"My small (14' long by 12' wide by 9' high) room let Harbeth's P3ESR 40th Anniversary Editions play medium-size music at satisfying volumes without distracting levels of distortion. If your room is the size of mine or smaller, you're not a bass freak, and you seek a modest but exquisite and keep-forever loudspeaker, Harbeth's P3ESR 40th Anniversary Edition is the best-built, most natural-sounding small speaker I have ever heard."—Herb Reichert, Stereophile
The XD Details
The P3ESR XD is the evolution of the 40th Anniversary model. The sealed box 2-way design. The sound is more resolving, and a touch more forward than the standard P3ESR. It still uses British-made poly capacitors and Harbeth's ultrapure copper internal cable.
Harbeth's proprietary RADIAL2™ technology from the larger Harbeth speakers has trickled down (more like "over") to the heart of the P3ESR loudspeaker. The driver is designed in-house, the special 110mm (5") bass/midrange driver offers the legendary clarity and naturalness of the larger Harbeth speakers.
Breathtaking transparency, realistic bass, amazing vocal reproduction and fantastic holographic imaging give the P3ESR XD a grand, captivating, and transparent sound.
Not only is the P3ESR XD loudspeaker capable of being used in a wide range of listening environments, but it is optimized to present an easy electrical load to even low-powered amplifiers.
We Recommend the P3ESR XD for state of the art desktop and small space listening environments where you can place it about a foot from the wall behind it (minimum) and sit up to 8 feet away from them. This is not a headbanger's speaker, but is capable of creating a captivating listening experience with nearly any genre of music at lower to moderate listening levels.
