Brian Damkroger's Review System

Brian Damkroger's System

The Harbeth P3ESRs shared time in my system with a slightly larger one-way design, the Audience ClairAudient 2+2 that I review elsewhere in this issue ($5000/pair), as well as with my reference Wilson Audio Sophia 2s ($16,000/pair when last available). For the bulk of their time here, the P3ESRs were driven by Mark Levinson No.20.6 monoblock amplifiers, a Placette Active Line Stage, and a mostly vinyl diet of recordings played on a Spiral Groove SG-2 turntable with Centroid tonearm and Lyra Titan i cartridge. I used Audience cables and AdeptResponse power conditioners, and the gear rested on my Finite Elemente Pagode rack.—Brian Damkroger

Might the apparently upgraded P3ESR-XD merit remeasuring of its off-axis response?

I would also be very curious to see how the XD update has affected measured and subjective performance (especially measured).
