Rounding off a record-breaking year for global awards, this month sees two more high-caliber accolades for the Harbeth Super HL5plus from international magazines in the USA and Poland.

This is the highest recognition this leading publication can bestow on a manufacturers product, explains Trevor Butler from Harbeths marketing team. It is further recognition of Alan Shaws design prowess as his latest designs gain worldwide acclaim.

Polish-based High Fidelity.pl has awarded its Best Sound of 2015 to the Super HL5plus. Editor Wojciech Pacula comments: thank you very much for great sound and music it was sheer joy and real pleasure to listen to it!

This clutch of latest awards rounds off an incredible year for Harbeth.
The British loudspeaker brand, established in 1977, goes from strength to strength as demand increases for its hand-crafted loudspeakers which are designed to put music first and foremost whether in hi-fi systems or studio installations.

This is the fourth time in designer Alan Shaws career that Harbeth has been rewarded with the audio industrys prestigious award for audio excellence.

The magazines Paul Seydor is busy reviewing the loudspeaker for the next issue.

To collect a fourth Golden Ear for the Harbeth Monitoring Series is truly awesome.

The model is being honoured by audio writers around the world as award after award is bestowed on the model, from America to Russia and Japan to Germany, as it delghts and entertains.

Congratulations Harbeth !!! Wonderful news to hear. Keep wondering how the designer is able to add more and more to the existing design which is already a jewel. Nothing beats Harbeth when it comes to listening highly intimate music.
