Harbeth Super HL5 plus Break-in


The following is an excerpt from the Harbeth User Guide:

"After exercising your new Harbeths for just a few hours they will be fully ready for a lifetime of enjoyment".

After going to the Harbeth site it pretty much said the same thing as the user guide but added that the supertweeter would take a little longer to break-in.
My new Harbeth's sounded the same after I put on around the first 100 hours so I believed the above until around the 120-150 hour mark I noticed (or so I think) the midrange sounding more realistic to the point of more enjoyment! I don't know if I'm actually hearing an improvement or I'm just getting used to the Harbeth sound since the 5's are my first experience with Harbeth in my listening room.

I would like to hear others that have owned or still own the Super 5's and whether or not you have experienced the same thing as me or something else.

You sound like a man who is not happy. What's up with the speakers?
noromance,

When you say "What's up with the speakers?" do you mean my other posts about the Spendor D9 & Focal Kanta comparisons to the Harbeth 5's or something else? Please clarify.
By the way, I am going thru a "thing" trying to find the right speaker that turns me on while being analytical at the same time. It can be frustrating at times but I am not unhappy.
I didn't notice much if any difference in the sound of my Super HL5 Plus since they came out of their boxes. Getting my custom stands made a difference as well as experimenting with tilt and placement / toe in.
@routeman21 You're posting as far as I can see about expecting further improvement from the Harbeths. Why? What's not satisfying?
