Har­beth’s range of loud­speak­ers is now avail­able in Australia from Mel­bourne-based dis­trib­u­tor Au­dio Magic. ‘ Our goal,’ said Alek­san­dar Mak­si­movic, of Au­dio Magic, ‘is to of­fer au­dio­philes the best price-qual­ity ra­tio from brands with sev­eral decades of tra­di­tion and rep­u­ta­tion, so we’re thrilled to be ap­pointed by Har­beth to look af­ter the grow­ing band of Har­beth cus­tomers in Australia.’ Founded in 1977 by Dud­ley Har­wood, a se­nior en­gi­neer in the BBC’s Re­search Depart­ment, Har­beth’s suc­cess was partly due to Har­wood dis­cov­er­ing and patent­ing the use of polypropy­lene as a cone ma­te­rial, then us­ing it on the com­pany’s first de­sign, the Har­beth HL Mon­i­tor. Later, Har­wood de­vel­oped the ‘Ra­dial’ cone, which is now a fea­ture on all Har­beth loud­speak­ers, from the tiny P3ESR right up to the Mon­i­tor 40.1. Au­dio Magic re­cently ap­pointed Mel­bourne’s Class-A Au­dio as its first Aus­tralian re­tailer for Har­beth. ‘ There has been no Har­beth re­tailer for a long time in Australia, so this is good news for au­dio lovers,’ said Kevin You, of Class-A Au­dio.
