The original C7 entered production about 23 years ago, and is memorable because it was the launch vehicle for the Harbeth RADIAL™ bass/midrange driver, with our proprietary cone material, a feature of all Harbeths ever since. Whatever you ask of the Compact 7ES-3 loudspeaker, 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 legendary multi-award-winning medium-sized Harbeth HL Compact 7ES-3 takes the ultra-clean Harbeth cone technology to another performance level, combining 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, which carefully integrates the drive units across a wider horizontal and vertical arc. Consequently, the Compact 7ES-3 is far less critical of stand height than many speakers of this size. With the additional enhancements of the Harbeths XD range including; the latest WBT-nextgen bind posts, British-made audio grade poly capacitors, and Harbeths XD ultra-pure OFC internal cable.
