Well, first of all...let's clear something up: Harbeths are NOT, some cute, little, unknown, boutique brand. They are among, some of the best speakers in the world!
That being said...it has a definite voice, that is not going to be to the liking of all. Their approach, is of the utmost British old-school; they don't have booming bass, nor sizzling highs. With Harbeths, it is ALL about that middle
That is why, IMO only...I wouldn't dream, of Harbeth in an HT. For HT...my
focus, is clarity and impact. I wouldn't say that's a strength of Harbeth, so why spend 4-5 figures, for an ill-fitting speaker. Has nothing to do with "incompetence".
