Harbeth Loudspeaker 'In your words' featuring Chris

My hifi equipment has an analogue source as well as a digital one.

I had long admired REG's equipment reviews, increasingly finding his assessments of loudspeaker virtues and vices well-aligned with my own. ...

In your words feature from Harbeth owner, Steve Paines:

I first heard about Harbeth from the November 2007 edition of Hi Fi News. They ran a feature on the history of Harbeth. The article covered the company’s history including the loudspeaker cone research project which resulted in the creation of Radial cone material. I always thought a custom designed and manufactured driver cone was a good idea and always held the project in the back of my mind. ...
