Harbeths work very well with the Epos open-frame stands. A lot of people use Skylans, but I found they deadened the sound. IMO. They are indeed something special - if you like Harbeths. Wonderful vocal reproduction at moderate volumes. Not to critical of speaker cable. You might consider picking up some Audience AU24 cable, which is a good match and usually available here for decent prices. Don't cheap out on the stands though. They are important. I wish you hours of musical enjoyment.
I'm running my C7's with Audioquest Rockefeller's and they work well but I'm not so sure I can hear differences between cables. I also have the C7's on Skylan stands. I'd be curious to try them on open stands as Chayro suggested, I'm just not sure how I can do that without spending $500. Maybe I'll keep an eye out for some open stands on the used market. Let us know your opinion of the Luxman 550. You really know how to celebrate your Birthday. Happy Birthday. My 45th is coming up in September and I wanted to get myself a new solid state integrated but I'm going to Rome for 10 days instead.
Harbeth/luxman cont giving me satisfaction at low vol
to me 8-9.
Very sweet with a midrange to die for, very flexible amp with phono and loudness posibility very important for low vol, certainly Luxman is a good match for harbeth speakers.
The hegel HD11 is a perfect DAC to match it, very revealing that help with the sweet sometimes forgiving sound.
Excellent for vocals and cord instruments, what i noticed is i dont get fatigue of listening like i used too with more revealing forward equipment.
Sorry that i dont have much of an audio language sophistication but i assure you Luxman will be a choice to seriously consider.
Its the sec time i own the 550 A2 go figure.
