Headroom's Desktop System

"But what I really want you to listen to is this."

Headroom's Tyll Hertsens directed my attention toward a small, attractive desktop system: Harbeth HL-P3ES-2 loudspeakers; heavy-duty, adjustable Headroom speaker stands; Headroom 50Wpc Desktop bi-amp pair; cables and interconnects and computer.

The system is designed for extreme near-field listening. Seriously up close and personal. I sat in the seat and slid in close, making as though I was at work on the keyboard. Again, I selected the Pinback track.

Superb sound. With solid stereo imaging. And intense impact.

"This is completely terrible," I thought. "I would never get any work done."
