Steve Guttenberg has posted a review of the Harbeth P3ESR loudspeakers ($2095/pair) at InnerFidelity. His conclusions:
“I love these speakers, but they’re not for folks who really want full-range monitors – with gutsier dynamics, more bass slam and greater treble extension – and if that’s what you’re after the Adam ARTist 3s, or better yet, their larger siblings, the ARTist 5s might be preferable. Then there’s the price, the P3ESRs ain’t cheap – pairs run $2,095 in cherry and $2,195 in rosewood or black ash — and you need to spend some dough on an amp to make them go. Considering their build and sound quality I think the Harbeths are priced fairly, and when I sent them back to the distributor I was sorry to see them go. The pleasures afforded by the very best desktop audio systems continue to amaze me, an old-school, two-channel, audiophile. ”
