The Harbeth Super HL5Plus is a throwback to the classic British monitors of the 1970s and 1980s, and that's a compliment!
Small British monitor speakers were all the rage with American audiophiles back in the 1970s, and when you hear the current Harbeth P3ESR, you'll know why.
At first glance desktop/computer speakers don't look all that different from small hi-fi speakers, but they serve different needs.
The ADL by Furutech Esprit is exactly the sort of component that can elevate the sound of a high-end desktop system.
Wadia's USB digital-to-analog converter/stereo amplifier is a bona-fide triumph! Desktop audio never sounded this good before.
Reviewers have opinions, just like everybody else. The difference is audio critics have listened to a vast range of products.
