    If I hadn't found a pair of HB2's left outside a house in the rain to be dumped and renewed the midrange foams I would never have known how good they were. They were quite expensive when new. Of course the size and weight of them makes them unattractive to some these days and they would seek something more "modern" looking. IMO there is no real substitute for size and the 10" bass of the HB2's is a good one IMO.

    Will be interesting to see how many different models they bring out and at what sort of prive level.

    I think price is in the region of three grand. Even allowing for inflation that's about 7 times more than the original HB1 cost in the 1980s.

    Of course it isn't the same design, not by a long-shot.

    Got me excited for a couple of minutes but then I saw the price.

    Back in the day we struggled to get them in fast enough as part of a budget system - Rega Planar-3, Creek 4040 and Heybrook HB1, our go to choice but the price has escalated somewhat even bearing in mind the passing years.

    They can go to hell for all I care. Extremely overpriced.

    Surely the dimensions are all wrong for an HB1. Look more like my Heybrook solos.

    That's because they have "a twenty-first-century cabinet"
