General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Harbeth 40 clone

As much as I like DIY, you are not going to get close to the Harbeth 40.2 with a DIY speaker. However, if you want to get something similar and spend a fraction of the retail cost of the 40.2, look for a used pair of Spendor SP-100 or the earlier S100. They don't come up all that frequently but when they do the price should be around $2000 to possibly $2500. The later models like the SP-100R and R2 are not the same speaker. I never compared them side by side but there are reports that the original S100 and SP-100 sound better. The earlier models will certainly cost less on the used market just due to age.
