They are certainly beautiful but I would like to hear them play some trad Irish or UK folk melodies, the sidebar shows them only doing covers, although they do them in their own style and well,
I think their harps must have pickups on them, maybe RF transmitters internally or something, the sound board looks way too small for acoustic volume. You notice there are no mics showing in the video which doesn't mean they aren't there but they would have to be several feet away to be out of camera view.
On the other hand, it could be just a video using a home video camera which does very good sound and video quality if you use a tripod. Like you say, you do have to up the volume a bit, it is a bit on the low side. Sounds good though. I am just spoiled by the likes of Derek Bell and the like.
