Just wondering, did the speakers preceded the components or did the speakers get added to the Mac gear? For me the speakers were matched to the Macs and my room (which is small)

I own ca. 30 Mcintosh amps of which I used ca 15 Mcintosh amps with 3 Harbeths Speakers (2*Harbeth P3ESR and 1 Harbeth M 30.1).

The combination between Mcintosh and Harbeths speakers are always great, but I had also great results with my Accuphase amps and Harbeths speakers. Harbeths Speakers are very easy to drive but have quite a low sensivity. Harbeths speakers love the power from Mcintosh or Accuphase amps.

Best regards
Martin

Auditioned the latest Harbeth 30.1 with an MA252 and found the mid-range a bit congested on some of the more complex (full orchestra) recordings I listened to. They did not have the up-graded 30.2 available and makes me wondering of that was a problem with the Harbeths or the MA252. Whatever, on the majority of the music I listened to it was a terrific, very musical combination.
