The M30.2 40th Anniversary model has received Class A accreditation in Stereophile's Recommended Component 2019 list. Described by Herb Reichert as "the most tuneful, accurate, neutral, fun, and music-loving stand-mounted two-way speaker I've heard."
The P3ESR 40th Anniversary model was also featured and in another recent review by Herb, was described as "the best-built most natural-sounding small speaker I have ever heard."
Bernd of Input Audio said "We achieved one of the best sound of the show as visitors confirmed several times, saying the Harbeth sound was - "relaxed and natural as always"".
i-fidelity.net commented - "the Harbeth M30.2 40th Anniversary speaker does three things: music, music, and music"
On the 7th September, Dutch Harbeth dealer Beter Beeld & Geluid again organised a 'Classic Albums' show. People were invited to bring along their favourite classic albums, which were played on two systems. Demoing the SHL5+ 40th Anniversary model with a Luxman L-590AXII class A amplifier, as well as the C7ES-3 40th Anniversary model with a Luxman LX-380 valve amplifier.
Garmt Van Der Zel of Beter Beeld & Geluid said - "Both systems sounded exceedingly pleasant and musically inviting according to the people who attended, with one of them exclaiming that he had never heard the Harbeth speakers sound so good before."
It's official! We are pleased to welcome our new Canadian distributor - Tri-Cell Enterprises - to the Harbeth family. More information coming soon.
"The P3ESR is a brilliant speaker in the classic British tradition....probably the finest shoebox-sized speakers available today."Find your local Long Live Vinyl stockist
"Harbeth owners really do love their speakers" states Paul Seydor in 'The Absolute Sound' review of our M40.2 anniversary model.
"I happily report that the 40th Anniversary version of the Harbeth Monitor 40.2 is every inch the stock 40.2 I wrote so enthusiastically about, and in a few areas it’s actually even a tad or three better. With either version, however, you simply can’t go wrong."
Are Hi-fi speakers suitable for the living room interior? ''I often pondered around the aesthetics of loudspeakers and the suitability, when my partner spoke about buying new speakers. Of course, the sound of the speakers is essential, but to me - the appearance of the speakers is even more important.
Speakers don't have to hide or fade in the living room, they should become a natural part of every living room. Once my eyes got used to them, the cherry finish fits perfectly with the parquet of the living room. Harbeth speakers are designed to be mounted to an open (frame) stands, which in turn, lightens the overall appearance and reproduces the very best sound.''Read more
