The Monitor 40.2 loudspeaker The Reference

  • Recommended as 'the most musical monitor ever'.

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.
