SHL5plus Speakers (Original Version)
We have stock remaining of the now discontinued original version of the Super HL5+. These are now very difficult to find. These are brand new, sealed speakers.
Harbeth’s Super HL5plus produces breath-taking transparency, a huge soundstage and total immersion in the performance. This speaker creates a rich bass and sweet midrange that brings acoustic music alive.
This is the latest generation of Dudley Harwood’s original HL-Monitor: the cabinet is still engineered in the BBC tradition of removable ‘thin-wall’ panels for a totally true-to-life sound.
Retaining the classic ‘two cubic foot’ proportions found in the very best BBC monitors, the HL5plus relies on the exclusive Harbeth-made 200mm RADIAL2™ bass/mid driver. This produces a big, warm and powerful sound that underpins the incredible midband clarity.
The 25mm main tweeter is augmented by a 20mm SuperTweeter for an extended and even dispersion to the upper edge of the audio band.
