The Spendors held their own in the mid-range territory though.
Thank you @JohnVF ! The SHL-5’s were the speakers that started me down the Harbeth path. Just not enough room for them to develop in my listening space.I big part of me wishes I'd kept mine, and found another way to fund the SHL-5s. You live, you learn.
I'm really happy they're working out for you! Lovely speakers.
It's just the port on the SHL-5, no? Drivers are all vertical. Maybe ease of construction or possibly something to do with BBC tradition? If it doesn't affect sound don't worry about it? Sounds like something Alan Shaw would do.Does anyone know why Harbeth does not mirror image the baffles on some of the speaker models?
Same here, I quickly got rid of my 4412’s (had two rights) and almost sold my maderas because of the lack of symmetry (in my mind this affects even sound dispersion....)The ports on the 30.1 are also both on the same side. It’s super cosmetic, but it does irk me a little.
