The Monitor 40.2 redefines the term ‘Reference Loudspeaker’. Built on the success of the global award-winning M40.1, this new generation Harbeth achieves the biggest leap forward in sonic supremacy since the first of the series back in 1998. A modern sound legend. More efficient, adaptable to a wide range of listening environments, perfectly balanced across the entire audio band, more transparent, engaging and easier to drive, the M40.2 takes the acclaimed Harbeth sound to a new level of realism. With a mesmerising and addictive presentation, Harbeth’s flagship produces a grand, dynamic and unforgettable sonic experience. A loudspeaker certainly, but not a speaker listening experience. Close your eyes and be magically transported through space and time to the recording venue. Relive it afresh. With some beautiful added features, including; the latest WBT-nextgen binding posts, custom Harbeth internal cables and Harbeth branded British-made audio grade poly capacitors. Each speaker will include the Harbeth 40th Anniversary limited edition front and back badges, as well as a metallic black and gold anniversary grille badge. In addition to this, each celebratory model will also be packaged in our new Harbeth branded cotton bags.
