this is more about your taste. both of these products are great..the neats have the 'cool' factor nod.

I have had and used both Harbeth and Neat.
Neat makes a fine speaker. It is very fast and a little on the peaky side sometimes. Very fun (read: PRaT) to listen to.
Harbeth is more neutral and classic sounding. True to the music, not colored.
I currently have Harbeth HLP3-es2. Have had Compact 7es2 & 7es3, also Monitor 30. The Neats I have used were Neat Elite SE and Petite MK3.
