Two popular amps are naim and lfd, serving opposite ends of the harbeth camp.

I use a Manley tube integrated with only 40 watts for my rosewood M30.1s.

I think the issue is to get as much good signal from your source as possible, not the amp. Use excellent neutral interconnects and balanced power conditioner and kill the noise. I use Audience au24 sx as interconnect and well as speaker cable. Power cords from PS Audio.

Harbeth uses a simple Arcam integrated amp to voice their speakers, I remember reading. So I think a used NAD would even suffice.

Thanks for the replies, guys!
Hmmm..... this will be interesting. I guess no harm for me to try then. I have confirmed the deal for the Naim NAIT XS, hope it sounds good with the Harbeth.

Congrats bro!

Wah, there's more and more Harbeth users nowadays. BTW I heard that Manley amps are the perfect match for them. Try listening to them when you're back in Sg. One of the bros here is using it!
