What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Harbeth HL-P3ES-2

It is an axiom of speaker design that the smaller the cabinet, the more challenging the task, and when the cabinet is little bigger than a shoe box, the engineering challenges are very considerable indeed. But Harbeth are renowned for sound quality, so it’s no surprise that the Harbeth HL-P3ES-2 is indeed a most remarkable loudspeaker. Packed with enough engineering to convince the most discerning audiophile that he’s listening to the full bandwidth sound, the P3ES takes pride of place in any hi-fi or AV system.

Extensively proven in studios, outside broadcast and at home, this marvellous miniature speaker is the direct descendent of the engineering behind the Harbeth BBC LS3/5a. Cabinet construction, panel damping and response shaping are all the products of critical analysis and much tuning. Instantly recognisable for their ‘Harbeth house sound’ and occupying so little space, the HL-P3ES-2 makes possible the enjoyment of really high quality sound in locations where space is at a real premium.

Although the HL P3ES-2 is the smallest Harbeth, it inherits the SuperTunedStructure™SuperGrille™ and design philosophy from its bigger brothers. Taken together, this explains the commonality of sound - as it should be and quite independent of size, across the Harbeth range. The rest is due to our experience of live sound in the studio and concert hall and the ability to turn that into a satisfying sound at home.
