HARBETH COMPACT 7ES-3 40TH ANNIVERSARY AT BRISTOL HI-FI SHOW

Back in September, Harbeth Audio announced the Compact 7ES-3 as the fourth and final release in its limited-edition 40th Anniversary series. You will be able to meet it in real life at the Bristol Hi-Fi Show.

The iconic Compact 7ES-3 loudspeaker is now available to order in a beautiful Tamo Ash wood veneer. Additionally, the speakers get the extra enhancements of Harbeth's 40th Anniversary range including; the latest WBT-nextgen binding posts, British-made audio grade poly capacitors, and Harbeths 40th Anniversary ultra-pure OFC internal cable.

Naturally, each speaker also includes the exclusive Harbeth 40th Anniversary front and rear badges and the metallic black and gold anniversary grille badge.

Following on from its preview event hosted by KJ West One, Bristol Hi-Fi Show will be the first show to present the company's new loudspeaker to the public at large. We are in no doubt that the C7ES-3 will follow on from the success of Harbeth releasing their P3ESR 40th Anniversary at the Bristol show last year.

Alan Shaw, Harbeth owner and designer, told StereoNET:

We’re delighted to complete our landmark 40th Anniversary series with the release of a limited-edition Compact 7ES-3 loudspeaker, the descendant of my first Harbeth design. The Tamo Ash veneer has a beautiful iridescent, almost three-dimensional quality. With the added features of the 40th Anniversary range, the classic Compact 7ES-3 loudspeaker has been brought up to date with a great contemporary look whilst retaining its natural tonal balance.

Shaw adds:

I’ve been delighted with the response from customers, all over the world, to our 40th Anniversary series, which has been a very fitting tribute to this important milestone in our company's history. The Compact 7ES-3 loudspeaker has been independently described as the "the sweetheart of the line,’’ combining "nimbleness, musicality, and timbral accuracy."

We are excited to see and hear the Harbeth C7ES-3 next month. We also look forward to seeing you there too.

The Bristol Hi-Fi shows runs from Friday 22nd February through Sunday 24th February the 2019. The show will be held at the Marriott City Centre Hotel, Bristol.
