Super HL5plus Product of the Year from Harbeth

Super HL5plus

This loudspeaker has incredible musical authority, naturalness, midrange beauty and extraordinary top-to-bottom coherence that you expect from Harbeth.


Writer Paul Seydor says, “Put simply, Alan Shaw’s new Harbeth Super HL5plus is one of the most beautiful-sounding speaker systems I’ve heard since the original Quad electrostatic. The comparison is not stated lightly: This transducer has the same musical authority, naturalness, midrange beauty, and really extraordinary top-to-bottom coherence that I’ve heard from very few dynamic speakers of any type, persuasion, or expense. The SuperHL5plus may lack the Quad’s ultimate transparency, but so do most speakers; yet it’s as transparent as just about anything I’ve heard this side of Quads, and it more than compensates with superior top- and bottom-end extension and dynamic range. Allow me to anticipate my conclusion: If I were closing up shop tomorrow as a reviewer, the only speakers I’d be inclined to add to my Quads (57s and 2805s) would be these new Harbeths because of how they make almost anything played through them sound gorgeous in a way that is completely musically natural.”
