Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Harbeth Models Comparison

I read your review and appreciate your sending me a link to it.

I noticed in particular the phrase "decent bass," which I take to mean, at least in part the low frequency limitations of a 200mm driver in a medium-sized cabinet.

I listen to a lot of acoustic music, vocals and opera, where I believe Harbeths would excell, but I also listen to a lot of Late Romantic symphonic music (Mahler, Bruckner and so on) where huge forces are involved, playing at great volume with much bass content, and I wonder how a speaker this small would fare with such music?

I might add that I do not listen at traumatizing levels that would likely overtax such a speaker physically.

May I ask to what did you upgrade your main system?

Many thanks,
