  1. A case of patience and delicate removal and perhaps try again?

    Valve amp suggestions for Harbeth 40.1

    Lol.. glad you don’t care about measurements and debates! Neither do I lol. i like what I like and hear what I hear.. ive heard your speakers on Krell, ARC, Sugden and Pathos.. loved them all but Pathos was pretty lush!

    Valve amp suggestions for Harbeth 40.1

    That’s a fair enough point as they are quite industrial looking. i just know from experience with an acquaintance, they are very dynamic and I also cannot stand bright and hard kit. Does it definitely have to be valve?

    Took the plunge again....Harbeth & Sugden

    The Rega is an excellent amp imo and few come close. One that doesn’t run out of steam with many speakers on the end of it. What Class A does as you say, deliver plenty of current and the Harbeths are a 6ohm load so in truth, the Sugden is delivering a little bit more that would suggest. In addition, the current delivery is much more ‘instant’ with a Class a enabling it to deliver a fulsome sound immediately after warm up

    Just proving that the brand do what it says on the tin.. like anything, system matching is critical but less so with Harbeth

    Forgot to say that I have been running them with simple van damme cables too and impressed but will try my TQ Black 2 next week and see what difference they will make..
