In search for speakers of "natural" sound


Hello,
I am using a pair of Harbeth speakers. However, I am not satisfied with the 'naturalness' of the sound (it could be that I am so demanding). I am looking for a pair of speakers that can produce the more natural and organic sound than Harbeth if there is any.

I know that it depends on the amp, cables, and other variables. However, let's assume that with the appropriate gears, which speakers do you think can produce the "most natural sound"? By "natural", I mean the sound that we hear directly from musical instruments, from the singer without going through any amplification.

There is a user mentioning that speakers from the past used that 'natural sound' as a reference when designed speakers. In contrast, the sound today (even the hi-end one) is to "hi-fi". He guessed it could be less people have chance to listen to live / acoustic music than before.  

Is it right?

Thank you for your experience and recommendation!
Best,
Huy.

P.S: I know that my questions are silly and dumb, please bear with me.

1. Quad ESL 57 or 63, but don't expect any deep bass and they are finicky

2. Harbeth M30.1 or 40.1, but the big ones are pretty expensive (basically BBC monitors brought into the 21st century)

3, Tannoy Red or Gold 15" (SWEET in large enclosures, SUCK in small enclosures, best with tubes)
The only speaker that can come even close to the sound of a "natural" instrument is going to be a speaker that plays back electric guitar or other instrument that uses such speaker for its amplication and tonality. As soon as ANY instrument or voice hits the diaphragm of a microphone, compression function is invoked and this is the fundamental reason no speaker (another compression function) will ever sound like a natural instrument or voice. It is why we can tell if the music from way over there is live or recorded playback. Loss of timbre, frequency and dynamics can never trick our ears into believing otherwise. The key is to find speakers and other components that do the least amount of damage. And, having said that, there's nothing we can do about the recording and mastering brought to bear on the original performance. We must always suspend our disbelief if we want to enjoy recorded music played back on an audio system.
harbeth 7es3 > mc452 > C52

great combo imo. It really was the solid state amp that made the difference.
Harbeth 30.1 are very good speakers before changing your speakers I suggest to look into upgrading cables or maybe your DAC.You didn't advise ud what is your source of spinning music maybe the problem is there ?
Never heard Harbeth speakers but from my understanding they are very natural, sense their use as studio monitors. I can attest that the most "natural" sounding speakers I have heard are any of the Magnepan line. They however require plenty of space around them and plenty of quality current to sound their best....Good Luck in your search.
