  1. Good call, made me smile. I am however helping out with record sales at the moment . Now I'm not saying it's sensible, but it makes me happy !
  2. Now that's a quality response !
  3. Nothing wrong with consumer choice for the consumer with poor taste (sorry to anyone who likes the, erm, pastel aesthetic !) Edit - Actually you know, on 2nd and 3rd glance I can see the appeal. I recall reading the Quad 33 took some stick from traditionalists when it first appeared. Anyway, the marketing strategy clearly aligns with a Pink Floyd track....................
  4. Hi Fi Corner have been selling 'Graded' on eBay at £1500 - if of interest may be worth contacting them. Otherwise, good luck

    Harbeth XD range

    I think most intelligent folk here will judge the speaker on it's performance/ appeal and disregard the chatter. Same with all brands and boxes I'd have thought.

    My view was that the term XD didn't really align with the heritage of the brand. However, it's not my business, both in terms of expressing my two pennorth and literally.

    I've never really understood this statement either but I still love his speakers 😁. I dug a bit deeper by reading the HUG forum but nodded off !

    My personal to experience of the P3esr vs. the Anniversary edition reflects this (b). The latter were beguiling in terms of transparency and openness, but I preferred the vanilla version. Not night and day mind. And a different speaker though I've read there's little difference in sound, though of course have no experience of this. Anyway, I'll always chip in on a Harbeth thread 😉

    Thanks each, just the 4 left and then this is it for re-issues. I'll be doing a much longer list of stuff earlier next week and will do so at what I believe to be attractive prices. Some may not be that desirable but you lot have varied tastes . Cheers. You'll just have to wait patiently for Saturday Nigh Fever !
