.

The legendary multi-award winning medium-sized Harbeth HL C7ES-3 takes the ultra-clean Harbeth cone technology to another performance level, combining natural sound with a flair for reproducing any and every type of music.

The Harbeth secret for natural sound is the result of the meticulous attention to detail. Critically important, but hidden, is the crossover, which carefully integrates the drive units across a wider horizontal and vertical arc. Consequently,  the Compact 7ES-3 is far less critical of stand height than many speakers of this size.

The iconicC7ES-3 loudspeaker is now available to pre-order in a stunning Tamo Ash wood veneer, with the additional enhancements of the Harbeth 40th Anniversary range including; the latest WBT-nextgen bind posts, British-made audio grade poly capacitors, and Harbeths 40th Anniversary ultra-pure OFC internal cable. Each speaker will also include the exclusive Harbeth 40th Anniversary front and back badges and the metallic black and gold anniversary grille badge.

Each celebratory model will also be packaged in the new Harbeth branded cotton bags. The cabinets are handmade and feature the finest veneers. Please note that veneers vary in both colour, shade and grain structure, particularly our eucalyptus veneer.

The Compact 7ES-3 40th Anniversary Edition is available in Tamo Ash.
“Musicality, excellent 3D sound-staging, honest translating abilities, and timbral accuracy”

Rafe Arnott, Part-Time Audiophile
“Harbeth HL Compact 7ES-3 is one of most unique systems the hi-fi market can offer today. On one hand, it follows traditions, on the other hand, it is a result of a very successful attempt to catch up with the progress. Indisputably, it is an elite product and needs no advertising. But respect to traditions at the time of changes can’t be overestimated. Rule, Britain! In the sound, you do it well!”

“Highly detailed, emotive sound. Easy to drive and to listen to. Sweet treble.”
Mark Gusew, Stereo Net
“The design and engineering of the Compact 7 is so solid and sophisticated… that it sounds absolutely wonderful, retaining its essential neutrality and natural tonal balance.”
