Famous British loudspeaker manufacturer Harbeth celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and has released a special limited edition version of its Monitor 40.2 to mark the occasion.
‘The Harbeth Monitor 40.2 in its Limited Edition comes in a walnut veneer and has some beautiful added features including the latest WBT-nextgen binding posts, a new-look super-tweeter with protection bar and Harbeth-branded British-made audio-grade poly capacitors,’ said Nikola Markovic, of Audio Magic, which distributes Harbeth in Australia. Internally, the Limited Edition version will also have custom Harbeth cabling connecting the crossover to the drivers and to the rear terminals.
The Harbeth Monitor 40.2 Anniversary is specified as having a frequency response that extends from 35Hz to 20kHz ±3dB, and a sensitivity of 86dBSPL for at one metre for a one watt input. ‘And thanks to its friendly 6 to 8Ω impedance, it’s very easy to drive,’ Markovic told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine.
To differentiate the Harbeth 40th Anniversary edition of the 40.2 from the standard Harbeth 40.2, each speaker will have ‘Harbeth 40th Anniversary Limited Edition’ badges on the front baffle and rear panel, plus a new magnetic ‘Anniversary’ badge on the grille. British company Hi-Fi Racks makes a matching walnut stand specifically for the Monitor 40.2, and this is also available from Audio Magic. The Harbeth Limited Monitor 40.2 Walnut will be available in Australia in March, and will sell for $24,590 per pair (RRP).
