Incorporating the improvements developed in the justly-famed Anniversary Editions, the XD series are the best Harbeth yet!
The Monitor 40.2 loudspeaker The Reference
- Recommended as 'the most musical monitor ever'.
Monitor 40.3 XD 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.
