We are glad that PH has also found synergy with the Lavardin IS for his Harbeth loudspeakers, way beyond his previous amplifier.  He can now finally listen without wanting to turn off the system after a short period.  Once again, the system is transformed for the better, without doubt.

 

Listening to the system gives credibility to Harbeth's design goals on these speakers, as a replacement for the venerable LS3/5A.  The system indeed reminded us of an LS3/5A in the room, tiny speakers that sound bigger than they look, with none of the tricks of other small speakers like boosting up the midbass artificially to sound big.  In this sense, the Lavardin IS helps bring out the speakers' true character.  The CD player is alright, but PH knows it can be better, and we have recommended him a Naim.  (* The CD player has been changed already to the Naim CD5X CD player.)
