The High End in Munich will see the official launch of ecologically-sound stands for each Harbeth loudspeaker. Hand-mit_harbethmade in southern Bavaria, Harbeth say they are “‘green’ to the core and the result of loving care and personal attention to detail”.

The new stands are said to be made from sustainably-sourced beech timber from German forests which is transformed into hand-made stands during a labour-intensive process in Füssen. Everything about the products is natural: the power used is from hydro, glues are water-based and solvent-free, the coating from oil and wax. Even the company’s bank is selected because of its  ecological credentials.

Traditional carpentry skills ensure rigidity; not glues, metals or plastics. Even the (eco-plastic and vegetable starch) packaging is sustainable and the transport used is gas-powered.
The duo of Eva-Maria Weichmann and Ralf Sieg give a percentage of their profits to good causes including Rainforest Rescue and German conservation projects.

“Having met Eva and Ralf, and learned about the skill and dedication they use to produce beautiful eco-stands, they are to be commended”, said Harbeth’s MD Alan Shaw. “Theirs is a genuine labour of love and with true regard for the environment.”

You can see Harbeth in Hall 3 and Stand F21 at Munich High End and rumour has it they will be releasing something very special….but they were remaining tight lipped about that one.
