The Monitor 40.2 redefines the term ‘Reference Loudspeaker’. Built on the success of the multi award-winning M40.1, this new generation is the biggest leap forward in sonic supremacy since the design’s launch in January 1998.

More efficient, more adaptable to a wide range of listening environments, perfectly balanced and more transparent and engaging, the M40.2 takes the Harbeth sound to a new level.

With its mesmerising and addictive sound-stage, Harbeth’s reference monitor produces a grand, dynamic and unforgettable sonic experience – far beyond conventional loudspeaker listening.

Warmly welcomed by audiophiles at the recent Hong Kong high-end show, attended by 50,000, the M40.2 sets a new reference point in loudspeakers. It offers, according to ‘Audio’ magazine, ultimate musicality. The review team speak of, “an exhilarating, genuine presentation”, and one which is “dynamic and tonally balanced – worthy of Reference Class status”.

With improved efficiency, a more transparent and engaging sound, the M40.2 takes the Harbeth experience to a new level in a wider range of listening environments.
