The P3 ESR has now been improved as part of the new XD range. Harbeth’s entry level bookshelf speaker is now better than ever and even more so one of the best bookshelf speakers on the planet.
Harbeth’s development team has, once again, redefined what is possible from this use anywhere loudspeaker.
The completed redesign maximises the performance potential of the Harbeth exclusive 115mm RADIAL2™ Cone Technology. Delivering breathtaking transparency, accurate bass and dynamic integration across the audio spectrum.
Arguably one of the most advanced speakers in its class, the P3ESR XD is capable of being used in a wide range of listening environments and is optimised to present an easy electrical load to even low powered amplifiers.
The XD model surpasses that of the incredibly popular 40th Anniversary model which was released to wide acclaim two years previous. Compared to the previous standard P3 ESR model, we believe they give a much wider soundstage and larger sound which gets close in scale to the previous 30.1 speaker. Which is incredible considering the size of the cabinets.
We find these are often the perfect speaker for someone who wants a high-end system in a limited sized room. Paired with likes of a Naim Uniti Nova, you get a simple system that can do it all and sounds exceptional. Harbeths are always built to exceptional standards. The aescthetics of the P3 ESR XD model has been slightly improved whilst keeping the classic Harbeth look that people love so much.
