Thank you for the kind words, Physiomat. 

The Harbeth fit my musical preferences perfectly; I typically go through a lot of equipment, but I've had Harbeth in my system longer than any other component.

Your system looks great (and I am sure sounds great)

I love the overall simplicity of your system and those Harbeth WOW! I know they sound great and they even look better!!  

I almost went with the P3ESR in my own system but finally went with the KEF LS50 (which are $1000 cheaper here in Canada). the LS50 sound quality is on par with the Habeth P3ESR but they can't compete on look!

Congrats on a beautiful system!

Thanks, Jafant. My goal was to keep the system simple and enjoyable.

I found the Mountain Wood blocks at Home Goods, they were only $39 so I bought a few of them. 

You can also find them on Amazon ($49 + $12 for shipping). They are the 16"x16" Acacia extra thick (2 1/2").

I am digging those Mountainwoods blocks under your gear. Where would I find this product? Nice system and pics!

AirTight ATM 2 is superb match with your SHL5 :)

Thank you @oleschool . I can see you're a fan of AZ products as well. 

I've always wanted to hear Robert's speakers, but haven't come upon the opportunity. How do you like your Adagios?

Don't get me wrong, I love tubes--my favorite amp (which I wish I didn't sell) was a Jeff Korneff 45. 

What would you gentlemen suggest as a good Tube amp match for Harbeth? 

I tried a Rogue Cronus Magnum and Line Magnetic 518.

The Harbeth are the eucalyptus finish, however, if you looks closely you can see the stands are cherry. They matched my previous SHL5s. 

The cabinet is an inexpensive piece that I ordered from JC Penney a couple years ago. It's actually pretty well built and serves it's purpose.

Very nice looking system!  What finish is that on the Harbeths?  And what type of equipment cabinet are you using?  They both look great.

Thank you!

I find the Harbeths sound best with a lot of power and the MF packs a 500 watt punch. I've used the SHL5+ with lower powered tube amps and didn't enjoy them nearly as much. 

My next goals are to focus on clean power (dedicated power lines and upgraded outlets) and room treatments.

Well done sir! Outstanding selection of components and cables. 

Love MF amps. The m6 is a whopping 100 amps of currents for Harbeth Super. 

What's next on the audio list?
