Harbeth Compact 7

Description

Whatever you ask of the Compact 7ES-3, it always delivers: perfectly. The clarity is spellbinding and brings the ‘magic carpet ride’ experience to the listening room in a medium-sized enclosure.

The world-class HL Compact 7ES-3 takes the ultra-clean Harbeth-exclusive RADIAL2 cone technology to another performance level. This medium-sized loudspeaker combines natural sound with a flair for reproducing any and every type of music.

The Harbeth secret for natural sound is the result of the meticulous attention to detail.

Critically important, but hidden, is the crossover for seamless integration of the drive units across a wider horizontal and vertical arc meaning that the Compact 7ES-3 is far less critical of stand height than many speakers of this size.
