Harbeth Live - R!ches Winner

Posted 1st October 2020

A new episode to the much anticipated Harbeth Live series is out now! For the recording, Harbeth owner – Alan Shaw – travelled to Canterbury’s Colyer-Fergusson Hall at the University of Kent, where the “staggeringly talented” UK artist Richard Nivarro, commonly known as R!ches, described the “incredible venue” in which he performed his newest tracks.

He went on to praise the Harbeth Monitor 40.2’s while listening back to the recording “To come back and hear the performance at the Coyler-Fergusson Hall is amazing. To have the speakers like this that allow the live feel to come straight back to us is incredible. We were then able to pick out and change fine details about the sound and hear things that I never expected to.  A brilliant experience.”

Alan, who was onsite for the recording, said  “it was the best venue and acoustics yet” and described the final performance as “perfect”.  

Harbeth speakers played a pivotal role in the mastering of the production with project partners Duet media commenting “If you can’t accurately hear what’s going on in a recording then you can’t make any critical judgement. The speakers and the acoustics of the room you’re in are very important in the mixing environment. It’s not a case of them being flattering in the sound. High-end speakers should be truthful to what has been recorded. Harbeths are very true to the music and sound, a natural sound is essential when editing, as is quality speakers, which Harbeths most certainly are.”
