This pair are a lightly later version than others I have seen offered. Most notable were the moulded foam grills but these have completed rotted in storage. A replacement may be possible but I actually prefer nothing in the way of the drivers. The early versions have strips of fabric as a baffle around the tweeter so this might give some benefits. The other difference evident is that the veneers are continued around the back edge and the sides overlap the rear slightly.
This hides the plywood edges seen on the earlier boxes. They sound fantastic but my room has no solid rear wall to position them in front of and this leads to a "bass light" response. I have reluctantly decided to stick with my trusty Heybrook HB2s which have in common an Audax tweeter but a rear-ported reflex cabinet, which makes them better suited to an open position.The item "Harbeth ML Monitor speakers s/n 186 Excellent condition, with original box" is in sale since Friday, October 11, 2019.
