    Musical instruments aren't hi-fi and there's really no connection between the manufacture of the two.
    I entirely agree. Such logical flaws and invalid similes seem common in hi-fi. As a component that generates the music (together with the musician) it is fine, desirable even, for an instrument to posses a characteristic colouration or character. However, once the music reaches the hi-fi the artist has generated the sound that is intended - the hi-fi isnít yet another instrument intended to randomly add its own character to the music.

    100% Analogue

    on a slightly different point i am struck that i can buy a pair of harbeth pro audio 40.2 for around 7.5 k . now i know they are not beautiful in grey with handles but presumably they sound the same as the domestic 40.2 at 11k ish ??

    am i missing something or is that a cheaper way to get a pair of 40.2 ?

    What you're missing is the VAT. Add 20% to Canford's price and the difference between the pro and domestic products isn't so wide.

    I bought a pair of tatty grey Harbeth M20s ( the forunner to the present model ) which sounded so much better than
    LS3/5as.
    I had them resprayed in black ( by a car paint shop, for £40 ) and they looked stunning.
    Slightly regret selling them, but my black P3-ESRs are superior loudspeakers.
