Congrats Chris. You just ordered the best value in home audio speakers on the planet. I've listened to nearly everything up to (and above) 10K and IMHO for the money the HL5 Supers simply cannot be beat. They make music! I don't know what you are driving them with but make sure you put some power behind them. I've seen and heard them with custom stands from Sound Anchor. They are well made but rather bulky adding to the overall presence of the HL5's in the room. The folks at Harbeth like Skyland. Given the fact that the panels of the speaker are designed to flex the best stand would be a lightweight, open frame that did not interfere with the vibration of the panels. Not sure who makes one like this. Check out the Signals website. He is a Harbeth enthusiast dealer in the UK. I've seen photos of stands such as the ones I'm describing there. Also, you might want to go to the Harbeth website and join the Smartgroups discussion. Put up a post with your question and you will get a better answer than the one I'm offering here. Enjoy the speakers and don't bother trying to figure out whether you might do better with something else--unless you have 20K to spend!
